I am Newfie, by birth, but Brazilian by heart. I grew up in Brazil and lived there for 23 years. My sister, Donna Haug, is very well known on this site. My other sister, Lynette Beens, is not so well known though she has written 4 articles. I have 2 brothers as well. I have just started writing myself as a pass time. I work as a bankruptcy co-ordinator in Toronto, ON, Canada. I got married in July 2005 to my best friend.
