Date men and women from United States / California / Goleta, 79 year old

Date men and women from Goleta, United States. My friends would describe me as fun-loving, outgoing, intelligent, and talented as a writer.
Some would say attractive and generally well dressed in inexpensive clothes (usually pants & tops, so I have pockets!). I love puns and word games, am grateful to be alive and healthy in my seventh decade and blessed with 10 adorable grandchildren, some in college.
I would like to meet a good conversationalist with a sense of humor who enjoys movies and current events, is open-minded about religion and politics, and preferably knows something about email and web sites. I laugh out loud at satirists like Stephen Colbert; I love Bill Moyers & Company and trust PBS News Hour.
Don't need a husband, but am open to male friendships and affectionate companionship. Good character is important to me, and I value personal habits of cleanliness and courtesy.
