... vloggers I was watching ...
Looks interesting but I am trying not to watch moving images in which someone delivers thoughts/opinions, because it's difficult to search for words unlike text information and I have little chance of knowing her/his mind changed.

But today I watched the one on March 8 in the first site. It gives me many information; car industry, mother's day, streetscape, passersby's facial expressions, parked cars, playground equipment, amount of snow.

Gulag... Many Japanese soldiers also "visited" during/after WW2.

I am concerned about that, too, and ask myself; Is there any other way than sanctions? Probably this war should be calculated actions.

@Bitkar
"When I say 'they' or 'russians' I mean the government and all the proPutin Russians." We did the same thing! Elsewhere, you thought "you" meant specifically you but I meant "anyone"-- a generic person. Here, I thought you meant Russians you met in person but "they" meant their govt. and vatniks. B&B: I'll trade you a pecan pie for a hot Czech babe. I'll trade him a whole bakery for Alina.

@Borgcone
I agree that vloggers etc., also social media, aren't a way to gain in-depth knowledge about things. Real knowledge or understanding takes study, effort, and a willingness to learn. "... car industry, mother's day, streetscape, passersby's facial expressions, parked cars, playground equipment" That's what I get from vloggers etc. Not in-depth study but an overview of life elsewhere. Things in the background can be almost as informative as the speaker. viewtopic.php?p=61169#p61169

Wow! Why did you know I like such location-guess games? I'll take part in some day. (I didn't know the topic though I'm sometimes glancing at other topic here like the food or the travel).
But for me, firstly the concern of Europe is important (and M7.6 quake in offshore Japan last night).

Paragliders arrived yesterday. The road to launch is nearly impassible so they arranged with friends to use these super Jeeps. They flew. I did fun adventure driving. Some of them might share aerial video footage for my movie.

The pipes are fixed. I had a shower. Like a drink of water when really thirsty. Ah. Much flushing. No drips or trouble detected. I'll leave the trench open for a while to be sure.

Finis, glad everything worked out in the end. Har har.

Reporting back from last weekend, I had a chance to see some big 'cats' in the 'Zoo'.

@Spacekdet Much interesting stuff there. Plus trademark Spacekdet funny captions. If I was ultra rich I would have tried to buy one of the SR-71 planes for my private jet. Factoid: It is illegal in the US for a non-government plane to go supersonic over land. Some people own refurbished old supersonic fighter jets. A guy brings his private T-38 talon to the air shows at the nearby AFB. The New Mexico Museum of Space History is here. It has moon rocks, space suits, missiles and rockets, educational displays, etc.

@Bitkar I want to see the museum.

Ruidoso, a mountain village about 50 miles from here, was caught in a forest fire. Two people killed, 4000 evacuated, 120 buildings destroyed.

Too sad! Hign Wind, Critical Fire Weather Possible. Forest fire from at least two points.
Rain...? fire map, forecast, narrow area, interactive brief rain map
