My name is Diana Miskell, currently living in Cloverdale, British Columbia, Canada. My husband and myself are beginning the paperwork to move to CR as pensionados. We've been following Andy and Fran's webpage for quite a while, in addition to several others. We're members of ARCR.

We're hoping we'll be there in 2011. We would like to contact other Canadians who are going through/have already gone through the pensionado procedures - we have lots of questions.

I'm a painter - specializing in portraits of cattle and horses, specifically racehorses.
