Volume 46 - No. 49
By Friedrich Gomez
According to countless JewishAmerican comedians: “You know you’re Jewish because you you’re as tall as your grandmother by the age of seven! And as tall as your grandfather by 7 ½. Yes, you’re Jewish! Because you have at least six male relatives named David, and also because you thought yelling was normal!”
The aforementioned statements are a staple of many Jewish comedians’ arsenal of jokes, a funny commentary that is almost a requirement in their bag of humor.
Jewish comedians, worldwide, have long poked fun of their own cultural roots – longer than can be remembered. More often than not, the recurring humorous theme has long been: “You know you’re Jewish if . . .” and then the litmus test begins with an assortment of comical queries. According to Jewish-American comedian, Billy Crystal: “You know you’re Jewish because your dog responds to Yiddish! Yes, Yiddish, which is a language with a cough and a spit. Until I was 15, I lived in a raincoat!”
For Billy Crystal, he’s just warming up in the bull pen: “You know you’re Jewish because your mother is always feeding you! Her first words over the phone are always, ‘Are you eating enough?’ Until I was 12, I thought my name was ‘taste this.’ As kids, when we would sneeze, gravy would come out of our noses!” (“Mr. Saturday Night,” Castle Rock Entertainment video, 1992.) Food and close ‘mothering’ have long been a stereotypical truism within the Jewish upbringing, inculcating traits and bonding from infancy onward to adulthood.
As a standard, time-worn cliché has it among Jewish comics: “You know Jesus was Jewish because he was over 30 years old and he still lived at home.”
The Jewish perception of life and its attached responsibilities is sometimes reflected in their humor, such as this classic Jewish anecdote: The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

Priest: “Life begins at conception.” Reverend: “Life begins at birth.” Rabbi: “Life begins when the kids leave home.”
Jewish humor often reflects back on its own ancient, cultural roots, its trials, sufferings, and the task of dealing with stereotypes – many stereotypes they do not deny, but embrace. It appears that one has to be Jewish – or strongly identify with Jewish culture – to genuinely have empathy and insight into the ‘what-and-why’ of their humor. All of which makes for a fascinating study. According to both Jewish and non-Jewish scholars: “Jewish

humour is the long tradition of humour in Judaism, dating back to the Torah and the Midrash from the ancient Middle East.”
Impressive, indeed, for this would grant modern Jewish humor a lineage of well over 4,000 years (of recorded history). Most scholars say a lot longer than that, predating the written word. According to one of the foremost experts on Jewish culture and humor, esteemed scholar and researcher, Rabbi Moshe Waldoks, the rules and the laws of the ancient Talmud, for example, were viewed by many Israelites as being so strict and so overly-elaborate as to be
“absurd and ridiculous to the point of being comical.” This viewpoint continues today with this humorous Jewish commentary which pokes fun at overlyzealous Hebrew law: Question: “Is one permitted to ride in an airplane on the Sabbath?” Answer: “Yes, as long as your seat belt remains fastened. In this case, it is considered that you are not riding, you are ‘wearing’ the plane.”
If you find the above anecdote particularly funny – well, you might be Jewish, so say many Jewish standup comedians, tongue-in-cheek. Rabbi Moshe Waldoks goes on to

say that research reveals how the Jewish culture uses humor to poke fun at their own Hebraic laws, as well as making light of prominent people who may think of themselves as highlyimportant. According to Rabbi Waldoks, Jews enjoy deflating the over-blown egos of people who puff themselves up and who exaggerate their own self-importance.
Israeli scholar, Hillel Halkin, also makes clear in his researched essays that the Jewish people are not afraid to poke fun at themselves as well as their own customs and bylaws. In fact, they often revel in it to the extent that it has long been a humorous pastime. According to Halkin, Jews often mock their own negative stereotypes. For example, the Jewish people, traditionally, love to “kvetch” (Yiddish for “complain”), even for no apparent reason. Complaining is seen as an enjoyable, inextricable part of the Jewish nature, which they love to joke about, as in the following amusing Jewish anecdote: “An old Jewish man riding on a train begins to complain: ‘Oy, am I thirsty. Oy, am I thirsty.’ This complaining continues to the point where it begins to annoy the other non-

There was a knock on the door this past Saturday morning.
I opened it to find a young, welldressed man standing there who said: "Hello sir, I'm a Jehovah's Witness." So I said "Come in and sit down."
I offered him a fresh cup of coffee and asked "What do you want to talk about?"
He said: "Beats the hell out of me! Nobody ever let me in before." ••••• The frequency of sexual activity of senior males depends on where they were born. Statistics just released from Statistics Canada, and The United Nations B.O.H. Team, revealed that: North American men between 60 and 80 years of age, will on average, have sex two to three times per week, (and a small number a lot more), whereas Japanese men, in exactly the same age group, will have sex only once or twice per year if they are lucky.
This has come as very upsetting news to me and most of my buddies at the
Jewish passengers. Finally, an angry Gentile passenger brings a cup of water to the old Jewish man in order to keep him quiet. The Jewish man profusely thanks the man and gulps the water down. With all the other passengers finally feeling satisfied and no longer annoyed, they now begin to hear the old Jewish man repeat over-and-over again, ‘But, oy, was I thirsty! Oy, I’m telling you, was I thirsty!’” Once again, to non-Jewish ears, the commentary of the thirsty man may not seem funny at all to Gentiles. However, if it elicits a hearty laugh well, then, you just might be Jewish, literally or figuratively speaking, as many Jewish comics laughingly assert.
Jewish comedians insist that one has to first realize (and understand) that an inherent funny trait amongst Jewish people is their traditional enjoyment of – just complaining. Jewish comedian and film producer, Woody Allen, was famous for his characters complaining for no reason than to just complain. In his 1977 comedy film, “Annie Hall,” Woody Allen tells a Jewish joke which he feels summarizes Jewish life and the need to complain: “Two elderly women are in a Catskills mountain resort and one of them says, ‘Boy, the food at this place is really terrible!’ The other woman says, ‘Yeah, I know, and golf club, as none of us had any idea that we were Japanese. ••••• IDIOT SIGHTING
I handed the teller at my bank a withdrawal slip for $400.00. I said "May I have large bills, please."

