A fan of the beautiful game for many years, discovered Villarreal through the CL heroics and heartbreaks. I liked the fact that they were from a small town in the Valencian Community and yet were on the world stage with Arsenal, Liverpool, Barcelona, etc. so began supporting Villarreal. I haven't made it to El Madrigal yet, but hope to one of these days!

My wife and I (and our three cats) are now living in central California, in the Sierra foothills. Apart from blogging about Villarreal, I also spend a good deal of free time cooking and playing music, and enjoying the local wines. I can't claim my paella is a true paella Valenciana, but it's getting to be pretty darn good!!
