86 year old working hard on his island

He is successfully reintroducing the indigenous giant tortoise to his island. And he turned down millions for the place.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/4181629.stm

Enjoyed his attitude. He doesn't have any problem talking about what he is doing. His speech and language use are great for any age. Having something useful to do seems to be great for a person.

I guess it helps that he was smart enough to buy the place when real estate was cheaper, but a couple of thousand trees was a major improvement project.

Sorted out now. Thanks for mentioning that. I hit a few interesting links this morning and must have wound up confused myself.
