Re: Random questions.
What's worse, prune filling or poppy filling?
Poppy. By a long shot.

Re: Life Hacks, Post Your Favorites! Save the plastic lids that come with Pringles and the like to reuse for:
  • covering cans of food that are not finished
  • a "plate" on which to put away half an onion/tomato
  • a cover for cups in the Sukkah

Re: Life Hacks, Post Your Favorites! For a house phone, if you want your number at the top so your kids can find it easily, put a space before your name.  So, for example, the first three listings on our phone are:

" Hatzolah"
" Mommy"
" Totty"

I also have Hatzolah listed last, so if someone presses up instead of down in an emergency, Hatzolah will still come up first.  I do this by having an open parenthesis first:  "(Hatzolah"

Re: What Do You Do For Kosher Food While Traveling?
Was not sure where to ask this so I will try here. Can the 48 Polar Bear cooler be carried on for a domestic (WN) flight? Is dry ice allowed in a carry on?

The problem with taking frozen food (I do it all the time, but with ice packs) is that it almost always gets pulled to be hand-checked.  I was told it's because it's dense.

Re: Oahu, HI Master Thread
I actually really like Oahu; there's tons to do. Get/borrow the Oahu Revealed book/app to see what interests you.  I've spent probably a couple weeks on Oahu, and could easily find another week's worth of stuff  to do, but I'm weird like that.

Lappert's is milchig, doesn't have real food, and Oahu Kosher is pretty much all fleishig.  Oahu Kosher needs to be delivered.  Also: traffic is a real thing on Oahu.  Airport to Waikiki when you are arriving is no joke, unless COVID-19 changes that.

Re: Oahu, HI Master Thread
i dont doubt there's lots to do, but since traveling from TBI we're really only looking for must do activities as opposed to spending a few days touring. it's why i assumed pearl harbor, as most other items i read about in TR seem similar to whats available on TBI.

how long do u think i need at pearl harbor/uss arizona?

planned on getting food for trip home and delivered by uber to airport.

when originally looked into PCC and Dole it didn't seem worthwhile, but with your recommendation i will revisit.
I've spent lots of time on the BI, and think that covers most things to do in Hawaii, but Oahu is different.  It's like Hawaii on steroids.  Hence, check out Oahu Revealed.  I've been to Pearl Harbor twice.  How long you spend depends on what you want to see/do.  Once we did the basics and were out in 2-3 hours, the other time we did almost everything.  If you do choose to do everything, you can spend an entire day there (7 hours). 

A lot of the shows at the PCC are extremely untzniusdik, but there is some interesting cultural stuff.

Re: Life Hacks, Post Your Favorites!
Before you go online, create a bot that automatically searches your web screen for "woman" and replaces it with "man". Then you will be able to read stuff again.
Or replace "man" with "woman" and you will just have to stay offline.

Re: Which US national parks have you been to? Which was your favorite?
For those that watch Kara and Nate, they were reported and fined for filming commercially in national parks. :( I was looking forward to their national park travels.
Win for them: "A federal judge has struck down as unconstitutional the National Park Service's practice of charging commercial filmmakers who want to shoot in the National Park System, ruling it is a protected activity under the First Amendment."

Re: The only one worth buying
Is there any packaged Chummos that doesn't taste too commercial?
Like for guac, homemade is the way to go.
I really like the Hope brand.  They have many flavors and premix them, which I like; it annoys me how Sabra does it.  I especially like Hope's Thai coconut curry chummus, but I am far from a chummus connoisseur.
