Dropbox is a nifty tool for those who travel

dropbox_referral_ill_1 Dropbox allows you to store files at their site, but the best feature is the ability to sync the files on your desktop computer with those on your laptop. Before I leave home I put some of the files I am working with in my Dropbox. They are available online or on my laptop whenever I need them. If I make a change in one of the files on the laptop, the change is made on my desktop. If I add a new file in my Dropbox on the laptop that file will be in my Dropbox at home when I return. This program is really user friendly.

It is possible to create a share folder in your Dropbox that enables you to easily share files with a friend.

Here is how the features of Dropbox are described at their website.

  • Sync files across computers
  • Access files online from anywhere
  • Share and collaborate with others

You can get 2 Gb of space free by downloading Dropbox.

If you use the link below you will get an additional .25 Gb of space. Click this link to get Dropbox plus the bonus space.

I am enjoying this program and am pleased to inform my readers about it.

Mount Hermon is a source of water

The land captured by Joshua and the Israelites included “Baal Gad in the valley of Lebanon at the foot of Mount Hermon” (Joshua 11:17). Today we call this valley to the east of Mount Hermon the Beka Valley. Some have suggested that Baal Gad might be the site later known as Paneas (now Banias), and later Caesarea Philippi. Dan is another important biblical town located at the foothills of Mount Hermon.

Brethren dwelling together in unity is said to be “like the dew of Hermon Coming down upon the mountains of Zion” (Psalm 133:3). Mount Hermon receives an annual average of about 60 inches of precipitation. In the winter the mountain is usually fully covered with snow.

The proximity of Mount Hermon to Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus was confessed to be the Christ, and where he promised to build the church, causes many scholars to suggest it as the “high mountain” of the transfiguration (Matthew 16:13 – 17:1-9).