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'it's open!'
His reply: 'I know, I already got that side. ' This was at the Ford dealership in Canton , MS IDIOT SIGHTING
We had to have the garage door repaired.
The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.

such small portions.’” Allen explains the joke that Jews will complain about small portions, even if the food is terrible and they don’t want more of it. The joke plays more to the Jewish sector, while Gentiles – in general – might see it as mildly funny -- if funny at all. The simple need to complain, even without sound reason or rhyme, can be enormously funny in a Jewish comedian’s routine in front of a predominantly Jewish audience. For Gentiles, this type of humor does not particularly play well.
The word ‘complain,’ in Yiddish is called “kvetch,” complaining is called “kvetching.” The inculcated need to complain in the Semitic culture is captured in yet another classic Jewish joke of a Jewish man in a hospital who wants to be transferred to a different hospital: Doctor: “What’s wrong Mr. Rosenburg? Is it the food?” Jewish Patient: “No, the food is fine. I can’t complain.” Doctor: “Is it the room?” Patient: “No, the room is fine. I can’t complain.” Doctor: “Is it the staff?” Patient: “No, everyone on the staff is fine. I can’t complain.” Doctor: “Then, why do you want to be transferred?” Patient: “I can’t complain.” As Jewish comedians are quick
to point out, if you need to complain – even without good reason – then, you might be Jewish.
Jewish-American political commentator, comedian, and TV host, Jon Stewart, loves joking about this cultural aspect of Jewish complaining, comparing it – humorously – to the Black culture: “Black people have blues music, while Jews complain. We (Jews) just never thought about putting it to music.”
History’s greatest and most famous psychoanalyst, the mighty Sigmund Freud (18561939) even found Jewish humor to be worthy of study. The Jewish founder of psychoanalysis analyzed the nature of Jewish humor in his, “Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious” (first published in 1905). So fascinated was Freud that he published another treatise on Jewish humor in the 1928 journal, Humor. Freud found Jewish humor to be intrepid (unafraid) of poking fun at its own people, customs, and belief-systems: “Jewish humor is unique in that its humor is primarily derived from mocking (making fun) of the in-group (Jews) rather than other cultures or people.” The fact that Jewish people

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill.

I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back.
She sighed and went to get the manager, who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but we could not do that kind of thing.' The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change. Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

often turn their comedy inward, rather than outward, reveals how they do not hesitate in poking fun at even their own stereotypes. This continues to this day. This Jewish joke pokes fun at their own culture’s reputation for being overly frugal (cheap): “Did you hear they built the first Starbucks in our native Israel? There’s a fork, instead of a spoon, in the sugar bowl.” When black entertainer, Sammy Davis, Jr. converted to Judaism, Jewish standup comics had a field day: “Mr. Davis, it’s been one year since you became a Jew. You are now due to come in for your booster shot.” This served as another hilarious example of Jewish fearlessness in turning their razor-sharp witticism ‘inward’ as cultural researcher point out.
Far more amazing is the fact that Jewish humor emerged as a flower out of non-fertile soil. How the Jewish sense of humor prevails today and yet traces its roots to the blackest hours of human existence and unspeakable horror is nothing short of incredulous. How is this possible?

Community Invited to Free Valley Center Community Christmas Concert – The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters announce their 5th Annual Christmas Concert at 6pm on Monday, December 18th, to be held at the Maxine Theater in Valley Center. “We invite the community to come out for this festive free concert as a big thank you for supporting the Valley Center music programs in all the various ways that our community does,” said Ruth Stephens, president of the Valley Center / Pauma Music Boosters. “This marks the 5th year that we have a combined concert with bands and choirs to really set off the holiday season with all of their talent and festive music.” Guests will enjoy their holiday favorites and traditional Christmas music from the Valley Center Middle and High School bands and choirs. The show features six performance groups including middle school chorus and jazz band and high school choirs and bands. The Boosters, known for their good cooking, will be selling hot meals, desserts, snacks and drinks, starting at 5pm at the Maxine Theater, which is located at the Valley Center High School, 31322 Cole Grade Road. Seats are first-come, first-serve and go fast, so early arrival is suggested. Come early, choose a seat and then have dinner! Cash and credit are accepted and items range from $1-9. All proceeds support the 800 or so music students in 5th to 12th grades in Valley Center Pauma schools. Also known for fabulous raffle prizes, the concert will feature beautiful baskets and prizes. The Booster program and this event are sponsored by key businesses who support the music program, such as BeSeenWear, Diane Conaway-Re/Max, Left
lenting persecution, torture, slavery, agonizing death from generation upon generation, and even the unspeakable attempts to rid the world completely of Jews through genocide -- the Holocaust -- is hardly the breeding ground for humor. Yet, today, Jewish humor and standup comedians dominate the world of laughter as no other ethnic group. There is no close second. No other cultural group is even a blip on the radar that compares with the Jewish legacy of comedy.
In 1978, TIME magazine estimated that 80% of successful, professional American comics were Jewish. Over 40 centuries of grisly persecution could easily have erased any remnant or speck of optimism and positive outlook in Jewish life and, yet, it has given forth the world’s greatest practitioners and purveyors of laughter, happiness, goodwill, and optimism.
How this came to be, is beyond the scope of human comprehension.
The Jewish resiliency of overcoming great and terrifying ordeals is, perhaps, their saving grace that is found in their mysterious power of humor. The great Jewish literary giant, Saul Bellow (1915-2005), winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize for his extraordinary literary achievements,

