PastyFest was a big hit yesterday here in the U.P. Which year in today's slideshow has a view of where PastyFest took place?

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Sunday, June 27, 2010 - 08:00 am:

I'd say 1964. Have a good day!
First Post
In 2004 we had a shot of 1964 Calumet


Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, June 27, 2010 - 08:08 am:

Good Morning. 2004 shows a photo of Calumet, where the Pasty Fest is held.

I think Marsha meant 1984 - those numbers are pretty close on the 'puter.

I love the 2009 picture.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Sunday, June 27, 2010 - 08:43 am:

Alright, where is my post from much earlier? I said 1964!

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Sunday, June 27, 2010 - 08:44 am:

Now it appeared! Nevermind!

I sure enjoy all the snapshots of cranes. And does anyone know how/where I could get maps with all the smaller lakes marked? How about the frequently mentioned waterfalls? I see all these names mentioned about the old days but have no idea where most of them are. And I love maps, a hobby of mine. Thanks anyone.

I like the photos, although the 1 from 2000 is sad. I hope the homeowners were able to rebuild.

Was there for the Pasty Fest Saturday. Watched the parade and then wandered over to the park.
Lots of people and many were eating there pasties as they walked around the various booths. Was a nice day for such an activity.

Great Review today! 2003 from Mary of the first island at Medora, brings back memories, my 3 cousins and myself split a case of Carlings Black Label Beer out there one night when we were 14 and camping out on the island, took it from our uncles, I was never so sick the next day! Great memories!

Hi everyone, the following is something that as soon as I found it I thought everyone here could appreciate it:

At a time when our president and other politicians tend to apologize for our country's prior actions, here's a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our country.

Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60s when
DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaule said he wanted all US
military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"
DeGaule did not respond.

When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the
Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
'empire building' by George Bush.

He answered by saying,
"Over the years, the United States has sent many of
its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom
beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for
in return is enough to bury those that did not

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers
were taking part, including French and American. During a break,
one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you
heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft
carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he
intend to do, bomb them?"

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: "Our carriers have three
hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are
nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to
shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to
feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand
gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a
dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and
from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?"

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included
Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French
navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large
group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks, but a
French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many
languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that
we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than
speaking French?"

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the
Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't
have to speak German."


Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.
At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

“You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."
"Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he
quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in
1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen
to show a passport to."
