    I am a twice retired Spanish teacher. I wandered into the area of San Sebastian de Garabandal in 1969 on my first trip to Spain to meet the people whose language I was teaching and looking for adventure. I found it in Garabandal (and other places) and have returned thirteen more times to spend a total of some four years in and near that village.

    I have spent quite a bit of time in the Santander Chancery over the years (The Vicar General recognized me there in May 2012 and invited me into his office to talk). Garabandal Journal, Garabandal Magazine and Needles have published the accounts of some of these adventures

    I haven't participated much in blog sites but I am now, and always have been, interested in sharing what I know about Garabandal and in learning from others. I especially appreciate those who cite prime sources (I graduated with a degree in history from Iona College, New Rochelle, New York where one of the two or three things I remember is the importance of researching prime sources. The professors drummed that into us.

    I play the violin (presently on sabbatical in order to prepare a manuscript for publication) with the Curry/Del Norte County Symphony Orchestra and I fish for salmon in the Pacific Ocean five minutes away.

    Our three children learned Spanish as their first language. The oldest started kindergarten in Santander while we were living there in 1979.
