Interesting facts about me

Interesting facts about me...hummm.. well I live in a small ranching community called Pincher Creek in southern Alberta, Canada, which is near the eastern slopes of the Rockie Mountains, and about 30 minutes from the Canada/U.S. border.

I am married to Miles who is and will always be my best friend. We will be celebrating our 36th anniversay in July.

I have two grown kids, Jason and Rebecca, and two beautiful grand kids, Mackenzie and Ethan.

I was raised as a military BRAT ( Born, Raised And Trained ) and have lived in some awesome places like Germany and France.

I am a self taught artist and paint in oils and have converted a bedroom into an art studio

I love history.

I have fallen in love with photography.

I love animals and have become an avid bird watcher and love photographing them.

I am a self taught guitar player...can't read a stitch of music but I have a great ear.

I have three cats, Mickey, Bunny and Pearl and a 100 gallon fish tank. My oldest fish is almost 16 years old.

I love music and my all time favorite is Mark Knopfler. I saw him in concert last July and was in my glory!

I enjoy good movies, but hate going to theatres.

I love to garden.

I hate snow!

I have become very aware of the need for people to STOP using pesticides and herbicides in their it really worth having a flawless lawn at the expense of the bees and butterflies? Bee populations are dwindling and hey people, we can't exist without these marvelous little creatures. So wake up and smell the coffee and stop spraying poisons all over your yard.. is it really that important?

  1. Wishing Film Makers Would Get It Right

    I love history, especially the history of the UK..if one is to believe in reincarnation I believe I may have lived in Britan in a former life either in Scotland or Tudor England.

    I love period movies such as Braveheart and the two Elizabeth I movies, but I have to wonder why movie makers don't stick to the facts. Braveheart was a good movie but why, when it came to the battle of Stirling did they change the venue? The battle of Stirling was not won on...
