Martha called me this morning and told me how much she liked Richard's post today and said she would come to New York State of Mind, if I wanted her, too. I more than welcomed her. Martha is also Old Order Mennonite as is Jean, but Martha was not always. She was an Englisher, like we are, and coverted to Old Order Mennonite. She, her husband and children also own a Dairy Farm in Finger Lakes area of New York State. Jean, Martha and their families are very close friends. So if you have any questions for Martha, please leave them in comments. Martha will not be on weekly as Jean is, but her posts will come as she has questions to answer, or as she said, she has something to say.
Also coming is Sara, the Old Order Mennonite who is a Foster Parent as are Martha and Jean. If anyone has questions for her, she would be glad to do another post or two. She will not be on weely as Jean, but as she gets questions, will be glad to answer them. Sara gets the most difficult or special foster children. As with Martha and Jean, many of her Foster Children are adopted and become members of their family-for ever - as the children say.
So if you have any questions for Jean, Martha or Sara, please leave them in your comments. It gives them subjects on which to post. Sometimes, Jean especially, wonders what to do a post about. She doesn't know what you would be interested in.

Recipes start December 12th, so keep posted. A new recipe every day including Christmas Eve.
