Yes. There is a new, improved Google Gropes. It no longer creates the
header that allows some newsreaders (like ours) to link posts together
into threads. It does create a new header with a similar function, but
our newsreader doesn't know about it.

Since it doesn't create the References header, the "Open All References"
command doesn't work. This is one of my favorite commands.

Thanks, Jerry. Husband is disappointed that he didn't get cold borscht
like his grandmother served him. Russian vodka is the bomb!

It happens with some newsreaders when I post from the new Google
groups. I thought it was fixed, so I went back. Sorry. How is the
wraparound?

Right after Passover, supermarkets sell off what they think of as
special Passover foods that they don't regularly stock. Among the
half-price items are borscht and gefilte fish, and I stock up. Many
of
the borschts use grated beet and some are clear. I only make it
myself
to get it with diced beets, and it's hardly worth it. I usually serve
chilled borscht with hot boiled potato and sour cream. In really hot
weather, I serve it plain in a tall glass. Unfortunately, borscht
comes only in jars, making it hard to ship.

Welcome back.

Did you get to mingle much with the natives?
Any special brand of vodka you liked the best.
Are you going to post your favorite pic's online?
Favorite food/soup?
What was the Hermitage like?
Did you bring back lots of goodies?
Would you go back?

Lucky you!!

We can get the jarred borscht here, too. I just might have to make some
for him, chill it and boil a potato. My Aunt made a pretty good borscht
using canned beets. I'm sure I can find a recipe.

Save the postage for the tomatoes.

The house brand was excellent. I couldn't read the label :-)
There is one kind of vodka that is flavored with St John's Wort. That is
awesome. Could not bring anything back.
> Are you going to post your favorite pic's online?


When I get through sorting 4 GB of pictures, I'll post a few to Photobucket
> Favorite food/soup?


I enjoyed the cream soups they served on the ship. I also liked a fried
patty made of potato and cabbage. The blini were great. They had them
for breakfast every day. Some days the thick ones and some the thin
ones. I liked the thin ones with a clear cherry sauce.

> What was the Hermitage like?

Mind-blowing! I have seen Baroque palaces in other parts of Europe so
the gilt, gilt, gilt did not impress me that much. It was the amazing
art collection that got me. Just seeing all the Impressionist art in one
building on one floor brought me to tears.

> Did you bring back lots of goodies?


I found a set of those nesting dolls with New York Yankees on them. DH
is thrilled with them. I bought a couple of pieces of costume jewelry
that I found pretty and some trinkets for the gals who do my nails and
cut my hair and for the cleaning lady. I did buy a book at The
Hermitage and one at Catherine's Palace. I love the photo books.
> Would you go back?


I would go back to St. Petersburg. We did not have enough time to see
everything we wanted to see.
