Hey everybody, and welcome back to your Debt Podcast. This is show #63, my name is Jay Fleischman and I would like to welcome you back to the show. Settle in, we've got a good show for you today. First up, I know that Easter and Passover are both just recently passed, well Passover is winding its way down, and Easter is just passed, so for all of you out there who have observed either Easter or Passover, or just observed a nice spring weekend last weekend, I'd like to hope that your holidays and your weekends were all well and prosperous, and healthy and happy and that you had family and friends around you. And even if you didn't, I hope that you took the time to enjoy yourself and everything that your life is.
Well, for my Passover, I'm Jewish, for my Passover holiday, it was a little bit more difficult than usual. And that was one of the reasons why I did not have episode 63 cranked out for you on schedule last week the way that I wanted to. Unfortunately there was a little bit of difficulty in my family. My mom and dad were in a fairly major car accident last Monday, out of state, and so we had to do a little bit of work to get them back where they needed to be, and patched up. And I'm happy to report that my mom is doing well, and my dad is doing well, also, so that was a happy ending to what could have certainly been a far worse outcome. I'm glad that they are both happy and well. But we did have them both around for Passover in house, and what was interesting about Passover, and what's been interesting about most holidays, in fact most meals, lately, is that most meals toss off at least some layer of leftovers. Now, in my younger days, we never used to do anything with leftovers. We'd just kind of leave them in the fridge, wait until they went bad. We'd swear that we were going to take care of them or eat them, or turn them into something else, and we'd eventually just feed them into the garbage, and that would be the end...
