The bumpy forehead and the little spoilsport

30 December 2021

Original YT playout date: 4 June 2010
Duration: 13:18

This April weekend I had the spot come back which occasionally I get right between the eyebrows. I noticed that if anything is big about a person, that causes them the biggest problems, and I have a big belly and big eyebrows so that’s where I have my problems. Here my longsuffering wife adminsters tea-tree oil in an attempt to reduce the swelling. The next day we go to the new big playground at ul Bytnara and Tanya takes to upsetting everyone’s ball games. People are very nice about it though.

Tania is Eight

Original YT playout date: 16 March 2010
Duration: 12:14

“We all celebrate
For Tania is eight
Her cake we all ate
And thought it was great
But Mimsy the Yorkie
And Pushkin the Cat
They thought it was dorky
And didn’t want that
They both prefer meat
Not things that are sweet
But at half Pushkin’s weight
Mimsy nearly got ate.”

It’s that time of year, so we get around the tree and get opening the presents. But of course we remember the greatest gift of all.

Original YT playout date: 13 September 2009
Duration: 16:16

“The wife and kiddies like nothing better than being driven to the playgrounds in Warsaw’s only pre-war style rickshaw.

Features “”Bozhe khrani svoyikh””, by Zhanna Bichevskaya.

Words by G. Ponomarev.

Here are the chords (per amdm.ru)

Fm Fm+7 Fm7 Fm6
Если терпения нет и сил
Eb Ab F7
Если лукавый лик
Bm Fm
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C F7
Боже, храни Своих
Bm Fm
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C Fm C
Боже, храни Своих

Бога, Христа и пречистую Мать
Взыскивай каждый миг
Если начнут на крестах распинать
Боже, храни Своих

Дар искупительный жертвы Царя
Верой твоей постиг
За катастрофу и от Октября
Боже, храни Своих

В страшном смертельном пленении знай
И повторяй как стих
Верных Христу ожидает рай
Боже, храни Своих

Обворовало народ мой зло
Отняли имя у них
И национальность и дали число
Боже, храни Своих

Нынче у Русских коварный враг
Грабит и жрет за троих
Враг как всегда обратится в прах
Боже, храни Своих

(далее в Gm)

Gm Gm+7 Gm7 Gm6
Русская сила взойдет в зенит
F B G7
С нами архистратиг
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D G7
Боже, храни Своих
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D Gm D
Боже, храни Своих

Станет душа как родник чиста
Тайн приобщившись святых
За сохраненную веру Христа
Боже, храни Своих

Тула, Владимир, Курск и Рязань
Сонм городов дорогих
Просятся руки на правую брань
Боже, храни Своих

Если терпения нет и сил
Если лукавый лих
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
Боже, храни Своих”
