Other things I like

my twins, traveling, Amnesty International, some workout like skiing, piloxing and pump, books, cello, chocolate, margaritas and cosmos, ladies of jazz, Bridges of Madison county, and of course my dearest best friends: girls, you know who you are!, and my (often empty) not-to-do list...

Things I don't like

greed, injustice, ruling techniques, and ... debok.net - it is fake and I have nothing to do with it!
