Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (2/17/2017)
I hope everyone had a memorable Valentine’s Day. My fiancee was out of town, so we will be celebrating this evening. But isn’t every day truly supposed to be Valentine’s Day when you appreciate each other? Enough of that mushiness. NBA All Star weekend approaches and it’s been a pretty good regular season thus far. Count me in as one of the people who can’t see the Golden State Warriors not winning the championship this year.
