We're having a heat wave here in CT
8:14 am

8:15 am
hokie carla

8:15 am
saanichcat

oh welki that is miserable, are you warm enough
8:16 am
saanichcat

looks like carla is in the right zone!
8:16 am
MollyL

All you warm temperature US kids keep chanting "mild winter, mild winter, mild winter".
8:17 am
welki

yes, saanich, and grateful for it. winds are kicking up and more snow is expected. glad we don't have to go anywhere today
8:18 am
saanichcat

ooh that is miserable and fingers crossed your power stays on
8:18 am
welki

heh, we were on the list for a scheduled power outage this afternoon, but the electric company cancelled it
8:19 am
origami

They would have to be sadists to go forward with it in that weather.
8:19 am
welki

it's been that kind of week, ori - water had to be shut off for pipe repairs tuesday and wednesday
8:21 am
saanichcat

I hope you will be fixed up for the winter welki, I hear it's supposed to be a cold one
8:22 am

8:27 am
mael

it's going to be 60 degrees here, probably break some records. Sigh.
8:33 am
MollyL

Sigh? You would prefer cold?
8:34 am
bichon

Cold means normal for December
8:34 am
saanichcat

it's easier to warm up than cool down I find
8:35 am
MollyL

I am just fine with any weather that does not require a coat.
8:41 am
hokie carla

I would be fine living in 72F weather year round
8:42 am
hokie carla

and when I was a teenager I used to tell my mom I was moving to Alaska. my, how times have changed.
8:42 am
MollyL

For me, the older I have gotten, the less cold has appealed to me.
8:44 am
mael

I'd prefer the temperatures to be seasonal
8:45 am
mael

which here in MA is cold in December
8:46 am
MollyL

Oh, you are in Massachusetts. Y'all like it cold with two feet of snow.
😊😊
8:46 am
mael

I certainly do!
8:46 am
mael

we have had no snow at all this year
8:47 am
MollyL

Do you have to shovel when it snows, or does someone do it for you? I find that makes a difference in those who like snow and those who don't.
8:53 am
mael

I shovel
8:53 am
mael

and have a 1/4 mile driveway to plough
8:54 am
mael

but I much prefer dealing with snow than dealing with a cold, dreary, brown, wet winter without snow
8:54 am
mael

nevermind the climate implications
8:57 am
mael

and, to be honest, if I never wanted to deal with snow I wouldn't live in the northeast :)
8:58 am
BzznBea

I'm a no snow person.
8:58 am
hokie carla

I'd rather have snow than no snow if it's going to be cold.
9:00 am
mael

precisely hokie
9:01 am
hokie carla

but I'd also rather be in 72F year round 😁
9:01 am
mael

but I'd also rather not above average temps months after month, given the givens
9:01 am
BzznBea

No 10's called last night. Interesting.
9:02 am
hokie carla

wow, and there are 5!
9:02 am
hokie carla

that is interesting indeed
9:02 am
mael

I still haven't found any
9:03 am
hokie carla

I haven't even found a 7, but I still have 308 left.
9:03 am
hokie carla

I'm hung up trying to get half on these stupid 2nd row E's
9:03 am
dromano66

9:04 am
mael

9:04 am
ursh

9:05 am
BzznBea

The 10's I have end with the plural suffix meaning quality or state.
9:05 am
mael

wow, that is twisted!
9:05 am
hokie carla

I have 2 snooty ones and duck related
9:05 am
mael

9:05 am
hokie carla

9:05 am
mael

9:06 am
BzznBea

That was my 4th 10...
9:06 am
hokie carla

9:06 am
MollyL

Snooty to the third power
9:07 am
hokie carla

9:07 am
mael

one who is, hokie
9:08 am
MollyL

You are close Carla
9:08 am
hokie carla

well, I swear I tried that before I made up the other one and it didn't take
9:09 am
MollyL

She swears
9:09 am
hokie carla

definitely
9:11 am
mael

there's also one that is most fishy
9:11 am
hokie carla

see, I would never try that kind of BS. thanks.

A lot of second generation Jews liked to break with tradition. Again you get the confident Jew Fran Drescher loving her shrimp (not Mr Sheffield). There is also pleasure in the forbidden.

I had friends who were observant; wouldn't eat at my house even if I served kosher everything, because my pots and pans weren't designated for meat and/or dairy.

My nephew has 5 kids and a lot of relatives. He is the only fundamentalist and Republican in my family of origin, and some things we don't talk about.

The other basic is not mixing meat and dairy, so you hear orthodox kids saying that their last wish is to have a cheeseburger. I would go for the world peace and lose 10 pounds direction myself.

I used to think the Catholic no meat on Friday thing was weird until I heard what Kosher Jews go through.

Bichon, my modern mother really fought kosher, because she was raised in an anti-religious, socialist household (it's complicated) but my father said the smell of bacon made him nauseated.

My brother was a rabbi and had a job once as the kosher-checker, or mashkiach. If that word comes up on Babble, remember it.

11:36 am

My brother became a rabbi and it was obnoxious for everyone until my mother bought in to separate dishes. I have in my life been very observant, and not observant at all, but have a lifetime of experience with different groups. The only group of Jews that feels foreign to me is Reform. They were largely German Jews in America, and their first official dinner served tree, that is tr4, deliberately.

The other thing I am most humbled by is that the community (Catholic Charities, the Jewish Community relations council has sponsored a small family from Afghanistan to live in our third floor apartment. They have been here just over 2 weeks, a dad, a mom and a 6 year old boy.

The boy is already in school in an immersion program, that dad had lived here before so knows English, and the mom, who is quite young came from the provinces. They had to get out of Kabul after the Taliban reclaimed it. Many others have not such good luck.

Chinese. you go to chinese restaurants and order vegetarian
11:59 am

Utensils and dishes need to be Kosher also. People I know have 2 dishwashers to keep them seperate.
11:59 am
Kaplan the Magne

If there are strictly observant, no- only Kosher restaurants. But as I said people make their own rules, bringing the kosher-at-home-but-we-eat-out people who my mother thought were hypocrites.
12:00 pm

there's always the JCC, but chinese works too.

Making a kitchen strictly Kosher for Passover is a nightmare.

if your costco is anything like ours, you don't want to go --- they are no longer restricting numbers of people in the store at one time and it was a mob seem --- even in that huge warehouse there were so many people it was impossible to stay 6 feet away from anyone.

Reading back, I stopped going to Costco and then did not renew my membership because of the constant mob scenes there. And that was way before COVID. The savings is not worth what you have to put up with to shop there.
