Goodbye, friends? No!

No way, no how!  Our new slogan here in MamaLand is, "You say goodbye... I say 'Hello, New Way of Connecting with Friends no thanks to Google's FriendConnect.'"  (seder or no seder)

To be honest, I have no idea what the imminent demise of Google FriendConnect means to me, as a blogger, but the thought of a single one of you missing a post makes me ever so sad. Luckily, we have options!  Oy, do we have options for you.

Hmm... what are the options?

Oh, yeah!

1.  If you're reading this in a blog reader, you're already okay; I'm not going nowhere, as they say in my old 'hood (I was raised in a Greek and Italian neighbourhood, I swear!).
2.  If you're reading this the old-fashioned way, in my blog itself, look way, WAY up to the top-left corner.  Do you see the word "Follow"?  Yeah, that one.  Click it!  Then click "Share" right next to it... just because you're nice.
3.  You can subscribe by email!  How sweet is that???

Enter your email address:


4. Or...you can hit this great big orange button to see all your fabulous RSS-feeding options:

But really, why limit yourself to only one option???  Go ahead and do all 4, just in case.  That way, you can be sure you will never miss a scintillating minute of our...

Adventures...

MamaLand!!!

New slogan:

Keeping the JBlogosphere lashon hora free since 2006,
unlike some other Jewish blogs I could name.
(ha ha ha... get it?)

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
