Checking In

1. Finished the Business Plan. My Associate (who is still my friend) will edit and review it with the client. Adjustments will be made and funding agencies approached.

2. I am going to Kyiv and Chernobyl next week to begin another project. That will be a blast. At least it is about beef cattle and I am working with my buddy Artur Gordin from Pereyaslav-Kmelnitsky.

3. We bought the tickets here in ZV instead of having to go to P'yatikhatki. There is an office open here. Large Soviet looking woman in Soviet looking uniform with definite Soviet attitude to customer service. Sat safely separated from the great unwashed by a plate glass window and metal grill. Little drawer slide in and out money goes in; ticket comes out. she wouldn't get swine flu but she might have been a carrier.

4. Set a new standard for Tanya's flower gardens. showed her the slide sets from The Butchard Gardens in Victoria. We are going to Dnipropetrovsk tomorrow to the flower garden market.

5. I am about to dismantle and clean my desktop computer. I have a bottle of canned air and a vacuum cleaner. If you never hear from me again, you will know I likely had pieces left over after reassembling.

  2. Uh, yes he did. I noticed that right away too. Don't worry; the BF will come back with a "glowing" report of what he did there. And he won't be "cowed" in sharing it -- in fact, it may contain a lot of "bull."

    The Bear know these things.

  3. Hope he remembers to pack his lead underwear. I'm sure he'd have no "beef" with that.
