About a month ago, I told Time Warner Cable that at the end of this billing cycle they should disconnect my internet, It’s too expensive and whatever parnassah I got via internet doesn’t approach the expense of it, plus I used to call lonely people way more often, and accomplish extra things before I had a computer to “unwind” with at the end of the day. Even though I have THE WORLD’S BEST INTERNET FILTER – NATIV – I still think “going Amish” will save “a velt of gelt” (all these quotes are for you, Ender)….and I will bli neder go back to using my chill-time to cheer up others instead of just myself!
I have until the 24th iy”h and b”h a new business venture of mine is “off the ground” so I am quite busy, but I want to say this very important message to all of you:
I consider the CR a major source of chizuk and inspiration (and occasional insanity) and I thank all of you (in case I forget next week) for really boosting me when I needed it!!I’ll probably be over-posting the next few days, so don’t mind me:)September 22, 2013 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #976018yehudayonaParticipant
Speaking of Amish… I’m a frum male with a beard and yarmulke. A few years ago, I was teaching a special ed math class in a public high school. I was basing some lessons on my need to buy a new car, talking about things like gas mileage, auto loans, etc. This was at the time of the Amish school shooting (google it if you don’t know what I’m talking about), so the Amish were in the news. One day one of my students asked me if I were Amish. Another student piped up, “Of course not. He uses a calculator.”September 22, 2013 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #976019
What if we all sponsor your service?September 22, 2013 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #976020This name is already takenParticipant
I can’t believe a Jew would call him/herself Amish, would you call yourself Christian or Muslim? If not, why is Amish different?September 22, 2013 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #976021
O.S. You would hafta also call “my people” and that part might not work out so well:)
Y.Y. Amish are not as innocent as they look, right?September 23, 2013 1:33 am at 1:33 am #976022🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant

Aw, no! Goodbye, Eclipse! Even though I’ve barely gotten to know the CR crew yet, I like your posts and I’ll miss reading them. May thou enjoyeth being mamish Amish and have a wonderful year. 🙂September 23, 2013 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #976030
Lucky you, Eclipse. You can just disconnect service and be (again) off. My work (what’s that) requires me being always on-line, so in my off-time (don’t tell anyone – more on than off) I always snoop around here. (I don’t really post, do I)
Hatzlacha Rabba in all your endeavors. Check in on us from time to time.
15:50 minutes to countdown.September 23, 2013 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #976031

Eclipse, I’m hoping you’ll drop by to say “hi” every now and then, so I won’t say goodbye! Wishing you much Hatzlacha in everything you do. May this be a very *sweet* and gut yohr for you.September 24, 2013 1:04 am at 1:04 am #976033
Thank you,everyone. Oh Shreck, you post much less, give yourself credit.September 24, 2013 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #976034
Ha! I know you were baiting me. (How should I respond to that?) Well now that you can’t read / log on, I am (unfortunately) posting… (again)
