I am a retired librarian with many years in a public library system. I have a 34 year old son who lives n San Mateo and works in San Francisco in the financial business. My husband of thirty years passed away in 2009 and since that time I have spent my time between Santa Fe and San Mateo. Previous to that we lived in Portola Valley, CA for 25 plus years. I am a traveler, a book lover, a foodie and I am interested in all kind of folks. I love animals, especially dogs, because I am allergic to cats altho I find them very interesting and cuddly. Am a people person who also loves the arts and enjoys life with zestful living. My profile is on Facebook under Joyce Bernell Rubenstein. Please friend me on that site and you will gather more information. I would just add that I have had an adventurous life...in my (email hidden)d I hope to continue living with joy and excitement until the day comes when I will be full of memories.
