Hi Ken

Nice to hear from you,
It looks l Ike you have a great project on the go there, wish I was closer would be visiting the site.
I envy your older history compared to North America, which it seems is a melting pot of different nationalities who immigrated from about 1500 on
Where I reside here in Canada german influences predominated, my family immigrated in 1710 from Germany to England to New England, and then finally up into Dundas county in Ontario, we stayed loyal to thebritish crown during the war of independence because of the help we received at the previous time by the queen of England at that time.
It is great once again to hear from you, the U.K. Is fortunate to have you and you family part of their heritage movement
