It's nice to be remembered....even if it's thanks to a hurricane! =)  If I had photo shop skills, I'd make some thing up ! lol!

When you get very very very mad that your school curriculum only teaches World History from pre-civilization to 1500AD. Mrs. Crabb, you really should teach us about Russia(:

When you go to school and on your binder have a picture of the 1906 portrait (thanks to GD Ally!) of the Romanov sisters. Yup, there you have it!

My son and my niece are 14 months apart in age.  He just turned 6 and she'll be 5 soon.  I call them the Big Pair.

My two nephews, both 2 years old, are three months apart in age.   I call them the Little Pair.

When in any of your history classes you go to the back of the book(s) for that class and look through the index to see if their is anything about the Romanov's in it.

So true!! Then you flip to the pages, only to be disappointed by what little information is there :)

Yes, grr! And they often take the Bolshevik's side, too.  >:(

When you hug the girl sitting next to you in French class because she knew the Romanovs were executed and told they were going to be photographed. :)
