Story
Introduction
Born and raised in upstate New York, I have one son and six grandchildren. I was a single parent for many years, went to college when my son started his college studies. 

I've recently retired from a Seattle non-profit agency. My hope is to find a part-time job soon, doing something fun (I'll know it when I see it).

I've been blogging since December 2004, using a variety of blogging platforms. I have another blog on WordPress, http://bburcroff.wordpress.com/
