Take a drive up there now and you will see amish living in NEW modern design homes and sporting the latest clothes as a result of the money from the ENGLISH drillers!

Amish dont have 'man caves'... I can respect the ways and views of Amish people. They do no harm, and dont press themselves onto anyone.

I wish you well...
