Our group had a meeting with a Buryat shaman in 1995(?). He said he was the descendant of generations of shamans and during the Soviet times had passed himself off as a naturist healer. He read us all and said that my family had had problems with the Inquisition centuries ago. I didn’t think much of this until  I remembered the Great Monition of Cursing of my ancestors in 1524 by the Archbishop of Glasgow.  So that’s pretty close.

The world’s most famous Zek meets the the world’s most famous Chekist. (And it’s total respect and love).

Putin attended the unveiling of a statue in Moscow on the 11th. “He clearly delineated the true, genuine, people’s Russia and the totalitarian system, which brought suffering and severe trials to millions of people.”

As it was the fiftieth it was a big deal. We sent a pipe band and it, a Russian band and an American (USAF?) band all set up shop on Tverskaya near the Dolgorukiy statue and played in turn. A battle of the bands. I need hardly say who won and got the most attention.
