Evidently, Blogger has figured out what the red button does that says Do Not Push. We hope one of them wrote it down.
We lost some material up here, so our apologies, and it may be a day or two before new posts appear here. Please be patient.
We however avoid patience. Puter has fired up his 48-inch chainsaw and is on his way to discuss the damages to our site with the IT folks.
Update: Okay, they put it all back.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
