Thanks but "been there done that".  One of the spokes in the wheel I'm 
apparently re-designing, if not re-inventing.

Tanis:

I noticed your posting on cold hardy pear varieties.  You may have long ago
since done this, but have you contacted Bill MacKentley at St. Lawrence
Nurseries to get his feedback?   If you have, terrific.  If you haven't, he
would be one person I'd definitely contact.  His list of pears hardy to Zone
3 (and colder in some instances) can be found here:

I hope this is of some help.

John
