I once brought in five pants to my dry cleaners and he told me that four of them could be washed safely at home. They were all wool pants.
In Israel? Which place here would tell you how you can save money by not giving it to them to clean?
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

Bistro de Carmel in Carmel Winery has dropped their Mehadrin certification some time ago.

This was one of the finest Mehadrin restaurants in the holy land, in one of the most picturesque areas - Zichron Yaakov :( .

Doesn't that technically make him your cousin? ;)

;) Yes...technically
I thought about just saying he's my cousin but she's my second cousin once removed or something like that and we're not that close and I figured I'd preempt any eventual questions by writing it the way I did. Feel better now? :D
