Love to: Cook, bake, garden, collect teapots, and have numerous other hobbies. I am almost NEVER bored! There does not seem to be enough hours in the day to do all that I want to do! I also started taking Taoist Tai Chi along with DH. We are attending as many classes as we can, to help re-enforce what we learned. I am a "Sabra", a native Israeli. I was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and grew up in Ramat Gan, then moved to NJ when I was in grade school. I lived in NJ most of my life, but also in PA and now in Florida. I worked as a Registered Nurse and a Medical Transcriptionist, but am now retired. I have four wonderful grown children: 2 sons and 2 daughters, and am also the proud grandmother of 4 beautiful granddaughters. My husband and I recently moved to Florida, where I am busy with one of my passions: growing citrus and other Mediterranean-type trees....something I always dreamed of doing ever since I left Israel at the age of 9. We also have a summer home in the Pennsylvania Poconos....the best of both worlds, as they say. I enjoy growing my own veggies, herbs and fruits. I don't have a favorite cookbook, but I have thousands of recipes that I've amassed over the years. I will never get to try most of them, alas, because I won't live THAT long! And now that I have discovered Zaar, fugetaboutit! I used to spend most of my free time playing games on the computer, but now that Zaar has entered my life, that is all that I seem to be doing on the net!