Also important to note, on Thursday December 14, the award-winning VCHS Marching Band and Color Guard is being showcased at Disneyland, after being selected for the 5th year to perform in the elite Disneyland Christmas parade. Taxdeductible donations to support the travel expense are appreciated at VCPMB, PO Box 841, Valley Center, CA 92082. The performing arts calendar also includes these additional events: Tuesday, December 19 – VC Bands Christmas Concert at Middle School MPR at 6pm; and Wednesday, December 20 – VC Elementary and Lilac Schools – Middle School MPR at 6pm. Other events the VCPMB and Choirs took part in already were Christmas in the Valley at Bates Nut Farm on Friday, and the VCHS Band and Guard participated in the Escondido Christmas Parade on Saturday. The Valley Center / Pauma Music Boosters is a non-profit organization designed to support music in our Valley Center Schools. Their funds help purchase and maintain hundreds of instruments and performance attire for nearly 800 5th to 12th graders. The Boosters also provide the funds necessary for the students to participate in competitions.
The Booster's annual budget is more than $60,000 to cover expenses of these regularly funded programs, but they have so many more ideas to grow the music program and expose the students to more events. Anyone can become a Booster Member for just $10 which directly supports these students’ efforts. In addition, the group organizes many fundraising opportunities throughout the year: Krispy Krème doughnut sales, cookie dough sales, Jazz Benefit and Concert on March 3, Yankee Candles sales, VC MusicFest slated for Saturday June 2 at Bates Nut Farm, and more. Even the profits generated at this concert’s conces-
wrote that: “Oppressed people (such as the Jews) tend to be witty.”
The culture of Jewish humor flies in the face of their enemies, empowering them to overcome seemingly impossible odds which, in turn, allows them to tweak their noses at their fallen adversaries. When asked to give a short, overview of Jewish history, legendary JewishAmerican comic, Alan King (1927-2004) simply said: “A short summary of every Jewish holiday – They tried to kill us; we won; let’s eat!”
That eating is a comforting, central point in Semitic life cannot be overly exaggerated. As Jewish-American comic great, Jackie Mason, says: “It’s easy to tell the difference between Jews and Gentiles. After a show, all the Gentiles are saying, ‘Have a drink? Want a drink? Let’s have a drink!’ While all the Jews are saying ‘Have you eaten yet? Want a piece of cake? Let’s have some cake!’”
As Jack Mason implies, if you’d rather eat after a Broadway play instead of drinking an alcoholic beverage with friends at a familiar watering hole, well, you just might be Jewish after all.
It also remains a fascinating study that Jewish humor today does not attempt to rid itself of all stereotyping, such as the

Jewish culture’s apparent preoccupation with the importance of food in their lives: “You may be Jewish if you have a spiritual connection with your neighborhood deli.” Or this popular Jewish expression: “You know you were raised Jewish if you know that Sunday night and the night after any Jewish holiday is designated for Chinese food.” If you join both food and complaining together, you have a short description of Jewish life, so say the legions of JewishAmerican comedians, taking to heart the words of Broadway character, Tom Levitt, who says: “Jews don’t sing and pray. They complain. And eat.” If the aforementioned has a familiar ring of truth and humor for you, then you might be Jewish, so say the Jewish comics.
The Jewish people as a whole, are here to stay and their clarion from the mountaintop makes clear their emerging presence through the medium of humor. As Alan King once quipped in mocked seriousness: “The rate of Jewish intermarriage is a serious problem. Scientists estimate that unless something can be done to stop intermarriage, in 100 years, the Jewish people will be reduced to a race of gorgeous

Death Toll on Horses in Wildfire Climbs to 46
North Couty’s Lilac wildfire has claimed at least 46 thoroughbred horses at the San Luis Rey Downs training facility, according to the California Horse Racing Board.
A small number of additional horses remain unaccounted for after escaping from the facility. The racing board previously put the number of horses killed at the facility at 35. The Lilac fire destroyed eight barns at the sprawling, 500-stall facility on Thursday.
Trainer Martine Bellocq also suffered second- and thirddegree burns as she tried to rescue six horses from the facility. She was placed in a medically induced coma at UC San Diego Medical Center on Thursday. Many horses from San Luis Rey Downs are among several hundred living temporarily at the Del Mar Fairgrounds after fleeing the wildfire.
Investigation continues as to what caused the Lilac wildfire. The fire began about 11:15 a.m. off Old Highway 395 about one
mile south of state Route 76 near the entrance to a mobile home park and just a few hundred feet west of southbound Interstate 15, which runs parallel to the highway. The fire was reported by motorists while still quite small, according to initial accounts. Pushed by winds, the blaze ignited brush in a valley between the freeway and the highway and then quickly spread across Old Highway 395 and headed west.
Investigators first try to determine as closely as possible the exact point of origin. Using established scientific methods and often a series of small flags to track a fire’s course, the fire origin can usually be determined quickly and within a few feet of its beginning. One of the first things investigators do is try to eliminate possible causes, such as lightning strikes or power line malfunctions.
San Diego Gas & Electric Co. issued a statement Friday saying its equipment was not at fault. SDG&E equipment was horse.”
“Well,” my father said, “there was that, too.” So my brother and I grew up in a household without a car. The neighbors all had cars — the Kollingses next door had a green 1941Dodge, the VanLaninghams across the street a gray 1936 Plymouth, the Hopsons two doors down a black 1941 Ford — but we had none.
Man About Town
This is a wonderful piece by Michael Gartner, editor of newspapers large and small and president of NBC News. In 1997, he won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing. It is well worth reading, and a few good chuckles are guaranteed. Here goes…
My father never drove a car. Well, that’s not quite right. I should say I never saw him drive a car.
He quit driving in 1927, when he was 25 years old, and the last car he drove was a 1926 Whippet.
“In those days,” he told me when he was in his 90s, “to drive a car you had to do things with your hands, and do things with your feet, and look every which way, and I decided you could walk through life and enjoy it or drive through life and miss it.” At which point my mother, a sometimes salty Irishwoman, chimed in: “Oh, bull—-!” she said. “He hit a
My father, a newspaperman in Des Moines, would take the streetcar to work and, often as not, walk the 3 miles home. If he took the streetcar home, my mother and brother and I would walk the three blocks to the streetcar stop, meet him and walk home together.
My brother, David, was born in 1935, and I was born in 1938, and sometimes, at dinner, we’d ask how come all the neighbors had cars but we had none. “No one in the family drives,” my mother would explain, and that was that. But, sometimes, my father would say, “But as soon as one of you boys turns 16, we’ll get one.” It was as if he wasn’t sure which one of us would turn 16 first.
But, sure enough , my brother turned 16 before I did, so in 1951 my parents bought a used 1950 Chevrolet from a friend who ran the parts department at a Chevy dealership downtown. It was a four-door, white model, stick shift, fender skirts, loaded with everything, and, since my parents didn’t drive, it more or less became my brother’s car. Having a car but not being able to drive
blamed for three of the biggest fires during the 2007 firestorms. One common cause of roadside fires is exhaust embers from a backfiring vehicle. Other causes have been arson or discarded, lit cigarette butts.
Cigarette butts don’t usually ignite brush, experts say. The exception is when humidity levels are extremely low, as they were Thursday morning. A number of wildland arsonists have been responsible for fires over the past few decades -some who do nothing more than throw lit paper from their windows. Others have used simplistic arson devices, sometimes designed to delay ignition for a few minutes until the suspect has left the area. One of the first things investigators do is search for devices or butts at the point of origin.
Investigators are usually able to determine a cause, though the official reports can take months or even years to complete. Such reports can carry huge legal implications, both criminally and in civil court. didn’t bother my father, but it didn’t make sense to my mother. So in 1952, when she was 43 years old, she asked a friend to teach her to drive. She learned in a nearby cemetery, the place where I learned to drive the following year and where, a generation later, I took my two sons to practice driving. The cemetery probably was my father’s idea. “Who can your mother hurt in the cemetery?” I remember him saying more than once. For the next 45 years or so, until she was 90, my mother was the driver in the family. Neither she nor my father had any sense of direction, but he loaded up on maps — though they seldom left the city limits — and appointed himself navigator. It seemed to work.
Still, they both continued to walk a lot. My mother was a devout Catholic, and my father an equally devout agnostic, an arrangement that didn’t seem to bother either of them through their 75 years of marriage. (Yes, 75 years, and they were deeply in love the entire time.) He retired when he was 70, and nearly every morning for the next 20 years or so, he would walk with her the mile to St. Augustin’s Church.
She would walk down and sit in the front pew, and he would wait in the back until he saw which of the parish’s two priests was on duty that morning. If it was the pastor, my father then would go out and take a 2-mile walk, meeting my mother at the end of the service and walking her home.
If it was the assistant pastor, he’d take just a 1-mile walk and then head back

