Saturday is the Sabbath.
From Sundown on Friday to Sundown on Saturday is the Sabbath [ Shabbat in Hebrew]. Egged buses do not operate on Shabbat. All of the stores are closed. So, I am kicking back to doing research stuff on the internet.

One of the things that I've been thinking about, is traveling around Israel by bus. This will be after my Cousin Jacky departs Israel, on June 19th. So, today I've been researching going by bus from place to place. I'd like to travel distances as I did when driving MsTioga. Then stay overnite. Don't know how this will work. Hmmmmm?

Room mate Gershon.
I'd like to introduce you to my room mate Gershon. I rent my room from Gershon, and one of the great things about my room is that it includes wireless internet! Pretty neat, huh?

Gershon and I have things in common. One is that we both are computer nerds. Another thing in common is that we both have the same name in Hebrew. Yes! My name in Hebrew is Gershon!

Jerusalem has been Gershon's home for 16 years. He has dual citizenship in the United States and Israel. Gershon works part time in computer support, a green house and is also active in ceramics and drawing!
