I have spent the bulk of my life learning to be flexible. I have moved 27 times (no, I wasn't in the military or peace corps, nor were my parents), I have visited 13 countries and 25 of our 50 states. I enjoy life and exploring as much as possible. I enjoy meeting new people, hearing their stories and hopefully learning something about life from them. I try and learn from other people's mistakes, and a few of my own. I enjoy good food and drinks! I love to cook, try new recipes, love watching FoodTV and America's Test Kitchen on PBS. I'm also a good amateur bartender and can mix up a very smooth martini (gin or vodka), along with a great lemon drop! I don't smoke but maybe once a year I do enjoy a cigar with some friends. I am very laid back, relaxing, and low-key most of the time. So come join me in an exciting and adventuresome life!
