Mary Drew at Pasty Central on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:15 am:

The Keweenaw Lighthouse Celebration 2004, is a two day annual event in which you'll have the unique experience of visiting the maritime landmarks scattered along the Upper Michigan coast of Lake Superior. Pasty.net is a proud sponsor of this happening and thanks to Neil Harri over in our ever-expanding Guest Gallery, we all get a 'view from above' of one of the featured - the Manitou Lighthouse on the eastern end of Manitou Island.

Starting Saturday, July 24th, there's a self guided tour, where you'll tour 8 lighthouses and beacons. Then you can add 4 more, by taking the cruise. Include today's photo and you've toured the Superior Lights, by land, sea and air. What a way to go!

Good Morning!! This is the photo, I needed to check out before starting work.
First Post

By Yooper in Westland on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:22 am:

Ahhhh....that feels better. Got my daily dose of the lake!

By smf in troll land on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:22 am:

Good morning everyone! Great picture.

By BT,TC..on vacation :- on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:27 am:

Good Morning from Beautiful Curtis in the eastern UP. Been a great week to be on vacation...lots of sun..thunderstorms over the lake...loons calling mournfully....no wind till today....whitecaps on the Big Manistique! Have been enjoying all the sites and smells of summer in the GREAT U.P. oh.....I forgot to mention the sunsets! AWESOME!

By Jerry Fl. on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:29 am:


Great Picture wish I was still there.

By anita, mi on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:30 am:

morning all. ahhhh great pic. it gives a great start to the day. I'll forgive you for being later than normal.

By BCT,mi on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:53 am:

Nice picture once again. Still looking for a ride to the cc. Email me.

By H from Oklahoma on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:56 am:

Well I've done it again. I will be coming back to the U.P. I even have the weekend off before I have to load in Baraga on Monday. As always can't wait to get there. Remember everybody if you see a faded red Peterbilt truck cruising around anywhere north of "the bridge" this weekend wave and say Hi.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:12 am:

ooooo! someone overslept this morning.

By Mary Ann WY on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:17 am:

What a nice photo! Wish we were there for the tour. Sure do miss the water in the summertime.

By Erik A,, Fairfax, Virginia on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:31 am:

A great shot. I've just made it the background for my computer. Living in Northern Virginia and working in Central Maryland, I don't get to see lighthouses much anymore. Thanks for the refreshing image.

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:57 am:

Nice picture. I love lighthouses. I think its what they symbolize, a beacon of light to guide lost mens way. Reminds me of the Lord.

By lw.MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:58 am:

Very nice photo. Hey H from Oklahoma -- when you say "north of the bridge", do you mean the Mac or the Houghton bridge? I'm N of Houghton, but I"ll keep my eye out for your faded red Peterbuilt truck, and I'll be sure to blow the horn and wave. I have alot of respect for truckers. They are the backbone of America. Some folks don't realize that everything they use, eat or wear (unless they grew it themselves) was delivered by trucks. Drive safely, and keep on truckin'. Hope to see you in the UP.

By Cindy, St. Clair Shores, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:11 am:

Oooh la la! Lighthouses are my passion and I've never had the pleasure of seeing this one. I wish I could be there for the cruise, but I'll have to settle for seeing what I can from land in August. The Keweenaw is a lighthouse lover's dream. Thanks for the great picture.

By Kent on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:15 am:

I'm drivin' back to da UP in two weeks. Can't wait! From Boston, MA to Boston Location. I hope to get to today's lighthouse, as well as the Crisp Point Light.

Crisp Point from the Archives

Jeff Tafel, Houston, Texas on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:19 am:

I can almost smell that great lake air from here...

By H from Oklahoma on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:19 am:

Thank you so much for the words. I do mean the portage bridge. The Mac is a nice bridge but not the best one. I will keep an eye out for you lw.

By KathyR, IN on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:28 am:

Visited Crisp Point Lighthouse last fall when I was in the UP. Getting there is as much fun as seeing it.

By julie b., MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:33 am:

This is a great shot! It needs to be a WOW!!!

By Charlotte, IN on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:42 am:

A month ago I was at the Crisp Point Light. My second trip to see it. I love it at Crisp Point. They have done lots of work there since my first visit. The drive out to the lighthouse is great--one of my favorite. On the way back from the light this time I spotted a fox den along the side of the road. It was so great seeing the four young ones. When I got the pictures developed I discovered mom trotting off to the high grass in the first one. I was so caught up with the idea of seeing the den at all that I never even noticed her. Lucky I took the picture. As we sat in the van watching the young ones it was like they wanted us to get out and play. No way---I knew mom wasn't far away and didn't care to mess with her.

