Happy Easter!!!

I wanted to send my best wishes everyone celebrating the holiday today.  The bunny came to the Turley house and left baskets overflowing with chocolates and candies, including a doggie basket for Luna. The gifts also included some new additions like a couple bottles of wine for an aging clientele.

We are “double dippers” who celebrate Passover and Easter. From our Jewish side, my wife made her legendary Matzo ball soup and brisket. As usual, I passed on the gefilte fish and chopped liver, but I devoured the Apple Kugel.

From the Catholic side, we will have my family’s traditional mustard-coating lamb, cream spinach, and other dishes. We have an Easter Egg cake and other desserts to go with the horn-o-plenty left by the bunny.

We have a gorgeous Spring day for the holiday today. It feels like a much needed rebirth after a long and difficult winter.

Best wishes to everyone today and Happy Easter!

  1. If you don’t like gefilte fish you’re not making it right. Mine involves lots of onions, garlic, and crushed red pepper, and doesn’t even need horseradish.

    I find that people who say they don’t like gefilte fish have generally only ever had the stuff that comes in a jar, or, worse, a can. In my experience the canned stuff is inedible, and the jarred brands range from “inedible” to “unobjectionable”. I’ve only ever found one jarred brand that I would call actually good.

  2. After all the Easters I celebrated with colored eggs and chocolate, I wish I had truly imparted to my son the astonishing Mercy of Jesus sacrificing himself on the cross to cover our sins and be born again; renewed and restored. True contemplation of this leaves me profoundly humbled and speechless.

  3. Don’t eat rabbits at dinner on Easter. You will get taken to Hell on a sled pulled by rabbits.

  4. Just because Jesus died for man’s sin & forgive man doesn’t mean this year you should attempt to Sin more then you did last year!

    Happy Easter
    He is Risen!

    Matthew 28: 1-7

    1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

    2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

    5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

    Wishing you and yours a joyous and blessed Easter.

    Please pray for the persecuted this Easter, for our country, for our culture, for our families.
    God bless you on this Easter Sunday.

  5. “Celebrating the miracle of Easter, the beauty of God’s creation and the blessing of life.”

    “Happy Easter and God bless.”

  6. “I wanted to send my best wishes everyone celebrating the holiday today.”

    And to you and Darren.

    Beautiful table of “gifts.”

  7. The story of the Exodus of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt, thousands of years ago, resonates loudly even today. Freedom is what it’s about, religious, but even moreso, the freedom of the human spirit. And by the way, gefilte fish with a generous amount of horseradish (red or white) can be very tasty – and don’t forget to try some Matzoh —

  9. I am not of the religious type, but to those who are, I wish you a happy Easter and or Passover! These are joyous occasions for family, friends and traditions.

  10. Happy Easter! Thank you for your ongoing critical commentary – please keep it up.

  11. I’m with you on the gefilte fish, but what is so wrong with the chopped liver? Try it, you’ll love it. Eat it already!

    1. I will have to try chopped liver. I like pate, as well as liver and onions stewed in tomato juice.

  12. Happy Easter to all….and remember what it is all about….and teach your Children.

    Add to your “To Do List” a Moravian Easter Sunrise Service such as is done by Moravian Churches in North Carolina…..followed by a big family Breakfast.

    They are done at Dawn in the Cemetery….with Band, Choir, Minister, and Congregation walking from in front of the church in a Procession to the Cemetery where an open air Service is held as the Sun rises.

  13. Happy Easter! Deep gratitude for all you and your team do to protect liberty, free speech and the integrity of our legal and political systems!
