I sponsor two recent immigrants from Ecuador- One, Fernando, is in training to be an architect and the other, Fernando's girlfriend is just learning English. I provide for part of their tuition and living expenses and tutor both of them and help them with English writing and comprehension. This came about when they were working in the building I used to live in. I told him that if he was going to be willing to sacrifice current income and get an education, I would help him out, I am avid collection of english and american 18th and early 19th century furniture and ceramics - have been collecting for about 25 years. Ralph Wood - a well known potter is one of my favorite. I am a serious cook and collect wine. Reading - some of my favorite authors, everything from Tom Clancy & Brad Thor to books about economics. I enjoy going to antique shows.
