Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 07:43 am:

Concluding another month, we honor individuals who have passed on, folks who touched our lives and leave behind a legacy that will always be remembered. We invite you to add names of significance and importance to you:

Michael J. Aittama
Robert "Bob" Maki
Reino Narhi
Tacy Richardson
Paul Swift
Servicemen and women who gave all

Today also completes 12 full years of the Pasty Cam, a "Daily glimpse of life in the U.P." for the last 4,383 days. The journey has been a labor of love, shared by many friends along the way who've added pictures and comments, giving this small corner of cyberspace a life of its own. Paul Roberts is one such friend, who provided dozens of those pictures, including today's - a classic U.P. winter scene that Paul captured a few years back while passing through Trap Rock Valley on a snowmobile. Thanks Paul, and thanks to all who have visited, watched, listened, commented and contributed to Pasty Central over the years, and especially since the time it became a daily experience.

Have a good week :o)

P.S. Happy birthday to Alex, whose family inspired us to begin this journey in 1998.

Charlie, we should all be thanking you for giving us this wonderful place to have that "ahh" feeling for at least a few moments every day. I enjoy looking at every picture and reading messages from life-long Yoopers, displaced Yoopers, and Yooper-wannabes like myself. One thing we all share is the love for the awesome beauty and wonder of that unique part of our state. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful site.

By DEAN SCHWARTZ SR. (Lulu) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 08:41 am:

In loving memory of my sister-in-law Carol Smith, 7-28-1946 - 2-6-2007.

...and I second that.

By Diana P. (Diana) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 08:47 am:

Charlie and Company, I'll third that "Thank you!!". I was born in Marquette, raised in the LP; however, I very proudly consider myself a Yooper. Every vacation my family took while I was growing up was "Up North", to the UP. The UP is absolutely my favorite place in the world. I found your site by chance, when my two children were students at Tech, starting in 2001. Thank you so much for letting me be "Up North" in the UP every day since then!

By Donna (Donna) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 08:58 am:

Yes indeed...thank you Charlie and all of Pasty! I "grew up" on Pasty...when I first got the internet..it was through Pasty.com...you guys helped so much...Thanks for that too!

I'd like to add my thanks for Pasty central. I am throughly hooked on it and look at it daily even when I am actually IN the U.P.! But I love it most when I am not there, because I feel connected.

By Judy Kinnunen (Finngal) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 01:04 pm:

In loving memory of my sister, Mary Lynne Lappala, 8-10-43 ~ 3-1-09. Missing you so much.

By Donna (Donna) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 01:55 pm:

Another Neale Donald Walsch quote from "Conversations with God".....

....that when a loved one leaves the body, it is a cause for a genuine and special joy.

It can be difficult to experience this joy over the death of a loved one, and sadness is both perfectly natural and very "okay." Yet know this: your Beloved is celebrating Continuation Day. This is the most glorious experience you could possibly imagine. It is, truly, heaven!

And there is this: You will once again reunite with the soul of this loved one. Nor will you ever be separate even now, for their Essence flies to you at your very thought of them. I would not tell you this were it not true.

(Beautiful stuff)...

By Uncle Chuck at Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 01:59 pm:

By tim larsen (Starrnote) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 08:43 pm:

In memory of my mother-in-law, Florence Couture Chartrand...a true, blue, Yooper. She was raised by the nuns in the Marquette Orphanage, was adopted by a wonderful family in Escanaba, married and moved to Munising to raise her family of 3 boys and a girl (my wife) and then on to Green Bay, Wi. where she passed on 8-5-09 at the age of 75. When perturbed with her son-in-law, she would raise her fists to me and exclaim: "I'll give you one of these (right fist)and two of these!"(left fist)...Rest in peace, Flo. We miss you!

By Dave Van Dyk (Daveincolumbus) on Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 09:38 pm:

Congratulations and, more importantly, THANK YOU!!
for hosting this great web site and allowing all us
Yoopers, current and former, to have a little taste
of home on the web each day. I do not know what I
would do without it. Again, thanks very much!
