It will be 54 years ago this coming November when one of the most tragic days in American history happened at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. Today, The World on Wheels makes a visit to pay homage to a president taken out way to early. A Tragic Day in History in Dallas

It's an impossible task to see everything in our nation's capital in two weeks, let alone a day but come along anyway with The World on Wheels​ as we slog from one end of the city to another trying to take it all in with an all-new report and video. A Monumental Journey Across Washington, D.C.

Rare Jewish Coins from 1st Century Discovered

An archaeological excavation along the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Highway revealed a previously unknown settlement from the Late Second Temple period -- including a rare hoard of coins that was found in one of its houses. The hoard, which was kept in a ceramic money box, included 114 bronze coins dating to the Year Four of the Great Revolt against the Romans. This revolt led to the destruction of the Temple on Tisha B’Av (the ninth day of the month of Av) c. 2,000 years ago. 

According to excavation directors, “The hoard, which appears to have been buried several months prior to the fall of Jerusalem, provides us with a glimpse into the lives of Jews living on the outskirts of Jerusalem at the end of the rebellion. Evidently someone here feared the end was approaching and hid his property, perhaps in the hope of collecting it later when calm was restored to the region”. All of the coins are stamped on one side with a chalice and the Hebrew inscription “To the Redemption of Zion” and on the other side with a motif that includes a bundle of lulav between two etrogs. Around this is the Hebrew inscription “Year Four”, that is, the fourth year of the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Romans (69/70 CE).

Searching for vacations online used to be fun. That is until the options became overwhelming, prices changed never to be gotten again with a simple refresh of the page; refunds became a hassle, customer service was chilly and so many other issues that took the fun out of planning your getaway.
