Thanks for your welcome back!
I will definitely work on it.
an open book-
yeah I meant pay pal sorry typo error I was exhausted last night
ames-Well the first time that I got an email saying that I was the grand winner of the Irish National lottery.i did some research and there is a real Irish National lottery.
However I was a bit skeptical about this.In the email “The Irish Lottery-Fiduciary agent”(anything with Fiduciary I have discovered are crooks)said to cantact a certain person in a bank in england to transefer funds to my accountt.Well I wanted to get to the bottom of this.The next day I called the Bank in England I told them what I had recieved in my email.They said that they know nothing of this lottery and that someone is using their bank name to scam people.They transfered me over to the security of this bank and I was told to foward the email to them.In which I did.The woman at the bank told me and I spoke to a police officer once and they both told me that if you win money you will never be notified by email.
YOu will never guess who had the chutzpah to email me again-The “Irish national lottery”-So on the bottom of the page the “Fiduciary agent” Left her cell number in case I wanted to contact her/I had a problem.
Guess what I did I fowarded her cell number with the email to Security(liverpool)of a bank in London-LOL!
I just would like everyone in the YWN coffee room to be aware of email lottery scammers.If you get any emails telling you that you have won any sort of money don’t open it.Whether it says the Irish nationlal lottery, or one of the lucky ones to win from a microsoft online drawing.These things are baloney and false.I get alot of these junk emails-I have no idea how they got my email address.
I once spoke someone from security and they informed me that if you ever win anything from a lottery or big money then they will call you by phone-even then you have to be carefull-they will NEVER EMAIL YOU TO TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE WON.
These people that send out the asian lottery and oh yes they make it sound very authentic- call mr sing yang at the_____bank in Tokyo and he will be able to transfer funds into your account.
These people are after one thing your identity so they can Chas Vashalom get into your account.
While we are on the top of scamers be very carefull when buying things online with a credit card.On my father’s credit card statement he got a bill from a bunch of stores in Venezula no one in my family has ever shopped in any stores in Venezuala!We realized that someone must have gotten hold of my father’s credit card online and went on a nice shopping spree.It is safer to pay by pen pal when you buy things online!
lgbg welcome back and a big mazel tov to you!

Basyisroel2 signing in>I don’t know why but tonight the posts are taking alot longer to be put up.I guess the mods are workin really hard!Maybe they need more coffee to keep them awake!
an open book-
ames and Jax-Thanks for your best wishes! Baruch Hashem the person is doing better!
Jax-How?and why did you change your name?I am so use to asdf-You were one of the machers on the YWN coffee chairpeople’s commitee!
ames-special thank you to you-thanks for being my friend-These past few months have been pretty stressfull dealing with someone who was sick but I am glad to be back!April 28, 2009 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm in reply to: Frum Girls Dancing on the Dance Dance Revolution at Arcades #689379
I have heard a talmid chochom once say that it is only acceptable for a girl to go side saddle in public!April 28, 2009 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm in reply to: Frum Girls Dancing on the Dance Dance Revolution at Arcades #689378
I am talking about following the halochos of tznius-covering elbows knees ect.
I have heard from people that to look tznius you have to look like a neb because if you look like a neb then people won’t pay any attention to you! That’s crazy!That is not what being tznius is all about!
As a yid you are suppose to dress in a bekovidik manner, and to davka dress in a really nebby manner is a chilul Hashem!
Thanks mepal!April 28, 2009 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm in reply to: Frum Girls Dancing on the Dance Dance Revolution at Arcades #689372
I have to say that as long as i am dressed tzniusly according to halacha then that is fine.
I am allowed to look pretty and nice as long as it follows the guidlines of halacha.
If a man looks at me then that is his problem his michshul.I don’t have to go out of my way and look extra ugly so that nobody should dare look at me.
As a girl I have to watch my mode of dress and as men you have to watch your eyes.I don’t have to wear a burqa so that a man should never be nichshul because i look tznius and nice..
I’m back-Someone I know wasn’t well but now they are now o.k. baruch hashem and I finally figured out a new passsword for myself so I am back-(I had trouble logging in with a diffrent password that the YWN gave me)!
Hi guys I’m Back!I had problems logging in and then somebody I know wasn’t well but they are Baruch Hashem O.k. now!Sorry for the scare!

