Russian Thoughts With a Cup of Coffee…

Been very busy and have a lot of irons in the fire. Those are my thoughts this morning while I work an article for Windows to Russia into the schedule…

So I am sipping that cup of coffee and this time the coffee is from Belarus. I found a very good cheap coffee. It is full flavored and does not have any bitter after taste. It is 100% Colombian coffee and is processed (roasted) and packaged in Belarus. Good coffee…

A few things that are happening in our part of the world:

We just had a Globus Super Store from Germany, opened recently within two blocks of our home and what a store it is. It has several restaurants and a fast food place associated with it and it is just like having a Walmart available any time of the day. Now I see why Walmart is struggling to get into the Russian market. Everyone else beat them here… 🙂

According to the information available, from the marketing news. The store was built in an area that accommodates 350,000 people within walking distance to the store. 500,000 with in a short 10 to 15 minute drive. I think that this is enough people to keep the store going and to be honest, I think they understated the amount of people in the area. I would say closer to a million people will have easy access to this store. It is located that good and Sveta and I can walk just two blocks and we are at this store…

I also found very very cheap Russian processed coffee in this store and will try it out soon…

It is amazing how different the temperature is from Tunisia to Moscow and Sveta and I are wishing to be running around Tunisia again. It is so cold here and has snowed several times since we have been back…

Speaking of being back, Sveta and I went and saw the Broadway type play called Little Mermaid at a theater downtown Moscow. It was very good and we got free tickets through Svetas work Union, as they have to do something for all the monthly union fees that they collect and never have to pay out to anyone. Yes I was shocked when I found out that unions are a huge part of the Russian work force. Sveta tried to explain that they are left over from the Soviet times. As you see I tried to get a picture of the closing curtain call…

We also went to see a Shaolin Monk Show and it was very very good. Could not get any pictures of that…

Oh a small side note: If you believe even one iota of anything about this Petraeus issue, which now has garnered another victim in John Allen, then you are full of hogwash. Any country that allows a standing president as Clinton was to escape the indiscretions that he performed and these indiscretions were actually proven beyond a Shadow of a doubt as being true, to continue as if nothing happened. Is a country that should care less what Petraeus has done. The only difference is that the powers to be want Petraeus silenced and discredited. The fact that I think Bill Clinton is Dingle Berries, also means that I think Petraeus is the same form of crap. But what is good for one, is good for the other and to have a dual set of standards is the main issue and is wrong…

Well with that said, lets move on to something else…

I do have to say that all the petitions to secede are really cool and I hope that things get going on this issue. I see around 25 states have put forth petitions. Louisiana has already gotten their signatures and the rest are catching up. I have always been a believer that the states need to be totally separate governments and the federal government is to be very very very tiny. Oops – did I say that? Guess I better be looking up in the sky for a drone to terminate me at any moment… 🙁

Yes these issues in America are a favorite with Russians right now. Nothing like the almighty America to show her weak side while she continues to badmouth and blow up the world. It just makes Russians smile when they see the truth being laid out for all to see. Russians are use to the truth about Russia being exposed, but Americans are not use to American undergarments being shown to the world…

A final thing that I am think about!

People with any brains need to really do some thinking’s about the future of America. (Or as one Canadian yelled at me. It is not America it is the USA or United States (US) I live in America and so do you, but you live in the US and I live in Canada…) Things are getting rough and as fast as the system is collapsing, it is definitely sinking faster than the Titanic sank and with all the free drinks and goodies being given out, you will not realize that your head is underwater until it is too late. Blub blub blub…

Oh and a little tidbit of information: Globus crushed the McDonald’s that tried to open nearby us. I never thought I would see that happen, but McDonald’s was not allowed to open, when Globus dictated the rules. Globus has a fast food area inside the store. Hmm…

Cool…
