  1. As things look in today's world, Russia has a good chance of becoming great again. Putin must find himself an Ekaterina (Catherine) soon.
    I love Mirren's gray and blue gown.

    1. Oh, how lovely, for once you Americans get geoblocked :) I wanted to do a spotlight on Blood and Treasure upcoming epic adventure but the press CBS site is open only for Americans... they obviously don't care for a free promo they would've gotten from me.
