Sadly, I fear that some may actually believe that your post was said in all seriousness.June 14, 2010 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm in reply to: 5 Most Important Shidduch Questions #687622
Who doesn’t eat leftovers Sunday night???
I’d be afraid of marrying into a family that didn’t eat leftovers because ‘es pas nisht’!!
Gevalt! Where are all the besserer mentchen?!June 9, 2010 2:23 am at 2:23 am in reply to: Your Feedback: New YWN Website #992903
I know that if you hit the news story, you will see both the story and the comments. However, IMHO, it would make more sense that if you click on ‘opinions’, it should just link you to the bottom of the page with the comments, and allow you to scroll up for the story.June 8, 2010 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm in reply to: Your Feedback: New YWN Website #992900
I have the same issue as mark levin. When I click on ‘opinions’ I am taken to a separate page with comments only. I then have to click back to read the story. Maybe it’s a browser issue? I usually use Firefox.June 7, 2010 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm in reply to: online courses #686085
check it out. they’re really great to work withJune 3, 2010 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm in reply to: Your Feedback: New YWN Website #992893
Don’t know if anyone commented on this, but 2 things I don’t really like on the new main page:
#1 If you click on ‘opinions’ (which, by the way, I think would be better written as ‘comments’ since sometimes, the news is a Rav’s levaya or something of that nature, and then people are just commenting on it, there’s no ‘opinion’ per say), you have to then click back to get to the story. I think it would be better that if you click on opinions, you’re navigated to the section of the story page where people commented, and then you can just scroll up for the story.
#2 I liked it better when the name of the person who commented was below the comment, as opposed to above the comment as it is now. I think it made the name of the poster more visible. As well, I think the name of the poster should be clearer – i.e. bigger or a different color.
Thanks for a great website, in general, great job!
So are you saying that if a girl marries a learning boy and is out all day working so that she can support the family, the husband “cannot make supper on a regular basis” even if he’s home earlier and it works better for them? Rather, he should sit at home waiting until she comes home at whatever time it is, put his feet up, and let her start cooking supper?
I honestly don’t understand your posts at all. Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship. It’s about two people working together, trying to give to each other, to create a good, solid family.May 31, 2010 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm in reply to: Have You Ever Googled Yourself? #686161

I agree with FrummyMcFrum. If weight is something that bothers you, it’s your responsibility to ask about it before going out. And there are ways you can ask so that it’s not done in a mean way.May 31, 2010 2:22 am at 2:22 am in reply to: Have You Ever Googled Yourself? #686150
I have, and since my last name is very uncommon, it’s quite interesting what comes up. In addition, if you ever try whitepages.com and put in your last name and zip code (if it’s not that uncommon a name) they will give you the approximate age of all the people they find. I found my parents, myself and my sister, and the age approximations were all correct.May 12, 2010 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm in reply to: How can we help people who need jobs? #684790
Tomche Shabbos of Rockland County is very involved in matching up people who need jobs with those who are looking for employees. I don’t know where you live, but you may want to send them an email at [email protected] to see if there’s anything they can match you up with.May 12, 2010 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm in reply to: Shavuos: Cheese-Cake Reason? #1156773
I’m with you on this one. Never touched a piece of cheesecake in my life.
But give me other dairy food… pizza, pasta ‘n cheese, ice cream… then you’ve got my mouth watering.May 12, 2010 3:18 am at 3:18 am in reply to: Cholov Stam #685182

