What brought you to the Triangle area and keeps you here?

Moved here 5-1/2 years ago from Clearwater, FL because my kids and grandkids are here. I will stay here, also, because everything is available in the Triangle - the people are great, there is opportunity to learn and get involved with groups that do good in the community. NC doesn't have the heat/humidity of FL nor the ice of New England. I've lived in both and my tolerance for hurricanes and snow shoveling is gone. I do need to expand my social contacts, and this seems the perfect opportunity to do that.

What is your favorite kind of food and restaurant in this area?

Anything except Indian/curry is good. My favorite restaurant/bakery is Guglhup's in Durham.

What countries or USA state(s) have you lived in?

Visited many countries. Lived in NY, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Illinois, Missouri, and Florida. Mostly in Florida

What does 2nd Half (being 50+) mean to you?

A chance for good moments, good travel, meeting all sorts of new people, and giving back. My life has been good - now I'd like to share it.

What kind of adventures and socials do you like and can plan to do with 2nd Half?

There are foreign destinations I have in mind. I want to re-visit Venice, Florence, Rome, and Israel/Jordan. I like to participate in just about everything that doesn't involve camping.

Introduction

I am a veteran, then a college grad. I take 4 courses/semester at Duke/Ollie. I'm an avid non-fiction reader and nutty exerciser. Been told I have a dry sense of humor and am a fan of good rock, classical and Il Divo. I like meetups and talks.
