We're from St. Paul, MN and both retired. I was a teacher for 35 years. Dave is a freelance editor and writer. We love books as you'll discover. We spend a lot of time in Brooklyn, NY visiting our sons, their wives and our grandson, but we also love to host and have met some interesting people. One of our favorite "date nights" is renting a movie and cooking a meal to fit the cuisine represented in it. We've explored Fijian, Ghanian, Japanese, Spanish, Indian and French cuisine as well as some I've chosen to forget!