Honestly, I know a family that eats chalav stam, and they don’t look up or down on anyone that doesn’t. They just eat it. I happen not to eat it. However, I don’t look up or down (or sideways, or anything else for that matter!) on anyone that does eat it. I think we just have to chill out a little and let everyone do what their local Rabbi tells them.May 12, 2010 2:47 am at 2:47 am in reply to: Cholov Stam #685177
“It is much better to eat cholov yisroel ONLY. Why do people still feel a need to eat cholov stam”
And why do people feel the need to put down those who eat chalav stam? You can eat what you want; let others eat what they want.
I think the problem here is more that one is looking down on the other rather than someone is eating chalav stam.May 7, 2010 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm in reply to: Hilarious School Pranks #1228886
I only got #s 1,8,9,10 & 12 right. I was ROTF when I read the questions! I guess it’s been a while since I read Wayside School -I’ll have to check it out again!May 6, 2010 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm in reply to: New Website, Posts being Closed, Feedback thread BROKEN #683996
I wanted to post on the original thread too, but the site didn’t let me post. I pretty much agree with what most people here are saying… I think the print is too small and the front page is too cluttered. The old design had a clean, spacious look. This one sort of hits you all at once with a lot of info and is hard on the eyes. And no, 654321, it’s not age related because I’m relatively young and I don’t like it. I also don’t like that it doesn’t tell you how many people commented on each story; I like to see that when I look at the story on the front page.
I do like, however, the link to the music ( I don’t know if it was on the previous front page but I never saw it).
yes….. i know what ‘sheba’al peh’ means. sorry for the confusion. but thanks for the clarification.
I agree with popa_bar_abba. I think many people view segulos as their guaranteed way to X, and when that (often enough) doesn’t occur, they feel slighted. I like oomis’s way of explaining it… it is the higher spiritual level one may achieve when going about the segulah that may make us more zoche to whatever it is we are hoping.
Whoever is modding this thread -you mentioned that there is a Torah basis to segulos. Where is it from?
You understand what “sheba’al peh” means, right?
It is mentioned, though, in the Seforim HaKedoshim.April 26, 2010 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm in reply to: Frum Economy #683611
unfortunately, i have heard people say that they will not take on frum customers because they are notorious for either not paying their bills, or making it so difficult to get the payment that it’s not worth the time and effort.
There are 2 amazing books out there by Rabbi Lawrence Kellerman, Permission to Believe and Permission to Receive. You may want to google them. Permission to Believe is a book which explains 4 rational approaches to the fact of G-ds existence, while Permission to Receive is 4 rational approaches to the Torah’s origin. It’s geared towards people who outright don’t believe, or who are struggling with emunah. It’s written on a very open, intellectual level. You may want to look into it and get them for her or read them with her. They are really awesome books.

I do understand what you’re saying. I guess I just have to work on myself more and just keep repeating that concept to myself.March 26, 2010 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm in reply to: Blood Drives, Giving Blood #1157703

You may not know this, but there is one restaurant in monsey (don’t know if anyone here knows monsey, but it’s in the Rockland Kosher Supermarket mall) where such a thing exists. There is actually a mechitzah down the middle; men on one side, women on the other. No jokes. Not really sure how a family would go out together to eat there.March 12, 2010 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm in reply to: Number of Participants in the Coffee Room #921529

I was 15 yrs old when one morning I was running to make the city bus to school, and was so focused on making that bus that I didn’t look as I ran across the street against the light. Unfortunately, a car was coming right then and it hit me dead on. B”H my injuries were not life threatening or permanent, but I did have to go through 6 weeks in a wheelchair, 4 months on crutches, and 2 years of physical therapy and learning how to walk properly again.

My uncle is on Hatzalah and unfortunately spends most of Purim on calls.. dragging stone dead drunk guys out of the street, or rushing people to the hospital because of cardiac arrest due to overdosing, or drink & drive car accidents.. people, its not worth itFebruary 16, 2010 2:34 am at 2:34 am in reply to: The Funniest Purim Costume #999705
I went out on a date once with a guy and we ended up talking about Purim costumes… when he proceeded to tell me that his friend had dressed up on Purim as – a toilet seat!! I was seriously ROTF!September 24, 2009 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm in reply to: An End To Accident Pictures #1021072
i guess what i’m saying is not to completely not react, but once you see what it is, i.e. a neighbor being taken out on a stretcher, don’t stay and watch. i’m not saying it’s an easy thing to do, because people are naturally curious, but it definitely can be done.September 24, 2009 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm in reply to: An End To Accident Pictures #1021070
Sorry, cherrybim, gotta disagree.. I know some hatzolah guys who couldn’t care less about the flashing lights and sirens but are there to save lives. And as for the ones that do care about it, that should be their worst problem!September 23, 2009 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm in reply to: Nursery Rhymes For Jews #885878
OMG ROTF you guys are so funny!!September 23, 2009 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm in reply to: An End To Accident Pictures #1021043
Similar idea… when your neighbor is being taken in by hatzolah because of some emergency situation, DON’T go outside to stare and watch the entire scene!! Believe me, the person being taken away on a stretcher feels bad enough and doesn’t need the whole neighborhood watching. In addition, many times they may not be properly dressed because it’s an emergency situation, and they don’t need to be more embarrassed by having everyone see them that way.September 23, 2009 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm in reply to: Nursery Rhymes For Jews #885874

coke has a lot of phosphorus in it. in your body, the relationship between phosphorus and calcium is that the more phosphorus you have, the less calcium (think of it as if it almost takes all the calcium for itself). so i’d make sure i’m getting enough calcium in my diet if youre going to drink a lot of that stuff.September 11, 2009 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm in reply to: September 11th #807141
