Brilliant Work

I have to say, the amount you said about the Kribbitt in that single paragraph is simply outstanding [August/September 2013, Products]. As I was reading I was thinking to myself, with the amount of text left he could not have covered this, that or the other, and lo and behold you did and in fine fashion I must add. Brilliant work and thank you so much for including me in this edition.

Best regards and I hope to meet up with you again one day,

Much Appreciated

Thank you so much Tim – it is a wonderful story and should help educate people about lupus and our work. We really appreciate the coverage! [Cover Story: Issue 108 May/June 2013]

I'm thrilled you brought this to my attention! I have since posted it to Amherst Media's facebook page with 29,000 fans! Thank you so much! [Books: Nikon Speedlight Handbook, May/June 2013]

Amazing Story

Hi Tim: I just saw and read your amazing coverage of the MOTY lunch [American Cancer Society’s Mother of the Year, June 2011]. HUGE thanks for such an extraordinary story. I am indebted to you. What a wonderful keepsake for me--and moreover my daughters. It is truly special--and so are you!

Helping The Disabled

Greetings from Al Hussein Society for the Habilitation/Rehabilitation of the Physically Challenged (AHS) in Jordan.

We have received a copy of the article that you have prepared regarding your visit to AHS. We were so delighted to read your positive comments which show us how much you have enjoyed the time spent with our children.

We highly appreciate your kind words and the provided comprehensive information. Your article will hopefully attract the attention of many people to join us in our efforts and help persons with disabilities in Jordan with the contribution of improving their quality of life.

You are always welcome here as a friend, and hopefully we will continue to cooperate to spread the word about AHS.

Thank you again and best wishes from all the staff of AHS.

Great Information
I just saw this and have enjoyed it so much (Travel: Harrah’s Atlantic City, September 2007).  Lots of great information, extremely useful for prospective travelers, and thoughtful in the way you express your opinions.

Naturally, a little “vanity press” never hurts – Michelle, Alyce and I look as if we are having fun (and we were!).  It was a great pleasure traveling with both of you, and we look forward to the next adventure together!

Touching Base
Thank you for your well-written article regarding the Eve Fenton Love-All Foundation (Pictorial Parade, December 2005). The enlightening column touched base with the heart of my humanitarian mission, namely the disabled indigent children.

The window of opportunity has been given an uplift and showered grace upon the children by the one and only Jules Peimer. Your expertise came forth with a dynamic blast of well-established knowledge.

Adlon great
GREAT piece on Berlin – we love it there! [Travel, January/February 2005] Is that really a night pic of the Brandenburg Gate?? Bill [DeSousa] and I traveled there very year (except this past) since the Adlon Hotel reopened. Now that’s a great hotel!

Glenn Faria, Pres., CHME

Museum awesome
Great piece on Berlin [Travel, January/February 2005] – es ist meine Lieblingstadt! Also loved the Jewish Museum which I visited on my last trip. It was awesome! The Garden of Exile shot you included brought back those haunted memories of my visit there! Glenn [Faria] and I used to go there every year for ITB and always stayed at Hotel Adlon (a Kempinski property) at the Brandburger Tor (Is there anywhere else to stay? inquiring minds want to know.). We would BOTH highly recommend this for a hotel recommendation, also, the Hotel Estrel, Grand Hyatt and the Brandenbergerhof near the Ku-damm. Congrats on a terrific piece!

China Fascinates
I read your article on China and found it fascinating [October 2003]. You were very brave to go there so soon after SARS hit. I hope to be able to go one day.

Emma Pearson Stoner

News of Israel
I wanted to let you know I enjoyed reading the magazine in general and your piece specifically.  I also looked through the archive, and found your piece on Shaare Zedek Medical Center in February's issue particularly moving.

Our website www.im4israel.org was founded to help Israel during these difficult times by helping small vendors who rely on tourism get access to the North American market. We donate a portion of sales to terror victims.

We also began a monthly newsletter, Time Out 4 Israel, with unique articles about all aspects of Israeli life but not the terror specifically, since there's enough coverage of that. We have nearly 2,000 subscribers.

Guy’s Ahead of The Times
New York Times, Weekend Section, page 2, the "On Stage and Off" column [April 4, 2003]. Lead bit, "Premium is the Norm," is about the pricey Premium Seating (such as the $480 VIP seats for The Producers). But Guy Le Bow's Opinion column had a different side to this subject in 15MinutesMagazine in the March issue. Once again, we’re ahead of The Times!

