Do I get a worm? 'Morning everyone!
First Post

By gw-houghton on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 06:53 am:

Good Morning everyone! 30 degrees, looks like a cool weekend to work outside.

By julie b., MI on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 06:53 am:

Good morning! Winter has staged a return engagement - an April norm in our fair state! With more snow to come before making our way to warmer temps again. Ah Michigan and her moods! What a great state!

By Therese from just below the bridge on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 07:16 am:

A joke to start out this snowy wintry day:

How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

Golden Retriever:
"The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?"

Border Collie:
"Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code."

"You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!"

"Make me."

"Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark."

Laborador Retriever:
"Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!"

German Shepherd:
"I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation."

Jack Russell Terrier:
"I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture."

Old English Sheep Dog:
"Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb!"

Chihuahua: Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

"I see it, there it is, there it is, right there....."

"It isn't moving. Who cares?"

Australian Shepherd:
"First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle....."

By Mary, NWOh on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 07:25 am:

Loved the joke, Therese. I'm not a dog worshipper, but it was hysterical! Have a great day, everyone.

Mornin', I see we're off to a rolling start today. Sorry about winter shaking its head. It is sun shiny here--but will change to rain tomorrow.

By BCT,Mi on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 11:09 am:

There's a tall ship sailing out of Houghton this summer and I can't find the link to what's going on. Can Someone help me?

By Yooper Gal on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 11:30 am:

Great joke, Therese. Good way to start off the day. So funny and a real keeper. Descriptions are right on the mark. Our dog is an Australian Shepherd mix, and yes she would very definitely do that!

By Cindy, St. Clair Shores, MI on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 11:55 am:

I think we are having a late April Fools Joke in the metropolitan Detroit suburbs and north of here. There is a winter storm warning out for 8 - 12 inches of snow from this afternoon through Sunday evening. We just tied the hottest temperature of 83 degrees this past week and now we have a winter storm warning! Michigan weather is surely never boring!

Therese, I loved the doggie definately had me chuckling. Mary, at one time I didn't really care for dogs either...that was until an Ohio police officer gave my daughter and me my companion dog. Her loyalty and dedication is beyond words.

By gw-houghton on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 12:20 pm:

Wonder what ship is sailing out of Houghton this year? Sailboat type? Haven't heard anything about it.

By troll with connections, Mi on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 12:41 pm:

I think the ship may be going to Ontonagon for the Midwest Rondevouz in late July early August. Don't know of any web sites though.

By copper country resident on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 12:57 pm:

A visit from a big ship will be a treat for Ontonagon people! Tourist kind that is.

By ls, nova on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 01:45 pm:

Here is the web site for the National Rendezvous and Living History Foundation. They have some information on the ship, Denis Sullivan, that will be in the Ontonagon Marina in the summer. The group, Pier Wisconsin, owns the schooner but I do not see the trip to Ontonagon on their schedule yet.

By Exiled Cornish in Scotland on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 03:00 pm:

Could you tell me how the pasty came to the UP,I am Cornish myself and it sounds by the recipe that it is very close cousin of the Tattie Oggie as we call it,also remember reading a book about a place in Minnesota which made Cornish Pasties.There is a lot of the Cornish Miners went all over the world for work after our mines started to close maybe that is how it came to be,we say that where-ever there is a hole or mine cousin Jack will be down there.My mother used to keep in touch with some kin from Houghton many years ago in the 1940`s they were called Williamson I believe

By Jack on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 04:04 pm:

The tall ship is coming to Ontonagon the last weekend in July and the first week in August that is where it is docking this summer.
It is the 2005 all school reunion that weekend also, lots of things to do that whole week. You can take a ride on the Tall Ship.
They are also have a Rendezvous of the past that whole week. From an era way back when. It promises to be a fantastic week full of lots of festivities.

By copper country resident on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 04:35 pm:

Thank You for the information, Jack! It will be
helpful for everyone out there planning summertime outings.

By copper country resident on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 04:39 pm:


Put your order in today!
U.P. Pasties, delivered to your door!

Susan in Florida,

The Toronto Festival of Storytelling is a big
deal here. It went onfor ten days this year at
various venues. It is in its 27th year. I usually
have a chance to just catch a few events. This
year I was only able to attend one --Saturday
Night at the Festival. The tellers were from
Brazil, Jamaica, Quebec, India and Ghana and
Ontario with a ballad singer from
Newfoundland thrown into the mix. If you
ever have a chance to hear Regina Machado,
the Brazilian or Jan Blake, born in England but
of Jamaican parentage, take it! Thanks for

By Rice Lake Alison on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 05:31 pm:

I read that MTU is hooking up with that ship to do some studying of the Great Lakes Environment. I am really tempted, but would ruin the trip for everyone as I hung over the side!!

The MICHIPOTEN (Elton Hoyt II) is now on anchor rhode in Bete Grise Bay (5:22 EST). Commissioned in 1952, she's 689'06" and 22,300+ tonnes.

Oops, make that anchor rode ...

By Bob Jewell , Farmington Hills on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 06:25 pm:

There will br a tall ship out of St Igance this summer.

By Rice Lake Alison on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 06:41 pm:

I note from the MTU schedule that the "Denis Sullivan" will be exploring around the Keweenaw for several days in July, with overnight stops either in or by Bete Grise, Manitou Island, and Copper Harbor (July 12th). I think this land lubber will plan on seeing her then!

By NKR Mishawaka IN on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 08:41 pm:

Mr. Bill - Thanks for the shots of The Michipoten. I love seeing ships that are sitting out there in the bay.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 10:20 pm:

More about the tall ship at George Hite's I've enjoyed seeing the tall ships in Bay City in the past. Would love to see one sailing on Superior!

By Susan, Fl on Saturday, April 23, 2005 - 11:20 pm:

Kosk....have heard Jan Blake...just last year. You're right, she's great! Fest sounds wonderful....maybe I'll try and plan a part of a vacation around it's been quite a while since I've spent much time in Toronto...but I sure used to enjoy it! Beautiful city and wonderfully friendly people.

By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 12:13 am:

Does anyone know of an Arnold Jarvey? He may be dead, but was my dad's best friend growing up, which leads me to believe he may have been from Gay. Last I knew, he lived in Ohio.

By FRNash/PHX, AZ on Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 04:54 am:

Mr. Bill
"The MICHIPOTEN (Elton Hoyt II) is now on anchor ... in Bete Grise Bay."

Thanks for the really neat pix, Mr. Bill, but I think you meant the
MICHIPICOTEN. (Tonnes = tons?)

By True Troll on Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 06:29 am:

Good morning!

By Beverly, San Jose on Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 07:00 am:

Some really nice pictures FRNash, of the Michipicoten. You to Mr. Bill.

By gw-houghton on Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 08:10 am:

Good Morning all! Another cool one, 32 degrees,
cloudy, looks like a day to stay inside & take care of indoor projects.
