I live in Carolina, Puerto Rico, a suburb of San Juan with my youngest daughter, Pepi, our 12 year old dog and our cats Nemo and Yuki.
I work as an Administrative Officer for Scotia Insurance, a division of Scotiabank (One of Canada's largest international banks) They only have US branches in Puerto Rico.
I enjoy my job and I'm pretty good at it. Been in insurance Business for over 15 years.
Last Time, I was in the US Mainland was 2 years ago to send my oldest off to school at Ohio State before that it was 1984!!!!!!

School Story:

Wow I have loads of stories. Lets see if some of you remember:

My Addidas floating down the Zumbro River.

AFS Parties LOTS of stories there.....

Decorating the Homecoming Queen's float Senior year

I can honestly say I enjoyed my time at JM

If you could go back to high school, what would you do differently?

Taken the time to meet more of my fellow classmates.

Did you have one or more part time jobs while in high school? If so, dish the details.

I had several part-time jobs that I did'nt like but my time as a cashier at the skating rink by my house on Elton Hills stands out.

Did you have a car in high school? If so, dish the details.

We had cars growing up WOW!!!!

Did you attend any school dances? If so, with whom?

Senior Prom 1976 with Mike Dapron.

What three words would your friends have used to described you in 1976?

Crazy, wild, accent speaking puertorrican.

What three words would your friends use to describe you today?

Still the same but the descriptions are different Funloving, Friendly, Positive and for some strange reason I've lost the accent but always Very Proud to be a Puertorrican.

In 1976, what did you imagine as your dream job, and how close did you come to fulfilling the dream?

I wanted to be a nurse but ended in insurance. The important thing is I really love what I do so in the end I can't complain.

What do you know today, that you wish you'd known as a teenager?

Time passes way to fast wish I held on to those special moments with my friend's longer.

Using John Marshall as a starting point, what is the farthest point you've ever traveled to, and why?

The farthest I've traveled that I can remember was Europe in the summer of 1969 with my Grandma. Seeing I was born in Germany.

Other than a parent, who has been the most influential person in your life, and why?

My Mom and Dad were influencial but my Grandma and my Uncle and Aunt were also special in my life. My Mom and Aunt have passed on and Grandma is in a home so female influences have dwindled with the passing of time.

If you could invite 10 people, living or dead, to a dinner party, who would you invite?

You're all invited to
arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas)
Lechon (roasted pig)
Pasteles ??? sort of like tamales but with plantain mix and meat wraped in a plantain leaf and boiled
Tres leches (Cake drenched with coconut, condensed and evaporated milk)
But if you would prefer Turkey with stuffing, cranberry jelly, rice pilaf with pumkin pie we can do that also.

What have you always wanted to do that you haven't done yet?

Get a tatoo.

What do you like best about being in your 50s?

I'm in my 50's NOOOOOO!!!!!!!

What do you do for fun?

Read, watch TV and surf the net. I love reading Biography's and historic events also read Sci-Fi. Battlestar Galactica is my latest must see can't be disturbed while watching show.
