Sam it's great to hear from you, you've been on my mind quite a lot lately. I hope you're right an there is an uprising against that evil man. Good luck with the court case.

Glad your are ok Sam - I checked a few weeks back just to make sure your web site was still up and running but didn't want to bother you with an email.

Good luck in court! If all else fails, consider this! Oregon is great wine Country, an awful lot like Scotland - there is lots of room for horses along with Polo at the Lake Oswego Hunt Club, and we would love having you for a neighbor! Besides that, I could use your help at the shop because Pete is long gone!

Now - I'll bet this will spur dozens of invites for you from this group! :-)

Great to hear from you Sam! We're crossing our fingers that you get an independent judge!

Yes, you should join us again sometime (soon).

Good to hear from you again Sam.

The papers down here are starting serious speculations about a successor to mad bob. Here's how one reporter saw the meeting between mad bob and some African leaders last week.

Luck, Sam...

Thanks for those links, Al. Not much hope, really, is there? "Mission Impossible" sums it up!

Jim - Oregon sounds VERY appealing ... "just like Scotland" eh? But without the four foot snow drifts in February, I hope

Thank God your safe Sam. I've been worried about you. I hope all goes well with your court date. Also think an uprising can't come soon enough from the sounds of things. Take care

What a great thread to come back to! We're really happy that you and your family are doing well Sam. You have a lot of guts. Best of luck in your court fight. I have a feeling you'll need a little luck on your side. Great to hear from you again.

Thanks Ed! Well, the good news is that we won!! So the farm is legally ours, although other farmers have been through several court cases, i.e. the government just starts the whole process over again, giving the owner a compulsory acquisition order, then telling them to get off, then it's back into court again. So we've been advised not to rush back just yet ...

Since we've been off the place, though, I've realised that we were actually turning into hermits! It's such a pleasure being around people again - think I could get used to city life!!

Sam

Congrats Sam!!! that's really good news finally, I'm really happy for you! I just hope you don't have to go through any more court cases before you can actually get back to your farm.
