I'm purely a Californian. But I live in Washington. I like to read mystery novels, I like to some times paint, I read Star Trek novels, I am a volunteer dessert maker, who needs a job. I live with my brother, and with our pets and I do most of my baking in winter. But if you happen to be a neighbor and need a dozen muffins, some cookies or even a couple of pies for a bake sale or something, feel free to ask me to make them! My name is John, but I don't mind being occasionally called another name, long as nobody's around that the name might belong to. And as long, as the name isn't Seymour. Moved out of California, in 2018.
