I've been tagged by Carrie of Noelle Garrett Designs. Thanks, Carrie. Now I must list seven facts about myself. This is fun, yet challenging. I want to seem at least interesting, if not exciting, and still tell the truth :o) I can only promise my facts will be truthful.

1 I love jazz. As a teenager I was so passionate about it. In a time when Elvis Presley was everyone's idol, my idol was Max Roach, a drummer. My dream was to have a son who played the drums. My idol is now Thelonious Monk, but I do have a son who plays the drums.

2 My all time favorite thing to eat is ice cream, especially Ben and Jerry's. However, I can still remember Edy's White Out. I had it once and searched and searched only to discover it was a limited flavor. I even wrote to them and asked them to bring it back.

3 It has only been 5 years since I have been able to travel. I have been to Nice and Paris alone and to Rome with a school trip. The only place I would return to in a heartbeat is Nice. I always thought it would be Paris.

4 I was raised to believe that girls should get married and have families and stay at home and live happily (or unhappily) married ever after. It did not work for me. I was divorced with 2 babies 3 months and 15 months old. I raised my sons alone and have lived alone for so long, I don't know how I would behave if I had a husband. Not at all what I thought would happen, but I am happy with my life.

5 My son, the drummer, followed in my footsteps and became a teacher, even though I warned him not to do it. He is a brilliant teacher who gets measurable results, and he loves it. I am so glad he did not listen to me. My other son is handicapped; he has a big heart and is a history buff.

6 I was born in Philadelphia, but moved to New York almost 25 years ago. I love where I live in the Bronx. Even though I live in apartment, I have a back yard. It is so peaceful and quiet. One of my friends from Manhattan said living here it was like living in the country. I love it.

7 I published 2 books and am working on a third.

So now I must tag some people. I have chosen

Theresa of Cottage Violets

Cathy of Treasured Heirlooms

Silena of The Enchanted Valley Boutique

Susan of The Dutch Rose

And the winner is....

Thanks to everyone who left a comment for the giveaway. There certainly are a lot of great blonde movie stars, male and female. I used the random number generator on the mathgoodies site. The winning number was 20. The twentieth person to post was Cynthia, so she is the winner. The prize is a six ounce bar of Aloe Soap, a nine ounce jar of Primrose Moisturizer, and a 5 ounce bottle of Moisturizing Mist. All are scented with a fragrance called Marilyn's Marvelous Melons, which is a delicious blend of watermelon and berries.
