Isn't there anything higher up than mayor? How about governor of our little farm community.

Who's going to take on the task of training the geese to be nice to us folks inside and keep outsiders out?

We are getting ready to have mac & vegan cheese with corn pasta since we are trying to give T a week break from rice. It has bulk chicken basil sausage and turkey bacon and peas with it. I was going to do carbonara but since we don't eat cheese and my daughter is not fond of the idea of slimey uncooked egg, we opted for this. Carbonara next weekend maybe when the oldest stepson and wife visit.

As long as we are far away from city lights and I can set up a big telescope, I do not need mcuh else. Maybe some attack geese to protect my telescope from the cows....

Can't sleep with those miserable city lights, we have headlights constantly driving by and we live in a small town, just on one of the main roads. Telescopes, my dad got one for us that we haven't really used (a little discovery channel one I think)...of course once the kids get older it will come in quite handy.

Okay, I'll be over in 5 minutes :lol:

OK, we'll set out a bowl for you. :P:lol:

Everyone has been saying what they would need... so got me thinking... we'd have to have the town by the Ocean... that's what I would need :rolleyes:

I love the ocean...but it's so populous by the ocean. How close would you want to be? And which ocean or does it matter?

Getting back to the Amish/Mennonite thing--there's also the Bruderhof (the brotherhood)--a group similar to Mennonites located close to Pittsburgh. They also dress very conservatively, and they seem to place high value on education and the Arts. Many of them take violin lessons (and probably other instruments), and I see them come to Symphony Concerts when we play in their area. The children are always extremely well-behaved, and the older children behave very kindly and responsibly toward the younger children.

I used to have this sort of fantasy about taking my family and staying with one of these groups for a summer to help them with their work in exchange for room and board. I like their work ethic and would love to teach my children about what hard work and self-sufficiency is really like!

Problem #1: We are Jewish, and they may dislike that.

Problem #2: The Amish would certainly not want me visiting them, at least with my violin, as singing hymns is the only music allowed (playing musical instruments is not, it's considered fancy).

Problem #3: Gluten...unless there is a celiac family we could stay with!

But just imagine the life lessons one could learn...

I very much doubt if the Amish would dislike your being Jewish, but I guess you're right about the violin. I belong to a different protestant church, not Amish or Mennonite, and I've worn a Star of David on a chain around my neck, next to my cross, for several years.

I had the same fantasy, except I wanted to go alone. Sometimes "life is too much with us," and I wanted to escape from the stress into a simpler life for a while. Don't give up your dream. Contact the Bruderhof; apparently they would appreciate your music, and might be willing to accomodate your gluten-free lifestyle. You'd be sure to find clean meat, veggies, and fruit there. :)

Are there any bodies of water inland that aren't populated that are warm enough for Celia's dolphins and close enough to shopping but far enough to have peace and quiet?

Mitch will just hae to get a boat to go with his truck thats all :D

Tony could be captain of the boat or barge and Mitch could drive everyone shopping and bring the truckloads of stuff back.

Andrea... yep... right here where I am right now :D

HA... perfect Andrea :lol:

Mitch has an addon for the peace and quiet....With a truck I'll take care of the peas. And of course if we get enough people helping out, we'd have enough to jump on a bandwagon. I can even pull the bandwagon with the truck. :lol:

:) This thread is hilarious. I grew up in Ohio near a large Amish community and also lived in PA near a lot of Amish when Zack was born. We then moved to NJ to a suburban area when my husband was working in NYC. Well, about a month after we moved from PA to NJ, we were at a shopping center and Zack, who was 8 at the time, said "Huh, now THERE'S something you don't see everyday." I asked him what he was talking about, and he said-"There was an Amish guy over there who just got into a car and drove off! Geez, they let them drive cars in New Jersey. " It was an Orthodox Jewish man!!! He HATES for me to tell that story!

Another Amish story- When my brother was little (about 3) my mom took us for a shopping trip for school clothes and an elderly Amish man was waiting in line in front of us and my brother yelled "Hey, it's Santa Claus!!" My mom was mortified and the man was not amused :blink: I really do love the Amish, though and I loved to hear the clip-clop of the horses as they rode the buggys around our area growing up. For some reason it seems comforting to me to hear that sound. (getting a little homesick....)

I love Little House on the Prairie. I know it's not Amish but the clip clop of horses hooves. I'll have to relate your stories to the family after dinner. Had to take a break before I am 2 pages behind because of eating. :lol:

I like wild seas, like off the coast of Maine. "Roll on, thou deep and dark blue ocean, roll!" George Gordon, Lord Byron? Maybe not.

Okay, we need rich farmland by the ocean, with mountains at our back to provide fresh spring water. Rachel will be President of Rachelville, and who did we elect Mayor? I'll accept the position of Minister of Defense in Control of Geese, if you'll give me time off for shopping excursions. The shopping mall will be on the other side of a mountain, through which we'll dig a tunnel for the use of our shopping trucks. We'll each have a little house, with fireplaces in each; and we'll keep booze in our houses if we so choose. Manner of dress will be as individual as we are. If anyone suggests nudity, I'll undress to buck nekkid, and so scare the h*** out of everyone that the subject will die, although in the future Grandmothers will whisper that horror story to their shuddering grandchildren as they huddle around their fireplaces.

It's way past my bedtime. I get up at 6:00 AM, and I need my sleep. Pleasant dreams to all! :)

Cissie,

You've summed everything up pretty good. :P Celia elected me Mayor, but I think she needs to be elected to some office. How about Governor since Rachel is Prez? I think I'd do better as Treasurer since I used to work in a bank. What does a mayor do anyway? Who wants to be Mayor and who wants to be co-Treasurer with me. Julie, Patti, Evie, Donna? How about Vincent or Picard for Mayor or Lt. Governor. Susan do want to be Secretary or something else. Maybe Donna should be our shopping consultant. Patti and Susan can be responsible for planning and organizing the farm to make it beautiful and functional. Anyone else have decorating/landscaping ablilites that's not tied to an office yet. Rachel'd be another one but she already has a function within the community. Mitch is driver, Tony is captain. Any other spouses want to jump in?
