  • What else ...

    We have a large family in which five children have successfully transitioned to work and homes of their own. Everyone still likes everyone else and enjoys sharing holidays together. We are able to adapt to many different kinds of people and lifestyles, but we also enjoy spending time together and alone. We have lived and worked in Europe, Asia and the Middle East; much of it in developing countries; and feel we have contributed positively to the societies and cultures in which we have lived and traveled. We work hard and enjoy people.
