My favorite movie is My Fair Lady. I am an Audrey Hepburn fan and really enjoy this film.

I like the oldies from the 40’s and 50’s, also a lot of classical music. My favorite is Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto in B flat Minor. I also like Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus and many other well known pieces. One of my favorite singers was Nat King Cole. I don’t care for Rap. It just doesn’t sound like music to me.

In May we will be discussing Where The Crawdads Sing. I just got through with that book and it is high on the Book List. I liked the story and it is interesting how much Education seems to have been in the last few books we have reviewed in the last few months. Next book on our list is Educated.

I love reading. I have enjoyed it since I was a child. I like the classics such as Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Mark Twain and Robert Lewis Stevenson. I also like Modern Day writers. I read mysteries, biographies and stories about religious people and yes, I read my Bible. I joined the Book Club at our church and that has introduced me to new writers too. Our book for this month was "Before We Were Yours" by Lisa Wingate. It was about a family caught up in the Spanish Flu pandemic during WWI. Sad but very informative.

In March we will review "The Rent Collector" by Camron Wright. I did n't think I would like it as it is about a young family living in the biggest dump in Cambodia. But once I started I could n't put it down. I even learned a lot from it.

I like the usual things. Especially chocolate! Who doesn’t? Well a few folks maybe. I like fish, shrimp, salmon and crab. I like just about every dessert there is. Pasta dishes too. Not much I don’t like really but I try to eat a lot of veggies and fruits. I like to go out once in a while then we try different things. Thai, Chinese, Indian, Italian and just plain old American.

I am so tired of Winter I decided to change my Page. I don't wish to look at snow anymore and I think some of my friends feel the same way. Spring can't get here soon enough for me.

You might notice I am using Books for a Theme this time. As I enjoy reading I thought this might be of interest to some of you.

I was born in England many years ago. Came to the USA in 1963. Became a citizen a few years later in 1967. I have a wonderful husband of 58 years and two sons who are really a treasure to us both. I live in the Pacific Northwest which is a great place to be.

I like sitting in front of the fire on a cold winter night with a good book and hubby across from me. I like to visit with my friends on NOTH and do jigsaw puzzles though I do them on my iPad most of the time now. Still like a big puzzle for a challenge.

I do not like the smell of cigarette smoke, I don't like swearing. If you can't express yourself without cursing it shows me you are not able to control your emotions. I don't like cold weather and not being able to do the things I used to do. Getting old is hard work.

Reading and listening to music. I like using my computer when it is working right. Sometimes it drives me crazy with all these updates. I love flowers and look forward to the Spring when the bulbs start to flower, though I have a Christmas Rose in full bloom.

I think if you listen closely
In the sweet glad days of spring,
With the song of the brook, the breeze, and the birds,
You can hear the flowers sing.

–Helen Isabel Moorhouse (b. 1876)
