too long before…
syag- thanks, i couldnt figure out how to say that.
Life is complicated kids. People go off for a multitude of reasons. Some just start going off, some are off for years then return, some change, some are lo aleinu gone forever. Its complicated, its painful, its ongoing, its a private struggle. We can daven and wish for the best, and thats as far as most of us can go in an anonymous poster’s difficulty. Then we can respect their privacy and emotions. Believe me, it’s not an easy nisayon… Sending a hug and hope for besuros tovos to all those with a child, sibling, parent, cousin struggling with his/her derech
lol that was amazing!! Well played 🙂
leave the land!
the fine yeshivish 🙂
you wouldnt have rly been able to stop them. It was good of you to say something though. Terrible that this is what simchas purim has come too…
also, when people sign up, if they don’t unselect it, linkedIn will send emails out to everyone on their contact list. Also, linkedIn suggests friends they think you’d like to connect to. So these emails you are getting to connect, in almost all the time, the person isn’t even aware you’ve been emailed from them
nsh- probably not as such
or if u still have congestion til it clears your system. Refuah shleima!
i say tisalaim and meheira. I know different bentchers have it different. Theres another shabbos zemer with different wording in different bentchers (though which eludes me at this hour)
boxer. Or a lap dog.
Swat- start with questioning what BP family would buy a dog!
then i agree with you and no your child does not, and that shadchan needs a lesson on onaas devorim and interpersonal mentchlichkeit. If the shadchanim ur approaching believe ur not yeshivish, ask ur neighbors n friends
you say you are only looking for a sfardi for your child, so you do feel a difference between ashkenazim and sfardim. If you are sfardi and only looking for a sfardi, it’ll anyhow make things simpler to go to a shadchan who knows sfardiim, no? I dont think it is meant in an insulting way. If you would be open to an ashkenazi, the shadchan would likely have a different approach. There are a few sfardi-ashkenazi couples in my family, but for the sfardim who uphold sfardi traditions, it is a different culture in some ways so i do understand the differentiation, don’t you?
why are you grouping all shadchanim n all ashkenazim as narrow-minded based on what i’d guess was a bad experience you had?
first check the expected battery life of your phone online. You might have just chosen a poor model. If not, call the company directly and dont hang up until this is resolved. Either get a new phone to replace it from them, or ask for another model or refund.
by golly, what are these ppl saying?? It’s a congested nose with no other symptoms! Don’t consistantly take ibuprofen, self-prescribe antibiotics, or medicate without a doctor PLEASE! The firs indication you’ve given of something to be worried about is the toothache. Sinus infections are painful, so if you have no pain it’s likely not. But the toothachey feeling is often really sinus infection, so there’s finally something to tell your doctor about and get checked out. If it turns out to not be sinus infection, be nice to your body! Be healthy, sleep, feel free to alleviate your symptoms with spicy things, nasal rinses, garlic and exercise (but dont drain yourself if your immune system is already working overtime), but dont run for the medicine cabinet!
there is no cure for the common cold. Only ways to alleviate symptoms or help your body stay strong. it’s interesting that posters are suggesting a doc. It cant hurt! But if you’re not unwell, just sniffly, you might have gotten over your first cold but caught a second one in the interim.
”remedies”-popular one is vitamin c tho im not sure overdosing is a great idea (tho rly thats to prevent catching a cold, not too helpful after the fact), staying well hydrated is important, rest, exercise but not overdoing it, hot drinks can help congestion, honey and lemon can help a sore throat, cold fresh air can help a stuffy head. In other words, be healthy 🙂
also some posters might be there!
syag- ”Let’s say I’m sure it wasn’t from me…” wow that was out of character. That sounded like a line from the wolf of past, whom you used to encourage and tell not to talk about himself that way! If it wasn’t from you too, the lesson wouldn’t have stuck with him
on a serious note, i discovered a few weeks ago that some people still think you are supposed to put butter or oil on a burn. DON’T, it will trap the heat and make it continue burning inside for longer. Just cold water for min 15 minutes
ok this thread really made me grin 🙂
daasYochid etal- sorry for going awol. Mdg got me- thanks mdg for clarifying. I meant bashing yct and bashing this rabbi when noone knows who he is and if he is or isnt ‘reliable’.
I did not at all mean anything towards the OP.
And kavod- most agreed she did right declining the invitation, myself included, and even the way she did it. But many other posters and even some who did agree said that letting the rabbi know you wouldnt eat by him is a lack of kavod. Even if she would have told him straight out no, (assuming not embarrassing in front of others was a factor,) i dont understand why declining the invitation would be a lack of kavod. What’s improper about declining an invitation?
im not quite following the majority opinion here that saying no was a lack of kavod. S/he did it in the best way by not being direct but rather avoiding answering imo, but in any case, if w.a.h. (im just gonna assume female 🙂 )was makpid on yoshon, cholov yisroel, or gebroktz and the rabbi was not, would that be a lack of kavod for her to say she wouldn’t join him for his meals? He was asking if she would eat by him, and she declined. Thats a lack of kavod how?
More importantly, im not quite following why this turned into a bashing thread, or why half the above posts were allowed up. One way or another, it’s loshon hora with no tachlis here.
hey writer-at-heart- it was uncomfortable that’s for sure! I dont think he would have said it if he thought you would hesitate to eat by him, so i dont think he meant to put you on the spot. That being said, i dont think you should have lied. Just one reason would be dealing with an invitation when it came- better to nip that problem in the bud. He may have been caught off guard at your answer but i doubt he’s still offended if he ever was. There are jews on alllll places of the full spectrum and im sure he knows not everyone would trust his level. And definitely no need and you shouldnt go apologize. Dont apologize for your frumkeit! You’re not imposing it on him.
As a thought, realize because the range of jews on college is broad, perhaps his comments/psakei halacha you questioned in the past were for a specific individual he believed needed that heter, and may not be halachically assur but something many are machmir on just etc. Just a thought for dan lkaf zchus, but not a reason to change your stanceFebruary 6, 2014 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm in reply to: What did people do before measuring cups were invented? #1004148
estimating??? Just like many still do today
And yeast. Or sour dough or any other fermenting item if they didnt have i’d assume
niiiice. Thanks for sharing!
then your experience is the exception, not the norm :-/
secular frummy- do u know how painful it is? Cuz not very!
not as a baby! Because the hole can shift as their ears grow. When they ask. Or offer after age 8January 26, 2014 7:38 am at 7:38 am in reply to: Do you expect your husband to wash dishes after he eats…? #999519

