    I'm trying to figure out why your replies are never within the
    thread. Do you know?

    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.

    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.
