How many turkeys trotted across the Pasty Cam on this day in 2005?

Nice recovery, JH. Must watch for those trick questions.

Congratulations to Dan and Michelle(Loukus) Axford of Bootjack on the birth of their triplet boys last evening in Marshfield.

Good morning! I love that picture of the bridge. There is an absolutely gorgeous one of it in Copper World that I want in the worst way.

By Grace M Wetton (Gmw) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 08:29 am:

Good morning everyone! 26 degrees and cloudy here in Houghton. No snow on the ground. Forecast was for 2-4 inches of the stuff but it didn't come and that's fine with me.

By Snowman (Snowman) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 09:00 am:

Good job JH!

By JH (Thumbgardener) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 09:10 am:

Thanks RD and Snowman. I actually discovered my mistake and posted the correct answer before I noticed Charlie's Gotcha! We gotta watch Charlie. He likes to throw those tricky questions in there. :-)

Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 10:56 am:

I was surprised when I opened the blinds this morning and there was SNOW on the ground and coming down here in Lansing. I was not ready for that.

We are having a taste of Winter here in TN. also.
Russ E. On the main page the right side of picture second Lady up from the bottom reminds me of your Mother. I first noticed her before you click on the Big Picture, and thought oh my that's Ruthy.

Somehow I get the feeling that the boy in the bottom of the picture finished his Fudgsicle first. That technique is called; "Saving some for later".

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 08:23 pm:

Dave H. Yeh you'r right does kinda look like her, rest her soul, been over 2 years since she's gone.

BTW Jim, Nancy and family left yesterday in a convoy for a permanent life in Northern MI (Kalkaska county NLP) He lost his job down here so they are going to "rough it" at their cabin in the great north woods! Wish them luck!

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 08:54 pm:

I wish any family luck when a job is lost. I was just reading about the many stores that are closing many of their doors that customers are not shopping in. I don't know what field of job's are short of people. Instead of bailing out the Auto Industry which will cost a trillion dollars, I figure it would be cheaper, like only a third of a trillion, if they just give us all a million each over the age of 18 here in the good ole USA. It is just a WAG, I really didn't do the math, but I think I am in the ballpark. Wow that would really boost the economy, eh?

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 10:30 pm:

FYI, from the Census 2000 Profile:
Total US population: 281,421,906 (100%)
US Population age 18 and over: 209,128,094 (74.3%)

Now let's see:

209,128,094 X $1,000,000 = $209,128,094,000,000

(Just "pocket change" over $209 Trillion!)

Or to put it another way, divide that $1 trillion by the over-18 population:

$1,000,000,000,000 / 209,128,094 = $4,781.75

So each of 'em will get a mere $ 4,781.75 …

… which they can take right to their dealer and buy a Deetroit autymobile!
(Ooops maybe not!)

David Soumis (Davesou) on Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 11:35 pm:

great pic :)
I feel warmer already.

jobs..the healthcare industry, and it is an industry, and a very profitable one, at least right now, needs workers very badly. The field I'm in will be growing by 20% over the next 10 years. I would advise anyone that is out of work and can get training to get into healthcare...this goes for kids getting out of school looking for a career as well.

Problem I see, as more and more people get laid off, they lose their insurance, which directly affects the healthcare industry, as does the increase in charitable services, and medicare use.
Th hospitals lose a lot of revenue, thus hiring is slowed, and layoffs happen, or at least cut of hours, and raises go away, etc.
The entire economy is so intertwined, no one is immune, other than those rich cats that already have theirs.

As GW would say "bring it on "
I'll take a million of that bailout.
