My very favorite music would have to be from the 1960's--especially ballads. I also like Celtic Woman & Celine Dion.


My favorite authors are Danielle Steel and John Jakes. Danielle Steel takes me away from my every day life and transports me into pure fiction. John Jakes makes history come alive through the use of fiction and non-fiction combined. I also love children's books...and love to read them to my grandchildren!


BLUE has always been my favorite color. I do like all colors...as each has its own unique way of making me feel.


I like simple foods prepared well. Among my favorite main courses are barbecue, shrimp, pizza & hamburgers. Among my favorite vegetables are green beans, salads & spinach. My favorite fruits include peaches (of course!), apples, strawberries & bananas. My favorite desserts are many--but cheesecake ranks #1 with me! Yum!!

My beloved parents have both died now--Dad in May 2013 (living to 92) and Mom in September 2016 (living to 93). I have 3 brothers and no sisters. I am a wife of 47 years to the handiest man I know! I am the mother of 2--a daughter and a son. I am the grandmother of 6--daughter has 3 boys (ages 15, 13 and 6); son has 1 boy and 2 girls (ages 15, 14 and 12).

I am a college graduate with lifetime teaching certificate in Elementary Education and Middle School Math, English and Social Studies. I returned to college to earn my degree when my baby went to KG--and finished in 5 years by going part time. I have never taught, but I have no regrets about earning it! My parents proudly tell everyone they know that all 4 of their children graduated from college--which is something neither of them had to chance to do as after high school graduation, WWII quickly approached.


My favorite thing is my family! I was truly blessed to have had both of my parents living for so long--they were married 71 years on their last 4th of July together! Both of my children live within 30 minutes of me--although both had moved out of the state at one time. That just makes me appreciate what I have even more! My six grandchildren bring such joy to my life!


I like thoughtful people, HGTV and my computer. This computer opens up the world to me--literally it does now that I am on the Hill!

I don't like lazy people who won't help themselves. I don't like people who constantly lie either.


I read a LOT!! I used to do sewing, plastic canvas and counted cross stitching, but have lost interest in them now. I guess besides reading, my hobby now is being with my family and playing on my computer--and I have rediscovered the love of reading once again!

Thank you very much.

An early happy birthday to you!  Know I won't be on NOTH for a few days...so figured an early birthday wish is far better than a belated one!  LOL  Enjoy your day!

Well I seem to be having trouble with sending comments. I am not sure if it is the code I am using for the graphics or something else. I tried on Windows 7 first. When I hit submit comment the box came up empty and so I tried again. No luck. I tried on Windows 10 and it happened again. I will see how this one goes. Otherwise forget the graphics. Maybe that's the problem. I just got the Win 7 computer back from the shop and it seems to be working fine. So I don't know what is going on. It's been a hectic week so I have n't been able to get on the Hill. I hope to get my Page changed for Christmas this week so I hope it goes well.

Have a grand weekend. Hugs, Eileen
