Hope so Cools. Would love to see some of your favourite places. My laptop is constantly being changed too. Something to do with something, but I never know and don't understand. The end of this months sees Google change, so I don't know if it will affect anything, but as most see to work on their iPhones now, I suppose all things are geared to them. Extremely inconsiderate ! smile

I find this interesting.. mainly because the bible story of Lot's wife turning into a pillar of salt, could actually be substantiated by the location and the salt tunnels.
The story clearly gives an account of a volcanic eruption and possibly in those times the only way to describe his wife , covered in molten ash or lava would be as a comparison to a pillar of salt, although I'm not so sure the said 'pillars' in the video are necessarily the original one.

(As a matter of interest, if anyone reads any more about this in Genesis.. the mention of 'angels' translated means 'messengers' not a winged type of human smile )

Genesis 19 ; 23- 29
23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.

The second video has in the last few years discovered the longest salt caves in the world ,at Mount Sodom in the same location as the Dead Sea in Israel . 7,000 yrs old and 6 miles long.

More of the same in a bit more detail. We have to take from it what we wish, and see it as an amazing place.

Oh dear.. he (the above one) is really heavy. Sorry folks, I thought it was more about the terrain rather than the scriptures. Interesting, but certainly not for everyone. US bible punchers.

Brooks falls Katmai national park Alaska. Would love to be on the viewing platform watching these bears but not too sure whether I would be brave enough to just walk around bumping into the bears on the pathways etc. Ha .

Rome, an absolutely amazing place ! I had 4 days, and would love to go back. The Colosseum was completed in 8 yrs !!!. This video, although long has no dialogue, but it does have script at times. It takes you on the ground level, the dungeons and animal pens , up onto the higher levels .. it is impossible to get the magnitude of it.
In 70 AD Rome sieged Jerusalem and took over 80,000 Jewish slaves. This building commenced in 72 AD, so no doubt it was built by the slaves. The thickness of the walls and the brickwork is amazing.
The guide we had said there have never been any remains of gladiators found, and the men in the general population were all small in those days, about 5' 4" .

Nobody is ever allowed to stand under or walk under the Arch of Constantine, because Hitler stood under it and gave a speech. At 23 mins + there are some spectacular views.

At least it beats watching 2 episodes of Eastenders ! smile

The City I enjoyed, very much to my surprise, was Berlin. I hate hustle and bustle places like London and assumed Berlin to be yet another Capital City. The only problem I had was the food which was wild guesswork even with dual language menus yet I've never had the same problem in Austria.

The many old buildings were incredible and like Liverpool it has a bombed out church.

Did anyone ever wonder how the ancient civilizations managed to send messages to each other over hundreds of miles, to different countries without roads or transport ?

Pigeons !

Pigeons have lived alongside man for thousands of years with the first images of pigeons being found by archaeologists in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and dating back to 3000 BC. It was the Sumerians in Mesopotamia that first started to breed white doves from the wild pigeon that we see in our towns and cities today and this undoubtedly accounts for the amazing variety of colors that are found in the average flock of urban pigeons. To ancient peoples a white pigeon would have seemed miraculous and this explains why the bird was widely worshipped and considered to be sacred. Throughout human History the pigeon has adopted many roles ranging from symbols of gods and goddesses through to sacrificial victims, messengers, pets, food and even war heroes!

The earliest large scale communication network using pigeons as messengers was established in Syria and Persia about 5th Century BC. Much later in the 12th Century AD the city of Baghdad and all the main towns and cities in Syria and Egypt were linked by messages carried by pigeons. This was the sole source of communication. In Roman times the pigeon was used to carry results of sporting events such as the Olympic Games and this is why white doves are released at the start of the Olympic Games today



I'd like to fly with them sometimes, to wherever they go to.

The Lost Gardens of Babylon.

They have been looking in the wrong place for ever, but Stephanie Dalley , a code breaker and one of very few people to be able to read ancient texts, found where the Lost Gardens were.
