Hi! I am a 52 year old retired nurse living in North Alabama, USA, and I am an active volunteer in my community. I enjoy cooking and baking (obviously!), reading, hiking, needlework and cats! The old Betty Crocker cookbook of my childhood is still my favorite! I am interested in history, especially English history, peace issues and music. I enjoy singing in the choir at church and love to travel. If I had a whole month off I would travel to England and Ireland and visit all the museums, ruined castles and pubs!
