A few words about me and my site….

First off...I love this site!
It's my space and it's part of me.

I am part of that great generation known as "Baby Boomers". I was a late arrival to the generation. I am a parent and I also take care of my parents to some extent. You might say that I'm part of that sandwich generation...
