You are now 81. What a slow site. Sites are not normally slow to me , but this one was. I hope you do better. We need more members. It's a long drive to number 1 but thats what you should strive for. And with support with all members you might get there. But it will take some doing. But that that is what makes the chellenge more exciting. All members should give her every support here.

A very correct question, Judge!
Every child in Russia knows ;)
Beginning 1960 vodka bottle price was set to 3 rub per bottle, and people were not so wealthy... only 15 yrs from the end of WW2, space and armament race... so they were limited in funds, and 1 rub was the max to allocate for mid-person.
Later on it was set to 3.5+0.12 glass bottle deposit = 3.62, then higher... then... but the number of participants is still remaining :D

I just voted for your blog and I even took the time to read some of it. You are a very funny writer! I enjoyed the birthday party entry and I liked the health care and wanted to share my wife's experience. This is many years ago, 8 or 9, anyway. She needed some relatively minor surgery and we arranged it through international SOS which was called at the time International Medical Center. They arranged for the surgery at a respectable Russian hospital. My wife is Russian, so there was no language problems to be concerned about. They asked us to pre-pay $2500 and said that if it tuned out to be less, they would provide a refund. They offered to provide transportation to and from the hospital but I drove her there where she spent the night, had the surgery. spent that day and night at the hospital and I brought her home the next afternoon.

International Medical Center called me a week later and told me the refund was ready and amounted to less than $100. When I went there they provided the refund and all receipts for the hospital. The total cost of everything at the hospital was little less than $300. IMC charged $2100 for acting as a go-between. From then on, anything medical we are going to do in Russia gets arranged by my wife and pretty much anything major medically which we need done, we do in London.

Thanks for your blog, I will continue to read it and will recommend it to my wife.

Liked daddy scratches bla bla. I noted he has a photo of his house or a house with a flag on the wall. Is it usual in the states for people to have the American flag in their garden?!? that would be unheard of in the UK. We are a nation with zero patriotism or pride in our country. Where in the US, everyone seems to study American history rather than international history and have a great pride in their land or am I totally wrong?

We usually put up a flag for holidays. Even I have one for 4th of July. But we might have a flag with a daffodil on it for spring. Or a Jack O'Lantern on one for Halloween. Or a rainbow flag for Gay Pride or something (Key West is FULL of those on inns, etc). Americans are very into our version of your garden gnome thing.

The flag in the Daddy Scratches blog is NOT the American flag. It's red, white, and GREEN and has a little Christmas cottage scene on it.

I am NOT a history buff. But my brother is. And his favorite subject is WWII. The European part as opposed to Pacific theater, etc. So, no. You cannot generalize about us only studying American history. We get taught history with an emphasis on US and whatever state you live in (I had Ohio history in elementary school). But we learn about other countries. :book:

I know the flag he had is not the US flag I was making a point, but in America they seem to all have a flag raised on a pole in the front garden or maybe that's only in the movies? For example many Brits don't know what "Thanks Giving" is. I know in American schools you learn about all the presidents, learn all the sates etc etc. Your education system is probably a lot better than the British one if not perhaps a little biased? but as you say I should not generalize since I have not experienced it.

In the UK we have flags but they are only put up on St.Georges Day with the white flag with a red cross, if people were to raise the "union Jack" they would be called racists or nationalists, so its a bit different there.

Whats a "Jack O'Lantern?" Halloween is a pagan tradition or just for fun and for kids no???

I thinkwe Brits have the equivelent of thanksgiving day. Is it not the day we bring in the harvest in the old times? We call it harvest day and I remember celibrating it as a child, however it appears to be old fashioned to us now.

Of course we don't have groundhog day, now that is really American.

For flag raiing of our British ensign yes the Brits do this often, but if you look in the news it is sometimes banned as being racist. LOL The British flag being racist, when it is fashionable and cool to display in many countries? And probably the best known flag in the world?

Many adults I know think Halloween is the best party of the year. Good excuse for thinking up clever costumes.

When it comes to holidays, there are few that white people like more than Halloween. This is in spite of the fact that white people are required to spend almost the entire year preparing for it. But unlike Thanksgiving or Christmas, the preparation requires little emotional labor. Though it does require extensive physical and mental labor along with a fair amount of research thrown in for good measure.

