What an end to the MSU game....... congrats to the Spartans. And to the Wisconsin fans who didn't set fire to anything to protest the call. We need more of that these days!

And it seems the Wolves pulled out a win in football too!

By Steve Haagen (Radsrh) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 08:00 am:

good morning

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 08:00 am:

Good morning everybody out there in pasty land. Mid 40's here today, which means the little snow we have will be gone!

How 'bout those Wolverines?? Was that not awesome?? Yayyyy

Have a great day!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 08:03 am:

Awesome, unless you were up until 11:15 pm watching the game and then had to be back up at 4:20 am for work!! L

Oh well, self-inflicted wound I suppose to watch a whale of a game.....

We need to find a way to let this page update itself every morning. For the second day in a row we are dealing with unexpected challenges. I'll be spending some time on the top of Brockway this morning, right after I get this snowmobile started.

Promise we'll have the photos of the day when I get back.

If anyone can do that Charlie, you can. Sounds like you've had quite
a day.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 07:14 pm:

Quite a year so far. Murphy's law is in full effect. We finally got Brockway repaired and the Pasty Cam "on the air".

Thanks to everyone who finds their way to this page each day, even before we do at Pasty Central.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 08:21 pm:

Happy birthday to my wife, Kathy.

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 08:22 pm:

'Thank You, Charlie.' ;O)

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 08:34 pm:

Don't work yourself to death, Charlie. Remember #3. Besides, we'll all show up come rain or shine.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 09:53 pm:

Well good grief, how early do you have to get up to get even a feather?;) Just kidding, Charlie, I'm sure we all appreciate the work you put into this, and in all kinds of weather! Thanks lots!
Congratulations jbuck!

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 09:56 pm:

Wait a minute, I'm not done.....wanted to wish Thomas' wife, Kathy, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 09:56 pm:


Can just picture you half frozen on the top of Brockway, focusing intently on correcting the problem and restoring service to your subscribers. I'm sure most know of and appreciate your efforts beyond measure.

Those of us in the hinterlands appreciate your concern with posting the new page every day (to keep the string alive) but want you to always take care of yourself and not worry if one day 11:59pm comes and the new page isn't there. We understand and care more about you than the record!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 10:01 pm:

Thanks, Charlie:) We don't say that often enough! If it weren't for you, we wouldn't all know each other and get to see the beauty of the UP from all over the planet.

Love the pilot's view of Eagle Harbor. E Neil's one lucky guy!

Shirley, normally to get the bird, you have to try and be there when Charlie asks the question, or just get on here at 8:00 a.m. That's the time Charlie set in case the picture's not up yet. Hope that helps:)

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 10:07 pm:

Yep, Deb, I know how that way works, but thought if I posted early, as did jbuck, I could expect to get a 'jump' on everybody else.:) So much for great expectations, eh?;>
