    Kevan, it is strange that I spoke with the restaurant just last week. I was told that the Bed and Breakfast no longer exist. I have eaten at the restaurant before and the food was very good and they gave you plenty. Of course they told me that the restaurant was still open. I live in Georgia and I have been told that the Amish don’t settle in Georgia because the land is too expensive.
    About a year ago I was on a mission to find out why I had heard of several sightings of Amish about 20 miles from my home. I talked to the police in that town, the chiropractor, the grocery store where they had been seen and the herb shop. The lady in the herb shop answered my question.
    There is a holistic teacher in that town and they come from Pennsylvania to try to get their cancer and other chronic conditions healed. She said that there is a school there (strange that I live so close and had never heard of it) that teaches holistic healing. She said that she had previously seen many of them coming into that town, but hadn’t seen any lately.
    About the cotton: I grew up working in the cotton field. I have helped plant, chop, hoe and pick cotton. The picture that you put in the post is cotton fully open waiting to be picked. In full bloom, it actually has flowers on it (yellow or mauve) and it can have 2 different color blooms on the same stalk. It then has what is called squares. Then it has boles and as it gets fall the leaves fall off and the boles open and you can pick the cotton. I’m sure I gave you more info than you wanted, but it is really interesting if you didn’t grow up around it or don’t know about it. Keep up the good work.
