    A popular topic recently on YNW was “which member would you most like to meet in real life?” Well, would you attend a YNW live meeting?
    Meet the moderator?
    All proceeds to the go fund me charity of your choice.

    No.
    The coffee room started with a bunch of guys and then some ladies came and crashed the party and were allowed to stay, thus creating the only yeshiva coffee room where ladies can get a caffeine fix.
    A real life CR party? Don’t think so.

    It would only make sense if everyone wore a burka with his/her screen name taped on the forehead.

    Maybe we should throw such a party, but none of us go? And instead we all send someone to represent us?

    We could say that everyone should send someone else, and then actually show up.

    “Maybe we should throw such a party, but none of us go? And instead we all send someone to represent us?”

    And for added security, the time and place of the event would be known only by the moderators.

    This whole scheme is probably a ploy by our Mods to take over the world.

    RE: Golfer’s second to last post (#88): Maybe all the men should send their wives and/or kids and/or moms and/or sisters instead of their brothers. That way I would finally get to meet their wives, etc. I’m super-curious to find out what their wives are like. And then I can finally meet you for coffee.

    Why not just have separate men and women get together. and DovidBT- the burkas are a great idea

    Actually, it would be more fun if we had a contest to see who can guess which person goes with which CR name. Each person gets to ask each other person 3 questions before guessing.

    Whoever gets the most correct answer is the winner. Winner gets to become a moderator.

    RY – I was thinking of it as perception skills not stalking skills. But you may be right – I’m not sure. In any case, it’s probably not the best way to test someone’s perception. But I think it would still be a fun game.

    The Talmud says if you ask for too much you get nothing.
    So I am not requesting a real live coffee room.
    Instead I would settle for a voice chat coffee room.

    I’m afraid that won’t get you too far. Y’know how many people call ask me “can I please speak to your mother (or mommy!)” Gosh!! I’m happily married and moved out a couple of years ago! I can just HEAR them blush when I hand the phone to Frogette!

    LF – I can relate to that! People always think I’m way younger than I am. But at least no one is asking to speak to your husband -I’ve done that to people a few times – now, that was really embarrassing!

    Chabadgal – thanks for the vote of confidence! It’s nice to hear that at at least one person liked my idea ;(

    kitov: What is the context of this “if you ask for too much you get nothing” statement in the Talmud?

    thank you

    LB – He doesn’t want to ask for a CR get-together, since that is too much and he won’t get it. So instead, he is asking for a voice chat coffee room. Since that is less (in his opinion – personally, I am not sure about that), he thinks the “powers-that-be” are more likely to agree to it.

    Personally, I don’t think they will agree to either, which is probably very wise of them. I also think they would be less likely to agree to a voice chat. (but I could be wrong about that). Personally, I think I would be very uncomfortable with that (more than with the get-together.

    LU: Thanks, and sorry for not clarifying my question. I’ll try again here…

    Kitov said, “The Talmud says if you ask for too much you get nothing.”

    My question was in reference to the context of this “The Talmud says if you ask for too much you get nothing.” statement in the Talmud, and the origins from Chazal.

    I’ve simply never heard of anything saying that if you ask for too much, you get nothing. Does that mean that we’re not supposed to ask too much from Hashem? I thought that we’re supposed to ask for everything that we need, even if our needs are great.

    Or does this, limiting what we ask for, just apply when asking from people and not from Hashem?

    …Thank you 🙂

    LB – oh, sorry for misunderstanding!

    I’m not 100% sure of the origins in the Talmud. But I’m pretty positive that it’s not referring to asking Hashem for things.

    If you want to know the context in which I first heard the quote, it was when a friend of mine was telling me about an episode of LA Law that she had watched involving a guy who was refusing to give his wife a get and was making all sorts of demands. And the judge told him, “Tafasta merubah lo tafasta”.

    I think the ending was that he got struck by lightning or something like that.

    I would guess that perhaps the Gemara is referring either to people who push themselves too far too fast or to people who try to get too much out of other people (like in our case).

