CTLawyer: What are the titles?September 22, 2018 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #1595430
As an Uber driver:
Jewish – Rabbi Yaakov Horowitz
Non-Jewish – Some football player. Didn’t know he was choshuv until I arrived at the stadium, all the guards jumped to attention and directed me down under to the tunnel where the players run out. I was told he was some dude. Ver Vais
On a trip to EY:
R’ Sheinman z”l .to receive a bracha before maariv. What was very nice was that the gabbai took our cell phones and took a billion pictures of myself and my twin boys giving sholom. A big chesed and the highlight of our 2 week tour.September 22, 2018 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #1595391
Nice try, maybe a newcomer would fall for your question. I would never post titles that could give away my identity.September 23, 2018 12:05 am at 12:05 am #1595452
@CTL we’ll find out who you are 🙂September 23, 2018 12:05 am at 12:05 am #1595457
CTLawyer: How’d my daughter behave over yuntif?
If you’ll recall, in your early days in the CR you were trying to effectively post who you are, by giving very detailed activities and locations about yourself, but the mods had to restrain you by redacting pertinent details in your posts even though you said you were okay with anyone knowing who you are.September 23, 2018 8:32 am at 8:32 am #1595529
Your daughter was an absolute delight over Yuntif. As always, you and your wife deserve credit for the way she has been raised.
This morning she is apple and pumpkin picking with our younger grandchildren for the final Sukkah decorations.
Things and attitudes change over time, as I come closer to retirement I value my privacy more and more. My desire for privacy involves not only myself, but Mrs. CTL, children, grandchildren, business, etc. As you well know, Mrs. CTL has been very ill during the past 2 1/2 years and I’ve had to take great measures to see that she is not disturbed by unwanted phone calls and visits from solicitors (for those in the Brit world, I don’t mean lawyers, but people with their hands out).September 26, 2018 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #1596340
CT you are an interesting person and I am impressed.July 30, 2019 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1767321

George W. Bush… it was so exciting to meet and shake hands with our POTUS 🙂July 31, 2019 5:01 am at 5:01 am #1767623
CTL, as a digression, you mentioned having had business dealings with “the Donald”. How did you find dealing with him as a person? A couple of my acquaintances who have done business with the Trump organization tell me that they found him to be rather a nice fellow.
P.S. Doesn’t your shoulder get sore from patting yourself on the back so often?July 31, 2019 7:59 am at 7:59 am #1767631
