I don't know how they get along so good without a hand struck out waiting on Uncle Sam to fill it. How the Amish do that is beyond me

They don't need Uncle Sam. Their land and houses in most cases were paid off about 100 yrs ago. They don't have car payments and don't have to buy gas. They don't have cable bills. They don't have Verizon bills. They don't have electric bills. They don't have a Starbuck's habit. They don't buy Tommy Hilfiger clothes or any of that other crap over at the outlet stores. They don't buy their kids Air Jordans.

The Amish own some of the most beautiful and largest houses on the east side of Lancaster County. Heck, most of their garages put my house to shame.

Pennsylvania here we come!

Any recommendations of a good Amish place for breakfast in the Lancaster area?
