Hi, I'm Maxine. I live in the western Sierras with my husband Jim and our furry kids, Khaleesi and Zip. Oh yes, there is also the Rat Pack, Joey, Sammy and Dean. Unfortunately, we just recently lost Frank.
I was the co-owner of Earl Grey Manor Tea Salon. I'm now semi-retired and keeping busy in our Mountain Home with several passions. You might call me a wordsmith. I love words. I love reading. I love celebration. I love writing. I love tea. One of my favorite things to do is research. In that endeavor, I find fun and interesting tidbits to share with you. I hope you enjoy them
