when the mods don’t answer my question 🙁
Mods: where is the op’s post? also i noticed some other posts are missing as well. ex: the post from -working on it.
one more comment for mosherose: “that’s how terrible things happen”? Oh – Please – give me a break. what terrible things happen from fathers going to a graduation? we’re not talking about a bunch of sick men stalking cute girls!
Commonsense: Great point!!!
mosherose – EXCUSE ME??!! What old days are you talking about? I’m not going to say how many years ago I graduated. But let me say this. I went to a VERY FRUM SCHOOL (there were a lot of chassidish girls there too) and guess what? FATHERS WERE INVITED TO OUR GRADUATION!!! Yes – men with long beards and payos were there!
Gumball – right on!!!
Papa “does this mean that none of the Roshei Yeshivah or rabbonim are present at these graduations?
Yes, it does mean that.”
NO – It happens not to mean that. The Roshei Yeshiva and rabbonim who teach at the school WILL be there. In fact one or two of them will speak.
Working on it – thanks for your post! You said it like it is!
Shrek and Whatelseisleft – the school did not have this policy when our kids started there. My husband was allowed to attend the other graduations we had. Yes we are very happy with the education etc. But we are not happy about this “frum” decision. read the op’s comment about schools in boro park and williamsburg. are we frumer than they?
CV – not all the girls are planning to marry full time learners. believe me, we cannot afford to support a kollel couple with $50,0000 a year. a lot of other parents are in the same position.
I realize that snopes is run by humans and mistakes are made. but the way ppl talk about it and quote it,you would think it is the “be all end all of truth”
yoyo – if this is really true and you’re really scared, then have someone come along with you the next few times- ex: a friend or sibling. have them keep a distance so the guys in the store and this girl who is apparently following you don’t know they are with you. In other words, it should still appear as though you are alone. Your companion should keep an eye on what’s going on and see if he/she thinks you are right about what’s going on. If so, then take the next step and report what’s going on. It might also be helpful for your companion to discreetly take pics or video of the whole thing.
Hatzlacha to you.
TikunHatzot – just cuz we may have killed him doesn’t mean we have the death certificate. We just do the job and leave 🙂
Hey Yummy – my second toe is also larger than my first. Maybe we’re related. Popa – maybe we’re also related – are you my papa?
We royal ppl are just the greatest!
Um – Yummy – as far as you being the one who killed Osama, prove it! Cuz i’m claiming the same thing.
I agree – the “I” bit was quite obvious and annoying. He’s not the only one who gets credit here. But I guess he’s trying really hard to get re-elected next year.
The part about bin laden not being a moslem leader, I see what he was trying to say, however as Papa said, he did what he did in the name of moslem and all of his followers are moslem.
simchashachayim – wow – the same day as hitler yemach shemo? Hashem works in mysterious ways!
Just heard his speech. Sounded good but did he mean what he said? He sounded devoid of emotion. Maybe I’m just being too critical. What are the thoughts of our cr members?
Shticky Guy – good post!
I have such a deep dark secret that even I don’t know it 🙂
How sad! Why don’t you print out this whole thread – with all the responses and send it to her?
Do you know if she goes on the CR at all? Although they say ppl never recognize themselves when something is written about them. But you never know.
Anyway, hatzlacha rabba to you in resolving this!
I also like Zeeskite – she sounds sweet (no pun intended). Papa is quite interesting. Observateen is another good one. Also Deiyezooger. There are others too.
I just don’t like when ppl are always ready to jump and criticize others or are so negative. Otherwise I think the CR is great!
i think yummy cupcake is adorable. does anyone agree? i also think i’m really cute and nobody mentioned me! 🙁
I have a great idea for today. Let’s all complain on the CR about not knowing what to do today. 🙂
Zeeskite – Actually your answer did help me. I kept grabbing at any bit I could. When my mind wandered, I tried very hard to get back on track. Thank you!
Hope your Yom Tov was nice, and your Chol Hamoed and the rest of Yom Tov should also be nice.
we’re having the same issue here in the midwest. 3 teen kids – nobody can agree on what to do. also everything is sooooooo expensive. any ideas?
Gumball – everything on the CR is important – no? 🙂
Thanks zeeskite. I understand what ur getting at but I still need more inspiration.
I thought others would also respond and have some good advise! Come on everyone. I know it’s Erev Pesach and we’re all busy, but precisely because it’s Erev Pesach, I would love some answers so I can try to daven with the right kavanah.
Wishing everyone a Chag Kosher V’Sameach!
Tomim Tihye – I like your expression “happily deprived”. I think I’ll use it.
Have a Chag Kosher V’sameach to you and all the cr ppl.
mendelsons in bp is also good.
Go happiest and erm_saywhat! hurray for the lower east side. i was born there and grew up there! i now live elsewhere but the LES will always be a part of who i am.
anyway – there’s a pizza place in teaneck nj (at least i think it’s still there). It’s called Pizza Crave. YUMMMMM! not only the best pizza, but all their food is great. the place is nice and clean. every time we took a trip to ny – we made sure to stop at pizza crave (we have friends in teaneck – that’s how we found out about the place). We haven’t been back to ny in a while. I miss it.
eclipse – are you going to italy? i know a family here who goes there almost every Pesach.
i hope ur husband knows about it! lol 🙂
oh- but the cr is soooo necessary! what will i do w/o it? :-0
always here – that’s what i was wondering. or is it assur to use the computer over pesach (chol hamoed – of course)?
