An Ohioan by birth and raised there. Husband(my high school sweetheart), his first job moved us to South Carolina where we lived for 5 years. I taught school there for three years and with the birth of our first child, I began a new career as a full-time mom or domestic engineer! Husband’s next job moved us to the St. Louis, MO area where our other 6 children were born(no, we’re not Catholic or Mormon, the usual questions we get for having 7 kids!), and after 19 years there, husband’s newest job moved us to Rolla, MO in South-Central MO, a gateway to the Ozark Mountains and a major college town, too.
I look at world and US issues with a conservative eye, I am a christian in my faith, love reading, a bit of flower gardening, walking, needlepoint, home school our children until the 8th grade, and I love classic movies. When our local newspaper, The Rolla Daily News, put out a call for bloggers, I volunteered and was accepted. The aim was and still is, to write two blogs a week. Thus, I decided one blog a week would be about pop culture, political, community, or raising kids type of topics. My other post, usually on Fridays, is dedicated to a classic movie that I have seen and enjoyed. I am doing my part to educate those younger than me to check out classic movies; black and white film doesn’t mean boring!!!
