What's All This Then
The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Happy Hanukkah From Connie Francis
Connie Francis Sings Jewish Favorites
Here Connie Francis delights us with Jewish folk songs complete with English lyrics that have little or nothing to do with the original songs. The blue and white outfit and lettering! She even went so far as to include a representation of the Israeli flag on the cover - although they removed the Star of David.
What business does and Italian American teen sweetheart have singing Jewish favorites? Well, as she explained the documentary 'Hava Nagilah,' she's 10% Jewish on her manager's side.
A must for any hipster retro Jewish wedding. I bought this long before there were hipsters to play at mine.
Just so other groups don't feel left out, there are others.....
Connie Francis Sings Italian Favorites
Looking very Italian in front of a photo of Venice.
Connie Francis Sings Spanish and Latin American Favorites
Looking very Hispanic on the back patio of some Mexican restaurant.
My particular ethnic group remains unrepresented in the Connie Francis catalog. Alas, there is no Connie Francis sings WASPY Bland Midwestern Favorites.
