Ask Raul

Sorry to all members, I cleared this topic since I thought it might break some Hallachot. Since now, I aim to reply only questions about myself, or my personal opinions.

No, I live in a very small place, the rest of the house is rented to a trader for a clothes shop. Not much place for pets, and I think it's better no to have them than not caring properly

Well you're in the garment trade so that's a step to being Jewish, Raul.  ;)

No, not only that. I also have a piece of land. Agriculture is a great business here, with internatinal prices so high in dollars. By renting one house you only eat ten days in a month here. LOL

I only used to give support classes for those who were at the secondary school, or had left, and had Ebglish pendant. Ages, 16-18, even some older, since many people here leave school and don't get the certificate because of pendant subjects.

Well, now the education sytem has changed a lot. Children have English at primary school. Anyway nobody leaves school speaking it. As for me, I don't believe I'd be a good teacher now, since there is internet here, about seven years ago, I have spend several hours a day chatting, writting and reading non-formal English and... you know.... not easy to stick to the correct British English structure required by schools here. If you add the fact that I also use to write and read Archaic English.....that's a problem.

Just don't know by now.
And you, why do you speak so many languages? BTW, sometimes your English is not easy for me to understand, do you speak other language in your daily life?

Why because of my job, and my first husband was/is a Legionnaire and I travelled around the world when I could to be with him. I ended up in many countries. So I learnt many languages. Also my parents we very nomadic and I grew up traveling, so very much like gypsy's to say the least. I think thats way I am so very different to many people in this world.

Yes I speak "woman"  :laugh:

Well I have a hybrid language I speak with my family, outsiders are very confused when we are together. We are very close and often use half sentences, yet we know what is unsaid. We are like the Borg  :::D

Why and How did you become a Noahide?

And Do you think that there is or can be a Noahide-compatible religion for gentiles, so they won't have to depend on rabbis to determine  halachot?

Raul, I have only a small piece of land behind my business and I use every square-meter to grow tabacco, tomatoes and wine.

Agriculture is the best for a man. If I will have saved enough money, I will buy a farm.

Begin with a little garden and a few cultures.

Then greater cultures are no big problem.

You should really try it.

I have a whole bookshelf full of books about agriculture. I love to read this stuff.

The best author for beginners is John Seymour:

In fact most animals cannot be bred by a Noahide, since they usually have to be castrated, and the Noahide Laws forbid it. A Noahide can eat all animals, but I feel aversion to pigs and shellfish.
