About me

Location West Linn, Oregon, United States
Introduction What can I say? I'm a person of disparate interests and strengths- I keep the checkbook balanced to the penny and pay the bills on time (usually), but I can't manage to keep crap from accumulating on the dining room table. I tend to obsess over the proper use of English grammar (at least, as I understand it), but my math skills are practically non-existent. This is probably why I'm always amazed that the built-in furniture I make for this house turns out as well as it does. I find that the older I get, the less willing I am to suffer fools gladly, but I love well when I love. I shoot from the hip and eat a lot of foot, but at least you don't have to guess what I'm thinking or feeling. I sleep too little and drink too much, and I still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up, which is probably why I haven't. However, I do seem to fake it pretty well. To know me is to love me - at least, that's what I keep telling myself. Did I also mention that I'm a loose cannon? And now I have both a soap box and a huge megaphone called a blog....
Interests learning, gardening, cooking, handwork, woodworking, sustainability, homesteading, alternative energy, self-sufficiency
Favorite Movies Auntie Mame, Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?, The Lion in Winter, Father Goose, you know - old stuff. Across The Universe, Frida
Favorite Music Mostly classical, some bluegrass, swing and old jazz, and classic rock of course. Mostly I like silence, though I'm really fond of listening to birdsong in the yard or through and open window

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?

I wouldn't. Saying Lake Titicaca also makes me laugh.