By Chuck Langlois, New Jersey on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:43 am:

Love this shot. Started my day off with a bang!

By Keith MI. on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:45 am:

Just 23hrs and 20 min. until we leave for ten days in Copper Harbor. Great pic defintely needs to be a WOW.

By Steve, Pittsburgh, PA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:48 am:

All you folks speaking of travelling up north soon,..... Boy oh boy! Why did I use up all of my vacation this winter! :(

It was great although.... Any Keweenaw Yoopers remember the snows of January 5 & 6 this year?

January snow
Yep, I remember!

mckenneyp, GR MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:53 am:

15 Days to Chassell. I love lighthouses, as did my mom. I have a neat story:

We use to stay in Skannee (North of L'Anse on the Huron Bay) and go to the mouth of the Huron river and would gaze out at the lighthouse on the Huron Islands. My Mom always wanted to go and see that light, but at the time the little boat we owned wouldn't make the trip out and back safley. One year for Christmas I was able to find a great close up framed picture of the light when I lived in Marquette and she always said that was something she wanted to see in her life time. Three years ago now my Dad invested in a new fishing boat, and they took it up when they stayed in Big Bay. On a beautiful and flat calm day my Dad and Mom and little brother were able to make the to the Huron Islands and my Mom was able to see and walk around and be at the Huron Island light. It was a very happy time for her and my Dad was really happy he could get her out there.

Less than 5 weeks later my Mom had a brain aneurysm that burst and she had a major stroke and went home to our Father.

My Dad and Brother and I are very thankful that she was able to see that light up close that she had wanted to see for more than 15 years.

Just wanted to share that with everybody, and just how special things in the UP can be. We still enjoy coming back every year. Now we go to Chasell because Skannee and Big Bay are to far away from Copper Counrty! :-)

Have a great day everyone!

Copper Counntry Homecoming

By drifwud on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:04 am:

Whether we believe it or not, Manitou Island (The True "Spirit" Island) is said, by some, to be linked with the purification of the world. When I visit Pasty Central, I can see how that could happen.

By JoAnne Stefanac, Port Orchard, WA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:21 am:

Here's a story you will appreciate: My step mom is in a nursing home in Florida after a botched hip replacement (with staph infection) this spring. She's had 5 surgeries and many moves from hospital to/from nursing homes, etc. and has had SUCH a horrible time trying to eat. She has been existing on liquid meals and soup, mostly, saying nothing is good and her stomach turns at most of the foods.

Well, I decided to try and send her some pasties from Pasty.com. I had them sent to a friend of hers that I've been in touch with. I called her a couple days ago and she was just beside herself with delight over getting that first pasty. She delighted in telling about how she ate it all and it tasted SO good and it was the BEST thing I could ever have sent, on and on and on. Oh my. The best money I've ever spent I think. I'm really hoping that those pasties help her to build a little strength to undergo her (hopefully) final surgery in couple weeks to put that hip back in.

I was so thankful to have that service available. It sure made an old lady happy, I'll tell ya! Please, tell all your people there how much they helped me and my step mom, Shirley. Sorry to be so long winded but I just had to tell you the story...

By drifwud on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:21 am:

mckennyp, gr,mi:

See. . . now that's exactly what I mean. People on this site are so sharing and caring and understanding. That in itself is spiritually cleansing. Thank you much for sharing! I'm sorry I didn't get to know your mom, but now, whenever I look across The BAY at the Huron Islands,from the Keweenaw Peninsula, I'll think about your story. You can be sure that your memories, along with your mom's spirit, will always dwell there.
Hold on tight to your dreams.

By pastynaut on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:28 am:

Behold . . .the power of PASTY!

By Mary Lou on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:37 am:

Mary Drew at Pasty Central....Love today"s pictures...Perfect for a hot summer day..I do think Michigan and Wisconsin are the prettiest states in the union!!...........I am hoping that Brockway Photos will post the Reunion picture from Lake Linden High School All Class Reunion......I am waiting for my copy but I think it would be so nice to see it on the web..........were you at the reunion??...I think everone had a great time!!!

Mary says: Sorry to say I didn't make the Reunion on Sunday, nor the Pasty Fest, my hubby and I were camping on our boat for some much needed R & R. From what I hear, both events were a huge success!

By camwatcher on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:08 pm:

JoAnne: I loved your heartwarming story of your Mother and the pasty. You can "take the girl out of the UP, but you can't take the UP out of the girl". I bet that pasty was teh best medicine.
Also hoping to hear that Darrell went through his hip surgery well yesterday. Hope he gets a hot pasty to recover with too !

