from Pennsylvania! Home of J.D. Lohr's Arts and Crafts and Live Edge Free

"If future generations are to remember
us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the
miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in
the beginning, not just after we got through with it."
