Thanks. You are right about the risks. My new potential employer is a US company working in Russia. Taking into consideration US-Russia relations it seems very risky. So I won't be really disappointed if it doesn't materialize.

She is Georgian. Don't think I'm racist or smth like that, but I think women of southern nations mature earlier but later they look older compared to Slavic women.

You are not being a racist. But the climate also has something to do with it. In England the climate is very mild, there are no harsh winters (well, in the South of England), the climate is very moist and there is little sun — comparative to other places. The sun is the single biggest aging factor for the skin, as well as harsh changes in temperatures around the year. I am talking about the South of England of course, where the temperatures are very steady and mild throughout the year . All the year round it is well above 0 C. For example right now — it is 12C in London. And there is less pollution as 48% of London is green land. In general in England — there is a lot of green land.
But the sun is a major factor. For example, if you compare women — white anglo saxon women who come to England from Australia or South Africa — they look a decade older than their English counterparts. It is true, I see it all the time myself. Their skin is like leather compared to those who have lived in England all their lives, or in Ireland. It is true, I am not lying.
When we go abroad, my husband is crazy about literally slathering all our kids in factor 50 sun tan lotion and they wear factor 50 all covering swim suits. The first hour on the beach is horrible cause the kids are screaming, cause they hate such strong sun tan lotion. None of us ever get a tan when we go abroad. But he keeps telling me to do it even on cloudy summer days here and I do it. They also add factor 50 sun tan lotion to all the cosmetics here — like foundation creams, etc.

I agree in general, but if we speak about Eteri, it's not about the climate. She lived in the US for many years and survived a terror attack there. People say it wasn't easy for her. She even gave Evgenia a program dedicated to victims of terror attacks, here it is. Probably, most controversial ladies free program ever.


Also, Eteri's daughter is half deaf, she has problems with hearing other people. That was also reflected in one of Evgenia's programs. Look at the beginning of her 2016 free skate program, she covers her ears and in that moment the music sounds quiet


And also Eteri lost her mother this month. No surprise she looks older than usual.

Look at Vogue photo made when Evgenia and Alina were preparing for the Olympics. I know it's a professional photo, probably photoshopped but still

OMG, remember that cute little puppy named Masaru? Japan gave her to Alina as a gift.
It became so big

Some covers





Original


I think you won't prefer redhead girl's cover this time
But may be I'm wrong. As for me Jillian Aversa understands this piece of music better. I don't feel sorrow in Alina Gingertail cover (it should be there).

On the other hand I like Alina's version of «Witcher wild hunt» more, it sounds more authentic

You got me all wrong. I was not trying to say she looks old for her age or older than usual, I don't even know how she usually looks. Why do people get me wrong so much on this forum? Jesus. I actually said she looked very well for her age, she is an impressive looking lady. It is just you said she was 45, I just turned 44 this July gone — so couldn't help comparing myself to her cause the age is similar and I genuinely look a lot younger. But then again — it is just me. I am not being vain or anything, but people genuinely get surprised here when I tell them how old I am (just people you meet, etc.) I get blokes who are much younger than me trying to chat me up in a pub sometimes and stuff, customers who are younger trying to offer me a dinner date or something and if someone gets too persistent, I lose it (get irritated) and say something like «Give it a rest, I am 44, married and have 3 kids, it's never gonna happen.» And you can see a genuine disbelief on the other side (I can tell when people here mean it or not, I have lived here for too long). It is just you brought up the subject and it is quite interesting to me. Because I think about it sometimes you know. I have a mate at work, we have known each other for a very long time, we worked together before I gave up work to give birth and stay with my kids — he is like an old time friend — my friend, but now our family friend as well (he was actually the one who offered me the job I am in at the moment, when I was ready to go back to work.) He has a family of his own now as well, we ended up working together again and we talk about this «age thing» sometimes. Thing is — he is going through this «mid life crisis», cause he is a very good looking man, and now feels he is getting old. (Back in the day all the girls in the office were after him, but it is the same now I am sure- he is just as good looking, it is just we don't have any girls in the office apart from me and another part time female colleague). Sometimes when we go out with workmates for a drink in a pub, when people get a bit pissed, they start talking and stuff. And he says things like «You know — the other day I had to use the Tube (that's London slang for „Metro“) and people seem so young around, everyone seems younger looking than me». And I usually say to him things like «You know, you still look great, don't be silly — you are just going through a mid life crisis». And he says that I wouldn't know what that is about as I look the same as I did 15 years ago. To be honest — to me he still doesn't look that different, apart from the fact that he has some more grey hair and a couple of lines here and there on his face.
It is just — you brought up the subject and I wonder sometimes — why some people age differently than others (I didn't mean this figure skating coach). It is just that — really — when people are in their 20s — they all seem kind of the same, in their 30s there are differences in how people of the same age can look and when you get to your 40s — the differences can be immense. So I was wondering — what is that to do with? Genes? Lifestyle? Climate? Etc.
You mentioned sexual maturity at an earlier age in southern nations. Maybe that has something to do with it. I matured quite late, my puberty started at 14, whereas some girls started their puberty age at 9 or ten. It is a fascinating subject.

