I like the salad. Note that neither agvaniyot nor salat are Biblical or classical Hebrew.

comment Giving Tzedakah with a Credit Card
There's a well-known tradition from ... I believe R' Yaakov Kaminetsky that a charity can have overhead as high as 49.9% and still be called a charity. I heard this in Rabbi Breitowitz's lecture on maaser, and then later on a rabbi Rakeffet mp3.

comment When does somebody living in space (e.g. ISS) observe Shabbat?
@tomsmith, see star-k.org/kashrus/kk-whendoesonepraywhenthereisnoday.htm . "Hometown" is Tiferes Yisrael; 6-6 is Ben Ish Chai. Jerusalem and last-normal-place visited were also given as answers (don't recall by whom) when Ilan Ramon ah's asked. (I think I saw that one in jpost a while ago.) Last-normal-place visited is similar to "closest-normal-place", which is what someone online said was RM"F's answer in one instance. (Again that's hearsay) ... this is fun as the South Pole would, depending on your rabbi, follow either Jerusalem or Christchurch!

comment Al Hamichya and Al Haetz
And if you had lots of grapes but only a nibble of cookie, once you're making an "al ha'etz", you can add in the phrase "al hamichya." (Igros Moshe.)

comment The Rambam's Nekudah Neflah (נקודה נפלאה)
Ergo, according to Rambam, if you take common non-kosher beef (that wasn't kosher-slaughtered) and then cook it in milk, you're still allowed to benefit from it -- e.g. feed it to your pet. Most Achronim don't follow the Rambam, with exception of Dagul Mervava (Rabbi Yechezkel Landau of Prague, aka Noda Bihuda)
