Thanks, Kathy! I know WWOOF, we've hosted lots of WWOOFERS over the 
years. What I'm looking for is "WWOOF List," as our applicants for 
WOOFING at our farm are coming fewer and fewer inbetween and always 
from folks who are using outdated WWOOF books. Which tells me that we 
probably aren't on a 'list' any longer, and yet we seem to be on 
every list that we know of. So..HELP!!

Thanks, though! -Allan
