I am, as the character in a movie once said, terribly old for a cabbage, but for a mountain I'm not yet begun in years! I am interested and fairly good at a number of crafts (in fact the running joke in my family is that between my sisters and me the only think that we CAN'T make is MONEY! - something that I'm in the process of changing). My skill at cooking depends very much upon who you ask. I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for about 6 years now, and still am not quite used to tofu. My sweetie has been a vegetarian for most of his 50+ years and HE loves tofu. I live in So. Calif with my life-mate, Al and quite a few pets. We both are storytellers and musicians (although I'm just a beginner and he's an expert), I also am interested in middle-eastern (belly) dance.
