    Hire a doula!

    Interview a few to find someone who you are comfortable with and who shares your goals for the birth. Worth every penny! Statistics show births with doulas have fewer complications, fewer c-sections, and more positive memories.

    “that’s cuz when the slaves were freed the plantation owners couldn’t figure out how to get the cotton picked so we only had enough to last us til recently and that’s it.”

    There are a lot of intelligent, educated, worldly people in the CR. It surprises me that after a week, no one has commented on this statement.

    Whether said seriously or not, this is how hatred is spread.

    Maybe my husband’s car is only partly yeshivish – the radio works until you turn on the lights.

    It’s diesel and vibrates like crazy. You bounce up and down at a red light. I think if I bring a jar of cream with me when I go for a drive it would turn to butter by the time I got home!

    Moose Knuckles or Canada Goose. Hands down. Natural fibers are superior to synthetic.

    I have a Moose Knuckles coat and it kept me warm at -40 in the wind when I lived in Canada.

    My husband’s car is from 1984! Not going to do the age calculation for you (lol). Drive always works, but we never know if we’ll have reverse or park.

    I once had a van that was held together with duct tape. I kept a roll in the glove compartment so that when a piece of the vehicle fell off, I could get out and tape it back on. Then one day while I was driving, the glove compartment fell out, too!

    Rabbi Ashear said you are allowed to daven for nissim on Chanukah. (Don’t know the source he used.)

    Red blood? Blue blood?

    My son is color-blind. One day, when he was around 4 years old, there was screaming coming from his room. I ran in to find him staring at a cut on his arm. He said “Mommy, I’m bleeding GREEN!”

    There are some very detailed Seforim on ribbis, if that interests you.

    Sorry, I don’t have author or publisher info in front of me.

    Fragrance in anything like air freshener, fabric softener, etc, is usually a toxic chemical. Look for natural products that list the ingredients, such as essential oils.
