Morning everybody! Thank goodness there's NO snow here this year.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX (Margaret) on Sunday, April 23, 2006 - 09:00 am:

We had rain last night--first in 8 months. Could of used some UP snow this year.

A beautiful sunny morning. My favorite a.m. joy, sipping coffee while soaking up the sun on the front porch glider. The birds' riotous serenades please my ears and the newly green laces of the woods across the road help to calm the soul. A grand Sunday to all the yoopers of the world.

Deb S. yesterday you mentioned how you would like to see the documentary on The History Channel of the Edmund Fitzgerald, you can go to The History Channel website and purchase the show on DVD through their online store for about $25.00.

Ms Katie, You could be a poet and probably don't even realize it. You have a wonderful way of describing things. Brought me right to you.

Janie, Thanks. I'll be looking into that!

By Ms. Katie (Mskatie) on Sunday, April 23, 2006 - 01:46 pm:

Deb S. how nice of you. Hang on a little. The pineapple upside down cake is cooling now. Bring your coffee or tea and sit with me. I'll make room on the glider for you.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, April 23, 2006 - 01:49 pm:

Ms. Katie, thanks for the invite. Be right over! I have to say though, I prefer my pineapple uncooked and on top of the cake covered with Cool Whip! A REALLY big downfall for me. But the glider sounds good and you can tell me some poems.

MSN today has a list of the Top 10 Destinations for Summer. The UP is # 10. Sure hope there aren't too many people who head up there, because I want it still pristine when I manage to get up there, hopefully w/n the next 2 or 3 years!

By Erica - Florida Keys (Erica) on Sunday, April 23, 2006 - 02:55 pm:

40 years ago I hoped the Florida Keys would stay just as they were,beautiful and clean and uncrowded.
I still love the Keys and the weather and the ocean but we are getting a lot more visitors and residents every year.Like Eugenia,I hope the UP stays the way it is...even when I realize that isn't always possible.

With the price of gas the way it is, I suspect no one has to worry
that the Copper Cpountry will be over-run with tourists this
year and well into the future. For the tourist industry that is
nothing to cheer about, of course. (And am I mistaken in
thinking that tourism is pretty important to a lot of good folks
up there?) Down here in corn and bean country we are finding a
silver lining in the price of gas with a nice new gasohol plant
being built, but maybe not much corn produced in the Copper

Here is part of article:
10. Upper Peninsula, Michigan
If city-living gets too hot, pack up some marshmallows, hot dogs and camping gear and head to the refreshing Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where majestic wildlife, unspoiled rivers, waterfalls and dense forests abound. Blessed with some 1700 miles of shoreline along three of the Great Lakes—Superior, Michigan and Huron—it should come as no surprise that fishing, canoeing, and camping are prime activities here, with moose, bears, and beavers as common companions. The region's strong Native American and French Canadian heritage are experienced everywhere as well; enclaves with names like Sault Ste-Marie and bridges like the Mackinac hearken back to the days of the earliest settlers. You'll probably feel like one of North America's earliest explorers yourself as you paddle the waterways here and set up camp in the woods.

'Course, I don't see anything mentioned about our skeeters or blackflies. Now everyone will know why we live here ;)
I guess we should be honored to be included amongst the other nine spots!
