It's a sweet first taste of a Fall day here in the K-Town area, 55 F Sunny, even after the VOL's game left a bitter one.Enjoy your day!

By Therese (Therese) on Sunday, September 16, 2007 - 10:11 am:

Beautiful photo! It is a wonder that I don't remember these exceptional photos from eight years ago when was new. In the eight years since I passed that golden age of 50 when one loses brain cells and memories fade. Thanks for giving me a second chance to enjoy them.

Good Morning from Florida, sunny and hot in the 90s wish I was in the UP to cool off

Top o' the morning all. This is why I'm an avid skywatcher!!! Can anything be better!? Even better than people watching, the endless variety of forms and colors of sky and clouds. How can anyone question the existance of a greater power than we are! Good Sunday to all.

Good Morning, Everyone, from chilly mid-Michigan. It was 37 when I woke up this morning. I don't know if that broke the record low or not, but they were predicting a record low for this morning. It is warming up now, though.

Marianne Here in Grayling we had ice on the hood of the car this morning. Up to48 now. Yesterday, when I asked if you could swim, I was just being a smart alec. After thinking about the aftermath of a bridge failure it dawned on me what would probably be done. The Michigan Guard, or at least theUP group are engineers. When they train here at Camp Grayling they very often build a pontoon bridge across a local lake. That's is what I think they would do between Houghton and Hancock. Amazing how fast they get them built.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, September 16, 2007 - 12:10 pm:

Dickingrayling: I had forgotten about the military's pontoon bridges. That's a great idea! I knew you were being a smart alec, so I played along. I thought it was funny.

I have to admit that part of my reasoning in asking the question was to see what the powers that be had come up with for a plan, if anything. In this day and age, it is something that should have a Plan B, so to speak. :-) It is not something that can just be swept under the rug, because it might never happen.

I guess that's where you might want to follow the government's plan to have at least three days of food (that will keep long term), water, medications, etc, per person and per pet? But I guess we are all supposed to be doing that anyway.

Hooray for the Away team! Michigan Tech beat Northwood 43 to 41 in Midland, thanks to a last second 48-yard field goal by a Freshman who grew up in Houghton! Congratulations to Tyler Cattelino! That was an awesome kick! Way to go!

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, September 16, 2007 - 05:57 pm:

In case anyone was not aware of it, Pasty.NET brings live play-by-play of Michigan Tech sports via Mix93 FM, which you can find streaming during the games on the Pasty.NET home page.

During the Civil war the Union Army built a nice pontoon bridge over the James River in VA in hours! Saw a photo of it last night on PBS Re-run of Ken Burns "Civil War" All while sitting here by our warm woodstove eating home-made Apple pie (from our own apples!) It got real cold last night here in St. Clair county. Checked the garden today and everything still OK! Sure don't want to start already with covering the veggies at night. October is early enough for that.

Amazes me to think that back in the civil war days they already had such things as commercial canned foods, telegraph-- with copper wire!; photography, Hot air ballons; morphine; repeating rifles, steam driven gunboats, submarines!; petroleum etc. etc. Many of the Civil War pics are so similiar to the photos of that era in the Copper Country! Just got my copy of "Atlas Powder/Senter MI" book from Bill Haller! Lots of those type photos! Great reading! I recommend this book highly to anyone with connections or interests in the Copper Country! Thinks Fran for steering me to Bill! Your photos in the book are great also!
And to think I used to Deer hunt with my Uncle Jim back in there around Senter in the 50s.--Never knew it was there, must have walked very nearby the place! And also to think just down the road from my Grandparents house was once a bustling settlement in Woodside along with the blasting powder company complex! There apparently is no remains or signs of it ever being there anymore! I think my cousins house is built right on the old company site!

Silly questions time, Charlie: Can all of us get the FM broadcast through, or is that only available in the UP? And, are you broadcasting both home and away games? Thanks, Marianne

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, September 16, 2007 - 07:10 pm:

I think I just answered at least one of my own questions. I downloaded your link, and it opens in my iTunes Music Store, free.

My second question still stands, though, about whether or not you are broadcasting the away games? Thanks

Yes! Pasty.NET streams both Home and Away games, for the entire world to hear. For a schedule of upcoming broadcasts see the MTU Athletics website.

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Sunday, September 16, 2007 - 07:29 pm:

Beautiful picture! I love looking at the clouds, they give a sense of peace.

I also just finished reading The Senter Story/Atlas Powder book that Mr Bill wrote. Like Russ, I had no idea that Woodside had so much history to it and that that after the explosion a new plant was built in Senter. If anyone is interested in regional history this was good reading. I abslutely loved the pictures from the book.If any of you are interested in the history of the plant it is a good read.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, September 16, 2007 - 11:56 pm:

Thank you for the FM broadcast info. I was not aware of that before.
