Interests: current interests are my choir and Friendship Circle involvements at church, people, eating out (of course), writing my own recipes, and I get a kick out of researching vintage jewelry on the internet (with my purchases from the GOODWILL stores, or thrift stores) also, love nature -- previously, took up birding for a while (cockatiels) and had owned one white-bellied caique parrot who was later adopted by comedian Dom DeLuise through a bird club I had attended  -- "lucky bird," got to live with Dom and his wife Carol in Pacific Palisades, CA - Sadly, Dom has left us fairly recently --  currently I live in a dinky apartment behind the old Culver Hotel area (no pets allowed)
