About the Blogster
I was christened Maureen McCarthy (no middle name, my parents were tired). I grew up in Lockport, NY, hometown of Joyce Carol Oates, Timothy McVeigh, and the largest locks on the Erie Canal (thus the name). I graduated from Amherst College in 1989 and moved to East Pharsalia, NY, with my husband Andy. We have owned and operated a farm for the past twenty years. I have three teenage boys (Gads!). I am a teacher of too many things at DCMO BOCES.
