By the way, the profile name I use has to do with my admiration of the late John Barrymore. My grandfather was friends with him a few years before he died. I believe he was one of the greatest American actors to grace the screen and stage. His granddaughter Drew also impresses me. I love her, too.
I'm also superb at detecting lies. They sing out to me. It comes with my job.
When I am in a relationship I am good at making the relationship work.
Most of all, I am a loyal and supportive friend.
Films: As with books, there are too many to name. My favourite film is "Vertigo." That is why the caption below my first photograph says, "Dreaming of Kim Novak...." I am standing where she stood at Mission San Juan Bautista.
Music: As with books and films, there are too many songs to mention. I love Oldies but Goodies, Classic Rock, 1980s bands, some Country, a lot of current music, some Classical and some Celtic. I also love opera.
Food: I am a vegetarian. However, you don't have to be a vegetarian. I've dated women who were meat-eaters before.
