    • and more…
  • I love technology.
    • I prefer Mac over Windows, but prefer Android over iOS.
      • I have an old computer that I installed Linux on. Don’t use it as often as I’d like.
      • Had a Blackberry once. Hated it.
  • I love dogs!
    • When I was a kid, we got a Jack Russell Terrier named Freckles. (He got sick, and we had to put him down when he was 9 years old.)
    • When I was a teenager, while Freckles was still around, we got a Shih Tzu, named Meeka.
    • Meeka had 6 puppies. (She got huge when she was pregnant!!)
    • Because we had just lost Freckles, we decided to keep the runt of Meeka’s litter, and we named her Sadie.
    • After I moved out of my parent’s place, I got a dog who was one of 8 puppies born to a Border Collie Corgi cross who had mated with a Shih Tzu. (I know, right!!!!) I named him Mosley. He is super cute, really smart (especially for being 50% Shih Tzu), and has tons of personality! He is like no other dog I have ever seen. I love him to bits!
