Advice

If you are fasting, do not read this forum, and please most of all do not cook dinner for the whole family.
Do not be as stupid as I am.

what are you fasting for, chuck? i'm not aware if a high holy day, but then again i've been busy and traffic seems to be normal of late (a nyc joke).

btw, maybe you could answer a question for me. my mil is buried in an are next to what seems to be a primarily jewush burial atea.. i noticed mamy of the headstones in the "jewish neighborhood" had small stones on them. i figure it's some gesture of a person visiting the grave, but i wondered if you could explain the significance?

Are the stones on the top of the H/stone in a line made up of groups of even numbers?
