Enjoying the four seasons of the year.
Keeping up with current events, and to a lessor extent, my favorite sports teams.
honesty (to the point of blunt at times)
History...particularly American history and especially the sport of professional baseball
I prefer fiction over real for movies: Planet of the Apes(1968), Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars, Star Trek, Blade Runner, Clint Eastwood movies, City of Angles, and many many more.
I prefer lite rock, easy listening, some pop, jazz & R&B, some country, most anyone with a great voice except opera.
I like simple good food....grilled meats and fish, corn, salad, potatoes or rice, baked goods, fruit, peppers and broccoli
Gifts are not romance. Romance is doing anything with the other person because you like being with them.
