I am a fun-loving, basic sort of person. My career was in telecom engineering. That let me play with undersea cables at ATT and communications satellites at Comsat and GTE. Last job, France Telecom, had the best perks. Annual meetings in Paris. They even paid me for the day I took the train to Bayeux in Normandy and walked Omaha Beach and Utah Beach. What a thrill. I like good food so I cook. (But more a recipe cook than an intuitive cook). Thanks to Emeril and Food Network. Fan of the Shakespeare Theatrer downtown (seats are second row on the aisle). My new hobby is ballroom dance. Still take lessons. Never learned to dance at my all-boys high school or all-boys college. Can now do the basic steps of rumba, tango, cha cha, waltz, swing. Would you like to try a loop turn or an arch turn with me???
