another passing fancy ha!

It's snowing cat's + dogs tonight. Really has been cold the past several days.

We weren't ever very cold with the Russians. I can understand why they can stand the cold. Their food is greasy. They eat pork fat + seem to relish it. We never did get used to that. On potatoes or rice, they poured hot grease on it + chances were the meat was pork. They love soup, it too, is very greasy. Almost all their food has a goodly amount of grease. Seldom saw a Russian drinking water, (they thought we were daft cause we drank so much water - they said water was good to wash with - not drink)They drank tea or wine.
