      Shiloh Musings

      Under the Cover of Darkness

      There's always more to read on my other blogs, Shiloh Musings and me-ander.  Me-ander is hosting a contest promoting Suzy Fishbein's new book  Kosher by Design Teens 20-Somethings: cooking for the next generation , which includes a free book for the contest winner.  And the latest Kosher Cooking Carnival was posted on Sunday.

      I wasn't in Shiloh during yesterday's fire at Tel Shiloh, but I may have stumbled on another news item.

      Under the Cover of Darkness

      The past few nights I've been returning home to Shiloh after dark. I took these two pictures, which you see twice, since I tried lightening them. There are Arab trucks bringing all sorts of suspicious things to wherever every night. I'm not patrolling, just riding a bus, so you shouldn't think that I'm looking for these trucks. But I did see them both nights. Yes, covered trucks, hiding something.

      They make me very suspicious.

      PS The pictures were taken north of Jerusalem on the way to Shiloh. I'm pretty sure I took these between the "Maavar Michmas-Psagot" turn-off and the "T Junction" to Beit El.
