Favorite Music

I love country music especially Johnny Cash (may he and June be resting ever so peacefully watching down over all of us) oddly somehow his song Ring of Fire really moves me....that is for any new music of his that song is my favorite, I love all of his songs! I like rock and roll...yes 60's and 70's....I prefer silence when I am creating! When it rains the sound is so lovely to me! Birds make some of the most beautiful music in the world! 2016

I lost hearing in one of my ears due to the meningitis and pneumonia I contracted~I almost died 4 times that Spring (3/22/16) while I was in the hospital for 30 days. I had seizures and heart attacks too. I have a hearing aid for my one ear~It has taken me a good 2 years to get back into the swing of things especially here on SB but I am back! Ever so grateful to be alive!

I used to have lovebirds. I miss my babies I had to give them up when I moved from FL to NH.

I love Debbie Macomber books. Recently Summer 2018 I started reading Louise Penney Inspector Gamache series. It is based on Quebec City I don't usually read crime novels but Penney's books are good.

Favorite Television

I prefer to have no TV on....I watch CNN for some news, I enjoy The Voice, NH Chronicle, gardening shows, craft shows, cooking shows, Martha Stewart, HGTV, Antiques Roadshow, Discovery Channel for many varied topics, Larry King (not on anymore), Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown RIP 06/08/18 and many different PBS shows I grew up with "no" television in our household not that we couldn't afford one my father was a lawyer but my parents didn't think it was good for us. We rented a TV to watch the presidential elections and the landing of man on the moon. Of course I watched bits and pieces of TV here and there at friends houses guess that was why I loved sleepovers at other people's houses so much, no TV made me a good reader which I can do and watch TV at the same time. I used to like Johnny Carson and watched him faithfully no more late night TV for me now.

Favorite Movies

Officer and Gentleman is my all time favorite movie. I like love story movies as well as high speed fast action movies such as Fast and the Furious...The first movie I ever saw in a movie theater was The God Father way back when....then my sister and I saw Jaws and swore we would never go in the ocean ever again haha we both love the ocean. The actor Adam Sandler used to live here in Manchester NH where I live now somewhere in this city. I know he went to school nearby where I live. I love his movies always have.

Favorite Crafts

Anything that has to do with paper, card stock, embellishments and more paper.... I use old calendars and pretty card stock to make my own envelopes I enjoy making paper bookmarks I am learning stamping! I make Washi tape and paper strip cards book marks and scripture cards too Decoupage with paper napkins~Handmade, homemade anything is the best! If I can hand sew something and have it turn out nice well then I am really happy Love to make mixed media master boards!~
