comment How do you get oil residue off of a menora?
if it is silver, make sure to polish afterwards, then wrap in cloth, and store in an air-tight bag until next year.

comment What's a good technique for a not-so-strong person to do [Ashkenazi] Hagbaha?
I just tried to down-vote this answer, and then realized that I couldn't, because it was mine. I guess I will have to look harder for other smarmy, sarcastic responses.

comment Turning off a stove on Shabbat
What about an oven? As far as I understand, one can turn the thermostat on your wall up or down, as long as it prolongs the current status, i.e. up when the heat is on, down when it is off. Would the same apply to an oven, if there is no food inside?

comment Moving muktza garbage cans?
I imagine it depends what kind of muktzeh it is: mius, muktzeh machmat atzmo, etc? And also WHY are you moving it? do you need the space (i.e. they are blocking traffic), or do you need the cans back? And this makes me wonder: can you move muktzeh l'tzorech makom, if the "tzorech" is doing a melacha (e.g. driving a car in the driveway)?

comment Eating your own (kosher) food in a non-kosher restaurant?
Ah yes, nothing says "Professional Business Meeting" like a 18-inch pile of wet plastic wrap, tin foil, and styrofoam next to your disposable plate of overcooked vegetables.
