My self-summary
I love anything having to do with the outdoors; sailing, hiking, skiing, gardening, golf, camping... I love to read and laugh and entertain and travel. Especially travel. I am a good person and don't want to spend any of this short life with anyone who is cranky, jealous or mean. I am in the wine business and love my job! Very happy with my life but would like to find someone with whom to share it. That said, I have no interest in jumping into anything heavy right off the bat. I am an independent person (and not religious and never will be!) and can only see an independent person. I am very outgoing and am that person who will start a conversation in an elevator or make a point of making a mini-mart clerk laugh. I look for joy in life every day! I am very thoughtful, caring and considerate, but I don't like to be bossed around; I'm Scotts Irish so I come by that part honestly. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Working, playing, laughing and writing a business plan.
I’m really good at
Snappy reparte'.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and smile, then that I am always in a good mood. Always.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Historical fiction (especially Celtic), fiction, plays and biographies like Catherine the Great as well as myth dissipating essays. To Kill A Mockingbird.

Eulogy, Death at a Funeral (UK), Role Models, Thomas Crown Affair, The Departed, Devil's Advocate, The Jerk

PramFace, Modern Family, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, True Blood. But I do NOT watch commercial television. ONLY exception is football or World Series.

Anything live! I love music and could not live without it. I am listening to Moonlight Sonata right now but will be rocking some Stones or Alabama Shakes while I cook later. Love Diana Krall, Stereophonics and Concrete Blonde. Actually easier to list genres I dislike- fusion jazz (but love jazz) twangy country (but country's fine) and filthy rap (but rap is okay). I love music.

I love to cook and try other people's cooking. I love international foods. Three things I won't eat: pickles, liver and haggis. That's a pretty short list.
Six things I could never do without
My children (grown), my dog, my friends, the outdoors, books, music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Living in Ireland for four months out of the year. Starting my own business. Italy and France.
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to live music, having dinner with friends or packing for the lake. :)
