John and Cathy's web site

This is the web site of John Garvey and Cathy Parmigiani. It is the entry site for a number of projects that we are working on. We expect it will be under permanent construction.

About us

We live in Canberra, the capital city of Australia. John's interests are fishing, miniature wargaming (ie: toy soldiers), military and pre-Columbian American history. He works as a fisheries scientist for the Commonwealth government. Cathy's interests are knitting, spinning and medical science. She works as a Cytogenetisist. We both enjoy camping and bushwalking.
