I have a massive amount of empathy for people who make mistakes. But, holy cow, enough. And 83-year-old woman in rural Missouri rammed into a buggy the other day. None of the teenage occupants were seriously injured, but this comes months after the same woman rammed into another buggy and that accident killed an Amish woman and her unborn baby. I don't think anyone is saying this woman is doing this on purpose but, yeah,I think, and I don't say this lightly, she probably should have her driving privileges revoked.
83-YEAR-OLD RAMS BUGGY FOR A SECOND TIME: I mean, geez, sounds like it was broad daylight on a straight stretch of road. Not good. Click here to read the article.
YODER'S AMISH RESTAURANT SHARES THEIR KEY LIME PIE RECIPE: This is an amazing pie...I've had it before. Now, would I take this over more traditional Amish pies like peanut butter? Hmmm, it's a close call, but I'd probably pick the peanut butter. Click here for Yoder's Key Lime Pie recipe.
SARA MILLER'S AMISH CORNER: Honestly, out of all the Amish writing out there, Sara Miller's Amish Corner is about the most authentic. I love it, you can tell she is writing just for her Amish audience. If others read it, so be it. But she knows who her audience is. She never reveals a ton of information about herself. I was finally able to glean from this column that she is a school teacher in one of the Amish schools there. Click here to read Sara's column this month.
MILLIE'S CRITTER CRUNCH - Millie Otto writes a weekly column from Illinois, her writing reflects a much less insulated Amish life. No less traditional, but definitely not as isolated and insulated as even Sara Miller's community. Click here to check in with Millie and get a recipe for homemade "Critter Crunch." Click here.
For newbies here, Hutterites are the often overlooked "third branch" of Anabaptists...Amish and Mennonites are the most well-known, but they are closely related to the Plain-dressing Hutterites who live in c0lonies mainly in the Dakotas, Montana, and Canada.
HALF OF MONTANA'S RURAL BLOOD SUPPLY IS HUTTERITE: The Hutterites are very civic-minded, showing up in droves for blood drives. Click here to read this interesting article.
GLACIER PARK LODGE'S HUTTERITE CUISINE: Man,this sounds like an awesome place with some awesome food. I have been to Glacier before...it's not far from the Amish community at Rexford, but I did not stay at the lodge. Click here to read more.