By camwatcher on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:13 pm:

Is that a fire engine I see on the airport cam ? Are they testing it? Or is there something else going on there ?

By Roudy Mi on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:16 pm:

Cooling the tarmac so the passengers feet don't overheat on the way to the plane.

By camwathcer on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:19 pm:

Temps are dropping as we speak. Only 62 right now. Yesterday's 80-something was nearly the death of me.

By ert, GA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:24 pm:

JoAnne -- Great pasty-to-the-rescue story!

My mom had a similar problem some years ago w/ a broken ankle. Repeated infections (this is a much more common problem than hospitals like to admit), and they finally had to take out the hardware that was put in to stabilize the ankle and supposedly to help it heal. Apparently she was sensitive to the metal. Of course, they can't take it out of your step-mother's hip replacement but maybe they could try something different.

Anyway, wish her well for me.........and send her another pasty!

By JoAnne Stefanac, Port Orchard, WA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:27 pm:

ert, GA

They DID take her hip hardware out! She had a spacer put in for weeks and weeks until the infection cleared. It's been a very long, hard road but I think, with the help the those UP pasties, she might be on her final recovery road. If you could all keep her on your good thoughts list, she could use it!

By Cindy, St. Clair Shores, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:51 pm:

I visited Crisp Point Lighthouse last summer for the first time. It is definitely in the middle of nowhere, but a very beautiful setting. I have seen most of the lights in Michigan, but my absolute favorite is Eagle Harbor Lighthouse. What a pretty sight against the deep blue waters of Lake Superior and that fabulous rocky shoreline. I plan all our vacations around seeing a new lighthouse each time, if possible. Next month I'll be stopping at the Ontonogan Lighthouse on our way from the Keweenaw.

By vaalea on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 01:18 pm:

Air lift me outta here and drop me in that lake....90 degrees in Detroit is NOT pretty!

By sck, Phila on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 01:31 pm:

I'm from the UP and I've never heard of Crisp Point. Where is the lighthouse and how do you get there?

By Lowell, MO on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 01:41 pm:

You all can send some of that cool air off the Big Lake down here to Mid-Central Missouri. It was in the High 90's here yesterday and the low 90's today and with our humidity it makes the heat index shoot up.
Always enjoy the pics of the Lighthouses and the stories of each. Also enjoy the Pics of the Big Lake. Have seen a lot of this country, but there still isn't anything else to compare with it.

By cam, michigan on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 01:46 pm:

great lighthouse photo! gotta take the boat to the island sometime.

By anon/milw on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 02:10 pm:

Just goes to prove....PASTIES ARE LOVE

By Mike-Transplanted Yooper-Redford, Mi on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 03:00 pm:

Where exactly in Boston Location?

By keweenaw gal on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 03:29 pm:

Boston Location is located between Hancock and Calumet! Its on the opposite side that the airport is on!

By Lyn Rayrat on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 03:29 pm:

sck, Phila

Go to
for directions and info

By sck, Phila on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 04:05 pm:

Lyn Rayrat, Thanks!

By desert rat on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 04:49 pm:

The bridge is up. 4:50 p.m.

By sg/Milford on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 05:12 pm:

H from Oaklahoma, I'll be watching to see if you cross the bridge and wave at us. What product do you pick up in Baraga and take back? I hope you have a safe trip. Keep on Truckin'.

By Misplaced Michigander on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 05:15 pm:

It struck me as I was reading today's messages, just what a magnificent site this is. Here we are, drawn together by the love of the Upper Peninsula, waiting for news of Darryl's surgery, sending good thoughts to a truck driver from Oklahoma who is looking forward to few days in the place all of us would rather be, enjoying learned dissertations on the Finnish language (or is it Finnglish?), mourning with those who have lost loved ones, discussing our favorite light houses, etc. etc. This is not only quintessential America, it is the stuff of great novels! Thanks so much to all of you who work to bring us Pasty.com

By ert, GA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 05:41 pm:

JoAnne -- What a rough time she's had. I think she deserves several pasties a week, at least! She will definitely be in my thoughts!

By moi on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 05:57 pm:

Pasty.com is always the 2nd site I visit each day. The first is a news site, then pasty.com so the ol' spirits can get lifted back up after reading about the evils of the day! Keep up the great work!

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 06:04 pm:

This is the FIRST site I check right after I check my email. However, I check throughout the day, every day!

By Missin the UP from NJ on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 06:17 pm:

All the reasons listed above and more is why I visit this site almost every day.

