Hi everyone! My name is Diane, but most folks address me as Di. I just love to write, and that's why i'm here! I am really looking forward to learning the ropes, and I hope to meet alot of fun people in the process. My attitude is generally that of a positive nature; I have my grumpy days too :). Don't worry, I keep that to myself. I spent my childhood in Deutschland, yes Germany, and as a result I thoroughly enjoy learning, and reporting on different cultures in far away lands. I don't really have any particular niche that i've devoted myself to. I really enjoy reading about conspiracy theories, and I am considering doing some writing on this topic. I am currently unemployed by choice.Though my work experience and education lands me in the accounting/risk management arena; I have zero desire to write on these matters, lol. I have been married for 18 years to a super supportive spouse, and we have two beautiful, and challenging children, ages 17 and 7. I am learning to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, and enjoy reading about green matters. Well, I guess you pretty much know my entire life now...CHEERS!
