well, i read a lot, history, mystery, anything that strikes my fancy. into wine, lately doing lots of movies & tv series. exercise every day (for what it's worth-lol). love to eat most cuisines, which requires major diet cheating (damn it ;-)). the covid thing is driving me nuts:social isolation & especially not seeing my grandsons. haven't seen seen them in 2 months (actually, have not seen the new one yet! he's a month old). was in the bar/restaurant biz for years & was working p/t, easing to retirement when the current covid crisis struck. probably will just go straight to retirement now & try to enjoy whatever turns into the so-called "new normal". but, life is still good (beats the alternative!) would be great to have someone to socialize with--carefully now, but, hopefully, soon, the way we used to be human together.UPDATE 12/16/20: IF YOU'VE COME THIS FAR--I'M SUSPENDING ACTIVITY ON THIS SITE UNTIL THE COVID ISSUE IS RESOLVED. NO POINT IN THIS UNTIL IT'S POSSIBLE TO MEET IN PERSON SAFELY. FOR EVERYONE'S WELL BEING. STAY SAFE! (ALSO, SO FAR IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE THIS SITE EMBODIES THE SAYING "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"--JUST SAYIN').
