We are a school teacher and administrator. We love to travel North America and Europe. We spent one year in Tuscany and love all things Italian. (Thus an espresso machine and a panini grill live in the kitchen along with an endless supply of olive oil.) We are sailors with a small boat moored near Annapolis. We spend time on schooners and sloops in New England. We are avid readers and movie-goers. We love to cook (and eat!) Discussion of politics and social issues is optional. We have two grown children and two, small, friendly cavalier King Charles spaniel dogs.
