I appreciate your taking the time to read a little about me. I have never been married and don't have kids. I had a bar mitzva in 1982. I went to Israel in 1993 and most of the people from that trip are married now. You know who you are. I still seek someone special to fill that void in my life and someday marry. For fun I like to travel to warm places but also like to snow ski. My favorite place is anywhere over 80 degrees especially where there is an ocean or lake. I am somewhat educated but still learn more and more each day. I have nephews and a niece that are adorable. My life isn't perfect, but whose is? I like to play tennis and have recently taken up playing the mandolin. I am not too good at either one but they are fun. I play a wicked version of Mary Had a Little Lamb and the Itsy Bitsy Spider. Someday I hope to play the Battle of Evermore. If you don't know what that is, Google it. I don't eat pork. My favorite food is Italian. My favorite restaurant is Erling Jensens. I shop at Oak Hall mostly but do find some stuff at Steinmart too. I like to read pretty much anything. Recently I have been going back over the books I read in High School and college and they are even more meaningful now. Authors I like include Tennessee Williams, Faulkner, Grisham, James Patterson, C.S. Lewis and secretly, J.K. Rowling. My new favorite is Phillip Pullman. The His Dark Materials trilogy has captured my attention and I can really relate to what he writes. I have also started reading Jane Austen. She rocks.
