Best relatively cheap (or cheap) grill, medium-sized, for a back porch?


Pellet grilling is more expensive but the flavor is incredible. Every chicken comes out so moist and delicious with very little effort.

Because our assemblypeople are an outspoken anti-semite and a self-hating Jew and they try to hurt us at every corner.

The state formula needs to be changed to cater to the unique needs of Rockland County, but they won't lift a finger.

Thank God, the people who they represent and one of them were utterly humiliated in the primaries this week.

Also, a few of the villages have ridiculous debt to pay off because they had and lost RLUIPA suits that cost them millions and they need to pay it off, and we end up paying, because we live there. They fought it (except Chestnut Ridge that got sechel) because they're vile anti-semites.

The rhetoric among some of them wouldn't embarrass the Nazis of the 1930s.

Here you have a sitting Republican Rockland County legislator, one day ago on Facebook.

Jaw dropping...

On The Road / Re: Car2go Master thread

So I get an email from car2go saying I used there services a year ago and I owe them $61. I have now recollection but it is possible. The cc they have doesnt work. They are obviously threatening to send to collection agency. I just asked for the trip details (time, route) and a picture of the driver. WTH though, if you are sleeping for a whole year, do i still need to pay up? Can they actually harm my credit with such a small $?

+1. This makes more sense than FMV comparison from location to location.

Not to mention the inflated buble your FMV lives in. Note the pun...

Why Arkansas? Go to a PA suburb. You'll save 10k.

If I didnt need to commute to NYC I would pick a place that gets more sun. and less harsh of a winter.

$11,750 - $16,387

What a bummer! How is anyone able to retire with such a commitment on top of maintenance and other expenses.

Rocland includes airmount pomona ext. And taxes vary drastically.

Being that there are so many Yidden who dont send to public schools why dont they petition to change the taxes? sue the county? IDK.

It's part of Monsey. Being in Rockland County means it has insanely high taxes. The closest state with lower taxes is probably PA.

Thanks for your response. I was told it has to do with the schools, and therefore varies between neighborhoods (?). Whats the average taxes in monsey for a home btw 5-700K

The rates intandem with the 10 treasury. The rates could likewise go up without having to inform you.

Hey there. Does anyone anything about montebello? It seems like it is just across the street from monsey (walkable to shuls). Are the Frum people living there? how do the taxes compare to neighboring communities? I am looking in the area because I Cant stand Brooklyn.

I would love to know if you know about any Chabad communities in that area with low taxes.

Just like (from what it seems to me) they don't seem to get it that their biggest asset are their customers.

There is something about the Israeli mentality/pride that seems to lead them to think that customers should be thankful to them for the opportunity to fly under an Israeli flag, with ex-IDF pilots (who Israeli culture saw at the crème de la crème of Israeli society, let alone mankind). And while they might pay lip service and thank people for flying ELAL, from what I've seen it doesn't project in their actions (and definitely not in their crisis management). Just take their arrogant PR stance in conditioning an interview on review and approval prior to publication, and not bothering to even respond to a media outlet that is focused on air-travel with a huge contingency of people that travel regularly to Israel. Now tell me, what do they get?

Now take a step back and try to understand it from their perspective.

I am not saying I get it, but I am seeing pretty clearly a one sided perspective coming from you.

They are a huge entity who has been around for many decades, yes they fall short on some metrics in comparison with their american counterparts, but they part of a different culture and society were things might ad up differently. I would imagine they barely even consider DL,UA their competition as they are just overlapping in north America.  I would also imagine the DD caters to a very small portion of their customer base, globally speaking- a portion they may not be so excited to have, unfortunately.

Credit Cards / Re: Points/Miles Values NO BUYING/SELLING ALLOWED

That is extremely undervalued considering Israel redemptions. I am tempted to buy now just to sell it back at 1.3 in 2 months.
