About Me Not quite as thin as I'd like. Getting more wrinkly. Good hair. Artistic in many fields. More laid back now than I was back then with my kid. Love fresh veg, herbs and garlic with everything, not sweets, hot weather, my cats and dog, cooking with or without my 'good cook man'. Cook shows on TV, public radio, Presidents Obama, Clinton and Carter. Love to swim, walk, tour other countries. Hate, hate, hate stinking rich hateful Republicans.

Activist Aspirations Casual
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions Devout Atheist  
Eating Habits Lately forcing myself to eat fruit, Lotsof flavour!, All nationalities, no junk., No veal please, herbs, garlic., greens  
Wild Fact About Me I was a showgirl in Paris in 1963.
My Philosophy As poor as I am, I believe in giving or donating whatever possible. Unlike Republicans, I say 'Share the wealth'. Thank goodness for Bill Gates and Warren Buffet offering millions!
What Gives Me Hope Practically nothing lately, with the recession, lack of health care for the poor and the damned oil gush (you can't call it a spill, people!)
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make schools top priority, spending everything on libraries, music and gymnastics (use some of the kids' energy, so they can sit still) beside math, English (Oh! please English!) science and languages. Test, then fire bad teachers and allow discipline (NOT corporal punishment) manners and etiquette to be taught and bullying quashed before it does damage. Educated people are less likely to commit crimes. Let neighbours and family know that they won't be deemed snitches if they alert the police to domestic violence or child abuse. There's more, how much time do I have?
What/who changed my life and why So many things. My father gave me my first job in his pharmacy, a friend suggested I should dance in Paris, my husband took me to many countries, I met the love of my life in my little store............................
What Bugs Me Christians say I will go to hell, I don't care. There isn't one!, Republicans, Republicans, Cell phones talkers in restaurants, Register types who talk among themselves, while ringing you up, Those who cut you off at 70mph, Tailgaters and rude drivers, Republicans

Inspirations Markets, Singapore, Greece and more, Great markets in Indonesia, Turkey, Beaches anywhere, Humming bird and butterflies, Medecine sans frontier, NPR articles, stories and such, Some opera and musicals, Anthony Bourdain especially, TV cooking shows  
What Scares Me The evil Taliban, The illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, global warming, Republicans, Bad/agressive/stupid/inconsiderate drive, BUSH AND HIS CROOKED BUNCH OF CRONIES

Quotation Never a borrower nor lender be. You made your bed, now lie on it! (My mother) Do as you would be done by. All little children are innocent and need to be treated as such. They need lots of cuddles too. Listen to them people!
Interests Politics, Customs in other countries, travel, Architecture, Food, garden, cooking, animals  
Books Harry Potter Series, Dr.Edell, cookbooks, P.D.James, The Kellermans
