I work as a computer tester by day. By night I like to write. I like cats and dogs.

You can also try using Bulgur en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgur, which is made up of wheat; alternatively, some Kasha is also made of wheat.

comment Is there such a thing as kosher perry?
Thanks, that gives me a bit more to work with; I tried looking up Kosher Perry and Kosher Pear cider, but didn't get the same hits you did (the main ones were for a comedian Rick Perry). Still, there has to be something with a London Kashrut!

comment Is there such a thing as kosher perry?
@SethJ, No, I can't say that it is widely available outside the UK; I recognize that this is a fairly unique drink, but I saw it featured on a show once and was intrigued. Besides, I live in Holland, so in theory I should be able to get access to Perry a bit easier - if it doesn't come all the way from Australia, that is!

comment Being exposed to Christmas music
@ShmuelL, this is sort of an extention of listening to non-Jewish music. Because Christmas music is so prevelant in Western culture (unlike other Christian holidays - you don't usually hear any Candelmaas music unless you're in a church setting), this is unique - you're not actively looking to listen to non-Jewish music when you watch television, for example, and more than half of a TV show's soundtrack is just background music. Christmas music is the big exception.

comment Does someone who dies very young have a soulmate?
@Menachem, I was indeed asking about someone who dies young; in theory, I could also have asked about those who die unwed, but to my mind (also like msh210 says) there is a big difference to someone who could get married (even if they are young), and someone who never had the chance because they were a small baby when they died. I tried looking for this question, to see if it was asked before, and didn't see it asked, which is why I asked it in the first place.

comment Sand art on Shabbos
@MosheYitzhak, when you use sand in this fashion, you're making it into a drawing, albeit one made of sand. The whole point of using colored sand is to be able to make some kind of art.
