I have three images for you today. The Russia item is third.
First, this, from Twitter:

If you’re already hopeful, you’ll be more encouraged than ever.

I’m in there chatting every day, and we all learn from each other and have a blast.
If you like and appreciate what I’m doing, I hope to see you in there, too:
