Winter is Great this Year and Coffee

Coffee-iconFor the first time since I have been in Russia, the snow, ice, and temperatures are decent for a winter. A wonderful, blessed winter with fantastic weather and the snow and ice are melting away. This is fantastic, for normally we are walking on a meter of solid ice, that puts your heads into the tree limbs all winter long. I have talked before about how people snap limbs off way up into the tree, as the ice gets deeper and deeper. You either do that or get your eyes poked with small limbs, that are normally way above our heads…

Seeing a bare sidewalk in a Russian winter is akin to seeing Santa at Christmas, we know he is there, we just can not see him…

Winter is still good…

Yes, I see prices going up, but only on things that do not matter. I bought two loaves of bread today, at a cost of 12.6 rubles each. I bought white bread and froze one loaf. The black bread, which I did not buy, was 14.8 rubles each and they are much bigger heavier loaves than the white, as they always are…

Russian made products are decent price and as expected, foreign-made items are much higher. The catch 22 for the west is that Russia is making everything it needs and we lack nothing, due to internal production. This is what it is all about and it is what the west has no idea about. Russia is not the west and the west does not understand Russians…

Broommilk_truckHow do you sanction a people who make their own brooms from tree limbs and twigs?

Or how do you sanction people who buy anything from the back of a truck, including fresh meat?

Or how do you sanction people who buy milk from the milk truck and see that as the best?

How do you sanction a people who do not expect anyone to help them and baby them?

winterToday, Sveta, through a wonderful company called Ozon.ru, who sells products in Russia for years now. Just like Amazon in America, ordered me a new 7 inch tablet computer. I had a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and it has just about quit working. It has been a piece of you know what since buying it, but it is what I got. I was sucked in by the hype surrounding Samsuck products and bought a Tab 2…

This time after much studying, I am going to buy a product made by Senkatel… (http://maximus4u.com/content/11-maximus-s1)
