Hobbies Volunteering,walking my sweet dog...sadly no other hobbies!
About Me Just retired after 35 yrs with the NYS Health Dept-Bureau of HIV/AIDS Epidemiology. Also, took care of my mom (with the help of my daughter and husband!) who was recently placed in a nursing home so I volunteer there too and enjoy it. Now I work part time and monitor a 51 yr old gentleman with special needs. Wow, seems like I don't have much fun or am very interesting... So true! Haha Well, I do love retirement and love being home with our dog because she is very sick so glad to be with her. Well, that's it in a nutshell!

Showstopping Performance by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Hello Ellen,
I was so inspired and moved by Macklemore's performance about marriage equality - my first time hearing it. It was so touching and moving, I cried. I worked for the NYS Bureau of HIV/AIDS Epidemiology since 1992 (my husband and I are both retired now and I miss the work a lot but educating people is how we can solve many obstacles). Anyway, this performance is educating a new generation and reminding an older generation that change is here. And, thank you Ellen for educating the entire country on marriage equality. I wish you continued success.
Thank you.
Patty

Hello Ellen,
I just saw your show and the performance by Macklemore about marriage equality was amazing - my first time hearing it. I worked in the Bureau of HIV/AIDS Epidemiology, New York State Department of Health, since 1992 (my husband and I are both retired now but I miss it a lot). Anyway, I could not stop crying and this song touched me so deeply. I was impressed with the lyrics because this song will educate a new generation and will also remind an older generation that change is here. It was an amazing performance. Thank you Ellen, for "educating" the entire country on marriage equality.
Sincerely,
Patty
