Big Russian Village: Vova and I made it there and almost back…

Road Trip to Big Village…
Good Morning All!

Good Morning from Tiny Russian Village…

First things first…

I have compiled a version of the new Russian based Linux. Called Astra and it is simply the “Cat’s Meow”…

It is what I am running on now and it is stable, fast and is far from being done. I decided that using Windows was a fail fail proposition and what better Linux to use then the one that the Russian Gov. is developing…

Nuff said; It is Debian based and really the “Cat’s Meow!”

Vova and went to the Big Village. He had some very important paper work that could not wait and if it did not get done, he would be in trouble. One thing he had to do is renew his firearms license. Guns are big in Russia and most everyone I know has a weapon. Hunting is big time here, you just have to be registered. But they are well armed in Russia and that is something you do not realize, coming from America. Russians have that same freedom, just that they do not openly brag about weapon ownership. Smart is what I call that…

Vova was happy, Russia just increased the pension amount and he has ended up with almost a thousand rubles more a month. That made Vova smile…

It was a rough trip, we almost made it back. The Niva of his is buried in the valley, but we were close to home. Now it is snowing this morning and I hope we find the Niva in all the new snow. Sometimes it is seriously “winter” here in the Tiny Russian Village… 😉

Vova needs to go back Wednesday, but scuttlebutt’s, it may not happen…

Therefore, today is a read a book day, as the snow piles up two feet or more deep in front of the door. Boza has done his doggy business and is sleeping soundly. I have to fill the bird feeders and not put anything on the ground today. They will not find the food on the ground. But they like their feeders and I will put out some salo for the jay birds…

Have a nice day…
