As a teenager, I spent many hours in my room with headphones on listening to very loud music. Now, I get paid to do it. Still not sure how I managed that!
I grew up on a farm in Florida riding horses, motorcycles and surfing. I don't surf much anymore, but I still ride horses and motorcycles. I love nothing more than long, all day motorcycles rides. I'm sort of an adrenaline junkie and pretty much your all American girl, as happy in a pair of cowboy boots, or motorcycle boots, as I am in heels. Oh, and I'm a Gator fan. But I'll cheer for Georgia, as long as they're not playing the Gators.
I love to cook and I grow my own herbs. Not pot -- real herbs for cooking!
I love all types of music, but I think my favs are classic rock and country. They just seem to speak to me.

Watch the official trailer for Morgan Neville's new movie, Won't You Be My Neighbor?
Fox News claims an elderly woman in her 70s recently drove her mobility scooter onto Interstate 55 in Memphis, Tennessee. Several drivers called 911 before following the woman to make sure she was okay. The police quickly arrived and took the woman to a hospital where she received proper medical attention. At first, the woman refused to stop for cops. I so wanted to find video of this slow speed slight chase on You Tube but it's not there yet. Surely, someone video'd that. I'll keep looking. In the meantime I found this one.
And there was this guy 7 years ago:
If you haven't met The Zimmres, here they are. Some say they are the woeld oldest rock band and they are global superstars.
They have a 90-year-old lead singer and a cmbined age of more than 3,000.
There story begins with BBC documantary maker, Tim Samuels. Samuels set out to make a film about how badly the elderly are treated in Britian -- and decides to form a band with the lonely old people he finds in care homes, tower blocks and bingo halls. No one takes Samuel's idea seriously until he comes across record label owner Neil Reed - and U2 producer Mike Hedges - who believe that the elderly should be given a voice and manage to get access to the Beatles' old studio at Abbey Road.
On a magical day, the 40 old people - who have no musical background - come together at Abbey Road to record their version of The Who's 'My Generation', with 90-year-old Alf belting out the lead vocals.
Overnight, Alf, 99-year-old Winnie, 100-year-old Buster and the rest of the band become global sensations. Their video goes to number one on YouTube.
My friend Garry Smits, a sportswriter for the Florida Times Union in Jacksonville, FL helped me come up with this one. I will be asking listeners for more suggestions so feel free to email me @ julies@1049therebel if you have any to add.
