Never go to sleep angry – ALWAYS make up before.
Wishing you all the greatest brochos to build a Beis Naomon Byisroel happily GEZUNNTERHEIT
Sam 2 – Nematode worms grow inside the flesh and are kosher. The salmon and carp lice are parasites that grow in the water and attach themselves to the fish for food. They are “Sheretz Hamayim” and would need fins and scales to be kosher! Since they haven’t got them they are osur like all non kosher sea creatures. The salmon louse is easy to detect, it is about 5-10mm long. Half of it is round and the rest is a tail. The carp louse is much smaller about 4mm long, oval, and translucent. It is best to watch an expert checking before attemting oneself.
Looking for ideas for trips in Eretz Yisroel-something special, and maybe unusual
How about the miracle of the body? How Hashem made each part of the body for a purpose and how we are all different e.g the wonder of sight, the workings of the heart kidneys etc.
How about the miracle of nature – how Hashem made a little seed into an apple tree. Rabbi Miller used to say we should look at colour- Look at all the different greens in trees – the beautifule colours of fruit and veg.

I am B”H doing well. If you want to “talk” to someone who has been through the Parsha and may be able to offer some support and advice I will be happy for the mods to give you my email address. Wishing you and your mother all the best brochos in the world. THINK GOOD AND IT WILL BE GOOD!August 30, 2012 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm in reply to: sheitel-wearers, any advice in choosing wig for chemo patient? #894268
As someone who has had chemotherapy I would recommend a hair shietel as it is lighter. I do wear a shietel but found it quite difficult during those months when I had absolutely no hair. I found wering a silicone band (Like a thin hair band) amazing because then the wig doid not rest completely on my head. Wishing you a refuoh shlaimo and loads of Patience. It is a difficult time but try and keep positive.
All black cabs are licensed/registered. They are therefore safe to use. Black cabs are very expensive. If you are in a Heimishe neighbourhood it would be worth your while finding out about the local minicabs. – You can also order a car to pick you up at the airport.
I wrote “No Music” and took it from “Guidelines” – over 400 commonly asked questions about the Three Weeks (Targum/Feldheim).
Refuoh Shlaimoh. Hope the surgery goes well Bezras Hashem. Do you not have hobbies or something you would love to do but never have the time for? Now is that time…
How about going to a painting class or learn jewellery making or ?
No. No Meat wine or music till Monday morning.
I find this topic so upsetting. We should be looking how we can improve, to be zoiche to the Geulah. Rebetzin Braunstein z”L said as Torah is for men so is Tzinnius for ladies. Tzinnius is our lifeline. If it makes you feel good to wear eg tight clothes think how your clothes will be lacking in Oilam Haemes? If a man had one bad thought because of how a lady has dressed do you not realise the consequences?
The book by Rabbi Falk on Tzinnius have all the origins of his Psak. It is not his decisions.
Living in London unfortunately I have been able to get a glimpse at the huge Muslim community. I know they are full of immorality. However the “Orthodox” ladies would not dream of wearing tight or revealing clothes. The public swimming baths have agreed to long sleeve costumes only because the Muslims insisted.
Near the Royal London Hospital there is a huge muslim community. I was waiting for an appointment and walked around a bit. There is a large notice in their shops asking ladies to confirm to the dress code otherwise not to enter their shops. They cover their hair without a problem. I know in their houses is a different story.
Don’t get me wrong I CAN’T STAND THEM. However why do they maintain a standard and we can’t???
Our longing for Moshiach should become a lot stronger!
Mkomas Hakodoishim – inc. Meron Tzafas Teveria. Kotel Tunnels – Book a time. The question then is if you want to go to the Dead Sea, Rosh Hanikra Banias – all very special places.
Which part of Eretz Yisroel will you be looking for food?
Do you have a young family? Makes a difference! We have been going for the last few years – Just love it. YomTov is so very special.
I don’t think we can decide….
Sam”: I think you are right.
Come to London! – We have had about 6 dry days since Pesach. The highest temperature we have had this year 62F!
Surely we need to be optimistic and more hopeful? We can then try harder in our avodas Hashem – doing Mitzvas

Oh Dear, _ Do you have a hobby? art? music? – Work on what you enjoying doing. Find something to give you sipug besides your lessons. Hatzlocho
As an English person living in New York for some years I was frequently misunderstood! It was very frustrating, we now live in England!
I hate German. It may be my upbringing – my mother was born there and she won’t even say that word! She says she was born in Europe. She has a stateless passport. –
I think you can’t beat the warmth of Yiddish.
“Be Happy” you have a job! Maybe look into finding a better chair!
How can I get the Chazak Newsletter?
Thanks for sharing something so special – If only I had even a little bit of that Bitochon…
Health: I have just joined an amazing organisation here in London. If anyone needs to go to a hospital (patient or visitor) they can ring a central number for a car. The central number sends a text to all the drivers – anyone able to go calls the central no. and they make the necessary arrangements. It is all voluntary and could not be done without phones…..
Can’t believe that time of year is drawing closer – 3 weeks and 9 days and we are still in Golus…..
What are we doing and/or what should we be doing to bring the Geulah??
dustbin garbage can
clips bobby pin
I am English and lived in N.Y for 4 years. It was very frustrating to go shopping till I learnt the correct vocab….
Don’t let the Yetzer Horo get the better of you. You have to work hard on a marriage. Find some good things in your wife to be grateful for
Tne Best Bubby: Thank you so much I am going to Chai and they do have excellent treatment. Unfortunately my condition was neglected and I feel I need more than they can give me.
Health, Support: Thank you so much for your recommendation. I hope to make an appointment in the next few days at Beyond Basics in N.Y iy”H
Heed the warning! I always feel that if you hear such things there is a reason. Do more Research.
You have a big zechus. Appreciate it. Not all of us are zoiche to it.
Does any one know a doctor or therapist that they could recommend in New York?
How about a London scoop?
Real Israeli: if it does not happen spontaneously decide on certain times for communication when chosen topics will be discussed. Hatzlocho
This thread is so sick not worth a discussion and should be closed. It is sad that Yiden (on You Tube) can stoop so low.
Thank you so much for all your information. When I began this thread I felt so alone. It makes a huge difference to know there is help out there. Even more important to me is how complete strangers care enough to share this information.
The Difference Between Rich People and Poor People
One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son,
“How was the trip?”
“It was great, Dad.”
“Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked.
“Oh yeah,” said the son.
“So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.
The son answered: “I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.
We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.
We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
We have walls around our property to protect us,
They have friends to protect them.”
The boy’s father was speechless.
Then his son added,
“Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.”
Isn’t perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don’t have. Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends! Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective an appreciation.
“Life is too short and friends are too few.”
smelling salts, or maybe cloves!
Thanks blinky – I am B”H over the worst. For that I am grateful and to everyone who had me in their tefillas. I need help that Bezras Hashem I overcome all the complications it has left me with.
So sorry Blinky – Just can’t remember!
Thank you Support. Any more leads or advice greatly appreciated.
If you have to give the name Yenta PLEASE give her an extra name! At least you can avoid her having any bad feeling about her name and she can avoid being made fun of..
list of local car services
list of local shops e.g bakery
bus and train maps and timetables
I think BT Guy has great advice. I also think you should take up a hobby eg learn the guitar – go to dance lassons, learn jewellery making – It helps
I think we should start a revolution: Lets have happier articles and stories. I read both but feel we need a “happier” read. Why are the stories so serious and sad? Life is so difficult any way we need articles to bring a smile to our faces.
Coco cola & sweet potatoes!
