Things I couldn't live without: books, quiet, health and exercise, travel, family.
Things I detest: television, zealots, television, television, television.
Favorite travel destinations thus far: British Isles, Scandinavia, Disney World.
Favorite authors: Kate Atkinson, Jo Nesbo, William Boyd, (those are just the three authors I've got going now) I guess I don't have favorite authors or too many to mention.
Food/Wine: I don't eat much but I like all kinds of food and dry wine, both white and red and sparkling.
Motto? Be nice or leave (which is not the same as love it or leave it!)
