Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 08:42 am:

Happy Birthday to the PastyCam! Now in its 14th year, we continue our first-of-the-month feature showcasing "Legends of the Pasty Cam" photos from the 2011 Pasty Cam Color Calendar. Joyce Tormala is our featured "Legend" for March, with this Lake Superior shoreline photo of her two exploring companions, strolling along the sands between water and ice. Joyce's photos have become instantly recognizable by Pasty Cam regulars, for her UP North explorations, many including her furry friends, both canine and feline. It's always a pleasure viewing the Upper Peninsula through her lens.

Each and every "Legend" photo showcased in our 2011 calendar is an outstanding sample of the photography that graces our pages each and every day. To get your own copy, so you don't have to wait until the first of each month to see who's next or which photo of theirs we've chosen, head on over to the U.P. Pasty order page, where you can purchase some delicious pasties along with your "Legends of the Pasty Cam" calendar. You can also purchase the 2011 calendar separately. It's so much more than just a calendar, since each month's photo is suitable for framing. And, as always, proceeds from the calendar and pasty sales help support care for the elderly in the U.P.

Now there is a pair of pups who take "fetch" seriously!

14 years already!! Sheesh, time flies when your looking at PastyCam!! I've been visiting almost that long; since the Fall of 2000 in New Mexico, signed up for internet service when I returned to Red Jacket in 2001 (which I still have to this day), and began posting to the daily forums in 2004 in Vegas.

A HUGE round of applause and thank you's to Charlie, Mary, and the rest of the crew for giving us our daily dose of Upper Michigan and keeping us that can't live UP north, for whatever reason, updated on life in the Yoop.

I second that huge round of applause and Happy 14th.
Nice looks like that dog is getting ready to build a log cabin :)

Happy Birthday Pasty Cam. I moved back up here in late 1996, and shortly after that saw the first Pasty Cam. I have been following every day since. It sure does not seem like 14 years tho. Keep up the good work!!

Thanks for this great picture Joyce

Bravo, Charlie & Crew! enriches our lives with a "letter from home" every day. Wherever we roam, we love our U.P. Thank you 14 times over.

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 12:23 pm:

I agree Capt. Paul. Happy 14th Birthday Pasty Cam.
A site that takes me home when I'm not there. I've been following Pasty daily since it began in 1997. Keep up the good work, Charlie, Mary and all, and THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 12:27 pm:

BTW, nice shot, Joyce. Beautiful dogs!

Happy Birthday, Pasty Cam. Charlie, Mary, and everyone else who helps to make my day complete with a visit to this fabulous website, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

By Doug Smith (Smitty) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 01:34 pm:

Something's missing from this picture - Man's best friend, and her dog.

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 01:50 pm:

Happy Birthday, Pasty Cam, Charlie, Mary and all the rest of those who help make this great website.

Happy 14th Birthday Pasty Cam! I was 14 once upon a time too.........

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 02:32 pm:

Happy Birthday, Pasty Cam.

By Dunerat (Dunerat) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 04:04 pm:

Happy Birthday, Pasty Cam. Thank you for so many years of wonderful conversation and stunning imagery.

Happy Birthday, Pasty Cam. What a gift you are to so many.
Thanks and many more.

By Julie Beck (Jstevensbeck) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 07:31 pm:

Happy Birthday Charlie and the Pasty crew. Wow, 14 years so hard to believe it has been that long. Many changes since the first photos of Jack, Mr Ski-Doo Stevens were on Pasty with my daughter, Liisa. So many memories of Jack lie hidden in the Copper Country. I would like to do a life history beginning with his first 7 years living on 5th St. in Calumet.

By Donna (Donna) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 - 09:11 pm:

It's been an awesome 14! Thanks to all...

And I love Joyce's pictures...I wanna be one of her pets in my next life! They got it good!!

By Pat & Glenda (Gormfrog) on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - 06:44 am:

Yeah, 14 years...think we have been "pasty-cammers' for about the whole time. Funny, we used to live in Memphis TN, now here we are in the U.P. Powerful influence we think! Will be a lot easier to check out the treasures and events during the nest 14. THANKS!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - 06:59 am:

Happy Birthday,! Thank you, Charlie, Mary, and all of the staff who work so hard to make this a great experience for all of us!

Am I the only one who reads Mary's comments to mean it's Happy 13th Birthday, and Pasty is now entering its 14th year in existence? I have been puzzled by this since yesterday morning. I was hoping that someone else would say something before me.

By Mike (Upboundeh) on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - 07:24 am:

HAPPY B-DAY! This has been a remarkable site that has really kept those of us that cant be up in the UP all the time very connected to this beautiful land and people...Thank You Pasty Cam!

Harry Birthday.

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - 07:26 am:

Make that "Happy Birthday" Harry had nothing to do with it.

By Theresa Barnes (Flash) on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - 04:05 pm:

Geez Cuz (Mary) I was just 14. I wish no I don't mean that but 35 doesn't sound too bad. Anyway Happy Birthday to you guys at Pasty Cam. I read it Every Day! I miss the U.P. so much. Theresa