Then there's the stellar photos! Like today's great shot. I think I'll try to fly over this spot in my dreams tonight... I hope, anyway! ;)

By missin'yooperville on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 06:24 pm:

Just wondering: if a person, a former Yooper, and a Troll decide to retire to, say someplace like Escanaba, would that count? It is still technically the UP, but not on Superior or that far north (nord)...
I can eat fresh pasties anytime I decide to make them. I suggest that many of you fellows out there who love pasties, learn to make them. They are not hard, a bit time consuming that's all.
However, I do find that my pasties never taste as good eaten anywhere else but north of the bridge (the one that counts).

By H from Oklahoma on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 06:48 pm:

Hello again everybody. Everyone is full of good cheer today. It sure is nice to hear it too. I always check this site first everyday and throughout the day too. sg/Milford I pickup Terex forklits in Baraga. I just pick up another piece of freight going to Florence, Wisconsin. So after I unload in Brookings S.D. in the morning I will be headed there and then on up to Heaven for the weekend. I have never been to The U.P. in the winter, I am looking forward to getting snowed in atleast once anyway. I will be crossing the bridge Friday night or Saturday morning. See you soon.

By Kathy, Fowler, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 07:08 pm:

We just made our reservations at Fort Willkins for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week! Can't wait! My husband and I plan on biking through the Keewenaw, so if you see a tandem speeding by, please wave or say hi. By the way, if anyone knows some good places to bike (paved only - our tires are too skinny to go down dirt roads), please let me know.

By Carole on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 07:37 pm:

Speaking of Darryl Oinas (sp), I hope your surgery went well. Looking forward to an update from you in the near future.

By Ms. Quilt/LP on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:29 pm:

Do any of you frequent the casinos up there? I understand there are a few up around Baraga?

By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:30 pm:

I start out gettin' on the ol' webpage and click to Pasty.com. Being "out here" in West TX you have to have back up just in case things don't go your way (an' bein' a Yankee out here--even if it's been 22 years--they don't think you're anything but a Yankee). I miss both Lakes, because we have none here. I can almost smell the lake air and it is fresh. I do miss the people too, so the stories shared here, and the opinions too, make me know that my feet may be down south, but I know where my heart is.

By Mary Lou on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 08:39 pm:

missing'Yooperville...It sure does count we are proud Yoopers here in Escanaba......I grew up in Lake Linden and have lived here for 40 years....and I LOVE both places. Escanaba is a lovely city right on Lake Michigan.....the economy is good and it looks like we are going to be a Deep Port City, which will make it even better. Our major employers are Mead and EMP..(started by two Copper Country fellows) We have 6 golf courses and a beautiful marina and a beach front park (with a beautiful lighthouse) and great fishing on Bay de Noc. No black flys and not as much snow as the Copper Country..(average is 50 inches). Hardly no crime. We have a college..a super Walmart..an airport (only mid-west)..we are l hour from Iron Mountain. Marquette, Menominee and two hours to Green Bay & the Packers...a huge Casino with big name shows and The UP State Fair each August....and we are 180 miles to the wonderful Copper Country and Lake Superior.....the best of two wonderful worlds!!

By Meggie, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:34 pm:

AS shown here in these messages, it is hard to transplant a Yooper.

By Meggie, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:41 pm:

H from Oklahoma, You will NOT get snowed in on this trip! lol

By Troll Diva, Ferndale on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:49 pm:

For all you TROLLS out there! If you didnt already know Toivo & Eino's Pasty Sauce is now available at Meijers! I got mine tonight. It is by the ketchup.

By Yooper at Heart on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:52 pm:

Mary Lou, I completely agree. Escanaba is truly a delightful city for all the reasons you listed. The years I lived there were quite pleasant and enjoyable. It is definitely a great place to live. I agree that people of Esky are genuine Yoopers! Ludington Park and Lakeshore Drive are so beautiful. And the layout of the city is one of the best I've ever seen anywhere. The people are so warm and friendly. The delicious meals at the Stonehouse Restaurant are among the best I've ever had in my life bar none. Some day when I retire, I wouldn't mind moving back there if I'm not able to go back home to the Copper Country where I was born and raised.

By Kim near Lansing on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:55 pm:

Good old Meijer's, they sell Bessenger Pickles too...

By Meggie, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:55 pm:

Living along Lake Superior lake shore here in the U.P., just love waking up and going for that refreshing early (7a.m.) dip in the cool, clear water, sometimes with the loons. True energy booster for the day. And then a soothing, relaxing dip at the end of the day. Wish you all could do it, too. Listening to the waves at night, feels like I'm floating over them as I fall asleep. Yes, that is a great picture of the Manitou lighthouse. I remember going to the island when it was manned. Those coast guard men were always happy to receive visitors.

