If you have a place I can stay I will gladly move :)

The question then becomes should I bring the wife.:)

we are transplants although i was born in the USA.  Irish, English and a little French.  mixed languages, accents, and confusing family dinners :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I was born in England.
But my dads mothers maiden name was McGillick. I'm Polish, Irish, English, German, and French. I'm sorry about bending your thread but I just cant help myself......On my mothers side, I'm related to George Washingtons wife, Martha...I think Marthas mothers name was Custus....Also, on the same side of the family I'm related to Wild Bill Hickok. On my dads side of the family things got lost for awhile. My dads dad went into the army under the assumed name Hansen, as he was running from the law, but we dont know why. When he got out of the Army he took back his real name, Michonski. I found out a few years ago that my last name means,"Michael the Landowner". I also found out that the book,"Poland" by Michener was based on my relatives from Poland. Its a fiction book but Michener interviewed  a Michonski family to create the story. I never read the book though....Its about 4 inches thick with little words,
and when I started to read it it was kinda "Dry".
So there ya go......
If you want me to be Irish, Greywolf, I will!       :)

your friend,
john

 No Greywolf, you started the post perfectly clear. I'm sorry for butting in like that, but I tend to be simple minded most the time and get in the way of original subject matter.
 I'm going to find you a beekeeper in Ireland now....It might take me awhile but I'll give it a shot!

your friend,
john
