I live in Wisconsin with my wonderful husband and pre-teen daughter. We also share our 1921 Bungalow with a Rat Terrier, 3 kitties, and an African Grey parrot who won't stop telling us what to do.

The most common question I get is this one:
What does DuhBe mean? I have 4 answers:
1. A star in the northern sky which points to Poloris so you never lose your way.
2. DuH! Be! (a great way to live your life)
3. The arabic word for bear, and I sometime make Teddy bears
4. A fun word to say when doing ubby-dubby on the 1970's PBS show called Zoom
