I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and time with family and friends, regardless of their religion or lack thereof. Marge didn't do a jelly bean hunt for me this year that I can recap, so instead, we'll celebrate with a very alarming photo of my dad as the Easter bunny, aka Jason Voorhees and Peter… Continue reading Happy Easter/Chag Sameach!