We enjoyed the book
Thank you for the great review of my book, Passover Cookery (February 2003).

I also enjoyed your website; very handsome.

Recommending Applejack
Your magazine is quite interesting and informative. Recently my family visited New York. Before going to the theatre we had dinner in the Applejack Diner advertised in the magazine.

It was an enjoyable experience.  The waitresses were friendly, quick and efficient. And the servings were generous and tasty. I will definitely recommend the place to our friends.

Waving the Flag
I think a lot of people think flag waving is pointless and not the best show of patriotism these days. I wouldn’t fault Tony.

No Manual Saves Money
This is in reference to you review of the Nikon Coolpix 2000 [Products, October 2002]. I understand that while it may be easier to read a printed manual, it is very expensive to print and include a manual like this in all the different models of digicams that Nikon produces. We all pay more for something that is a convenience to some and useless to others. What is a far better solution is that the camera manufacturers charge a little less for the camera and give the option to have a manual mailed for an additional fee. That way, those that would like the convenience are paying the same price, and those that don't want it do not have to pay for it at all. Just a thought.


Serving Stockholm
I was looking around your site and was delighted to see your piece on Stockholm [September 2002]. I just recently completed a Web site for a travel agent client who specializes in Scandinavian destinations www.SwedenbySiv.com and now, having sold myself on its beauty, I plan to go there next summer when the days are long again. I printed out your article to take along.

Great publication
Jules Peimer:
I ended up in Europe in the mid ‘90s and about a year ago started writing features for many international publications. By the way, congratulations on your site on 15MinutesMagazine.com.  It’s a great publication and I was touched by all of the letters written to you.

Lucky in Malaysia
What a wonderful story [Travel, September 2001]!  You really got lucky visiting during a Mega Sale month at Habib Jewels.  I will have to remember that when planning my own trip.  Thank you for your inclusion of Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur and of Lafite into your story.  The  pictures look wonderful as well.

Family Affair
Wow! checked your masthead, and...15MinutesMag is a Family Affair? Neat. I also liked the Myrtle Beach piece [Travel, August 2001]. Funny, I was thinking of organizing another one of my Women's Goddess Weekend retreats in Myrtle Beach (I do them often during the year). I think I'll seriously consider the Villas at Kingston Plantation. Your story was enticing.

The Lucky Ones
Your site is really interesting. Congratulations on keeping this going. I sometimes think that those of us who were spared being crawled all over by VC's were very, very lucky!

I think all of us who've been publishing sites for more than three years should form our own informal alumni association. Kind of like the Boy or Girl Scouts – you know, complete with iron-on patches ("HTML Achievement", "Effective Self-Promotion", "Kindness to Freelancers," and naturally, "Wilderness Endurance"). Once a year, we could have even have a "Jamboree" and trade 'zine publishing war stories :)

Rush to Judgment:
Horse snatching no joke

I THOUGHT your story about Yossi Wircer's adventure was very "cute" (March 2000, Travel). Oi!  Such funny story!  Here's a boyish prank by a nice little bachor (well, ok, a decade after bar mitzvah), who's just a soldier (well, ok, so he was a commander), who took a little tchatchke home from his secret mission (well, ok, it was a valuable colt), without his rebbe's permission (well, ok, it was contrary to direct orders from a commanding officer). 

Such a sweet little practical joke!

I can't find words to tell you how appalled I am at Wircer.  How could you think this story was funny?  More importantly, how could Wircer?  He admitted in his interview at least to two felonies: to felony theft and disobeying a lawful order of a superior -- but this is all some big joke to Mr. Wircer.

Throughout the intifadeh, civilians claimed that the Israeli army treated them and their property badly just because they were civilians (we dismissed them as "just Arabs").  We all discounted the complaints by saying, "Oh, of course the Arabs are going to complain."  Too bad that Wircer's "funny story" reveals the depth of contempt that some commanders in the Army had for civilians and their property.

Obviously the Arab complaints were not as wrong as we were lead to believe. I am disgusted and appalled.

