    Ukrainian Revolution

    My father is 1/2 Ukrainian so he has been following this. Anyway, it boils down to Russia trying to control Ukraine and Ukrainians wanting to break away from them. A lot of countries have gone through it but Ukraine is considerably behind them and backward. Anyway, it's all pretty crazy and I can speak from experience that Ukrainians are a bit crazy. They value life differently over there. They don't mind losing people to get their change. Very different from the US where nobody wants to risk breaking a nail to get government to change.

    No wonder he fled. Now if he was a legit businessman ok. But, he used public money that could have gone to the Ukrainians. He does know how to have a good time though.

    The replica wooden galleon is what gets me. That's awesome.

    Now to figure out how to get that much money legitimately.
