Cittasantao, No problem. Will pass on any information that comes to my attention.

Just looked up the proposed site on MapQuest: The proposed Monestary will be in Temple, NH. (Temple, NH is roughly 52 miles south-west of where we live in Concord, NH.).

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

He is. I've had to the pleasure of spending some time with him while he's been staying at the Pacific Hermitage. He's extremely kind, intelligent, and has a wonderful sense of humour. Quite inspiring.
