Über mich
American, Italian heritage, Japanophile, bookaholic, bonsai grower/killer, quilter, amateur geneologist (Italy, England, Maine and Sonoma Co. Calif). And I am finally "retired" and hope to have the time, now, to read all of these books.

Have I mentioned how much I am enjoying being "retired"? I'm so, so glad that I don't have to go to that horrible place anymore.
