My husband and I have lived in our condo high above downtown Philadelphia for the past 25 years. We are both teachers; I have been teaching English as a second language and Spanish since 1973, and have also taught in Spain and South Korea. We both love baseball and are Phillies fans. I read action, mystery, spy, military and police procedural novels, and cookbooks as if they were novels. I sing in the Compline Choir in my parish, in Latin, in Gregorian Chant. I love raising culinary herbs and flowers on our balcony, and experiment with other edible plants as well--I had an avocado tree for 15 years but it never flowered or fruited. A grapefruit plant got a bug infestation and had to be discarded.
