No loud noises after 11 pm. No entertaining any guests while you are with us. Breakfast can be had at several restaurants close by.

We are Canadians living in Pittsburgh for the next three years while Tim completes a Masters of Divinity at a seminary in the city. We love entertaining and hospitality, meeting the many interesting people God sends through our lives. Tim enjoys Toastmasters. Lynette loves gardening and cooking.
Tim has worked for a federal politician in Canada. Lynette is originally from Trinidad & Tobago. We don't know whether we'll stick around Pittsburgh or move elsewhere once Tim's schooling has ended. We are enjoying our time in Pittsburgh, getting to know the city, all its many neighbourhoods and the many interesting and friendly people who cross our paths.
