I have very eclectic music tastes in music! I like most genres, Rock, classical, folk, R&B, Jazz, Oldies, Bluegrass, Celtic and even easy listening! I also enjoy musicals, concerts, and love, love, love soundtracks made for movies. Cello, Violin and Classical guitar are my favorite instruments.

I read everything except for romance novels, and I do mean everything! I love to read book series because the story never seems to end. I also enjoy reading the classics like Shakespeare, The Scarlet Letter, etc.

Ann Rice

Ann Rice is my all time favorite author. I've read most everything she has written. As a history professor, she blends historical and literary imagery and story lines. She has written several series that all tie in together. She's awesome!

I collect books, and have for years. They span all genres. I enjoy the classics as much as crime novels. I read poetry and philosophy as well. I'm always wanting to learn new things and look into the past to find lost treasures. Reading and collecting books is one of my favorite pastimes.

I like all genres of movies, but DRAMA is probably my favorite. It's nice to be transported to another era or place. I love to lose myself in movies. Action films are fabulous as well. Some of my favorites are Rob Roy, Braveheart,& movies like Seven & Copycat. Crime shows are awesome!

I love movies that make an impact about social & cultural issues that we may have a preset opinion about. The Color Purple, Shindler's List, Mississippi Burning and to Kill a Mockingbird are just a few. Movies like the Joy Luck Club depict ancient histories/views against modern day; which I find so very interesting.

I really enjoy good Horror Classics like The Shining, Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolfman. Some of the newer ones are way too graphic. A little bit of graphic pictures are okay, like The Exorcist, but movies like Saw are just a bit too much for me.

Who doesn't love a good love story? Love stories touch our hearts and helps us to believe in happily ever afters! Some of my favorites are Love Story, The Notebook, and Gone With the Wind.
I'm ready to get the popcorn!!

Let's not forget comedy! I love most comedies, but I guess I get the biggest kick out of those old movies like The 3 Stooges. Other old comedy shows I enjoy/enjoyed are Lewis & Martin,Laurel & Hardy, Red Skelton. There are alot of newer movies that are wonderful as well. The best part of a comedy is sharing them with another.

Movies about the life of Christ are good for my soul. Although they humble me, I am reminded that Jesus Christ had a heavy cross to bear & I should carry mine as well. HE never complained. He gave his life self sacrificing & died for our sins. It is the center of my faith, the promise of everlasting life through Him.

I also enjoy watching documentaries about biblical times, archeology, and lost scrolls. It gives a better understanding of biblical lands and customs.

TV SHOWS: CRIME DRAMAS

Photobucket


Criminal Minds is my favorite TV show, bar none! We have a timer set so that we don't miss it. Every week is another crime to be solved and I love the psychological way that the team determines what the unsub would be like. Profiling is amazing. I can remember when Profiling was new to crime scenes and now watch it in action, in my favorite TV show, Criminal Minds.

CSI is another show I don't like to miss. The character interaction in this show is fun to watchas well as the crime scene investigating. I like to try and solve the crime too. LOL

I have several hobbies that I enjoy. I've already covered books and collecting. I've discussed photography up in my About me section. I guess my favorite hobby is cooking, cooking shows, cooking sites and cookbooks. I was an Italian Chef for about six years until my husband (my ex) decided that he couldn't stand for me to work nights. I did not go to cooking school. I learned everything I knew on the job working with an old chef from Sicily. I still love to prepare Italian dinners.

I am a great fan of The Food Network. I like most all of their shows, but my favorites are The Next Iron Chef and the Next Food Network Star.

Photobucket


I belong to quite a few cooking clubs online like Pilsbury, Jif, Just a Pinch, Allrecipes, and Betty Crocker. Also, The Food Network online, which has the chef's recipes. I love it!

Photobucket


I've collected cookbooks for years. Last year, I gave most of them to my daughter..since I lived alone. I had no idea that I'd meet Ken!! lol But that's okay. I have my online clubs and I take my laptop right into the kitchen. Ken always says "you got your cookbook with you?" lol

Photobucket



I've been writing in one form or another since I was a child. It's always been a passion of mine. For the past 6 years I've written quite a lot on Myspace. I had built a writing community there called Legacy Writers of Harmony Pub, which came here but went back to Myspace. I did not follow. Here is one of my poems..

I met the love of my life, Ken, right here on boomer! We had both pretty much given up on love and relationships, but clicked immediately. Neither of us could deny that we were meant to be together. I moved to Oklahoma in June & we have lived happily together since.

For the first time in my entire life, I have a happy and wholesome relationship with a man. He is my world and I'll love him forever. My bucket list is definitely full.

I was born in Alton, IL in 1958. I lived in the same house until I was 16, when I got married. I've been travelling ever since. I've lived in 6 states and have visited all but the NE states in America. I'm happy to have finally settled in.

I have three Children, all grown. Monica is 35, Crystal is 34 and Joshua is 28. I also have four grand children. Jacob is 16, Mathew is 13, Abby is 11, and Anna is 9. I'm very proud of them all, but never post pictures of myself or my children. You just never know what kind of weirdos are out there!

I also enjoy Photography. I love taking pictures and love viewing good photos! I'm an avid fan of art galleries as well. I'm always looking for art and photography sites online. National Geographic is one of my daily stop offs as I make my rounds on the Internet.

Good morning


!Dadgum! 
Photobucket petered out on half way through making this comment me but
at least it acknowledged there was a problem finally heehee.
Anyway, the last two pictures below the OxXo is of Elephant Rock State
Park near here and am planning a hike there very soon. Well, watched 1st POTUS debate last night
lol and the moderator needs a mute switch for one or the other or both
when he's trying to talk over them. Below is a song on album of mine
dedicated in tandem to both events ~the hike and the debate. FYI i put
up my my friend, Minute Papillion's song Love Revolution as My Page
song, most appropriately for Autumn in the USA 2020 ~thanks again
precious Corinne ~Enjoy!

Eleven
hours of heavenly music for a Lucidly Luminous Sunday and lovely week
ahead! Dan Gibson and Steven Halpern are all i have ever played for
massage therapy sessions. There are originals, and a couple of hours
into it, you'll hear melodies of hits you have always loved and maybe
some you always loved but had forgotten.  All with the most Luxurious
sounds of songbirds and flowing waters  ~Enjoy!

Looks
like this year, thankfully, we're having a more typical ongoing warmth
into Autumn. Last year, unusually, we had a freeze on the 1st day of
September and an even colder one on the first day of Autumn brrrr! but
thankfully, again, not this year! Even the leaves on the trees are still
green! i will continue to swim, fish and boat until it is just too
cold.

We
rented a 22 foot ski boat Thursday and had a little fun. However, it
was rather windy and made the water choppy until we got back toward the
end of a cove at the end of another cove lol where the water was
tranquil and the wind blocked by surrrounding cliffs and steep hills.
Then on our way back, it was even more windy and it became so choppy i
asked Bully Dad to put on a life jacket. He hesitated and i exclaimed
"When the captain tells you to put on a life jacket, you do what you do
it then ask questions later!" i was unsure if we were going to make it
back to Indian Point's dock before they closed ~the choppy waves were up
to three feet high and had white foam on the tops.  It all turned out
fine but driving in the fierce wind on the way back gave me a little
wind burn on my face ~but no sun burn! YAY