Brad Elbein
Atlanta GA

EDITOR’S NOTE: Besides being disgusted and appalled, you are also precipitative in casting blame.  First, the commander in question was not a yeshiva bochur (religious student). He came from a secular kibbutz in the Galil. Second, a month later he was killed when he stepped on a land mine.

Thank You
Very nice website.

Al Gore, Michael Jordan Family Secrets
Read the column about the Veep and Jewish jokes [Al Gore, Nov. 29, 1999]. I was born and raised in Tennessee and now live in North Carolina, perhaps 20 miles from Michael Jordan’s mother’s home. The Gore family and the Jordan family have lots of secrets that only local people are aware of. I do respect Ms. Jordan’s family values. Apparently she did a great job with her children. But that is where it ends.

When Michael Jordan’s father was robbed and brutally murdered here in North Carolina, local people wondered why the family did not report him missing after several days. Apparently, this family is not so “value-oriented” as they would like us to believe. If my husband was missing for a week or two, I would be worried. But not Ms. Jordan. Michael Jordan’s father had not been reported missing at all. (Lots of secrets and lots of money and image involved.)

Same with the Gore family. Al Gore’s father was a demagog of the worst sort when I was growing up in Tennessee, and his son is nothing but the spawn of the father. I am not surprised to see that they do not instruct their grandchildren. I have 8 grandchildren, and I pray for them more than I did my children. Responsibility does not end when your children grow up and leave home. It only begins with the next generation. Obviously, that theory doesn’t apply to the Gores and Jordans.

Sheraton Means Business
Thanks for the WONDERFUL article about Yiddishpiel! You captured so well the special flavor of Yiddish theater AND the appeal of this company to a broad audience. I know your readers will enjoy it as much as I did.

I also enjoyed reading about the Sheraton City Towers. What a hotel! Makes me want to be a business traveler in Israel, just reading what you wrote about it.

We're Not Poles
I am just as proud of Kissinger as you are. I admire the sonofabitch enormously. Almost as much as I loathe that celestine Barbara Walters. I am not Jewish but I have Jewish friends and find some just ass much a pain in the ass as non-Jews. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH JEWISHNESS. I wish you and other influential opinion-makers would de-emphasize this separation. Jewish-nonJewish should not be a dichotomy. We are not poles in a polar world.

Marco Oliva

Looking Ahead

I didn’t realize it at first but read over the sentence below from Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano full five months before Hurricane Sandy. [Met Council, May 2013]

She said that her department partners with organizations like Met Council to help communities respond to disaster and other hardships.

"Homeland security begins with home town security. And you can’t have home town security without organizations like Met Council." You’re a prophet!

I/we really do appreciate the wonderful review [Books: Coming of Age: A History of the Jewish People in Manitoba, Issue 95 November/December 2009]. You are truly a gutte neshama, one of Winnipeg's finest exports. The next time you are in Winnipeg (DO NOT come in January), please let me know. I would be very happy to see you. Sid Halpern is still around and remembers you fondly. I sent your article to Chaim Rozwaski in Berlin (actually, he was in Winnipeg last April [2009], so he took the nostalgic tour, similar to yours).

Birds of Tel Aviv
You may remember me from Tel-Aviv with the barn-owl project (Travel, July 2004). I just wanted to say thank you for publishing it on the Internet, and to let you know that the project is going very good. There are already barn-owls and falcons in Tel-Aviv where they put the bird houses. Thank you again.

More to come
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our book, Drive: I-95:Exit by Exit Info, Maps, History and Trivia [Books, March 2004]. This is an annual guide so it will be updated and come out every September. We know those who have used it while driving between Boston and Florida enjoy having this "insurance policy" in their front seat with them and especially reading ahead to plan their meals and sleep stops from the comfort of their cars. We look forward to having feedback from people who use the guide and from those who live along the route so we can keep adding insider information each year.

On the fast track
Daniella's piece looks fantastic (July 2003). Thank you very, very much. Turns out you've chosen a perfect candidate for this month’s "15minutes." She just wrapped the leading lady role in Nickelback's new music video coming out worldwide late August and the publicity around the video is going to really fast-track her!

A real gentleman
I just wanted to let you know that Jules Peimer was gracious enough to devote a great deal of time to support my play, Who Killed Johnny Hansen? which ran Off-Off Broadway at the American Theatre of Actors in April. After attending the opening night party and the Jean Dalrymple awards ceremony at Sardi's, he ran a nice piece in your magazine [June 2002].  Jules is a real gentleman and a supporter of the theatre.  Give my regards to Jules the next time you see him!

