We live on a small five acre farm in the Mohawk Valley - just north and east of Eugene, Or. We have:

1. Four kids and fourteen grand kids - they provide the motivation and purpose for our lives,

2. Three cats, eight chickens and a dog - because what would a farm be without farm animals,

3. A barn, converted to a shop - that increasingly finds me spending time in it, and,

4. A John Deere - no explanation needed.

That probably tells you everything you need to know about me. Thanks to Martin Sojka for building a GREAT site. I know a little about this subject and this site is one of the very best I've ever seen.

Kind regards,

Ransom from the Mohawk Valley, Oregon - "CottonWire"
