Didn't Mark Twain actually visit Livadia once?

Colour photos didn't exist back then.

But these more than make up for that.

Latest Tatiana Update:  She got a clean bill of health from the vet.  She's doing well for a cat now entering middle age.

Funny thing, cricket never really took off here in Canada. It's well established in other former British colonies, such as Australia, India, and South Africa, but not here.

I'm guessing that our proximity to the U.S. has something to do with it. We embraced their sports like baseball and football (not to be confused with what the Brits call football, which is soccer) instead.

Then again, the U.S. embraced Canada's national sport, hockey. So I guess it all works out.

Do they have hockey in Britain and Australia?

I agree with that.

Tatiana would be moved by this song.

More fitting to put his mind in Lenin or Stalin, IMO.

"The Straight Story" from 1999, about a guy riding through Iowa on a riding mower?

Yeah, that might have been it.

Yeah, would that monument still be there.  It might have been destroyed in World War II.

Amazingly chilling and to the point, isn't it?

Yeah, it sure is.

Makes sense.  Those men would have been still alive then.

Yeah,  I guess it would take some preparation.

Riding a horse must have been fun for them.
