In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

Coffee Time snowing and okay temperatures…

-11 this morning. Nice temperatures, almost perfect to walk around, except it is snowing and snowing and snowing. Oh well, not everything is perfect..

UK got snookered and they all fell in it….

Maybe since it will thaw quickly, stay home a few days, instead of trying to get on with life in chaos!

I am crossing my fingers here in Moscow that they are telling the truth and in a few weeks we will start to see at least 0 degrees during the day. But, the long term shows below freezing for the whole next month. Lets hope some warm weather before April…

Yesterday I watched a giant asphalt and concrete digging machine, struggle big time with layers of compacted ice two to three feet thick. It dawned on me that the road surface was almost a meter below the surface of ice in places. Then Svetochka and I walking around in the balmy -12 degrees, found a perfect spot that showed a walkway two feet under the ice. As we steeped up and kept walking, I found it amazing how the masses of humans compact snow fall after snow fall into these sheets of ice a meter thick at times…

Snow Getting Deep, “Yonder Here in Russia…”

I walked through a gate the other day, a gate that in the summer, I just have to bend my head down a little bit to get through. I had to get on my knees and crawl through that gate. Of course the gate is stuck wide open and will be for sometime yet….The area is heavily traveled by humans & dogs and all the winter snow has been compacted…

Therefore, we are happy because the temperatures are decent and getting soft at -10 degrees. We even got out yesterday and went to the movie theater. Saw a Russian movie called, ICE (Лёд)…

Cost us 240 rubles for two tickets and it was well worth seeing. Of course, Svetochka loved that it was a love story, but she was not as happy that they tried to make a musical out of it at times. But this grouchy bear enjoyed it and had no problem following the story, for it was in 100% Russian. Does that mean I have been in Russia too long? I can enjoy their movies!


The dog hair is disappearing as I vacuum and clean. No longer does it appear as fast as I clean it up and that is sad! Boza is missed by Svetochka and I. Everyday, I am reminded of him by such little things. We have moved forward, but life still is missing that sweet little doggy, who loved us unconditionally…
