My name is Helen. I am retired from full-time work in the social service field, and now have 3 part-time jobs. I am finally pursuing a long-time interest in acting, and have done some student and indie films.

Favorite place to see a movie

Any of the few remaining independent theatres: Portage, Music Box, Patio, etc.

Last great movie you saw

Life of Pi.

Your favorite all time movie

I have several. Going all the way back to the 40's, I have always loved the film Casbah (Tony Martin and Yvonne DeCarlo). I could name others by category, but not enough space here.

    Hi Helen, how are you. Notice that a lot people in our age group are single. I'd like to share a great dating site for over 50 mature singles. http://over50singles.webs.com/­­ My friend just had a success there. Hope it can help more single people find their love, romance, travel companion and friendship.

    Hello Helen. I'm so happy the festival season is starting up, we've been under the cold and rainy season too long! I look forward to listening to good music, eating good food and having great conversation with you this summer!

    Hi, Helen. Did you end up seeing August: Osage County? Great acting, but soooo depressing.

    Hi Helen,
    We were so glad to see you at DeLeece. Our members had some good ideas for more city events in the next few months and we'll be posting them here, as well as in our newsletters, which can be viewed by going to http://www.thetransitionnetwork.org/c...­­

    See you soon.

    Hi Helen, It'll be good to see you again--I believe we met at the TTN dinner in Greek Town in June.

    Did you mention that you can car pool? If you drive, I can meet you
    and share expenses. I am new with this group and I prefer not going alone and trying to find the group...

    We should have shared my blanket. That would have warmed both of us up.

    By the way, I like the new pictures.
