Bump

How do you know that he will read it on Shabbos? Is this a past experience thing?

Also, are there people in the group who are in your timezone or not Jewish?

Yes.
Yes. Yes.

So if I understand correctly, you want to know whether you can post to a group where some people have no halachic problem responding because either its not Shabbos or they are not Jewish, but one person in the group may answer when it is Shabbos for him?

Where is the source for שני כיסויים when making brochos ?
קיצור שו"ע סימן מד ס"ו
ו. לא יברך מעומד, ולא מהלך, אלא מיושב, ואפילו היה הולך בתוך ביתו כשאכל או שהיה עומד או מסיב, כשצריך לברך צריך לישב כדי לכוין דעתו ביותר. וגם לא יהא מיסב שהוא דרך גאוה, אלא ישב. וילבש מלבוש העליון, וגם יניח הכובע בראשו, שיהא מורא שמים עליו ויעורר הכונה. ויברך באימה וביראה, ולא יעשה שום דבר בשעה שהוא מברך.

משנה ברורב סימן קפג ס"ק יא
כתב המ"א בשם הב"ח ירא שמים לא יברך במצנפת רק ישים הכובע על ראשו ויש שנוהגין ג"כ להתעטף בבגד העליון דכל זה הוא בכלל עיטוף הנאמר בגמרא אצל כוס ברכה וכן נהגו כהיום בישראל בעת בהמ"ז שמשימין הכובע על ראשיהן אפילו כשהוא מברך ביחיד בלי כוס:

משנה ברורב סימן צא ס"ק  יב
ובזמנינו צריך להשים בעת התפלה כובע בראשו כדרך שהולך ברחוב ולא בכובע הקטן שתחת הכובע כי אין דרך לעמוד כן לפני אנשים חשובים וכ"ש שלאף מיץ.

Harav Chaim Sholom Deitch  (Yerushalayim) told me that using ones arm/hand on his head for shemone esrei is a busha, and no respectable person would talk to a king like that.
He also disapproved of doing so for regular berachos, though not to the same degree

Am wondering if cake that is made with gluten oat flour would still be mezonos.

It still is one of the five grains, but is there any halachic significance that the gluten has been removed?

I guess part of the question should also be a nutritionist as to whether it is less sustaining if there is no gluten.

Pure oats ARE gluten-free.  Gluten in oats is from cross-contamination.

Thanks! I had no idea.

So why is it that people with celiac dont just have oat flour challah instead of being yotsei with someone else?
