Nice looking places.

Decades of Communist oppression seems to have taught the Church nothing.

The Russian Revolution / Re: 100 Years Later

Russia has dabbled with democracy from time to time, but never really managed to make it work.  Putin seems to want democracy only on his terms, he'll go so far, but no farther.  Still, Russia has had leaders much worse (Joseph Stalin, come on down).

Putin may be a de facto Tsar, but even he won't live forever.  After him, who knows what may happen.  Russia could get someone far worse, but, on the other hand, they could get someone better.

Good to have you back, Lisa.

Culturally, the Romanovs have gone through many ups and downs since their murder. I suppose it is to be expected. With much but not all of the controversies resolved, many don't post as often as before. Some of us may feel our voices  need not be heard, or do not have the urgency they once did.

Now that we're at the centennial of the Russian Revolution, things might pick up again.

I am saddened by the losses such as yours, Tim M, of those like RBH.

Thanks, Lisa.  Five-and-a-half years later, her disappearance still puzzles me.

The sad part about the Imperial Family for me is that their church has apparently abandoned them just as so many so called friends must have after the Revolution.

I guess you mean the ROC's foot dragging on the burial of the last of the two children.

Ilana Miller remains a dear friend. She has been looking for Alixz.

Alixz  has been gone from here almost five years now.  Where does the time go?

But it does help to have a famous name to bring in the tourists.

If by, Rasputin: The Mad Monk, you're talking about the 1966 movie, starring Christopher Lee, there is a thread for that movie here:

Nice that we can colourize these pictures now.  A lot more comes out in colour, IMO.

Congrats on the new book.
