HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 22, 2008,PAGE 11A By Gloria Yousha -- Call 407-657-9405 or 407-834,8787 The last time I checked I was a Democrat But Senator John McCain I do have respect for Senator JOHN MCCAIN, and I abso- lutely hate the people in the extreme right who seem to hate him. For instance, ANN COUL- TER, a clown if there ever was one; RUSH LIMBAUGH, he makes me want to throw up; TOM DELAY, belongs in prison and may be there soon; and many more, who feel that McCain is not con- servative enough. I am a Democrat, however, as I've already stated, and don't have to worry about these loud-mouths, but I don't want to sit idly by as they trash a war hero. So, although my vote will not go to McCain, I hope these complete idiots shut up and fade away from public pronouncements. That's all I have to say about that! How many years? I believe World War I lasted all of four years and I think U.S. fighting in World War Two lasted about four years. What is this about the war in Iraq lasting 100 years? (Oy vay!) Doesn't anyone realize that folks in the Middle East (except for Israel ) will not live under a democracy? Why try to force it on them? I want our troops home and soon no make that NOW! I need a laugh Morris had reached 60, so he went to see Dr. Myers for a full medical check-up. When he had finished, Dr. Myers said, "Relax, Morris, you're in very good shape. I can't find anything wrong with you. You'll probably live till you're 100. So how old was your father when he died?" Morris replied, "Did I say he was dead?" Dr. Myers then asked, "How old is your father, is he still active?" "He's 83 and goes jogging and Israeli dancing every week." Morris replied. Dr. Myers was very surprised. "How old was your grand- father when he died?" Morris again answered, "Did I say he was dead, doctor?" Dr. Myers was astonished. "You mean to tell me that you are 60 years old and both your father and grandfather are alive? Is your grandfather active?" Morris replied, "He goes swimming twice a week, and plays a full round of golf every Sunday, weather permit- ting. Not only that, he is 107 years old and next month he is getting married again." Dr. Myers said, "If he's 107 years old, why on earth would your grandfather want to get married?" Morris looked Dr. Myers in the eye andsaid, "Did I say he wanted to?" Believe me, you can't! The JCC Center Players will be presenting"You Can't Take it With You" by MOSS HART and GEORGE S. KAUFMAN on March 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, with each Saturday performance beginning at 8 p.m. and Sundays beginning at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $12 - $16, with group rates available. The show will be performed in the HARRIETT and HY- MEN LAKE Cultural Auditorium at the JCC in Maitland. Some of the cast members are PAULA KEENAN, SHELLY ACKMAN, SUE COHEN, RONALD COLBURN, ELIZABETH LOFTUS and RICK BREESE. I received this e-mail from JCC Cultural Arts Director JENNIFER BECHER and want to pass it along to you: "It's a common occurrence for people to give money to a cause, but it's rare for someone to not only be financially sup- portive but also be involved with the whole process. New to the JCC Center Players ensemble is MAURY LOSCHER, a senior financial consultant for The Private Client Group at National City, a major sponsor of the JCC Cultural Arts Department. "After telling Maur.y about the upcoming show, he de- cided to audition. "This would be Maury's first audition and his first time on stage. "In his spare time Maury has written some plays and has always wanted to try acting. He was cast as Mr. Kirby, the arrogant and uptight father, and has completely surprised the entire cast and crew with his natural stage presence. This being his first show and his first time on stage, he is working with a cast that has been involved in theatre for many years. Maury is a great addition to an extremely talented cast. His dedication and willingness to learn are infectious. " To see Maury and the Jewish Community Center Players production of "You Can't Take It With You," call 407-645-5933, ext. 245 or e-mail JenniferB@ While you're in a show-going mood Who said Orlandoans are not savvy when it comes to the arts? Whoever said it was just plain wrong! That's why I'm going to tell you about another pro- duction playing in Central Florida that is well worth seeing. The comic operetta "Mikado" by Gilbert and Sullivan will be performed by the Helen Stairs Repertory Com- pany at the Helen Stairs Theatre, Sanford, from Feb. 29 through March 9. For ticket information and directions, call the box of- rice at 407-321-8111. And in the same "savvy" way Reading is "art." On Saturday, Feb. 2.3 (tomorrow), from 1 - 3 p.m. CAROLYN COHEN's Art Show and book signing will take place at Urban Think! Bookstore, 625 East Central Boulevard, Orlando. The book signing will be for Levy County cohen's, a book that depicts the beauty of Florida's Levy County. With a drive along the highways, one can always see crops of corn, watermelons, peanuts, cantaloupes and vegetables. and it's home to Cedar Key, noted for its romantic atmo- sphere andannual seafood and art festivals; Chiefland, a small town with a friendlyatmosphere; and Rosewood, noted today for its tours and markers dedicated to those who tragically lost their lives in the racially-motivated violence of the 1920s. Cohens' paintings reflect her African heritage. She has received the John F. Kennedy Special Arts Program award and others from the Art Coalition of Gainesville. the Waldo Arts Festival, and the Department of Cultural and Nature Operations. For further information about this wonderful and informative afternoon, phone the bookstore at 407-650- 8004. One for the road Morris was on a holiday in Atlantic City to celebrate his 70th birthday. It was a nice day so he decided to go for a swim. But he had only been out for five minutes when a huge wave came from nowhere and swept him out to sea. "Oy vay!" cried Morris. "Help! Help me, someone, please. I'm drowning." Fortunately, a lifeguard heard his cries and swam out to him. He gripped Morris tightly and swam back to the shore with him. As soon as he got Morris onto dry land, the lifeguard gave him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Five minutes later, Morris sat up - he was saved. The lifeguard helped Morris to his feet and said, "If I were you, sir, I'd take it easy for the rest of the day. Why don't you go back to your hotel hnd put your feet up?" As the lifeguard turned to walk away, Morris whispered to a lady next to him, "Excuse me, but could you help me, please? How much does one tip for a thing like that?" (Too much living the high life if you ask me.) One more for the road Hannah is talking to her best friend Sharon. They are both still single. "After my recent experiences with some of my dates, Sharon, I firmly believe men are like a fine wine." "Why do you say that?" asks Sharon. "Well," replies Hannah, "they start out as grapes and it's up to women like us to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with." (Makes perfect sense!)
