Aside from the usual divrei torah, treats, and stories, which are great, there are always those hands on touches that make the seder that much more exciting. Itís kind of like years ago when the schools used to load the kids with information, and then the really great rabbeim started utilizing hands on demonstration techniques and the kids experienced the lessons rather than just hearing them. The difference is night and day.

One friend puts up a giant poster of the pyramids surrounded by endless dessert to bring home what mitzrayim was like. Another has all sorts of representations of the esser makos on display as well as acting out. Some people march around with bags of matzos as if they are leaving mitzrayim. What special touches do you use to  make the Seder come alive for your kids?

Deals/Deal Requests / Dozen large eggs 50 cents at Target

A bit late for pesach, but still an amazing price considering that a dozen extra large eggs are going for around $3 in the stores.


Craftsman or Yard Machines snowblower (same item). Just received mine but looks like it's no longer available for shipping. When I signed up for SYW rewards it gave me an extra $11 bonus rewards bringing the total down to $247 after $22.80 SYW rewards. Plenty of in store pickup options around me for each model. It's not a 2- stage snow blower but for under $250 still a pretty good deal. My electric Toro snow blower from the Amazon deal a few years back just went. The slush by the edge of the driveway from the plow was too much for it and the engine fried. The gas one seems to be a little more suited to the task....

Just Shmooze / Uber vs Lyft
« on: January 08, 2018, 03:24:38 PM »
Iím sure itís YMMV by locale but Iíve recently found myself using Lyft rather than Uber. Iíll often find here in Lakewood that for some reason at the time that I am looking for a ride Uber is on surge pricing schedule, charging almost double the price that Lyft is asking. On a recent trip to Miami it seemed that Uber had trouble pinpointing my pickup location at the exact terminal at the Airport. Lyft pinpointed it.  I had to cancel an Uber that seemed to be going in circles trying to find my pickup point at the hotel while Lyft came without an issue. On the way back from Miami to FLL Uber wanted $120 due to surge pricing (holiday season)!!! I took a Lyft for $36. Perhaps I was just unlucky and my experience was not representative of the typical riders. Have others had similar experiences?

I installed IOS 10 on my iPhone and Siri and dictation  stopped working when I'm on cellular data, they only seem to work when I'm on wifi. I tried all the standard stuff like toggling Siri on and off resetting network settings , enabling hey Siri, soft reset etc. Has anyone had a similar issue? Any ideas short of a full restore?
