When was the last time you had that type of sex? Would you even know how to start?

Most of our farmer's markets aren't open in the winter and nearest Trader Joe's, Whole Foods - West Harford at least 1/2 hour away. And only one real supermarket in town. S & S.
(There the Cheshire Home Invasion began...)
Nevere lived somewhere where so many things we need are so far away, but it's still a nice place to live. Town of only around 30K (1/4 of Stamford Populationl; 1/2 of G'ch). Only one fast food place in the whole town.(And we usually have to go out of town to dine as well.)
But when "Norton Brothers Fruit Farm" open soon.....awesome produce and pies! And it's been there since the 1700s. New England is a nice place to live.
Yep, you do live in the boonies..lol. Farmers markets are a seasonal activity, though the season is longer than one would think. TJs just opened in town in the old Borders, before that we had to go all the way to Darien (life is so tough sometimes..)

Whole Foods is usually a ripoff as well, but they have some good stuff if you shop carefully. Would never shop there routinely.

Fairway, new to town, is amazing too, but again, you have to watch your purchases carefully. Produce is usually poor but if you want a selection of 6000 types of honey, or just about any other type of staple, its an experience....

One thing Sford has is no lack of choice for groceries!

Circumcision is really not more than a prick, pain wise. Most babies rebound in a matter of seconds.

You are confusing the issue of mutilation (which is a subjective. emotively laden word) with the issue of consent - of which I agree is an interesting issue. And to that, when society starts requiring consent for ear piercing then I think it is fair to talk about circumcision.

I have no qualms if gentiles step back from the health argument, and the herd mentality. Thats a gentile issue, not my issue, of course. Bottom line is that it is central to the Jewish tradition. If gentiles want to adopt the custom, ritual and prayers and all, that are free to do so. Kosher is central to the tradition as well, and there are many gentiles who by kosher food thinking it is healthier (ironically often it is not - depending). Another practice taken out of its context.
Never once have I mourned the loss of my foreskin, nor have I seen any convincing data to support Apu's assertion that sensitive nerve endings are lost. Rubbers are more of a loss to feeling than any foreskin.
I think we're going to let this issue go. Clearly it's a hot button issue with you and as such you are not able to maintain objectivity, perhaps understandably.

Though we've established that 95% of Americans still doing it to their kids are non-Jews so as mentioned, to take the backlash as an affront against your own traditions seems a bit specious and unfounded.

Clearly the backlash is against the procedure, not 5% of the people doing it.

And think about it - if the backlash came out of anti-Semitism, why so recent? Anti-Semitism (like racism) has been with us for a very long time.

Did the gentiles just recently find a new way to attack the Jews?! Get serious my friend..

And BTW, I ONLY buy Hebrew Nat'l Hotdogs/Knockwurst etc - it tastes the best! And I don't mind paying for a little extra.

How's you husband?

Remember that at age 4 I was fully aroused when my maid was massaging me and a few days ago I got a hard-on looking at the Israeli supermodel's Bar Rafaeli's exposed breasts.

So, if I ever decide to shake off my virginal status in future, I'll face no problem with man-woman sex and besides my inexperience won't be a barrier for long since I'm a quick learner.

Bye, have to go.

Take care.

The recent spate of yogic experiences have made my nervous system so very super-sensitive that my body can't handle the assortment of inferior vibes invading my body from most inanimate objects as well as from a majority of animate entities.Surprisingly, I can even perceive the vibes of someone's body imprint on furniture. clothes and other stuff that the person may have touched. I can't bear the touch of another person as the nerves in my hand begin trembling and after some time become painful and the sensations reach the heart center where they affect my respiration when I shake hands with most people. Everything has taken on a new reality of forces at work behind the appearances of the physical forms. My body has become a highly conducting EM device that's fully open to the play of the forces in and around me with induction electrical effects troubling me. I am suffering to an extent.

That's false, it was the entire Japanese nation behind their efforts. How could they all have supported such acts if they were Buddhists?

I think you are mireading me. i already opined that in America, I think the intent against it is somewhat pure. I just disagree with their logic, thats all. And I think it is unrealistic, considering the role it plays in religious expression.(BTW I would trust a mohel over a Dr anyday to perform the act - I dont think Drs have nearly as much experience)

Europe - thats a different story. There it is a thinly disguised cover for anti-semitism - part of a greater movement against Jews and mainly muslims, which includes ban on slaughtering, and religious expression such as clothing and symbols.

Often Kosher meat is overly salty (part of the process)- not good for you, btw. I dont like kosher dogs mainly because of the nitrates. But I'll eat one anyday over a nonKosher dog.

Why would he create them and then expect them to not behave according to their nature?
rabbee: no! G-D did not, create people to be gay. i do not know how, you can deduce that from be fruitful and multiply. being gay is from marketing of halooseefer, from the subtle beasts of the fields and is not from G-D. you need to be careful about, it's only natural for the animals stuff. i mean the worship of halooseefer, is as bad as you can get. so the more you approve of this, the worse it is going to get. the more you approve of any sin, the worse the sin is going to get.

Growing up there were 3 or 4 food stores down in the village part of OG - now just one - King's (former Porecelli's/Food Mart). And it's expensive.

The A&P off exit 5 is the place to go when in town,

When we lived in Phila (late 90s) a new food store opened fairly close to us - Fresh Fields - which is the Whole Foods company. cool place to shop and visit but agree - definitely not for everyday.

This paragraph to me seems full of confusion, all due respect.

1. "....somewhat pure....?" Not sure how you mean this.

2. "...logic...." What does logic have to do with not wanting to cut a piece of your baby's ding dong off?? for no good reason (assuming proper hygiene is taught and practiced).

3. Why keep bringing religion into it? I think it's pretty clear by now we're talking about the 95% of cutters who are non-Jews. And therefore were never doing it for religious reasons.

The AAP was pretty clear. They don't recommend it but leave it up to the parents. So I don't hear them condemning anyone who wants to keep doing it (for whatever reason).

(And I eat hotdogs - speaking of ding dongs - about as often as I eat its nontubular cousin, bologna (beef only), which is to say not very..)
