What about breathing, being alive and healthy?
That tops them all!October 10, 2012 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm in reply to: Drinking on Yom Tov #899198
Popa – that gives myself & my fellow kohanim a reason to drink but not anyone else… 🙂October 10, 2012 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm in reply to: Daf Yomi Shabbos Help #899219
dafhachaim.com is a great daf yomi tool, they have a intro shiur, daf shiur & five minute review shiur daily, with graph/pics on the side that make everything very clear
I just found this one as well, very good:May 30, 2012 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm in reply to: TMJ!!! OWWWWW!!! #1089241
Ask your dentist if he has training in using Botox for this issue, it will help relax those muscles and will take care of your problem better than anything else out there,April 2, 2012 2:09 am at 2:09 am in reply to: Friday in Geulah #865990
Yes to solve your problem, why not go shopping Thursday night?February 6, 2012 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm in reply to: YWN Radio and compatabilities #849660
On a PC just type: “wmplayer.exe http://22.214.171.124:8443” in the search box. – this no longer works – this is what it says once I hit enter:
Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted.
Any advice?January 25, 2012 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm in reply to: lack of menchlichkiet yeshiva administration #846799
While the timing of the event might not be a proper time (for you), I completely disagree with the notion that it is a lack of menchlichkeit & a lack of seichel on the school’s part. Maybe the school actually used some thought and that was the best time to make it. I would even say to not be so selfish that since its not going to work for you, that you just blame the school for its lack of menchlichkeit and seichel. Why not just call the school/teacher and see why the event is held when it is before jumping to a conclusion like the above. Nowadays, it almost seems easier to just go on a website and complain about something without even taking the time to see what the full story is.
Should we say mothers of kids are lacking seichel as well when they make a party in school for their kids and the fathers can’t come because they are working during the day? Or maybe its a lack when the school makes shacris for the kids at 7:30 when its better for me (as a father) at 7:15 so I can daven with my child.
Also, is it not worth a few unpaid hours to all mothers (and grandmothers) to see some nachas of your kids (gandkids).January 1, 2012 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm in reply to: YWN Radio and compatabilities #849658
Thanks DassYochid, will do – seems that using wm player stops it every now and then, Will work for a while (anywhere from 5 minutes to a few hours) and then stop. So I guess it is fine right now, but will try real player as well.December 29, 2011 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm in reply to: YWN Radio and compatabilities #849656

but what search box are you referring to?October 16, 2011 1:16 am at 1:16 am in reply to: Shnayim Mikra #817763
Do you feel the same about daf yomi or anything else that you have to learn twice? What about every shabbos, is that hard for you as well?July 20, 2009 3:20 am at 3:20 am in reply to: Opening Soda Cans on Shabbos: Mutar or Assur? #650610
Please see link below from Torah.org from Rabbi Neustadt who talks about it in his weekly Halacha sheet:
Hope this helpsApril 8, 2009 1:35 am at 1:35 am in reply to: Sfiras HaOmer – Remembering to Count #646040
set reminders on your cellphone through your calender and/or I think my zmanim has a text message service for this. Another idea is the ou sefirah reminder (do a google search on it).February 18, 2009 2:23 am at 2:23 am in reply to: What we do for Shidduchim #660687
sadly I know of such people, its really sadFebruary 17, 2009 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm in reply to: What we do for Shidduchim #660677
1) I know a son of a dentist who told me that a shaddchan once called him and ask for info on how the girls teeth were (know this is true) – this is crazy!! He tells them that not only are they being silly, its also private info between the doc and the patient
2) I know another person who was called as a reference and was asked what they ise on shabbos (paper, plastic or china.
Maybe if people would stop looking into such non-important things and wouild just focus on what is important, this whole “shidduch crisis” would not be around.February 11, 2009 4:30 am at 4:30 am in reply to: Funny Shidduch Stories #1226211
Have a great one for you guys. I heard this story from a friend of who it happened to. On the way home from a date, the boy says to the girl, if she doesn’t mind, can they pull over for a few minutes so he can close his eyes. He said he was travelling all day and was really tired and just needed a few minutes. She said no problem, I will wake you up in 5-10 minutes. They both woke up at around 5 or 6 am…
Not sure if they ever got married or not, but that’s a great story to share with your kids.February 10, 2009 12:45 am at 12:45 am in reply to: Legalizing Marijuana – Against Torah? #636777
Reb Moshe brings a few reasons why its assur. One is because its mekalkal the guf. ANother is that it makes you a non-bar daas and if one does any mitzvos at that time, he will not be mekayaim them. Another is being over not honoring your parents because they will have tzar from you doing this. He ends by saying that one needs to stay away from this and befrat people who learn in yeshiva.
This is just a bikitur, if one wants to see the whole thing, look it up or if someone else here wants, they can expound of this and also fix any mistakes, I might have made.February 9, 2009 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm in reply to: Legalizing Marijuana – Against Torah? #636772

