Hi Everyone, I’ve had to take a little break. It was totally unintentional and I’m not sure if I’m really back. I’m looking after an elderly person with dementia, I’m not a full-time carer, but it is taking its toll on me. Before someone tells me to just step away ...

Because I haven’t finished my current book I’m going to ramble a bit about what I did on the weekend. It was a fun time, but I’m seriously exhausted and there’s so much happening this week. Limmud Oz is a conference, although they bill it as a festival, that gives ...

And yes, it’s still the Alan Turing book. Last week I thought I had three weeks more to go, but I’m not sure I want to revise that time frame. I still think it’ll be three weeks, but three weeks from today. I’ve lost track of how many weeks I’ve ...
