A new post from Jean on Tuesday, with a special 2 part post from me starting on Wednesday (July 6) called "Lebanon on 2 wheels". Come with me as i tour the Lebanon county country side on a classic mint conditioned  Schwinn varsity 10 speed racer that i had bought from a bike collector years ago. Look for part 2 on Friday (July 8) with a visit to Patches family dairy with just me and my Schwinn. Also will have some classic Schwinn ads from the 1950s-1970s so don't miss this one folks.

I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
