Hi Annabelle, Welcome. You know, maybe you could think of yourself not as the "only" y.i.f.a.b. in your town -- but simply -- the first.

If you share your enthusiasm with family and friends (just give 'em samples, of course, don't force it), it's quite possible someone will be interested. This stuff is catching.

Pick some samples that deal in some way with life-as-we-know-it-in-Indiana, the better to catch someone's attention. For instance, if there's lots of farming around, Stan Rogers' Field Behind the Plow would be very familiar to everyone.

Just some thoughts for you. I do believe it is way more fun to be first, instead of only.

Cheers! --Larry in Detroit
