I can walk again and other thoughts…

CaptureLong morning and Vova once again keeps things interesting. Vova went to Majara to chase a woman he knows there. He knew better and he admits it this morning. But we guys are kinda stupid at times and his stupidity (or little brain as we call it,) got him buried deep in the snow…

I pulled the battery from the Volga of ours and we got the big 4×4 going at Vova’s. The 4×4 I wished I owned and off we went to pull out a LADA Niva that found itself over its head in snow. The big 4×4 is an animal and I am still yet to understand why anyone would want a small Niva, when you have a big boy waiting patiently to do the job? I have talked about this truck in the past…

Yup…

Then he got it (LADA Niva) stuck again and he had to get someone with a huge tractor to get it out, for this time he slid into a ten foot drift of snow… 🙂

This is the original start of the article:

This morning I was walking Boza and thinking about what I said to Sveta yesterday. It was a thought that was building in me for awhile now and yesterday, it blossomed inside of my brain…

I can walk!

Okay to be fair, I have always walked or better yet, limped and limped slightly (varying on the day) for at least thirty plus years. I had serious injuries at an earlier time in my life, between massive football injuries and a few more war time injuries on top of that and I spent my life in more pain than anyone should endure. Every step was like stepping on a knife blade and or someone driving nails into my legs in various spots…

It was life and that was the way it was. I refused pain killers and decided that pain is to be lived with and walking is over rated anyway. so I spent the brunt of my life slightly limping and wishing to cut off my legs at times. I slept in pain, I walked in pain and I dreamed of constant pain. It is hard to imaging life without that pain, at least at one time it was…

Not walking made me gain weight and that just aggravated the situation. The more weight I gained, the less I did, the more I hurt the more I ate and so on and so on. Heart attacks, prescriptions and other tidbits lined up to make things worse and never better. Many times a vicious circle that seems to be unbreakable…

Then I lived and live now in the Tiny Russian Village. A place with sandy forgiving soil, a monastery of ancient times, fresh clean air, pure drinking water and no chemicals added to anything. I started to heal…

I was walking yesterday and after about a three hour walk, I realized that I was walking straight, steady and no limp. No Limp! That meant no pain, no weakness and no all night pain. I use to sit up half the nights and rub my legs just to get relief. No more…

I can walk again…. And I definitely thank God for that, then I thank Sveta for allowing me into her life and once again, I thank God for that also. Svetochka is the heaven in my life and the Tiny Russian Village is my assuage of life…

I am worried about something:

Technology and war equipment is advancing much faster than our brains can comprehend. This is a sign of what I have talked about in the past; computers are creating what we are not able to create and thus, we are developing things that will soon control us and not us them…

I am watching Russia, US and China develop weapons that could only be described as SciFi and we push buttons on these devices and find that they kill very very well. We can everyday get farther from the battlefield and kill more people without meeting those people head to head or eye to eye. The human aspect is being taken out of this situation and war will soon be something akin to a God raining death from above, below and from within and he is not a benevolent God…

War is inhumane enough when you have to look in the eyes of who you kill, but when they are a little dot on a computer screen and you have the button to kill, it becomes easy to kill. Except, no one but the owners of these devices has “God Mode” as many computer game cheats have…

Can anyone say, “Skynet!” For one day we will allow the computers to do it all. For we are just human and humans as we all know, are lazy…

This Flint lead pipe issue is amazing. We spent many years ago tearing pipes out of buildings and redoing water systems all over America. We and I can honestly say, I was in on some major work in Missouri and we had people breathing down our necks to get all the lead pipes out and do it right. It was terrible work and we had no choice but to take care of the issue. Peoples lives and health were at risk…

Do we live in a world of ignorance and why do we have such variances in degrees of completion and why do we allow laws to change, such as in 2001 the government changed how tap water was to be treated and we knew then that we caused a lead issue. So why was the lead pipes left to rot in so many places?

It also makes me think of the asbestos issue and it seems that we will never learn and always allow the god dollar ($) to rule…

This link is amazing to me. I am someone who saw the issue first hand many years ago and now we act like it will all be okay! In a year or so, >>> Health be damned… <<< Anyone questioning why these pipes are still all in the ground and being used? Instead of fixing many years after the fact, it was suppose to be fixed…
