My New Year's resolution is to drink less coffee and more
TEA! Loves old movies and TV shows, with a recent inroad into foreign films.
Love animals, chocolate and reading, not necessarily in that order.
Current Residence: South of the Twin Cities, MN.
Favorite Colors: Turquoise, Purple, Green, Rose, Peach
Animal Lover, especially of Horses
Car: Minivan. (The VW died, went to carlot heaven.)
Best Trip Ever: Family vacation to Expo 1967 in Montreal Canada where I was exposed to a smattering of foreign cultures and history, and had my picture taken with a Canadian Mountie. Woo ha!
Other memorable vacations: Kentucky Derby in Louisville, KY; Bahamas; Washington D.C.
I once started an Unofficial Susan Boyle fan club here on NV -- which was a victim of the downsizing of the number of groups permitted on the Beta Newsvine. So long, Susan, and good luck wherever you go!
Also you can keep track of certain categories of articles like this:
