    We have a tiny vineyard and would love to have some help with it plus being a friend/companion to my son he is wheel chair bound. He has 24/7 personal care but it would be great if he had someone else to chat, play cards, go to town, beach, etc. Be sure that you have a valid drivers license.
    Also good for you to have a bit of Spanish.
    Mario is fluent in english, spanish and french, has studied in Switzerland, UK plus NYC for grade school.
    We used to live in New York and Virginia but moved here almost 4 years ago and love it.
