    Kevin, I agree 900% .. this is an excellent article !!
    I am going to share it on my facebook page ..
    I love all his interconnections .. something I’ve never thought about ..
    Also it was interesting to read that the Amish are considered to be chemical friendly .. I always thought the complete opposite ..

    After reading this .. I think I’m going to have to ride over and visit my local Amish community today .. and take a peek at their backyard garden .. and have a sandwich on some of their homemade bread .. and buy some homemade cinnamon rolls …

    Thanks again Kevin for sharing this awesome and interesting article with us.

    Hello Kevin. I so enjoyed this column from Mahlon. He certainly gives us something to think about and he is right, about all the connections in nature. I also wonder about our advanced technology and what it has done to more personal interaction among family and friends. I hope we will continue to have his writings in the future beyond the trial period. Keep up the good work, Keving. It is appreciated.
