==About me==
 
  
Hi, my name is Tom Holland and I live in [[Oklahoma City]], [[Oklahoma]] and also have a home in [[Fort Smith]], [[Arkansas]]. I was born, raised and have lived in or near the [[Ozarks]] all my life. Computer  consulting in Application Deployment has taken me to several different areas in the past few years including [[Freeport (Maine)|Freeport]] and [[Portland (Maine)|Portland]], [[Maine]] for six months. [[Montpelier]], [[Vermont]] for six months, a year in [[Richmond (Virginia)|Richmond]], [[Virginia]], a few weeks in the [[St. Petersburg (Florida)|St. Petersburg]] - [[Clearwater]], [[Florida]] area, a few weeks in [[Kansas City (Missouri)|Kansas City]], [[Missouri]], [[Oklahoma City]], [[Oklahoma]] and last in [[Bend]], [[Oregon]] for a few weeks before taking a perm job in [[Oklahoma City]].
 
  
I started working on the Wiki in early December 2005 and my first project where I have done some work is [[Montpelier]], [[Vermont]]. It was just a stub with a couple on entries when I started. Also working on [[Vermont]] in general. I just love Northern New England, the area, the people, the culture and the politics. Have also done some work in the [[Ozarks]] area, including [[Missouri]], [[Arkansas]] and [[Oklahoma]]. Of course I have done some good work on [[Fort Smith]], [[Arkansas]] where I live and [[Poteau]], [[Oklahoma]] where I lived for a long time. You can see my contributions here [http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&target=Xltel].
 
  
You will find I am not the best at grammar and spelling. I am also just learning formatting. So, please feel free to edit any of my junk and delete anything that is not up to snuff for guidelines. I hope what I do adds to the project.
