 Bridge is by far my favorite endeavor.   Away from the table, I enjoy reading, hiking,  Wikipedia, puzzles, board games, and practice public speaking at my local Toastmasters club.   I don't read the newspaper or watch television - this occasionally puts me in some rather curious situations!   For my "day job" I work part-time as a pharmacist.  I live in Castro Valley, California with my husband Lew who is also my best friend and has been a great bridge coach for me. We have no pets except for Schroedinger's cat.
