ELMER ANSWERS QUESTIONS
Someone asked about our gas. I guess I didn't say it right. The gas we have is from our propane gas tank. The tank is in our yard. That tank was a big problem when we built the house and they installed the tank. Where they wanted to install it, was right, in the front of our house. Anna told them no way were they putting that tank there. They explained to Anna and myself about their convenience to fill it if it is in that location. Anna didn't care how convenient the filling was that tank was not going in the front of our house. I tried to tell Anna it was all right there. Anna said it was not all right there. After a couple of weeks going back and forth, they finally agreed to put the tank on the side of the house. Anna is still not happy where it is, but agrees it is a lot better than having right in front of the house.
We also use generators, too, sometimes. Generators are used for milking the cows, running the washing machine and a few other things around the farm, when necessary.
Another person asked if Amish or Old Order Mennonites do beekeeping. Some do. Neither our family or Jean's family does. Right off hand I can't think of anyone that does, but I know there are some. Will see if I can find out more information about it.
I do know this about beekeeping - there is nothing like honey fresh from the bees. It is sure a lot better tasting than the store bought honey. Oh, I just thought of someone in our church that does beekeeping. I will talk to him next Sunday at church and see if he would tell us about it. Maybe either he puts on a post or gives the information to me and I put on a post., whichever he wants.
Don't want to answer to many questions at the same time, then I won't have anything to write about again.
