comment Which Names of Hashem can/can't we say [in regular conversation]?
I'd be hesitant to call it 'the Kitzur S.A's Minhag' because there are probably other sources.....but to answer your question, yes.

comment Which Names of Hashem can/can't we say [in regular conversation]?
Well, my first question was must it be mispronounced like the other names... but if it does need to be mispronounced then ...well yes, I suppose I'd like to know the 'accepted' mispronounciation. [possibly coined by particlar Rabbanim?]

comment Special occasions where various Chassidim don't say Tachanun
@SethJ : An exhaustive list isn't necessary, however if you know of particular klallim which various Chassidim have regerding not saying Tachanun - that would do. [i.e like the one I mentioned in my question , or like msh210 pointed out about not saying Tachanun in Mincha.

comment Why did the Baba Sali leave Yavneh?
@SethJ You are correct. Just found this video chabad.org/therebbe/livingtorah/player_cdo/aid/1600169/jewish/… of Rabbi Machluf Krispin who is married to the granddaughter of the Baba Sali and gives his first hand testimony of what happened. (from 2:30 minutes of the video and onward)

comment Shiv'a Ushlosh Meyot - mi yodeya?
Indeed, according to my calculation, Noch sent the dove for the third time on the 310th day of the flood - which works out to be the 2nd of Tishrei. ... (regarding @DoubleAA's point - it seems that Rashi is ok with using Cheshvan as 29 days, Kislev as 30 days Tevet - 29 and so on -- see Rashi Bereshit 8:3)

comment Shiv'a Ushlosh Meyot - mi yodeya?
I think this wiki is incorrect. Bereshit 8:13 says that on the 1st of the first month (=Tishrei acc. to R. Eliezer) "the waters dried up from upon the earth, and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and he saw, and behold, the surface of the ground had dried up" - which isn't necessarily connected to the previos pasuk 8:12 concerning how Noah sent a dove for the third time......
