A post which can be considered a staple of our renovations

Good afternoon, Our Shiputzim fans!

Please follow me upstairs as we begin our tour of today’s developments.

And we’re on our way…

As you can see, YZG and ASG spent a while on the porch screens this morning. Here’s what they accomplished today:


And moving a bit to the left, we have:


And, lastly, here’s a close-up for your viewing pleasure:


(Did you see the staple in the middle of the picture?)

YZG and his talented team of assistants still have one more section left to do, before moving on to the finishing touches, but they probably won’t get to it until after Tisha B’Av.

On a related note, I should point out that although we obviously will not be doing any actual renovations during the Nine Days, don’t let that prevent you from stopping by. We hope to get some [relatively] off-topic posts out next week, but no promises.

In the meantime, we’re taking requests: What would you like to read about?

See you next time….


  1. Here are two more pictures (on the left of the two pictures above):

  2. What would you like to read about?

    about 5 minutes a day is fine with me

  3. Very funny.


    Shabbat Shalom.

  4. I finally caught up on the Blog. All you wrote is fine--just keep it up.
    I understand that you need input on what to write about. Maybe you could give us a book review on a book you've read recently or a movie you saw. We are open to your evaluations of things. Maybe a travel review of that latest tiyul you've been on.
    I just went (yesterday) to "less known places in Jerusalem". It was amazing. The places were not "less known" but rather were completely unknown. Among the places I was at were the Saint Etien Monastary, the German Schmidt Girls School, and a French convent (all these are in Yerushalayim). All were very very relevant for Jews (though I know you are really doubtful). Really cool. If you're interested in any details, feel free to ask.
    I understand you had a visitor yesterday afternoon. Did she behave? Does it seem as if she was raised properly? People want to know...
    Well that's it for now.

  6. Thanks for your comment.

    I'm glad to hear that you had such a nice time on the tiyul yesterday.

    Yes, our visitor behaved quite nicely and was a credit to her parents, her older siblings and her nieces and nephews. (Although you can tell her that if she doesn't read the blog, she'll never know when people are talking about her....)
