I've lived in the midwest (IA) for 40+ years, working at IT and then as a math teacher. Since 2000, I've been doing lots of cross-country biking, and staying in homes with cyclist home-hosting network called warmshowers, I knit and read and play outside as much as possible. I'm a vegetarian/vegan and love to find great new restaurants but enjoy cooking just as much. I work with rescue dogs, fostering and training and transporting. I'm getting to the age where I'd rather be warm in the winter - CA and AZ and TX and NM - look pretty good to me!
