Caveat that the free 2 month trial subscription automatically converts to a regular monthly subscription charged to your credit card unless canceled. Have not yet read the the fine print as to whether such cancellation effects to the 1000 bonus miles.

Excellent posts and ideas. I like both, the website combined with individual complaints sent with a cc copy to the website.

Best Brooklyn restaurant other than the loft, unimpressed with Bison?

Bordeaux is excellent

So... nobody really knows for sure..., or itís a secret 😀
Iíll ask my LOR when I get back home and will bli neder try to post back here again.

I was discussing this topic on Shabbos with several people, including some in the Glatt Kosher meat business, and none seemed sure or in agreement as to the distinction between the three standards. Then, after Shabbos I posted the topic under the general category of Just Shmooze. I have since found the article below. When I return from my current MB vacation I will also ask my LOR.

1) Glatt no scabs at all
2) kosher, has some scabs,but these have been skillfully analyzed and tested to ascertain that they do not render the cow traif
3) Glatt Beis Yosef, means same as number 1, just restricted to less areas of the lungs that would be problematic according to ramo.
Thanks for the only response on point so far. It differs from what I thought in the OP.

Ohkay. Didn't sound like the guy wanted to become a bodek based on any answers here.
Just a basic idea.

So, in other words, you guys donít really know whether my simplified description of the difference between the 3 levels of shechita kashrus is correct or not. Or itís an inside elitist secret that the general public who have not studied all those authorities cited are not worthy of knowing.

What exactly is the difference between each of them as it relates specifically to the post-Shechita examination of the animalís lungs? I think that Bais Yosef insists that the lungs be completely smooth with no possibility of a hole which would render the animal Trief; Glatt Kosher is ok with a scab on the lungs so long as it is removed and then no hole is found; and Kosher is also ok with a scab without  trying to remove it. Is that correct?

Just Shmooze / Is swimming permitted on Taanis Esther?

Is it Halachically permitted to go swimming on Taanis Esther? Is it permitted to receive a professional massage on Taanis Esther? Reason for this fast is not aveilus for Bais HaMikdash, so I understand that showering and listening to music is ok.

I do want to make custom.

I want to take advantage of the fact that I have a significant amount of time to take in as much of the area as I can, if that means HKI, Macau and Shenzhen I'll do that. If that won't take a full two weeks maybe I'd go to Singapore or Shanghai in the middle...

Truth I don't know much at all about the far east so I'm looking for ideas.

ETA: I'm not even that hooked on HKG, I would consider using it as a stop and going somewhere else for most of the trip.
You can definitely spend 2 great weeks in Asia. Read the threads here on the locations you mentioned, and the trip reports, and try to narrow down what appeals most to you, and fits within your budget or permits use of any miles/points you may have to redeem.

-1 too much fun to sleep
For the novice. But, having been there and done that enough, one comes to realize that, in reality, you are confined to a seat that becomes a bed that is nowhere near as comfortable as your real bed at home, admit it, while you are being served what is essentially kosher airplane food, which even if  premium quality is still no better that what you can readily procure, and likely prefer, on terra firma. Plus you still have to use a ridiculously tiny bathroom which has been shared by many similarly confined J or F strangers. If you stay awake, you can watch movies in that same seat/bed that, as a chair, is not nearly as comfortable as your sofa or easy chair at home, admit it, on a small screen low definition TV, and arrive at your destination groggy and bleary eyed. Where is the too much fun exactly?
