Light Bulbs Incandescent…

Fluorescent Bulbs Hit a Wall of Grouchy People in Russia… With the exception of western based companies like Globus and such, the florescent light bulb that is so horrendous, both for finances and health is dying in Russia. Even Moscow has accepted incandescent bulbs as a necessity. I am very happy to see that happen…. Russian made incandescent light bulbs,…

One Belt – One Road, the eastern nightmare for the west…

Don’t Pack Your Christmas Tree Yet – Its Russian New Year…

Stop: While you are contemplating packing that Christmas tree away until next year.

Have to add something today: Cream Cheese…

When I came to Russia I could not find cream cheese… This was granted many years ago, but still no cream cheese for many years thereafter….if I did find it, it was extremely expensive and imported.

The first question will be about the multipolar world Russia has been talking about for more than ten years.

Honey I blew up the computer, so lets have coffee…

I tried to install a video card and normally that is not an issue, but with our motherboard on our desktop, it was an issue. I am not sure if it was me or the riser I installed, but something surged the motherboard and burned it out… Luckily we have a good laptop and that is what we are using…
