Happy 4th of July!

Since this is an Amercian funded project here in Russia, we are having a good ol' fashioned BBQ at our Camp (see the photo).

400 people have been invited! You know how many people that is? 400! About 325 Russians and 75 Expats. It starts at 3:00pm and lasts until the last expat's head hits a pillow. The Russians have to leave by 9:00pm, which gives them plenty of time to pass out and then be placed on a bus to their final home for the evening (it just won't be OUR Camp).

There will be hot dogs hamburgers and drinks. Lots of drinks. 600 gellatin shooters were made last night. That's way fewer than needed, but many would argue the Jello shooters are a waste of good vodka. That's why some of the Jello shooters are made with Tequilla.

We will have a football game. World football. Us Americans are taking on our Russian counterparts. They clobbered us at the first meeting 2 months ago, 6 to 2. But, like many Americans who get their asses kicked the first time, we've been practicing. If we still come up short, we have two American NFL regulation footballs ready to be thrown in a game. Let's hope it doesn't come to that, though.

Привет! Thanks for responding. My Russian is VERY bad, but I have an electronic translator on my laptop. Funny thing is, Russians think I speak GREAT Russian after a night of drinking. Of course, I think they speak great English too!

BTW, this Summer is CRAZY here near Chelyabinsk. Today was near 10 degrees C! Only about 5 days have been above 25 degrees C. If global warming is a reality, then it's not present here!

Thanks for reading. Maybe we can hook up next time I fly back to the US through New York, in August.

Ha! Don't even try to keep up...they've got generations of genetic vodka experience you don't have...
