Interesting Spider we found in Key West, Florida. I called it the matzah spider as we found it on pesach - But the real world knows it as a Crab Spider

Your misc post is the best so far! You look like you fit right in with the crowd in that "Beis Hamikdash" picture, would think your from a Muslim country. Where is that crazy mountain pass that you drove through, is that your picture? Seven lakes pictures are great too.

Thanks,
No, Its not my pic, Googled it as I drove it at night in the rain...Scariest drive of my Life. Scarier than riding on the roof of an old rickety bus without brakes down a steep mountain on a horrible road in Nepal.
Its called the Atlas Mountain Pass

It was new years day, the hospital was closed (with a chain on the doors)
Surgeon (who is a friend of ours) had to gather the anesthesiologists, nurses, guards etc on a day thats considered the most important holiday of the year.

So here is an idea, I spent way to much time posting pics here. I am willing to give links to my FB, Dropbox & Google+ to a DDF'r with high standing to post pics on my behalf. Anyone?
