What is it with Americans – Seriously

Looking at news from America is like looking at Three Ring Circus, with a Mac Truck driving across all the rings as the clowns and animals do their acts. Nothing makes sense and nothing holds to a certain moral structure or standards… We have a Clinton running for democratic president, that everyone knows she is the worse thing since rotten…

Going to try to get out again…

Sveta says it is good for me and learning patience is a virtue. But Big Bear does not like being told what to do, even if it is Mother Nature doing the telling. Most of my issues are not planning ahead. No skis, no snowshoes and such. I have good food for over a month and can stretch it for…

Boza and I walking for our health…

Here comes the sun… Boza and I simply get tough and force or way through to thin areas of snow. The bell tower is one of those areas and Boza and I can stand in awe at how beautiful the world is from the top of the hill. This morning we had a rare occurrence and I just happened to…

I wonder at times…

This morning, not so bright, but very early. Boza and I got up and walked around all the paths that I have cut. I specifically cut paths to the four big trees in our front yard and Boza appreciates that effort as he visits each tree several times a day and does his doggy business. Boza ran his paths and…

I tried could not make it…

It snowed a foot last night and drifted so deep in places that there simply was no way to get out from the village, much less get around the village. Therefore, I cleaned snow until I could not move and at the same time, cut a new path to Vova’s… I zigged and zagged until I found the shallowest areas.…

Getting geared up to walk to the market…

I decided that I will walk to Sysoi and get supplies. Vova is out of cigarettes and such and I need to walk and think and maybe take pictures. The temperature has warmed up to -2 or so and I will leave Boza home. The snow is too deep for Boza and getting deeper as I write this. The road…

Snow is Winning…

The Fish Village is trying to plow the road. The snow is too deep and too heavy at this point. Though from the picture they have the small bulldozer up and running and that can make it without issues. The problem is the bulldozer does not push snow to one side, it just piles up deeper and deeper in front…

Getting thinner…

I suspect that I weigh under 115 kilos by now. I can’t prove it yet, but I can see it and Vova has noticed it. I think for the first time in a whole bunch of years, I am below 250 lbs. My goal is 225 (actually 100 kilos) and then level out to stabilize. Then I will see how…
