A Trip To Shipshewana Indiana

One of my favorite places to go to is Shipshewana Indiana. We usually try to take the trip at least once or twice a year. I really enjoy the atmosphere, food, and the fun things to do in Shipshewana.

There are a few things we do every time we go.

  • Have a homemade pretzel at Jo Jo's pretzels.
  • The kids ride the carousel at the top of the Mercantile building.



  • A couple other favorites are the bulk food store, and Yoders. Both are great places to locate hard to find food and other items you don't see every day.


One of my favorite trips was a visit to a working Amish farm in a Shipshewana buggy tour. We saw how a working dairy farm was operated, and visited the farm's beautiful gardens, and the kids had fun checking out all the animals.




They also have an Amish-Mennonite museum, a water park, and some of the most delicious home cooked meals ever. I was just there a few weeks ago, but I'm already ready to go back again.

I've Been Missing In Action

I've been missing in action at this blog for quite a while now. I'm going to try to start stopping by and updating this blog once in a while. I'm not promising anything real regular, but you know maybe more often than once a year.

I've been up to quite a bit since I've been here last, blogging and writing my heart out.

If you want more regular updates you can follow me at Twitter, check out my Squidoo profile, or friend me on Facebook.

I'll be back with more later!

Have You Tried Pandora Radio?

I am a big fan of Pandora Radio. I actually discovered it almost a year ago when I was writing an article on internet radio stations. Pandora became the favorite of the internet radio stations I checked out, I ended up making the entire article about Pandora.

At Pandora just plug in the artist, or type of music you want to hear, and Pandora creates a custom play list based on your artist. It's a great way to hear new songs you normally wouldn't hear.

I enjoy listing to Pandora while I'm working. I'm posting about this today, because it is one of many websites listed in the Bzzagent Frogpond.

Blog Talk Gossip

I just joined a new Yahoo! group for bloggers, called Blog Top Gossip. The group is geared toward bloggers who would like to interact with other bloggers. I would like to say I've been a great participator, but I've been a much better lurker.

If you have a blogging question, or you're just not sure how to do something, just ask the group. Often someone else has had the same problem, and may be able to help you resolve your issue. I get the messages in digest form, and I really enjoy reading them. If you decide to check it out for yourself tell 'em Linette sent you!
