Toivo from Toivola (Toivo) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 07:35 am:

The day has arrived to stand up and be counted! (Or if your taking care of business, better remain seated.) We've heard tell of Census workers taking some heat (they told me not to use the word 'crap') from some yoopers too busy to fill out the paperwork. But we all must do our duty, drop what we're doing, and FILL OUT THAT CENSUS FORM. That's the only way we'll keep on getting funding for facilities like at Esrey park in the top two photos - - where either no one was home, or couldn't come to the door right then.

In all seriouslyness, fill out your own form, and if your snowbird neighbors haven't noticed that distinctive red and white bag hanging on their knob, look up their number in Florida or Arizona or wherever and let 'em know, in case they missed getting a bag in snowbirdland. While your at it, tell them that the Pasty Cam anniversary month special has been extended through April, where you save $5 on every dozen pasties ordered just by mentioning "Pasty Cam" in the special instructions.

It has been good to get back to the U.P. this week and breath the purest most vitalizing air on earth. Unless of course you're downwind from...

Happy April Fool's Day!

Funny stuff, Toivo!! Downwind is right!!

I sent in my census last week, because I'm a "stand-up" guy.

By Donna (Donna) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 07:55 am:

My census form was on the ground when I got home. Good darn thing there wasn't one of them old fashioned blizzards going on...or I'd be in big trouble for not filling out that form.

On the other hand folks....the critters can't do it alone...WE have to help them. We are catching up to #2 and close to that #1 spot! LET'S ROCK THAT VOTE!!!

Thank you!

I notice that there is a picture of a calendar with the date April 1 and the following bold print from the government site;
The official Gov't Target Date for the Census forms April 2010

National Census Day—use this day as a point of reference for sending your completed forms back in the mail

Hopefully there are enough other supplies in the booths that the forms aren't used for an alternate purpose!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 08:07 am:

I thought it was funny that while today is the deadline to turn in the census forms, it asks on the form how many people are living in your household on April 1? So, if I were to turn in the form early and someone in my household, for what ever reason, left between then and April 1, would I get in trouble for falsifying my census form?????

By Deb L. (Lakegirl) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 08:18 am:

The census worker was making the rounds last weekend. Super easy and its was only about 10 questions, nothing overly personal to fill out!! Make sure you check their ID if they are going door to door, I think the man thought I was crazy, but I was just playing it safe. Have a great day everyone, and the photos gave me a good laugh!!!

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 08:26 am:

Get 'er done...fill out those census form.

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 08:53 am:

I heard there is a long form for the census where the 10 questions become 38, with questions such as what time you left for work the last time you went, & when was the last time you bought gas? Many silly questions that one should write NOYB to answer. Census taking is important so the State you live in can if they need more Senators to not represent your voice in Congress. So let them census takers know how many live in the house, & the age of each person is all they need to know,not how many gallons of water it takes your toilet to flush. If anyone got one of these long census forms, please let us know.Because, I find it hard to believe some of the things that are going to be asked on them. Nobody has ever been arrested or fined for not answering a question, just for giving false info.I will place None Of Your Business to a question I think is stupid.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 08:59 am:

My 94 year old mom got a long form and maybe those questions were there, but I don't remember them! (I did it for her.)It actually went very quickly, because it has pages for like 15 people and you just skip them.

Donna...just a note about the CCHS voting. I have had a couple instances where it was just not that defined what the animal was. This one today surely is a calico/white cat all stretched out? Another one was a strange colored frog? (eyesight not that great sometimes) Good luck to CCHS!

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 09:51 am:

Haven't received a census form, nor had anyone knocking on our door!!?? Probably will now, if 'they' read pasty.com.:[

By Donna (Donna) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 12:24 pm:

I know Kay...had that issue too, but it looks like they want the simplest answer. Cat, Dog, Fish, etc.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 03:03 pm:

Mine arrived in the mail last month.

By Yooperguide (Huntandfish) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 04:01 pm:

Got the census form, it was easy, the ten questions were;

1) Are you still living?
2) Do you suffer from gas?
3) Do you watch Dr. Phil?
4) Do you take laxatives?
5) Do you dream of Rosie O'Donnell?
6) Do you hear voices in your head?
7) Do you know who the president is?
8) Do you know how many kids you have?
9) Do you know where your kids are?
10) Do you know where to shove this form?

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 04:37 pm:

Put it inside the doors in the above photos?

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 06:49 pm:

I get it yooperguide! APRIL FOOL! hey?

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 11:13 pm:

Dave, the census has nothing to do with the amount of Senators we have. Two for every state is the max. Today was my dads 99th birthday. Tomorrow they would have been married 78 years.

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Friday, April 2, 2010 - 05:45 am:

You are right there Michael, lets call them their aid's then they will need more of. Many states are growing in population if they have jobs, like North Dakota.
