iBlog doesn't really work
Alas, I have not been updating because every time I
make a single entry, I must re-upload the entire blog. This takes so long that
it is not worth doing. There is a feature in the iBlog program which is
supposed to make it only upload new information or changed information, but it
doesn't work for me. :(I'll try and
figure out something else to use.In
the meanwhile, Look to the travel
log for recent updates. Also, I'll try to start putting together a
single page from which you can go to any of the photo galleries.

Why am I not updating this page very often?
I've just gotten a new version of the iblog program which
seems to handle my server much more reliably. But as I experiment, I find that
it still fails to upload pages to my server based on just the changed data, like
it is supposed to. So I still have to build all the pages locally and upload
them all at once, which is very time and bandwidth consuming, which is why you
don't see these pages updated very often.

Long time, no post..
My internet connection has been very bad. The
apartment in which I am now living shares its phone line with the neighbor. :o(
So I get bumped off every few minutes and it makes it impossible to upload
picture libraries. So I have gone today to the office of my Internet Service
Provider here in Kherson to use their connection today. So here are a
few pictures recently taken of my new apartment and a trip to the
water park (beach).

Shaved .. the pictures!
At last, I can show you a few pictures of
me now that I have removed my beard. I still look kinda funny, but
not as bad as I thought I would. Whaddya think?

Hanging out with young girls
Yana are a pair of 18 year old girls with whom I've been hanging out
lately. It's nice to have friendly pretty people with whom to have fun.
Emotions run pretty light.

Last night, on a lark, notwithstanding considerable
influence on the part of two all-too-young laides with whose affections I'm
none-the-less becoming recently less enamoured -thank goddess- I shaved off my
beard. I guess all my chins weren't so bad after all. Pictures

A lovely day at the Beach
So my translator, Victoria (short blond hair)
invited me to come along with her and her friends (Olga on the right and Angela
on the left) to the Black Sea to the beach for a day. We left Friday night and
drove 1-1/2 hours in Angela's nice Suzuki sedan to a cafe where Victoria has
friends and they helped us find a place to stay the night and we went out to the
beach for the evening. Lots of Amusement park-like stuff; bars, cafes,
restaurants, rides and every manner of food and drink and music. Quite a
party.In the morning, we had breakfast
and spent the day at the beach proper, swimming and sunning. We left at 4ish.
There was a great water slide and lots of small rentable boats and tons and tons
of friendly people. Sorry - didn't take the camera to the beach except for a
brief visit early in the morning before breakfast. Here
is a larger picture and here are the
pictures from the
