    Def am not a fan of pizza that tastes like socks.

    Picky about toppings… For example, I won’t eat pizza that had onions in it (even if they are picked out). Mushrooms are also a no no.

    More crust is better.

    In summary, not a fan of all pizza.

    I don’t think that it should be banned, for the sake of freedom of speech.

    That said, it’s dismissive of a generation of voices, which deserve to speak.

    That said, the saying is also a backlash to all the talk about Millennials that we’ve been hearing and reading about for how long now? Too long.

    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a Miele in real life.

    All of their US stock looks like they only sell front-loading machines for consumers here, according to Miele’s website.

    Okay so on the other hand, who is this guy in my driveway? Better to ask him to move than call the police because a suspicious person is waiting in my driveway.

    How is the homeowner supposed to know that the other person isn’t up to something? Even someone who looks like a good Jew might be trouble. Maybe it’s a privacy issue too. Some people leave their curtains open. Or are simply walking inside in their pjs. It could be uncomfortable to have a stranger basically waiting around in your paved front yard.

    Where is the simcha hall? Does this happen to you every time there is a simcha?

    Maybe the homeowner deals with this every simcha. Another guy and another guy wait in his driveway. Maybe he values his and his family’s privacy.

    Thank you Gadolhadorah! After reading your post about Speed Queen’s having small capacities, the brand was removed from the list of options. I didn’t realize how small the washers were. You just saved my friend a trip to the premium appliance store that isn’t open on Sundays (and probably $1-grand to boot!).

    Thanks everyone!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Lowerourtuition11210: For anyone with a front loader, if you make a little ramp on the floor in front of it, you can hypothetically blow your dirty clothes into the front loader with a leaf blower. Getting the clothes out would still require bending though.

    In my high school AP psychology class. My teacher went to play a video for us to watch and for a moment we saw mayhem on the news. We didn’t know what that weird clip was all about so my teacher played the video, and then there was an announcement on the loud speaker. We had no idea that we had just watched what must have been live coverage for a moment. Unreal.

    Gadolhadorah: Thank you for your info!

    About Front-Loaders: One major downside (dealbreaker) of front loaders is that they get stinky/moldy and need to be cleaned monthly. In South Florida, it seems like everyone who has a front-loader not only needs to keep the lid open after each use, but tackle any mold issues monthly.

    So, are you saying that it’s not worth it to buy a Maytag or Whirlpool nowadays (both owned by Whirlpool)?

    What about GE?

    … I’ve heard that electronic panels are more expensive to fix. Also, LG parts supposedly discontinue, so fixing them is more expensive?

    Have you ever seen/used a Speed Queen?

    Thank you 🙂

    Philosopher, the idea of “cleansing” doesn’t sound so terrible.

    In today’s context, “cleansing,” to me, is a process that I associate with beautification tasks, such as losing weight, cleaning the pores in my face, and rinsing the oils from my hair. I had pictured my soul having to go through a spiritual car wash of sorts, unpleasant, yet necessary, but in no means horrendous and painful.

    Serta *Medium* Hybrid Glenmoor from Sam’s Club in store

    You can test out the mattress in the store.

    It’s about $500 for the mattress. Mine is resting on a Bedder Bed base, which doesn’t need a box spring.

    *Don’t order this Serta mattress online unless it says MEDIUM… as far as I’ve seen, the online Sam’s Club store only sells the Firm.

    …I just purchased this mattress last month and for the first time since 2010 I have not woken up with shoulder pain (or any pain!). It is not needed, but full disclosure, I added a memory foam topper from Costco, which makes my sleep extra cushy.

    Btw, last month I also bought and RETURNED Costco’s alleged “plush” Sealy Response Performance Gray Cove Plush Queen Mattress and Foundation because it was ridiculously hard/firm.

    Mosquitos in your house?

    Why pester yourself with a fly swatter, bug zapper, mosquito net, topical bug repellent, citronella (though I think that most citronella candles are for outdoor use only, and/or whatever else they’re selling today?!

    Do yourself a favor and just get yourself a gross of spiders for the weekend while you spend Shabbos in your local Super 13 motel. By the time you return, those pesky blood suckers will be gone. When you return to your home, just sweep up your full-bellied spiders and toss them into your backyard.

    Coffee Addict: I own no stock in the company. I do not work for any sales team.

    The benefits that I get from assistive technology tools are immense on their own.

    Though, to be upfront and honest, I am currently navigating Otter a.i. I still need a couple weeks of experience with the app and program.

    It’s just amazing how much better my life is with these tools!!

    Otter a.i. is giving me something that could have helped me significantly as recently as last year.

    Really a blessing!!!

    Is writing a document on your phone the same as typing one on your computer?

    The Livescribe pen audiorecords your handwritten notes, and makes them available with the audio on your computer.

    Handwriting notes helps the brain process information to be stored into memory. Having a phone record audio on it’s own is not the same as writing notes by hand, especially for kinesthetic and/or visual learners.
