"That's a lot of alternate tunings, WV ..."...fair comment but, then, so do some English trad carols - e.g. the "Sans Day Carol". Anyway, if you wish to hear if it works - myspace player .

"Well, it was quite sunny today in Harlow and a week ago the place was deep in snow.

Here's a page with some pictures of Bethlehem in the snow: "Three days later, Bethlehem had its annual snow day. It was coming down pretty good. Since Bethlehem is built on hills, the snow almost totally stopped traffic. I walked around and took photos. Got into a few halfhearted snowball fights."

People have this assumption that it's always sunny out in the Holy Land, and it's not true."...I noticed that was dated in February, and admit that, if so, it's quite good evidence to the contrary...but I wonder if there is any record of a "white Christmas" in Bethlehem?..surely, if so, that would be on the web somewhere..?
