Quite right.  I was there in winter and got snowed in for 3 days at a 
kibbutz near Jerusalem.

I'd also like to endorse the Holocene Calendar at this point since it 
results in all events since the development of agriculture having a 
positive date.  Much easier for comparison.

OnUNIX: Development of UNIX started in 11969HE.  See, perfectly sensible.
