Hi I'm Joanne. I live with my husband, Ted in Upstate New York. I have a BS degree from SUNY Oswego in Marketing and MS from SUNY Technology in Business Management. I love life, exercise, cooking, baking, food, wine, and of course animals. I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian as of 3 years ago. As for my favorite animals: horses, dogs, furry little critters. Not crazy about creepy, crawly, slimy, little things. I would like to comment and receive comments on loving life, getting over the obstacles of life, loving food and preparing it - all kinds because my husband is a mammal meat eater! Lets talk about happy stories of our dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds... get the picture? Don't forget exercise. That is a very important part of my life and I get up at 4AM 4 days a week to work out - hard.
