    I love Ruth. It's going to be great watching her explore our world, and seeing things through her fresh eyes. However, what's with the smoking? I missed the first part of the show, so don't know if anything was mentioned about smoking in the Amish community. I'm assuming they are not smokers, unless they grow the tobacco themselves, but maybe they do buy cigarettes. Or did she start this habit the minute she walked into the house? Did I miss something?

    I think Ruth is such a doll. Her innocence and appreciation of all the new things she encounters is very endearing to me; actually, it renews my own appreciation of these things I take for granted every day. I was really moved at her first time seeing the beach. I wonder if she'll return to the Amish or stay on the outside, I can't tell so far. She seems to be one most awed by the new experiences. I guess we'll see.

    Ruth looks *a lot* like my friend, Young. Only Young's asian. It's uncanny.

    But yeah, I like Ruth as well. She's very pretty, and seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

    Are you sure Ruth was smoking? Maybe you were mistaken, because I didn't see that. (or i blinked)

    Yep, she was smoking while she was telling Jonas that the city kids were talking smack about the Amish.
