Parisch is a songwriter & musician with a passion for singing, Pamela is hydrogeologist (water & rock engineer) and she is the minister for FUN. We are in our early 40s, have no kids, like the finer things in life - good food, fine wine, great coffee, hanging out friends and getting to meet new people. We are liberal in our outlook and all peoples and dogs are welcome - we used to have a big old Labrador horsey/dog until recently but she had to say Au Revoir! So, we are used to big dogs around and the house and garden are dog friendly. The beach is near also so dog lovers need not worry about bringing a dog to the city. We run a house concert series on the first saturday of most months where we invite professional musicians to play for 20-50 people in our spacious living room. These are very special occasions. We do not own a TV but love to watch DVDs on our projector and 8 Ft home cinema screen. Balance and fun are important, LOVE and laughter are crucial.
