After careers as a jeweler, landscape designer, and most recently as a nursing home administrator, I divide my free time between my passions of gardening and dance. Over the last 14 years, I have performed, choreographed, and twirled my heels for fun in dance styles ranging from 17th to the 20th century. Swing, Country Western Line, and Vintage dancing (historical recreation of styles from the English Regency, Civil War, Victorian and Ragtime Era) are my current favorites. I have one remaining vice, and it is called coffee. Mmmmmmm!

Laura my partner has worked as computer programmer throughout the US and abroad for nearly 30 years. As a Geek / Nerd, she is fond of all things technical, electrical, shiny, Elven, Whovian and Pratchett. However, she shares a passion for making things grow, as well as dance. She is an avid reader; amateur thespian as well as loves to cook, and is a slave to all things cat.

Favorite Quote of 2014:

I been give you sugar for sugar, let you get salt for salt.
I give you sugar for sugar, let you get salt for salt.
And if you can't get 'long with me, we'll it's your own fault.

Excerpt from James Alley Blues by Richard "Rabbit" Brown 1927

Favorite Story In Short

I gave orders for my horse to be brought round from the stables. The servant did not understand me. I myself went to the stable, saddled my horse and mounted. In the distance I heard a bugle call, I asked him what this meant. He knew nothing and had heard nothing. At the gate he stopped me, asking: "Where are you riding to, master?" "I don't know," I said, "only away from here, away from here. Always away from here, only by doing so can I reach my destination." "And so you know your destination?" he asked. "Yes," I answered, "didn't I say so? Away-From-Here, that is my destination." "You have no provisions with you," he said. "I need none," I said, "the journey is so long that I must die of hunger if I don't get anything on the way. No provisions can save me. For it is, fortunately, a truly immense journey."

My Destination by Franz Kafka
