Good morning to you down there in Tennessee David. It's 43 here in Tuscola county this morning. We've had quite a few night time temps in the 40's recently. I love it.

Good Morning everyone, got back from the Copper Country last night. Had a nice trip but wish I was still there.

I'm wondering wether there's some kind of "header" for the guest galleries somewhere, explaining purpose and limitations, sort of like the explanation here and in the AUP for the Cam and the What'sUP ... ?

I have to say THANK YOU to Mikie and Precious for the lovely gift I received in the mail this weekend. It seems that Mikie is a talented woodworker. He made me a beautiful Cross pen with wood from the UP. It is positively beautiful to touch and to look at! I will treasure it forever. It is positively amazing how much joy continues to come back to you when you do something for someone else. :-D

By Margaret, Amarillo TX (Margaret) on Monday, July 2, 2007 - 09:58 am:

Ya know, Mikie's that kind a guy.

I just read the front page of and saw that The Hut is hosting "Fifties Night" this Thursday; what a great idea Charlie. Too bad you couldn't gather up a few of the classic cars that roam the copper country and get a photo of them parked out front.

Speaking of Mikie and Precious, hopefully if the Dr. and I have enough time, we will get to meet the great Mikie (and Precious, too) in a few weeks while we are in Berkely visiting my aunt/uncle. Hey Mikie, that Wendy's invite still hold??

Looking for some help, We have friends coming up that need a place to stay. I am looking for a hotel/motel or cabin in the Keweenaw that will allow a dog any ideas?

Well the Mrs. and I, and Rocco made it to L.B. last night after a great day on our boat in Munising crusing around Pictured Rocks. Rain today oh well, we got a few chores done. We'll be U.P. all week, trying to talk her into going to the parade in Gay on the 4th, what a hoot! What time is the parade in Gay, anyone know?

2pm for the parade in Gay.

Will someone please tell me what a "Popeye Run" is? Kiitos.

By Happy to be in the U.P. (Lahelo) on Monday, July 2, 2007 - 09:29 pm:

I do believe its a race, Matt.

By Happy to be in the U.P. (Lahelo) on Monday, July 2, 2007 - 09:34 pm:

Matt I found this article about he Popeye run on line.
Fourth of July, with the free Popeye Run 5K and 10K, with their downhill courses that finish in Eagle Harbor, and the surprisingly-grand fireworks that night in Copper Harbor. (The best viewing spot? Get there early and park in the first turnoff on the drive out of town up Brockway Mountain, then spread a blanket on the hillside

Hmmm.....didn't anybody take any pictures at the Pasty Fest? I haven't received any photos or seen any new ones added from the festivities of the day and I was hoping to use someone's shot's of the fun, for Thursday's Daily Pasty Cam. Can anyone supply me with a photo or two from Pasty Fest Day? Send them to:
Thank you!

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Tuesday, July 3, 2007 - 04:46 am:

Well I guess I'm too early this AM! Good morning every one anyhow!

By Matt Karhu (Matt_k) on Tuesday, July 3, 2007 - 07:21 am:

A Finnish-American internet friend advised me that contrary to popular opinion, the pasty originated in Italy. His explanation was that the word pasty is taken from the Italian word "pasticcio", which is defined as a meat pie. The Italian miners apparently brought the pasty to Cornwall when they went there to work in the mines.

Isn't that interesting? I never heard that before.
