Video of Day Six has been moved to my Pilgrimage site — Click here

Today was Day 6 and we got a lot done. We visited all the major sites on the Mount of Olives including Pater Noster, Dominus Flavit, Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of the Agony. We had Mass at the Church of All Nations (Church of the Agony) in the Garden of Gethsemane. We also visited all the major sites on Mount Zion including the Church of Peter in Gallicantu before lunch.

After lunch we looked out over Jerusalem from the Promenade lookout point. Then we went to the Church of Dormition and the Upper Room on Mount Zion. We visited the 2nd Temple model of the 1st Century city of Jerusalem and the Temple. We had a great day. More details soon. Everyone is doing well and dismayed that the trip has only two days left!

What the Heck is the Big Thing?

CAN YOU GUESS, WHAT THIS IS? 

Hard drive.bmp

Its a hard disk from 1956…. with the volume and size of 5MB memory storage!

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive (HDD).
The HDD weighed over a ton and stored only 5MB of data.

Makes you appreciate your 4 GB USB drive, doesn't it? (4 gigabytes = 4096 megabytes)
