Pro­duc­ing con­tent on the Web since 1995.

some say­ings of ר‘משבצונה“ל

For many years I have worked hard, and strug­gled with mas­ter­ing virtuous. Now, in addi­tion, I’m work­ing on becom­ing more virtual.
This is an expres­sion of that effort.

All pho­tographs are by Mark Hurvitz unless they are obvi­ously not (or credit oth­er­wise is given).

The pho­tos in the ban­ner at the top (only a shal­low sliver of a much larger photo) are either from our home or our trav­els and are offered for their beauty alone (though a brain-teaser for me: “Where was that?”).


Some sig­nif­i­cant dates:

Sto­ries about these dates will appear in the blog as time per­mits. Most dates listed here use the Gre­go­rian cal­en­dar, though I enjoy using, and liv­ing by, the Hebrew cal­en­dar as much as pos­si­ble. I do this not out of “nation­al­ist” or “parochial” inter­ests, though I’m cer­tain they play some role. Rather, I do this because I like feel­ing both the solar and the lunar cycles in my life.

What time is it?

some clocks

Clock requires Netscape

a the­ory on the ori­gin of the seven day week

I’d hoped to find a way to dis­play Swatch Inter­net time here, but have not found the code.

Some use­ful Hebrew cal­en­dar tools on the Web

An Islamic to Chris­t­ian cal­en­dar con­verter. Note that they use “Chris­t­ian” and not “Gre­go­rian”. With the tools above, it’s a two-step process to con­vert a date from the Hebrew cal­en­dar to the Islamic calendar.
