    Buffalo is where I was born.
    Canisius College is where I went to school!  I loved it!
    Does anyone like being crafty, just like me?
    Every single day I read a book.  I like mysteries, memoirs, beach reads, and best sellers.
    Fountain drinks are my secret love, especially if they are filled with Diet Pepsi!
    Grammar is something I am very picky about!
    Holidays are great, especially Christmas!

    Onions and mushrooms are disgusting!
    Patrick is the name of my husband.
