"Lancaster County" True or False

Okay, i must preface this "series" by saying-- I DONT KNOW EVERYTHING, and i may make mistakes. i dont feel like doing too much research, so you'll just have to go by what i say.

So, here are some statements. Guess if they're true or false:

1) Amish people are really poor
2) The amish dont have to pay taxes
3) If you see a horse and buggy on the road, its an amish person
4) They keep COMPLETELY separated from "the english." (what they call non-amish folk)
5) The pennsylvania dutch come from Holland
6) Red barns were originally painted with animal blood
7) Some Amish grow tobacco and marijuana
8) The mennonites are the same as the Amish
9) Amish live only in Lancaster County
10) Lancaster is underdeveloped and mainly farm land

Okay, i suppose that is enough for now. Have fun guessing! i'll give the answers later.

Oh! Oh! Call on me! I know, I know!

I'll refrain from giving the answers. And I won't give hints either. Clairissa, that means you, too!

And Beth- the "1) Amish people are really poor" means monetary wise. Are they rolling in the dough, so to speak? Or are they so poor they don't have two pennies to rub together?

And I thought of a question # 11. Here it is: The amish are not allowed to use electricity.
