Getting ones new website to show up under a general word search is very difficult. So I was thrilled today when I googled for Hanukkah.
Search for "Hanukkah" or "Menorah" on google today and find a picture of me and my daughter -- above "the fold" no less. The irony of it is that although I'm quoted in the accompanying article...

She says the nadir of menorah design was in the 1980s, when brassy models were popular.
"I have a really ugly brass menorah from my family," she said. "I take it out every year and light it, but it's not at all my aesthetic taste."
