Just the Facts
I was born in 1954 in Winnipeg. I have two brothers and two sisters. My parents died in 2010 and 2012. They lived in the house until 2008-9. My father tried to take care of my mother, who had Alzheimer disease. My brothers and sisters and their families are all living in Winnipeg. I have been married. I have a daughter, born in 1985 and a son born in 1987.
I am a lawyer. I work for the BC Government, after a career in private practice in Winnipeg.
I read a lot. I have started a Library Thing account to log the books I am reading. (I tried the Google Book thing and some of the Facebook applications; it was the most useful and least intrusive). I will probably eventually get a good sample of the books I have read into this system, but there are several hundred paperback mysteries, library books, and assorted other books that I will never log unless I happen to remember a title and have time to burn.
I cycle. I ran at times, but did not like it, and now I can't - arthriris. I have a kayak and a canoe, and had done some team paddling. I read a lot. I write my blog.