5. There are at least three shuls/shteibel’s on every block, but the one you daven at, is five blocks away from your house.
4. You can find a maariv minyan at 12:27 a.m., and then satisfy your midnight craving at Bissele’s the Shnitzel king or Deli 52.
3. Every bakery/ and restaurant requires at least three hashgacha’s.

moish01 and anonymisss
Those where great!
Moish”my house looks like any other. why would i wanna go to a stranger’s if i could just go downstairs? “
The point is to get out a bit more to go to other people that might be more of your speed.Perhaps it would be agood idea to go someone’s house who went through the same things that you are going through or felt the same way you feel!
Stayed locked in your room is not the way to go about living your life!
If you feel fustrated or upset do something about it(that is not harmful to yourself or others)!
Maybe you are burnt out and need a vacation!
I am telling you-I for one am going away I don’t care anywhere!I need to get away we all do!
syriansephardi- a black bery is so expensive I have to pay an internet fee every month!
anonymisss-Happy Birthday and many more till 120 IY’H!
To all my choshuva Cr members I am going to call it a night!I have got a lot of simchos to attend to tommorow so I will try and post!If not I will post with you all on Monday.Gut Voch and a Mazeldika Voch to all!Remember it’s Rosh Chodesh Adar this week.This month is very Mazeldik- so Every body s e !
AL2-“I end up ordering water which costs more than coffee”
What? Do you like order an extra large bottle of water or something?
ames- lol! Not really I sometimes get coffee there with my friends. I once went there on a date.I was standing right next to my dates when they payed at starbucks and by hotels, so I know the prices!
moish01-Maybe you are not seeing the real beauty of shabbos in your home.Maybe it would be a good idea to go to other people’s houses for Shabbos!
ames & coke not pepsi-Thanks!
coke not pepsi-That is a very good idea for me to try and focus one tefillah on my friend and another tefillah on myself!
Can someone please answer me if I am doing the wrong thing-look at my post above-
myshadow do you have a second user name as AL2?
Don’t forget coffe or let’s make that cappocinos!
-At Rav yaakov Kaminetzky’s levaya there was a Nun.The family members asked her in a polite way how come she came to Rav Yaakov Zatzal’s levaya.She answered that everybody ignored her because she was a nun.However, ever morning Rav Yaakov would pass the nunnery on his way to somewhere and would say good morning to her.She said I just had to come to the funeral of such a great man!
-Once at Rav Gifter Zatal’s house they had a choshuva guest over Chanukah.The guest told Rav Gifter that they have to light because it was way passed shkiya.Rav Gifter answered that they will wait for Rebbitzen Gifter to come home to light because Shalom Bayis is more important!
My brother was in line to a brocha from Rav Kanievsky.There was a man there who was pouring out his heart to Rav Kanievsky.My brother said that he saw tears pour down Rav Kanievsky’s face in front of everyone!
myshadow-I have verizon!I ahve signed up for a new plan and I don’t know which phone to get!
Asdf- Hatzlacha and may we all hear good news from you Bekarov!
myshadow- why do you not like starbucks? I think it’s great-You can have a small black coffee/ice coffe there with soy milk(check the hechser at each starbucks) which is $2.something which is cheaper that a $6.00 flat soda at a boring Hotel!
ames my friend-Amen! Thank you for your beautiful bracha!
I have a question for everyone in the coffee room with the concept of davening for one’s friend.I daven for my friend first and then I daven for myself is that the wrong thing to do?Someone told me that you are only suppose to daven for the other person, however I feel that I still need to daven for myself.
I am worried that I may be a bit selfish that I might have more kavana when I am davening for myself then when for my friend.
I have to be honest that one of the reasons that I am davening for myis friend because I want to get shidduch also .However even if I was married I would still daven for my friend. However if I was married I would daven for her just for the sake of her without any ulterior feelings of if i daven for her then Hashem will listen to my Tefilos .
Am I doing the wrong thing, I am worried that my reasoning for davening for my friends is not 100% purley for the sake of them.
Although I daven for people who don’t have children, parnasa without expecting to get anything from it except to help another yid.
I’m here-Reminder it is Rosh Chodosh Adar this week!
areivimzehlazeh-The thing with kriyas yamsuf is a joke
Where is pushatayid and mango?
Goodnight to all the chosuva members of the yeshiva world CR! I am going to catch some zzz’s before I fall asleep on my computer!
To ames-don’t worry I”yh I will be back posting tom.!
Ames-syriansephardi is correct- dmc’s are very serious and intense conversations.
By the way i read somewhere that chazal say that eating brings closeness between peole so maybe thats why people go out to eat on dates.That is also why we have yayin nesech-we don’t want to get to close to the goyim…
starbucks,Terrace on the hudson, bowling
I have a serious question-why on earth do boys take girls to hotels on the first date it is so uncomfortable.
There is just something with after a long day of work and the lights are really low that makes me kind of sleepy.If someone MUUSSTT go to a hotel lounge and meet the world there at least take a walk or play a board game.To me Hotel dates are when things are getting serious and its DMC time.
ames- Amen and the same to all who are waiting to cross kriyas yam suf!
And ames I will always be your friend you don’t have to worry about that-
I will try not to be MIA and i will IYH post whenever I can!
The Fairness Doctorine =Communinism.
Saddam hussein censored what the people of Iraq put in their newspapers.All countries with dictators have some sort of “Fairness doctorine”.They don’t call it “the Fairness doctorine” they just say that if you write anything we don’t like or anything against our leader then you will be in for it!They have chopped people’s head off because of what they have written or produced in their media!

