Three years in a row on this day had something to do with Michigan Tech. Which three years?

Ah, there's beautiful Paco! Love your pet pix, Joyce!;)

Bill - In recent days it looks like the Northgate is being renovated for use as apartments. We'll try to find out more and let you know.

Good morning from the UP!! I finally have a minute to get on here. The weather is awesome for November. Great traveling weather and you don't freeze going out either. Loving it!!!

Thought I saw 2 black bears between the turn to Bruce Crossing and Painesdale on the way UP but didn't turn around to see them. Should have stopped to get a picture.

Got my mom's Christmas stuff out of her attic because we won't be back and it looks festive in here even though she's not turning any lights on yet. It was nice to get that done for her.

Many great pictures today. Loved Sharon Smith's sunset and enjoyed seeing Paco again!! Joyce's stormy skies was beautiful also, with her cat taking a stroll, lol. And it's always nice to see pictures of the bridge and Marquette at night is awesome! Seeing the bicycles reminded me of Ernie in Hubbell. There were quite a few bikes there on our way through. They'll be fixed up and handed out to boys and girls who will put them to good use. Nice.

Hope you all had a great Veteran's weekend. Don't know if there'll be time to get back on, so have a great week.

Good Morning! For those Macintosh computer users, and possibly others, who got their gmail messages so you could see the lists this weekend, but the messages were blocked so that they would not load, I finally found the secret, so I no longer have to go back to FireFox or Safari. To continue, you have to uncheck the box that blocks web advertising. Thank you, Mozilla forums! Boo to Google for their coding changes that hit a lot of people yesterday, with some on Saturday. Talk about Big Brother's watching you!

The Michigan Tech Archival Speaker Series will feature visiting scholar Gunn at 6:00pm on Thursday, November 17 in the East Reading Room of the Van Pelt and Opie Library on the Michigan Tech campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Gunn will speak on the history of tuberculosis in the Upper Great Lakes region, particularly the impact of the disease in Michiganís historic Keweenaw copper mining district. In 1938, the Houghton County tuberculosis sanatorium had a 60% death rateómuch higher than the tuberculosis mortality for Michigan as a whole. This talk will explore the intersections of occupation, geography, and poverty in the incidence of tuberculosis in the Copper Country and the strong efforts of the state and the Houghton-Keweenaw Health District to control the disease.

Dr. Jennifer Gunn is Associate Professor and Director of the Program in the History of Medicine at the University of Minnesota. She earned her Ph.D. in the History and Sociology of Science from the University of Pennsylvania, where her dissertation examined the history of graduate medical education in the United States. Currently researching a book regarding rural health and medicine in the Upper Midwest, 1900-1950, Professor Gunnís interest in mining communities and rural health disparities in an urbanizing society is informed by her experience as a coal miner in Alabama.

Gunnís presentation is supported by a travel grant from the Friends of the Van Pelt Library. Since 1998, the Michigan Tech Archives Travel Grant program has helped scholars advance their research by supporting travel to the manuscript collections at the Archives.

Charlie there was a discussion on John Dee's site and this is what John had to say.

"They are still working on it and look to be pretty close (at least from my observations driving by). Initially I heard they were hoping to be open by sometime in October, but the latest I heard was by the snowmobile season.

I can also say it was confirmed to me that it will be a motel when re-opened."

Great variety of pics.

Deer hunting season starts tomorrow. I can tell. All of the hunting camps have opened and are showing signs of life. Lots of traffic coming through Ontonagon.

On another note, if you don't know Josh and haven't seen his website, you should. He has a lot of UP knowledge.

Temps today in the high 50s, great day to walk the beach. Might be the last one. Snow is predicted for Wednesday.

Almost forgot, if you're having a boring fall, and you're not hunting, try this:
