I like old silent movies, especially anything with Lillian Gish.
I like some foreign films--Raise the Red Lantern, The Cranes are Flying, Girl From Hunan.
My favorite films also include, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Red (recently saw this, good movie), Steel Magnolias, any good western, action/adventure, some romantic comedy (depends on my mood). What I don't like is off-color humor trying to mask itself as entertainment quality comedy.

Blues, jazz guitar, classic rock, easy listening, some country, bluegrass, instrumental classics

Eric Clapton, Big Mama Thornton, Jeff Golub, Charlie Christian, Jim Morrison, Henry Mancini, Judy Collins, Dusty Springfield, Jimmy Buffett, The Carter Famiy, EmmyLou Harris, Allison Kraus, Wes Montgomery, Floyd Crammer, Chet Atkins

Basically, I like any good music. I don't like rap.

Too many to list them all.

Five favorites:

Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald

The Good Earth by Pearl Buck

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Writing, reading, drawing, painting, photography, gemstone mining, free-hand rock climbing, swimming, gardening, crafts, word puzzles (cryptograms!)

Travel, travel, travel.






I am a self-employed small business owner (towing & recovery, and beef cattle farm), poet, writer, artist, photographer, mother, grandmother, eternal optimist

I am the product of three centuries of wild and passionate couplings between rowdy Scotch/Irish immigrants and free-spirited members of the Cherokee Nation, with a little English and German thrown in for spice. I write poetry, and enjoy life.

Anything natural. Love being outside.

Bad grammar. Bad spelling. Improper use of words--i.e.: there/their, your/you're, affect/effect, good/well, etc.

I especially dislike the use of "I" for "me" when "me" is appropriate. It bothers me more than the other way around.
