Flying Bicycles?

If these are for tying/locking bicycles...



...what are these for?


I've always had a strange mind, and when I just went through my facebook albums, I could see the unexpected similarities in the two pictures.

Our minds play all sorts of tricks on us.

Yesterday two raised in Israel neighbors  were joking around about Hebrew and how even people like themselves misread words and signs.  Hebrew isn't written with vowels in most cases, so it's so easy to misread a word.  I had thought that only people like myself, not raised speaking and reading Hebrew, can have those linguistic mishaps.  It's a comfort to know I was wrong about it.

I have just booked my flights to Israel for after Simchat Torah. When you have time over the next few weeks, please let me know how to get to Shiloh. Is there someone who can guide us through the sites/ archaeology during the day? How do I contact that person to set up the trip. We wil be staying inJerusalem for three weeks. Thanks in advance!

Shalom!
Well I misread things in English sometimes so I assume that everyone misreads once in a while in his/her first language.

True, especially when tired.
