I believe he's saying last years run tasted the same as this years run. (Not that he had last years run this year)
Ah, thanks for clarifying!

The get a taste of redemption (fist box in the 1sr lt picture) had a lot of burnt matzah. Redemption, geula and elite matzah all in the first picture is from Ukraine, tastes great and also if stored properly will be fine for next year.
I had Lakewood, but I didn't have any of the others, so I can't compare.

I thought Lakewood this year was pretty good. It doesn't compare to the taste I've gotten used to from Satmar Broadway in past years, but it's pretty solid, and didn't have any major issues with burned matzo. Didn't have tons of Shleimim, but more than enough for my Yom Tov meals.

My batch of Lakewood from last year was pretty stale, and even putting in the oven didn't fully restore it. But it's possible it was just the way I stored it.
Am I the only one who prefers burnt matzo?

Don't know if it's true but someone was claiming to me that not all of Lakewood hand matzah is baked locally. Taste is different, but can't tell from the packaging where it was baked.

Mine was Chaburah which I baked myself at the bakery

They say that burned matza is good for something but I can't remember what.

I guess you should've had more of the burnt matzah.

Any recommendations for someone inexpensive to retile a hallway (225 sq ft)? A lot of the porcelain tiles are cracked and I can’t find tiles to match.

Out of curiosity, why do you write “burned matzo” as opposed to “burnt”? I know both are technically correct but most people use the term “burnt”.

I was conflating it with this, even though it's not the same:
-I think the word is "learned," not "learnt,"

It’s good for machmirim because it means that it was for sure fully baked. If it’s not fully baked then it can still become chometz when it comes out of the oven.

My boss says t is British and ed is American. Don't have a source, but the publishing house I work for uses American usage and gets a lot of British writes, so I have to change this a lot. Seems mostly accurate except for when I get unsophisticated writers (they use BOTH).

Does it say which project you are allocated to? How many months has it been? It may take a while from when you are activated until you see it on your bill.

Example:
1/1 - Project goes online
1/25- Your meter is read and your allocation is now active
2/25 Your next meter reading
3/1 Next bill generated finally showing the savings a full 2 months after the project went online

From my experience, I waited 6+ months and never got assigned to a farm. I realized that they were giving priority to people who had "pull". So I cancelled my account and re-signed up using one of those people. (Though I'm still waiting.)

I’ve been assigned a farm for 4 months now, still not getting my discount!
It’s really starting to look like a scam.
