    It seems your suspicion is correct :)
    Nu? Was he a good landlord? Was his wife's cooking as good as he seems to think it is? Was he always hung up on Supreme Court justices, or is that a new development?

    You gotta come and try it (though I was just informed today by DW that we're going to Philly for Shabbos and taking along some of her world famous pareve cholent).
    I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

    And since we don't usually make kiddush before 2:30 or 3:00pm that's important year round for those that care for Pizza on מוצ״ש. I personally prefer my cholent Friday afternoon, or Shabbos morning before Davening and can even have it the way Shimon Dzigan has Golda serving it to Nixon  דעלישעס:D.

    Wow that's some feat (the ID part). I only have a suspicion of who you are (were you ever my tenant?)

    When you figure out about my persona, please let me know, or just come over for a farbrengen and we can try to figure it out together  :P
    I've never seen someone so excited to be identified in an online forum!
    I wonder now if I should tell all the people -who I figured out who they are- that I know them.
