Lifelong Hobbies:

Travel in and outside U.S. Started at age 7 with my mom when in 1949 we drove across the United States. Did it four more times with her, then once with my husband and once alone. Have seen 46 states and intend to see the rest. Have taken a few cruises to Alaska, Caribbean, and European River Cruise/
Travelled extensively in Mexico, seen both coasts of Canada and Vancouver Island, Nova Scotia, travelled to the Soviet Union, Estonia, Czechoslovakia, Netherlands, Great Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Venice and Turkey. Intend to travel a lot more too. Attend UC Berkeley Osher Lifelong Learning Institute--Olli Berkeley. (Senior educational program in Berkeley with some outstanding professors and members. Travel nearly 400 miles twice a week to attend.) Museum and nature lover.
Love Shakespeare and yearly attend performances at the Globe Theater in San Diego. Sometimes attend Ashland, Oregon performances. However, prefer San Diego's theater in Balboa Park. Also attend performances of Greek and Roman plays at the Getty Villa in the fall in its outdoor amphitheater.
Walker (particularly through nature preserves 20 - 25 miles per week).
Photographer--take couple of thousand photographs throughout the year.
"Good" movie lover. Parasailing, ballooning, snorkeling, hiking, spelunking at GWU.

Community Activities:

Attended demonstrations for Native Americans regarding North Dakota Access pipeline; ACLU of Northern California meetings and supporter,
Attend meetings and peaceful demonstrations in support of Northern CLAIR,
support numerous groups against the biggest and dangerous degenerate in the White House and his nominees!
Attend my Congressman's meetings, plus email all my representatives on issues
affecting this country and countries of the world. Also, do phone banking for my representatives.


See above. Right now any extra time I have is in fighting and standing up for our perilous democracy.

I love learning and so for some eight years have been going to Olli Berkeley and taking seminars there. It enhances my life. Before that I was attending Sacramento State University's Renaissance program and also took some seminars at Olli U.C. Davis.

My life is very busy and I like it that way. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and U.S. and making new friends.
