We are a married couple, more than 40 years, with children and grandchildren who live in California and India. Our cultural background is a good fit with the neighborhood where we live, in that our values and experiences are a good match for our neighbors. We enjoy all ages of people, and belong to a church that has a mix of ages and races. During the years of raising our family, we lived in several parts of the United States, and for 3 years in the country of Panama. We have both worked, one of us in the business community, the other in education, and in pastoring the young children in our church. Our travel experience includes all countries in South America, several countries in Asia, India, Europe and Africa. Our collections include special Nativity Sets (Christmas scenes) from over 40 countries.
