Nice Mention

Nice article in the Forward about the OU's decision to put up a piece disparaging working mothers on the front page of their site, which I criticized in this post last week. There's a nice little quote from my blog in the Forward article, and one from a comment on the post's comment thread:
The essay, which first appeared several years ago in the O.U.'s Jewish Action magazine, drew criticism from Orthodox bloggers on the Internet and from some Orthodox women who work.

"Um, is someone a bit defensive?" asked popular blogger Orthomom, a mother of four. "Laud yourself all you want. But when it comes to my life's choices... please shut up."

Others criticized the O.U.'s decision to post the article on its front page. One respondent on Orthomom's site said, "I don't think it's the place of the O.U. to put an editorial like that out there without it saying in big bold letters that it is an opinion piece and not the opinion of the institution, which supposedly represents all of us."
The writer also quotes Avraham:
"I'm not sure what message this is supposed to send all the married/child-rearing women who work at the O.U.," "Avraham" wrote on www.thebronsteins.com.
I wonder what Avraham did to get his actual web address published, though. But can't complain, I guess - she called me a "popular blogger"!

Is Avraham's name in quote marks in the original as well?

LOl. The author apparently thinks that "Avrohom" of www.thebronsteins.com is a pseudonym. Except that his name is actually Avrohom Bronstein, as you well know. Funny.

I plan to buy adobe photoshop offered for cheap at http://www.software-cheap.net but they sell it without the box and manual. Just want to know what's there so special in the manual taking in account that i'm already familiar with photoshop?
any feedback please?

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010

After having used a $20

straightener just to see if I'd actually use one if I had it, I finally stopped wanting to fry my hair, and decided to upgrade. I picked this one out because of the long titanium plates, and because I'd

heard an alarming amount of bad things about the Chi flat irons. I have been so happy with this straightener. My hair is super straight, smooth, and shiny. I've gotten so many compliments on my hair since

using it. It's glides right through my thick, stubborn, wavy hair. One stroke usually gets it perfect, some extremely stubborn parts take two. It's so easy and fast to use. I've got so much hair (a

hairdresser once called me "Mufasa", if that's any indication), and I'm done in about 15 minutes.

I have been using

a Chi straightener for most of my life and I thought it was the best. This past Christmas I bought this straightener for my mom. I used it all month and the difference is amazing. I don't know if it's

because of the titanium plates or the degree to which it heats, but it straightens the hair in one pass through and leaves it SO SHINY. My hair stays straight longer after using this, too. I love it and have

made the switch to babyliss!
