emmigrated to the US with my family in 1961.
I received my education in Fresno, and did my graduate work at UCSB.
I taught school for 14 years. I was a teacher of French at a public high school, then at a private college preparatory school, and at UCSB. I left teaching in 1991, and opened my own business in 1993.
I raised 7 children, who are now grown and independent.
I live alone, and looking to change that.
I enjoy learning to play golf, sailing in Morro Bay, flying where my heart desires. Someday I'll settle down and cultivate my own garden of flowers, vegetables, and fruit trees. Ah, the joys of eating the fruits of your labor!
keeping secrets others confide in me, achieving my goals.
my professional demeanor in public.
Movies: I prefer the ones based on true stories, or about nature, science. Some past favorites: 2001 A Space Odyssey, Amadeus, March of the Penguins...
Music: I love flamenco music: Segovia, Carlos Montoya,Ottmar Liebert, Paco de Lucia. In the classical category, Mozart is my favorite. "Classic",or soft rock of the 1960's era is good. No Rap, or whiny country-western, please!!!!!!!!!
Food: I eat most foods of the world, although I am starting to pay some attention to eating a health oriented diet. Darn it!!!I love French pastries so much!