I finally had “15 minutes” to explore your Magazine!  It's fabulous! Being a New Yorker until a few years ago, you thrilled me with New York shtick and stuff, plus everything else that's delightfully fun.  I'm going to send it along to many other friends and family who will appreciate your site. As a writer, and currently launching the southeast chapter of International Food, Wine & Travel Writers, I wish I were back in NYC to participate with you somehow.  My dining, party, food and wine antennas are always working.

Divine Coincidence
I read Ivor Davis' piece [The London Blitzkrieg, October 2001].  Interestingly, my father was killed by one of those bombs that rained down on London!

He was a Coldstream Guardsman, the English regiment that is the Sovereign’s personal guard.  They trooped the colors in 1939, and his was one of the first regiments sent into France in 1939.  He was later picked up on the beaches of Dunkirk, only to fall victim to one of the last bombs of the war. I was only 4 months so never had the pleasure of knowing him.

My grandparents' house was badly blitzed, and my mother once moved too slowly in a bombing raid.  The doctor told her she was very lucky to be alive, but alive she still is, Thank God.

Stimulating Conversation
Jules Peimer:
I must say that you helped not only to make [Gerry Cooney’s Celebrity Golf Outing in Atlantic City] a success, but you also helped my weekend more enjoyable. For this, I offer my sincerest, heartfelt thanks.

While all the celebrities and golfers enjoyed their golf games, I enjoyed an afternoon of fascinating and very stimulating conversation with you.

Many individuals travel to Atlantic City in hopes of gaining instant wealth. They hope to walk away a big winner.

I was fortunate enough to have acquired something more valuable than any gambler who lady luck visits at the game table.

I acquired knowledge, wisdom and inspiration, and I acquired this from you.

Dyan Cannon Throws A Curve
Subj: Too Bad
Date: 6/30/00 10:02:49 PM Eastern Daylight Time
To: Ivor Davis

LIKE your pieces, but I saw you were taken in by Dyan Cannon. She is, as you probably know by know, practically the number one Hollywood poster girl for Christian evangelists. Been on everything from Pat Robertson to Benny Hinn. And she described that "God's Party" thing as a Christian study group to a Christian evangelist. Someone told me about her shortly before your article and I did a web search and was shocked. I was even more surprised when I saw your article in the LA Jewish Journal.  You obviously don't have to answer¾but out of curiosity¾do you think she tailored her answers to say just what she knew a Jewish publication was willing to hear?


And that ain’t bull
ARE the bull testicles, at $5, kosher bull testicles? I believe the true name is "Rocky Mountain Oysters."

Stanley Allan Sherman

EDITOR’S NOTE: The restaurant's kosher. Bull is a kosher animal. Thus testicles are kosher. But your tip is not – that's why it’s been clipped.

Lots of Comments
Thank you very much for the great article on the Sheraton Jerusalem Plaza. We have received lots of favorable comments, including congratulations from Starwood HQ at White Plains, NY – so obviously they are sitting up and taking notice.

An Outstanding Guy
Congratulations on your ‘zine and thanks for the highly professional way you have displayed my column. It augurs well for the future. I must say, the whole presentation is first class. Furthermore, I know now where I first met you. I often went to observe Earl Wilson when he broadcast from a restaurant, and as a friend I was dedicated to him at all times. When he penned his last book, I was doing a talk show in Philadelphia, and he came out to let me interview him. A wonderful evening.

You Didn’t Cover Me!
It was a nice presentation of Zamira’s event [Music, March 20] and I appreciate mentioning my name. Yet, you’d be doing justice have [sic] you mentioned that I’ve designed Zamira’s 2 CD covers and enclosed manuals (the same way you’ve mentioned in the article about Hanna Levy’s album, designed by her husband) rather than emphasizing an insignificant quoted phrase on my behalf.

For an interview (Oct. 11, 1999) that was conducted via cell phones, in an elementary school parking lot, lasting approximately five minutes, with a deadline fast approaching - this very spontaneous question-and-answer period was well documented and well written. Thank you for your interest and your kind words. My father, sister and I collectively enjoyed our 15 minutes of notoriety.
