I was giggling because I remembered how I took part in the «Бессмертный полк». I was walking for 2 hours under heavy rain and hail, lightnings were here and there across the sky. Wind was also strong, it was like I'm under fire or take part in a weird attraction. I was lucky I didn't catch cold, because I went to the warm bathroom at home and we had some whiskey. Nothing to cheer about but since I was in a good company with my friends and relatives it was kinda fun.)

Yep, I am absolutely sure he was pro-Putin. I was listening to him on daily basis for more than a year. He supported Putin's actions in Ukraine. He was critical of Putin 19 years ago before Putin got real power, than Dorenko made a U-turn. If you call Dorenko anti-Putin, you can call Soloviev and Kiselev anti-Putin too

> In any case, let me tell you about Daily Mail. Daily Mail is a very popular paper here, but verges on yellow tabloid press like Sun, Mirror, etc. This is not like the Telegraph, the Guardian, the Independent, the Times. Daily Mail is renowned for trying to sniff out some «sensational» news, they like to shock, etc, which makes an entertaining read. It is not the Times or anything like that, not to be relied on seriously, not considered politically switched on or in any way competent. What they are good at is covering the lives of celebrities and washing their dirty linen in public and also covering the Royal family affairs, which they are somewhat better at doing. The thing about Daily Mail is they have a very large circulation and are read by the middle classes and even the upper classes (who will never admit to it in public, it is their «guilty pleasure»). But yeah — in terms of covering political events of any kind, don't expect anything but cheapish sensationalist propaganda.

Hi

The better way of putting your little story is this:

I remember walking for 2 hours in heavy downpour and strong gale with lightening striking across the sky here and there. It felt like being caught in the cross fire. In fact, the experience was so surreal, it reminded me of a movie adventure.

I have been to Venice before, but differently, you know. It is one thing when you are young and free and poor going somewhere and quite another, when you have kids, who you have to educate around the world, show them things- visiting all sorts of museums, etc. You then start learning yourself, suddenly. I had actually never been to Murano (before this last visit) , never seen the glass making process in my life — even though I have been to Venice multiple times, you know.

Btw, do you like cats? As for me they are cute but in fact they are fluffy little bastards (with some exceptions to this rule). We have a cat who lives on the ground floor. She is kind and never scratches people

I absolutely love cats. I love everything about them. I had so many cats in my life, this is the picture of Merlin — our cat, he passed away a few years ago when he was nearly 14 years old. He was my favourite cat of all time


We have Fifi now, she is also a great cat, but I miss Merlin so much. I only got Fifi cause I promised my daughter I would get another cat if she gets two Distinctions in ballet, which she did at the time. Merlin was with me and Jon for years, I miss him.

I deleted my pic of Merlin, as it makes me sad, you know — cause he is no longer with us. The cat in your pic is an ordinary tabby, they call mongrel stripy common cats like this «a tabby cat» (not to confuse with «tubby» — which means «fat»). A lot of people prefer them to bred cats with pedigrees, cause they are considered very kind and clever and make great pets. When it came to us getting another cat, after Merlin — I couldn't bring myself to get another British shorthair blue, and I wanted to get a Bengal. They are strikingly beautiful cats, just amazing looking and quite pricey too — over a grand sterling












But there were none around at the time, one breeder told me they were expecting a litter of kittens in a couple of months and my daughter didn't wanna wait. You know what kids are like, they want everything yesterday (meaning — they want everything quickly), like my husband says «instant gratification culture». And her friend at school's cat had a litter and she chose a black cat — she said «It is my cat, Mom, not yours and this is my choice and this is what I want.» I went «Well, yeah, you are right, it is for you, have what you want.» Fifi is a mongrel as well — a cross between Burmese and a tabby. But she is a beautiful little cat, very gracious, like a miniature panther. I will put out the pics at some point, it is just hard to take a good pic of her cause she is constantly on the move.

<nobr>P. S.</nobr> Cats don't scratch or bite out of spite, they are not spiteful animals, they just wanna play sometimes and other times — they are letting you know that they don't like what you are doing. The tell- tale sign of a cat being annoyed is when she starts swinging her tail up and down. After that — if you don't stop doing what you are doing (for example, stroking it when it doesn't want you to, etc.) — it can then retaliate by biting or scratching.
