Originally from rural Iowa. Lived in Hawaii starting 1981. Traveled around the world and lived in Asia for 5 years . Built a house in Northern Thailand which was off the grid using solar power, water catchment devises, digging wells,and using generators The green way is the only way to go! . Had 5 children raising them in Hawaii and Thailand. Moved to Florida recently and fortunate enough to be working in a carer that I have been following from its conception- solar power. Hobbies are sailing, flying small planes, diving and playing chess. You can see why I moved to Florida.
