Invasion of the mushrooms in the Tiny Russian Village…

The Tiny Russian Village is full of mushrooms. Not long ago we had the first crop of these monster mushrooms everywhere and now they are back in even more numbers. They seem to pop up over night and then a few days later are going away. The weather has been perfect for this variety of mushroom and they are invading us. If I stop posting? You will know that the mushrooms took over the the Tiny Russian Village and we have met our demise…

The problem is; If these mushrooms where the ones everyone likes to eat, then we would win the battle, but it seems that this mushroom, no one cares about and they flourish with no predator. Therefore, you can see these umbrellas all through the fields. Nothing but worms eat them and that is only when they start to rot from age…

I like them and think they are really cool…

indexYesterday, the birdbrains acted like a bunch of collage kids trying to squeeze into a phone booth. Well at least in my era they did such things. The bird feeder had a record number of birdbrains stuffed into it and I watched how they pushed all the seed out onto the ground and just looked out from their feeder. They finally decided to go to the ground and eat all that seed, but not before acting like a bunch of rejects…

It was so stupid to watch, that I finally started to laugh and instead of running away as they usually do. They all got quiet and stared at me. I stopped laughing and thought about the Alfred Hitchcock movie, “The Birds!”

I told Svetochka later on the phone, “If you do not hear from us for awhile, then maybe “The Birds,” ate us!”

Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!

Well….Sammy the Volga is in the shop!

She has gone to the doctor to get a new heart. Her engine was on its death bed and she needed a new one. The transplant is underway and will take three or four days. From what I am understanding, as per normal, they will pull the old engine and transmission and drop the newer one in. That is the easiest way and also assures a matched gearbox to the engine. That is the best way. Besides, our gearbox has showed signs of aging and needs replaced also. This kills two birds with one stone…

Seems strange to be in the Tiny Russian Village without our trusty Volga. She is part of the family!

America seems to be getting some flack tossed at them! This is what happens when you mettle into things you have no reason to mettle with and or if your reasons are execrable! That seems to help sway future desires for revenge to the positive side…

Thus, the terror mongering begins by the media and the politicians. Maybe they should admit where the issue comes from and looking into the mirror is the first place to start. If America terrorizes other countries, then expect retaliation, for many many years down the road. People who have families destroyed by the military complex of the US, will wait and get revenge and get revenge and get revenge…

Maybe, just maybe, we should have stopped our representatives from invading countries that we have no reason to be invading? And…..

Maybe we need to change how we look at the world. That is a good start…

wrong

Really the image above might seem to be funny, but when you live outside of the borders of the US, it does not seem so funny and the real issue is; Many Americans look at the world this way!

Did you know that there is a slew of legal movies on YouTube. Full length and if you stay with the foreign films with subtitles, you can find some seriously good movies. Movies that are fun to watch. Just do not mess with the Hollywood movies, they might jail your ass for life! But grab a Chinese movie and enjoy. Or grab a Bollywood movie and have a good time watching how movies use to be made…

If you are into Sci-Fi like I am. The animated movies all over YouTube are incredible. Quality is fantastic and it is amazing to see movies made from PlayStation, they are really good…

Millet – grab some millet and feed your birds. In Russia; millet is around 20 rubles a kilo. The birdbrains will love it and if you toss in some oatmeal flakes, they will go nuts. I also am going to try millet as a cooked product and if it works, will eat millet also. Boza says, “No Way!”

Well….winding down this article. Oh yes, I rebuilt the wood burning stove yesterday. Today I will fire it up and see if all is good. It is cold people! +2 this morning and I suspect frost this week. Gotta get ready…

Have a nice day!
