Your English is very good, better than some Americans I know.

Again, welcome Zaya.

What coincidence!
Our relatives on a mother also emmigrated from Russia during Revolution. But they emmigrated to France. True, some then of them returned in Russia after Revolution.My great-grandfather was wellknown in Petersburg baker Philippov. And even now in Moscow and in Petersburg there is building which is named "Bakery of Philippov".
I am very glad that you so warmly accepted me in Your friendly Golden Retriever Forums family!
