The Amish Cook
By Gloria Yoder
Last weekend we had the opportunity to host my husband Daniel’s parents and siblings from Danville, Ohio. We always enjoy spending time together but this was an extra treat since we had not seen them for quite some time. While they were here Daniel’s brother John, who also lives in this community, discovered they have corn that is ready to be harvested. So we rolled up our sleeves and worked together. Many hands certainly made the work light. Before long the task was completed with over 40 quarts of corn in the freezer. Our two year-old daughter Julia loved all the action. Playing with her little cousins is always a highlight for her. All too soon it was time for everyone to go back home again. Thankfully, we are blessed with good memories that are tucked away in safe keeping. And speaking of memories, perhaps it would be interesting for you to join me in looking back over the past years to take a peek at Daniel’s and my life during our growing up years? On Aug. 28, 1988, Lydia Yoder beamed down at her newborn son. What a miracle and a gift from God! Daniel’s mother proved to have an exceptional mother’s heart
lled with love and dedication.
It was soon obvious that he would have his daddy’s curls, with Daniel’s being a bit lighter – a golden brown. His parents, Ephraim and Lydia, diligently taught their children the ways of the Lord and were an example of prayer and dedication to God. With six brothers and one sister, life on a dairy farm didn’t get boring. At seven years old Daniel was responsible to help with his part of milking cows by hand. Eventually the farm was replaced with a pallet shop. He and the Yoder brothers pitched in once, more determined to help Dad make a go of the business. They put their heart in it working swiftly and steadily. Tobias, Daniel’s oldest brother, owned a landscaping business. After his younger brothers were old enough to replace him at the pallet shop he had the opportunity of helping Tobias with building retaining walls, patios, and other landscaping. That was something he always enjoyed doing. Meanwhile, 50 miles away, and a little over a year after Daniel’s birth, David and Dorcas Raber had a newborn daughter. Baby Gloria was born on Nov. 12, 1989. Our parents also did an outstanding job in caring for their children and teaching us about God and His Word. Javin, my big brother and hero, was almost a year older than me. Even though he was a boy and I a girl we spent hours together playing. I became more involved in playing outside with him, and he even joined me in playing with dolls! Catching minnows and wading at a nearby creek was one of our favorite activities. At 6 years old I enjoyed the adventure of moving to Flat Rock, Ill. I knew all would be well as long as my parents and three brothers were with me. Upon arriving at our new home, items were unloaded including a cage with our beloved pet. I can’t even remember now whether it was a dog or a cat. Back then it certainly was very important to us. The cage door was opened and it slipped out and dashed for the nearby woods. Javin and I were devastated, convinced it was gone for good. Dad tried to reassure us, telling us that it’ll come back. Of course what he said was true. Aren’t dads always right? The rest of my growing up years were spent here in Illinois while Daniel’s family lived in Ohio. The question keeps coming up: so where did you meet each other? Good question, how about saving that answer for next week? This week I’ll include an old standby recipe that my mother used quite a bit during my years at home. When we didn’t know what else to make we could always settle on “Stuff.” Even though it is not listed, imagination is perhaps the number one ingredient in this recipe. Add or omit vegetables according to your taste. Sour cream or a soup may be used to replace gravy if desired. Vegetables may be sliced or diced. We usually make this with venison but you can use any of kind of meat you wish.
Brown 1-1/2 pounds of hamburger, sausage or venisonPotatoesCabbageCarrotsPeasOnionsCheese and or gravy In a large skillet brown the hamburger. Layer raw veggies on top of meat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread gravy or cheese over the top. Cover and simmer on low until veggies are tender.

Dreamers see dramatically different future
By Byron McNuttDHI Media
Every phase of your life could be subject to change in just the next 10 years as innovators tinker with the status quo...regardless of the consequences those changes might have on our lives. In decades past, revolutionary
changes may have taken ve
years to take hold.Today, dramatic changes can sweep the country, the world, in a matter of months. Traditional ways of doing things can be turned upside down almost over night. This can be very disturbing and it makes many people uncomfortable. Some of the breakthroughs are life changing and totally disrupt lives. Well, visionaries say we haven’t seen anything, yet! In the immediate future, everything is about to change again and again. Many people can’t afford to keep up. The Wall Street Journal marked its 125th anniversary July 8 with a special section.They asked leading thinkers, innovators and artists to share their visions of wherethe world is headed. Innovation is not slowing down, in fact, it’s racing ahead. No industry can afford to sit still. If you are sitting still, taking a breather, you are falling behind and will soon be relegated to a scrap heap, a museum or made irrelevant by the latest new technology. The stampede to the future has little concern for the consequences. The innovators just want to get to the future
rst, then clean up the carnage
later. In many areas, this rush to change the world is irresponsible. Tens of thousands of engineers at Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook are dreaming of ways to change the way we live and communicate. A great revolution is on the horizon they predict. Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive of Facebook, says the Internet is still in its infancy. Only one-third of the world is currently connected. That 2.7 billion number will grow to over 5 billion. There will be a global sense of community. Your friends and family will include people living around the world. This will lead to a whole new sharing dynamic. Think back to how the world changed when the world was introduced to the miracles of the printing press, radio, television, mobile phones and the Internet. If you think drone technologies are in the distant future, think again. Same for 3-D printing technologies. We may associate drones with the military but it is already an open platform for dozens of other applications. These new products will soon be everywhere. Yes, there are legal and safety hurdles in the way but they will be addressed. Think what this will do to millions of middle class workers in doomed industries? James Gorman, chairman of Morgan Stanley, predicts that the number of bank branches will decline from 97,000 now to about 10,000 in the future as a result of mobile devices. For banks, the bricks and mortar we are accustom to will become obsolete. Big banks will get bigger. The concept of cash will be relegated to museums. Transactions will all be done on hand-held devices. Can we trust this technology? Or, is it no different than using credit/debit cards? There will be more online savings vehicles, crowdfunding and loan syndicating by insurance companies, pensions and hedge funds, Gorman said. Despite having powerful safety devices on electronic devices, determined cybercriminals will steal so much they will force nations to establish deposit-insurance-like entities to cover the massive thefts. As we’ve already seen, personal privacy is already a thing of the past, says Richard Clarke, a senior adviser to three recent presidents. Cybersecurity will be a major issue for all of us. In just 20 years, most people won’t be able to remember a time when they had privacy. Wearable sensors will allow government agencies and corporate giants to know your every move, every transaction you make. Huge data centers will collect and store data about your health, location, movement, political
views, buying habits, nances,
relationships and security risks. You won’t be able to avoid Big Brother. As the way we live changes, creating jobs will be a great economic challenge, admits Larry Summers, Harvard professor and former U.S. Treasury secretary. Tens of millions of workers will be
forced to nd employment in
other sectors. Back in simpler days, one in 30 men between 25 and 54
could not nd work. Today, that
ratio is 1 in 6 men, Summers says. Software is eating the world’s labor force. As technology and robots flourish, tens of millions of workers will be displaced. They will either be long-term unemployed, or they will be banished to a lifetime of minimum wage jobs. Poverty rates will soar. Alice Waters, a chef and founder of Chez Panisse restaurant, says Americans have eaten their way to a really bad place, but that is going to change. Eating unhealthy food has caused over 60% of Americans to be overweight. The country is hostage to fast-food giants, factory farms and industrial food manufacturers who use harmful amounts of sugar, salt, corn, wheat, additives and laboratory- produced chemicals to make the food products we crave. Waters believes this trend will be rejected by consumers. Americans will demand healthy foods and will buy more from farmers’ markets and we’ll see a revival of small mom and pop restaurants.
