Amish: look at the second paragraph under Population and Distribution:

There are Old Order communities in 21 states; Ohio has the largest population (55,000), followed by Pennsylvania (39,000) and Indiana (37,000). The largest Amish settlements are in Holmes County, Ohio, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and LaGrange, Indiana.

Not all people who are Pennsylvania Dutch are Amish.

Having grown up in Pennsylvania, I did learn that there is a difference.

Sadly, many of these communities are dying because the children are choosing to integrate themselves into modern society rather than keeping the old ways alive.

When an Amish family has 10 or 12 children and 3 or so (usually boys) leave the group the Amish population grows bigger. There are several spin off groups of the Amish called Mennonites. The Pennsylvania Dutch people literally own most of the real estate, small businesses, and the banks in Lancaster, and some of the surrounding Counties in central Pennsylvania, so don't worry about them disappearing, in fact their number grow every years. When your bank president drives a black car, has a shaggy beard, and wears a straw hat you know he is not Amish, but his grandfather was, and all of those many hundreds of thousands of people call themselves Pennsylvania Dutch, so you see those 39,000 people are just the tip of the iceburg.

If MagicSanta was Amish he would be 180 lbs, smell like a goat, and be bored to death.

What's all this talk of Pennsylvania Deitsch bags?
My grandmother was famous for defending, "We're Pennsylvania Dutch, not German!"
In her mind, being of German descent after WWI & II was all it took to set things right in Northern Michigan.

She also proved that being fat did not shorten ones life; which more than likely had to do with genes, foods we eat, and stress. She was a health food nut who was about 100 pounds over weight and she lived to the age of 94.
POOF!

Have you noticed that the majority of violent criminals are not fat?
Maybe there would be less crime if everyone was overweight.

Justin, if a "SLOB" saved your life or more importantly the life of your child or some other Loved one, would that person still be a "SLOB" in your opinion?
I think it is people with your mindset that is a great part of our problems the World over.
I do Thank You for your candid statement because maybe this will make a few of us think things through before we do exactly what Jesus taught us not to do and that is not to judge other's unless you are damm well sure that you are sinless and perfect in every way.

In all fairness Iven, not so many folks have learned that lesson. But it's nice to be reminded of the message every now and then.

Question.

Why is there no liquor stores allowed next to schools? What's the problem? Kids are not old enough to go in, so why all the fuss? Is it because if a liquor store is next to a school, there'd be No business???

So they say, Hey, let's put a candy store!!! This way we can load the little Fat A** up with at least 150 grams of sugar before they hit their first class! Then the kid goes to class, all hoped up, bouncing off the walls, teacher can't deal with it so they send the kid to the nurse. The nurse says the kid is hyper and needs to be put on Ritalin???!!! See what I'm saying?






The reason is a liquor store would cause a lot of parents to be drunk when they pick there kids up...not saying that a liquor store would be bad. You could drop the kids over, head over get a case of beer and you are set for the day lol!!!

I like to judge. I enjoy judging. In the privacy of my own home of course.

I would accept a slob saving my life and I would surely do EVERYTHING I can to save a slob. I say this with love. I love you like a brother and would put my life on the line to defend yours. As a matter of fact, I DID. I am a U.S. Navy vet, I served my country so slobs, and everyone else, can have the freedom and right to live and eat and be as healthy or UNhealthy as they like. So please don't take it personally. I am NOT calling you a slob, but on the same thought, if you are a slob and my comments have you outraged or upset in any way, then take a look in the mirror and answer the question your self. If what I said makes you (or anyone) think more about your health, then I think that is a good thing. I think even Jesus would be happy. (you brought him up, not me.)

Bottom line, I will help anyone who needs/wants my help. I will give it to you straight and not fill your head with false hope or B.S. stories.


I really do love ya. And you can always count on me for any tips or health advice. I will help motivate you or help you learn how to read labels. Why is it that when you walk down the street, you will be on the lookout for muggers or robbers. But when in a food store, don't read the ingredients on the package...Where the real criminal is hiding?


Get Healthy NOW.
Get Fit.
Live to be 150 yrs. old.
When you die, you'll be the Healthiest one in the grave!

So you are a Navy vet, I hope it was our Navy. I was an ET-3, and hated every minute of it, except for France, Italy, Spain, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Kong Kong, Saigon, and the Phillipines for the obvious reasons.

I think it best I don't share my Naval experiences...

It has always been obvious obesity is contagious - who needs a study? - just look at all the big boned magicians.

And my paternal Grandmother - the biggest fattest nastiest old witch that ever breathed Australian air - was still peering through her cataracts to round up and milk cattle at dawn in her nineties.

It doesn't matter how fat or blind you are - spite will keep you alive.

Were you Aussie Navy? Here is how the fighting broke down:

USN vs French Navy
USN vs British Navy
USN and Brits vs French
USN and Aussies vs anyone
USN and Brits and Aussies vs French and Germans and Dutch.
USN and Dutch vs French and Germans
USN vs all other Navies and USMC

Man I loved a good fight. We actually left a port in Africa because we were in port with that hospital ship from the UK after the Fauklands, no one was fat by the way, and there was one French can so we were fighting the French and the Brits wanted to fight everyone cuz they were cocky. It got real bloody but we then found out that the rest of the Brit fleet was going to hit port and a ten ship French fleet and we were the only US ship. Because the French sold weapons to Argentina and we backed the Brit play our Admiral decided it would be better if we just left them to destroy each other. Man that must have been a blast. Prince Andrew was on the hospital ship so if anyone knows him ask him about the fights, I'm sure he heard about it.
