I love ghost towns - and if they are gold rush frontier towns so much the better. I've been to several here in Nevada and 'Rhyolite' is a very interesting one and it's easy to get lost in 'day dreaming' there. I'll stop there on my way back from Yosemite (favorite place) and yes I do talk to the Sequoias. Anyone want to pack a picnic and take a drive? Also - as I get closer to retirement, I've been studying how to do gold prospecting. I had a friend that found a gold nugget and it gave him enough to buy a 4 wheel jeep with it. I think that started a fever with me; well not a fever per se but I did get a warm fuzzy feeling.

Traveling is always a great way to learn new things. To see new places and the Arts. It's hard to be a world traveler and not love the Arts. I lived three years in Italy and saw all the masterpieces first hand. Michelangelo is my favorite but I'm always amazed at Leonardo da Vinci. I've still got the Pyramids and Great Wall of China to see, not to mention Australia.
Apparently I'm extremely "Old School", where a man's word is his bond. I believe in the sacredness of a promise, that becomes my law to live by.
My philosophy of life is to turn the bad into something good and the good into something better. A good sense of humor helps me do this....strangely enough.
Favorite Artists - Jackie Evancho / Shania Twain (Elle est belle, n'est-ce pas?)
Jackie Evancho - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Movies = Wow, I like a lot of different kinds; in fact I collect movies (several 1000 in library). I've got movies from the 1920's to all the classics and probably every blockbuster made.
Foods = I've traveled the world over so I'll try something at least once. Korean, Italian and of course, American are my favorites.
1. Heavenly Father and his plan of salvation for his children.
2. Holding hands (And all that goes with it).
3. Family of course.
4. Books, Music, and The Arts (counts as one)
5. Modern society - indoor plumbing, all the electronics (my personal favorite the Microwave), remote controls, phones, cars - planes & ships, indoor cooking, heating, air conditioning, lights - Oh yes, modern lights
(I can't read by candle light).
6. ...........still thinking
I wanted to put something that I truly enjoy/love but I don't believe in a "Epicurean Philosophy". Probably just the opposite i.e. "True happiness only comes in the service of 'others'..........."
so, still thinking!
The below video is a True Story................
Sometimes friends set me up with a blind date. I wouldn't mind it so much "except" they never ever follow the rules. I tell them "no" smokers along with my complete "no" list and every time I get a face full of smoke or something else on the list.
I don't ask for too much in life, do I??????
My own personal saying.
"If I were to die tomorrow, would I commit sin today?"
Life is a book, filled with pure white pages that are being written upon as you live every moment of your life. It starts with a limited number of blank pages. When you let others touch and write things in your book, they will either respect the sacredness of it or make it dirty with their own filthiness.........
That said, if your are living a life that emulates the person that you can be proud of and your children and your grand-children and all generations after you and they can say "she served her God righteously, faithfully, morally, spiritually and physically and with conviction"; then you are some one that I would love to hear from!!!!
