(b) The Mishnah in Perek Chavis permits one to place cold water in the sand
- ... a cooked pot into a pit to be stored?

Can the author of *this* Mishnah be the Tana Kama of Rebbi
Yossi in our Mishnah, who forbids the frying of an egg in a hot cloth?
(c) What is the Machlokes between Rebbi Yossi and the Tana Kama?
(d) Why does Rebbi Yossi not argue with the prohibition of placing an egg
in the sand (two answers - Rabbah and Rav Yosef)?

placing the egg in the sand is because one may subsequently come to place
it in hot ashes, or because one may move some sand in the process, and dig

Rebbi Meir forbids Shituf altogether.
(b) May one wash one's head, arms and legs on Yom-Tov with water that was
heated on Yom-tov specifically for washing?
(c) What is the problem then, with our Mishnah, which writes, in reference
to the pipe of the men of Teverya: 'Im be'Shabbos, *ke'Chamin she'Huchmu
be'Shabbos*, va'Asurin bi'Rechitzah u'vi'Shesiyah; Im be'Yom-Tov, ke'Chamin
she'Huchmu be'Yom-Tov, *va'Asurin bi'Rechizah*, u'Mutarin bi'Shesiyah'?
