Good morning!

If anyone is in the Lansing Michigan area over Labor Day weekend, the MSU Pavilion will be home to Llamafest on Sat & Sun. Last year this was the 2nd largest lama (llamas & alpacas) show in the US. Admission is free to this beautiful facility and there are many shows, informational activities, vendors and hundreds of wonderful animals from all over the country.
Have a wonderful day and concerned thoughts to those in Katrina's path.

Good morning everyone :) I had a wonderful time at the lake yesterday. Bruce, I know you will love this one. We took Da Abbi (the doggie we had rescued a few years ago), with us. A woman who was at the beach, came over to visit with Da Abbi. We got to talking, and the woman is what she terms a 'foster parent for dogs flunky'. Her and her hubby temporarily take in dogs that have been rescued by the Humane Society...until permanent homes can be found for the dogs. So far, her and her hubby have ended up adopting all three of the 'foster' doggies sent their way.

She also told me how she also volunteers for dog transports from city to city...and state to state, for the Humane Society. Her latest failure at fostering...and latest addition to her family...was a chocolate lab that she had transported from Ohio. It is so great to know that there are wonderful people, like this woman, who are so dedicated to our four legged friends. :-)

Just checking if I can post. I repeatedly tried on the other page and could not get it to work.

From my uncle and aunt, Ted and Marge Donahue, in Miami Shores: "We were very fortunate in Katrina. Lots of wind gusts & rain squalls. The biggest nuisance was no electricity from Thurs Pm until Noon Monday. We have quite a few trees & big branches down. Otherwise, it was sort of like camping out, with the Coleman lantern & wide open windows. We discovered a restaurant called Schnitzel Haus. They have real German food, great beer selection & sprechen sie Deutsche."

We were in the UP recently and bought some Keweenaw Kitchen jams. They are really good. Does anyone know who may sell them by mail order?

Oh,the good ole Hiawatha Drive Inn!! Spent alot of Buck nites there. Eli Mattson used to take a load of us Dollar Bay kids in his huge truck. Sure was fun.That was in the 50's. Spent plenty of nights at the Lakes Drive Inn also.

Not much left of the two old Houghton County drive-ins..

By Douglas Boyd (Dojoboyd) on Monday, August 29, 2005 - 08:17 pm:

Am looking for a David Sutinen who frequently checks this site. He used to live in Houghton, Michigan. Then he moved to Flint, and I lost track of him after he joined the Army. We were good friends/neighbors in Flint. I believe he now lives in Huntsville, Alabama.

By Cindy Lee Maki (Cindylee) on Monday, August 29, 2005 - 08:53 pm:

Hey Douglas, I don't know of a Dave Sutinen but I do know a Dwight. If I find out more I'll let you know okay!!! What year are you talking about?

Interesting final picture of the day on Sharon's webcam.

By Keith in Kansas (Keithinks) on Monday, August 29, 2005 - 09:40 pm:

Blast from the past...definitely! Who else remembers "buck night"?

By tom ghering (Tomgheringtcmi) on Monday, August 29, 2005 - 09:46 pm:

I well remember "dollar a carload"....we sure loaded down the cars....Do you suppose our southern States will be offerd foreign aid after all the storm damage ?......don't hold your breath.

By Danbury (Danbury) on Tuesday, August 30, 2005 - 02:26 am:

Hi Tom, what kind of help would you like to see that you can't provide yourself faster and more efficiently?

Most countries that receive foreign help do more or less desperately need it. Last I read about Katrina, the southern US was not really among them.

By Mary Schei (Maryschei) on Tuesday, August 30, 2005 - 01:38 pm:

To Danbury,

Have you been to that part of the country? I have and there are places where you wonder if you're still in this country. In a lot of those places, the population is so poor that they desperately needed help even before the devastation Katrina left behind. They won't have either medical or homeowner's insurance to help them rebuild. They definitely need all the help we or anyone else can give them.

By Danbury (Danbury) on Tuesday, August 30, 2005 - 05:27 pm:

What could any other country provide the US couldn't provide by itself?

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Tuesday, August 30, 2005 - 05:32 pm:

That was my concern too in regards to where Katrina hit. These people were so poor, that they could not afford to evacuate, when Katrina was barreling down on them.
Danbury, Mississippi and Alabama have some of the worse poverty in the US...while the US pumps millions of dollars in aid to other countries who are better off then the residents of these states.
Mississippi and Alabama...the states where children go to bed hungry at night.

By Danbury (Danbury) on Friday, September 2, 2005 - 02:52 am:

Considering the latest news, I might change my mind. German government acted accordingly.
