The Big City. Well, at least as big as it gets in this neck of the woods. Overlooking Houghton from Quincy Hill, eight years ago on the Pasty Cam.

Good Morning
First Post

By Paul Oesterle (Paulwebbtroll) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 05:25 am:

Good morning!! Congratulations on the Early Bird Lowell!

By Lowell La Fave (Lowell) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 05:28 am:

Just happened to wake up and thought just maybe I could beat the rest of them to being first.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 05:32 am:

My thought exacty, every morning, Lowell :o)

By Lowell La Fave (Lowell) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 05:47 am:

Charlie: Some Mornings I'm up when you sign on and then I get first but then tonight I just Happened to be able to sleep for a change. Woke up and fired this thing up to see who had got the BIRD. Seen your weather report last night, looked like you had some warm weather there. Ours has been also 70 and in the high 60's. But see your in for a change. What kind of winds did you have up on the tip of the peninsula? Seen it got quite windy in places.

By Lowell La Fave (Lowell) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 06:00 am:

You all have a good Morning. I'm going to go and try to catch a few more z's.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 06:35 am:

Good Morning, Everyone from breezy mid-Michigan.

Congratulations, Lowell, on your Early Bird. Almost, Paul Webbtroll!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 07:02 am:

Good morning everybody! Was really warm here yesterday but very windy. Only supposed to be 44 today. Now that's going to be an eye opener after the last 4 or 5 days.

The picture of Houghton is really nice.

Beautiful picture 8 years ago.

Thanks to all who answered my 'broadband' question yesterday.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 10:00 am:

Was cold yesterday morning and warm today, had to bring the old dead TV to the curb. It is 20 years old and weighed a ton, glad it died before the move.

I think I missed something. What's the big deal about
being first in the morning? Is there a prize? Should I
be setting my alarm clock?

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 12:54 pm:

There is no prize for being first.Being first is the only prize.Lowell,may have gave out a helpful hint in his 5:47 am: post, on how to have better odds for the Bird, if you are in the hunt each morning.

It is still Fall like weather here in the Knoxville area.70*F Alot of color on the trees.

By John Stachler (Zrjohn) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 01:28 pm:

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here, and it seems to be a good spot to get information. I just purchased a house in Mohawk and am looking for someone to do occasional plowing when there is a big storm, or just before we drive up and visit. Does anyone have anyone I could call?



By Lowell La Fave (Lowell) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 02:34 pm:

Musicteacher: Somtimes it helps to be a NIGHT OWL to get the Early Bird. I don't remember how long this has been going on now, but most of the early risers try to get the Bird.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 03:37 pm: don't need a have an Artic Cat! Enjoy that home! :)

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 07:11 pm:

Good luck Paul! That was some funny stuff. Joanie would agree with you about ill-annoy!!!

Has anyone else received the message going around the internet regards Raisins and grapes being highly toxic to dogs? The message was from a Vet Clinic in Ohio and was verified by checked and indeed it is. There were other human foods listed on and several pet links whereas was listed several more.
Chocolate (which we knew about); onions; garlic; Macadamia nuts; Broccoli; Coffee & grounds; potato peelings and green colored potatos; among a few others. Upon talking with a few knowledgeable people in town about all this. Some were aware of many of these things! We sure were not! A few other things came up such as peanuts!(just a handful or more can kill a dog); raw bacon; and even Jelly Beans! I called our Vet today, talked to a staff person and they were very aware of all this except peanuts and Jelly Beans. She explained how research is coming up with more new on this type things all the time compared to the knowledge known just not so long ago. I pointed out quite strongly that "they" including the Vets then ought be informing and communicating this info to the public more quickly and thoroughly! (I personally feel strongly the same regards the "human" medical profession!) Is anyone here knowledgeable on this or can add anything to this? This is very disturbing to us after losing 3 pets last month just in a few weeks time to not 100% certainty as the cause.

Go to the following and the links at the bottom of the page for more on this!

By Grace M Wetton (Gmw) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 09:19 pm:

Russell- the info came from Laurinda Morris DVM from the Danville Vet Clinic in Danville, OH

The raisins and grapes cause Renal failure in dogs. Kidney function, blood pressure goes out of whack, excessive vomiting to start with when dog first gets sick.

By k j (Kathiscc) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 09:29 pm:

If peanuts are a problem, why do vets tell you to hide pills in peanut butter for your dogs? You can buy peanut cookies for them. My dogs eat peanut butter all the time.

By k j (Kathiscc) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 09:33 pm:

Actually, this is what it says about peanut butter.
"When using rat, mouse, snail or slug baits, or ant or roach traps, place the products in areas that are inaccessible to your pet. Some bait contains sweet smelling inert ingredients, such as jelly, peanut butter or sugar that can attract your pets."

By k j (Kathiscc) on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - 09:42 pm:

While some dogs can be allergic to peanuts, as can some humans, personally, if your dogs received shots in the weeks prior, I would suspect those more than some of these foods.
