LOL @ the LEGO Tie-Fighter.
;) I just love LEGO. And Star Wars.

What's the wine you were drinking?

The first one was an Italian semi-sweet red wine, but not so typical, close to a champagne. Maybe it has a special name, like Spanish cava ???
The second one was a Serbian dry red wine from monastery Studenica.

I've just found: Lambrusco. But Prosecco is one of its subgroups, so you're right ;)

Italian wines are interesting in that methods in wine-making overlap, although they are two distinct wines according to Italian/EU law.  Both are tasty!

Oh, that's nice to know. Every now and then I will likely go through that way, in connection with going to Synod in New York.

And there's a young man who sometimes attended church at my parish in Austin, who moved up there and wants to visit and catch up, next time I'm passing through there. He works in the Russian martial arts discipline called Sistema. Anyways, maybe one day we shall meet if God wills.

Noo, it,s impossible ;) I just have three SW Lego sets (Tie-Fighter is the biggest one, the second just contains a few elements plus Luke Skywalker and the third one is a red fighter with cockpit in the middle on two sides it has something that has a boat-shape, don't remember the name of this model :-[).

But as for Lego generally, I have quite a lot: a big coffer that is still in my room :) The sets are very various, some street parts, Harry Potter, some Lego creator, a black boat and an Island, snowboard slope etc. ;) Just with have more time and more space in the flat....  ;D

Here I am with my best friend right after Divine Liturgy at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox church in Nassau. The Kalymniot Greeks are a hardy lot and have long preserved their traditions and faith through the decades. A very kind parishioner who had moved from Kalymnos to Nassau in the '50's gave me a morning prayer book  and a book for pre-communion b

Don't want to. I'm a bit paranoid over giving personal information or pictures to any internet service. Are there any sites after delete pictures over certain time or something?

EDIT: I'll never learn to use English prepositions correctly. You all should just switch to use cases instead of prepositions. A lot easier that way.

Probably most of free image hostings delete pics after a couple of months. Look at early pages of "Picture of the Day".

More than I would trust some other sites. That site seems to be maintained some random Finnish nerd. When it comes to privacy I'd trust a nerd with all kinds of DIY open source ideas a lot more than a suit-wearing CEO of some major corpororation.

Anyway, here's my inner Asteriktos. It's an embarassing selfie from maybe a week or so ago. I was shopping and had to take proof that I've looked even this manly until I grow long hair again or something. I've had this short hair before but last time I just grew long hair again.

Ha! I didn't even realize the shopping-related irony as I've sort of always liked shopping despite the hair or lack thereof. I've been dressing somewhat androgynously for few years and with long hair the general outlook was sometimes more feminine than masculine. After I cut my hair everyone around me and even myself seemed to be suprised  that I can actually look like a man.