anon for this:
I was thinking the same when I read this letter on Shabbos. This just helps to prove my point, lets see what kind of backlash comes from this letter a) in this thread and b) in the yated.
Thanks for posting the letter, wanted to do it myself, but have no idea how to do it w/o typing it up my self, how did you do that?January 19, 2009 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm in reply to: Is Your Play Dough Kosher #644272
To add on jphone, just clean up after playing with it or just don’t use it on the kitchen table.

asdfghjkl: I have some business there in the coming months, why you asking? You from there?January 13, 2009 3:32 am at 3:32 am in reply to: Fwdd Txts With Tehillim Names #631111
agreed, but as designing mentioned, if the person takes a turn for the worse, you will probably get another message. The problem is that everyone is quick to send these out for when they know someone who gets sick, but we never hear any updates. Is one just supposed to daven for them for the rest of time? There has to be some sort of cut off, for all one knows by the time you or me get the message, the situation could have changed for better or worse.
Also, you mention that you daven for them even if they get better, how do you know they have gotten better? And lets say you get a text that ploni ben ploni needs a refuah, then after two months of davening, he gets better (and you don’t know), now since you don’t know, you assume he is still sick and now you are daveing for a healthy person to have a refuah shelaima, and that is a not a good thing and possibly even an eyin hora.January 12, 2009 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm in reply to: Fwdd Txts With Tehillim Names #631107
I asked my Rosh Yehsivah a few years ago when this starting becoming a big thing. He told me if possible try to track down the origin and see about getting updates (this is almost impossible to do, he saud if this is not an option, then you should daven for the choleh for a week and the is enough. Hope this helpsDecember 29, 2008 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm in reply to: Zos Chanukah #1116281
Try being mekabel not touching your cell phone during davening, tried it and it has worked well. THe first few days were hard, but it gets easier and easier as the days go by.December 28, 2008 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm in reply to: BREAKING: Lipa to do another concert – “The Event”? #630122
Why is it when it comes to a concert everyone is jumping to wonder what the gedolim say and do as they say, but when it comes to things like the internet, smoking, tv, kosher phones only… people seem to turn a closed ear to what the rabonim have to say?December 18, 2008 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm in reply to: Should The CR Have Sports Threads? #831503
I agree with all those that say yes to a sports thread and also agree with those who say that a sports thread will not be anymore of a bitul zman than any of the other threads that are posted here.December 11, 2008 5:00 am at 5:00 am in reply to: Working = Rich? #634546
Noitallmr – not sure wht you are asking. I am stating that the general feeling I get from some people is that if you are working, it automaticaly makes you some sort of gvir and your richer than every single kollel/mechanech out there and that is simply not true, there are plenty of working people who are constantly struggeling to make a living as well.December 7, 2008 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm in reply to: Help With GPS #652547
Not sure about a model of gps that tells us to turn in .2 miles on main street, but the bluetooth is that you hook your phone up to it and then you can have your gps act as your phone and as a wireless speakerphoneDecember 7, 2008 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm in reply to: Working = Rich? #634528
Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining about not being happy with what I have, I am just trying to figure out why there is a perception out there of if you work, you must be loaded.

Never understood why people are more afraid of dorm’s than staying in town. If a boy wants to do something, he will find a way to do it, no matter where he is. Its all on who he hangs out with, and bad influences can be both in dorm’s and around in town yeshivos as well.September 26, 2008 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm in reply to: Please say Tehillim! #693027

I really don’t see what the big deal is, if you see the email from YWN and it’s a advertisement from a sponsor, just delete it, how long does that take? That is what I do when I get them, it takes a few seconds to do and then I go on with the rest of my day. And yes deleting it from your phone, also takes a few seconds and I don’t even have to open it and than you won’t waste any kilobytes, like someone said above with that concern about getting these emails.
So YWN keep sending them to me, as I see no problem in you trying to make your source of parnassah greater.September 19, 2008 3:40 am at 3:40 am in reply to: Can’t Get Out of Bed in The Morning… #683529
