No excuses….maybe just an explanation. Knafeh, falafel, pomme frite, that entire tray of chocolates and the bottle of Reserve du Couvent…ok…several bottles.

Mom Was Right
Kids dream of being action heroes and fairy princesses and parents dream of their kids drinking more milk. Do you have a drink that would make them want to clean their room too?

The Mystery Of Love
Once again, we are left to guess….is this an advertising campaign? Is this a love story? What is the story?
A) Joseph and Michelle met and married. This is his way of re-affirming his love for his wife.
B) Joseph got a little distracted and Michelle found out and Joseph hopes this billboard will help.
C) Michelle is in love with someone else while Joseph is hopelessly in love with Michelle and her family has threatened to kill him if he comes near her. She won’t take his calls so this billboard is his last hope.
D) Joseph is married to the daughter of the owner of the company that he works for and hopes to run one day since there are no boys in her family while Michelle is married to a man who is very influential. Michelle and Joseph have been having a passionate affair but both realize that their future together is impossible. Their names are not really Michelle and Joseph. Oh yeah and “Michelle’s” husband is her lover’s brother and “Joseph” is married to “Michelle’s” uncle’s daughter. The names were changed to protect the guilty.

Is Lebanon ready for the rain? Most Lebanese remain helpless as we watch our greatest natural resource flow into the sea. Could Lebanon be waterless? Is the water of Lebanon worth more than oil?
Oh My My!

The Dark Ages
One day when Lebanon joins the industrialized world, we’ll remember these days and share our stories with our grandchildren about how we used to hesitate to get into elevators, or juggle appliances so as not to overload the generator, we’ll laugh about losing power at the worst/funniest times and of course we’ll wear these dark ages as a badge of our ability to survive the “tough” times. Maybe by then we’ll have decent internet too. Until then, keep your light bulbs, I prefer the soft light of candles.

For your next assignment, you can start working on a comprehensive plan to solve Lebanon’s persistent energy problems, devise a way around the never-ending traffic issues and for extra credit you can tell us how to preserve beautiful historic heritage while expanding Beirut’s skyline, but first it’s snack time…..cookies and milk!

Autumn leaves are falling…..somewhere…but not here. This is Lebanon. Case in point: Canada’s flag has a big red maple leaf, Lebanon’s flag has a cedar tree, an evergreen. There’s a reason!
