About me

Industry Science
Occupation Recently retired! long-range planner
Location High Desert, Arizona, United States
Introduction Person generally interested in the simple mechanics, pleasures and management of a life of contentment and positive contributions without excess or complacency. I live in awe of God's creation and try not to be disheartened with what some are doing with their share of these gifts. What we have can be wrestled from us with little notice and needs our watchfulness. Army brat and Veteran. Country girl turned city girl, then back to country. Masters and bachelor's degrees in applied science from Michigan Tech and Dartmouth respectively. SITE DISCLAIMER: Products and retail outlets mentioned are based on my experiences with them. If I write something favorable, it is because I have had consistently good experiences. The buttons on the blog page are sites I endorse.
Interests gardening, growing fruits and flowers, baking bread from grain I've ground, feeding bees and birds, not feeding deer and rabbits to avoid feeding coyotes and mountain lions.
Favorite Movies Big trouble in little China
Favorite Music Manheim Steamroller since back in the days when Chip Davis was playing the hammer dulcimer in the San Fran embarcadero selling his Christmas cassette tapes! CHIP, if you ever see this -- I still have the tape and I love it as well as the newer stuff!!
Favorite Books The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?

No, I believe that forks are a hybrid that resulted from a knife impregnating a spoon. This has led us to the silverware drawer inserts to keep them separated, or we would eventually have nothing but forks.
