Re: Making Pesach For The First Time A stand kitchen mixer for cakes/baked goods (you could buy a cheap one like sunbeam dont need a heavy duty one like kitchenaid)

A food processor for kugels

Get new oven racks for pesach. If you self clean your oven and leave the racks in it will become harder to slide in and out of the oven.

On that note many ovens break if you self clean. Ask Rov if there is ways around this (500 for a few hours). If you have a double wall oven and need to self clean definitely do it at separate times (and open a window).

The St moritz oven spray is amazing but be CAREFUL. Can cause burns.

Get a sink insert if you have stainless steel sinks so doesnt scratch the sink

I have a small toaster oven and fridge that I use for chometz once we change over so the kids can eat (will prob change motzie shabbos before yom tov this year) and leave it in dining room

We are a family of 6 (2 adults 4 kids) and we used 7lbs of matzo last year. Last year there was no shabbos chol hamohed but we did have guests/family for a seder and other meals which probably (definitely?) wont happen this year. So I assume around 7lbs again. (Rather have too much then too little!)

A bottle of wine equals a bit more than all 4 cups. So a bottle of wine a person per night.

Definitely talk to your Rov regarding how to clean your kitchen (you might be a lot more machmir than you think).

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable)
Remember PPP is only for 2 months of payroll (forgiveness can only be used over an 8 week period)

So 2 months of expenses are paid for. So there can be an argument for reduced or stopped payments next 2 months.

The grant has pretty specific usage requirements which arenít clear as of yet, and it may be considered part of the financial aid packages schools already received. Itís not clear yet. PPP paid for 2 months of payroll and weíll see what the grant ends up covering.

You can certainly ask for help if you find yourself in a tough spot because of corona but donít expect to be allowed to stay in a school if you just stop paying tuition..

I agree that you cant just stop payments without having a conversation from the school. But I think the schools should realize the situation that a lot of the families are in and maybe give something back (and dont get me started on asking parents to pay for kosher tablets... schools should be paying for that completely).

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable)
They seem to be mutually exclusive because UI/PUA you have to get less than $504 income to be eligible (thats for NY, other states probably have similar provisions that you canít be employed/have income), and PPP requires you to pay yourself to get forgiveness.

Iíll go with what others have said, UI/PUA before PPP, 8 weeks of PPP, then back to UI/PUA.

Which is better would depend on how much youíd get from each, so might vary from person to person.

I wonder if they UI will spike after June 30th for a month till the PUA stops.

Its actually interesting that there is a month difference between the end of PUA and the end of the PPP. I wonder why they didn't end them at the same time
