Oboy has finally found a way to occupy himself that doesn't involve broken furniture or bodily injury: teaching himself to use Windows Movie Maker. His first chef-d'oeuvre is well received on YouTube:
Spring is slowly creeping up on our town, but Oboy discovered this morning that Moscow is enjoying warmer weather at the moment than we are, and that Winnipeg typically has longer, colder winters than most of Russia. This was a bit mind-boggling for him, since he's been reading for years about how long and brutal Russian winters are and how the Russian winter was the reason for the failure of any land invasion of Russia in history, and he wondered what Napolean or Hitler's troops would have made of our winters. Makes us feel a little heartier, if not any warmer.
