About Me

A few random things about me...
Um, let's see... when I was eight, I had a pet turkey. I used to take it with me on my very short lived paper route. Needless to say, I was terrible at delivering the paper. No one wanted a "Dollar Saver" with turkey poop on the front page. Apparently that is where the best coupons are.
Books... well, "Treasure Island" is a fantastic pirate tale. I love just about a
nything by Roald Dahl, and of course... Jane Austen (I have yet to find a sappy female who doesn't).
I love to write... these days sneaking away just to use the bathroom is hard enough. Finding a quiet moment alone with my laptop is impossible. I've developed a talent for making airplane noises out the side of my mouth for my son while squeezing in a paragraph or two.
When football is on I turn into a different person. I may even use a curse word or two... or three.
I enjoy running; which is a good thing because I need to do it in order to fit into my jeans.
I love to cook and really, really love to eat. I have a theory that avocados make almost anything taste better.
Few things make me smile more than chocolate, cheese, and a good bottle of wine... AND, if the Chargers would make it to the Super Bowl again - just once:)

Love, compassion and concern for others are real sources of happiness. If you have these in abundance, you will not be disturbed even by the most uncomfortable circumstances. If you nurse hatred, however, you will not be happy even in the lap of luxury. Thus, if we really want happiness, we must widen the sphere of love. This is both religious thinking and basic common sense.
