I don’t know, but what I do know is that schools should be secured. Where are the guards, where are the locked doors? How can a child walk in with guns? Where are the metal detectors? It is terrible that the world is in such a crazy state, but why are kids allowed to walk the halls with guns? All doors should be locked and only one should stay open to the public with two guards at the door. When will that be understood?December 15, 2013 1:51 am at 1:51 am in reply to: Everyone Must Answer: What Is YOUR Favorite Dish (food) #1184479
Steak. Definitely steak.December 15, 2013 1:42 am at 1:42 am in reply to: School shooting. What is going on? #993602
DY, I know that everything is min hashamayim, but this is nuts. You hear crazy people, who, by the way, nobody suspected as being nutcases, going into schools and doing these horrible things.
Unfortunately, we have seen this in the past number of years and even before that. Where is the security? What have they learned about securing schools? There was a report on NBC about a reporter who was able to walk into schools without any difficulties. What are the guards for? This is so scaryFebruary 21, 2012 3:53 am at 3:53 am in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857131
Do you know the lady ? Her children? Her story? I am sure you will answer “NO” to all of these questions. Lay off. Let her and her Ex deal with the situation. Not of our business.
I wish them much Hatzlacha in this nisayon.December 15, 2011 12:43 am at 12:43 am in reply to: The CR Band – Who Plays What? #837829

Popa: Funny:) I never understood people who go to Dunkin and order tea. Why would you pay for tea when you can make it at home.
Coffee is a totally different thing. Dunkin donuts coffee is the best. Much, much better than starbucks. I find that starbucks coffee is very bitter.October 18, 2011 5:22 am at 5:22 am in reply to: Yearbook Ad #818149
Adds for yearbook or any journal are crazy high, but that’s how they raise the money. The truth is that publishing a yearbook is very expensive. They way we do it is, all the aunts, uncles and cousins get together and put one page add. Doing it this way is reasonable and you can list EVERYBODY:) Mazal Tov:)October 12, 2011 12:43 am at 12:43 am in reply to: why are they freeing gilad?? #817395

Hodu L’HaShem Ki Tov. Ki L’olam Chasdo:) Baruch HaShem. HaShem always takes care of us. No matter what. Let the goyei ha’amim see how much we value a jewish neshama. I can’t believe it is true. WOW. IY”H Gilad will have Refuas Hanefesh V’guf very soon. Amazing. Two weeks after rosh hashana.October 10, 2011 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm in reply to: Dear Teacher, can you give us a little break?! #816701

That is the whole point. You don’t have to study with her. Have her sit in the kitchen and let her do her homework, while you are doing your work. It’s not your job. She should know the material.
write a note to the teacher, saying that she did her homework by herself. Ask the the teacher if she knew the material. The school day is so long. It is still hot outside. No one is expecting them to do more than a chazara.October 10, 2011 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm in reply to: When life hands you lemons… #818161
When life gives you lemon, make lemon meringue pie, lemon ices, lemonade and lemon chicken. Yumm.October 10, 2011 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm in reply to: Dear Teacher, can you give us a little break?! #816694
Hi Deizy, You have to be clear in how much Homework was given.
Homework means a repetition of classwork as a means of staying on top of things. If the teacher asked the children something that was very difficult and needed a parents’ assistance, it is one thing. Then you have a valid complaint. But if the teacher asked them to just review ( on their own ) the work, I don’t see anything wrong with it. Keep in mind though, that if your child is having a hard time with it, the teacher ought to know about it, so she can review the material with your child.October 10, 2011 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm in reply to: Hatzalah Member Discounts #816674
Miritchka: I really don’t think that by receiving a discount he is forgoing his mitzvah. People want to show appreciation for those tzadikim. When a Rebbi gets a chanukkah gift from a parent, is he forgoing his mitzvah of teaching Torah? Of course not. A parent wants to show appreciation. Let him receive the discount. He deserves it. I really don’t see any problem with it.October 10, 2011 4:02 am at 4:02 am in reply to: Dear Niece Revisited #816144
Have you tried to discuss the problem with her parents? What do they say? I am sorry about your situation. Nobody wants to be in a situation that is so unpleasant. I assume that if you are going, it must be that going somewhere else is not in the picture.
Just stay out of her way. Don’t be overly friendly. Good morning. Good night. Good yom tov and that’s it. Don’t expect an answer.October 10, 2011 3:20 am at 3:20 am in reply to: Sukkos menu #816100
Taking a break, I find milchig to be more patchkarai then fleishig.
Popa: I wonder what you’d consider “more filling”.October 10, 2011 1:58 am at 1:58 am in reply to: Hatzalah Member Discounts #816669
I really don’t see any problem with it. They are volunteers without specific hours, or time. When you have a volunteer, he/she has a set time. Not these guys. They are always on call. Shabbos, Yom Tov, Sedarim, Shul, Seudos, you name it. Their families are also amazing, since they are in this together. We should show them appreciation as much as we can because without them, good luck.
All beautiful names:)
gb: Whom were you referring to?October 9, 2011 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm in reply to: Hatzalah Member Discounts #816667
TFG: They are doing it Lishma, but if a person wants to show his appreciation, What is wrong with that?
Some S’fardi names are: Tzion, Rachamim, Mazal, and different English or French names, depending which country they came from.
Tomer, Ofer and Ro-ee are modern Israeli names. Not Ashdenazi or S’fardi.October 9, 2011 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm in reply to: Hatzalah Member Discounts #816665
Each Hatzalah member is a Mal’ach from HaShem. HaShem should shower them with all that is good.October 9, 2011 2:54 am at 2:54 am in reply to: Build Your Sukkah Motzei Yom Kippur #1186015

