Biker-baba Anna Petukhova, 73, is the most unusual postwoman in Kaluga Oblast. All alone, she delivers mail, pensions, and food on her personal ATV to eleven half-abandoned villages of the region. For many people, she’s the only link with the outside world. I told ya that Russian babas are TOUGH… don’t mess with baba… she does know a thing or two…

I think that one skilled and able craftsman such as Aleksandr Penteshin outweighs all the loudmouthed pseudo-intellectuals and konvertsy, if you were to place them on the balance. There’s unadorned honesty in the work of skilled hands… just as there’s slippery duplicity in the words of ungrounded and clanging “experts”. THIS is TRUTH…
