people who need people

Our friend Rachel and her brother Ben have created a really cool app called sleeQo. One of these days, Rachel will post how to pronounce that. We've been having fun with it on Facebook, when it occurred to me, I should try it out where it's actually intended to be used - on the blog! I made it applicable to our blog by using the "5 Things New Olim Should Know" meme (which, thanks to Rachel, I just learned is pronounced "meem." I've been totally uncool by calling it a "meemee" all these years).

Try it out! I'm resisting the temptation to go fill them all in right now. The way things are going lately, I'm going to need "filler"!

5 Things New Olim Should Know

Rules: Post 5 things that a new immigrant to Israel needs to know. No politics!
  1. You pay for everything at the post office. Health care, driver's license, bills, you name it.
  2. Whatever time your appointment is, expect it to start half an hour later. But you're still expected to be on time.
  3. Kosher food is everywhere!
  4. No matter how hot you think it is, it will get hotter.
  5. You will never find more people willing to help you do whatever you need to do. Most will offer, but don't be afraid to ask. The answer will always be either "yes" or "I can't, but I know someone who can"

Awwww. Thanks :-)

In case you didn't see it, you're eligible for a free piece of jewelry - do you want to come by & choose or should I choose for you (if so, let me know if you prefer earrings, a necklace or a bracelet...)?
