    Sweetheart, honey, dear, pumpkin, oh…. you meant what does an Amish girl call her boyfriend? (Sorry, just kidding, couldn’t resist it!)

    In the PA Dutch we’d often say “kal,” which would be fellow or guy in English, but in PA you often hear “chap,” or “chappie” too, as in “Mary and her chap were there.”

    Oddball question for the Amish

    Hi – as we are now in the end times of the Bible, do the Amish understand that they may become very popular if (more like *when*) the electricity goes out? I wonder about this a lot because we “English” city folk know *NOTHING* about…well, anything that is non electric, nor anything that is made by/used by hand. Would the Amish rise the occasion to help in a potentially electricity-free world?
