comment Should shma be read in the special trop?
And why do you assume Shema' needs to be read with any trop?

comment Should shma be read in the special trop?
Isn't the trop for the day used for the unique readings for the day? On R"H that might encompass all the public readings (maybe). But on Simhath Torah it is only for some of the readings. On 9 Av there are some parts read in "Eicha Trop" and some not. On Purim, similarly. Why would you assume that this would fit that category of special reading?

@Matt, can you write up an answer explaining why I am misunderstanding something fundamental?

@Matt unspecified, neighborly, "Hey, can I borrow some milk?"

@double Assume not, but why should that matter?

revised Saying “HaMakom yenachem…” multiple times
Consistency, editing per comments (not really worth the fight for purposes of the question).

comment What Berachah do you make on a kiwi berry?
Hmm, I disagree with the edits (though I understand them). Is it necessary to provide options? Should I also state that it's not one of the five grains and therefore not Mezonoth? I think my question provided all the relevant information, and by leaving it without suggested answers a person is less likely to question why I chose those suggestions to the exclusion of other options.
