Ooooo the first one is awesome, and of course I love the ducks. Hope you have a terrific weekend Sylvia.

This is one week that I loved all of your quotations...especially Anne. It brought back memories of my visit to her house. I do not think I will ever forget that. Your second shot has to be my favorite. It is calling me to come and go swimming in the frigid waters. Hope they warm up a bit by August. We are about to book our tickets. genie

Isaac Asimov has always been one of my favourite authors, and these words are as correct now as when he wrote them.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
