    You have some amazing churches in Russia Marina. Did you go to one of them?
    I’d think you’d like some camping areas here in Illinois better than that place in Russia.  Try them out sometime.
    Not a Ditz at all! Very nice!
    Congrats on becoming an American!  We’re happy to have you :)
    Keep up the Hot Words!

    Marina,
       Ditzzy , never, humorous and comedic, most of the time,  like it a lot. (A political comment not a demeaning comment on your country of birth) That a country where the official political party line was their is no God , now show that all those Houses of Worship didn’t go too waste after all.  Ive seen some of the pictures of some of the most beautiful churches in the world are in Russia and also now one of the most likable Russian/American teachers and citizen of America always will have a place in our heart.

    Congrats to you Marina,

        love   John

    Kid Joke

    An acquaintance of mine who is a physician told this story about her then-four-year-old daughter. On the way to preschool, the doctor had left her stethoscope on the car seat, and her little girl picked it up and began playing with it. Be still, my heart, thought my friend, gee, my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps and be a doctor! Then the child spoke into the instrument: “Welcome to McDonald’s. May I take your order?”

    Elderly Joke

    Three sisters, ages 92, 94, and 96, live together. One night the 96-year-0ld draws a bath. She puts one foot in and pauses. “Was I getting in the tub or out?” she yells.

    The 94-year-old hollers back, “I don’t know, I’ll come up to see.” She starts up the stairs and stops. She shouts, “Was I going up or going down?”

    The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea, listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, “I sure hope I never get that forgetful”, and knocks on wood for good measure. Then she yells, “I’ll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who’s at the door.”

    The Hamster

    A young man was working at a pet store that offered free replacement fish to any that die. A lady called and stated that her hamster had died. The salesperson who answered the phone misunderstood her, thinking it was a fish, told her to place it in a plastic bag with water and return it so it could be replaced. The lady followed instructions to a “T” and brought her dead hamster in a bag of water and handed to the young man and said “my hamster died.” Laughing he replied “Was that before or after you placed it in the bag of water?”

    He was fired for not showing sympathy to a customer!

    The Bat Phone

    Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry’s first encounter with the “bat phone” didn’t go as planned, reports The Shawnee Star. The phone, which is used strictly for emergencies and connects the state and the Department of Homeland Security, rang unexpectedly one night.

    “Suddenly I hear a shrill, loud noise. It scared me half to death,” Henry says. “And then I realize the ‘bat phone’ is ringing! Now I’m in a panic because it must be a matter of national security.”

    Henry lifted the receiver of the ominous phone. Was it the President on the other end?

    “It was a telemarketer,” said Henry

    A Free Ride

    Three lawyers and three engineers are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three lawyers each buy tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a single ticket.

    “How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?” wonders one of the lawyers. “Watch, and you’ll see,” replies one of the engineers.

    They all board the train. The lawyers take their respective seats while all three engineers cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train departs, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, “Ticket, please.” The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.

    The lawyers see this and agree it is quite a clever idea. After the conference, the lawyers decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money. When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers don’t buy a ticket at all. “How are you going to travel without a ticket?” asks one perplexed lawyer. “Watch, and you’ll see,” replies one of the engineers.

    When they board the train the three lawyers cram into a restroom and the three engineers cram into another one nearby. The train departs. A few moments later, one of the engineers leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the lawyers are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, “Ticket, please.”

    A Penthouse in Heaven

    The Pope dies and goes to heaven. When he gets there, Saint Peter shows him to his new quarters which turn out to be a tiny one bedroom apartment.

    The Pope is horrified and wants to know why he doesn’t have the penthouse apartment, which is huge.

    Saint Peter informs him that the resident of the penthouse is a lawyer.

    “A lawyer,” says the Pope. “But I’m the Pope, surely I’m more important.”

    “With respect Sir,” says Saint Peter, “We have lots of Pope’s up here, but we only have ONE lawyer!”

Well all you really need is to look at history, and see how it just keeps repeating no matter what.Like right now we have seen many wars, and many more will more than likely will ensue, Do we not need to fight and battle for whatever we got or have? How did we get the land and all the stuff we came to possess, if we didn’t fight and kill, what would have been the outcome, and I think if not us, then someone else would have just come along and done the very samething anyhow would it have even been worse, would they have fought and killed and controlled the Indians, and us right along with it.

    Top Ten Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Pets Than Cats

    1. Dogs will tilt their heads and try to understand every word you say. Cats will ignore you and take a nap.

    2. Cats look silly on a leash.

    3. When you come home from work, your dog will be happy and lick your face. Cats will still be mad at you for leaving in the first place.

    4. Dogs will give you unconditional love until the day they die. Cats will make you pay for every mistake you’ve ever made since the day you were born.

    5. A dog knows when you’re sad. And he’ll try to comfort you. Cats don’t care how you feel, as long as you remember where the can opener is.

    6. Dogs will bring you your slippers. Cats will drop a dead mouse in your slippers.

    7. When you take them for a ride, dogs will sit on the seat next to you. Cats have to have their own private basket, or they won’t go at all.

    8. Dogs will come when you call them. And they’ll be happy. Cats will have someone take a message and get back to you.

    9. Dogs will play fetch with you all day long. The only thing cats will play with all day long are small rodents or bugs, preferably ones that look like they’re in pain.

