    Does anyone know the words of “Anavim”?

    I absolutely love the song, but I want to know the exact words.

    Also, where is it from, meaning, where are these words written?

    Windows Movie Maker is great for making a video of pictures and clips. It isn’t so complicated to use, you just have to figure it out.

    in reply to: What Newspaper / Magazine do You Read / Trust Most? #681647

    I read the Mishpacha, Binah and Hamodia.

    But, I don’t trust any newspaper 😉

    Hashem never “doesn’t answer Tefillos”. Hashem saves every Tefilla uttered by every Jew and Uses it when He decides it is needed. We can never know what our Tefillos accomplish. Sometimes, we daven so hard for a Yeshuah, but we don’t get we want. In such cases, Hashem has decided to say “no”, and save the Tefillos to be used later.

    We, down here on earth, with our limited vision, can only hope and believe that what happens is the best for us and Hashem is taking care of us.

    I hope and daven that the baby has a Refua Sheleima B’karov, and the family has the strength to overcome this tragedy.

    May Klal Yisroel only see Simchos.

    The Baby Jogger City Mini is an excellent carriage that reclines all the way and folds up in a snap using one hand.

    Is this a marketplace or Shidduchim?

    Are you talking about people or merchandise?

    By us the men do the building, and the girls have fun putting up the decorations.

    Most of it is the kids’ Sukkos projects from school.

    Fill up the hampers, then some laundry baskets, then the bathtub…

    This story of contracting diseases from rat urine on can tops has been making the usual email hoax rounds for many years. It has proven to be without any basis, totally false. The disease Leptosirosis is real but is not contracted in this manner.

    This is old, but it’s still good!


    OLD VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long,

    building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays

    the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

    The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

    MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!


    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his

    house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays

    the summer away.

    Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands

    to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others

    are cold and starving.

    CBS, NBC, PBS , CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering

    grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table

    filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

    How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is

    allowed to suffer so ?

    Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody cries

    when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’

    Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the

    news stations film the group singing, ‘We shall overcome.’ Jesse then has

    the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.

    Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the

    ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an

    immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

    Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act

    retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

    The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs

    and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is

    confiscated by the government.& nbsp;

    Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation

    suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal

    judges that Bill Clinton appointed from a list of single-parent welfare


    The ant loses the case.

    The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the

    ant’s food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be

    the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he doesn’t maintain it.

    The ant has disappeared in the snow.

    The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now

    abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once

    peaceful neighborhood.

    MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2008!!

    David Miller* [*not his real name], a pious observant Jew was at

    Logan Airport getting ready to board United Flight 175. He was going to LA on an important business trip and had to make this flight.

    A lot depended on it.

    He boarded the plane, watched the doors close, and sat down.

    Suddenly he remembered that he left his tefillin (ritual boxes with straps worn by Jewish men in prayer) in the terminal boarding area.

    He politely asked the stewardess if he could go back and retrieve his tefillin, which were sitting just a few feet from the gate.

    She told him that once the doors of the plane closed, no one was allowed off the plane.

    Not about to take this sitting down, he asked if he could speak to the pilot to obtain special permission. Surely the pilot would understand.

    The pilot did not comply. He simply restated the policy.

    David was not about to lose this precious mitzvah, or let the holy tefillin get lost like that, so, not knowing what else to do, he started screaming at the top of his lungs, “I am going to lose my tefillin.” The crew asked him to be quiet, but he refused to stop making a fuss – a rather loud fuss.

    Finally, he was making such a ruckus and a tumult that the flight crew told him that they would let him off the plane, simply because he was a nuisance.

    In fact, even though it would only take about 90 seconds to run out, grab his tefillin, and run back – they were not going to >wait for him. No matter. David was not about to lose his tefillin, >even if it caused him great inconvenience or cost his business a loss.

    He left the plane, never to re-board.

    This flight was United #175; the second plane to reach the WTC.

    David’s devotion to a mitzvah saved his life.

    The consequences of David’s actions do not end there.

    Originally the terrorists wanted both towers struck simultaneously to maximize the explosive carnage. Later it was learned that due to this whole tumult, the takeoff was delayed, causing a space of 18 minutes between the striking of the two towers.

    This delay made it possible for thousands more people to escape alive from both buildings. Literally thousands, if not tens of thousands, of lives were spared because one Jew would not forsake his beloved tefillin.

    Dear Tech Support,

    Last year I upgraded from Bochur Life 7.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system Applications such as FarbrengenNight 3.0, Party Night 2.5, BaglesSnoozes 6.1 and Hangout 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.

    In addition, applications such as Garbage Out 3.3 and House Work 2.1 have gone from select-as needed to continuous schedule, ignoring them causes Night-on-the-Couch 1.0 to take over all activity.

    I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications.

    I am thinking about going back to BochurLife 7.0, but the uninstall does not work on this program Can you help me, please!!


    A Distressed User

    Dear Distressed User:

    This is a very common complaint which is mostly due to a p rimary misconception.

    Many people upgrade from BochurLife 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES program.

    Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and was designed to run everything.

    It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to BochurLife 7.0.

    It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

    You cannot go back to BochurLife 7.0 because Life1.01 is not designed to do this.

    Some have tried to install BochurLife 7.0 or Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than the original system.

    Look in your manual under “Warnings-Alimony/Child Support”.

    I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and just deal with the situation.

    I suggest installing background application program C:YES DEAR to alleviate software augmentation.

    Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Partnership Faul ts (GP Fs).

    You must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur,regardless of their cause.

    The best course of action will be to enter the command C:APOLOGIZE.

    In any case avoid excessive use of YES DEAR because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to normal.

    The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all the GPFs.

    Wife 1.0 is a great program, but very high maintenance.

    Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0.

    I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0.

    Do not, under any circumstances, install OtherFriends 3.3 as a primary operating system.

    This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

    Thanks for using our Tech Support.

    Hi! I love this thread! Keep it going strong.

    A few months after my grandfather was nifter, my little cousin pointed to a picture of him and asked her mother,

    “Here Zeidy was nifter already?”
