    How Could This Work Without Cell Phones? --- Amish Uber?

    Man launches 'Amish Uber,' a horse-and-buggy ride-hailing service

    By The Associated Press

    COLON, Mich. Look out Lyft, move over Uber: A southern Michigan man has launched a horse-and-buggy ride-hailing service.
    WWMT-TV reported Timothy Hochstedler dubs his service "Amish Uber," though he's not a driver for the company. A sign on the side of his buggy reads, "Amish Horse & Buggy Rides $5," and he offers trips around the St. Joseph County community of Colon.

    Hochstedler said he enjoys the conversations with customers. And his horse is friendly "a people's horse."

    Still, there's no app to hail this horse-and-buggy: Would-be customers have to flag it down.

    Here's the link:

    GB1 and Kray Gelder like this.
    "When under trial, let no one say: 'I am being tried by God.' For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. . . . Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17

    Amish have cell phones and they consider it OK to use solar chargers for them. At least those in southern MI do and I am sure other Amish do too.

    Why did the words 'horse whisperer' leap into my head. I wonder if the Amish would go for solar-powered electric buggies one day.
    You may forget but let me tell you this: someone in some future time will think of us-Sappho
