If I can just add to #1.

You take an Uber when you need to get to a certain destination. When you have a car you just go.

Wow...imagine a human being might want to spontaneously just go out...that does sound dangerous to the kehilla! 

And Dan is so correct, as a woman, itís way less tznius to be riding in cars with strange men all the time.  Even if itís not halachicaly Yichud, I often feel uncomfortable in Uberís and taxis alone.  People can justify and give apologetics all day long but ultimately itís about control and fear and everyone knows it (both those on the inside and outside).  As Jews, exerting self-control and following halachic standards is who we are but letís be honest about what this rule does to exert control within communities. I want to make my home my heart and joy where I focus my energies but that is different than being limited from leaving it when I want or need to.

6 hours with a 7-year old girl in January. ORD or STL? Don't need food.

I know you said you donít need food but Shallots is SO good and it made our layover (and then flight to Israel) SO much nicer and all my kids loved the food. Donít know if 6 hours is enough but Iíve always wanted to take my kids to the Field museum in Chicago on a long layover, although we ended up just going to Shallots instead!  :)

Basic yiddish..
He seems to be talking about the value of hiring anyone that is an expert in their field, like real estate etc. - I'm questioning if there is really an expertise here that's worth $4,500 - $6,000 per $100,000 or it's something that anyone can pretty much do by inflating their income..

You can do this yourself and all the offers only charge a flat 3%...I get these ďchecksĒ in the mail all the time for large amounts (because Iím well qualified and do have good credit)...remember some of these cards back date the full interest of you donít pay the balance in full by the end of the 6 months or a year.

Favorite European vacations for a week in May? Currently considering Ireland, Amsterdam to Paris or Switzerland.

I've been to Italy, Greece, Germany and England so anything but those.

Prague?

Is zika still a problem in panama city?

Actually was Zika ever a problem in Panama city?  The maps show it in Darien on the Columbian border in the jungle.  Anyone whose been can tell you there are very few mosquitos in Panama city itself because of the constant breezes off the water (and I assume spraying)...

Thank you!

Can I book the room with the King size bed, and then call in to change, Because putting in 2 beds is coming out much more expensive.
1 More question, Can a weekend night be booked for in middle of the week?

Yes to beds and no to using certs during the week.

TK has saver space that sometimes shows only on their own website as well as Asian partners (such as ANA, SQ, etc.) that doesn't show up on European and American partners.

Just FYI, they often have 4-6 Business class seats to TLV out of ORD, BOS and Atlanta. I just booked J seats for Sukkot for my family. I know most of you are in NYC but lots of others arenít so make sure to check those cities. Only 104k RT PP from ANA in J  and yes some fees but so few points and enough seats for my whole family over Sukkot that it was a no-brainer for me. :)

No need for a cert. The Ritz now offers free nights for opponents of the state.

True!  ;D

I thought it would, as I have been using lifemiles to book TK in J quite a few times, and I always found some flights that sometimes do not show on UA.

Do you all search also with ANA?  I always see lots on there that isn't on UA website.
