Re: Carribean Islands (Which One?) Master Thread
Originally posted in Cancun master thread as directed, seems more appropriate here. Hope not a major forum violation (still new to this).

Looking for destination advice in the Caribbean Islands/Cancun area.
Important factors: Direct flight under 5 hours (only 3 day trip), nice but secluded beach area (couple is careful about tznius), water activities, good value, not too touristy, kosher products either available or can be brought in (not necessarily a restaurant), and other activities (i.e. rain forest/hiking, zip-lining or other).
Other advice: Resort stay or house/cottage rental, specific activities, and car rental or not.

Thanks in advance

St. Thomas has a lot of the things that you mentioned -- mostly on the other side of the island, away from where the cruise ships dock.

Re: Chabad Minhagim: Pros & Cons
For that you'll have to do more intense studying, the purpose of your creation should not be learned via forum imho

...perhaps it's the purpose of the DDF forum...  8)  to spread this knowledge and to elevate these items into Gdliness.

I thought it was to sell chocolate chips

.....haaa..... funny,
actual purpose of creation is for us to care for all Jews and to elevate the high-sourced sparks that are hidden in materialistic and mundane places.

So, yes, caring for Jews who need quality parve Belgian chocolate, plus to elevate the cocoa beans and make a bracha -- that's all part of elevating the mundane and materialistic.   ;)

Re: Rome Master Thread
That's Boccione.

+1   
We ate there. I just found a website about them (they don't have their own -- it's literally a corner shop), and I think that they told us that they have a dairy oven and a pareve oven.
Worth asking again, I suppose for pareve confirmation. It is a quick and simple culinary experience of eating fresh baked hot crunchy biscotti ends that seems to be a "must do" in Rome. At least once you taste them then if you really like them your wife can make more at home: http://katieparla.com/biscottini-in-romes-ghetto/

Re: Silent Killer
He tells a very different story than the above letter even though both are meant to be the perspective of the parents. One wonders it it's the same story.

it's possible that the second story about "yaffa" was another part of the story. i.e. the first day of school when she tried to attend the next school after she was kicked out of the first one.

I agree 100% about the concern of the influence of other children that could seep in via classmates, however this case was not including foul language, negative attitude, or intentional bullying or rebelling.

Re: Silent Killer
Never gonna happen because of the stigma. Shidduchim etc.

once we can treat a physical, chemical imbalance, or a predisposition to addiction with the same approach as a broken arm or sprained ankle that needs medical treatment, casting/wrapping/support/therapy/healing, and treatment plus prevention from future injuries, then all of Klal Yisroel can be more healthy and confident.

Keeping these conditions quiet and repressing them will only make shidduchim worse (if we can reach that age before becoming addicted or a victim), and can also harm and put at risk one's future children, family, and friends...

Re: Bingo wholesale club in Brooklyn
Just went to Bingo for the first time. Order total was 684. Exact same order in Moishe's was 812. Not a bad savings.

Also wide, clean aisles, friendly management, huge selection (of nosh), great produce, quick checkout, and decent amount of parking.   :)

Re: Law School
Early decision helps, just make sure you are happy with Penn, and won't be upset when Harvard calls you and you have to explain how you are already commited, like happened with someone I know.

A BTL can be a good thing, if you have a good story to go with it...

and if your recommendation letters are of best quality and well-written.

Re: Thomy Mayo in the US
Very well made! Big carts, large aisles and long registers. The prices are cheaper on most items and okay on others. I grabbed really nice tuna steaks for $7.99/lbs (usually pay $14.99, $11.99 on sale) and the "baby" salmon fillets were the same price.

yes, I purposely visited in early afternoon on a Tuesday and it was a pleasant experience with wide, clean aisles, helpful staff, great cut up fruits and vegetable prices and excellent shelf-stable products. In my opinion I would do all weekly shopping there if I was a resident, other than meat and chicken...

Re: Law School
I've heard the idea thrown around.  Maybe not.

I mean, what's the commute from Monsey to CLS? Longer than that.

monsey to CLS could be public transport, and you can daven/multitask, however if driving-in daily from Lakewood can be challenging.
