I am sure the Amish nearest us use gas heaters. I saw it in use, it looked like gas heater, and it did not smell like kerosene in the house. We used to use Kerosene and it bothers me a lot.

It is so nervy for people to use the Amish name to make money. Even the restaurants get on my nerves. People believe these are Amish businesses!! People will ask me if I have been down to eat in Milroy. I explain that those places are not run by Amish people, so they are not really Amish and they look at me really odd. Maybe they think it is just Amish food, but without the Amish people it is just part of the picture. It used to be done to the Quakers, as well, since they were a name that would be trusted ( at one time). But at least the oats were a good thing. I still do not agree with it. At the very least it is in bad taste. Who cares about good taste or bad anymore?? Truly, I grieve about this - we are being deluged by tacky thinkers.
