About Me

I used to be a designer, analyst, programmer (and very much your basic geeky coder). Now I am just curious.

My husband accepted the position of Director of the Johnson County Library, KS in  2014 and we moved from Fort Wayne, IN to Kansas City, MO. I was practically born and raised in Fort Wayne and this was my first move to another city/state.

And I am loving it! So I am going to be writing about all the new places we go in Kansas City and of course, our other travels. And anything else that takes my fancy.

… And this was my original “About Me”:

I’m a coder. As Programmer/Analyst Consultant at a large insurance company and then as an IT Specialist with IBM. I’ve programmed mainframes, midrange, PCs, Unix, Windows, client-server apps, web apps, you name it. But I finally got tired of the rat-race and retired. But I can’t help it, my new desire is to learn all the Web 2.0 tools and use them to help create a new world. 🙂


  • Aikido (until I got too old and gained too much weight)
  • Ballroom Dancing (we need to do more!)
  • Being at home by myself (can you say loner?)
  • Buddhist philosophy (I’m hopeless though)
  • Cats (my favorite animal!)
  • Curmudgeons (I guess we can relate to each other 🙂
  • Dogs (we have a Doberman Boomer)
  • Learning new things (the internet is a curse!)
  • Reading just about anything
  • Reality TV (what can I say…)
  • Science Fiction and Fantasy
  • Travel (especially international)
  • Blogging and Writing

I am in The Pitch’s Bite Club, a group of reviewers that review a restaurant and several of their dishes. I also write my own reviews about almost everything. This is a little about me and how I review and about what I like and dislike about a restaurant and food in general.