In any case, this lady looks great, very glam, especially in the Vogue photo. And you can see the fire in her eyes. She has obviously been through a lot, she has lived a great and varied life, had her fair share of grief and trouble. And people like that are usually very strong and driven, and she is obviously doing great at what she loves doing — this figure skating coaching thing. She does look like a very strong character and she looks amazing.

He is bigger in size, but still looks like a cheeky little pup. What a lovely dog. I bet Alena doesn't get much time to spend with him, busy with skating and all that. I must admit, I prefer cats as pets. I don't know why. At one point me and John (my husband) had a puppy — it was a Scottish Terrier — Scotty, he got it for me — this was embarrassing, as at the time I moved to a flat, away from my first husband whilst still being married — it is a long story. Anyway, neither of us had much time to spend with the dog, he was with dog walkers for the most part of the day and he bit a little kid in the street or something (attacked a child whilst being walked) . The police were called, they wanted to put him down, but we got in touch with the breeder (who he bought him from) and she took him away and he went to live on a farm after, on the seaside in Cornwall (still there I believe — last time we called her was ages ago — just to make sure he is OK). It is just that dogs need training and stuff and lots of attention, and I wasn't capable of that at the time. With cats it is different — they kind of take care of themselves. Our Fifi (my daughter's cat) is very happy going in and out as she pleases through the cat flap and she is just a great pet.

They are all nice tracks and covers. I didn't listen to all of them, just bits of it. I am so tired at the moment, there is a lot going on at work and home. I probably won't be around on the forum that much soon.

By the way, you know — there's gonna be a debate on the telly May v Corbyn on the 9th of December — that is two days before the crucial Commons vote on the deal. May has never had any TV debates here, she didn't want to have one with Corbyn before the General Election 2017. If you think about it — telly debates are there to get the public on your side about some issue. The public doesn't have anything to do with the Commons vote — we are talking about the MPs voting for / or against the Deal. So people here are saying that she is already kind of preparing for another General Election, as it is clear that the MPs will vote the deal down. No one knows what is gonna happen, it is so weird.

I heard everybody hates Corbyn (I'm exaggerating a bit of course). May be she is trying to raise her ratings by going to a debate with him?

It's a bit different here than in Russia to be honest. PMs and Party Leaders are not as strong as they are in Russia, it is truly party politics here. Labour Party is just as complicated and varied as the Tories. Noone hates Corbyn more than perhaps some wings in his own Party — their political colours range from let's say — lightweight Communists (red Corbyn and his gang) to socialists and to Blairites — the establishment people, who are not that different from the central Tories. Corbyn has a shit personality, but at the moment May is hated more than anyone in the country. Look at the articles that the Telegraph (the main Tory paper) is coming up with at the moment for example

MPs 'will vote down Theresa May's Brexit deal — then go into bat against EU'

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/12/01/...

No deal is now the only option left — and we must respond by liberalising our economy

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/12/01/...

The dishonest and duplicitous Mrs May is the Cardinal Wolsey of our time

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/12/01/...

Telegraph News Politics
However Brexit ends, May's stitch-up will corrode trust in democracy for decades to come


https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/12/01/...

People here don't make their judgements just based on the personality of the PM, they don't mobilize behind the «leader» like they do in Russia, last time it happened was probably in the times of the WW2 and Churchill, even during Thatcher times it was not like that. It is a state of constant chaos here in terms of politics, but people are used to it and somehow it works. It is hard to explain really.

Her ratings are on the floor and by going on the telly to defend the deal that everyone seems to hate from both camps — Remain and Leave- what will she achieve?. In any case, in two days prior to the vote — any changes in her rating with the public won't have a chance to have a meaningful impact on the Commons vote, we are talking two days before the vote. None of it makes any sense to be honest.
