Things that Matter in Russia…

Everyone has different things that matter to them. Everyone has a different outlook on what is important. Everyone has a different take on life. I am no different than you, you, you or you! This is what I am thinking this morning as I sip my cup of hazelnut coffee and take my pills. These pills that are very important…

Wow, New Year and what hot weather in Moscow…

I am amazed and very happy for the end of the year weather wise in Moscow, Russia. It has been wonderful and not cold. It has been staying around freezing and no lower. It is muddy, but a little mud is a blessing in place of the -20 below zero normal weather. I will not complain and will smile as…

Sveta and I walk to buy food…

Buy meat off the truck in our housing area… Above… Sputnik! That is what our town is famous for… The market has all the meats… The market has all the dairies… Sveta and I took a walk and since I have been feeling better (I think due to a penicillin taking session, that I am doing now!), we took a…

Russia: What a Terrorist Attack Looks Like…

Merry Christmas 2013: from Windows to Russia…

Sveta, Boza and I would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas western style… I made Sveta’s favorite dessert in the world today, Pumpkin Pie. It is cooling as I type this, it is in the window sill in the kitchen. We will also have a very Russian type entree, being Salt Salmon and black bread. Russians love their salmon…

Mikheil Saakashvili Molds Minds at Tufts’ Fletcher School…

My words came true and now the US has put Sassy (Saakashvili) to work, shaping young/old minds into a brainless mass of mush. Sassy disappeared from Georgia (Smart move on his part, since his mouth would have him hung!), then appeared months later in the US. He has been given his payoff job for a job done, if not really…
