I have many interests and hobbies. I like to do just about anything as long as I am in the right company. The right person can make the most mundane thing seem exciting and fun. I love to be in or near the water(surfing, diving, swimming)in fact I live on the water in Long Beach Island New Jersey and no please dont ask me about the show Jersey shore.
(Thats LBI short for Long Beach Island)

I am just feeling out this site to see what there is to offer. Its always nice to have an intelligent conversation about the obstacles we seem to face. Getting another persons outlook on life cant hurt either. I was diagnosed with Crohns disease in '98 and after pretty much living in hospitals I elected to have a total colectomy with an ileostomy. I was a very active person before my surgery and grabbed life by the horns. I think I am beginning to lose grip of those horns and would love to get back into the traveling and great times I once took for granted.
