I added back all of my class notes. I also included the last couple classes at Tri-C. The notes are as is, with spelling and grammar mistakes and all.

Olessia and I tried B Spot.  It is right to the point.  Burgers.  Brats.  Beer.  Olessia and I tried the burgers.  Pretty tasty.  The shakes are bad ass as advertised on the menu.  I would highly recommend checking it out…  Just plan a head, the wait can be kind of long.

Olessia and I have both been busy with school.  We don’t see much of each other until the weekend.

I took some pictures at Back 2 the Wild.  Saw a lot of birds of prey.

John hosted the Halloween party.  Olessia took some pictures.

Went to the MAKS 2009 Russian Air Show two weeks ago.  That was AWESOME!  Lots of aircraft there that I will not see in the states any time soon.  The airshow grounds are huge and can take quite some time to walk around.  The performances were back-to-back too so there was always something in the sky to watch.

Yesterday, friends and I wen to the Cleveland Air Show.  It was good.  It was much smaller than the Russian show and dare I say, maybe smaller than I remember seeing at previous Cleveland air shows.  The performances were great.  I hadn’t seen in quite some time the F-15 demo, Harrier demo, and the Thunderbirds.  To top it all off, my friend got us on to the tarmac where they keep the performance show aircraft.  That was awesome.

It has been about a week or so on Vonage and so far it has been awesome!

Once the gadget came in the mail (took about 3 days), I had it plugged in and set in about an hour (including the time it took to unplug the land line).  I wanted to have Vonage enabled at all the jacks in the house so I was able to follow a pretty easy tutorial online.  My router handles a lot of stuff and I wanted the Vonage gadget behind it and that is working great too.  I had a slight hiccup with the security system, but a phone call with the security company and I found I needed to swap 4 wires (took 30 seconds or so).  Pretty easy!

Olessia has been able to call Russia at no charge (on the World plan).  Plus we can call almost anywhere at no charge.  We get just about all the phone features you can think of and at the same price I was paying for a basic land line.  So no land line for us now!

Ok, so now for the ad:  click and sign up and you get 2 months free as do I!  For me, that was a $50 savings!  (Saved my friend some money too!)

Ok, I had issues getting pictures up on rsbauer.com so I put them up on Pathfinder instead (files are probably too big).  Here’s the link:

Watch this gallery instead of the other one.

The first picture is of Olessia and we are enjoying breakfast at a London airport restaurant.  The rest are of Dubna and a party at Olessia’s friend’s house.

Olessia and I arrived safely in Russia.  We are doing fine and catching up on some rest.  More news to follow later.

Good news:  I’m able to check my email.  Haven’t tried sending though…

It has been so hectic, I almost forgot to mention this.  Olessia threw a surprise birthday party for me!  It was quite a surprise!  She had about 30 people over, tons of food, gifts, and fun to be had.  On top of it all, my friend John was in on it.  He suckered me out of the house to fly with him.  You ask me if I want to go flying and the answer almost always will be, “yes!”  So I figured the flight itself would be a treat (it was!  we had 3 60 degree banked turns, 3 stalls, and a touch-and-go at Lost Nation before returning to Burke Lakefront).

This flight was a ruse to get me out of the house so Olessia could get the house and people ready for the surprise.  Wow!  Looking back, she had about two to three hours, I think.  John brought me back to the house and I still didn’t have a clue until I got out on our patio and saw everyone (for a moment, I thought Olessia invited some friends over to hang out).

If any of you attended:  Thank you!!

The pictures are up in the gallery.    Olessia took pictures at the partyI took pictures while in flight.
