For music I like a variety: classic rock, Enya, Peter Gabriel, some country, some pop. The only thing I really don't care for (or tolerate well) is "screamo" and rap. That does the fingernails on a chalkboard thing to my nervous system!
Food: I'm a healthy gourmet at heart with profound appreciation of a thick cut of beef on a grill. I like to experiment and have been trying my hand at smoking meats. Haven't tried smoking fish or cheeses yet but I'll get around to it.
I love the outdoors, love to travel and explore new places. I lived in D.C. for 3 years as an Army nurse and never visited the White House. What was I thinking?! I don't want to die with the thought that I lived all this time on planet earth and never really saw it.
