Diane grew up on a lake in Traverse City, Michigan where she learned to water ski, snow ski and snowmobile. In the mornings she would paddle her canoe across the lake to meet the school bus with her white lab taking his spot in the bow. John grew up on a bluff over looking the Rock River - a tributary of the Mississippi in Illinois. Both John and Diane learned to value the wonderful calming effect of a home on the water. John and Diane have three boys and live in the San Francisco bay area. More info can be seen on (website: hidden), (website: hidden) and on YouTube.
