Take a moment to remember those that fought and lost their lives in the Yom Kippur War. Our enemies waited until the Holiest Day to attempt to destroy the Jewish Nation and were still unable to.
With G-d’s help we were able to push them back to the point where our enemies realized that conventional war against Israel was always a losing proposition - Yishai Fleisher.

Above: a medieval manuscript mended with embroidery. Photos via the Uppsala University Library. Here is some information about the manuscript from their page:

The pages of the book are made of parchment and they show typical damage in the form of holes and tears that happened while the parchment was being made. Some time after the book was copied, the holes and tears have been mended artistically with silk of various colours, mainly in blanket stitch as used in embroidery. 

The old mending is in good shape except for those parts which were sewn with black silk. The thread is so fragile that it disintegrates on touch.

Happy Birthday, James Herriot, born 3 October 1916, died 23 February 1995
Seven Quotes
Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.
I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed. These things, to me, are expressions of love.
I love writing about my job because I loved it, and it was a particularly interesting one when I was a young man. It was like holidays with pay to me.
For years I used to bore my wife over lunch with stories about funny incidents.
I became a connoisseur of that nasty thud a manuscript makes when it comes through the letter box.
If a farmer calls me to a sick animal, he couldn’t care less if I were George Bernard Shaw.
That quotation about not having time to stand and stare has never applied to me. I seem to have spent a good part of my life - probably too much - in just standing and staring and I was at it again this morning.
Herriot was a British veterinary surgeon and writer. He used his experiences as a vet to write a series of books of stories about animals and their owners, referred to collectively as All Creatures Great and Small.
