I may be staying in St. Louis near the convention center for a few days including Shabbat.  Are there any kosher food places near there and any shuls within walking distance.  Also what is the best ihg hotel near the convention center?

My daughter who lives in Israel with only an Israeli license just rented a car in California and turned down the supplemental liability insurance.  She should really have taken it. It is a three day rental.  Can she call the company to add it now or pick it up somewhere else from the internet.  She slready took the car from enterprise.  She has no other cc protection.  She did take the damage waiver.

General Discussion / Looking for best place to sell baseball cards
« on: September 13, 2018, 11:56:42 PM »
I have a shoebox full of baseball cards from the 1950ís to 70ís.  No idea of their value but I would like to sell them. What is the best way to sell them and does anyone have a recommendation on an auction house or other ways to sell them for a reasonable price, I dont want to get ripped off by an unscrupulous dealer.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Deals/Deal Requests / Deals on 220 volt items
« on: July 29, 2018, 03:09:14 AM »
Since there are many DD readers in Israel it would be beneficial to have a place where people can list deals on electronics that are 220v or other items that can be  bought or used here.  Any thoughts?

I am looking for a review of the Mano cruises out of Haifa from anyone who has recently been on one of their cruises.  They list rooms as standard, standard plus, premium, and premium plus if anyone knows the difference.  Can anyone recommend any of their shore excursions?  Are drinks included?  What do they nickel and dime you for?

Trip Reports / Kabrams1618's Helsinki TR
« on: July 05, 2018, 01:08:24 AM »
We just came back from a nice three day trip to Helsinki.  Before going we  checked throughout the  DDF site and there was little to no information on this city.  Since there is information on just about any tourist place known to man on the site, we were a little worried what was wrong  with Helsinki.  Well we had a great time there and I will write a TR as soon as I get some sleep.
Why the lack of information? 

General Discussion / Kosher food on pullmantur cruises

Have anyone been on a pullmantur cruise in Europe.  Their website states kosher food is available with six weeks notice.  Any reviews or feedback?

We really enjoyed a carribbean cruise out of Miami.  Since we are living in Israel we dont want to make the flight to go again but looking for a similar cruise experience closer to home, possibly in Europe.  Not interested in a mano cruise.  Maybe Norweigian.  Looking for anything close to inexpensive carribbean cruise that has beach/ island experiences for the kids and kosher food (not a kosher cruise).  Any suggestions?

Looking for a nice, not expensive wedding hall between Bet Shemesh and Jerusalem.  Hall must use 100%  Jewish workers.  Some family is Hareidi.  If anyone has had positive personal experience I would appreciate information including a basic idea of cost per person.

General Discussion / Purchasing duty free with a stop over

If one is traveling from tel aviv to philly with a stopover in Germany, can they purchase a bottle of wine in tel aviv duty free and take it through the German airport stopover?  As a follow up, can you buy a bottle on wine, non duty free in Israel and take it through the German airport on the way to the us.

Just Shmooze / How to make your knitted kippa round again
« on: October 30, 2017, 02:56:39 AM »
Okay, I bought a new knitted kippa that was round enough to fit on my head nicely.  Several months later the kippa is now totally flat.  How do I get the kippa back to the original round shape and keep this shape?

On The Road / U.S. car rentals for non residents
« on: May 21, 2017, 11:24:47 PM »
Although a U.S. citizen I am not a resident of the U.S. nor do I have a U.S. driver's license.  However, I have a U.S. credit card.  Am I eligible for the lower non resident rates both for the car rental and for the insurance (I will need to purchase full insurance).  Which major company do you recommend?

The EU labeling of Israeli products from Yehuda and Shomron is the first step toward a total boycott first from the heart of Eretz Yisrael and then from all of the country.  We can turn this evil decree on it's head by supporting and buying products from these areas.  Please list stores and products that can be purchased to support these areas.  If you are an owner of a store that sells these products, please list them and any deals that you are offering.  If this site can list a deal for a materialistic item that can then be sold out in minutes, just think what this site can do for truly a great "deal" by supporting people and companies that after 2000 years have come back to our holy cities of Hevron, Shilo, Bet El etc.  I think that a great positive impact can be made, the best deal you may ever receive.
