Pesach: Passover and EasterPassover is the 8 day
observance commemorating the freedom and exodus of the
Israelites from Egypt during the reign of the Pharaoh Ramses
II. A time of family gatherings and lavish meals called
Seders, the story of Passover is retold through the reading of
the Haggadah. With its special foods, songs, and customs, the
Seder is the focal point of the Passover celebration.
Celebrated the 15th night of the Jewish month of Nissan
(Hebrew Calendar), usually in April
This story is told
in Exodus, Ch. 1-15. Many of the Pesach observances are
instituted in Chs. 12-15.
The name "Pesach"
(PAY-sahch, with a "ch" as in the Scottich "loch") comes from
the Hebrew root Peh-Samech-Chet , meaning to pass through, to
pass over, to exempt or to spare. It refers to the fact that
G-d "passed over" the houses of the Jews when he was slaying
the firstborn of Egypt. In English, the holiday is known as
Passover. "Pesach" is also the name of the sacrificial
offering (a lamb) that was made in the Temple on this holiday.
The holiday is also referred to as Chag he-Aviv , (the Spring
Festival), Chag ha-Matzoth , (the Festival of Matzahs), and
Z'man Cherutenu , (the Time of Our Freedom) (again, all with
those Scottish "ch"s).
"For God so loved the world
that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in
Him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send
His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it" (John
The Last Supper (Mark chapter 14) So the two
disciples went on ahead into the city and found everything
just as Jesus had said, and they prepared the Passover supper
The Resurrection - Jesus Is Risen! (Mark
chapter 16 ) The next evening, when the Sabbath ended, Mary
Magdalene, Salome and Mary the mother of James went out and
purchased burial spices to put on Jesus' body. Very early on
Sunday morning, just at sunrise, they came to the tomb. On the
way they were discussing who would roll the stone away from
the entrance to the tomb. But when they arrived, they looked
up and saw that the stone - a very large one - had already
been rolled aside. So they entered the tomb, and there on the
right sat a young man clothed in a white robe. The women were
startled, but the angel said, "Do not be so surprised. You are
looking for Jesus, the Nazarene, who was crucified. He isn't
here! He has been raised from the dead! Look, this is where
they laid His body. Now go and give this message to His
disciples, including Peter: Jesus is going ahead of you to
Galilee. You will see Him there, just as He told you before He
died!" The women fled from the tomb, trembling and bewildered,
saying nothing to anyone because they were too frightened to
(the New Living Translation)

The photo on the top of page 1 was taken in my wet soggy
basement after the flood last year- I had my sweats on and ran
to get my scarf and antique hat for a special Easter picture.
Behind me are shelves filled with art supplies and bubble wrap
protecting some other things I had in the basement.
Things I love:
- Seeing Charley do his thing at Comerica Park
- Sitting home at night watching a good TV program, eating
popcorn and chocolate
- Meeting a new friend and praying together
- Feeling the warmth of the sun through the car windows

Things I hate:
- My doggy dying .
- Having a dirty car on a sunny day .

GOOD BYE TO LUCY On April 6, 2006, at about 12:30pm, my 13-year
old, quadriplegic, Shihtzu doggy, Lucy transitioned to doggie
heaven. Her birthday was just 3 days before. I got her when
she was about 3 years old. In 2001, something took place and
Lucy wasn't able to stand up any longer. Her leg joints
apparently became disconnected and she made do by lying on the
floor, navigating by throwing her bottom out and moving like a
mermaid. A vet diagnosed her with lupus (I'm still not totally
convinced of that), an immune system disease. The vet
suggested that I consider putting her down, but i knew she was
not ready then.
That was 5 years ago. All this time
her head, neck, body, and lungs were very strong. She would
let me know by barking if she had to go out or eat or wanted
to be where the action was. She had a lot of personality and
was a sweeheart. Lucy had been the companion of Pudding Pop
(in his later years), who was Charley's dog when Charley was
little. Pudding Pop died at age 16 with his chin on Lucy's
back. The dogs took to each other immediately when they met
and I'd like to think they are back together again.
Good bye, dear Lucy, sweet dreams. I'll miss you.
Love, Peggy Jo

Will the Tigers Let Charley Sing??? Today is oppening day and the Tigers are

their singing restrictions on Charley?

For those who don?t know, for the past seven
years, Charley, also known as The Singing Hot Dog Man, has
been serenading fans since the final year of Tiger stadium,
and then at Comerica Park. He is known, and loved, for his
operatic cry of Ho-o-o-t D-a-w-g! and emphatic promotion of
hot dog tradition. In addition to the opera, another part of
Charley's shtick is a strong sales pitch. If you're watching a
ball game, you had better be eating a hot dog and it'd better
have only mustard on it. Don't get offended it's all meant in
