Hi, my name is Chai Block and ChetYod is my home for a collection of interesting facts, stories and anything else that’s not very well known.
The name is made up of the two Hebrew letters, Chet and Yod, which make up my name, Chai, which is the male verb for life in Hebrew, and is also used for the number 18.

I was inspired to start this blog because of the many facts I’ve learned through both watching the Qi television show (hosted by Stephen Fry), and through the website: http://www.qi.com.

Have fun browsing my site.
