I still find that broom making is interesting, it is Russian.

Knowing how to get by and make things in life is part of survival of that life…

The most common broom you will find just about anywhere in Russia is a broom made from tree limbs. Brush type trees growing wild are the best. I watch as they cut limbs from stumps, trying to growing after the tree is cut down. They have certain trees they use that seem to make the best brooms…

It is the Russian way and they all have factory made brooms. They just do not like to use them…

I remember years ago an American man griping to me about his new Russian/Ukraine wife. He bought her tons of special newfangled cleaning stuff and she refused to use anything but what she was use to and made herself, she even cleaned the floor on her knees….it broke them up as a couple. Sad really, she new the best way to do things and did it…

It is interesting to see how many times they use one handle from a factory made broom and keep that broom handle in use for many years. It also cleans up scrub branches and puts them to use. Instead of tossing them into the dumpsters…

This is and that is Russia…and that is why when the %$#* hits the fan. They will survive and meany will not…
