Introduction for heytoto

I'm a retired children's librarian, so it goes without saying that I love books--all kinds of books! I'm an online bookseller and I also love to research and write. I'm interested in genealogy and family history, as well as social history and social geography. I lived in India for a number of years and currently live in Lexington, Kentucky. Favorite food? I really enjoy cooking and eating South Indian food. I love to try new cuisines and, if I like the food, I like to learn how to cook it at home. I love to travel and, if I can't travel there, I love to learn about a new place by reading about it. I find (most) people pretty fascinating.

It was great finding you here, but disappointing that you haven't posted in awhile. I hope you'll be back soon.

I was a page at my local library as a teen. I loved keep the library all nice and organized.

Hi, Debbi--I'm here now! Sorry not to have been active after I first set up my account. Back in August, some Bubblers that I had a lot of respect for (including you, although I didn't know it!) were starting to work from Persona Paper. It looks like it might be a good writing home.

We have a lot of common interests! It's going to be very interesting to see what you have to contribute.

India! Oh my. Now that would be an adventure! I'm another refugee, looking for a quiet home without the drama. And I tend to read avidly.

That is interesting, I have a series of short Murder mystery stories . That the main character is a Librarian, and your picture looks just like how I picture her in my mind to look.

Indian cuisine is amongst my favorites. I love foods that have a lot of spices.
