Coming from Israel? Bring back some Hair Halva

This is one of my favorite sweets – goes by the name of Hair Halva, Floss Halva, Swirly Halva. The name in Hebrew is "חלבה שערות אוורירית" (hope I spelled this right).

I was not able to find it in Seattle. I will always be grateful to anyone who brings some back!

Repairing my Beetle's window regulator

Coming home, winding up my window, I hear a very nasty noise of something snapping and metal wire being strained. Windows will not go up all the way.

Go online, judging by how easy it was to find discussions on the topic, this does not seem to be unique. I take the door apart confirm the problem. The good folks at the dealership don't seem to be able to commit to a specific ETA for having the repair done so I come back home with spares.

Major thanks to VgRt6 at VWvortex for this excellent article on Replacing the front door window regulator clips and/or door lock module. The instructions were for a Golf/Jetta but worked great on my Beetle.

The hardest part was Part II, step 24 - there just wasn't enough slack on the line to do this easily by hand. I used 2 pieces of wire to tension the cable as I was slipping it over the little pulley.

Total: $68 for the VW repair kit, $10 for a triple square tool, about 2-3 hours of work, most of it double checking each step.