Lyle, as you know, all U. S. flags have been ordered to be at halfstaff for "National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day" today. It stirs my heart to know that our great nation of diverse people can come together at such moments. I've seen numerous people all over North County San Diego carrying and reading copies of The Paper with its front cover story, "I Wept At Pearl Harbor," which I was most honored to write. I am most proud to be in the midst of my fellow writers and military veterans, here at The Paper, like columnist Tom Morrow (U. S. Navy), Paul Van Middlesworth (U. S. Marine Corps), and yourself, Lyle (U. S. Army) - all of whom served in our military armed forces.

to the church. He called the priests “Father Fast” and “Father Slow.”
After he retired, my father almost always accompanied my mother whenever she drove anywhere, even if he had no reason to go along. If she were going to the beauty parlor, he’d sit in the car and read, or go take a stroll or, if it was summer, have her keep the engine running so he could listen to the Cubs game on the radio. In the evening, then, when I’d stop by, he’d explain: “The Cubs lost again. The millionaire on second base made a bad throw to the millionaire on first base, so the multimillionaire on third base scored.”
If she were going to the grocery store, he would go along to carry the bags out — and to make sure she loaded up on ice cream. As I said, he was always the navigator, and once, when he was 95 and she was 88 and still driving, he said to me, “Do you want to know the secret of a long life?” “I guess so,” I said, knowing it probably would be something bizarre. “No left turns,” he said. “What?” I asked.
“No left turns,” he repeated. “Several years ago, your mother and I read an article that said most accidents that old people are in happen when they turn left in front of oncoming traffic. As you get older, your eyesight worsens, and you can lose your depth perception, it said. So your mother and I decided never again to make a left

food, which has a high priority in any Jewish household. More so than normal. Jewish comedians do not deflate this stereotype of having a preoccupation with food but, rather, they embrace it as fact of Jewish life through their comedy routines. As funnyman, Billy Crystal, says: “Our family could be called ‘Dancing With Jews.’ We had names for our Jewish relatives like they had in the movie (Dances With Wolves) that described our eating habits, such as ‘Eats With His Hands,’ or ‘Makes Noise When He Eats’ and ‘Spits When He Talks’ or even ‘Never Buys Retail.’ After dinner a tow truck would move the entire family into the living room.”
Such humor is a commentary that the Jewish culture will not only survive, but it will permeate and become more than compatible with its current, surrounding populace. They are not going anywhere. They are, proudly, here to stay. Their irrepressible signature line since the Holocaust is pure and simple: “Never again.”
The Jewish culture’s belief-system and the importance of being successful in one’s chosen profession is captured in this humorous Jewish line: “In the Jewish doctrine, the fetus only becomes human when it graduates from Medical School.” The importance of success in life is an admirable trait among the Jewish community, as well it should be. Jewish standup comedian, Jackie Mason, once quipped: “My friend is halfPolish and half-Jewish. He’s a janitor, but he owns the building.” Mason’s implication here is that if you have Jewish blood in you, even in part, you’ll find a way to succeed. That is not arrogance, rather, it is Jewish pride, say the Jewish cultural experts and researchers. It is an admirable trait.
That Jewish families have almost a religious affiliation with eating is bountiful material for Jewish comics to work with. Billy Crystal pounces on the opportunity: “Our mother was trying to kill us with fatty foods. And you never called the food by its real name – you called it by what it does to your body. For example, you’ll say, ‘Hey, Mom, pass me some of that ‘burning sensation to my colon.’ This was way before cholesterol so 7-yearolds were having heart attacks.” (“Mr. Saturday Night,” Ibid.) History’s greatest and most legendary Jewish-American comics flourished in an area located in upstate New York called the

