Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!!

And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in
your years.
        Abraham Lincoln

The secret to happiness is not in doing what one likes to do, but in liking what one has to do.

You can never be happy at the expense of the happiness of others.
        Chinese Proverb

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.
