Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/20/2017)
Well I guess my Saturdays have opened up a bit, as the Florida Gators have had a few rough weeks, making it virtually impossible for the team to have any chance to represent the SEC East at the Championship Game. But the Dolphins were quite the surprise this past week, putting together an amazing comeback against the Atlanta Falcons. There is hope in South Florida. Less hope for the basketball team after starting the season with a tough loss against the Orlando Magic. All-in-all, this is a great time for sports, with so much happening at once. I’m considering going to Turkey at the end of this month. With all the political drama and issues with Visas I’m wondering if anyone has insight, one way or the other, on whether I should even venture to travel over there. Having second thoughts.
