Fish is in Dehydrator and coffee tidbits…

Coffee-iconIMG0940AThe dehydrator is full of fish and now it will take better than 24 hours to finish my jerky. This is after about four days soaking in super heavy salt brine, the outer room smells like the sea side by the way. Like that salty ocean… 😉

I started it yesterday afternoon, thus maybe by tomorrow morning it will be done. It is salty…

Yesterday; the monk was busy helping a crane truck driver from the Fish Farm and they moved the huge chunks of loose brick building sections of the church, to a better spot. The interior of the church is next to be dug out, then they will follow the tunnels, to the end of those tunnels exits. I see what has happened, they have found a much more elaborate underground system than they thought. I like it…

IMG0932AThought you might like a picture of the local police car from the Big Village. LADA Niva 4X4. He knocked on our door as I was trying to work on some websites of ours and Boza was barking to beat the band. We went out to see what he wanted and he was worried about Boza and if he was a killer or not. 🙂 I assured him that Boza was cool and then since I understood only part of what he wanted, due to terms I have never heard, I sent him to Vova…

He looked at me and shook his head at the thought of bothering Vova, he puttered around looking at twenty other things and then went up to see Vova. I realized that Vova can be a pain at times and watching the cop, made me think of the old days in America. When cops had to use finesse to deal with people and not use a gun as first line interrogation…

Vova is what you call a born and raised villager and lives in the house his parents built. Vova can also be a pain in the you know what to deal with. I know how to deal with Vova, but people like a Big Village cop does not want to deal with him unless necessary. The whole thing with the cop is about something was stolen from a home near the bottom of our village and they were out looking to talk to the owners, who reported the recent crime? I shook my head, for the owners have not been here for over a month now…

The cop was nice by the way and I think we have an insurance scam going, but; What do I know? Much more; What do I care?

chappiGoing to the Big Village today. I have to pick up Boza’s food. I feed Boza Chappi (not British Chappie) or Pedigree, both have a plant in Russia and thus they are able to continue to sell product in Russia. Chappi is winning the battle for Russian dogs hearts and Pedigree is becoming hard to get. Chappi is cheaper and better, Pedigree is finding itself sliding downhill in the battle for dog food dominance…

Besides, the Chappi is almost 5 rubles a hundred grams cheaper now than Pedigree and when you have a dog that eats a kilo a day, that adds up…