I’m from New York and my husband is from the midwest. When we got engaged, my mother in law was in for a big surprise. The first Shabbos after our engagement, a woman from her shul called her aside and asked what she is giving me. My mil asked what she was referring to. The lady then proceeded to give her a LIST of things she ABSOLUTELY MUST BUY FOR THE KALLAH! Needless to say that made her a bit nervous as she had never heard such a thing before. Yes, she planned on getting me some gifts but didn’t know there were specific requirements and price range! Well, when I found out about this, I told my husband (future at the time) to tell his mother not to worry. I was not looking for all that glitz. We are still happily married and have a wonderful family B”H. And my mil and I still joke about it.
my father’s yarzeit is on Asara B’teves – already a fast day. My mother’s is not on a fast day. The first few years I did try to fast on those days, but then it got hard, so I don’t. I like the idea of making a kiddush/siyum and taking on mitzvos as an aliyah for the neshama.
On the topic of yarzeits, do people refrain from going to a simcha if it falls out on a parent’s yarzeit?
K – enough with the fed-ex and ups guys!
I am grateful for my husband and amazing kids! Also always thankful to Hashem for our good health, and that we have a roof over our heads and food to eat etc. You should always focus on the positive.
Oh yeah – I’m sooooo thankful for our cheerful mailman 🙂
Bar Shattya- that was a mean response! the op obviously wanted some serious answers. if you want fun, go look for another thread. you don’t have to comment here if you don’t have anything nice to say.
yummycupcake – you sound like you have a good head on your shoulders. a lot of kallahs want only the most expensive and the best of everything no matter what the cost. hatzlacha to you. may you and your friends find your basherts soon.
you really think facebook started the wars in the arab nations? i think not.
I almost never drink water. For some reason, I just don’t like it. I buy vitamin water which is ok. There are different flavors. Just make sure the one you pick has a hechsher – not all do.
Recently at a wedding, they served lemon water. I actually drank it. So I decided I’m going to buy lemons, slice them up and put them in the freezer, packed separately so they don’t stick together (my friend gave me the idea of slicing and freezing) and just pull out one when I want some water. I’ll let you know how it works. I plan on trying it on Pesach since vitamin water is not kosher l’pesach.
Amein to adorable’s second post!
I, too, know a lot of “odd couples”. They do say opposites attract. Have you ever seen couples where the husband seems so meek and shy while the wife is quite outgoing? Or other such examples? I guess they balance each other out. As long as they are happy, that’s what counts. I wonder what ppl think of my husband and me as a couple. Hmm! Interesting thought. I guess I’ll never know. How about all of you? Do any of you see urselves as an “odd couple”?
I don’t know. I don’t agree with Zeeskite and Avram in MD. To me a near miss means it almost missed which in turn means it HIT.
So nice to have these conversations about such important matters, isn’t it? 🙂
I guess with all the serious stuff going on in the world, we just need a little fun. Oy – if this is fun, we better all get a life 🙂
Health: it’s still not your concern. if you don’t have any helpful information, don’t post. you sounded very judgmental. i don’t mean to sound rude but i just thought your comment was a bit out of line.
eclipse: not the same thing.
Been there – done that. I too started dating at 19 with the hopes I’d be married by 20. But guess what? It wasn’t meant to be. I dated for years. There were times I had a few calls a week, but more often, months went by with no suggestions. I, too, felt empty -VERY EMPTY. My whole high school class was married, so were my other friends – YES – I was the ONLY one left! My time clock was ticking away. I was sure I would never get married and have children, chas v’shalom. What a horrible thought!!!
But when Hashem knew the time was right, He sent me my bashert. We are married and have 3 wonderful children.
I know this is easier for me to say now, but really – DON’T GIVE UP! DON’T DESPAIR! Keep davening. Daven for other singles as well, even if you don’t have their names. Just have the kavanah.
I hope to hear great news from all of you very soon!
btw – there are a lot of NYers living in chicago. i am one of them. growing up in ny, i used to think ny was the ONLY place for frum ppl. well guess what? it’s not true.
when i got engaged, my boss at the time asked me if i’m really going to live in such a hick town as chicago!!!
when do we get to hear what she actually said?
Is there a web site for Basic Colors?
candy613 – the shell station is on Lincoln and Devon.
But seriously, my daughter just got some at It’z you for $15.00 I think. Are u looking for a specific brand? She got kiki ricci.
phew! i thought you meant change your spouse for someone else. but i guess you would have written “exchanging your spouse” LOL 🙂
anyway, i think i’ll keep mine even though i haven’t been able to change him in the past almost 21 yrs. 😉
When i was in college, i took a few diff psych courses. thought i’d be interested in going into the field. anyway, it was funny cuz, our abnormal psych teacher was really abnormal himself – really weird. our child psych teacher acted like a kid – sat on the desk with his legs in the pretzel position. it was like this with the other psych teachers as well.
i also happen to know a marriage counselor/ psychotherapist who was MARRIED THREE TIMES!!! well i guess she certainly has experience 🙂
so i guess since i didn’t end up going into this field, i must be pretty normal 🙂