Thank you for posting even though the thread was closed:)
I have read “in every generation” a few times already. It is such an awesome book. It gives me chizuk every time that i read it.
It makes you appreciate all that you have and makes you marvel at a person’s Emunah and Bitachon through the toughest of timesOctober 7, 2011 12:32 am at 12:32 am in reply to: Tanach Trivia #1217390

This is such blanket statement. You can’t group people together like that. There are rich people among s’fardim and rich among ashkenazim too. Most people that I know, have a two income family and not every woman wants to stay home all day long.October 6, 2011 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm in reply to: Tanach Trivia #1217380

Ask your pediatrician about melatonin. It really works, but you need to ask. Before you give it though, try the same routine for about a week or two. Supper, homework, bath and bedtime story. Sometimes, a routine is all that is needed. I have a couple of friends who give their children melatonin ,with physician’s advise and it works. Good luck. A tired, cranky child is not a happy child.

When I was expecting my first, many years ago:), I just had a feeling that it will be a girl. I needed something to bring the baby home from the hospital with, so I purchased this pink stretchie with white ruffles in the back. The cutest thing ever. I still have it. And yes, it was a girl. I don’t know if I would do it again though. Ask a shaila.September 26, 2011 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm in reply to: I am very sick. Please daven for me. #920045

There are a lot of things to see in Rome. For one thing, there is a Jewish community there and definitely old Shul buildings and old Jewish neighborhoods. There are many things to see in Rome besides Churches.August 31, 2011 12:19 am at 12:19 am in reply to: OTD sibling #805042
Just be there for him/her. If your sibling is receptive to hear what you have to say, great. If not, don’t push!! Stay in touch, always show that you care and still love your sibling. Be there for him/her. Don’t forget that this is his/her nisayon and could use all the love, letting your sibling know that you will always be there.August 31, 2011 12:13 am at 12:13 am in reply to: The geography game! #1203557

Sorry about the shaytel. I am sure it is extremely frustrating to spend so much money and then this, but please refrain from using “Chemo” to explain your point. No one should ever have to go through it.August 5, 2011 5:58 am at 5:58 am in reply to: music in the 9 days #794851
I used to always listen to Acapella. About three years ago I heard or read somewhere that it is not so recommended. An example that was given was: You would not sing in a house of Aveilus. Right? I don’t know the precise halacha for it, but when I hear it put that way, It makes a lot of sense to me.July 22, 2011 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm in reply to: shloshim meal??? #788742
You have a Seudah. The family gathers together and a Siyum Mishnayos is made L’iluy Neshama.
Hi coffee addict. I too am a coffee addict:)
It all depends on the crowd they are trying to raise money from. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think ” our place” is an organization that deals with kids who are going through hard times.
What ever it takes, I wish them much hatzlacha. I hear they are doing amazing things.June 27, 2011 12:50 am at 12:50 am in reply to: Family vacation #780778
For a Sunday trip, how about an IMAX film. There are some wonderful films about animals, the universe, etc.
For a few days, Lake George, New Hampshire, Amish country. I personally love to tour D.C. True, the summer is hot and humid in the Baltimore area, but there are so many wonderful museums to enjoy. Good Luck and have a safe trip:)June 26, 2011 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm in reply to: Everyone Should see a Therapist #781100
I personally feel that most people can benefit from a number of therapy sessions. Life is so hectic and busy. We try to do so much and be there for so many people who count on us. Maybe 15 20 years ago it was considered taboo but not anymore. Every person must dedicate time for for him/her self so they can be functioning in a healthy mental state. Go for it.
