John Caravella, E-mail: jjrnch@sbcglobal.net.  I live on Gundersen Drive, San Jose, CA 95125-4941, with my wife, Barbara. We are the parents of Marie, Lori and JoAnn and VERY proud grandparents of Ashlynn, Cassie, Luke, Cole and another one to make its debut in July 2002. I was farming (fruit) in Vernalis, Patterson, Hollister and on Payne Avenue, San Jose until 27 years ago. When I saw the orchards being pulled out for housing developments, I got out of farming. At that time, I went into construction (part-time remodeling) and remained in that field until I retired 5 years ago. I missed my orchards immensely!! In 1989 we purchased a 600 acre cattle/hunting ranch (called the Double J)in Red Bluff, California, to keep us busy. During the first 5 years we owned the ranch, I built our cabin, garage, barn and motel (bunk house for the kids and friends), made roads, etc.. We spend 50% of our time at our ranch and love every minute of it, especially when we are with our children and their families. (May 2002)