    10. Dogs will wake you up if the house is on fire. Cats will quietly sneak out the back door.

    Drunk at Confessional

    A drunk was staggering down the main street of town. Somehow, he managed to make it up the stairs to the cathedral and into the building, where he crashed from pew to pew. He finally made his way to a side aisle and into a confessional.

    A priest had been observing the man’s sorry progress. Figuring the fellow was in need of some assistance, he proceeded to enter his side of the confessional. His attention was rewarded only by a lengthy silence.

    Finally he asked, “May I help you, my son?”

    “I dunno.” came the drunk’s voice from behind the partition. “You got any toilet paper on your side?”

    The Widow at the Farmhouse

    Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up Jack’s station-wagon and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farmhouse and asked the attractive lady of the house if they could spend the night.

    “I’m recently widowed,” she explained, “and I’m afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.”

    “Not to worry,” Jack said, “we’ll be happy to sleep in the barn.”

    Nine months later, Jack got a letter from the widow’s attorney. He called up his friend Bob and said, “Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow at the farm we stayed at?”

    “Yes, I do.”

    “Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and visit with her?”

    “Yes, I have to admit that I did.”

    “Did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?”

    Bob’s face turns red and he said, “Yeah, I’m afraid I did.”

    “Well, thanks! She just died and left me everything!”

    Daily Comment Wierdness Report:

    Only 6 out of 47 comments showing today in this blog.

    I have been using the gray ShortLink bar that normally winds up at the top of the page after everything in a page is loaded as a “done” indicator, so I .know when I am free to scroll down to whatever I want to. (Sometimes it takes 15 or 20 seconds to load.) Today, that bar pops up momentarily, but then disappears, so it is no longer a reliable indicator. Marina, could you put a thin colored line just below the menu bar for this purpose? The tag would somehow have to be positioned at the end of everything else, but cause it to appear at the top. Is it possible for tags in one place to reach back and fiddle with the look of page earlier on?

        I’m currently whoring out my vector bending skills to a biz that produces, among other things, high-end cemetery memorials. A customer sends us a fax of a photocopy of a thumbnail of a dragon that someone wants carved on a stone. I could draw it if I could see the thing. When I looked at it thru my loupe, the extended claw looked familiar. Hmmm. It looks like Evan’s avatar! Needless to say a Google image search for “welsh dragon” threw me hundreds of Welsh flags. Didn’t know that’s where your avatar came from. Long story short, if Disqus allows me to attach it, here’s what your avatar looks like carved into a piece of Georgia Blue granite. Thanks again!

  51. Just a personal opinion here of course.. but less ditz and more sally fantastic and her plastic smile. It is almost as if that is what an android of you would look like. Creepy.. As for the rest of the pictures. .much nicer. More down to earth and more real. I like.

    Like the shots your brother took. Remind me of some my friend took too :)

    Marina, your choice of shoes seems to have improved a lot ;-)

    But I suspect it might have been a money issue.

    I am currently reading Allen Metcalf’s OK a book whose only subject is the etymology of the word.OK. Marina, do you have it? It is certainly cheap enough. So far it is a good read; you get a lot of flavor of it in the culture in which it originated.

    Marina, I would like to know if the Guest section of the DISQUS sign-in page is to be a permanent feature. Also, what was that version of the site that you had up recently that has a lot of buttons just beneath a full-width bucolic picture of a contryside lane? Is that a test configuration or something you just use yourself that accidentally leaked out?

    Dear совершенно Marina,
    You look great in those photos you posted. On your camping trip in 2003, you look so very thin! I like your videos when you wear a baseball cap. They make your eyes look relaxed.
    I’m glad you took time to post some photos you like. You’ve been travelling so much (Yellowstone, New York, San Diego, and back to New York, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere), it’s nice that you share photos with we who can’t travel as much. I hope you enjoy seeing all the nice places, enjoy the fine food there, sleep in great hotel beds, and come back to us in California safely.
    BTW, you don’t look like a ditz. You look better than any of the glamor girls who make publicity photos!

    Marina,
    Nice pictures!!
    Those churches are extremely beautiful and detailed. I like detail.
    Look at you camping!! Very cool. Do you still have it in ya to go camping and rough-it? I’m sure you do. I recommend sleeping a few nights on the ground with only a sleeping bag in a meadow directly in the middle of Yosemite Valley with wild deer eating grass an arms length away, it can be life changing.
    The table is funny. Just a bunch of random stuff to eat and drink. Ha! And of course the purse is classic you. :) I’ll bet you had pair of heels in the car just in case anything that required heels while camping came up. ;) Russian women do love their handbags and heels …and I ain’t complaining!
    The pink boots and outfit? Its a cute pic and all… I don’t know, I kinda like pictures of you in a pair of jeans out in the wilderness being yourself. Is that weird?

    Oh, and your brother is VERY talented. Nice stuff, indeed. And the archtecture is fantastic in your homeland.

    I wouldn’t choose ditz to describe Marina.
    Even with pink boots a Go-Go.
    Need better pictures, can’t tell what we are going to eat besides a fancy handbag.

    Hi Marina!
    If you’re talking about the “cute” part of the definition of ditz, okay. I think you look great in that pic. Everybody thinks they look weird when they see themselves as they were a few years ago. Love the ‘come hither’ look in the bottom pic. Very sexy. No duh. Hey are those crawfish in the middle pic? I can eat a bucketful of those. Thanks for sharing the pics with us. You’re beautiful (please note correct grammatical use of “you’re”).
