how many goats DOES it take to screw in a lightbulb?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I'm somewhat new to all of this. I've lived in rural Pa. for @ 10 years now. I've always been an avide animal person and highly interested in botony, wild edible plants, and gardening etc.. but I've never really known othere in my area to be too interested. I've come across a person here or there that enjoys one thing or another but not as a whole way of living. I'm pleased to happen across an ad for this magazine and happened to check it out and too my surprize.....
so, How many gosts Does it take to screw in a lightbulb? or to make soap?
is there a way to contact otheres in my area? I live in a large amish community, and have begun to get involved in a neighborly way. Some are extreamly open others just stare at you. With them around I can't think of better teachers. But as I said, they are kinda secret people and keep to themselves ( unless they need to use the phone).
I live in the Warren Pa. area if anyone is around me? please e-mail. I've alot of questions

Hi Sheri, my in-laws on my father-in-laws side of the family are Amish, they are in the Middlefield, OH., area. Once the local Amish realize that you are interested in a rural lifestyle, they will become quite friendly. Most of the married woman have an extremely busy homelife, unless they have many daughters of the age that can help out a lot around the house, but even so, if you show a polite interest, they will come around and be friendly and personable.
I would be happy to help you with any questions you have about the Amish, feel free to e-mail me anytime.
