Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I practiced as a psychologist. I enjoyed my career but now it’s time to do something else with my life. I’ll be using this place to organize and share all the things I love doing now. Among the topics I like to study and write about are folklore, medieval life and times, American history up to the end of the Civil War, Connecticut and New England, travel, animals, plants and gardening. I also will be posting reviews of books I’ve enjoyed. On a personal note, I’m married, have a son and a daughter, both doing well on their own now, and 2 adorable little grand-daughters, three cats and two grand-dogs. I work part time at two local historic house museums, and love to read, knit, and travel, especially to France, England, and Italy. And I spend a lot of time on-line. A lot.
