One of my recent projects has been to clean up, translate, and publish the daily Yiddish comic strip called "Gimpel Beynish the Matchmaker," which was illustrated by Samuel Zagat. His wife wrote a book about him in which she wrote that he never copyrighted any of his work. You can visit the blog I made for Gimpel, who was an irrepressible, grouchy, incompetent, curious, delightful fellow who was wildly popular on the Bowery back in the day: GimpelBeynish.com and there are two books of his comics which I've published.
Hi friends, mark your calendars, this is going to be a one-time-ever event!
I think this is the fourth year Mappamundi and friends are presenting a Hannukah concert at the Carrboro ArtsCenter. Joining us this year is Roger Lynn Spears on piano. We'll be doing music from our Cabaret Warsaw cd, from Mrs Maccabee's Kitchen (which features new funny lyrics set to folk tunes, ragtime and blues, tangos, swing tunes, even a lonesome cowboy ballad), and some new things altogether. We project all the words as subtitles on the wall so you don't miss any of the jokes.

Yesterday I went to the Iredell County Fairground to the big auction that happens twice a year. Here are some pictures I took.
