The Amish Cook from Oasis Newsfeatures

Updated: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..(Conan Video)

Anyone in western Ohio or eastern Indiana might want to check out the strawberry festival in Troy.  The festival will be held this weekend.  Rachel and I enjoy this event, it's a great place to get anything with strawberries: donuts,shortcake, muffins, pie, ice cream, and the list goes on.  Also great crafts and entertainment.  Maybe I'll see you there (or maybe I won't, our strawberries are beginning to ripen in our backyard, so maybe Rachel and I can have our own mini-strawberry festival).

I saw this kind posting about our book, The Amish Cook at Home, on a Michigan woman's blog.    Always fun to see someone enjoying our books.  I actually think our baking book will do even better when it is released this fall.  Baking has more of a focus whereas the Amish Cook at Home was kind of a catch-all, general book.

Did anyone see Conan O'Brien's debut as Tonight Show host last night?  He had a little skit that featured a brief Amish theme....I missed it.....if anyone saw it, let us know what you thought.  I tuned in too late and missed it.  I'm a Leno fan, I just don't get Conan's humor most of the time....Update:  Jessica sent me this link from Conan, check it out here. The Amish clip is about 90 secs in,  the skit was actually  kind of amusing, I thought...

Prayers to the families who lost loved ones on the Air France disaster over the Atlantic.  I know flying is safer statistically than driving or horses-and-buggies, but if something goes wrong, there is precious little room for error.

Dang!  Right after I watched, YouTube started pulling the videos.  Copyright© Infrigement™.

I am glad he is still good ol' Conan.  I love him.  And I am so glad he is still doing the "string dance."  That is like his calling card.

He did it real quick though.  My husband and I were disappointed.  Always look forward to that.

Re: Updated: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..(Conan Video)

Yes, it just isn't Conan without the string dance.  I was afraid the new format could potentially be lame-O, but he is still awesome!  I liked when he bought all those people stuff from the 99 cent store!!  LOL

Re: Updated: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..(Conan Video)

Did you know that Conan got married here in Seattle to a Seattle girl?  That was a pretty cool intro, running across the country like that - My Hubby will get a kick out of it too, 

Re: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..

Yeah, I watched the opening. Like eggcetra said, he just ran past an Amish buggy. It was a pretty funny opening, especially at the end of the skit where he had left the keys to his new CA studio door in NY.  Laughing

You don't mind that she scanned the book to put up pictures?  I thought that infringed on copyright stuff? She copied the column into the blog post too?  I think the post looks nice, I guess I just try to follow the rules. 

Re: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..

Oh now, KJunebug.....SIGH....you are a stickler for the rules aren't ya?  Well...you are right, technically, she has probably violated the copyright.  I'll have my attorneys send her a letterSmile.  Just kidding.  You know, if people are enjoying the book and they post a photo or a recipe, I'm all for that...cut, copy, and paste away...so KJune, you have my permission to go ahead and do so.....The whole Millie Otto "rip off the Amish Cook in all but name" incident, now THAT ruffles my feathers....but this blogger's post was friendly/flattering...

Re: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..

Thanks! She did do a nice post, and I like all that cottage type stuff she has and lots of links to other "homey" type blogs, you are right I do follow to many "rules".  Probably comes from when I was a child, if I did anything outside the rules, I would get caught!

Kevin, it's at about the 1:38 mark.  He runs past a buggy.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liSv5T9vCaI

Re: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..

Lucky you! My berries are only at the blossom stage..I am jealous. The lady's blog was nice, she did a nice job with the photos from the book. Nice publicity,eh? Soon you'll be "famous", but I think you deserve it!!Wink

Re: Strawberry Stuff, Etc..

I just realized that I overused the word "nice". Sorry, but I was sincere with my comment!!Undecided
