to be a Canaanite

Moses (Mosheh) leads me out of the desert, and drives me to the Galilee in an hour.
My new apt. is a mile from the duplex cave where Shem (son of Noah, and his son Ever -- another  meanibg of IVRit or Hebrew) taught the new kid, Abram the Chaldean, the language of Eden that all younger people had lost in the neurolinguistic upheaval at the Tower of  Babel (Shinar or Sumer).

I'm moving to a neighborhood of Sfad called K'nan, as in the land of Canaan. I shall be a Canaanite?! 

 I hope not, but in honor of extinct Semitic neighbors I began a short Hittite list.

My Israeli cable guy is due in tomorrow, so I hope to not miss a beat.
