I am 66 years old and live in Southern Ohio. I am a Stage 3 cancer survivor of 15 years (I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in Oct. 2001 - the cancer was in my left breast and broke into my rib cage). I am doing well and though my lifestyle has changed a bit, I am optimistic on continued health.

I would like to eventually go back to Honolulu, Hawaii. I was there during my Army years and would love to see the Islands again but in a healthier body.

I took a fall 6 years ago and blew out my left knee. It has been a long haul recovering from the fall and I've had to change the way I exercise to accommodate the injury. I use a stationary bike with Bike-O-Vision DVD. I may be in my living room but I'm traveling thanks to these exercise DVDs. I also use free weights and light cardio, too.

I follow earth religions and enjoy the books of Edain McCoy, Starhawk, and Z. Budapest. I have begun studying The Gnostic Gospels. The Goddess is with us all.

I enjoy lots of music: Loreena McKennitt, Sissel, Renaissance, Enya, Steeleye Span, Sarah Brightman,Shirley Bassey, Chloe, Cher, Linda Eder, Melveen Leed, Pink, Celine Dion, Bond, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and soundtracks to movies which I like.

Movies: The Bourne trilogy; Sense and Sensibility; Emma, Pride and Prejudice; Persuasion, etc. The early movies of Barbara Stanwyck, Ray Milland, Humphrey Bogart, etc.

I also love to watch horror movies. There is nothing like a good scare!

Television: The Game of Thrones, Gotham, Ink Master, The Good Witch series & movies,Outlander, The Terror, RuPaul's Drag Race, the new and old Poldark series, the original Hawaii Five-0, and The original Star Trek.

Favorite Aerobic/Cardio personalities: Gilad, Leslie Sansone, Jane Fonda's new DVDs, Margaret Richardson, Older and Wiser workouts; Gin Miller,

Favorite Workout: Chair aerobics and I enjoy Free Weights

Books: Historicals and mysteries. I especially love the books of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child; James Rollins' thrillers, Clive Cussler, and the Winston Graham's Poldark series
