    They’re a devoted lot! No gallows humor even allowed!

    Thanks for my Bday wishes !

    Did you conduct that whole conversation in Russian? My, you are getting very good!

    And finally, I loved the Ted talk and indeed you are a wonderful explorer of the world. I like honoring and keeping the world nonhomogeneous! More of tHat!
