THINKING

As I had stated before, most of my Blog is about History around my area or fairly close by that I have visited over time, but here and there I do post about what I think.

I have been watching and checking out the many, many Blog’s that are out there to read about.  A number of them are very good, and I tend to follow those.  There are others that don’t really interest me, but I read them anyway.  There are blogs here that are from people all over the world.  However, there is some that I just don’t see.

What I’m looking for is Blog’s that are all about someone’s Life in Russia.  I’ve never seen any.  Why?  Is it that they can’t do a Blog from Russia?  For some reason, I can’t believe that. I’m sure that the technology exists for them over there.

There is a reason for this.  I’ve always wanted to know what Life is like over there.  We here in the good ole’ USA nearly went into World War III years ago when the Cuban Missile Crisis was going on in 1962.  I was only a teenager when all that was happening, but I remember it.  I really did not know what it was all about, until later on in my Life, but I remember my Mother telling me that we are about to start WWIII!  If WWIII would have started, the whole world would have lost.  Everything would have been gone!  There would have been no winner.  Thank goodness it never happened.  I think that it was not the Russian people that wanted War, it was just the darn gov’t’s that did.  Each one thinking that they would win.  Wrong!  A Atomic War between the 2 Super Powers would have solved nothing!

So, if any of you know, someone who is from Russia, let me know.  I sure would like to read about their Life over there.

Thank you for reading/commenting

  • I used to follow a photography blog from a man in Russia. He is quite a good photographer, and the scenes are so unlike anything in the US. I actually traveled to what used to be called the Soviet Union. My trip was shortly after the Chernobyl disaster. I have many photographs from that journey (I’ve been meaning to post them), and they are dramatically different from that of the current Russia. At that time it was of course a Communist country, and it was striking to notice the complete absence of any form of advertising. It was also quite dire in feeling. That is NOT the Russia of today, for sure.

    You can find many WordPress blogs by entering this search in Google or DuckDuckGo:
    site:wordpress.com russia photography
    Enter exactly as I have given above.

    Here is one that might interest you:

    I am about the same age as you, and I too remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. Hiding under our flimsy wooden desks, as if that would do anything to save us! I read a fascinating book about this time, and about the behind-the-scenes work to keep us from WWIII. It is called “JFK And The Unspeakable”. Well worth a read.

    • Thank you for the Link you have supplied. I did go into that site and followed. It’s interesting to see what Russia is now. I’ll keep following it and see what’s going on. Be Well ~ Les
