    Week-end odds and ends

    The recumbent bike is really good for your back. We have one at our house. It’s a stationary version. Greetings from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂

    Living with the Amish - Channel 4

    This is a wonderful programme which has attracted a lot of positive media attention here in the UK.The Amish couple in the first programme Jonathan and Marietta were so kind and patient with the young people and that was what got me hooked on the series. The simplicty and disciplined way of life grounded in strong religious faith is truly inspiring. Three programmes have been broadcast so far and each week the Amish families have been unfailingly patient and considerate with the young visitors and each week my friend phones me and tells me she wants to live with the Amish.

    "Amish" murder mysteries

    An Ohio author P.L.Gaus has written several murder mysteries based in the Holmes Co. area with Amish characters. I’ve read several of them and find that his style does not particularly appeal to me.

    "Sworn to Silence"

    I picked up “Sworn to Silence” thinking it would be another inspirational Amish book. Was I ever wrong! Some of the descriptions are horribly graphic, and situations so frightening, I was looking over my shoulder for weeks. I jokingly told our librarian the book should come with a warning label. If you like thrillers, this is it. I would not watch a movie based on this; some of it is pretty horrible.
