Re: South Florida Master Thread
There's a small little joint that makes omelettes right near the places you mentioned. People often order breakfast to go. Name's on the tip of my tongue but it's not coming to me.
Found it on the wiki:

Café Vert (dairy breakfast, lunch, and dinner)

Re: בר הי הי
I was just learning the gemara in Chagiga, and came across this Yeshiva Boys Choir song. Never considered the words before, but isn't it a truly odd thing to sing about?
עבר הרגל ולא חג אינו חייב באחריותו ועל זה נאמר מעוות לא יוכל לתקון וחסרון לא יוכל להימנות:
א"ל בר הי הי להלל האי להימנות להמלאות מיבעי ליה אלא זה שמנוהו חביריו לדבר מצוה והוא לא נמנה עמהן
You'd be surprised how many songs are actually like this when focusing on what the words mean.

Re: בר הי הי
Here is another one that stems from am haratzus.

Amos 8,11

הִנֵּ֣ה | יָמִ֣ים בָּאִ֗ים נְאֻם֙ אֲדֹנָ֣י יֱהֹוִ֔ה וְהִשְׁלַחְתִּ֥י רָעָ֖ב בָּאָ֑רֶץ לֹֽא־רָעָ֚ב לַלֶּ֙חֶם֙ וְלֹֽא־צָמָ֣א לַמַּ֔יִם כִּ֣י אִם־לִשְׁמֹ֔עַ אֵ֖ת דִּבְרֵ֥י יְהֹוָֽה:

At first blush it seems to be a good thing. Days are coming when people will hunger for the word of Hashem.

But if you take a minute to look at the commentators, they state unanimously that this is a sad prophecy. Days are coming prophecy with go lost from the Jewish nation. If you read the following few verses, this is clearly the case.

It is akin to making a song on the words אֵיכָ֣ה | יָֽשְׁבָ֣ה בָדָ֗ד
If you are referring to the well known slow tune, there are many songs like that with sad lyrics.

I'm actually willing to bet that most songwriters do know very well what their lyrics mean.

It's many of the people that are going around singing the tunes that don't pay attention until someone asks them if they know what they're singing.

Re: בר הי הי
I was thinking about one from, I believe, Dedi.

But it just proves my point. Why are there so many tunes specifically to this verse that isn't even well known?

This passuk seems to have become well known due to the songs, which I believe is a result of singers thinking it means something entirely different than it really does. Sad
Agree but I still doubt it's ignorance. It's priorities. If it will make a catchy tune it's a home run, and if it's words that people have already become familiar with, they'll pick it up faster.

Re: boys non iron dress shirts.
Where can I get a quality, fashionable non-iron dress shirt for my 7-year-old son? I wear CT shirts and want something similar for him. Preferably cheaper than the adult version (3for100).

Thanks
I can't say they're much cheaper but A.I. Stone's "Clean" Shirts are awesome. Spill something on the fabric and it rolls right off! They make nice shirts: https://aistone.com/collections/boys
