- Delta, British Columbia, Canada
- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

CHOCOLATE and ICE CREAM
God help me, I love chocolate! There was an article in the Vancouver Sun today about how dark chocolate helps lower blood pressure without dieting or exercising. Well, you can imagine what I did...yes, I succumbed to temptation and bought a chocolate bar. Granted, I only had about 1/4 of it and put the rest in the freezer to tempt me tomorrow. AND my daughter treated me to ice cream this afternoon. What flavour did I choose, you wonder? I splurged and had one scoop of peanut butter cluster and one scoop of death by chocolate. At least I did manage to do a brisk 20-minute walk this evening after the temperature had dropped from 85F to 75F. I then languished under the ceiling fan for the rest of the evening. I hope I can sleep tonight what with all the caffeine I have in me. Oh well, I'm sure my blood pressure has gone down substantially.