Catskill Mountains and commonly referred to as the Borscht Belt. No other piece of real estate on the planet ever gave forth such a constellation of comedy giants as the Borscht Belt, sometimes called “The Jewish Alps.”
exceeding 50 jokes in a span of only eight minutes! Rarely did a joke last more than 24 seconds. He was not only quick, but his jokes were hilariously rich in comedic imagery: “While playing golf today I hit two good balls. I stepped on a rake!” Holding a violin down by his side, it would become more a prop than an instrument.
The Borscht Belt was a legendary proving ground for upcoming Jewish entertainers, as well as a familiar landmark for the seasoned performer. Overall, it was a multi-hotel resort haven for the JewishAmerican families to play, eat, fraternize, and be entertained, from the 1920s onward.
While Henny Youngman was a double threat in that he could play his humor to both Gentiles and Jews alike, he still used the Yiddish verbal-style of construction – such as ending sentences with questions, which is a prominent part of word-play for Jewish comedians: “Someone asked me ‘Why do you Jewish people always answer a question with a question?’ And I said, “Why not?” This exchange would register with both Gentile and Jewish audiences. However, Youngman’s following Yiddish example of (also) answering a question with a question is far different in nature and, consequently, registers more with the Jewish audiences: Rabbi: “Soon the government will blame us all over again. They will blame the Jews and the chimneysweeps.” Gentile: “Why the chimneysweeps?” Rabbi: “Why the Jews?”
The Borscht Belt was a matrix for generating first-magnitude Jewish comedians, such as: Jack Benny, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Billy Crystal, Jerry Lewis, Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers, The Three Stooges, Groucho Marx, Sid Caesar, Danny Kaye, Buddy Hackett, Milton Berle, Gene Wilder, Phil Silvers, Joey Bishop, Rodney Dangerfield, Peter Sellers and countless others.
Borscht Belt humor refers to the rapid-fire delivery, and few could match Jewish comedian, Henny Youngman. He was highly thought of for his hilarious ‘schtick’ (from the Yiddish: shtik). He was the fastest comic of his day, clocked at delivering an astonishing eight or more jokes per minute, sometimes

Once more, if you think the chimneysweep commentary to be funny – well then, you just might be Jewish (at least in the figurative sense).
Youngman’s quick nonstop delivery showed no mercy for his audience which often gasped for air between fits of uncontrolled laughter! He segued to more mainstream, Gentile joketelling and gave his audience no rest period. “My older brotherin-law died. He was a karate expert. Then he joined the Army. The first time he saluted, he killed himself!” His timing was deadly at quick bursts of comedic fire-power, so much so, that his monologues would become the talk of the town at such Jewish digs as Carnegie Deli, Delancey Street, the Friars Club and, of course, the summer resorts at the Borscht Belt. Henny Youngman’s lifelong friend, the legendary Borscht Belt standup comic, Myron Cohen, was his exact opposite. Cohen spoke in a contrived thick Yiddish accent, and was a masterful storyteller who took his measure in setting up his punch lines. Cohen’s popularity would see him appear on the Ed Sullivan Show 26 times, to Youngman’s 20. Even then, Jewish-Americans completely dominated the world of comedy.
At 6’ 2” Youngman was an unusual specimen of his day during the early 1920s, miniaturizing many of his fellow Jewish comedians – who like himself – were largely unknown. These unknown contemporaries of Henny Youngman often stood in the wings, waiting to go on after Youngman completed his set. More often than not, they were short comics, who struggled for recognition, such as Red Buttons who only stood at 5’ 6” or George Burns at 5’ 7” and Don Rickles 5’ 6.” Red Buttons, whose hair color matched his name, was a Borscht Belt favorite-son. He would tell his audience: “Ninety isn’t old. You’re old when your doctor doesn’t X-ray you anymore. He just holds you up to the light!”
In general it was an interesting and well-written article. However, on the first page, in 4 consecutive paragraphs, Matthew uses the word extremist to describe the Puritans. Maybe they were, maybe they weren’t, but I think the word is loaded, judgmental, in the eye of the beholder. Okay, use it once, but 4 times?

Lilac Fire Aftermath
On December 7, Governor Brown declared a state of emergency for San Diego County. His proclamation directs the Office of Emergency Services (OES) and all agencies of state government, including the National Guard, to provide state assistance such as personnel, equipment and facilities that may be required to combat the Lilac Fire.
This action also prompted President Trump and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide direct federal assistance to supplement state and local efforts. That request was immediately approved, freeing up federal aid and assistance to combat the fire and assist in its aftermath.

In those early years, in the 1930s, Henny Youngman could see his fellow Jewish comics in the wings, pacing and waiting to hit their respective marks, hoping for recognition and a bigger salary that comes with it. As for Youngman, he was so good at sustaining a steady volley of quick, short jokes, that one night a man sitting in the darkened audience, hat still on his head, quickly scribbled words on a piece of paper that would forever change Youngman’s career, for the better. The author of the scribbled note that night was none other than Walter Winchell, America’s most powerful newspaper columnist of his era. Winchell’s conferred title, “The King of the One-Liners,” would become a lifelong Henny Youngman trademark name. Walter Winchell, who was also Jewish, wielded almost unlimited power and influence that would become so formidable in his heyday that just a few words from his column could make-orbreak an entertainer’s career, or even close a Broadway play, or any other business venture, such as a restaurant.

humor and comedians continues to this day with such dazzling stars as Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Jon Stewart, Jack Black, Lewis Black, Albert Brooks, Jerry Stiller, Jason Alexander, and legions more. Many of today’s Jewish comedians are cross-over hits with their humorous remarks being “mainstream funny” and not just for the Jewish ears. The great Jewish jokes of old burlesque, vaudeville, and radio sometimes show the wear of years, yet they often can still produce a slight smile, perhaps a soft chuckle, maybe a hearty laugh. Jaded people may make fun of the old humor back then, forgetting that these were the harbingers, the pioneers, the vanguards upon whose shoulder blades all modern comics stand today. We should pay our justified respects and homage to those golden years, long gone and often forgotten. In a recent poll, few millennials recognized the names of Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Sid Caesar, Phil Silvers, Buddy Hackett, Groucho Marx, Rodney Dangerfield, or even Henny Youngman. These illustrious giants often illicit a blank look of total non-recognition from today’s younger generation.

