When I need to go to a happy place in my head, I invariably wind up at my Bubbe's Sunday night table, which always featured lokshen (noodle) kugel. The noodles were just a good excuse to add raisins and almost every dairy product in her fridge. It was the ambrosia of my youth. She served this every Sunday night, except during Passover, when noodles cannot be used. Food plays a huge role in the observance of most Jewish holidays. Apples and honey are eaten on Rosh Hashana, potato latkes and jelly doughnuts on Hanukkah, hamantaschen on Purim.

COLE KUGEL, 105 Oldest licensed pilot in U.S. Cole Kugel, the oldest licensed pilot in the U.S., died Monday in Denver of natural causes, according to Ahlberg Funeral Chapel. The Federal Aviation Administration said Mr. Kugel was the oldest licensed American pilot. Though his license never expired, his health certificate, which is required to fly a plane, lapsed in 2001, FAA spokesman Paul Turk said. But Mr. Kugel did take the controls of a small plane less than two months ago, said Lynn Ferguson, a pilot friend and the grandson of one of Mr. Kugel's early flying buddies.

After all, money has to go somewhere when it's pulled out of certificates of deposit and money-market funds.The year 1992 is, indeed, shaping up as another fine one for the stock market, though few expect it to equal 1991 and the breakneck upward pace of recent months."The investor with money in CDs and money-market accounts can expect a total return of just 4 percent in 1992 vs. the 20 percent return we expect for the stock market," said James Coxon, director of U.S. equity investments for Kemper Financial Services.
