About the Woman in the Middle

Hello! My name is Kim and I am a woman, living smack dab in the middle of life. I live with my husband and my two daughters in the brand new city of Jurupa Valley, the newest city in California. Both of my daughters are in college, one lives at home and one lives about 40 minutes away during the school year on her college campus. I was laid off earlier this year for the second time in two years from a local government job. As a woman smack in the middle of life, I decided that it was time to get off the hired/laid off carousel and do something else with my life. That will be just one of the many things I will talk about in Woman in the Middle.

thanks for the like on my blog! Is your city, by any chance, built out of Legos? That would be cool.

Oh, I wish! Wouldn’t that be fun??? So colorful! But, unfortunately, no! Just the displays I saw at Downtown Disney!

Hello, a little word about Bath, England. Its actually a world heritage city, One of its striking features is that it was all built in the same neo-classical Georgian style in the honey-coloured local stone, often called sandstone, but which is in act Oolite. Bath was a city built on wool (Broad Street was called that as broad swathes of red cloth (for the military) used to be swathed across the street, gambling and riband living, and property speculation. Even today you find odd little lanes with street names and no buildings. This is because the investors went bust before they could build houses on the street!

The best time to view bath is around dawn on a Summers day, walking down from St Stephens to the Royal Crescent and thence into the Centre itself. The eomansarly morning sun on those honey coloured buildings is absolutely gorgeous.

As a spa town, Bath has a history stretching back to the Romans, the archeology of whom is remarkably well preserved and laid out. It is expensive to do the Roman tour, as much of it lays underground (which was once ground level). However when you pass by the front of a Roman temple to Minerva in an underground setting, you will have a memory that will last your whole life.

Jane Austin knew Bath well, and the period details throughout the locale are stunning reminders of that age. Tiny little buildings with room for one chair in them right next to the road were there to keep pallaquin bearers dry in between jobs!

And quiet street used to have wooden cobbles as not to disturb the patients in the adjacent hospital.

I had the pleasure of residing in Bath for a while, and have no hesitation about recommending it to others as a place to visit.
