playwright and poet, has oſten been quoted--and misquoted as well, but is known for his prescient atti- tude about women. He wrote: “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. Tey are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater.


G If you give her


sperm, she will give you a baby. If you give her a house, she will give you a home.


If you give


her grocer- ies, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, will


she give


you her heart. She mult iplies and en- larges what is given to her.”


And that


is what he wrote—oth- ers have added a couple of unprintable lines, but that does not matter. It states quite warmheartedly what women are about. So, Happy Mother’s Day to the mothers of the globe! “What’s next?” my mother used to say with a cheerful smile. What a woman she was!!! It is a mystery about


charming women who have incredible amounts of energy and choose to use it to accom- plish so much for others yet

ing to me, she’d add, in her unforgettably warm voice, in crystal-clear English: “Sweetie, your nose is running; where’s your hankie?” And what energy she had! Tat was the winter when she taught me to ice skate at the truly “rural,” old, New York City’s Manhattan Central Park Ice Pond—many decades be- fore that country-like setting was turned into “Wollman’s Ice Rink.” Wide open frozen pond.

Because English was my mom’s fourth language, it truly amazed me, when I was around six years old, how with Hungarian- speaking relatives she could slip from their bone-rattling, unfamiliar (to me) sounds of that in- credibly difficult language to turn, speak and assist an ancient Austrian- German speaking

would be where you leſt them by a log. Toward evenings, ancient street lights cast long shadows across the crusty ice. Oſten twigs and branches fro- zen on the surface caused major “crashes” of laughing, bunches of skaters. An enterprising soul who sold hot dogs from his stand lined up a relative with a larger stand who sold hot cocoa. He served it into any cup you brought along and in not-so-clean mugs that he sort of washed with the available snow. Many of my friends would reminisce with

snowed and we would drag my “Flexible Flyer” sled to Central Park’s hills where my mom would help my friends and me—and ride down with us—again and again, until the fading light of evening approached and we went home happy and completely exhausted. I felt incredibly proud that my friends would compete to “hug her to bits”

September 24th is National Cherries Jubilee Day.


The English colonists brought cherries to North America in the 1600’s.


The word ‘cherry’ comes from the French word ‘cerise,’ which in turn comes from the Latin words cerasum and Cerasus, the classical name of the modern city Giresun in Turkey.


British Columbia, Canada holds the record for the largest cherry pie at 39,683 lbs.
