Dobriy utra. Gospod velik i ya rad sluzhit emy!
Good morning. The Lord is great and I’m happy to be serving Him!

We have entered the middle days of summer and I love it! These temps (18ºC - 30ºC) are “Garden of Eden” temperatures. They are beautiful days on which to work, swim, play volleyball, camp, etc. etc… About the only negative I can think of is driving around in an overheating vehicle in Kiev traffic (which we did yesterday). We turned the heater on full-blast and just managed to keep the temps in the radiator below 100º.

The family is fine.

Strike a Light - May 08 news letter

[img_assist|nid=50|title=|desc=|link=node|align=right|width=150|height=106]Strike a light! Where did the last few months go! We celebrated New Year’s a couple of weeks ago, didn’t we? Without pontificating too much about how time has flown by, I must say that my age must surely be influencing the speed of time! Is there another explanation?

Greetings during this celebratory season!

Hi, and greetings to you during this celebratory season! We are well, enjoying life’s challenges and… right now, cold to the bone! I’ve been outside today and what with the wind blowing and the temperatures hovering around 0ºC, shivers are the go! The snow is beautiful though!!! Full update in the attachment below.

Ukraine June 2007

G’day, howdy, and zdrastvi! Life continues at what would be apt to term a terrifyingly merry pace. I remember the “gravitron” amusement park ride. Ukraine had the old soviet equivalent still rotating just a few years ago and I couldn’t help but wonder what quality metal had been used and how rusted it had become over the years as we spun at pretty wild speeds around a center. Anyway… forget the illustration. We are “flat-chat” in what I feel is getting a bit too close to “over-busy”… but it sure is a lot of fun!
