My daughter, Genevieve has returned from Russian and the Netherlands. She was disappointed to find that the Lenin Mausoleum in Moscow's Red Square was closed. The only reason for its closure that I can come up with, is that they are changing his suit and linens for his birthday display. I am not a follower of Lenin, but the late dictator, Vladimir and my late husband, Peter shared the same birthday. On occasion I pointed-out other similarities to him.
While my homemade chocolate birthday cakes have always been a winner, Lenin takes the cake.
Happy Birthday Vladimir and Peter.
