12" x 12" Scrapbook page with the wavy blue white snowflake pattern from my old Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3. This digital paper should be used only for personal art or scrapbooking projects. Snowy winter theme for Christmas. Create your own Christmas scrapbook page. I've been thinking about creating a digital paper download store via Etsy. It's about time I did something with that storefront I created years and years ago. If you see this link today, or in January... nothing going on yet! But it is a new idea for 2017.

Vocabulary tip for language learners from the
I Will Teach You a Language podcast and blog
by Olly Richards. www.iwillteachyoualanguage.com/
For the last couple years I have been reluctant to spend time using Anki for vocabulary development because I like to learn vocabulary in sentences and/or phrases like Olly Richard's suggests in the above statement. My Russian tutor and I started creating an Anki deck with sentences to develop listening skills and vocabulary, and it occurred to me ... perhaps other people would be interested.
If my Russian language tutor recorded Anki decks with sentences read by a native speaker, anyone out there interested in buying one ore more on Fiverr? If so, I'll let him know.
I'm still looking forward to seeing Russian bots on my Duolingo app. I have been doing fairly good with Duolingo since the start of the year. My closest thing to a New Year's Resolution was to get more work done on the Russian tree at Duolingo and finish it within the next few months. I haven't used the app every day, but when I do, I get some work done.
A closer shot of the orchids I found on sale at the grocery store in Sparks, Nevada. Perhaps some orchid loving soul will find their match. I don't make it out to that store very often. But they were having a case lot sale, so I was in the market for tuna and peanut butter while avoiding a traffic jab on I80.
This store in Sparks, Nevada had the most beautiful, colorful orchids the other day. Wow! So very bright. They weren't all that cheap, and my green thumb needs some help to excel at maintaining orchids. So, it works out that I'm more of a window shopper.
A night time photo of an aeroexpress train at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow. In the daytime, they're bright red. The system provides an inexpensive way to get from the airports to into the citty center area to meet up with the metro station or long distance train service to other cities in Russia. This particular train runs back and forth between Domodedova and Paveletsky Station. You can easily find their site for different times and routes into Moscow from the various International airports. You can even buy your ticket ahead of time, but it's only about 75 cents more to buy it at the gate. I noticed that they have great family deals for people traveling with children. Also, when you get off the plane and you're very hungry or thirsty... no need to stop at a kiosk because they have and employee with a cart offering beverages and snacks. From Domodedova and Paveletsky the ride takes about 45 minutes. Here are some of my photos from Russia on products in my Zazzle store.
