Cumplimentos Mallorca pela belíssima paisagem da sua FINCA. De todas que apareceram foi a única que conseguiu ocupar todo o ecrã do meu computador. Também ótima a resolução da imagem.

Yeah, this is 30 KM from Saint-Petersburg.
Many urban citizens here in Russia move to the counrty side for the summer.
We call it Dacha.
This is my Dacha :)

In Dacha we do gardening, grow cucumbers, tomatos and potato.

Many people including myself enjoy going to the forest and collect mushrooms.
This is very exciting.
It is even called "Silent hunt" here.

My grandfather says people abroad do not collect mushrooms at all.

Guys, how many of you have collected mushrooms in your life?

Pasha,

Every year of my childhood was spent with my parents taking us to the woods to collect what we called 'Sponge Mushrooms'. It is a very important memory of my childhood.

My grandparents on both sides were from Austria-Hungary and they passed along a lot of European ways to my parents and to my siblings and me.

We lived in the city but we had a garden, fruit trees, and grape arbor. In the Fall, Mom would be cooking up jam and jelly and Dad would be in the basement stomping grapes to create wine. The aroma coming out of our house in the Fall was delicious.

Thank you for asking a question that brought back a lot of fond memories.

Marty

Do you still have any contacts to "goold old Europe"?
This week i watched a TV-show where an old farmers wife prepared to visit her relatives who emigrates to the US (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) many years ago. They always kept contact over the years.

hi Pavel,
hi to all of you,

yes, I am collecting mushrooms her in our country side area.

As I am not very confident with all sorts of mushrooms I do concentrate to yellow boletuses or "Steinpilze".

They taste excellent, no doubt.I do prefer to make them in a cast iron pan with butter, onions, a small clove of garlic and lots of parsley. Parsley is the most important ingredient.

Some fresh white bread or some fried potatoes will round over this meal.

A cold beer or a fresh white wine will taste well!

guys dig in :)

regards

Uli

Hi Reinhart,

While my parents were still around, my mothers sister and her husband kept in touch with cousins in Europe and finally made a trip to Europe to visit with the cousins. My father kept telling us his family history and of how many cousins I have in Europe. We have tried going thru all the records from Ellis Island and Prince Edward Island to track our cousins down. But we keep running into dead ends.

My father's sister showed us her birth certificate from Austria-Hungary. The town names changed after World War I, so the birth certificate did not even help. That certificate is in the hands of one of my cousins now.

I have always wanted to make a trip to the region where my grandparents grew up. I hope I can someday.

Marty
