    -48 yrs old
    -SWOK (single, never married, no kids), but do have nieces and nephews.
    -C.P.A. with a Masters Degree. (As a liberal, I'm in the distinct minority in the business world, and my career has suffered because of it.)  
    -Been the victim of age and sex discrimination.  
    No military experience, but my father is a WWII vet (Army), and have a non-blood relative who was in the Navy.
    -Third generation native Californian.
    -Umpteenth generation descendent of colonial settlers (early 1600s).
    -GGGGGG grandfather signed the DOI.
    -Registered Dem since I was first eligible to vote (1976 was my first election.)
    -Used to own a townhouse, sold it when I moved 400 miles to take a new job (which disappeared soon thereafter because the company was sold to a larger one that terminated all the employees.) Now can't afford to buy a house in the current market where I reside (would need to move about 100 miles out to find something in my price range.)
    -Believe the death penalty is valid in certain cases (such as serial killers, cop killers)
    -Presbyterian by bloodline and upbringing.  But at this point in my life, not sure what I believe in, other than the Golden Rule. (Believe the 1st amendment covers the freedom from religion, if one so chooses.)
    -Sierra Club member and outings leader.
    -Politcal activities: gathered signatures for ballot measures, helped on state legislature and congressional races.
    My TV is 25 years old.  My furniture (except a bed and couch) is family hand-me-downs.  I bought 3 cars in a 22 year period.
