    There are two disparate issues.
    1, Basic knowledge of what does what and what might be a problem.
    2, Having the actual skill, knowledge and correct tools to do the repair in a safe manner. Doing it wrong might be worse than being stuck.
    For those that can understand. I recently had the dealer change a timing chain on a Honda built car. The mechanic could not loosen some nuts so did his best. The chain broke later on and thus destroyed my engine. The Dealer/warranty resolved it.

    @ Syag
    No, I am not agreeing with you.
    We are not comparing to a Hotel we are discussing costs to be at home. Airfare and rental do not enter that equation.
    I will concede that South Florida has always had more options for prepared food and therefor more competitive pricing. Add an extra $200-500 and that will cover anyplace in the USA.

    In my case small family was defined as Mother, Father and two children aged between 5 and 12. eating children sized portions of adult food.
    To Syag…The calculation of costs was for food and disposables only. The purposes of this post was to discuss direct costs and not to include airfare or rental costs.
    special note to LOwer our tuition, The food you listed was likely used for cakes. even if miscalculated and doubled it does not add up to a lot and that is for lots of cakes. I purchased cakes which are likely really bad for your health but more filling than homemade. I have to admit that the options for purchased Pesach food in Miami are possibly more available and lower cost than in NYC.

    I have often helped my wife make Pesach in a rented apartment in Miami. This involved no cooking and purchasing all food items ready cooked. The total food and food related expense was under $2,000 per small family. This is substantially lower than anybody would guess and much loser than Hotel Programs.

    What you are really comparing is chocolate that is made subject to EU rules compared to SWISS. While the EU rules ensure a more truly chocolate experience I have found Swiss to be quite good. It is my understanding that Swiss chocolate can include vegetable oils while EU requires cocoa fat.

    reply to ubiquitin,

    As far as Wakefield, start with hi data and go from there. The biggest issue was that he did not get proper permission from his subjects. The fact that his data

    Nobody that leans in the direction of studying vaccine risks gets funding. That is the fact. What are your qualifications? have you taken any advanced, post college level courses in any related field?

    The hatchet job on Wakefield was very similar to the political tricks exposed during the election.

    Reply to BK613.

    If you do the follow the money route do it both ways. Start with Anthony Fauci, leader of the fight for vaccines and;

    see why his vaccine was used even allowing contaminated batches.

    see why an alternate vaccine was barred while contaminated.

    Please continue and add up all the research being done on fields like AIDS and compare it to autism. Autism involves great costs to society and Taxpayers, why not solve it just like we did for AIDS? I am sure research went every direction for AIDS but certain avenues are barred in autism research.

    PS: if you do not have an advanced science degree stop regurgitating things you have read elsewhere. If you do have an advanced degree please read and consider the above.

    Reply to BK613 and others;

    The issue with the MMR and the autism concern is that there seems to be some correlation in timing and otherwise between autism onset and the 18 month dose of the MMR vaccine. It could be nothing but it needs study.

    I can’t guaranty much in life but if anybody really read up on this and Wakefields research they would be left with questions.

    I can tell you that the establishment is set up so that anybody that wants to do research in this direction never gets funding. I do not know the answers but don’t be so smug abd assume you know it all because you read that vaccines never cause harm.

    I was employed at a Long Term care institution and they mandated getting a second, updated flu vaccine a few years ago. I reported to the DNS that I would not be doing so. His reply was that he would enforce the rule after he got the second flu vaccine. I asked when that would be and he said NEVER, he would not risk his health.

    I think it is based on the concerns some parents have regarding any autism risk involved. While many say that the vaccine has been proven safe it would be more acurate to state that there is no clear connection between autism and the vaccine and some studies show little correlation. There is no absolute proof that there is no connection.

    Maybe it is time to have a Kennedy in charge of people with the right knowlege and credentials look into this. The powers that be till now included Fauci, a quack that made millions selling his own superfluous vaccine and was chairman of the vaccine commision in the USA. His vaccine was not recalled when it wasfound to have live virus contamination.

    Vaccines are made with live virus and anything can happen in any batch that might affect those that use that batch only.

    It should also be noted that often these vaccines are sold in multi dose bottles and the bottle gets old and possibly contaminated. By comparison, flu vaccines and dental anesthetics are single dose in most cases. This shows that the cost is not prohibitive for single doses but some pediatricians are more concerned with cost than risks.

    I am not trying to rectify what happened.

    It might be that he sat in one of the extra revenue seats that offer extra legroom. JetBlue does not allow sitting in those seats under any curcumstance. They must be very hard on their cabin crew in forcing them to be tough because I was berated by a crew mwmber for entering the row while I let her pass in the aisle.

    I respect anybody’s right to be frum but the only real way to fly under those conditions is to pay for aa extra seat and yes, there is such a possibility.

    I have flown quite a bit and rarely is there any restriction on switching seats after boarding has completed. I also believe the weight balance issue is more front to back rather than side to side.

    Anything we eat, drink or inhale can have effects that help or harm. Herbs and food supplements sometimes pass under the radar-The Government can’t ban them easily and people think they must be safe.

    Many products such as Fish Oil can affect bleeding. Please check with a qualified MD. This might even be true for the Israeli product that lies about these details.

    One purpose of a State Test is that all students taking it are taking the same exam and graded honestly. If you are a good student this is where you shine compared to some garbage that passed through school simply by being passed as a favor.

    comment about mileage;

    Please consider how much and how you intend to drive it.

    If you expect to drive very little, the calculations are not that important, you won’t consume that much gas.

    These incidents did not happen years ago. They are a direct result of having no air leakage and great insulation. it might be healthier to have less perfect insulation.

    This should really be answered for you by a health professional with health knowledge and specific knowledge of your situation.

    In the absence of those I will mix in.

    It was harder when I was diagnosed. lactaid pills nor milk did not exist. I ate no dairy for years.

    Really, most people can get away with a little, assuming this is an intolerance (stomach ache) and not a true allergy that can kill you or make you REALLY DANGEROUSLY SICK.

    Cold or fatty foods are digested slower so your natural or added enzymes get to work longer before they are messed up. Hot dairy would be much worse.

    Some yogurts can be less problematic because the lactose is digested into the sour taste of yogurt. Some other yogurts add too much milk powder as a thickener and this includes more lactose.

    I use a foreign product called LACTRASE, good luck finding it. It works. I use huge amounts of Lactaid brand milk. NOT CHOLOV YISROEL! It works great if it is marked 100% lactose free. I would never drink regular milk as the pills are not that strong to deal with regular milk.

    If you just got the diagnosis relax. It is not life altering. Chances are after a long period some intestinal inflamation will become less and other foods will be more easily digested. Always be suspicious of other foods that always make you sick, you might also have an intolerance to othr sugars.

    not so simple.

    I have B.B. shirts that have begun to tear after a certain number of washings. These are not rips on sharp objects and not seams.

    While they are not wrinkled they do not have the appearance of a fine cotton freshly pressed shirt, the fabric is thicker and does not breath.

    I am told that the Lakewood way is to use them mid week and not on Shaboss.
