About meI am a book reader, cook, gardener, traveler, history teacher/professor, mother of two grown sons and 7 grandchildren, whom I adore. I want to down-size most things in my life because to maintain them anymore is exhausting. I play euchre competitively and through this have met people from all over the world. I teach American History 1877-modern day, World History 1700-modern day to high schoolers. I am also an adjunct professor at a local university where I teach Western Civilization and the Holocaust, a course for which I wrote the curriculum. I have earned a B.S. in Social Studies Education from The Ohio State University and a M.A. in Social Sciences with an emphasis on modern history from Ohio University. I have taken enough upper level graduate courses to earn a PhD. in history but do not want to research and write a dissertation at my age--life is too short!

I LOATHE negative people and negativity. I have come to believe that a negative person wishes to be that way and they want everyone else to be as miserable as they are. I avoid them like the plague.

I love to decorate, especially during the holidays. I have collected nativity scenes for about 40 years and display them all.

About my libraryMy library is very eclectic leaning heavily towards history and historical fiction (not those trashy romance historical fictions!). I read a lot of classics and especially like Hardy, the Brontes, and my favorite author, George Eliot.

I am a hopeless bibliophile for which there is no cure. I have accepted my disease and so have those close to me.

I have finally come to terms with my ereader and my real books. The ereader was necessary in my down-sizing scheme. I am at peace.

Every year I read Evangeline, the greatest love story ever written.
