Deals/Deal Requests / Re: Visible 2 Months Of Service Get $100 GC! (BYOD)

Sorry it was on the other thread

Thanks, but I'm not getting it. I put the sim card from an active Visible phone into an unlocked phone (Samsung s10 lite) and it didn't work. Is there a place on the website to say I'm changing phones and use an iphone ime?

From a 2006 post on BeyondBT:
Does anyone know what recording this might have been?

Maybe Dance with Chen 3? Second track?

Trivia: The composer of this song only has 1 other recorded composition which is a very famous song. Who is he and what is the song?

Shlomo Zolty, Vahaviosim (Toronto Pirchei)

Speaking of JEP, he used the song "Like an Ocean" from JEP vol. 1.

That was originally "Es Tzemach", on a Mark III Orchestra record.

Ohr Chodosh vol. 1, on which Shmelkie's Niggun is featured, was first released in 1971. However, in Marvelous Middos 3, Shnookie Schapiro goes back in time to 1968, three years before Ohr Chodosh's release, and Shmelkie's Niggun is playing at a chasunah.

The song was popular in yeshiva and possibly on the wedding scene before the album was recorded, so it wouldn't have been impossible. I'm not sure when it was composed though.

Is “all I want is a dreidel that will win win win” from The Incredible Dreidel of Feitel Von zeidel an original composition? If not what are the original words?

Eitz Chaim, first recorded afaik on a Camp Kol Rina record, and subsequently on The Chevra (Sheya Mendlowitz production).

They carry a very limited number of brands, so if demand is for one they don't carry, they might switch. For example, they are currently carrying Shemesh and Ko-Sure cheese, and Bodek frozen produce; they might be able to be convinced to change to NK and Pos-Tiv.

They might also expand or contract a department according to demand.

Sure, Brach's carried name brands, plus some Super A products. Of course their selection was bigger; the store size was double.

The point is, there is now a low cost option, and if  you must have some products with name brands, those are still available elsewhere.

The prices were good, but as noted, they don't carry the same items in many brands.

It's very different than GG. It's much more price friendly and no-frills.

It has a bit of a Costco feel, but it's really very different. Much more of a selection of product (just not of specific brands) and you generally don't need to buy in the same quantity as you do in Costco (I didn't notice the cereal as I don't usually buy cereal in kosher stores anyhow.

Overall, I would say that it would seem to very much fill the void left when Brach's closed.

I can only speak for myself and the people I know that shop there but not a single person I have spoken to even knew that GG had "the top bug checker."

If there are restaurants and stores that are paying GG to check their produce then why cant Rabbi Green continue to do that and have no affiliation with GG? What did GG bring to the table?
I didn't know, until I read this, that he left, but I was quite aware of his effectiveness.

I'll probably stick to Pos-Tiv now.

Through the browser
What's the difference between using the extension and using the browser? I get to my uploaded Google Play music on my PC through.play.google.com. Is there another way?

You see a distinction between selling flowers to a gay person say for Valentines Day and selling them flowers for his wedding. I don't. Agree or disagree it is pretty simple and straightforward what I am saying.
I think I see what you are saying. You would see a difference between selling flowers to a gay person who is buying them for his mother and selling them for him to give to his boyfriend, but don't see the difference between selling them to him to give to his boyfriend or for his wedding.

There actually are differences, but it's not important what they are; what's important is that the government keep its nose out of deciding which parts of religion it understands and which parts it doesn't.

When done through the Google music app or extension it is unlimited.
What other way is there to download it? Also, doesn't downloading through the app only allow you to listen on Google Play?

I am not sure why they would ever do that. Its just undercutting their current business
Not necessarily, if they don't have some of the amenities they have at the current locations.
