I’m a vintage female gamer gaming since the days of Pong. I live in beautiful central NC near my two sons and five grandkids. I’ve been a member of the Gaming Steve forum since March of 2005 and was chosen as the first forum moderator Dec. 2005. I’m also a member of Sagan4.com. I created and maintain the website and wiki for that project. I was very active in the Spore community and appointed a Sporemaster (moderator) on their forums. I’m also a not so active member of 2old2play.com and the gearbox forum. I’m currently a part of Godiva Gaming, the Fallout Zone and the ImmersiveCommunity.
I play a lot games. I used to play console games, mostly on the Game Cube. I now play more PC games most through Steam. Some of my favorites include the Borderlands series, Left 4 Dead, Minecraft and the Civilization series. I am a big fan of the Sims games and I’ve made several Sim Storytelling games using forum members. I’ve been told that Maxis and Will Wright have actually read them.
I have a YouTube channel with my LP series and I stream on Twitch every week.

Other random things about me:
Divorced, Cancer survivor, writer, blogger and former small business owner. I love to travel and have been to Europe, the Caribbean, Canada, Alaska and all over the US. My dream trip would be to Australia and New Zealand. In Oct 2013 I started doing Let’s Play on YouTube.
I started this blog site as a way to talk about things that I like. Games, movies, computers, electronics, travel, almost anything. I found myself playing games and wishing for a place to write about it. I’ve invited other people to join me as bloggers. They have different opinions and perspectives and knowledge in areas that I don’t.
I hope you enjoy my site and come back often. I welcome your comments.
