"Nora's is probably a great idea. They're owned by the same people who had the Aromi d'italia gelato place in the mall that is gone now sadly. They still sell their Italian cookies from a kiosk in the mall (or at least they did a…"

"Have you tried Nora Cafe in the Normandy Shopping Center on Rt. 40? It's a little out of the way but still in HoCo. Definitely worth the trip for VERY tasty coffee and really good breakfast, lunch and dinner food."

Writing. Blogging. Tweeting. Humor. Music if it strikes me. Check out my blog Do I Amuse You? at http://morucci.blogspot.com/
How long have you lived in HoCo?
Off and on for decades.
Where's your favorite quiet place in HoCo?
Any of the lakes except Kittamaquandi when everyone else is at the fireworks.
Brief Bio
Graduated Oakland Mills in 1981, UMBC in 1985. Standardized testing and guidance tools of the 1980s told me to stick with math and analysis - that pays the bills but doesn't exactly satisfy my soul. So I started a humor blog and restarted guitar lessons in 2006, joined an improv group in 2008 and have been making major and minor course corrections ever since.
What's your favorite restaurant in HoCo?
Sir Walter Raleigh Inn and Columbo's Pizza - miss them both
What's you favorite HoCo Event?
Merriweather Post Concerts
Career
Lots of fun, then high school, then college (with lots of fun), big dreams of radio & TV, short stint in radio, media research, brief span of self-employment, more media research, midlife reassessment, continued media research, having fun again
Interests
Writing, music, television, humor.
Favorite News Source
Misquoted spin and conjecture - pick any fair and balanced source - and tweeters.
Favorite Music
80s New Wave - Anything considered modern/alternative rock - Classic rock
Favorite Movies
12 Angry Men, History of the World Part One, Anything with "Star" in the title (Trek and Wars, not "Is Born")
Favorite TV Shows
Way, way, way too many to list. How about CPO Sharkey?
