1. Cindy
2. Macedon, NY (Between Rochester and Syracuse)
3. 42, May 9th
4. About 20 years, maybe more, I helped my Mom a lot as a teen
5. None-by choice
6. 2 dogs currently, 4 year old Fox Red Lab, and a 10 month old Lab/Cattle dog. Want more, especially kitties! I have always had them, but mine passed away as they were all 18 yeas old, and I lost one early at 4.
7. I love to cook, be out in nature, be creative via home or art or craft projects, read, spend time with my husband and dogs, camp, and find ways to make my own home and personal care products.
8. A Tie between Fall and Spring! Fall is the best because of the scents, the food, the temperature, all the produce...Spring because it gives us hope after a MISERABLE winter here in Upstate NY!
9. I am kind of a Gluten Free, Natural foodie, but if I had to pick something it would be seafood.
10. That which doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

10. Favorite Quote: "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - T. Roosevelt
