Occupation Captioning Assistant for the Hearing Impaired
Location Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction My path is always amazing, a joy even in times of great challenge ..., it's been an outstanding & interesting journey. I had to move out-of-state to come back to WI w/ a job - that was 2012 I transferred from the Chattanooga TN Whole Foods to the Milwaukee Whole Foods, then went to what I thought was going to be a promising job but wasn't, was unemployed for a few mo.s then gained a FT position with CapTel, Inc of Madison WI., and now I'm at the Milwaukee location I work as a Captioning Asst for the Hearing Impaired. I have 3 grown children and 1 grandchild & a loyal & loving circle of friends. I deeply love vegan food and collect recipes and cookbooks, constantly. I love it when my kitchen is filled with savory and sweet aromas.
Interests Having fun w/food is the big thing, and I'm always looking for new recipes. Also-knitting(but, I haven;t done much with that since Dec. '15, maybe I'll get my sticks groove back, just taking a break), reading, writing, gathering w/ friends, river walks, volunteering, crochet, quilting. I, plain & simply, enjoy life & my interests/ talents. One need not have a mountain of "stuff" to be happy..., however, yarn helps..., I am my stash. (who isn't?)
Favorite Movies There are so many to list, so right now I'm just going to list my all-time favortie movie "Auntie Mame" with Rosalind Russell who was an incredibly talented and thoroughly entertaining actress, a great person, too.
Favorite Music Late 60s all the 70s rock - any other kind? Folk, World, 1940s torch songs, Blue Grass, Blues, Soul and others...a few like Jason Mraz, CSN or CSN&Y, Lucinda Williams, Eagles, Ben Harper, Annie Lennox, David Byrne, Sarah McLachlan, Gillian Welch, Neil Young, & the best for last - The Beatles, always the Beatles.
Favorite Books Lately read - Second Hand by Michael Zadoorian - one of the coolest novels, ever, The Light Between Oceans by M L Stedman, The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg, Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, The Red Tent, HP 1-7, Water for Elephants, many Classics, books by: Bill Bryson, Margaret Atwood, Anne Tyler, Betty Smith, Wally Lamb, Charles Dickens, Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, & many different Cookbooks

If you were a wrestler, what would be your finishing move?

I'd make a vegan omelette and serve it to my opponent after defeating her.
