Here it is:

I can’t say I agree with everything she writes but I certainly appreciate how this modern very conservative American “Mary Poppins” tells mothers to return home and take care of it. And I’ve seen her name in some MBTI description of ESTJ! (double benefit for me in reading her blog then). Anyway, she doesn’t like people spending too much time on the Net, so I better go and do something real 🙂

I’ve promised to tell my Ebay subscribers about new music in my shop. Here is a real gem – if you have a key to open its box, that is, if you know Russian well:

There is a big collection of songs by my favorite Russian singer, philologist, poet and songwriter
Here his poetry is translated to English:

Its very clever, deep, emotional, witty, thought-provoking. I can’t say I love all his songs (the latest ones I don’t understand very well) but lots of them always are on my playlist.

Together with Mr Krivoshejev & Mr Stepanov we suspect he is a INFJ too.

By the way, I’m not actually running a business selling music. I though in the past I would, but its too complicated regarding to taxes, customs, etc. So we just sell out (recycle) our (and our parents) CDs, tapes and LPs which we don’t use any more as we went digital. Same applies to videos as we are switching to DVDs.

I’m an anachronist. Science moves forward, but the rest is not. All so called new ideas are just well forgotten old ones. Reading a diary or an article from long ago I can see that the problems bothering people didn’t change. What they call “modern art” is often at least sixty years old…

That’s why I’m interested in cultures living independently from time (I think this corresponds to fourth stage of ethnos development in L. Gumilev works or the spirit of fourth quadra in socionics, groups where children follow examples of parents, traditions are kept and so on.
