    Every year Midwood , Brooklyn is treated to the  Brooklyn Half Marathon. Its a 12 mile marathon that starts at the Brooklyn Museum and ends in Coney Island. It runs down Ocean Parkway which is blocked off for the runners. It is always on Shabbos. It was today and I passed by it . It was fun to watch all of the surprised frum Jews crossing through the runners on Ocean Parkway on their way to shul. This video did not capture that , but I saw it. It was especially fun to see the reaction of little kids who once they had made their mad dash through the runners wanted to do it again.

How To Cure Scalp Psoriasis Naturally

   I have not tried this yet but I plan to. I think that it will work. The video is a bit slow moving, but at the end there is a list of what to do. She recommends using warm hemp oil treatments. I have tried olive oil and coconut oil treatments which help a lot . I have tried hemp oil, but I never tried heating up the hemp oil like this video recommends.  Spraying the scalp with apple cider vinegar between oil treatments is also recommended. This young woman says this regiment has controlled her scalp psoriasis for the past three years. I think this is worth a try. I will try it and let you know if it works. I am so sick of using conventional medicine for scalp psoriasis. The cost is awful and it does not always work either. If this could work even MOST of the time it would be worth the effort. Wish me luck.

Leonard Nimoy describes Vulcan Salute

   I wasn't really a Star Trek fan, but I am familiar with the Vulcan salute. Its cool to hear Nimoy tell the story of how the salute was chosen.

Stitching History

     Hedy Strnad  did not survive the shoah, but her sketches did . These sketches were sent to relatives in America in hopes that it would help her find a job in the United States and to escape the Nazis.  6o years later these letters and sketches were found again by their relatives in Milwaukee and then donated to the Jewish Historical Society in Milwaukee. In 2014 the museum worked with the Milwaukee repertory theater  to reproduce these dresses and have a fashion show. These dresses are exquisite. Such creativity was lost. Imagine how  much more creative and beautiful the world would be if these people had not been murdered.

 Though I have included many photos, nothing beats seeing these creations in person. You won't regret it.
