Video Campaign for Kabbalah Bracelet Line Goes Live

MIZZE has also recently launched a funny (some say corky) online video campaign for their line of bracelets. The Israeli company has been making their own brand of Kabbalah inspired jewelry for 3 years.

The campaign was prompted by the just released line of new Kabbalah bracelets. MIZZE is a small jewelry studio in Israel that has its own line of unique Kabbalah jewelry. Their line includes necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. Their newest addition includes what they call “Red String Inside” bracelets – Kabbalah bracelets with an authentic Rachel’s tomb red string inter-woven into the bracelets. Rachel was a matriarch in biblical times and is revered in Christianity and Judaism.

The bracelet is intricately woven into a cotton thread with a seal of King Solomon amulet included as a charm. In ancient legend, the seal was said to give King Solomon mystic powers. Every bracelet includes a different seal that has special divine properties (Love, Positive Changes, Health and so on..) and holds some spiritual or emotional significance for the bearer.

Even though the jewelry is inspired by Kabbalah, it is also perfectly suitable for fashion wear. Those who are not drawn by its spiritual origins will at least find its design appealing enough for regular wear and use. For Jews, Christians and some new agers, the item has a deeper meaning and reflects an esoteric belief and practice that is such an integral part of the person’s life.

All jewelry available at MIZZE is crafted from quality organic materials and 925 Sterling Silver, so they make great gift options for those looking for a present with some sentimental value. The new Kabbalah bracelets at MIZZE come in up to 10 different colors for the band and a different Solomon Seal made from sterling silver for each one.

Rioting Peasants Shake Up the Royal Court

Benjamin IThe Israelite king, Benjamin I, was deeply troubled. Following his economic decrees from the Royal Court in Jerusalem, his loyal subjects were on the verge of rioting – even to the point of marching on the Royal Palace with buckets of tar and sacks of feathers.

“What have I done to deserve this outrage?”, he moaned as he peered out at the crowds massing in the square below his closed window, which had to remain closed to prevent the continuing barrage of eggs and rotten tomatoes from entering the room where he stood, together with his wife, Queen Sarah-li; who appeared to be more interested in a reality TV program going on (Run for the Millions) than the commotion going on below.

“The peasants keep clamoring for bread. Don’t they realize that these new decrees are for their own good? Don’t they understand that they can find other work, good work, as chimney swifts, if our royal treasury can no longer give them largess?” he continued.

“Don’t worry my dear, if they don’t have bread or pitas to eat, let them eat cake”, his queen said, apparently thinking of something else.

“Cake! Did you say cake?” he fumed. “Marie Antoinette, Louie’s wife, said the same thing, and look what happened to both of them! Maybe we should throw our subjects a bone – like allowing them, especially the older ones, to be given an extra penny on their pensions per month. That will enable them to go purchase…..”

“Nonsense!”, the Queen screamed. “Are you becoming weak in your old age? We have to be strong with these people or the next thing you know they’ll be raiding the royal henhouse. Then they’ll even throw those eggs at us!”

“I’ll deal with them, especially their leaders, personally. I have my list of people to get even with, now that you are king again” she cooed, kissing his cheek.

“That won’t work like it used to” he moaned. “The peasants are too strong now. They’ll burn down our palace like the French peasants burned down the Bastille. Maybe we should cut a deal with them, like give their wives free maternity care.”

“Free maternity care?” she hissed. “That’s how we got into this mess in the first place. Also by hiring those alchemists to turn lead into gold. If you would have listened to me, we would have them convinced to do their patriotic duty and pay even higher taxes for the good of the Motherland.”

“I’ve got it! ” the king exclaimed suddenly. “We’ll tax more those knights who received a horse from their “employer” in order for them to get to and from the jousting tourneys. I was going to hike the tax on oats by 10%, but just levying a “horse tax” sounds much easier.

“Oh my king, thou art truly wise,” Queen Sarah-li said. “Now, let’s go eat lunch – the royal butler advised me that the lamb chops, and the caviar should be especially good today.”

What happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup?

This was sent in by a reader and we couldn’t resist…

What happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup?

The Italian – throws the cup and walks away in a fit of rage.

The Frenchman – takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.

The Chinese – eats the fly and throws away the coffee.

The Russian – drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.

The Israeli – sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to the Chinese, Buys himself a new cup of coffee and uses the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.

The Palestinian – blames the Israeli for the fly falling in his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, and the Russian are all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should give away his cup of coffee to the Palestinian.
