Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in a very small town in the midwest. I am the youngest of
5. I graduated with a bs in journalism and political science and
think that, hands down, the bs part was the most helpful in
preparing me for the working world. I have been very fortunate that
my work has allowed me to live/visit many parts of this country. I
settled in Portland 13 years ago after several years in Minnesota
and Washington DC. I am an active person who enjoys all kinds of
indoor and outdoor activities but also have no problem "just
chillin". I love to bake and cook---nothing fancy just good, down
home cookin. I happen to believe that baseball should be played
outside (without a roof) with a hotdog, warm peanuts and a beer
close at hand, that a great Sunday includes excercise, political
talk shows, the New York Times/Washington Post and a cup of coffee,
and that communication is the key to success in all relationships

When I am reading for shear no mind enjoyment, must admit that I
like mysteries like the Grisham novels. Currently reading Game
Change. I enjoy all sorts of movies---hard to go wrong no matter
the topic or type. Feel the same about music although I tend to
gravitate to R & B (old and new), jazz, top 40, again... pretty
open. And now sounding a bit redundant... the same with food. I
like experiencing new things, recipes, places, spices,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

pie and chocolate chip cookies to die for.
