On the way to Capnarnaum I saw two vehicles flying the UN flag marked with UN:

We are here with the DayStar TV network.  They had a fundraiser where you could donate $300 and you would get a olive tree planted for you, with your name by it, in this olive orchard ran by Olive Bond.

It was pretty good.  Next we had a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee with a devotional service in the middle.  And we sang the Star Spangle banner and raised the American flag too

A pretty good day!  Now we are back at the hotel.  We are going to go downstairs, eat dinner, settle up on the hotel Internet bill.  Tomorrow morning we leave this hotel for one in Jerusalem.
