    It’s… a horn.

    But am I the only one who saw the horn and the honey and immediately thought of mead?

    It’s a shofar, ram’s horn blown at the start of the high holy days, the “Ten Days of Awe.” Today is Rosh Hashanah, start of the new year of  5774.

    Rosh Hashanah falls on the 1st of Tishrei, which is the 7th month of the Hebrew Calendar.  The first month is Nissan, the month that contains Passover and begins after the Spring Equinox.  Right?

    If I may ask a dumb question: why wait until the year is half over to celebrate the New Year?  Wouldn’t that be kinda’ like celebrating New Year’s Eve on June 30th?

    It’s an i-Phone 0.  Kind of short on apps, but it did call you to prayer services on time.

    Sounds more like an iWatch then.

    And now starts the Sabbath year. I haven’t mowed my lawn since July so I got an early start.