-Top Ten Pirchei Avos at Work
10. the work world stands on three “T” things: 1) timesheets 2) to-do lists 3) time-off
9. Say little and email a lot.
8. Do not work on the hopes of receiving a bonus. Let the fear of layoffs be upon you
7. Let your office be a meeting room for the higher-ups. Sit in the back and drink their every word, then send out a conference report immediately after.
6. Make for yourself a boss, take your coworker to lunch, and judge everyone towards merit
5. Be like Human Resources, loving peace and pursuing peace
4. How your boss takes credit: What is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine.
3. Do not judge your fellow until you are in his place….unless it’s his annual review.
2. If not now, when? Sorry, it’s 5-o’clock will worry about it tomorrow.
1. Who is a Wealthy Man? Check Forbes
Moish- you got that right!( The 3 R’s-Reading,writing, and arithmatic)See how smart you are!
while we are on the topic of technology -Does anybody know of any good cell phones and can any one give feedback as to which ones are good and to which ones are not ect..Thanks!
Joseph – you said “BasYisroel, It was said over that the Rebbe insisted on 2, while Rav Bick insisted on 8. (Not “at least 8-10″.)”
Well my Rav told me it’s 8-10.8 or 10 is a big diffrence from 2 or 3 dates?
The point is that a lot of Litvish Rabbonim and yes Gedolim have been advocating for longer dating time-not 2 or 3 dates!
ames-I have been posting a lot last night but my posts were taking forever to get through.And what do you mean i cant do that- I can’t do what?All of those vorts were friends of mine.Prince Charming has not arrived on my front doorstep yet!

“Remember happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely on what you think”
“Success is getting and achieving what you want. Happiness is wanting and being content with what you get”
“The person who seeks all their applause from outside has their happiness in another’s keeping “
Now for some humourous quotes..
“A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain.”
“The nice thing about egotists is that they don’t talk about other people”
“All I ask is a chance to prove that money can’t make me happy”
“a polotician is like an air conditioner because it makes a lot of noise but doesn’t work very well”
“The nice part of living in a small town is that when I don’t know what I’m doing, someone else does”
“You know there is a problem with the education system when you realize that out of the 3 R’s only one begins with an R”
thanks Mr. asdfghjkl Chairman sir for the warm welcome back!
Joseph said “BasYisroel,
What I said is correct, despite the anecdotal stories you present.
Btw, please advise which Gedolim insist on at least 8-10 dates. (If you’d like, I can advise which insist otherwise.) “-
the Satmar Rav ZT”L complained to Rav Bick ZT”L who advocated a 10 date policy, Rav Bick said Satmar Rav, you deal with Shtarei Kesubah, I have to deal with Shtarei Gittin too
