I am an aging baby boomer who is a little bit artistic, a little bit crafty, who doesn't read as much as she should. I am still learning...and in some cases re-learning. My vocabulary isn't as strong as it once was and I have a desire to improve it.
I have an interest in american history - in particular the civil war and the great depression but I would rather watch it than read about it...the movies are my adventure, my escape, my preferred learning tool. Very often, after watching a period story, I'll check for accuracy online.
