About “The Queen”

Everything You Wanted to Know About “The Queen”

Do you remember the “plate spinning guy” on the old TV variety shows such as Ed Sullivan?  He had sticks, and would put a plate on top of each stick, until he had a number of plates spinning at one time?  That is me.  I am famous for keeping a number of plates spinning at top speed!  Sure, every once in a while, one comes crashing down, but that’s ok with me!  I still have dozens of others that are getting my attention- and it’s the sort of challenge I love! The way I look at it, I’m still doing more, and accomplishing more in life than most 5 people, so if one plate hits the dirt, move on!

Southern California has been my home since 1981, and I am a licensed, and practicing Realtor. I am a mom of grown children,  a writer and  former humor columnist. A stand up comedienne.  A dancer. A traveler. The hostess with the mostest…….  And I love to create fun life experiences, as often as possible.  The more that is on my plate, the happier you will find me.  I am often told that my life is very rich, very exciting, and unusual.  I’ll cop to all of those descriptions.

Thus, the reason for this blog.  To bring my friends, and soon to be friends into this unusual, varied, rich and exciting life I lead.  And hopefully, to inspire you to also do things that might be a bit out of the ordinary, and to add the richness of variety (and craziness) to your life! If I should inspire you to step out of your box, and into a larger life arena by trying even 1 new and exciting adventure, I’d consider my blog the ultimate success.

I am not currently married (although I have been on more than a few occasions…..), but I have a fabulous man I currently live my life with,  to the absolute fullest. I have 2 adult children of my own, Justin and Alyse, and 2 adult stepchildren, Suzanne and K.T.,  from previous marriages that I still lay claim to.  As a result, I also have a granddaughter, Nell who is 10, and resides in Houston with her mom, Suzanne.  Our home is full when they come for visits once or twice each year.

You’ll find that  am a bit irreverent, so if a bit of bawdy humor, the use of the F word, or if a bit of sex talk is offensive to you, this may not be the best fit for you!  However, if you have a passion for life, jump in here with both feet!

Thanks for bringing me into your home and sharing this fabulous, fun filled adventure I call life!
