A rare, completely non-Jewish-content rant. A sorbet, to cleanse your virtual pallet, if you will.

So, I'm trying to set up FeedBurner so that I can track visits to this blog, and maybe add a bit of extra functionality. I can't believe how hard it is. I mean, all I really want to do is to know who, if anyone, is reading this stuff. But, I can't quite figure out how. I mean, do I really have to set up post-feed redirects? Do I even know what those are?

Let's all take a minute and remember that I have a degree in Computer Science. I was a professional computer programmer for 3 years (and 2 summers during Rabbinical School). I am, as my sister will be only too happy to tell you, a certified geek. If I can't figure this stuff out, how do "normal" people do it? Sheesh.

Anyway, if you experience any trouble with Blog Am in the near future, please tell me via Facebook or at!

You don't look Jewish

For a change of pace, check out Vanessa Hidary, "The Hebrew Mamita." A tiny bit of foul language, for those watching at work.

Not my usual fare, but I found it pretty cool.
