About Me

I'd like to share what I know about: Books, travel in England, France, and Italy, knitting and other fiber arts, History

After 21 years as a school psychologist, I now work part-time at two local historical museums, giving tours and teaching special programs. This leaves me more time to enjoy my little grandchildren, and pursue my interests in reading, travel, history, and needlework.
