N I'm writing this column far in advance because of my trip to ew York to fulfill a singing engagement: I know the United States and Britain have given the Iraqi madman ten days to fully disarm or consequences.

SOmeone please phone and check! You know I am fying everywhere a lot lately . I'm always in a Plane, it seems. Al.On one of my flights I was told this story about a lady on El It made me laugh. I'll pass it along: A little old lady gets on an El AI flight to Israel. Besides a bag and a purse, she's carrying a little dog in a box. She sits down in her seat and places the box on the seat next to her. Astewardess approaches and says "I'm sorry Madam, but you here. I'll have to take it and put it in the hold." )? The little old lady agrees. the flight ends, the stewardess decides to look in on ittle dog, and oh my God! is dead! notifies the pilot who notifies the Tel Aviv airport and reach the director who decides that they will get another to replace this one. old lady will never know. lands, the woman goes to baggage to claim her box her a box with a new dog, an exact replica of her not my dog", she exclaims. yes it is," the captain tells her.

As Russian comedian, YAKOV SMIRNOFF, might put it "What a concept!" (Another thing Yakov commented on recently is about high gasoline prices. "It's much cheaper to just call AAA and have them tow you everywhere," he said.) Getting back to Seeds of Peace the organization will hold its first Seeds of Peace Picnic in Central Florida on Sunday, March 23. The gathering is open to all, and will take place at The Langford Park, 1808 East Central Blvd, in downtown Orlando. It is scheduled from 1-4 p.m Participants are asked to bring traditional ethnic finger foods, blankets and folding chairs. A multi cultural scavenger hunt, Israeli and Arabic dancing, sports and other activities are being planned. Folks, just think attending this picnic is so much more important than marching in a rally for peace. This is actually promoting a future of peace! For more information, contact LEA at 407-646-2086,; or TAREK at 407-657-2812, I asked Tracey what constitutes "ethnic finger foods?" She answered: "Kugel, latkes, barekas, Jewish desserts." What, I wonder, are Jewish desserts? I do have memories of snacks my morn sent me out to play with after school. She had no money to give me for the ice cream man. Yet, when I sat on my Brooklyn, N.Y. stoop with potato latkes in brown paper (to sop up the grease)I was the envy of all the other kids in the neighborhood! I hope to see you at the Seeds Of Peace Picnic on the 23rd and NO! You can't have a bite of my latke! EWISH NEWS can be purchased at the following locations: O CE CouNTY JCC Cascades Florist 851 N.
