    yossi z., do you also do plumbing & electrical work as well or is just carpentry work that you do? I’m only asking cause sometimes when I’m in the need of one & my regular guy can’t come, it’s always good to have an alternate person who can come & take care of the job for you.

    In any event, I work for a R.E. Management Co. & I do secretarial work (Accts. Payable, p/r, phones, all types of clerical work that entails R.E.)process lease renewals, etc…. I’m here already for almost 8 yrs. (Late April will be 8 yrs.)

    Hey eclipse, I think I’ll have to follow suit cause since I came into the coffee rm. early Sunday morning, I think I’ve been so addicted to it-like even in work, I can’t get my work done normally w/o checking updates in the coffee rm. I know it’s a terrible thing, but, now it’s so hard to stop. I need to start disciplining myself to keep away from it & to get other stuff done too.

    Hi eclipse, how is your tooth/ear feeling today? Any better? Did you happen to check it out yet? If yes, so what were you told that you need to do? If not, I think you should take care of it ASAP before you encounter any type of problem. Take care & Hatzlacha Rabba on whatever treatment you may have to endure!!

    Wow!! That is an incredibly amazing story!!! But as I have heard time & time again-that there’s no such thing as a coincidence cause nothing happens by chance. Hashem is our master planner who plans all the interesting & maybe not so interesting scenes which take place in each of our lives. I guess you can call this amazing Hashgacha.

    eclipse, actually, no I’m the youngest in my family. We are KA”H 4 girls. Unfortunately, I’ve gone through a lot in my life. During a certain point in my life while living w/ my parents, although I love them to pieces, but things had to be a certain way while I lived there so it was somewhat difficult & stressful at times. I then got remarried -but it lasted all of 3 yrs. -I fell in pretty badly, unfortunately. So now, I guess you can say that I’m in the parshah of Shidduchim….

    Good Night!! I’m going to hit my sack for whatever is left of this night so that I can still function at work tomorrow. It’ll be a rather busy day at work. It’s the 1st of the month tomorrow & a lot will be happening so I Pashut need the energy to be able to get through my day. Take care & have a good one.

    To Sapphire, you can get lots of different information that’s needed for becoming a notary public online if you need it prior to the exam. I happen to be one myself & I use it all the time at the job that I work at.

    I certainly don’t consider myself perfect by any means. However, I always try to aim for perfection. But many people tell me that I’m a perfectionist (well, that has a lot to do w/ my upbringing-but I won’t get into that. It’s not something I really want to get into.) Sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn’t. When it works, I’m happy & when it doesn’t, well I guess I just try a little harder the next time to get a better result. All my life I was told/taught that ‘if there’s a will, there’s a way’. So I know that my input has to be the best that it can be so that the output can have the result of if not totally perfect then at least almost perfect.

    Yossi, maybe you could find a CD on it just like they have for other languages-you might be surprised to find one in Yiddish. I’m not sure that there is definitely one but, however it doesn’t hurt to try to find one out there. You just never know what you’ll find. Good Luck to you on your language learning mission.

    To Eclipse, I think that jewishgirl09 is probably right on this one. So far to date I’ve had 3 out of 4 wisdom teeth extracted. I have a feeling that my 4th one will be sooner than later. Every single time that I had a problem w/ the next wisdom tooth, I had literally crazy excruciating pain coming from my ear. It was not normally painful. It was really hard being at work at the same time as having the pain. I thought I was going out of my box already. When it comes to ear pain, I’m pretty sensitive to certain types of noises cause it just hurts my ear a lot. Like for ex. an electric stapler, ringing of phone amongst other things as well. But, I wish you lots of luck on getting whatever treatment is necessary done.

    in reply to: If you were buying a sheitel now, which would you buy, where and who #733701

    In answer to your question, I guess I would get the same company as I purchased just recently which was a Rose. The hairs on it feel very soft. I purchased it by my Shaitel Macher. Her name is Bella Klein. She calls her Co. BK Wigs. She’s an Israeli woman-she’s really very nice. She cuts & styles very well. As far as her prices, I can’t say only cause it’s hard to compare with other people who are in the line. I haven’t been to that many places so I wouldn’t be able to tell you if she’s cheaper than anyone else. She’s located in Boro Park on 55th Street Bet. 18th & 19th Ave. If you’re asking because you want to actually purchase a new one for yourself, then maybe first ask other people about her & then if you’re satisfied w/ what you hear, I can give you her number.

