I am a native New Yorker who has lived in San Jose for over 35 years and love the small town attitude and accessibility of the 10th largest city. I am an avid reader of the N Y Times and enjoy discussing current events, politics, whatever...... I was one of the first women members of my Rotary Club and am still very active. My interests include jazz (traditional), classical music, opera, art and reading - primarily fiction. I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren who play a major role in my life and my heart. Finally, I look forward to making new friends and sharing stories (especially funny ones).
