Time to get Sammy the Volga happy…

Today and tomorrow, since the sun is actually shining part of the time, I will remove our Volga’s clutch master calendar and replace it. I will take my time and not get too cold. It is still bitter cold outside…. -1 this morning…


I have to get to the Tiny Russian Village. It is time to make sure the winter did not destroy the homes and get the gardens ready. This year, I want to fertilize the apple trees before summer hits…

I also have to trim and the big job that has to be done….start setting 100 fence posts to draw a new fence upon. I decided, since there is a metal shop in the Big Village, I will set steel fence posts in concrete/?. Then a metal garden fencing…

Since I have a welder, I will install a metal top cap and pipe caps to keep the rain out. The question mark above is that I am thinking about maybe a foam setting for the fence posts. I have been studying about a new way to set posts. We will see. If I can get the foam to mix myself and the cost is as good as cement then I will try…

The idea is that since we have extremely sandy soil, I need to spread the support out wider at the bottom. It is a real problem with thinner posts…

If I can get Sveta’s mother’s home done, then next year I will re fence our new place…


Cool a new water spot nearer to our home…

It is not up and running yet, but it is near my favorite grocery store and just a good spot in general…

Lots of things like that always around the area…

This morning I watched people line up and get there raw milk. The individual who sells the milk has been allowed to set up right at the front door of a huge flat building. This is good and from what I can tell, he sells out of all his product everyday…

They sell cottage cheese, milk, sour cream, sweet cottage cheese and lots of other stuff…

It is nice here in Russia, you can feel safe buying what you want and doing what you want…

My only thought is, because of my background from America…

When will the government shut all this freedom down?

I hope never, the Russians deserve freedom, not servitude…


Outside I go, I hear Sammy calling and she is ready to get on the road again…

China now is reaching the tipping point…

‘Mr Pompeo, you can stop’: China hits back at criticism over Latin America | South China Morning Post

China’s foreign ministry has hit back at criticism from US Secretary of State
Mike Pompeo over the country’s activities in Latin America, urging the top US diplomat to watch his words.

Ministry spokesman Lu Kang on Monday responded angrily to Pompeo’s remarks, saying he was spreading lies about China. Speaking during a four-nation tour of Latin America last week, Pompeo said Chinese financial intervention in Venezuela had “helped destroy” the country and called on leaders in the region to see who their “true friend” was.

Lu, during a regular press briefing, said the US secretary of state had “wantonly slandered” China’s relations with Latin America.

“For some time, some US politicians have been carrying the same version, the same script of slandering China all over the world, and fanning the flames and sowing discord everywhere,” Lu said.

“The words and deeds are despicable. But lies are lies, even if you say it a thousand times, they are still lies. Mr Pompeo, you can stop,” the spokesman said.
