It's good to see people taking positive steps.
I'm George we live in TN. Born and raised in Ann arbor MI. Have been working as a Firefighter/Paramedic for many years now. My wife and I run Middle Tennessee martial arts and sciences for the last 3 years.
In the last 8 years or so We have been concentrating on alternative education in natural health modalities.
Would love to visit the Shire! Sounds like a fascinating concept reborn.
