    I was super excited to see the article on the Amish migration! I’m from Colorado and lived in Colorado Springs for years before moving to Virginia. Twice, I saw Amish walking along the busy highway in Manitou Springs; they must have been visiting. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Thanks for the shout-out! I’m trying to figure out why my site blew up (in a nice way) and think you may have part of the answer. Appreciate it! Another post today features some gorgeous Amish horses; http://juliezickefoose.blogspot.com/2014/01/horses-corn-shocks-and-marmalade-skies.html
    The Demerara is a river in Guyana, on the northeast coast of South America, where cane is grown, and a famous rum is produced from that cane sugar. I’m assuming the name refers to the origin of the sugar. It would be brown sugar, or perhaps raw sugar, from that region. Why you’d need to use it over regular brown sugar I’m not sure. I can attest that the rum is mighty fine, smooth.
    Again, thanks for linking to my snowy owl posts. They devolved into Holmes Co. Appreciation posts. I agree: Adams Co. is incredible. Especially in autumn. Wow. I’m so glad to live in Ohio.

      Thanks, Julie, another beautiful selection of photos from Amish country! My wife has all your books and we’ve heard you give a couple of talks over the years, so was happy to see your Amish post. Stay warm!
