    I, too live in Israel and am about to order a few pairs, but I am just scared that they won’t come in good condition. I was reading the reviews and some people wrote that they came bent or scratched from the shipping.

    How did your’s come wrapped?

    I also read that they have terrible customer service so I will order it on my amex and talk to them if there are any problems.

    Thanks in advance for your reply!!

    “OBAM- I agree that on the first dates that would be inappropriate but once they are engaged I think he can nicely discuss it with her.”

    If they are engaged then they should definitely be able to talk about the rain.

    It has to be hefker before it was layed.

    R’ Elyashiv says that you have to physically pick up the mother and shoo her away, which is almost impossible because they have eyes on the side of their head.

    All you have to do is pick up the eggs or chick 12 tfachim and put it back down. after you do it, it can be done by others again.

    Its also a big mitzva to be very careful while doing it.

    Star K has a small sefer online all about it, google it.

    in reply to: Commiting to two dates?? #797613

    The first date with my wife was terrible but since I commited myself to always giving 2 dates I went out for a second date with her.

    I did not have a good time with her and wasn’t too interested in seeing her again.


    When I finished that second date I was ready to marry her.

    I think it’s impossible to judge someone in a few hours, go out with her again, you never know!!!

    Remember, always treat her respectfully even if you know it will not work out.

    Hatzlacha Rabba

    Sometimes we need a kick in the pants, its unfortunate but we don’t realize until something terrible happens.

    in reply to: Tipping when the service is terrible. (or not there at all) #792691

    I happen to agree with you, but it was Rosh Chodesh so I wanted to spend whatever it costs on a nice meal.

    One would think that going to a real nice place you would not run into problems with the waitstaff but apparently I was wrong.

    And once in a while its nice to give the wife a night off from cooking and cleaning.

    in reply to: Tipping when the service is terrible. (or not there at all) #792689

    In the one and a half hours that I was there I had to deal with 3 waitresses and 2 busboys, I doubt he’ll fire them all.

    But I’m gonna take your advice and email them for the restaurants good (and mine a little).

    in reply to: Tipping when the service is terrible. (or not there at all) #792685

    There was not much hakaros hatov to be had there

    in reply to: Should the coffee room be split into two? #792224

    People that are more frum than you are usually not any less “normal” than you.

    The one reason we all love the coffee room is to hear and argue and discuss all the different views on almost anything you could think of.

    Splitting it up will make it much less interesting and not as entertaining.

    I don’t think you have to split it up, people just have to understand that not everyone fits in the same mold as they do and its not that terrible.

    And yes the super frum that are bored at work with internet should be here better than anywhere else.

    in reply to: Prewedding Jitters #790581

    I just got married 8 months ago. Best move of my life!!!! Just try to relax and not worry too much, everything will work out, it always does.

    I know I’m not married long but marriage is not as scary as most people make it out to be.

    They say you are at the best time of your life right now but I say it only gets better, much,much much,better.

    Just take it one step at a time and in a couple of weeks you’ll both be laughing about it!!!

    How about “kosher delight”

    in reply to: DIVORCE CRISIS – young couples getting divorced #1200052

    Chassanim and Kallos must be told that there is no way out of a marriage. Men go into a marriage thinking “if this one doesnt work out I’ll just find another”.

    I know too many people with this mindset and it destroyed their marriages.

    Another problem is that young couples are too embarrased or scared to go for help, or they think that what they are going through is fine, until it blows up in their faces. The chosson and kalla teachers must explain to them that its the right thing to do and you’ll be happier.

    in reply to: nails that are cut off and pregnant woman? #786416

    Is there anything to do about it if you cant find it?

    I heard something about dropping two pieces of wood on the floor and then throwing them out.

    Any truth to this?

    in reply to: Marrying a Prisoner of War #785888

    you gotta shave her head, make her nails grow long, no perfume or makeup, wear unflattering clothes, and wait a long time.

    The point was to make you not interested in her anymore.

    I’m gonna guess that it worked pretty often.

    in reply to: Quitting Smoking #784144

    I was smoking 2 packs a day for several years. I read Alan Carr’s book on quitting smoking and it did nothing for me until one day (my birthday) I took my last cig at 11:57 pm and never looked back. He explains in the book to wait for a big day to quit. The philosophy in the book kicked in and I knew for a fact that I was never going to take another another cigarette. That was exactly a year and a half ago. I recomend the book to any smoker who really wants to quit.

    in reply to: teeth whitening #766107

    i did the expensive tooth whitening a day before my wedding and i was extremely happy with the results.

    ive seen other people use the strips and i was not too impressed.

    the proffesional whitening takes only 20 minutes and is entirely painless.