    Hello to all of you in this thread of new members. I’m here in the coffee rm for less than a day. But, I’ve been reading various different posts on occasion from time to time for quite some time-not sure exactly how long. I just started to post today for the first time.

    So wishing all of you a wonderful night & a great day tomorrow!!!!

    To tzvideer, thanks for your compliment!! Although I’m not done yet with all my inquiries, however, I definitely worked pretty hard in obtaining whatever information I’ve received so far.

    Just a slight clarification to all: When I wrote on a previous post that the skirts need to be 4″, I left out part of the sentence. I meant to say that it’s got to be 4″ below the knee & no less. No, they will not come w/ a measuring tape & measure each & everyone’s length of their skirts. But, it has to cover your knees when you stand & also when you sit down comfortably. If it looks too short, that’s when they will say something to the girl. I hope I clarified myself properly.

    Yes, I did hear of it & I heard the tape approximately about a yr. or 2 ago. It was an amazing, incredible, fascinating & truly humorous story in terms of the way he put it down. Although the story in and of itself is rather a sad one, but, however, the way in which he dramatizes the story, I was literally in hysterics-I just couldn’t stop laughing at the time. But, the lesson he brought out from there was truly amazing. It was extremely inspiring I must say.

    By the way, for those of you who may not know, you can find Rabbi Keleman’s article’s on http://www.Torahanytime.com. Just scroll down until you find his name/picture & click into it. They have some of his lecture’s posted there for anyone to listen to. Enjoy!!

    I can’t answer all of your questions, but all I can tell you is only from the research that I’ve done so far is that I keep hearing about how their very much into the Hashkafa-and how the girls really enjoy it & grow from it. They have a lot of shiurim through the first part of the day & then again in the evening too. In the afternoon, as I’ve said in my original post, they have these extra curricular courses that they give to the girls which they can use for life.

    As far as Shabbos is concerned, they usually have the girls stay in the dorm. & they have all the meals in the school. I’m told that they try to give them as much of a warm Shabbos as possible. On Shabbos, they also have numerous shiurim too. They try to bring in certain speakers from the area to come & speak to the girls on various topics I suppose.

    It seems also like their pretty firm on the concept of tznius (that the length of the skirts should be 4″, clothing not being tight fitting-if a girl comes w/ a garment which is against their rules &/or halacha they’ll either make the girl change or in a more severe case, they may take away the garment/skirt).

    The Jewish section of Gateshead from what I hear is just a few short blocks (aprrox. 5,6-I think)so there’s not much that one can do. The girls are basically on their own in their spare time & when they all go together on an outing, I think they have one or two of the girls who are there for their 3rd yr. (the 3rd yr. is optional) already as supervision for the girls. I was told that even the pizza shop has separate hrs. for boy & girls. Certain things they can get help from the Aim Bayit there-but from what I understand that most things like laundry, Dr., etc… they can go w/ a friend, but, they’re on their own pretty much. As far as the adj., I was told that in the beginning, it’s quite difficult to adjust-but, after a couple of weeks they bounce into it. And then when they come back from their extended vacations, it may take some time to adjust again but probably not as long as the first time it did.

    I don’t know too much more, so I hope that I answered some of your questions blstrasburger from whatever research I was able to obtain so far. Hatzlacha Rabba to you as well!!!!

    In the Gateshead Seminary school, do they have financial aid as well for those who have a difficult time financially, Also, when you say that some of the kids there stay there on some of their vacations & travel to the different places near there (other European countries, Eretz Yisrael, etc…) aren’t the tickets from there costly as well? That’s what my Father had told me when I discussed the matter w/ him. He used to travel a lot on business to Europe so he knows from experience. Any insights into this?

    To Truth be Told, I don’t think that he commented too much on it. I’ve asked my daughter if she happened to mention anything to her Father w/ regards to this matter & what if anything did he say? She said that he just said okay. It doesn’t sound like he put any thought into it.
