How Green Was My Valley

I love Celtic, Gospel, Opera and the 60's Rock 'N Roll I listened to as a teenager. I especially love to listen to Vestal Goodman.

The Bible
Thorn Birds
The Longest Mile
Hard Living on Clay Street
How Green Was My Valley

I prefer big, thick books that tell a good story. Not a mystery fan.
I slowly warmed up to the Kindle and bought one for myself after having played with my husband's; however I still would rather feel the weight and texture of a real book in my hands.

I'm a computer junkie and guru for others. I've loved reading since I learned to read in the first grade. My Dad got me started in genealogy. I love it and have been doing it for myself and others for over 14 years. I'm not Catholic but I love the beauty and meaning of rosaries. I learned about komboloi about 20 years ago and set out to find the perfect one for me. I got my first one in 2013. I developed a love of poetry when I was in grade school. My favorite poet is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and my favorite poem is Evangeline. I named my daughter after that poem.

I have 17 years of genealogical experience and would be happy to help anyone who would like to know more about their family background. I do look ups for free. I do it because I love doing research. My work is thorough and I cross check everything.

Write a book
Go on a cruise
Travel the U.S. by train
Visit my ancestral homes
Get a degree
Live in Tennessee and North Carolina
Own an Airstream

I'm the oldest of 4 girls and a boy. Born in Texas but grew up in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley in California. I met my husband in 1967 at Texas Instruments. We were married in 1970, had a son in 1986 and a daughter in 1991. I retired in 1997 after 15 years in advertising at a major Texas newspaper. I've lived in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas and California. I've visited Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts,Florida, Alabama, Louisiana,New Mexico, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nevada, Colorado and Mexico. The two states I would love to live in are North Carolina and Tennessee, because that's where my ancestral roots are.

I have a weakness for hummingbirds. I'm not a gardener but I love and appreciate the beauty of flowers. I love to cook and one look will tell you I love good food. The older I get, the more I appreciate family. I have a fascination with mermaids and collect mermaid graphics. I respect honesty and require it in myself and others. Same goes for loyalty. I have found that true friends are rare and I highly value the few who are.

SPRING WEATHER! I literally go insane during storms and have to be tranquilized. Not a pretty sight. I don't tolerate liars, I hate for people to waste their own and other peoples' time by acting stupidly when they've got perfectly good brains but don't think things through before they act. I have a fear of traveling. I am terrified of varmints.

A man who treats his woman like a princess 

is proof that he has been raised in the arms of a queen.

God has two dwellings; one in Heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.

Sorry, my friend, that I have not been abl to post for the last couple of days.  I have been so busy that I just haven't had the time.  Couldn't even see yesterday, as I got a shot in my eye and not only is it painful, but it hurst to open the eye and see anything but the tv, which I was able to do finally around 9 last nite.

Hope everyone has had a good Wednesday, whishing you a great afternoon, evening an nite.  Had thunder last nite, but the rain skipped us.  Watered everthing a bit ago and now I'm hearing thunder again - some grey skies but sun is bright - go figure.  

Blessing to all, take  care as its anothe warm day.  Yesterday 94 with heat index of over 104.  Keep hydrated if out for extended periods.  Otherwise, do lke me and stay inside and hopefully in the AC!!
