I'm so very greatful for the many Spark Friends I have made, especially in recent months, who have been there for me and who, too, have become friends. To all of you I say a great big THANK YOU, even though many of you may have given up on me as not being here. I am still here, but not as active as I would like because I am so involved in other issues of my life right now.
Happy Spring 2014!
1.To eat what I want, but healthy and in moderation.
2. To exercise every day, even if only for 20 minutes. Do the things that I enjoy...that way the exercise will not be a chore, but an enjoyable experience.
3 . To get the help of my SparkFriends to help me keep on track and to help me through whatever issues may arrise. And to sincerely promise to do the same for them.
4. To try to keep as positive a mental outlook as possible, whenever possible, to help myself with my problems with depression.
See "My Goals" for an outline of "My Program."
Most of my day is spent at work, so lets start there. I work in the Financial District of Manhattan, NY. I am a licensed Insurance Broker by profession and have been doing this for over 41 years. I plan on retiring sometime after March of 2014.
I live on the South Shore of Long Island (now you know where my User Name "SOUTHSHOREGUY"came from) and enjoy the immense difference between work in the city to living in an area near the seashore. After retirement, I plan on selling my house and buying a Condo on Long Island's North Fork, known for it's almost 60 Vineyards and over 20 wineries that are open to the public and which have tasting bars. I'm already hooked up with a Real Estate Agent in Cutchogue in helping me on my search.
I love Broadway Shows, but I enjoy acting even more. My last several acting jobs were at professional New York Regional Theatres doing Boardway Revivals. It's so nice to be paid for doing what you love! I absolutely love viewing an audience from the stage. I haven't been on the stage for a number of years now, due to health issues of mine and of my family, but I know that I will get back to this one day soon. It is going to take a lot of studying and practice of my monologues and songs from Musical Comedies, but I will get there. Auditions--here I come! Eventually!
I am also a professional Photographer with specialties in Weddings, Portraiture, Children, and Babies. My website is currently being updated. Once it is completed, I might post it here for those that may be interested.

Morning and Happy New Year… Thanks for leaving me the note. It reminded me of the great people I've met on here. I haven't been on this site for some time and it was good to reconnect as I read through some profiles. Looks like you have an exciting year ahead of you… congrats on the upcoming move! 2013 was a challenging year for me full of changes and growth. I've kept the weight off… in fact I've continued to lose a little more. Stay in touch… I'm excited to hear more about your move.
