comment When did people stop wearing Tefilin all day?
This question was inspired by avi's comment "The ruling was made that we don't wear it all day anymore. So that means at some point in History, they wore it all day. When the ruling was passed down, they didn't call them Totafot" to my response to judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/9407/…

comment Should one avoid doing laundry on Motzei Shabbos?
There is no basis in Halacha not to do laundry on Motzei Shabbos. This may be a Minhag that some people do, yet I have not been able to find a source.

comment Tachanun for Shacharis in the afternoon, on a day where there is no Tachanun at Mincha
If someone has a Vadai answer, please post it and my answer will be removed. For lack of a Vadai answer, this is the Halacha.
