Although I’m not a fan of shidduch resumes and photos, it’s unfortunately a reality in our fast-paced and high-tech world. Resumes don’t really depict the whole story, but merely serve as a marketing tool, slanted by the writer. To make matters worse, the required photos are now adding insult to injury and are a recipe for disaster. I have found that 90% of shidduch photos get disqualified from the onset – because boys and girls seem to have an image in their head of what their spouse should look like. The process is equivalent to catalogue shopping, in which most photos just don’t make the cut. If you want a blue top or pink skirt, just search for it on Amazon and you can probably find something suitable at the right price. Unfortunately, Amazon does not yet have a division for finding the perfect spouse. As a matter of fact, Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, just settled his own divorce.

Although summer is a fun-filled season, it’s laden with mosquitoes. It appears that dawn and dusk are the busiest time for many mosquitos, while others prefer the hottest times of the day. They seem to thrive during the hot, humid weather, especially after rain. Mosquitoes inject a proboscis, which looks like a tiny straw and sucks up small amounts of your blood, releasing anti-clotting agents. When your immune system reacts, it releases histamine, which creates a small bump that itches. What you think is a mosquito bite is really your body’s allergic reaction to the substance released by the bite.

Now that summer season is here, it’s time to stock up on sunscreen. With so many different options available, it’s daunting to make the right choices. The following guidelines can help you choose wisely.
