I was not raised in the Jewish faith, but I have been attending services for about four years now. I consider it a very special part of my life and am truly in awe of the wonderful traditions.

Good for you Kevin. And that's coming from a Christian.

Happy 4,768th Birthday Adam! I would guess Eve was born some time after ... due to the rib thing.

Mmm-hmm... mankind has only been around 5768 years. Surprisingly, that's not the most incredulous thing I've heard people tell me in Asheville this week.

Please tell me, is EVERYONE in Asheville a blue-collar, uneducated, gullible, unquestioning redneck?
