JEAN STARTS ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS
Another questions is: Have I sold apple bread at the farmers market sometimes? Yes I have. What are the most popular items that folks buy? The two most popular are donuts and bread. I believe we sell many donuts because we have a coffee maker and one for hot water. So we can serve coffee and tea. When people are done setting up and earlier buyers like a cup of coffee and a donut. Our next biggest seller are breads-white bread, and banana nut are the top sellers there. Apple bread sells, cranberry sells, but you have to be carefull with what kind-people won't buy something they haven't tried or never heard of. After bread comes pies and cakes.
Does anyone in our family or other Old Order Mennonite write stories, poems or songs as a hobby? The only one I know of that does any of these is Edward. He likes to write poems now and then. Although Edward lives in our home, he isn't Old Order Mennonite-yet. I am sure other Old Order Mennonite write things to, I just don't know about them.
What is my attitude about taking over the counter medication? If the doctor advises us to, we do use take it, but I feel if they are going to subscribe over the counter items, my own herbal remedies are better than items sold over the counter.Of course is depends what it is and what it is for, too.
Yes, we do have Old Order Mennonite shunning, but it is different than the Amish. We can associate with the people that are shunned, eat with them, do business with them, welcome them in our meetings (church), but they are not allowed to receive Holy Communion the twice of year that we have it.
I think I will end answering my questions here, for this week. Now I have a question. People have asked butchering poultry-do you want to know how to do it? What we make of it? Or what? Also canning-do want to know how to do it? I don't understand the questions?
Be With God,
