I went to my very first real rock concert on August 2/07! Now don't get me wrong - I have been to concerts in my lifetime. I've seen Tom Jones twice, the Fifth Dimension, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Anka, Leonard Cohen and others but they were more like "concerts," not real ROCK concerts. This was what I'd always dreamed of - feeling the bass as it soared through the ground and up from my feet to my chest where I could actually feel it in my body! Oh baby! the sweet smell of Mary Jane wafting amongst the beer-swilling aged hippies! Dancing and swaying on the spot and raising our arms as though we were praying to an actual god! Singing along and screaming our joy as the music pumped us to a frenzy! John Fogerty was absolutely fantastic and I was young again!

- 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.
