The Amish I've encountered both in KY and OH all seem to have a german accent.  I can't keep straight who's allowed TV and who isn't or who can do this or that.  It's all very confusing.

One Amish fellow has a state of the art furniture making shop, some have fairly new sawmills.  But they can't have a telephone.  Kinda strange logic if you ask me, but I guess they didn't.

Like Charlie said there's quite a few Amish in southeastern MN. Despite the differences in how they go about things, they definately ain't foolish or poor. They apparently own a good portion of Fillmore County and are buying up more all the time.
There is also a Hutterite (sp?) community in Mower County. They have a manufacturing facility as modern as any I've ever seen. They produce tenderfoot flooring and grain augers among other things. Can't help but chuckle a little when you see all these guys that look like there from back in time running these huge modern pieces of equipment.
We used to sell some hog slats to the Hutterites out in SD. If you wanted to keep their business you had to leave the jug of McMasters in the culvert at the end of the driveway.  :D

I hear the amish are working on an electricity substitute involving kites, strings, butter churns, and lightning bolts. Details are sketchy, but I'm told that since lightning is provided by God, it's OK to use it. Another group is reportedly trying to utilize static electricity by means of rubbing sheep on carpets and balloons, but this may just be a rumor.

Thought ya'll might like to see my mill. Its a Timberking M-14, swinging a 46"blade. The carriage runs over the mandrel, you can just see the PTO collar past the left rail. Thats my homemade radial blower along the back wall. I'm standing at the outfeed end. Check out my headblocks compared to Ron and Jeff's :D

I saw a fellow from Nebraska today that put heat in a sawbooth kinda like you got Kevin. Yep,  He's got a Logosol and he moved it to South Georgia.  ;D
