64This morning when I sat down at the computer, the temp on Pasty.NET's home page just about matched this shot from Tom Suggs' guest album. I just noticed the artist's name on the lower part of the thermometer looks like "Chuck Hopper". Hmmm... I can't remember painting that one.

It has been a week like any other week at the Pasty Cam. Interesting conversation, scenic beauty, history and memories... Thursday's dialog about 9/11/01 was especially meaningful. I would just like to thank everyone who makes this web project such a positive experience: the Gallery contributors, the forum posters, the staff and volunteers who maintain it, the sponsors who support it... and, of course, thanks to all who order pasties, which keeps our kitchen busy.

In a way I wish I could have spent the week with Toivo, trekking around New Zealand. But the Keweenaw is a wonderful place to be, especially this time of year. The Autumn changes are just beginning, and days ahead promise to be colorful ones. Stay tuned :o)

Love the little weather icon in your message. The weather in the Keweenaw is always something to talk about and I think folks around the country would enjoy seeing it every day ( Maybe ? )

Charlie - The artist's name is Chuck Ripper. He is quite a famous wildlife artist and his name is very marketable.

Referring to yesterdays cam. notes
If only we could practice " Everymans Right"
See www.virtual.finland.Go to Information, then articles "Nature and environment", then Links
Everymans Right"
I'm sure if you read it you will ponder "why can't we?"

I had to search a bit to find what you refered to, and I didn't have time to read the whole thing, so I just read two that I figured would summarize it all:
Interpreting Everyman's Right in Finland
Everyman's Right: A Practical Summary

That "Everyman's Right" is interesting and I would be absolutely thrilled if we could all practice it here also, but my uncle had to post NO TRESPASS signs last year for the first time on our UP farm land when our bulldozer road became the latest local teen hot party spot (you have to go up the driveway and through the yard past the house to access it).

Some friends of ours (also UP) were terrorized in their own yard by drunk downstate hunters one fall (verbally abusive, physically threatening and disturbing the farm animals).

I know it is a shame that the jerky few ruin it for the reasonable many, but what is one to do when the few were raised poorly or are too immature to trust and the rest of us can't tell just by looking into which category our "trespassers" may fall?

A non-UP example: I went to the Field Museum in Chicago this summer and was sadly amused to see that there are people whose sole job it is to monitor the shuttle bus lines as the public cannot be trusted to stand in line. And their services were needed while I was there as a few riders couldn't do it at all, much less courteously. The many were fine.
