Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (9/8/2017)

As Hurricane Irma makes its way through the Caribbean Islands and approaches the State of Florida, potentially affecting other states as well, I hope and pray that everyone is safe and that the worst of damage is to properties, and not anyone’s health. Please make sure that you have taken any and all precautions as this very scary storm makes its way to the U.S. Take pictures of the inside and outside of your home to limit the defenses an insurer may have against paying for your potential loss. While I hate that the Miami Dolphins will miss a Week 1 game and that I probably will not be able to watch any NFL football at all this weekend, sports is a nice distraction from real world events, but it is not nearly as important as making sure people are safe and healthy. If there’s anything I can do to help anyone in need, please let me know.

Quick thanks to, a popular Norwegian gambling site that offers the best online casino bonus in Norway. Hopefully the lights stay on as long as possible with Irma on its way!
