I have been a teacher for over 30 years and love it. I like football (go Bills!), hockey (go Sabres!) and baseball (go Yankees!). Music is a big part of my life whether it be listening or performing. I enjoy all genres of music. I have sung in a number of groups ranging from large classical choral groups to taking the lead in a Motown/60's revival group. I also play trombone (and dabble with a couple of other instruments). I am heavily involved in the marching band and drum corps activity, too. I enjoy sampling beers and enjoyed my trips to the UK, stopping at pubs all over. Travel, walking, hiking, old movies (film noir/classic comedies) and drawing (cartooning) are other things I enjoy. I really enjoy relaxing on my patio with a good book, the radio and a cold one (or two or more!).
