We made it and some coffee thoughts…

Our Volga!

Our Volga!

I will be honest. I did not think we were going to make it out of the village. It had snowed, rained, sleeted and rained a whole bunch more. The puddles on the village road looked more like the lakes filling on the fish farm and mud was deep, axle deep…

Sammy the Volga crawled through it all and even crawled out of the middle of a field of mud in pouring rain, for the road was worse than trying to cross a field. Either way was terrible, but, the field ended up the way that Sammy was able to keep digging and forced her way to the better road. About two hundred meters of grass and mud. Not fun, but bless Sammy’s heart, she made it…

Sammy is getting tired and she needs an upper engine rebuild. It is hard to believe that we have been driving her for six years now and she still tries to do the best she can. We have put a lot of kilometers on her and she had at the freezing of the odometer five years ago, 155,000 kilometers at least the second time around, before it died. She takes a licking and keeps on ticking…

The trip to and from the village is hard, but going to the village is much easier than coming from the village. For going you get the worse part over with; the dreaded Moscow death race. Come from the village, the dreaded Moscow death race is the last and most formidable part of the trip. When entering Moscow after hours of driving, the drivers in the big city just plain suck and are, as Svetochka puts it, “They are stupid!” Oh how right she is. As they cut you off, pull in front of you and slam on the breaks, drive in the wrong lane and or just plain simply are stupid as Sveta puts it… 😉

It also does not help that I am living in a peaceful village and not having to deal with these idiots all the time like I use to. I am not tuned to driving with them anymore. My biggest thing is pulling Vova’s Niva out of the mud and snow all winter…

I believe that Svetochka saw the need to get a few things done to our Volga. It is time this summer, before next winter, to get some major engine work done and a new rear axle. She has already called her son to get information about having a limited slip rear end installed and I have already got the steel pieces to weld the frame in a few weak spots. Then we have to take her in and have, most likely, a valve job done. I do not think just running the valves will do the job. The usage of propane has eaten the vales away over time and we actually are just idling on three cylinders. Running on 3 and a half is how I put it, but the vales are so worn in cylinder one, that at idle it does not fire…

Time to put up or shut up and I see the look on Sveta’s face. She loves her Sammy the Volga and after it made it out of a mud bath and drove home. Sveta was impressed. but worried at how she is starting to fair…

““Panama Papers” — a trove of 11.5 million leaked internal documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca…”

http://panamapapers.sueddeutsche.de/en/

I thought cool! Lets see how many western leaders and such are listed. Then as soon as I looked at the main news articles and realized that they simply forgot to mention virtually anything about the most corrupt people in the world and all in the list was western hated people. It became clear that this publication as another western driven propaganda issue to smack against mainly Putin and Russia, even though Putin had nothing, literally, to do with the whole damn thing…

And when I saw these names popping up on a regular bases: Panama Papers reporting team: Juliette Garside, Luke Harding, Holly Watt, David Pegg, Helena Bengtsson, Simon Bowers, Owen Gibson and Nick Hopkins: the haters of Putin and Russia…

I knew that this was crap of the diarrhea type and regurgitated stinky news just to attack the evil Russian Empire of death. Of course attacked by the angels of the western world and the ones who bring love into your life. The ones not mentioned in the report are there for your health and benefit…

What….no Americans mentioned here..?

Read between the lines on the articles where the Americans are not listed and you get the picture…The Sock Puppet Media has saved us the heartache of seeing the American names. Very considerate of them. Of course, they are protecting the kleptocracy governmental names of the innocent western countries…

Yessiree!

Russian said that they would be attacked in the media and yes; they are being made the brunt of this whole report mentioned above. Even as they say later in their article, Putin did nothing wrong and or Putin only had two billion dollars associated with his name? Friends! OMG, 2 billion dollars of almost able to associate money with Putin (Association is possible if you have issues with hating Russia and or Putin!) against trillions of dollars in America and the EU of corruption…

Oh and did not you know that Putin is literally dating all women on earth?

Putin is some manly man! Dating all women on earth and hiding from plain view and the western world, enough money to make him the richest man in the universe. What a manly man, Putin is…

Yessiree!
