I just looked at the newly started and ended thread about hiking that Cedarhurst started. A moderator ended it complaining something to the effect that he is really me. Don’t you think this is getting out of hand already? It’s one thing to make jokes and have fun, but this is really “a bit over the top”.
Please keep your rants to a minimum. Thank you.
You left out the most obvious: Shticky Guy!
I’ll try. You have dreadlocks, mini mouse bow tie, and you smoke a cigar.
A great diet, at least something to keep in mind, is the table diet. Only eat at the table, sitting down, with a prepared portion. This is mainly useful for not gaining back what you lost. Plan the times of your meals and snacks, and don’t Chap things out of the pantry. No nibbling. No pinching food out of serving plates. Even if your meals are large, this keeps a lot in place.
Actually, I’m referring to the Gemara in Eiruvin 13b (and Brachos 64)

Translation: Whoever tries to push his luck (lit. hour), his luck will push him. Whoever accepts his fate, fate will stand him well.
I know that the whole issue of Mazal is confusing to some/many, and unliked by even more. It is something that has to be properly understood, with its appropriate context. Rashi explains this Gemara that when you notice that times aren’t good you shouldn’t press it. Don’t keep on investing more and more.
Of course, it doesn’t mean that you should give up. Also, how do you know when your Mazal switched? However, I think that the OP had a good understanding of how to apply this, being that it was a personal observation.
I think the OP was about how to behave more than what to believe, so we’ll try not to discuss Bitachon & Hishtadlus (as much as there is to discuss).
Most remembered: JOSEPH!
The actual Issur is to give someone a name like shorty, funny face, Zalman the knucklehead and so on.
A name that sticks to him/her is a lot worse than any particular insult. A name puts a person into a category and it stays — other people pick it up.
What’s the Halacha regarding calling someone Joseph, though?
Are you joking:?)
You did already write the book. You just have to gather it together and print it.
There’s a Gemara about that. Either someone will post it, or I will later.
I think people confuse lie with joke. Instead of saying, I was just joking, say, I was just lying.January 9, 2011 2:32 pm at 2:32 pm in reply to: Councilman Greenfield; Can We End Alternate Side Parking Permanently? #725849
I’m sure you didn’t think of it, but he’s complaining about the law itself, not the ticket.
My bite is louder than my bark.
Which poster is here the longest, cherrybim?January 7, 2011 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm in reply to: Councilman Greenfield; Can We End Alternate Side Parking Permanently? #725841
I don’t think so. Some stuff gets pushed to the side, but there is cleaning being done.
Are you referring to the Mod’s comment? If you use FireFox or Google’s Chrome, as you type, it checks your spelling.
Even more than living close together is the fact that we are a family. It’s a plain fact that we relate to each other much differently than anyone in the outside world. When amongst family, you behave looser, you ask more questions and give more advice. In a sense, everyone is everyone else’s Shvigger.
Nobody mentioned or mentions Kol Yisrael Areibim as a reasoning to actually behave this way, it is the just naturally born from the kind of close knit relationship.
If you act professionally toward, a bit removed and aloof, that will keep them away. I suspect that you do enjoy their company, otherwise they shouldn’t be allowed to hang out. If that’s true, you can speak to them more openly.
So there’s your welcome.
I just can’t see it as a problem, try as I might. I enjoyed reading a Dr. Suess book made in those days, should I fast? This is really pushing it. You are supposed to feel along with your brothers, but this goes way beyond that.
Are you also a screen name McCarthyist?
Every situation is different. It depends on how your children see you, and her. I grew up with many an interesting guest at the Shabbos table. It only added to the Taam of Shabbos. Taking in to live is much more complicated than that, but you have to know your children. It would be best to speak it over with a Baal Ruach Hakodesh.
I’m too secretive about my shortcomings.

On the contrary, he won the bet.
Check it up. Why can’t you handle the news? If someone said on a female sheep that it should be a Pesach and it has a child, can it be used for the Korban, is the mother a Shlamim, is the child a Shlamim, what if he’s born after Pesach?
Well, you too might be surprised to learn that the Gemara in Temura actually asks this question, regarding the child.
Yes, it’s a good question to ask about him.
As I tried writing earlier, I notice that those of you who have no problem with this are the same proponents of girl-boy friends in the thread about that.
To those of us who hold it is Assur, doing it for the sake of being more comfortable, more fun, and for the couples to know each other better are no Hetter. As far as seeing him in many situations, that’s a valid reason for being with him, but to mingle with other boys for that purpose does not fall under the category of dating to get married.
In real life no one calls me Joseph.
