    Hmm! I always thought it meant an old bald Viking guy with his beard falling out.

    Если неумеренно употреблять национальный русский напиток "калина на коньяке", к этому и приведёт.

    Национальный русский напиток - самогон на портянках.

    Hohum! Kalinka means a very handsome young man with great potential in baking blinis. It also means peace in the old Slavic language of Skrussian.

    Modern usage: Kalinka can be a diminutive form of Kalina, i.e. small (bunch of) kalina. What is kalina? A wonderful berry called guelder-rose in English, but I doubt you find them in you local supermarket it in the U.S.

    Если калину собирать после заморозков, она не горькая. Перетёртая с сахаром она очень вкусная и полезная.

    Kalin(k)a is NOT poisonous! The poisonous one is the Volchya Yagoda, which looks preety much like Kalina. But anyway, that one isn't poisonous AS HELL as well
    Будьте здоровы!
