About Me: In retirement for the past two years, I've been expanding my ability to weave lavender, manage a small farm, and enjoy people. Recently I decided to make my nutrition as alkaline as possible for the next year, and to write about it in case others are interested in this discipline. I hold master's degrees in counseling psychology (Lesley) and in public health (University of Hawaii), with graduate certification in gerontology. Believing as I do that nutrition can't be isolated from social life, my blog probably will include a lot of the latter. I raised my family in Boston, and return as often as possible to visit my beautiful grandchildren.
