I grew up in Honolulu but spent the second part of my life in New York and am now in San Francisco. Retired from the U.S. Customs on 10/21/11. I am into classical music and other performing arts. I am also interested in art, history and horticulture. I like the BBC Masterpiece Theater productions and have seen most if not all of the Jane Austen works on DVD. During my younger years, I've been to Paris, London, Amsterdam, Prague, Germany and Spain. Haute cuisine is fine with me but I appreciate a whole spectrum of food. My favorite drink is still Coca Cola.
