HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, NOVEMBER 26, 2010 PAGE 9A i i By Gloria Yousha -- Call 407-657-9405 or 407.834-8787 Oy, am I fahklempt! ... Who wouldn't be after hear- ing BARBRA STREISAND sing? Streisand was the guest of OPRAHWINFREYonWinfrey's television show last week. The only other guest was ROBERT REDFORD. What a show! I became emotional, espe- cially when a clip from Strei- sand's movie"Yentl"wasplayed. "Papa can you hear me? ... Papa can you see me?... Papa, watch me fly." Those were the lyrics she sang at the movie's end. How proud I felt when across the huge screen came these words (or words to this effect): "Dedicated to my father and all our fathers." Yes! Is the fix in? ... Barbra Streisand As you read this you will know already who won "Dancing With the Stars," but, of course, writing far in advance, I have no idea. This is just a part (with some changes by me) of an Associated Press Internet report: "Brandy earned a perfect score for her.Argentine tango on (last) Monday's 'Dancing With the Stars,' only to learn (last) Tuesday it would be her final dance in the competition. "The 31-year-old singer and actress was eliminated from the hit ABC dance-off just before the final showdown for the mirror ball trophy. Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin will compete for the prize next week. Brandy was speechless when host Tom Bergemn announced she would be leaving the show. (I wasn't.) ',Grey's professional partner, Derek Hough, didn't hide his surprise at Brandy's dismissal: His jaw dropped. Brandy, who was usually at or near the top of the leaderboard was pitted against Palin, who was consistently at the bottom. "Judge Bruno Tonioli said he was shocked at the results. Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is ousted each week. "The Internet has been abuzz in recent days about how Palin , hasbeen able to remain on the show. Some have suggested that votersparticularly supporters of Sarah Palin--have been voting in blocs and manipulating the system. (Hmmrnmm) "Both Palins have denied any organized vote-getting tactics. A new 'Dancing' champ was named on Nov. 23. (Why wa Bristol on the show in the first place? Unfortunately, many teen girls become pregnantand lecture about their mistakes. She is not a star and her only claim to fame is her mother.) I recently received an e-mail .. It was out a new business in our area founded by our own STEVE MAMARCHEV. This e-mail explains Steve's new venture: "Sted Marketing Research announces a new service that provides high quality and insightful research to organiza- tions with restrictive budgets and limited resources. The Orlando-based firm plans on workingw!th start-up and small businesses that are poised to enter new markets and must meet the challenges associated with these opportunities Steve Mamarchev, Sted's founder and managing direc- Steve Mamarchev tar notes, 'top tier marketing research and business intelligence historically has been accessible only to those organizations with substantial financial and human capital resources.We plan on deliveringimpactful, mission-critical research to B2B and B2C entities at a cost that will never exceed $10,000.'

Itwas created by Steve's assistant, EDDIE SOTOMAYOR.Any relation to our new Supreme Court Justice, SONIA SOTOMAYOR?) Speaking earlier of teenagers ... Here's one we can all be proud of I I'm referring to SAMANTHA TRATTNER, age 16, an llth grade student in Seminole High School's Health Academy program. Samantha, a talented performer, will be the featured entertainer at the next meeting of the Con- gregation Ohev Shalom seniors group. The meeting will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5 • in the Real Estate building on the corner of Goddard Avenue and Lee Road. Samanthahas been singing since she was i tot. In pre- school she was nicknamed "The Jukebox." She is a very skilled vocalist who has performed for the Jewish Pavilionandhas been featured in numerous musical theater productions, including many at the JCC. This past summer, Sam attended the song leading program at Camp Kutz, the Samantha Trattner URJ's Leadership camp. This past spring Sam was thrilled to sing with her idol, RICK RECHT, at the Daytona Beach Jewish Heritage Festival. She enjoys singing, dancing, acting, and playing piano and guitar. She also enjoys being in Pizazz, Seminole High's all girl show choir. Sam' is a song leader at the Congregation of Reform Judaism, where she often performs with the CRJ Teen Ensemble. Samantha lives in Lake Mary with her parents, JOANNE FINK andANDY TRATTNER, who are both active members of Orlando's Jewish community, and her brother, JONATHAN. She will be per- forminga combination of familiar Jewish tunes and contemporary Jewish songs, including a couple of her original compositions. Her mother, Joanne, who occasionally freelances as a cantorial soloist, will be harmonizing with Sam on a few of the numbers. What a treat!

On Monday, Nov. 15, the first Monday after Veterans Day (11/11), Golden Corral Restaurants everywhere gave free meals to all American veterans of all wars from 5-9 p.m. My spouse is a Korean war veteran so we took adv'dntage of the "freebie." We go to the Golden Corral Restaurant on Semoran Boulevard near Orlando International Airport often, especially because the world's best waiter works there. His name is ALAN GOREWITZ, and he is one of us. And Alan is from the North just like us! 'hue, it was crowded outside and we waited On a very long line ... but it moved quickly and besides, we found very interesting people to talk to. As we got nearer to the restaurant entrance, a server gave out hot buttered rolls. Yum ... it hit the spot. When we sat down we were delighted to find that Alan was our waiter. He makes sure his customers want for nothing and wait for nothing. He is superbl (I love food ... I love Alan!) One for the road ... Speaking of going out to eat: Shlomo and Yetta were getting ready to go out to dinner. Yetta came out of the bedroom and said to Shlomo, "Darling, do you want me to wear this Chanel suit or shall I put on the Gucci outfit?" "what do I care?" Shlomo replied. Yetta then asked, "Darling, shall I wear my Rolex or my Cartier watch?" "Who gives a darn?" said Shlomo. Yettahen said to Shlomo "Darling, shall I wear my five carat pear or my six carat round diamond?" To which Shlomo responded, "Hey, if you don't get your act together, and soon, we are going to miss the Early Bird Special!" (That's probably how he was able to afford such luxury items.)
