Amish Deli; Horse on the loose...

There is just not much occuring in "Amish Country" this month.  While it makes putting this section together challenging, it's kind of nice to have some quiet after a year of hearing about Amish-run puppy mills, custody cases run amok, and a slew of buggy-car crashes.

This story is probably only of interest to anyone who lives or travels to "The Space Coast" area of Florida (one of my favorite parts of the state).  "Amish Market & Deli" has opened near Melbourne.  You always have to go in to these types of stores with a skeptical eye, because so many "Amish made" goods have very tenuous connections to the community, if any.  That said, I'll give this place the benefit of the doubt. Sounds like a decent store to get some Amish-made goodies in an area where these typically wouldn't be available.  If anyone has a chance to check out the store, let us know what it's like.

Also, a horse galloped into the path of an oncoming car in Manheim Township, PA, putting a woman in critical condition and killing the horse.  Now, the article says nowhere about there being an Amish connection, but it's a pretty fair bet.  The last name of Zook is a very common Amish last name in SE Pennsylvania. Horses running loose can be very scary if you are near one.  I was hiking in the woods last spring when all of the sudden I heard shouting.  Apparently someone's horse got loose and it was running rough-shod through the forest.  I could hear the horse, I could hear cracking and crashing branches very close, but I couldn't see exactly where it was.....I almost scrambled up a nearby tree, but luckily the owners were able to somehow corral it.
