Site Stuff?

Um, okay, I just put a post up about convenience stores.....had nothing to do with anything Amish.  I try to keep the content on this site a "mix" of stuff.  But as I head out to Kansas City soon I have lots of long hours in the car to think and contemplate, so if anyone has any "site suggestions", please feel free to post. I think it's important to make periodic improvements and always strive to make this site fun, readable and, most importantly, educational.  I do want people to come away learning something about Amish/Anabaptist culture - at least as I see it.  Plus perhaps get some good recipes.  So if there's something you like, or perhaps more importantly, something you dislike or something you'd like to see more or less of, please share.

If it is tasty and good it probably is not that good for you......

Isn't it strange that our appetites haven't adapted to the change in food requirements?  Imagine if things had been reversed and we were trying to do the heavier work of yesteryear on the caloric reqirements of today..... At least it would not have been the battle of the bulge. cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes ETC

Re: Site Stuff?

Well if its in the realm of the Amish I would like to know more about the faith of the Amish, their style of worship, how these seem to be incorportated in their regular lives. In other words Not just on Sunday sort of thing. Also(not to be antagonistic)why they keep it to themselves. Why they follow the Bible except the part where Jesus says go into all the world and tell the good news. I don't mean to be disrespectful there. I admire the culture and wish I had the nerve to leave everything behind and live as they do but I want to know. Enjoy your trip to Kansas! Speaking of recipes is there anything Germanic that is healthy for you? I love the food. Much of what I know is that it is very heavy. And unless I'm building barns or working on the farm I don't need it. I'm fighting the weight, blood pressure, and Cholesterol battle (and winning).
