I have worked in various service related fields while raising twin daughters. Retired. Wrote a book Road Signs, Shifting Gears Between Two Worlds a mini spiritual bio journal. Self published author available through Amazon.com or Trafford Publishing. Go for the Kindle digital version..it's cheaper and I didn't write for the money end of it.

I like to sing and I'm included on QuickStar CD with my original song "Who" available on the "Going Back Home" CD on I-tunes. Name of the track is listed as by Road Signs. I am an Indie artist with CDBaby. I have one album with 11 originals  called Road Signs.

I also like HubPages because it's a classy joint and well run.
