A dear friend of this blog, Joy Hamilton, sent me the following email and photo:

I‘ve been searching for a pusher to compliment my Mah Jongg tiles and just didn’t want another piece of plastic.  My husband made a ‘pusher’ for me (for my Birthday) from a piece of Bamboo!  It think it’s fabulous and just had to share it with you.
I look forward to starting my day, everyday, by reading your daily blog.  Once again, thank-you for all the hard work you do providing your readers with such great information.
All for now,
How fabulous is this pusher? I just love it, especially the fact that it is made from bamboo. What a perfect complement to Joy’s lovely Mah Jongg set. I warned Joy that I probably will be inundated for requests as to how to purchase one of these – I know I would love a set! And what a fabulous holiday gift these would be!!
Joy…what do you think?! This could be an entire new career for you and your husband!


First and foremost, we extend our most heartfelt condolences to dear Gladys Grad, the Grand Master of American Style Mah Jongg, for the untimely loss of her beloved husband, Phil. We are all thinking of you, Gladys.

On a happier note, the Berkeley-based Mah Jongg maven and exceptional teacher, Toby Salk, has lots of news for us. As we wrote earlier, Toby’s darling mother, Reva, won the first game of Mah Jongg at the Project Mah Jongg exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco . Here is the beautiful mother and daughter duo:


Congratulations to Toby and her mom!!! Read on for more exciting Toby Salk news… Continue reading
