BTW Katmyluv.........Just south of Lexington, KY and not too far from your son is the Shaker community at Pleasant Hill. Karen and I have gone there on numerous occasions and it is simply beautiful and educational too. Lots of books for sale including songbooks. I'll send you some info on the place. 8 or 9 years ago, Karen and her grandmother spent a weekend there in the original buildings. You'd love the place. Wait a minute....

Yep...everybody got a website don't they? Here they are.

Pleasant Hill

Mainly associated with New England as you know, a lot of people aren't aware of the Kentucky colony. It did quite well and is now simply a beautiful place.
