About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation my garden keeps me occupied
Location Columbus, Ohio
Introduction I am currently employed at Sears Hardware and seeking employment in nonprofit social services where I have worked for years until I was laid off thanks to the economy. I've worked in the homeless and housing arena for over 20 years. I am an advocate for supportive housing and quality care for those who are mentally ill, drug or alcohol dependent. I started this blog about the time I turned 50 and found my self reflecting back on life as I move forward, hence the name: From This Side Of The Reflecting Pond.
Interests I'm a New Media and Social Media Evangelist who loves Nissan cars. My other interests include Nonprofit Social Services, Improving Non-Profit Management and Services, Affordable Housing, Harm Reduction, Family, Friends, Maintaining Curiosity.
Favorite Movies Benny and Joon, The Matrix, all of the Harry Potter movies so far. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Crash
Favorite Music My musical tastes run pretty wide. I enjoy rock, jazz, blues and sometimes I even like rap and blue grass.
Favorite Books You don't even want to get me started... I love books, lots of books!

Why does the color blue mean raspberry-flavored?

Blue, like all other colors needed a flavor and all the other good ones were taken. It was either this or liver flavor.