I was never around during those stellar days, either. But, I make it a point to learn more about my country’s proud history and culture through books and videos, all free from our public libraries. You don’t have to be Jewish, or Gentile, or Black, or a member of any other ethnic group to rediscover how truly funny these first “Men On the Moon” were; those early comedians who discovered a new landscape, a new world, and who – like astronauts – charted a newer science of comedy and explored new worlds in which to laugh. Especially through the Golden Age of radio when listeners of Jack Benny, or George Burns were forced to use their imagination – not vision – to follow their every word and adventure. Even the Jewish master, “The Man of a Thousand Voices,” Mel Blanc, created imaginary worlds populated with equally-imaginary characters – simply from his uncanny voice modulations, forcing our imaginations to take wing. Today’s generation of kids (demand) to be entertained, visually, with little or no requirement to use their imagination at all. Progress does not always bring about advancement within the human species.
The jokes of bygone years may be scoffed at, perhaps even ridiculed as “cornball” humor. Sadly, we forget, that these were the early pioneers of comedy, like the Wright Brothers, Marconi, and Edison, we stand upon their shoulders of achievements.
The Borscht Belt legacy is like a gentle whisper from our distant past, riding on the wings of yesteryear, entreating us – to not forget our great humble beginnings. Leave pretense and arrogance at the door. Then, close your eyes, and dare to release your childlike imagination once more so that you can hear the Great Ones, plying their trade from yesteryear: “The doctor gave a man 6 months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, so the doctor gave him another 6 months.” Or this one from long ago, out of the Catskill Mountains, when the Borscht Belt once ruled the world and legendary Jewish comedians stood as kings before their adoring audiences: “The doctor calls his patient, Mrs. Cohen, to complain about her check that ‘bounced,’ telling her on the phone: ‘Mrs. Cohen, your check came back.’ And Mrs. Cohen says, ‘So did my arthritis.’”
You don’t have to be Jewish to find the above, time-worn anecdotes funny. You just need to be eternally young at heart. In some ways, the whole world is Jewish. And that’s a wonderful

The War Plane That Nearly Was Victorious
The company that built Japan’s most formidable aircraft during World War II is the same company whose automobiles today pass up and down freeways and streets all around the world: Mitsubishi.
Mitsubishi's automotive origins date back to 1917, when the Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., introduced the Mitsubishi Model A, Japan's first series-production automobile. An entirely hand-built seven-seater sedan based on the Fiat Tipo 3, it proved expensive compared to its American and European mass-produced rivals, and was discontinued in 1921 after only 22 had been built. In 1934, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding was merged with the Mitsubishi Aircraft Co., a company established in 1920 to manufacture aircraft engines and other parts.
The unified company was known as Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and was the largest private company in Japan. In 1937. Mitsubishi developed the PX33, a prototype sedan for military use. It was the first Japanese-built passenger car with full-time four-wheel drive, a technology the company would return to almost 50 years later in its quest for motorsport and sales success. Enter World War II and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The Mitsubishi A6M, a.k.a. the “Zero,” was the primary aircraft used in the attack as well as subsequent air battles such as the Battle of Midway and the Battle of the Coral Sea.
On June 6, 1942, six months after Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Navy’s Grumman F4F Wildcat fighters went into battle against the Zero. Throughout the Battle of Midway Allied pilots expressed a high level of dissatisfaction with the F4F Wildcat. The Commanding Officer of USS Yorktown noted:
“… The Zero fighters could easily out-maneuver and out-climb the F4F-3, and the consensus of fighter pilot opinion is the F4F-4 is even
more sluggish and slower than the F4F-3. It is also felt that it was a mistake to put 6 guns on the F4F-4 and thus to reduce the rounds per gun. Many of our fighters ran out of ammunition even before the Jap dive bombers arrived over our forces; these were experienced pilots, not novices.” The American military discovered many of the A6M's unique attributes when they recovered a largely intact specimen of an A6M2 Zero on Akutan Island in the Aleutians of Alaska. During an air raid over Dutch Harbor on June 4, 1942, the fighter was hit by ground-based anti-aircraft fire. Losing oil, Flight Petty Officer Tadayoshi Koga attempted an emergency landing on Akutan Island about 20 miles northeast of Dutch Harbor, but his Zero flipped over on soft ground in a sudden crash-landing. The relatively-undamaged fighter was found over a month later by an American salvage team and was shipped to Naval Air Station North Island at Coronado where testing flights of the repaired Zero revealed both strengths and deficiencies in design and performance.
The experts who evaluated the captured Zero found the plane weighed about 5,200 lb., fully loaded, some 2,780 lb., lighter than the Grumman F4F Wildcat, the standard United States Navy fighter of the time.
The Zero's airframe was "built like a fine watch;” the Zero was constructed with flush rivets, and even the guns were flush with the wings. The instrument panel was a "marvel of simplicity ... with no superfluities to distract [the pilot." What most impressed the experts was that the Zero's fuselage and wings were constructed in one piece, unlike the American method that built them separately and joined the two parts together. The Japanese method was much slower, but resulted in a very strong structure and improved close maneuverability. Immediately following the end of the Second World War, the company returned to manufacturing vehicles. Fuso bus production resumed, while a small three-wheeled cargo vehicle called the Mizushima and a scooter called the Silver Pigeon were also developed. However, in 1950, the zaibatsu (Japan's familycontrolled industrial conglomerates) were ordered to be dismantled by the occupying Allied powers, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries was split into three regional companies, each with an involvement in motor vehicle development: West Japan Heavy-Industries, Central Japan Heavy-Industries, and East Japan Heavy-Industries.
Any Navy or Marine fighter pilot that encountered a Zero during the war will attest to the agile, formidability of the aircraft. During World War II, Mitsubishi built a total of 3,879 Zeros, most of which were shot down or destroyed by Allied aircraft, shipboard and land artillery.

Man About Town Cont. from Page 4 turn.”
“What?” I said again.
“No left turns,” he said. “Think about it. Three rights are the same as a left, and that’s a lot safer. So we always make three rights.” “You’re kidding!” I said, and I turned to my mother for support. “No,” she said, “your father is right. We make three rights. It works.”
But then she added: “Except when your father loses count.”
I was driving at the time, and I almost drove off the road as I started laughing. “Loses count?” I asked.
“Yes,” my father admitted, “that sometimes happens. But it’s not a problem. You just make seven rights, and you’re okay again.”
I couldn’t resist. “Do you ever go for 11?” I asked.
“No,” he said ” If we miss it at seven, we just come home and call it a bad day. Besides, nothing in life is so important it can’t be put off another day or another week.” My mother was never in an accident, but one evening she handed me her car keys and said she had decided to quit driving. That was in 1999, when she was 90. She lived four more years, until 2003.
My father died the next year, at 102.
They both died in the bungalow they had moved into in 1937 and bought a few years later for $3,000. (Sixty years later, my brother and I paid $8,000 to have a shower put in the tiny bathroom — the house had never had one. My father would have died then and there if he knew the shower cost nearly three times what he paid for the house.)
He continued to walk daily — he had me get him a treadmill when he was 101 because he was afraid he’d fall on the icy sidewalks but wanted to keep exercising — and he was of sound mind and sound body until the moment he died.
One September afternoon in 2004, he and my son went with me when I had to give a talk in a neighboring town, and it was clear to all three of us that he was wearing out, though we had the usual wide-ranging conversation about politics and newspapers and things in the news. A few weeks earlier, he had told my son, “You know, Mike, the first hundred years are a lot easier than the second hundred.” At one point in our drive that Saturday, he said, “You know, I’m probably not going to live much longer.” “You’re probably right,” I said.
“Why would you say that?” He countered, somewhat irritated.
“Because you’re 102 years old,” I said. “Yes,” he said, “you’re right.” He stayed in bed all the next day. That night, I suggested to my son and daughter that we sit up with him
through the night.
He appreciated it, he said, though at one point, apparently seeing us look gloomy, he said: “I would like to make an announcement. No one in this room is dead yet.”
An hour or so later, he spoke his last words:
“I want you to know,” he said, clearly and lucidly, “that I am in no pain. I am very comfortable. And I have had as happy a life as anyone on this earth could ever have.” A short time later, he died.
I miss him a lot, and I think about him a lot. I’ve wondered now and then how it was that my family and I were so lucky that he lived so long.
I can’t figure out if it was because he walked through life, Or because he quit taking left turns.
Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one’s who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it & if it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” Enjoy Life! It has an expiration date.

Wildfire Always a Threat
Last week, San Diego got scorched again. The Lilac Fire started around noon as a seven to ten acre brush fire that spread through Bonsall like a tidal wave of fire. Within an hour the fire was up to a couple hundred acres then several thousand. It happened so fast that people hardly had time to evacuate. Horses were set to run free so
ty have been heartwarming. While we continue to determine needs as the fires unfold, we have identified a few ways for you to assist—if you are safe and able to do so. Drop off supplies at our Escondido or San Diego Campuses, or order items from our wish lists. Our highest priority needs at the moment include wire crates in good condition, bedding, dog waste bags, paper towels, sturdy trash bags, water bowls and drinking water in jugs or bottles. -You can also make a donation to support our rescue, relief and assistance efforts. We are grateful for our incredible first responders, volunteers and dozens of agencies who are working tirelessly to rescue people and animals in distress. We also thank you, our generous community, who make it possible for San Diego Humane Society to be a lifeline when disaster strikes. The Escondido Campus is at 3450 E. Valley Parkway, Escondido, 92027, 760.888.2275; and San Diego Campus at 5500 Gaines St., San Diego, 92110; 619.299.7012.

they would at least have a chance to live. Smoke darkened the skies and every agency had their emergency service teams working at full speed. Property and pets were lost, but no human lives were taken by the fire. For those of us who were nearby but not at risk, it should serve as a reminder to have an emergency plan in place. Prepare important items in a grab-and-go bag. Think about
healthy snack and supper at the Club; will attend educational field trips like girls in Aviation, STEM Day at Mira Costa College, deep sea fishing, and the San Diego Symphony; learn valuable skills by participating in Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts & Math programs; and participate in fitness, nutrition and stress reduction activities designed to develop healthy lifestyles. Your support creates change for youth like Ariana, our 2017 Youth of the Year, who grew up in a household filled with domestic violence and a father that was in and out of jail. Ariana, now 16, came to the Club in the 6th grade and calls it her “safe place” and her “sanctuary.” She enjoys the enriching programs the Club offers, and is grateful for the many staff members who she calls her guardian angels, that make sure she had the support and encouragement she needed to rise above her circumstances. Your gift of $100, $500, $1,000 or $5,000 can change the course of a young life, youth like Ariana and so many other children in the community. Please consider making a tax deductible
where you will go if you are forced to evacuate. Take the time to consider these things now when you are clear headed. I strongly recommend the San Diego County Emergency App. It is free to download to your smart phone and it provides area specific notices, maps, shelter information. It also guides you through preparing an emergency plan with your family. Wildfire is a common threat in our region so be ready when it comes your way.

It happened 2,000 years ago, but it’s still exciting news today, because God sending His Son solved several mysteries people wondered about then, and now.
Boo is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 2 year old, 8-1/2 pound, female, Domestic Medium Hair cat with a Brown Tabby coat.
Boo is a big, smushy, love bug. She never misses a chance to snuggle. She just wants to love. Boo was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from another shelter through the FOCAS program. The $100 adoption fee for Boo includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.
Baylee, an 8-year-old Domestic Short Hair mix, is looking for a loving home to call her own. She may be a bit shy at first, but once she gets to know someone, she is a wonderful, loving companion. She enjoys getting pet and spending time with her human friends. She would love to find an adult only home or with older, respectful children. If you have a quiet home and a lot of love to give, Baylee is the gal for you! Her adoption fee includes her spay, permanent microchip identification, current vaccinations, 30 days worry free insurance from Trupanion Insurance and a certificate for a free veterinary exam! Baylee is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.
Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside The Call of Christmas
Christmas seemed magical when we were growing up, didn’t it? The line from Frosty the Snowman even says so: “There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found.” Santa Claus could deliver just the right present to every child in the whole world, all in one night. Reindeer could fly. Rudolph’s nose was a fog lamp. But when you learn the whole story of Christmas, you see that Christmas wasn’t magical, it was intentional, and it was supernatural, orchestrated by a God who so loved the world that He sent His One and Only Son that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have everlasting life.
The first mystery solved by Jesus’ birth was about the nature of the universe. Christ’s birth proved that there is more to this world than our five senses can measure. Something we could not touch, taste, smell or see became someone lying in a manager. The second mystery Christmas solved is that out there in the realm we can’t touch, taste, smell or see is a God who really exists. The Immaterial God crossed the material bearer into our world. People touched Him. They saw Him. Mary smelled His diaper. God must be out there because He came down here.
The third mystery Christmas solved is the one about whether your life matters or not. It does! 2,000 years ago, God came to earth because the people of earth matter to Him. That is incredibly important because it means that we are incredibly important to God. You matter to Him! Merry Christmas!

