About mahjonggandme

Mah Jongg is not just a game. It has become a part of my life that allows me to entertain my Mah Jongg-playing friends, cook great meals to serve to them and test my mental skills during our game play (which, hopefully, is often).

MISSED OUT…

Because of some other commitments, I missed out on meeting up in New Orleans with about twenty of my online Mah Jongg friends for a four-day fun fest. I have been keeping up with what went on and I know I missed a really special time (along with those beignets…or should I say, what was left of them!).

MAH JONGG AND LIFE…

Life Magazine, that is. From the April 24th, 1924 issue…”Pa and Ma Jongg!”10712780_303828996487023_7080436865341349415_n

WOODSTOCK!

What a beautiful drive from NYC to Woodstock! The leaves were changing colors and it was  a peak “leaf-peeper” day. I arrived in Woodstock in plenty of time to have a look around at what turned out to be a very charming town and also to have a chance to meet and spend a few moments with the director of the movie, Joe Muszynski, and one of the producers, Christina Mengert. What wonderful people!
