We have hosted international college students from many countries over the last 10 years and lately we have been hosting Chinese high school students during the school year and DuPont student interns during the summer months. It has always been a mutually rewarding experience.
Both Karen and myself work from home and therefor spend most of our time here. I am a musician and regularly play the piano at retirement homes. Karen works for Computer Science Corporation and did EDI work for DuPont for many years.
We both love music and go to many concerts, We also love walking our dogs through the neighboring parks.
