One of my favorites from the Pasty Cam Archives appears in today's Cameo - that picture of the wet moss really captures this time of year.

Good morning all! Another fine day scheduled! Enjoy.

That would be Johnny Nash, 1973. Any relation to FRNash?

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 07:03 am:

That was going to be my Bonus follow up Question. I had a hunch the winner would ask that, and she threw in 1973 for us all. Oh wow, that was back with first Mrs. H. Now that was Bobbysgirl, a easy name and song to recall. Janie get's to have a xtra brite day on us U-all. What say you FRNash?

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 07:09 am:

That was one of my favorite songs, next to "Stir It Up" in high school days! The title is "I Can See Clearly Now" released actually in 1972, but my wore out 45 says 1973 on the label. The song was used for a Windex t.v. commercial.

Hello All:

Please feel free to forward to interested parties.

This will be the second planning meeting concerning the centennial for the 1913 Strike. Our January meeting in Laurium coincided with a snowstorm, so we'll be interested to see if the spring weather will draw more folks out. We hope to continue conversation on appropriate ways to mark the anniversary and identify partner organizations who might want to be involved.

Look forward to seeing you there.

*Advance Planning for 1913 Strike Centennial*

Community input and volunteers are sought in planning activities to mark =the centennial of the 1913 Michigan copper miners' strike. A second
public meeting is set for Saturday, April 26, at 1:00pm at the Finnish-American Heritage Center at 601 Quincy Street in Hancock.

The nearly year-long strike by members of the Western Federation of Miners is one of the most significant events in Copper Country history.
Initial planning for the anniversary was begun by a steering committee drawn from staff at the Michigan Tech Archives and the Finnish-American
Heritage Center, and other individuals and rganizations are encouraged to participate. Current ideas include historical exhibits, tours of historic sites connected to the strike's significant events, publication of books and web content, a memorial ceremony on the centennial of the Italian Hall tragedy and many other public events across the region.

The April 26 meeting will provide an update on planning to date and will welcome ideas for related activities to mark the centennial in 2013.
Because of the significance of the anniversary, planners are expecting to seek funding support through grants and awards, hence the need for
advanced planning.

Although still five years away, the organizing committee encourages volunteers to bring ideas to the April 26 meeting and consider becoming
involved in the planning for these very unique centennial events. For more information contact the Michigan Tech archives by telephone at
906-487-2505 or by e-mail at copper@mtu.edu

Yep, " But They Don't Write Them Like That Anymore" aka The Break-up song. Let's all keep it together. and go on Strike?
If your nose went on Strike,you'd have to Picket.

I was out walking at 5:15 this morning and the moon was big and bright and birds were all waking up and a I even saw a little bunny...what a glorious morning.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 09:10 am:

Good morning! All these song titles bringing me back this morning...nice!!

Now David, how can you be sad that the Wizard named Ozzy could have beaten the Predators. Oh my, talk about excitement in this house. It was a great series and Ozzy should have had 2 shutouts instead of one. Glad they replaced Hasek with him. I love Ozzy. Go WINGS!!!!

Great slide show this morning. I just loved the rain soaked moss. Gorgeous!

By Eugene Zuverink (Zube) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 09:48 am:

I see that gas is 3.69 in Munising and 3.79 in Trenary. I guess there right 4.00 is coming. I paid 3.34 in Plainwell yesterday.

I heard on the news we have hit a new high on gas prices. If it wasn't uphill from Houghton to Calumet I would consider riding my bike to work.

Janie T. (Bobbysgirl):
"Any relation to FRNash?"

Nope, 'fraid not. I have relatively few relatives named Nash — in spite of a large family on my dad's side. (My dad yoosta say: "I have nine brothers, and each one of them has a sister".)

However, my dad was one of the only two brothers that changed the family name to Nash, that because back in Deetroit in the mid 40's, no-one could either spell or pronounce Nakkula! Can you imagine? What about da Finnish heritage? (I still have mixed emotions about that name change!)


By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 11:53 am:

My DEE-troit relations changed the pronuncation of our last name. It is Pihlaja. In Finnish it is pronounced PIH-ly-ya and my DEE-troit relations called themselves Pi-LA-ja. Eeewww....I would never call them that. That's wrong!!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 01:44 pm:

Almost as bad as pronouncing a pasty "paste-ee", which is something you get when you...... you get the idea!! ;-)

By Alicia Marshall (Aliciak) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 02:19 pm:

Interesting name change of Nssh. I once had a person ask me to look up her Finnish name of
D'Wainio. I was some what miffed until I realized it had been Wainio. I thought that she was pulling my leg. How does D'Koski sound?
My Hulkkonen family in Marquette changed theirs
to Hawkins. I hope the old generation is telling
the new one of the name changes or they will be lost in the census forever.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 03:09 pm:

FRNash...my maiden name was Johnson but I was not related to any Johnson's except my brothers and sisters, but I was related to a lot of Jones's. My married name is Thomson spelled without a P. Love those name games!

Just found out mail rates go up again May 12th, will be 42c for a letter now. Just bought a roll of stamps too and they were not the forever ones either.

If anyone wants to hear oldie top hits FREE on the web 1950 to 1982 hits go to www.tropicalglen.com Pick a year, then a song, then all that years top songs will continue playing randomly one after another streaming audio!

Here comes the Osmonds - The Twelfth Of Never!

By Paul Oesterle (Paulwebbtroll) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 05:25 pm:

Hey Zube. I had to go into Lansing this forenoon to the eye doctor. As we passed through Williamston, 1 station was 3.69, the other 2 in town were 3.45. At Okemos the Speedway station at the corner of Dobie and Grand river was 3.69. A 1/2 mile down the road Meijers was 3.34 so I pulled in and filled my half empty pickup. We never saw another station below 3.69. When we went back through Williamston all 3 stations were 3.69. Record profits. What a bunch of crooks!

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 08:49 pm:

Thanks Russ. I like the oldies especially! Nice day in N. Ga today!

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 11:07 pm:

Wow, we all owe it to you Russ! I love the oldie site! I've got it on 1969, the year I graduated from h.s. Tomorrow I'll go for 1970 to get more into psychedelia (is there such a word?) Love the picture on your profile!