By One Finn to Another on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 09:58 pm:

Have been out there by boat many a time, and will be again the first week of August, can't wait!

By Beemer, the crossing on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:12 pm:

Wal, no Quaistion!! A fine sight indeed. Indeed some skullduggery occurred here a piece back, sure enough, some tom-foolery...

By Yooper-To-Be in 2005, Saginaw, MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:12 pm:

To Kathy in Fowler:
Take the circle tour on bike - From Copper Harbor down Hwy 41 to the Eagle Harbor Cutoff Road to Hwy 26 in Eagle Harbor back to Copper Harbor. You'll get the tunnel of trees on 41 and the Superior views on 26 with a beautiful road in between!

By Tom, Marquette on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:27 pm:

Beemer, What kind of tom-foolery?

By mckenneyp, GR MI on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 10:39 pm:

Misplaced Michigander - You got it right!

Thanks to all the people that make this site tick!

This is the first place I visit in the morning, although I havn't been a huge posted until latley. Guess I'm just overly excited about going on vacation this year. Although some of you might remember 2 winters ago I had a picture in the Spot light from the UP 200! Have a great night and can't wait to see what Tommarow brings on Paty.com!!

By SuzyQ/Mn on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:04 pm:

Hello all!
Getting anxious for my next trip to C.C. Does anyone know when the pig roast is taking place in Eagle Harbor?

By ert, GA on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:04 pm:

There's some kind of new light interfering w/ nighttime viewing of the bridge. :(

By Charlie at Pasty Central on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:28 pm:

When the power failed in Hancock yesterday, the camera flash on the bridge cam turned on, which hinders the nightime view. Should be back to normal by tomorrow night.

We were up in Copper Harbor today, installing another webcam, this one at the Harbor Haus. The trip back to Eagle River was by US-41, the tunnel of trees mentioned above. What a perfect day for cruisin' the Keweenaw.

Thanks for the encouragement today for our staff. It takes a lot of effort by the whole team to keep up this daily feature. And thanks to the hundreds of photographers who have become a part of this site by providing so many excellent pictures. I could spend hours in the Guest Gallery watching slide shows, but we've got to sleep sometime.

By Ken and Mimi from da UP on Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 11:51 pm:

Marsha/Aura,Genesee, The Aura Jamboree was very nice as usual. The weather was beautimous! They have ceiling fans in the hall and over the stage now. Super nice. We missed the bean 'pot' being there. LOTS of people and LOTS of music. Where was the reunion? This darn 'puter is being very finicky lately, have a hard time to get on the 'net. It does Outlook Express all right so I can get my e-mail. Kilpela and Friends will be playing at the new Pavilion in Covington on Tues. Aug. 10, 7 -11 pm and on Thursday aft. at the Marquette County Fair, 1 pm, 3 pm, and 5 pm. See youse guys there!
Fran, GA, have you ever been to Aura for the Jamboree?

By JLK, Olympia, WA on Friday, July 23, 2004 - 12:53 am:

I so envy all of you getting to go back to the UP for a vacation. I was going to drive back this month-but 32 hours is just too long. Somehow instead I got conned into taking 6 kids to Disney Land. Wish me luck. If the drive doesn't kill me those rides surely will. Rats I wish I was heading East instead of South :(

By Lynda in MI on Friday, July 23, 2004 - 02:14 am:

Mary Lou In Escanaba,
I told my Dad (Leonard) I would say Hello for him when I "saw" you here. He said you spoke at the Lake Linden Reunion Dance. I went for a while also. We are trying to get him 100% computer crazed--he does not have email yet. I would gladly pass along any correspondences.

By smn/Clearwater, FL on Friday, July 23, 2004 - 06:06 am:

Charlie at Pasty Central, thank you for the wonderful pictures and entertainment. It's almost as though we were up there joining in all the fun. I was wondering, how many are on your staff maintaining the cams, sites, and editing. You all do an excellent job! Kuddos!

By Mary Lou on Friday, July 23, 2004 - 06:24 am:

Lynda in Mi...Good Morning from Escanaba....and thank you for the greeting from your Dad, Leonard,......it was so good to reconnect with all my friends from LLHHS...at the reunion dance....someone told me there were 600 at the dance so it was a huge success!!... Your dad's aunts (your great-aunts) lived in the large Victorian house across the street from my parent's home when I was growing up in Lake Linden on Front Street....they were lovely ladies. I think that had been his Grandfather's house....I also saw your dad at 8am Mass at St Joseph's...give him my regards..and tell him he'll love being "computer crazed"....
