I am a retired teacher, married to a Cellular Industry Real Estate manager. We have two grown children who live near. I have been a restaurateur and a general contractor. Now I row crew with the Lake Merritt Women's Masters Team and raise bees! I love to cook, bake bread, brew beer, read, knit, listen to music and watch British television programs! We are well travelled around the world and enjoy meeting people from all over! I can't live without coffee and chocolate is nearly as important!