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond - Stay safe over the holidays
The holiday season is always a special time of year. It is also a time when busy people become careless and vulnerable to theft and other holiday crime. We can never be too careful, too prepared or too aware. Please share this important safety information with family, friends and neighbors. If you are traveling, set automatic timers for lights and radios. Ask a neighbor to watch your home, collect mail and paper, and occasionally park their car in your driveway. If you are shopping, be alert and aware of your surroundings and park in well-lighted areas
close to stores while storing your purchases and valuable in the trunk. Carry your purse or wallet close to your body and have your keys out and ready when you return to your vehicle.
After the holidays, pay close attention to bills and report unauthorized charges. Mark your new gifts with your California identification number and photograph these items and add them to your home inventory. For more tips or to schedule a Neighborhood Watch meeting, please call the City’s Crime Prevention Unit at (760) 744-1050, ext. 3111. On behalf of the San Marcos City Council, have a safe and happy holiday!

STAY ALERT! They walk among us......and they VOTE, and have babies. The Year was 1955, ONLY 62 YEARS AGO!
Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter? If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.
When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage. Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.
I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They're even making electric typewriters now.
It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.
It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.
I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.
Thank goodness I won't live to see the
day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government. The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on. There is no sense going on short trips any more for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.
No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.
If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it. Troublesome Tools
SKILLSAW: A portable cutting tool used to make boards too short.
BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.
WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh damnt'. Will easily wind a tee shirt off your back.
DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. CHANNEL LOCKS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters. HACK SAW: One of a family of cut-

OTC Presents Miracle on 34th Street – A Radio Play
Beginning on Friday, December 15, and running through Saturday, December 23, Oceanside Theatre Company presents Miracle on 34th Street – A Radio Play. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays, at 7:30 pm, and on Sunday, December 17, at 2:00 pm. This holiday favorite is based on the 1947 Lux Radio Hour production of the classic movie. In the film, a man calling himself Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade and is such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain’s main store in midtown Manhattan.

It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course (cussing), the more dismal your future becomes. VISE GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand. OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for igniting various flammable objects in your shop and creating a fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race. TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity. Very effective for digit removal! HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge. Also excels at amputations. PVC PIPE CUTTER: A tool used to make plastic pipe too short.
HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent to the object we are trying to hit. Also very effective at fingernail removal.
UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door. Works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use. These can also be used to initiate a trip to the emergency room so a doctor can sew up the damage. Yes, the new list is out!

A Tradition of Giving - Rancho Bernardo Woman’s Club Board Members Lucille Rabinowitz (President), Toni Bevan, Roselyn Morgan, Fern Kravets, Jane Lemen, and Sylvia Kahn held some of the 60 children’s books and 75 stuffed animals donated by members at the club’s December 7th Holiday Luncheon. Following the luncheon the books were delivered to Rady Children’s Hospital, and the stuffed animals were delivered to the Ronald McDonald House where they will be added to welcome baskets given to families who have seriously ill children being treated at Rady Children’s Hospital. Since starting this philanthropy project in 2012, the club has donated hundreds of stuffed animals and children’s books to these organizations. The club also funds college education scholarships for young women and contributes to local charities. Membership in the non-profit service club is open to women residing in Rancho Bernardo and nearby communities.

2009. It has 4GB of DDRII RAM, a DVD-R/W and an Ethernet cable connection, our Cox Internet service (30Gbits/sec). I pay Carbonite $57 a year to keep my files backed up on the “cloud” and so far I’ve never had to use it. Every column, invoice, quote, and letter and that I’ve created in the past fifteen years is on that hard drive along with pictures, programs, Windows 7 and financials. All of this takes a bit over 100GB of hard drive space or about 25% of my 500GB hard drive. If we were to reformat my PCs hard drive, reinstall Windows 7 or 10 Pro and put it up for sale in our store it would be worth about $220 including a one year warranty. If a faster PC, more RAM, a bigger hard drive or a newer operating system would help me do my job better or quicker I wouldn’t hesitate to “upgrade” but the truth is, upgrading would not help me at all. It would not allow me to go any faster on the Internet and it would not perform the off line tasks I do (word, excel, power point, quick books) any faster. As far as “upgrading” to Windows 10, Windows 7 is just as fast and secure and a lot less snoopy.

from upgraded hardware or a newer faster CPU, but like 95% of business and home users, it would not do me any good to upgrade because, for what I do, my seven year old PC works as well for me as any new PC.
The point is that if you have a home or business computer that was manufactured after 2009, you probably don’t need a new PC. If your old PC is running slow or acting up, it likely can be restored to better than new performance for less than half the cost of a new one. With a clean Win7 or 10 operating system and four GB of RAM, a seven year old PC can be plenty quick. If you really do need a new PC or
an upgraded refurb, your old one probably has value as a trade in.
There are many hardware and software factors that can affect the performance of your PC. To find out what’s wrong with your PC (desk top or notebook), what it would cost to fix it, whether it’s worth fixing and what it would be worth as a trade-in just bring it in to our shop. Those questions can normally be answered while you wait and there is no charge. If you do happen to be one of the five to ten percent of PC users who actually need a brand spanking new, really fast PC, you have come to the right place.