Halloween is so important to white people because they have to wear a costume. It is a chance to literally show everyone how clever you are without having to say a word. This makes it especially important to single white people as one well thought out costume could produce enough romantic interest to last through the winter.

For this reason any white Halloween Party is less of a celebration than it is a contest. And as with any contest, there are a lot of rules.

The first thing you need to know that white people are the only people on the planet who will dress up as a concept. So while your initial thoughts about a costume might be “cowboy,” “policeman,” or “Count Dracula,” white people are more likely to think “math,” “the economy,” or “Post-Modernism.”

Dressing up as a concept is always a major gamble. On one hand, there is the chance that you nail it just right and everyone in the room will recognize how you not only cleverly interpreted the idea but also executed it perfectly in physical form. If you get it wrong, you will be required to spend the entire night explaining yourself. Then again, it is a good way to get white people to talk to you.

Things do not get any easier if you try to dress up like a character from a movie. If you show up dressed as Austin Powers or Napoleon Dynamite you will be met with near-universal scorn. You see, you need to find a character from a movie that enough people recognize but not one that’s so well known that makes it easy to find the materials required to create the costume.

That being said it’s a good idea to draw inspiration from older movies or television shows, specifically ones from the 1980s. Some popular examples are: Pee Wee Herman, the skeleton costumes from Cobra Kai, or Marty McFly. Depending on your race and gender, this could be your opportunity to become the alpha dog among your white friends.

You see, the only thing white people like more than costumes are group costumes. So if you are an asian male of any background, suggest to your white male friends that you all dress up as The Goonies. If you are a black female, offer to play the role of TOOTIE and go as the Facts of Life. Being a black male is considerably tougher, but if you are short enough the role of Webster could be right for you in an ensemble cast. Sadly, if you do not fall into one of these categories your opportunity for a group costume is limited since there are no recorded instances of white people befriending asian women, latinos, Indians, or any other race during the 1980s.

Last, but certainly not least are white people who dress up as characters from books that have not been made into movies.

“I’m Esther Greenwood.”
“Who’s that?”
“Um, from The Bell Jar, hello?”
“I’m sad too.”

These people are unlikely to be recognized as their characters, but are highly recognized as being smart. If you cannot pull off a group costume, this is your best bet. Just pick ANY author who shares your heritage, find a character who matches your age and sex and remember their name. Then show up in regular clothes.

This also allows you to make the awesome joke “Oh, you can’t tell? I’m dressed up as a Sri Lankan woman. It’s me, Matt.” (substitute race/sex as appropriate). White people will find this hilarious, unless there is another non-white person at the part making the same jokes.

You should also be prepared for the inevitability of running into a white person in an offensive costume. It is a certainty that any Halloween party will have at least one white guy dressed up as a recently (and preferably tragically) deceased or wounded celebrity. Past examples include Steve Irwin costumes with a sting ray protruding from the chest, Roy (of Sigfried and Roy) with a stuffed tiger attached to the neck, and this year you are likely to see at least one white person dressed up as Heath Ledger.

With this information, you should have no problem fitting right in at a white halloween party. But don’t try too hard at your costume, white people hate being upstaged.

Remember Miss Annelk, sex and scandel gets readers. Can you inject some sex and scandal into your blog? expat American moms/mums must get up to stuff at all those expat parties that we all hear about.

I cannot write such things on my blog as my life is fairly dull and full of domestic chores..... but I can try!!! :soccer: :12115:

WoW! 205 votes now. and you are moving up. I love this. But is the system fair to get the best blog fairly. I don't think so, however if you you know me. I love games to win. Let us make MissAnnelka the winner no matter if it is unfair. Because I know for sure others are doing the same. This is a fight not only for Missannelka but for expat.ru group members to fight other communities. Believe me they are doing the same at the top. So let us have a go and fight also. Get her number one. We all love competitions, don't we? So lets do it.

She is now rated so she is going up fast. Another few weeks she may well be number one. But don't underestimate the power, as other members are seeking same support from other groups such as other forums. This is a fight for expat.ru as well as for missAnnelik.

