and lets hope that for the Governor this was not a once only PR and Advertising stunt. that the 2 old people will be taken care of. and they can live out their last years in peace and with a few worries and problems less.

She is a fabulous soul.

But so far as the 2 old people go, one of them is no more. Yerefei died in May.

Agafya again returns to where she belongs. Let's wish her an early spring -

Glad to have read this, Lykovie story is fascinating.

But she went to hospital "complaining of acute discomfort in her remote farmstead."

I'm not familiar with that euphemism - where was the discomfort?

I do believe it was that "she was in pain in her legs, restricting her movements" from the original story - Helicopter rescue for Russia's 'loneliest woman' who shuns modern civilisation http://siberiantimes.com/other/others/news/n0552-helicopter-rescue-for-russias-loneliest-woman-who-shuns-modern-civilisation/

Farmstead is not a part of the human anatomy which is commonly troublesome. :winking:

proof reading and setting the ...".... in the appropriate place, something the SibTimes had overlooked.
