Two interesting insights from my understanding or the Mishna Brurah O”C 551
90 – Torah learning is more important than voluntary fasting for a talmid chacham – it requires a careful balancing act (me-isn’t that true of life in general)
95 – If you’ll skip voluntary mikveh visits under time pressure or due to the cold, it shows your real relationship to the mikveh. (me – see 90 take a look and let me know your thoughts)


Follow up on R’Rimon and parsha sheets from R’Rimon – “Geniza for Parsha Sheets” – “From a purely halachic point of view, it is preferable to put parsha sheets in geniza: Nevertheless, meikar hadin, it seems that one can respectfully place parsha sheets in a garbage bag (preferably two) or in a recycling bin (in a bag) especially when it is unclear if there is even a rabbinic requirement (when none of the seven holy names appear in the text). Apart from that, nowadays there are so many sheets that if they were all put in geniza, it would be an affront to the other sacred writing in the geniza!” (me – very practical considerations – imi morati would love the deference to inanimate objects’ feelings.)