    But, I don’t know – you’ll have to wait for someone else to answer you.

    The Gemara uses it in a number of places to limit a shiur of something referred to in the Torah. Here’s an example:

    It seems to be an anology to trying to grab something too big. You won’t be able to hold it, and will end up with nothing.

    That’s weird – I’m pretty sure I had written a comment here that seems to have disappeared!?

    All I wrote was: Thanks DY for the source. And then something about how I hadn’t realized that it was an analogy to literally grabbing something.

    Thank you for letting me know… and it’s funny that you first heard of it from a secular tv show. Nice that some Torah transmitted through in such an unanticipated way 🙂

    Mrs. CTL and I would like to thank all of you who attended the gathering at the CTL compound on Labor Day…
    A good time was had by all
    We think that 4 or 5 shidduchim were made

    Note to Joseph>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
    Your 8 year old daughter has been found living in our youngest daughter’s former upstairs bedroom. She has been enjoying trying on all the clothing and playing dressup. She has helped herself to meals from the fully stocked upstairs pantry. If the cleaning lady hadn’t gone upstairs to clean yesterday we might not have known for weeks that you left her behind.
    She told Mrs. CTL that she is enjoying a week off from school and that it’s nice to have a room of her own, but she is starting to miss her brothers and sisters.
    Not to worry, I have to be in NYC Sunday morning and will bring her back. She’s welcome to come and stay anytime (if you hand handle the idea of her being with misnagdim).

    CTL, perhaps you forgot, but we’ve moved in through election day. We’re just wrapping up our Labor Day weekend vacation and much appreciate your babysitting.

    We’ll be back with the mishpacha on Erev Shabbos and greatly appreciate your hospitality and your wife’s delicious cooking. We really do feel at home.

    תפסת מרובה לא תפסת just means that when the Torah says a word in plural form, the most we can infer from it is that it referring to a minimum of two.
    The rationale behind it is that even if the truth is more than that, the minimum is still part of it, (see Rashi and Tosafos Rosh hashana 17a). For instance, let us say that we have a contract stating that rent is ‘hundreds’ of dollars, yet we don not know if it means two hundred three hundred or even more. Yet one thing we do know, and that is, the rent is a minimum of two hundred, for even if it was three hundred, part of three is two.
    This statement was not said in regards to prayer, although there are different Mamarai Chazal pertaining to it.

    “תפסת מרובה לא תפסת just means….”
    while you are right, the concept is found elsewhere see Gittin 56b
    http://hebrewbooks.org/shas.aspx?mesechta=19&daf=56b&format=pdf
    regarding Rav Yochanan not askign for the Beis Hamikdosh to be spared (I though the phrase tafsta meruba appears there but it doesnt, though the idea is similar).

    I am certian it is used in other sources the way it is used here (though cant think of any). And obviosuly in (our) everyday language it is used

    Forewarned eliminates the possibility of negligence, your daughter was under the DY family dominion and control.

    No wonder you fit in so well.
    Youngest CTL daughter was not allowed to drive until this morning

    I’m wondering who spiked the punch?

    CTL- the only one who could’ve spiked the punch was a lawyer from CT… 😉
    But really, my head is killing from all that alcohol
    Skipped work because of it

    Daddygirl………………..
    Yes, Youngest Ms. CTL was married about 6 weeks ago. She and SIL are occupying MIL’s home in the compound as we had to move MIL in with us for additional care.
    It is only 25′ between my home office door and her house.

    We do not expect them to live in that home permanently, but as SIL is both new to the family and the USA, it is a good place for adjustment. They expect to join the family firm in some capacity so I expect they’ll choose a home nearby or in commuting distance, figure out what they like, want and can afford and Mrs. CTL will put her designer/builder/realtor skills to work.

    As much as we love them in the compound, we believe a bit of distance would be healthy

    My daughter actually ate after the swim and trampoline jumping.

    Did the attorney’s letter arrive yet?

    Mrs. DY says Mrs. CTL is very sweet, and that we should just have hakaras hatov, and is upset that I’m going through with this.

    But hey, business is business.