As assume the title and the "The beets goes on" is a play on words for beetroot and Borsh??? It won't fit with a new blog on Luxemberg. Or it means the beat goes on and life and expat life and travel continues? Bratislava, Moscow now Luxemberg... wow an interesting life. Moscow must be your shortest gig thus far?

What name will you think of for a lux blog? I don't know what they are famous for?

Luxemberg is charming if not a bit dull. It will be a nice place to live and a lot cheaper and cleaner than Moscow.

Ok Beet goes on is now 841 likes as against 895 like with our toughest 7th competitor. That's 54 likes to achieve as from now for Beet goes on to reach 7th place.

So even within an hour The Beet goes on continues to rise upwards.

If we pass this barrier of beating the seventh, The beet goes on has a very good chance of being number one eventually.

Go for 7th within a week. As I think it is possible.

This is the site to vote for The Beet goes on Please vote and try to make it seventh place over the next seven days.

Same here with more. Just fifty more likes and you are in 2nd place. That means less than 20 votes. Easily done when you think of the massive gap compared to when you were in 6th trying to get seventh place. You are almost there, and first place hasn't got a big gap either.

Yes maybe. But this I feel sure is like a drug now. We are nearly there, and please don't tell us to stop when there was such a struggle to pass that seventh, of which was the biggest barrier. The other two seem easier.

Never stop trying to be number one.

Currently 1520 likes in third place.

Her competitor in second place currently has 1,578 like. that's only 50 more likes to reach second place. That needs only a further 20 voters or even less.

I feel we have already done it, as every time I look the number rises. YES! It's that fast.

Is that the power of expat.ru, or perhaps also the help of her other friends and family. It doesn't matter, let fininish this threa by making her number one.

This is just a thought, people like MissAnn Elik might dream of writing god blogs as a profession. And I believe that there are thousands of us throughout the world who desire to be internationally recognised writers such as admired internationally known journalists or other writers in the category wish to call them.

Wouldn't it be a fantastic idea that top journalist website companies such as BBC, The Sun, Timesonline, National Geographic, and all those North American, and Australasia companies not encourage such competitions to find the best writers, offering a top prize of something.

Even the British Council could come up with something like this, by perhaps encouraging those who speak English as a second language to write a good blog in Englis. Now we we know already that The British government is currently promoting the use of the English language to increase, so it might well be a very good idea.

Also it might be a good idea that admin here also offer a blogs competition here, if we have a resident computer geek available here, we might be be to accomplish organising such a competition. Can we do it?

Top place 1732 likes. 2nd place THE BEET GOES ON 1725 likes. Now much as I tried to be the one to put her in top place. it looks like we need just one more member, and then we can make our celibritions and put this thread to sleep.

So who is the one who is going to put Miss Anne Elka in first place. Who is the member that is going to give those extra 8 likes. Now sometimes it might need two, depending on how you have been participating in the past. But scan read all her blogs, as each section has points. Put you are interested and find it funny to all her blogs and you have done it. Her blogs are in sections.

Soon I hope you will have another conquest. I felt sure that you were going to be number one about a week ago , when you past that seventh place. The rest were easy from then on. Now you are in second place with possibly only one vote with several like and you are number one. When you have one it is time to discuss higher places for bogs.

As I believe top websites are looking for good writers. Unfortunately there a lot of good keen bloggers around who want the same. Hey!! we all want to be great writers. It is a bit like your child saying I want to a great actor, but how many of them in percentage really make it. It is a big fight.

Brilliant. Now if you read her whole blog , you will see it is broken up in many sections and points. Interestesting funny and Yawn! Even Yawn appears to give pints. Now I tick them all, but the best I can get is 4 likes now, but that is perhaps to do with my cookie settings or whatever. To give her more than one point you must go through the whole blog in sections and tick all the boxes.

I tried, and wnted to say I made her number one, but it didn't happen. This really is a battle. but in the end the Beet goes on will be number one.

Almost certainly. Yesterday evening I put on about 30-40 or maybe a few more. I wanted to create more padding. At first the stork was doing nothing. Then when they started they were voting about 4 to my one. I'm fairly fast with a mouse so they may have more than one person doing the trick or they have written a little script to flush the cookie and save some mouse clicks or perhaps they have automated their voting.

We were still ahead when I quit but staying ahead appeared hopeless. I'll do some more later and see how the stork responds.
