    Keep up the good work. I’ve enjoyed it, found it informative and have passed on some of the information to my Amish friends. They just shook their heads an chuckled about their brethren milking camels. If you ever come to Vernon county, Wisconsin look me up. I have places to show you and people to introduce you to. Have a great new year!

    Enrichment and Fulfillment

    I believe that enrichment would be an understatement as to what you have done for me these past 6 years of ins and outs of the Amish Culture. In a word it’s been Collegiate!;)

        Couldn’t imagine not sticking around. It’s as fun as traveling the globe meeting different cultures. And a lot less expensive. 😉 Thanks

    Thanks, Erik...

    Thanks Erik for putting in another year of sharing the Amish with the greater world out here. It’s been a joy to be a part, whether in contributing or in enjoying others’ contributions and insights.

        Just let me know. BTW, I hope to make at least a couple of new visits in the coming months. Speaking of…, have you found out what the second Amish community in AR is? — gotta stay current and check out the settlements in my home state. 😉 Also, do you know if there was a new Directory of the Central Plains area (which covers AR) in 2017? The one I have was published in 2012, and I’m under the impression that they try to update approx. every 5 years.

        • Hi Don, great, so we’ll be in touch on that. I am not sure on the AR questions – though we should expect a new JAPAS community survey listing later this year, which will shed some light on this. Just not sure if it would be in the Spring or Autumn edition, obviously am hoping it to be the former.

    The review of 2017 with the best for 2018

    So appreciate your informative information Erik with the Amish culture……I have always enjoyed the wonderful authors that portray the Amish in their books and the occasional interaction with the Amish community here in Michigan. However, sadly just recently we have had a couple of very serious buggy accidents with deaths that has been so very heartbreaking Once again, thank you for all you do and the very best of wishes for 2018!

    Comment on Many Thanks (January 1st, 2018 at 11:52)

    Many Thanks

    Have enjoyed every year that I have followed this website. Really mean that. Will share with you, though, that way back, I wondered how you could do a daily post…I mean, eventually you were going to exhaust all the subjects, all the material, I thought. 🙂 Glad to say I WAS WRONG! Guess I wasn’t thinking of all the current situations that would come along. In fact, yours is my favorite site since I found it. Current, relevant, informative, often humorous, just “plain” fun (pardon the pun 🙂 )

    Thanks for all you do.

    • Loretta, you’re too kind 🙂 I am glad it’s been helpful, and yes it helps for topics that the Amish are a living and thriving group of people.

      I hope to keep it up for a good while yet. Thanks again, I appreciate you!

    Happy anniversary

    As a recent subscriber I enjoy reading about simple good old fashioned rewarding hard work and dedication to amish morays and cultural traditions that stand the test of time. This website allows others a peek into a value structure that inspires civility.
