Making a Lanyard

During the first couple of weeks of the summer my grandparents were here. We were going on trips all over Jerusalem with them, and the trips on which I went with them were the best of my life!!. Later on my mother went to a supplies store with my grandmother and bought a lot of stuff, and one of the things she bought for me was a package of Lanyard strings. From school I learned a lot of tricks about how to use Lanyard String and I showed my grandmother how to do a couple of tricks. Here is the nicest and hardest trick I learned to do:

Later on my grandmother generously offered to buy the american type of lanyard, and I was sooooooooooooo Excited. When she returned to america she went to baltimore to visit my cousins for a week, and the day she came back to teaneck she also bought the lanyard.

Getting a 24 Key X-key Device

A couple of days ago I got a X-key (Extra keys) Device. My father got a 20 key one a couple of months ago and I liked it so I saved all my Birthday money that I got from my Great Grandmother & Grandfather until I had enough money to buy the 24 Key Device. When I checked online how much it costs and I figured out that the same amount the 20 key one costs the same as the 24 key. I've already set a couple of keys to do something for me. For example Button1 - Make a new folder, Button2 - Run Command Prompt, and so on. The picture above is the picture of what I got.
Here is the link to the 24 X-key Device on amazon:

Watching a movie with Friends

On Tuesday I wanted to have a movie party. Apparently that same day I had Swimming lessons at 16:00 So I delayed the party to 18:00. On my way back from the swimming pool I stopped by the Minimarket to get microwavable popcorn. As soon as I got Home I set up the projector and the screen. My original plan was to invite a few friends and one of them would sleep over. On Sunday my friend had said he could sleepover but on tuesday he said he could come for the movie but not for the sleepover. However there was another conflict. My youth group Advisor wanted to plan an activity at 18:00, but when he heard that i'm inviting a few people for a movie so he suggested that the activity would be the movie and I agreed. So he invited my whole youth group to the movie and since my group is for the whole town it includes hebrew speakers that don't understand english. Because of the hebrew speakers I had to work for 2 Hours on HEBREW subtitles and make sure they would fit to the movie. The movie we watched is called:

The Comparison of The Yeshiva Boys Choir Concerts

Last night (5/08/10) I went to the second Yeshiva Boys Choirs concert. As I said in the last post they asked for a comparison and which one I thought was better. So after the show I went to a guy called Yidde (he was the one who made all the anouncments). When I went over to him I explained to him who I was, and he asked me which one I liked better. This is what I told him:

1. The first one was better because I was more excited and it was my first concert. However the second concert was better because the audience was way more active and therefore it was twice as exciting.

2. Yaakov Mordechai and Eli Gerstners are half brothers. Eli is in his 20s and director of the choir, and Yaakov Mordechai is only 12 Years old and joined the choir when he was 5. Right before they start the song that they always sing together Eli intrduces Yaakov Mordechai in two different ways.
In the first concert - that Yaakov Mordechai fit in his suitcase and slept through the whole flight nicely.
In the second concert - that there was smoke all around him wherever he was.

Those were the main big differences between both concerts!!!!

The Yeshiva Boys Concert

On Sunday August First I went to the yeshiva boys choir concert. I first decided to go a couple of weeks before, but I forgot to order the tickets until last thursday. When I remembered I told my father and he ordered the tickets. He agreed to buy each of us a 75 shekel ticket (The cheepest and furthest away seat), but I really wanted to be up infront so I saved up my money until i had enough to get 125 Shekel tickets which are close and right infront of the stage. On sunday my father came home early from his work to go with me to the concert. I packed myself some food that just ended up rotting in my bag, because the concert was so good i totaly forgot that I was hungry. Towards 9 aclock I asked my father if I could go buy some more popcorn with my money. He agreed and said he'd come with me. once we were out we decided to go to the bathroom. When we came back in the choir was finishing a song and then there was an intermission. That was perfect timing because during the intermission the popcorn line was very long, and the bathroom was filled. at the end I decided that the concert was so good and I wanted to go again on thursday. My father said that i'd have to pay for all the tickets and he can't take me. Later we agreed that my mother would come with me. When my father called they were out of the cheepest tickets, but they said I would get a 10 percent discount if after the concert I came over and told them the differences between the concerts and which one was better, and I agreed.
