First off, our Christmas Recipe list will start on December 11th instead of 12th as Susan brought it to Jean's and my attention the fact that Jean has a recipe on December 11th which is on a Wednesday.  Seeing it is a Christmas Recipe, why not start a day early?  So we did.  If it is the day a post is on, there will be a recipe at the bottom of the post so there will be a recipe a day. 

Second, a while back there was a post that Jean had on (February) about two Amish young men that had killed several puppies.  I just found out what their punishment was by the judge.  Both were given 30 days in jail.  In addition they had to pay $500.00 each and neither are allowed to own dogs for the next 15 years. 

Another interesting thing is Elmer, Anna and I drove by a house that had been on the post of the man mowing the lawn on the riding lawn mower that had the fancy wheels on it (October 25th).  Well, the house has been torn down.  There is some machinery still there and Elmer seems to think that someone is going to be building a new house there.  As it is not to far from their farms, Elmer, Anna, David, Jean, Joseph and Martha are going to keep an eye on it for me and let me know if something happens, especially if they start building a new house. The man driving the lawn mower was Mennonite, Joseph is going to see if it is a member of his meeting (church).  If so, he will see what he can find out about it, so I could take pictures.  I didn't know the house was going to be down or I could have shown Joseph the pictures of the man on my computer, but I hadn't brought my computer.  Joseph wanted me to send the pictures from my computer to his in-laws computer so he could see them there, which I did.

Elmer, Anna and I went around today looking for Amish pictures for New York State of Mind, but we didn't do well.  Everyone we went to see wasn't home.  The businesses were closed except one. that would not allow me to take pictures.  This was the first time I had been refused, but I thanked them for allowing me to see their store.  We ended up eating lunch at Elmer and Anna's.  Elmer has another area where Amish are located that he wants to take me too.  He will call their phone shanty's and see if he can make an appointment so we won't have to go through this again.

Well, I guess that is all I have for now.  If I think of something more, I will add it on.  Christmas Recipes start on Wednesday.

God Bless,
