So who am I, and why should you care about my blogging world?
Good question. I sit in the middle of the country in Nebraska, but have a world wide view on life. Connecticut is my home state where I grew up and went to high school, I then took the leap and moved 1500 miles at age 17 to Oklahoma for college, then upon graduation moved north because I just couldn’t take two weeks of 100F weather during the summer.
Oklahoma State University did provide me with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science/Business and that has served me well and for twenty years I was involved in some way in the pet or animal health industry. My many career and jobs included working at a veterinary teaching hospital (Okla State), veterinary clinic, nutritional research laboratory, pharmaceutical company, pet store (Fish Bowl), farmers co-op (Farmland), pet food manufacturer (Oxbow Animal Health), swine equipment distributor, and a pet product distributor. Whew! So I love all things pets, including the people that go with them.
My travels have taken me to just about every state in America and I’ve been fortunate to visit England, France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Canada. I love to travel, I love the beach!
Why 3 Quarters Today?
I get very passionate about things in life, my husband once said, “Boy, stick a quarter in you and wind you up!”, my response, “Yup, and you can only take 3 quarters of me in a day” If you’re interested in more about how the 3 Quarters theory applies to my life you can read it in more detail, it’s a lot longer than one sentence. So hence I started blogging my life to record and curate my passions in one location.
I’m passionate about many things but I’d have to start with the internet. That’s one of my “Quarters”. My journey online started in 1991, when there was very little to see. How many remember CompuServe? I was on there. The Rush Limbaugh forum in the early 1990’s was great, I’m not too much of a fan of his now, he’s a political wonk and I can only take so much politics.
I am a social media junkie, my cyberlife is on Facebook, got on in 2006 shortly after the expansion from the college audience. My son added me so I had a friend, wasn’t he nice. The decision to start blogging my life started when with Pet & Kennel Distributors in 2010 and a way to learn WordPress, but has evolved to so much more.
Besides being able to be on the computer 24/7 what else do I like. Photography and food. They do go hand in hand, although some think a strange combination. But if you become a reader of this piece of internet real estate you will soon understand why.
I have three kids, who are United States Marines, one about to become a Marine, and a teenage daughter. Music, specifically the piano is another passion as I play for church during Lent and Advent. Two dogs, a Jack Russel and a Boxer share my life with my me and my husband. dog,
