    greetings on this chilly morning from the lancaster,pa area. i understand erik is in poland, so i hope all is well there with him. im sure he will be writing in soon to let us know how hes making out with himself.i went for a drive on fri in the lancaster countryside, there seemed to be alot of activity of amish folks that day. with the cill in the air and the leaves changing at a fast rate it was a perfect fall day. the more that i drive around the state of penn the more i realize how beautiful the state that i live in now is. i always knew how pretty it was, now im living here so its more personal to me. we ate at a amish style restaurant as well, im not sure if i can give them a plug on here, but the food was wonderful and the place is so clean with a friendly staff. i would recomend it if i know i could recommend it,lol. i truly wish i could travel to other amish communites like erik does, i admire that along with being alittle jealous, but i know it involves work as well, so its not a free ride………. enjoy your weekend everyone……. richard
