I have my plane tickets and got in touch with almost everyone I plan to visit in Europe this spring. I’m really starting to get excited. The Russian classes are fun. 4 years ago
Talked to a bunch of friends… signing up for Russian classes… planning a trip to visit B. and a few other friends over there later this year. Got my shots, need to look for plane tickets. I’m so excited! A little freaked out, too. It’s been a while since I went on a trip this far away. I’m getting old, LOL4 years ago
Had a nice dose of Europe yesterday when my friend B. came to visit on his tour across the States. It was so much fun just talking and laughing together :o) I look forward to visiting him, maybe next year! 4 years ago

I do believe JJG’s music is most enjoyable to those who understand the words… though I’m willing to bet there are a few songs that would please even those who don’t understand French (La-bas; On ira; Il suffira d’un signe; Rouge). 7 years ago
Haven’t listened to these guys in ages (well, not since I was a teenager). A German band, they play “Russian speed folk.” If you can’t imagine what that might sound like, visit

Listening 44L now I can still understand why I loved their music back then, though nowadays I find it slightly annoying. I do enjoy the instruments; not so sure anymore about some of what’s sung. Guess I’m getting old ;o) 7 years ago
