Exactly. Meant to specify. So - Shloshes Ymei Hagballah starts on Sunday, so 1) can we shave on Friday when shloshes ymei hagballah starts in Sunday. 2) Does Rosh Chodesh change anything?

The question isn't about a Kohen obviously, right?

Right, I was wondering if the 'pagan ritual ground' is a problem?

If pagan was an issue we wouldn't do schlissel challa (and plenty of other things).

I bought one of these big bags of kettle cooked popcorn from the stand in hershypark, now before leaving I asked where's the hechsher so he showed me the window (as I knew from the previous years that it was kosher)
 The sign which has the signature of the rav who is the Mashgiach is dated back from 2016, so I asked him that question and now he's telling me that they didn't have a minute to change the sign (which I would take as they have no hechsher, what was funny he was telling me before all this the rabbi came and blessed all the machines so it's all kosher. ;))

 Would you eat it before contacting the Mashgiach?

Based on the certificate it seems to be for popcorn popped in the park

Besides for the sfeikos about the kashrus status, by accepting the vendor's word for it, you might imply to him that it's easy to fool the kosher consumer, as the consumer will just take his word.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That's why I went back and asked why the sign shows 2016 and your telling me the rabbi came today, I will definitely ask to see the sign tom.

An ice cream vendor which sells in their machine only soft serve ice cream, yes they sell other non kosher items in the store, but 2-3 machines designed for soft serve ice cream, can I assume these machines are used for that and nothing else? 
 This is the sign they showed me, after I asked if they have a certificate, (the cones, I saw in a box with a chof k where they were opening to take out of).
 About the ice cream would you guys eat it? (those who eat ou-d)?
