My kids love them; me, not so much.

Very nice dress, Katherine!  I can't compare to that; the only "period" costume I ever wore was a Civil War hoop skirt dress...

Hi, Cordelia!  Altho I'm in Oregon, my hubby and I worked a summer in Sac; I worked at Sutter General.  My SIL still lives in Rio Linda; I know the area well!!

Too "yuppie".

Def Leppard? (my fave!)

I have just been having the best time in Google book search, looking at old out of print and out of copyright books and magazines about any number of subjects, including our Romanovs.  Just go to Google, type in your search term, select book from the "more" list at the top, and there you go!  I've tried Romanov, Romanoff, Tsar Nicholas, etc.  You'll be amazed!

Hi, thanks for your kind words, here's the b&w and someone else asked for a b&w of the Alexei pic as well, so here it is:

And Isabel, you're very welcome!



P.S. I'm going to Bulgaria not tomorrow but ther next day so I probably won't be posting here for a while, see y'all!

I too was told long ago (dentist?) about using baking soda to whiten teeth.  It works to some degree, tastes nasty however.  ;D

My grandfather was from Minsk too!  He came to America sometime before 1920, that I know for sure, but don't know the year.  He settled in Chicago and married a Polish woman.  They had 4 children, the 2nd born was my mother.  He was a window washer on the big buildings downtown.  Wish I knew more about him!

Hi, I'm new here too.  I'm Bonnie from Oregon.  My maternal grandfather was from Belarus, hence my interest in all things Russian.  I took some Russian history and literature while in college, lo these many years ago (actually only about 13!).  I'm astounded by all of the knowledge displayed on this board.  I thought I knew a lot about Russia, but now I know it ain't so!!  Thanks for listening...

Bon ;)
