    Not that many care or remember me that well but I'll throw in.

    I went to Russia for 2 years as a Mormon missionary, learned the language, met a Russian girl there and married her. Specifically lived in Moscow for a year, and the other year in cities in the surrounding region. We go back every few years, but are planning on going more frequently these days.

    We have 2 kids, a boy and girl. Ages 8 and 3 going on 4. We speak Russian and English at home and participate in the local Eastern European community quite a bit, which is pretty fun. Obviously, I'm really proud of the bilingual aspect.

    During all this time, I went to a local college, very slowly plodded my way through it and finally graduated with a double major in HR/Business Mgmt and a minor in criminal justice. I'm happy that I graduated and got a degree but right now I'm not actively using it, which is sort of a downer...in a way.

    The explanation is I've been working as a 911 dispatcher for 12 years. Did HR for about 2 years of that but went back to dispatching. Personal politics. Became disillusioned with HR for awhile and now I don't know if I want to do it anymore. But have been strongly looking into freelancing/contract work in another field(s) and been working towards building my skills with all of that. Working in emergency response is great because you get to make a real impact on peoples' lives and be part of the action as well, and I love that part of it, but I want more freedom and there are other issues as well....

    Anyway. I'm 36 now.

      Damn, I found nü-Blamo in the midst of an alcohol-fueled nostalgia trip so I guess I’m up to the same thing as I was back in olde Blamoe.

          nothing much. reading some stuff and trying to cope with the fact that many people are sufferings and dying around the world as we speak and there is nothing anyone can do really !
          how will i die is one of the most asked questions ever. everyone thinks about this at one point in their life.

              Nothing has changed, really... I don't remember when Blamo died... I think I had moved back to California by then, and Ted joined me a few months later... now we live in this little forest town, just north of San Francisco, and are basically doing the same kind of thing... we have a new cat -- Ira (my new avatar pic), but Mitsou is still around, and pretty old. What else? I got the Pfizer vaccine today, and might wind up with Guillaine Barre, so cool!

                Yikes, you got the vaccine already? Definitely some unanswered questions with this MRNA technology.

                I was reading the FDA report regarding the Pzizer vaccine and it says something along the lines of "it's unclear whether the vaccine will lead to susceptibility to other unrelated viruses, especially as immunity wears off". And it goes on to say it's something that will have to be monitored as the vaccine is rolled out.

                So essentially, anyone who's taking the vaccine already is treating themselves as something of a guinea pig.
