Scooter bikes can't go too far away from home.
Amish in Lancaster Co, PA In April, 2008, Beth and I weekended at a bed and breakfast in Lancaster Co, PA and toured some of the beautiful Amish farm country. We found much to respect as we learned about Amish values and customs. Mostly they are like you and me; they shop at Walmart, take vacations (by public transport since they don't drive cars), and have prosperous businesses of many types. But they dres to assure humbleness and blending with one another and dispense with cars and electricity that may tempt them away from God and family. They pay taxes but do not share in Medicare, Social Security or public education. They care for each other in hard times. Children (and teachers!) go only through 8th grade. Lancaster is mostly LARGE dairy farms. The Amish do use engine-driven equipment and air or hydraulic-driven power tools as a means to stay competitive and survive in a modern world. But horses still draw their plows and manure fertilizes their fields.Oh, and women mow the grass with push mowers!
