About Me

Hi ! my name is Dale Baseri. I am 50 years old. I work as a computer programmer. My heritage is German and Polish. I have 2 teenagers, a son in middle school and a daughter who is a freshman in college. I play the violin in a community orchestra. I like birds and butterflies. My favorite color is red. My favorite flowers are dahlia's, sunflowers and zinnia's.

My favorite season is Fall, followed by Winter. (I am not a fan of summer heat or the beach).

My favorite holidays are Halloween (its my sons birthday) and Christmas.

I love Italian food, peanut butter and all types of chocolate (so glad it is one of the main food groups!)

I am a tea drinker (not fond of lemon or green tea which tastes like grass to me).

I send postcards from every place I visit to my family and friends. I love to receive postcards and save every one I receive. I am originally from NY & I write to my elderly relatives each week, love to receive something in the mail that is not a bill! :)

I am really easy to please and take delight in anything that someone has taken the time and care to send me!

Favorite Music

I like classic Rock. Love 80's music & classical music since I play the violin.

Favorite Books

I love mysteries, & thrillers. I like books by Louise Penny and Stephen King.

I still read a daily newspaper, prefer that to reading it online.

I am also a huge fan of all the 'ladies' magazines - Woman's Day, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Self, Martha Stewart, Oprah, US weekly.... I get them all and catch up on them while I'm on the treadmill.

Favorite Movies

I love all the Marvel Movies! Huge Fan! I also enjoy the animated Disney movies, psychological thrillers, and mysteries. Not a fan of comedies.

Favorite Television

Anything with doctors, lawyers or superheroes! I also like The Handmaids Tale.

Favorite Crafts

I scrapbook 12x12 albums. Not into digital scrapbooking, I'm old fashion and still print out my pictures from my trusty Nikon camera.

I have just taken a class in how to hand knit. I made a small blanket and will attempt to make another on my own. I do a tiny bit of crocheting and knitting but am not very good at reading the patterns so am still at the beginner level.

I.AM.IN.LOVE. with Anything from punch studio brand of paper products/cards/wrapping paper (whenever my local Tuesday Morning store has the wrapping paper I must buy every roll for my collection!)

Lover of vintage images also.

Until I joined swap-bot I did not own any washi-tape, however after receiving some really nicely decorated envelopes I just bought myself a package of 50 rolls! Looking forward to sharing.

My son and I like to collect flattened pennies from tourist places we visit. I put them on scrapbook pages.

Comment: Thank you for the postcard of a field of flowers. Love the Disney stamp! When I am not on the computer for school, I am cooking, scrapbooking, or reading. We try to do a daily walk with the dog. Thank you for your kind words about teachers and administration. I miss school and routine.
Response: hello, thank you for the nice rating. I hope you and your family find something fun to do together this weekend as we are all staying home! Stay safe! Dale

Comment: Hi Dale! What a pleasure it is to have you as my partner again. <3 It must have been fate that has brought us together again. LOL Hopefully next time it will be you on the receiving end. My classes are going good, thanks for asking. I just had my midterms and they went well, so I'm looking forward to the summer!!! I'm in community college right now so I live at home with my mom. I'm trying to knock out all of my gen. ed. stuff and then transfer, so I study voice with a private teacher. I'm not rushing anything, because I'd like to be stable in my technique before transferring. I plan on staying about two more years, but I'm not sure yet. So cool how you play in a symphony orchestra. I looked you guys up and watched the overture for Barber of Seville. You guys are great! Did you just do the overture to WSS or the whole musical? Challenging music, but it's so beautiful. Bernstein was an absolute genius!!! What else are you working on? I'm not currently working on any operas, but there are a couple of arias I'm working on at the moment. "Prendi per me sei libero" from "L'elsir d'amore" by Donizetti and "Donde lieta usci" from La Boheme. I'm sure you know who wrote that ;-) I keep my voice "in-shape" by singing everyday, usually, but not over doing it. Even if I don't work on any of the music I'm studying, I always find some time in the day to fit in some vocalizing or exercises. I haven't had any recent meetups with my snail mail society; not since January, and we probably won't be having any soon with all of this corona virus stuff going on. Maybe in the summer? I'm staying hopeful! Anyways, sorry for the essay LOL and thanks for the lovely message. I can't wait for the next time we're paired up again. <3 -Virginia
Response: Hello Virginia - thank you for the delightful message and nice rating! I am very bummed that our orchestra rehearsals/concerts are cancelled until perhaps our summer performance in August. (Darn Corona!) We were going to be doing Dvorak 9th Symphony & Beethoven's Piano concerto #3 in May. Sigh. Good to hear that you were able to finish up with your exams before they closed everything down! My college freshmen just started her online classes today. We had to go to her dorm and bring all her stuff home :( Not the way she had hoped the semester would end. I do not think your snail mail group will be able to meet for several weeks at least! I am trying not to get discouraged but it is a bummer this social distancing does not sit well with me at all! Until our next time! Yours in pen, Dale

Comment: Hi Dale! Thanks so much for the super cute postcard and the very thoughtful message. The act of you taking the time to really read my entire profile really made my day. :-) I think it's so great you play the violin! My mother is a violinist. Yes, being in a snail mail society is very fun. It's usually every other month that we meet up for about two hours, write letters, make mail art, and chat. I love it. You should definitely look into signing up for Postcrossing! It's a very cool concept and I've met a lot of lovely people there. LOL Diamond painting is, in a way, simialr to cross-stitch, but with plastic beads or "diamonds". You place these sparkly "diamonds" onto the pattern printed on a canvas and it creates a very sparkly picture! It's a very tedious process, but the results can be really beautiful. I saw the Downton Abbey movie in theaters several months ago. How did you like it? I thought it was great. Your grandma only lives about 2 hours from me- how funny is that?? What a small world! Thanks again for the great postcard! All the best, Virginia <3
Response: Hello Virginia, glad the postcard arrived ok. Now that you describe the Diamond Painting, I think I have seen it demo'd at the Great American Scrapbook Convention that is held here every year in June. Gorgeous pictures when they are all completed. I really enjoyed the Downton movie & wished the show was still on PBS.... love those period movies... Wish I could come to your snail mail society - sounds like a blast! Thanks for the nice rating and have a fantastic day! Dale
