  • About Isadora:

    I am a Veterinary Technologist/Pharmacologist, with 20+ years of bio-medical/pharmaceutical experience, who has switched gears - radically. Well, it's been very radical but too long to catalogue here so I'll leave it at that. Want to know, ask. My husband (TP's beerman) and I travel when we can. Mwahahaha!! The day will come when we WILL see the world!!!

  • Hobbies:

    Though not in any particular order: travel, scuba, snorkeling, gardening, cooking, writing and (of course) TP.

  • Favourite places:

    Jamaica, Antigua... Oh, let's face it - the Caribbean and wherever the next trip takes us - as long as it's warm all year long! We're not picky.