Well, that’s gotta be a new record for shortest-lived poster!January 21, 2014 1:21 am at 1:21 am in reply to: What educational options does a chassidisher yingermon have? #999122
why any difference than a litvishe older man? Not teasing. Really, why any different?
If zk is her…..? Cuz last i heard zk was a him
writersoul- withya there kid :-/
ommis- there are these cart w 2 levels, the top is the same as the bottom but half the size. Safety-wise, it’s the same as laying the baby in the main part of a cart you are talking about. Big enough for a baby to fit and move around, with high enough sides that he couldnt possibly roll out, and divided from the part for the toddler to sit. Safe for an infant lying on a blanket or in a snow suit imo…
thats one of those phrases that can backfire. Yes, a minimal few might appreciate it, most won’t. It’s like telling someone who is sitting shiva that only strong people are tested. Thanks but no thanks, they’d rather not.
i think some posters are visualizing ‘the top part’ of the shopping cart as the place for toddlers to tosit with their feet hanging forward out, and some as the upper half level of the 2 levelled shopping carts..
nope, throwing up is usually not a choice. It’s uncontrollable.
Life is like the ocean. Sometimes quiet, sometimes stormy, and sometimes calm but with a raging undertow.

Miritchka- i didnt mean that. I meant that even if someone were worried abt the object on the baby poking the baby’s stomach or legs because of a corner, the puffy snowsuit would prevent that. You are right the lolly example was a bad one because of plastic.
And i think the permission/dignity thing is going too far. You dont ask your child whether he’d like a needle, or if he wants to brush his teeth. Or in this case, if the screaming child was 4 and you are of the opinion that such a child should be taken out of the store, do you ask him to follow you, or pick him up and walk out? You do not need your child’s permission to give him a chore (at least not under 8 for the liberal-minded), and yes as a parent, you can give appropriate punishment/consequences. It’s not dignifying to change a child’s dirty diaper or spilled on shirt either.
Ken zayn- you are blaming the system for pushing mothers to have ‘too many’ children which you say causes them to act improperly from exhaustion etc as you see applicable in this scenario. One key point missing though: from what we knoe, this mother only has one child.
put flour, salt and food coloring in a bowl. Scrape floor of local butcher’s back room. Add to bowl and mix well. Also feel free to toss in any scraps from counter, including bone bits, chewy cartilage and stringy sinews. Stuff into cow intestine or plastic bag and staple ends shut. Optional: slice and wrap in foil so the pieces are neatly cut and dont fall apart later. Also makes the cut parts crispier.
Cook in cholent til mushy and it has absorbed enough cholent flavor to disguise its own taste. Alternatively, place in pan and fill quarter way up with shmaltz. Bake for many hours, flipping some way through so the top doesnt dry out.
Enjoy your heart-attack in a bag dish!
If anyone knows of a butcher/mashgiach who watches the making of/makes kishka and actually eats it too, post here and surprise me!
you’re worried about sounding rude? Why not a simple, sorry i’m not comfortable doing that?
wiy- to let the baby scream in a busy supermarket: improper up to debate for parenting experts, neglectful not though
wiy- picking your yogurt when your baby starts crying is not neglectful. If the baby was in pain or had been screaming for 5 min yes, but an infant doesnt have to be picked up the minute he starts crying.
If the baby could have been hurt by what was put around/on him, then it would upset me. If the baby was in a big puffy snowsuit and she put a bag of lollies on him, nope doesnt bother me. Not that i would personally do it.

a- dont use the card or you reduce the chance of recovery greatly
b- these often can be recovered. Find out how much it costs to professionall recover, it may not be much. I dowloaded a free program once n was able to recover my pics on a corrupted sd card. I cant remember ofhand what program it was, i do remember i first tried recuva(?) and that one didnt work.
