Hobbies & Interests
Too many to list but travel is at the top - cruising and otherwise - Travel every chance I get. Have done 74 Royal Caribbean cruises, world wide, in the last 14 years -photography, reading, writing poetry, cooking ( though I do much less of it now ), crafts ( again, that's sort of gone by the wayside in my "senior" years ), music, computers ( people will NOT believe I'm saying that!!, anything forensic and good wine!!!
Absolutely love jazz singer, Sony Holland and the songs of her husband, Jerry Holland, Il Divo ( can even make my heart beat faster ), music of my youth ( 50's, 60's, 70's ), country music, Dixieland jazz ( from my nursing school days in New Orleans and my mother's influence ), other jazz, Nancy Wilson, most things, at various times but not heavy metal and don't really like most rap.
Gone With the Wind, Shirley Valentine, Kama Sutra, An Affair to Remember, anything with Grace Kelly, lots of others but I rarely remember movie names...my friend Sherry Arndt, remembers every movie, song, artist - my brain is fried! .. love foreign films.
CSI Miami, Bones, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Forensic Files, Gray's Anatomy, the Golden Girls ( I'm one now ), reruns of Star Trek and Mash, don't really watch that much t.v.
Really not that into sports though I will occasionally watch the 49ers. I do love the Olympics and got into track and field when my youngest was a decathlete ( he graduated from Cal Poly last year ). I like tennis and figure skating.
Love food and wine! When I was younger, I catered for awhile. Have about 500 cookbooks, collected during my worldwide travels. I enjoy all kinds of cooking...least favorite, though, is Mexican...I love French, Indian and enjoy wine, not sweet, except with dessert.
Have none now, like dogs
Anything written by my colleague and friend, former ER nurse, Eileen Dreyer, ie, Saints and Sinners, James Patterson, Jeffrey Deaver - all that forensic stuff...but I like Maeve Binchey, Barbara Kingsolver , Nicholas Sparks, Lisa See and so many other authors as well
