ex-pat Canadian living bucolic life on the shores of Lake Ontario in upstate NY. I garden. I hate snails. I love dogs. I live with my housemate of over 12 years, a rabbit-chasing dog, and amateur mouser cat. Retired teacher. My wish is to spend hour upon glorious hour, sifting through documents in National Archives, time-traveling in little white (website hidden) other words, I enjoy doing genealogical research. I only have internet access at this point but hope to visit the archives at Kew and one of these days stop off in Ottawa as well.
