UCLA We met at UCLA, twice. The first time we met was in October 1966. We were both buying hamburgers at one of the student cafes to feed a stray dog (pretty smart dog to go to a university campus to cage food.) The second time we met was in a Russian Language class the following January. That seems to be the short form of the story of our lives together, pets and Russia. Go Bruins!

flagOur home is in Ottawa, Canada's national capital. We enjoy life in the northern portion of the temperate zone. Ottawa experiences one of the most extreme climates of any national capital on earth, from hot and humid in the summer to frigid in winter. It actually gets colder here than Moscow on average (there goes another Russian myth). Come tour the Parliament buildings and learn about Canada's glorious history. Visit Ottawa in January and enjoy skating on the longest ice rink in the world, the Rideau Canal. In June see another face of the Rideau Canal from a house-boat voyage of discovery, or go shopping in Ottawa's historic outdoor marketplace, the Byward Market.

bubiOur primary reason for existence is to cater to the whims of two dogs and three cats. To go to our pet section click on the link. When we are not feeding, petting, walking, or otherwise serving our furry masters (when they are asleep) we have time to listen to music, read, swim, surf the net, correspond with friends abroad, and pursue our other interests.

Russian FlagFor three years (1998 - 2001) we lived in Moscow, capital of the Russian Federation. Moscow, a city of 12 million, celebrated its 850th birthday in 1997, the year before we arrived. We enjoyed the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the history and culture of this fascinating city and country. To learn about our experiences in Russia, click on the link.

Palestinian FlagFor three years (2001 - 2004) we lived in Bet Hanina, a Palestinian suburb in East Jerusalem, in the Occupied West Bank. To learn about our experiences in the Middle East, click on our travel section and follow the links.

Some of our other interests are: classical and military music, national anthems, history and geography, science fiction, international affairs and development, business, travel, religion, humour, and (of course) animals - domesticated and wildlife. We also enjoy travel. To learn about some of our travel experiences other parts of the world, click on the link.
