My good friend Daniel is moving on- he took a new job and the commute (I think it's fair to say) is killing him.

He and his family moved to this 1.6 acre parcel about 8 years ago, and he's got a lot of nice things started- fruit trees, garden beds, hazel and willow coppicing rows, a chicken coop and yard, and more.

He's got tons of photos here:

and you can reach him directly at tech.samaritan [at]

If he sets up a web page or MLS listing, I'll come add the link here.

Or just reply here if you want more details or pictures.

I am also moving closer to Mike and right next to my brother and family (and his cow, hogs, and chickens).

It'll be the Shackelford Acres.

But, the current place has been 7 years in the making and it is sad to leave. The apple trees are just starting to really get going (Crispen, Jonathan, Ashmead's Kernel, Mother, and Cox's Orange Pippin), the filberts are finally filling out, and the blackberries are having their first good year.
Think of how stupid the average person is. And how half of them are stupider than that. - Carlin But who reads this tiny ad?
