Fun Facts

  • "I was born on the beautiful island of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, where the automobile license plates boldly proclaim, “American Paradise.”  Click here for a glimpse of some breathtaking scenery of the Virgin Islands: http://www.visitusvi.com/. However, I have spent most of my life on the U.S. mainland and I have visited 34 of the 50 states. I enjoy visiting historic homes, especially sites that were associated with the Underground Railroad. I’m looking for reasons to visit the remaining 16 states, but I may have to invent reasons for some of them!"
