Svetochka is with her boys!

CaptureBoza and I are quiet this morning. We are walking on tiptoes and trying; oh it is hard for boys to be quiet! Svetochka is sleeping and when she comes to the village she sleeps to noon the first day and any other day that I let her sleep that long. Therefore, Bozochka and I are really trying to be quiet and good…

Oh how hard for boys to be good and quiet! 😉

* * * * * * * * * *

Boza and I walked already a long time ago and Boza did his doggy stuff and he wanted to go home. He knows mamma is there and wants to stay by her side. This is normal, for he loves Sveta very much. But then again, so do I…

It is always strange when she comes, for Boza and I are so use to a certain pattern and we religiously follow that pattern. It is how I remember to do things that are necessary for my health. When Sveta comes, Boza and I get off pattern. That is okay though, for soon we will garner another pattern to match the time now and then go back to the old pattern when Svetochka is gone…

Trip to Big Village was rough. The little Niva that Vova has, made it. We had a plowed road, but the Fish Village came and got their blown up bulldozer, with another bulldozer. Thus with a little imagination, you can think about one bulldozer pulling a broken down bulldozer, down a narrow kinda plowed road and as they crashed through the woods, they tore our nice plowed road to pieces…

Thus, it got hairy at times and I have to say the little Niva is tough. But needs a little more height and much better tires. We actually had to plow some areas with the front of the Niva and that was no fun…

* * * * * * * * * *

Here is are two Niva’s living outside of Russia. I really like them…

They both have alternate tires, but one has extreme alternate. I like them and it makes me wish to have a Niva also. I drove Vova’s last night and it is a good vehicle. Though I am use to the spacious Volga and I am a big guy, thus the Volga is more comfortable for me. But being able to crawl around in the deep snow means something also…

I have had a few very interesting e-mails and it looks like I have found a couple of guys who are actually what they are! Guys and real! It is hard on the internet to discern things and like I talked about yesterday, websites are being systematically destroyed, if they do not meet criteria set up by the powers to be. Fake people are a huge part of that system of destruction. I also have set up people trying to befriend me to nuzzle closer. Therefore, if I seem aloof when you first contact me? I have reason for such standoffish attitude at times…

When you spend daily combating Washington D.C. and her attacks against a site that occasionally talks out, with experience learned over the many years I have been alive, on the troubles in the Wonderland called the U.S. of A. Maybe that is why they attack me, I have been first hand on the front line of our great country killing other countries to savor their resources…

I appreciate pictures from other people, for I take a bunch of images myself and get tired of just looking at my shots of life. I love to see what the world has around it and images are part of sharing that makes the world go around…

* * * * * * * * * *

I guess I am done for today. Svetochka is here and I hear here stirring. Boza just, “Ooof ooof” and she heard him He ran under the bed to leave me to get in trouble! Thanks buddy, I will remember that… :)

Coffee Time and windy as all heck…

This morning

This morning

Yes it is definitely coffee time this morning. The wind is blowing like crazy and it is -8 or -9 here in our village (according to the semi-broken thermometer.) No snow until late tonight and maybe tomorrow we will get some snow also. I mean a steady 10 meters per second and gusting to 15 meters a second. That is at least 22 mph plus…

The image to the right is this morning and these are the places nearby us, Well,I should say within 20 kilometers and more. We are on the highest spot around and the wind really blows bad up here. That puts the temperature feeling like -20 Celsius and that my friend is too much for this bear this morning. The wind is slicing through the clothing like it is not there. So it is not so cold as very windy. The trees are talking and what they say is, “Get back inside fool!”

I have talked before about how the wind is a huge factor in survival here and as it blows, you can feel it suck the heat from the home and your body. It has been very interesting to watch the weather in this village and if I remember correctly, Sveta has somehow found a small weather station for me to install here. I then will be able to get accurate readings on many variances of weather… (We do not have accurate readings for our village, but that will change and part of a plan I have is too set up a true weather station in the village. This device that Sveta has found will give accurately, temperature, wind speed, wind direction, humidity and several other readings. I will post these readings if I can get things to work correctly! Big if…)

Therefore, after walking the dog and he was able to do his doggy duties, we are back in the warm home and trying to keep warm. The coffee is perfect this morning; You can hear the wind blowing to beat the band outside and Old Man Winter has decided that we need more freezing and icy conditions. They had called for this week coming up to be warmer, but overnight all that changed. They adjusted the temperatures on the forecast and now it is being changed to the bad side. I suspect by tomorrow, we will find that we have lost all of our plus zero days and they will become negative zero days…

* * * * * * * * *

Tonight Sveta is coming to the Big Village and Vova is going to get me to the Big Village to get her. The road is clear through the woods and Vova has already been that way. The rest of the village is not plowed, for as you remember the bulldozer broke down. It was not a bulldozer weakness issue, it was a man made issue. Man made in the fact that the guys running the bulldozer ran it out of oil and blew the engine. No lie, they blew up the engine in an old Soviet bulldozer. These things are tough as nails and by the simply fact of not checking the oil, they killed it…

