I've joined a mission to Israel after my Adventure to Israel trip was canceled. Read an Innocent's Abroad view of the Gaza conflict with a bit of cycling in the mix.
Glad your mom is doing better. Hope she continues to improve. Just talked to my mom, she told me the scoop. Have you been to Seasons 52? It's our favorite Boca restaurant. For fun, go to Boomers and play video games, skeeball, etc. I love it there!
