Jo, thanks for the good wishes. Sorry, I thought your birthday was on the 3rd - many
happy returns for tomorrow.

My birthday is on the 5th - and yes, the half-century mark is a big one! I admit I woke up
yesterday and had to take several deep breaths ... but then I realized I can "officially" join
the Elders Tent, which felt great!

My goal for this year is to get more exercise and increase my raw food intake to 50 percent
of my diet. (This is gonna be hard because I am a cooked food addict!)

A bit about me ... I became a vegetarian for ethical reasons almost 20 years ago while living
in England, and have been a vegan for about 15 years. People always tell me I look younger
than my age, which I wholeheartedly attribute to my plant-based diet. However after going
through menopause (I was hit with it early, like many long-time vegetarians) I am carrying
around 20 lbs. of extra pudge which I'm hoping to get rid of this year.

I've been living in northern New Mexico for almost 10 years. My partner and I are getting
tired of the long, hard winters here in the mountains. He has rheumatoid arthritis and the
snow and cold are really tough on him. We are hoping to move to the Palm Springs area in

Again, thanks for the good wishes - I look forward to getting to know all of you!
