When I heard from my friend in Russia that our other mutual friend is attacking people on public transport wearing masks, I thought it was as crazy as it could get. But a couple of days later, I talked to my hairstylist from Palatine. She and her boyfriend both got COVID right before Christmas. She was vaccinated and had a mild case, while her boyfriend was not, and he had it more severe. But the frightening thing is that the boyfriend’s parents do not believe in COVD, and they were shaming the poor girl for “being a baby” and not wanting to come to their house for Christmas!!! They actually insisted on them coming, although they were both sick, and guess what – these parents got COVID!
She was also saying that in Palatine, many people reject masks and that in her hair salon, she has to ask whether the clients are comfortable with her wearing a mask!!! I don’t know what I can add to that…
My name is Henrietta (Hettie) Dombrovskaya. I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russian (actually, back then – Leningrad, USSR) in 1963, and immigrated to the United States in 1996.
I love Saint Petersburg, the city I was born and raised in, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Similarly (but differently) I love Chicago, and can’t imagine myself moving somewhere else in the observable future.
I have three children, Igor, Vlad and Anna, all adults living on their own, and one (so far) granddaughter Nadia. I also believe that my children are the best thing that happened in my life.
As for my professional life, I am working in the field of Information Technologies. When I was twenty, I’ve declared that the databases are the coolest thing invented and that I want to do them for the rest of my life. Thirty plus years later, I still believe it’s true, and still, believe that the databases are the best. These two statements together imply that I think a person can have it all, and indeed, I think so! Keep reading my journals to find out how I did it.

Такое по всему миру, увы…
Моя семья носит маски и с агрессией пока не сталкивались, но только потому, что в общем и целом у нас город пофигистический.
Но негатива к прививкам море.
Моя кузина осенью переболела ковидом и довольно тяжело, теперь восстанавливаться будет долго-долго. Надо ли говорить, что она была не привита и яростная антипрививочница? Один плюс: ее мать, глядя на такое, сходила и привилась.
Вот мечтаю теперь всей семьёй съездить на прививочный тур в Хорватию, чем-нибудь всемирным уколоться

Я ещё как-то могу примириться с людьми, которые сами не хотят прививаться, с трудом, но могу :). Но вот эта агрессия и полное наплевательство на безопасность других – это просто слов нет! Сил и здоровья вам всем!
