Coffee is thought provoking…

I have desired a different diet drink in Russia. Ten years I have desired something other than a diet cola…

Well here it is, “Diet Dr. Pepper!”

I see lots of cars running around Moscow with Putin on them. Interesting and this car is sitting outside in our parking lot. I also see lots of T-Shirts, coats and hats with Putin on them. Kinda a craze right now…

Putin has real support in Russia, not like the marginal support that most western leaders get. I have thought about this happening and realize that western leaders for the most part do not understand the concept that the people are actually behind someone and likes their leader…

Maybe it is time for western leaders to change how they lead?

Yesterday I got sick. 38.8 temperature and Sveta stayed home and tried to make me well? I feel much better today and Boza and I have walked twice. Sveta walked Boza yesterday and that made a big difference for me…

Today I will walk to the store and get chicken necks to cook for Boza. They are dirt cheap and he loves them. I like them also and they make a great soup. Boza eats the necks, I eat the broth. Win Win for all…

imagesCoffee is cheap now. As is the price of most foods here in Russia. Prices are dropping and it is starting to show on the total price as you buy stuff. What a blessing. It never was that bad, but anytime prices drop, it is a good thing for us average people…

I will go to our dollar store equivalent today. They have really good coffee at 50 rubles per 100g. That my friend is a good deal and I will stock up. Coffee is one of those things that the price can rocket at any second. Happens all over the world and when the price is right, “Get It!”

White Bread 15 rubles a loaf…
Eggs for 10 in carton – 39 rubles…
Milk 29 rubles a liter…
Whole Chickens off a truck- 68 rubles a kilo…
Flour Tortillas – 4 pack – 25 rubles…
50 Black Tea bags in a box – 25 rubles…

Lets put it this way; 100 rubles ($1.60) will buy you many meals…

Pregnant women, multiple children families and happy families…

Everywhere is a mother pushing a stroller and the playgrounds are full of little monkeys kids. It has become a explosion to be exact. The population is growing in Russia and from what I am seeing, Russians have taking the declining population issue seriously and working day and night to reverse the trend… 😉

Interesting to see this happening…

There is a quandary that I keep coming back to!

Out of one side of Americas face, they spout, Russia – “doesn’t make anything

Then out of the other side of the face or is it “out the ass?” They say, “Russia has released the first image of its new nuclear missile, a weapon so powerful that it could wipe out nearly all of the United Kingdom or France.”

My quandary is!

If Russia does not make anything? Then where does all the food in the stores come from, the weapons of mass destruction come from, the advanced defensive weapons, the equipment, tools and you name it? Russia makes stuff. Damn good stuff and other than the tiny exception of not finding peppermint candy in Russia. I see most everything else… 😉

Okay! I admit China makes a bunch of stuff, but, much and actually most tech is from Russia in the first place. China has been given massive amounts of defensive tech to develop defensive weapons with and all in conjunction with Russia. Just like India has done the same…

But, if Russia does not make anything?

What the hell is everyone so worried about Russia for?

They do not make a damn thing! They are just a gas station, They are poor, They are devastated, They are dictated to death and even North Korea has a better life than Russians! ~SARC~

Believe you me! Russia makes things and they make extremely high quality things, At a reasonable price and much less waste than we are use to in America. The big thing Russia makes?

Defense Weaponry to counter the Western Empire!

Yes and one last thing…

Life is actually very good here in Russia. I cover Russia from the Tiny Russian Village to the Huge City of Moscow and I find life good, safe, happy and full of friendly intelligent people…
