My husband and I enjoy sailing the Southern California Channel Islands and around Catalina Island. Our sail boat is named "Eight West" - named after the hospital ward at UCLA Medical Center where we met 30 years ago. I am a Mother of 2 and Grandmother of 1 three year old grandaughter and another grandaughter on the way in September. Love to bake desserts. I recently discovered this web site and am loving it. It's inspired me to cook more.
