Shame on me for not noting the 73rd anniversary of my parents’ wedding yesterday. They were married on April 12, 1946 in a “Displaced Persons” camp in Austria less than a year after the end of World War II. I probably shouldn’t strike this tone on the Jewish Sabbath, but my message to Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites remains the same: Zolst Leegen En Drerd. Choke on these facts:
Jews comprise just two-tenths of one percent of the world population. They have been awarded:
37% of Nobel Prizes in Economics
26% of Nobel Prizes in Physics
25% of Nobel Prizes in Medicine
19% of Nobel Prizes in Chemistry
25% of Fields Medals, the ultimate honor in Mathematics
Shame on me for not noting the end of the first work week as a retired person for my best friend, Dr. Zal. May you have many, many weeks in retirement!
The Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach, Florida is currently in session and, of course, Motor Trend is televising much of it. Yesterday, the day was deemed to be “Family Friday” for the audience who were encouraged to send photos of family cars with the hashtag #FamilyFriday. Silly me sent this tweet (shame on me?):
Only two in my family, does this count? #FamilyFriday
The gracious and beyond gorgeous Cristy Lee re-tweeted my tweet and I received dozens of likes. Of course, I wish people would follow through, find the Disaffected Musings link and read/follow this blog. One step at a time, I guess.
If you like this blog please tell your friends and share the blog URL (https://disaffectedmusings.com). Thanks.
Sorry, but something copied from Twitter ruined the spacing for the rest of the post.

The reason the Royal Lancer is called Custom Royal Lancer is because that is actually the name of the car, the name Dodge gave it in 1956. I remember them making note of that during the auction and, also, you can see the script on the tail fins says “Custom Royal”.
Thank you, sir.
As best I can figure, about 0.193% of the world’s population is Jewish, so, those numbers say a lot… I think of the entertainment industry… I would guess a large percentage of Grammy winners, too. You may already have this book, but, in quest for knowledge, I ran across it.. http://www.jewishachievement.com/about/about.html
Yes, I wrote two-tenths of one percent.
I missed that, totally.. probably because you spelled it out and I was looking for numbers… my mind works like that, I guess.. ha, ha…
At least you have a mind…
What a bargain for only $20,000. Someone went home with a classic beauty!
I agree wholeheartedly, sir.
