Favorite Books


I love mysteries some classics some modern. Sherlock Holmes in any form and any format is wonderful, I love the Thin man and Mike Hammer too. I would love to buy the PBS series Sherlock when I have spare $ ;).

I like mystery books: Modern times include all the alphabet mysteries (Kinsey Milhone) , several food themed series, several witch and ghost series and basically anything I walk by that seems interesting. I also loved the true blood books and all Janet Evanovitch book. The ghost and Mrs McClure, Chet and Bernie PI , and on and on. Classic spy and hard boiled Dic like the Ian Flemming James Bond Series, Mickey Spillane"s, Mike Hammer and Dashiell Hammett's Thin Man are other favorites. Sometimes I read uiry paranormal mysteries too but no particular series, i love to wander in the library and just pick up a bunch of books to try.

Favorite Television

Not really a big TV fan , I grew up in the 80's and to go with that have fond memories of the mystery and adventure shows of that decade. Also 80's Britcoms Are you Being Served, Good Neighbors, and the lot.

Pretty much everything I like is off the air now. PBS science shows ,Castle and Elementary. Although a few seasons behind I do still get Murdoch Mysteries when I can find it usually at 3:07AM and Lucifer is supposed to be available on my friends computer.. In the past Forever, Nova, Nova science Now, Nature, MASH. I also like PBS mystery series esp Sherlock, Poirot, Miss Marple. I also watch antenna TV (retro) Burns and Allen and Jack Benny late at night and watched the entire Dark Shadows and all Addams family series on video.

Older cartoons Scooby Doo Where are you was the best, Animaniacs, Tiny Tunes, Thundar the Barbarian, Classic Looney Tunes, Peanuts specials and the Grinch.

Favorite Music

rock from soft to metal. classic swing and I have no memory for names I just know if I find it pleasing. i like to listen to old me radio mostly comedies some suspense . things like Burns and Allen, Jack Benny , the shadow, Boston Blackie, Lights Out and always like the background music in them. I also like going when the philharmonic plays in the parks.

About Me

Guess I should have read and done this first but part of my philosophy for a more interesting life is throw away the instructions. I work in a variety of fields, sometimes and most happiest teaching people about wildlife and caring for animals . I also enjoy building sets, decorating themed areas for exhibits and teaching about plants. Free time includes, gardening, crafting reading, walking, swimming, baking and probably a slew of other stuff. I volunteer for green based events, when time permits. My personality goes from dark sarcastic to colorful unicorns rainbows and teddy bears which can be an odd sweet and sour mix. Love Disney haunted mansion and antique amusement parks and turn of the century attractions but not into thrill rides. I have also been a fairy, a ghoulish librarian, a dancing buffalo and a fortune teller as part of jobs. Other random notes I like gnomes, elves, fairies, dragons and mushrooms. Pass some coffee please I drink over a dz cps a day and green is my favorite color followed by purple black blue esp turquoise and gray. Flowers are always a correct gift and I have a stuffed (toy) Yeti.

I would like to ... travel abroad take my mom to Disney world (sort of a check) make a better pie crust get an old pocket watch find a working older portable sewing machine learn to scuba dive swim with dolphins interact with an octopus be able to afford the Renaissance festival (mega expensive in NY) Thank the Henson family for being wonderful see my friends in California be able to drive create a steam punk outfit/attend an event collect more costume pieces build a miniature Halloween house find someone giving away old hats from the 20's through 50's to wear ditto with clothes

Bill and i have been together 25 years and he surfs, likes lighthouses and is trying to learn to play the guitar .We are both dragon fans and collect them (Old lead filled 80's or before pewter and gnomes. My brother collects too. Any leads on these are appreciated, they are hard to find now.


Halloween is the holiday in my home! Send Halloween anytime no problem and spiders or snakes are fine, I have a snake and love tarantula's , I used to show one in an educational context.

I also like offbeat animals holidays, Groundhog Day, Squirrel Appreciation Day, Alligators in the Sewers Day (this is a NY day), International Rabbit Day , Polar Bear day, feel free to tell me about ones you love

Favorite Movies

Classics like Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany's, _ ANYTHING with Cary Grant, all the Gene Kelly pictures, All the Thin Man, All the James Bond beginning to present, Charlie Chan, and Topper

Campy stuff Rocky Horror, The Shadow, Radio land murders, Hudson Hawk, Who framed Roger Rabbit

Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, All Muppet movies first to present but the JIM HENSON ones are the best!, Alice in wonderland original animated and live Disney, Mary Poppins orig and new , Most animated Disney, the Avengers movies, The Lion the witch and the wardrobe modern adaptations, ......

Favorite Crafts

hmmmm used to like embroidery but fingers and eyes not the best, maybe paper arts? Cards sometimes but often decorating entire boxes I will be mailing. I like doing envelopes and various 3d projects, a bit tired of ATC's so only if really drawn to the topic and not into APC's either unless something special (Halloween, Alice) Lately the quirky factor is what drives me to pick a theme. I also really like decorated envelopes and hand making postcards.


I love bunnies!, porcupines, squirrel, opossum!!! Also deer, bats and the like. I also am particular to tarantulas, turtles and some snakes. Skunks, mice and rats are cute too.

Our two current bunnies are Ibus an almost 10lb red eyed white and Miss Mariel a sassy 6 lb agouti coated bun. They along with Speedy Buggy my box turtle and Hallows Eve a Honduran Milk snake reside in our home.

Ibus and Mariel are from the shelter and both spent 9 months waiting for a furever home, thy are both 5 years now. Midnight Valentine our beautiful bun boy went with us to speed date with bunnies and helped select these furry family members. He passed away earlier this year at over 10 years of age.

Not a fan/Please don't send

While I respect their place in the environment I am NOT a fan of monkeys or representations of such. I know professional clowns who are great people but I don't care for clowns , marshmallow is a no and I have less than zero interest in sports. I also don't do seasonal socks, I wear tights , mostly black sz M or L I'm 5 ft 7 137 lbs. Unless we are talking spiders, lady bugs, butterflies or Anthropomorphic crickets (Chester, Jiminey), not too into bugs. If specific to swap okay
