Phony fire from decorative heater. It isn't hot at all...the "fire" illusion is created by two 40-watt light bulbs underneath. This is what you may have seen advertised as "The Amish Heater". The fact is, it's misleading advertising. The heaters come in an attractive wooden mantle on wheels. Only the mantle is made by the Amish. The heater itself is manufactured elsewhere. After all, the Amish do not use electricity...but they are known for their fine craftsmanship and high ethical standards. Somebody else is making a fortune on the good reputation of the Amish people, and I call that exploitation. Having had my rant, I do like the heater, but it is nothing more than a fancy forced air space heater that takes up much more "space" than necessary.

Horse and Buggy
I saw this in the community of Harshaville, Adams County, Ohio You'll notice numerous modern safety features. I noted an electric heater as I asked the owner for permission to photograph. The friendly young Amishman gave permission to photograph the horse and buggy but requested no pictures of himself and his son. You can see the privacy curtain.
