NEW YORK STATE OF MIND - THIRD BIRTHDAY !!!
For those that are new, I will give a brief explanation on how New York State of Mind came about. On the computer I found Amish Stories owned by Richard. He was looking for someone Amish or Old Order Mennonite to give posts on his blog. I asked Jean and after discussing it with her husband David and her Bishop she came on to Amish Stories. What was suppose to be occasionally, turned into weekly. After a while, Richard had changes in his life which led him to making changes on his blog. Jean said she would only post on a blog of Richard's or mine. Now, I knew nothing about blogs. So three years, ago, Richard gave me an e-mail to go to and there was New York State of Mind, he had made this for me. I have had to e-mail Richard for a lot of help over the years, which I thank him for, Richard's blog is www.PureCountryLiving,com I am still learning different things on here.
I thank Richard, for all he has done for me. Also, Jean, Grandmother Olive, Elmer, Anna, Martha, and all that have given me the posts to put on here. I thank all of you that have given me pictures and posts to put on here. Most of all I thank you all that come, read the posts - some leave messages, some don't. You all are appreciated,
Thank you all for all you have done for me. Really thank you for all the gifts you gave me on paying the garage on my car repairs, I have only two more payments to go to the garage and they will be paid off !! Five more payments and my loan my friends gave me for the car will be paid off !! Also, want to thank you for your thoughts, prayers and advice on my brother's passing. You don't know how much you mean to me,
On here, we have been through the good times and the not so good times. In addition to Jean, Elmer, Anna, Grandmother Olive and more, I try to put things on what I think will interest you. Sometimes I have put on things, I think you will really like and I don't get many people. Again, sometimes I put on something that, I think, might not be as good as others and I get a lot of messages. So I never know how a post will go until it's on.
Just some information. Our total number of pageviews since we have been on is 1,231,414, There are 58 members, but lots more people respond here than are members. The top two most popular posts of all time were Palmyra, NY Famous Four Churches (January 12, 2014) and Gorham Fire Department (May 10, 2013).
So we are ending our 3rd year and tomorrow we start our 4th year. I hope you have enjoyed New York State of Mind. I feel you are more family than friends. Again, thank you for all you have done.
Blessings to you all,
Jean's recipe will be on tomorrow.
