I was born in South Wales just over 60 years ago and came to Canada at the age of 8.  My parents and three sisters moved to southern British Columbia in 1968 but I remained in Ontario.  My Mum and Dad enjoy reasonably good health in their mid-80's.  My three sisters with their respective spouses and my nieces and nephews also live in the lower mainland of BC and I go out there usually about three times a year to visit them all.
I have lived mostly in Southern Ontario and have made my home in Newmarket for the past 15 years.  I am married to Jeff and we celebrated our 21st anniversary this October 11th.  We have two sons and one daughter, two daughters-in-law and six grandchildren to whom I am "Nana", one boy and the rest girls.  I enjoy my time with my family and try to spend as much time with them as I can.

My Dear Hubby & I!

This was taken three years ago on our 18th anniversary at our favorite place of Los Abrigados Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona.  It was taken by Nora Stewart, a photographer based in California who often comes to Sedona as a wedding photographer.  She certainly was able to capture us and our happiness!!


My favorite music is Country although I do enjoy a wide range from Easy Listening, the Oldies, to light Jazz and Classical.
Books I have read lately encompass historical fiction around the time of Henry VIII, Elizabeth I or Arthur and tales of Avalon.  Other than that I read historical books related to my genealogy quests or for light reading, romances.
I enjoy watching movies and TV.  Some of the movies I would watch time and again is anything with Sean Connery or Kevin Costner.  Needless to say "Robin Hood" (which has them both!) is one of my all time favorites.  "First Knight", "Hunt for Red October", "Elizabeth", "Mrs. Brown", "Contact", "October Skies" and "Da Vinci Code" are all movies I would see repeatedly.
Jeff and I enjoy our three dogs, Piper, who is a beautiful but very hyper Golden Retriever who is nearly 4 years old.  At over 100 pounds she is a small horse!   Dotti is a cross between a Border Collie and Lab, who is also very high strung.   Dotti is the 'old girl' at eight and as such, rules the roost keeping us all in line!  Our newest addition is little Meisha, a sweet, quiet little Husky, with a lovely personality.  She arrived over Christmas 2007 and has settled in with Piper and Dotti exceptionally well.