Therefore, as always drinking and driving do not mix and the DT 75 Soviet bulldozer paid the price… :(

Enough said about that…

I popped a new can of coffee open this morning. It is actually in the old style of can and when cutting it open, the pressure pop just filled the air with the most wonderful aroma. We don’t have such sounds and smells like the old days very often. I remember the old days and that perfect smell of coffee as it was percolating and when you twisted the knob of a can opener to open a new can of coffee. Oh Yes…

Now if I could just find a percolator to brew some fresh coffee…

I think I will grab a second cup of coffee this morning and finish this post… coffee_16

Many commenters are terrible at being a decent human!

I have decided that if the comment sections of all websites in the world were removed, we would have a better world. People admit many times that they do not even read an article, they look at the title and comments, or they read the comments instead of the article and comment. Neither way is productive and neither way increases your knowledge of the subject being written about. In fact, comments are simply a tool to try to control, destroyed and or promote certain ideologies being presented in many articles…

People have become basic beasts in most of the comment sections on the internet. News sites have become battle grounds of hate, racism, control, lust, disgust, vitriol, overrun with vermin of all types. Once again a small portion of the populace and or trolling ruins things for all and a huge portion of this garbage in comments is money backed. Between bots and humans working full time at ascendancy of the internet. We have a very unpleasant place to search and just want peace at times…

Could you imagine reading an article on a news site and being able to say what you think and not have an onslaught of hate being tossed in your face. Try commenting negative against an issue that promotes LGBT and see what you get. You could simply say, “I do not believe being Gay is correct!”

If you are on a news site, you will be attacked and called every name in the book. It gets simply horrific to see what people will come back at you with…

I know all about it and I have been unmercifully attacked on this site over my feelings that being gay (homosexuals) is just not right in my mind, basically it involves the way we treat such issues in the media and on governmental levels and promotion of being homosexual in media and at governmental levels is wrong. Do what you want, but keep it out of my face and that is how I feel. I do not care what you do behind closed doors and I feel the same about heterosexuals. Sex is something that is great, but needs desecration. Just like Bruce Jenner; I do not care that he wants to be a woman! But good grief, do we have to have that fact he did what he did, plastered all over the world (everyday for years it seems,) as if it is something we should all be proud of and strive for? Why is it acceptable to, in my face, the fact that someone wants to be a woman? Who cares? Do it and shut up about it…

Oh and I had good friends in America who were gay, they did not push it at me and vice versa. I believe we should respect people and keep somethings to ourselves. My dad was gay (my dad has been dead a long time and he was gay in an era that could not accept it openly) and I am not, there goes that hereditary thingamabob theory all to hell…

Comments suck and we ruined them to try to control peoples ideas about what they read. I look at it this way; If you do not like what you see on Windows to Russia, then don’t come back. I do not force you to come here and I do not pay you to endure what I say. If you like what I say, then come back and sit a spell, but otherwise go somewhere that tells you what you want to hear. It is a free world and a big internet. You can find many sites that cater to your whims and they will be happy to let you tell the world what you think about even my site WtR…

Believe me plenty of forums and sites have spewed tons of hate at me and my wife over the years… (Even Boza gets hate mail at times!) Running a blog (10 years) as long as I have will open your eyes to some serious human issues as you see what goes on…

* * * * * * * * * *

Well I am done spouting about things for today. I have to get ready for Sveta, I do not want her to think that Boza and I are dirty grubby boy animals! Time to clean the house and I am sure Boza will straw boss with the best of them, as I clean…

Old Soviet DT 75 Bulldozer…

The Fish Village had broken their actual snowplow, but they had an Old Soviet Bulldozer waiting in the wings. A DT 75; The tractor has a 4 cylinder engine, it is a Volgograd model DT-75, or DT-750, and is one of the most popular Russian crawlers built. These things are everywhere in the countryside and still plowing and still moving earth. Yes they are old, but you use what you got…

Factory
– (VTZ)
Volgograd Built
– 1930
track
tractors
DT-75 Company
– “VgTZ”

But we now have an Old Soviet Bulldozer broken down at the top of the hill, by Vova’s home. It decided to have a rest and broke something…. or something human related happened…. It is old and was made in 1930 or so and the guys driving are old to…

I suspect the real reason it broke is because the guys plowing, had a few too many sips of warmth inducing drinks, that Vova supplied and driving the bulldozer back in the dark, may not work well. They had a UAZ 4×4 and went back in that. The bulldozer is waiting for them to come back and take her home… 😉

I am glad, for we do not need any trees tore down on the road back through the woods…
