About:You might call me "Jane of all trades, mistress of none"; "all" is definitely an exaggeration but I am interested in lots of "trades" and try to master at least the basic steps so that I understand what the real masters are talking about. I like to call myself a bungler but my friends said I couldn't use this nick anymore :) So I might be an ambitious amateur. When I think back to my childhood, one of my favorite books was a leather bound encyclopedia from 1930 or so, terribly heavy and I swear I read it from A to Z ^_- I was born in Austria but in 1999 we moved to the US. If my projects leave me time I work as a nurse, or is it the other way round? Anyway, cooking, gardening, or working on my projects is a wonderful stress relief.
