Past-E-Mail: July 1999
By Sally Nelson, Littleton on Saturday, July 31, 1999 - 08:22 pm:
Now is your chance pasty lovers to spread the word how GREAT the Pasty Central pastys are. In the Rocky Mountain News today there is an article by an AP writer by the name of Barbara E. Martinez about a New York Times writer William Grimes who blasts the pasty in a 7/21 story "I understand it's dear to their hearts, but they need to make a better pasty,"...awful, bland, football-shaped objects that were nearly inedible." A baker in Cornwall burned an American flag to protest William Grimes. It goes on to say more about his article and the national advertising campaign being launched to defend the traditional Cornish treat. The British are pretty serious about this I would say. He obviously has never had a pasty from the U.P. or Pasty Central. TOO BAD!!! His lose and our gain.Maybe someone out there who is more computer savvy can send him some information on OUR beloved pasties. Of course it would taste even better if he ate it in the Copper Country. Thanks to all those wonderful pasty makers in the U.P.

Hi! Wow! You really out did yourself this week on the pasty cam! What wonderful beautiful pictures!Of course beautiful pictures wouldn't be too hard to find up there...........but thanks again! Hey, have you seen my grandpa (Jack Foster)

I received my shipment on Thursday, I want to thank you for the wonderful service you provide for the rest of the world to enjoy delicious Calumet pasties. Growing up every summer in Bootjack I can remember my Grandmother slaving over a hot stove in the summer heat to make no less than thirty of these pasty just to feed everyone in our clan. Keep up the hard work and please give everyone involved with the making of the pasties a great big thank you.

Hi I live in Hubbell, I was wondering if you could put a picture of the fire department sign at night when it is all lit up. I am on vacation in Washington and would love to show my family because I love when I drive by it at night!

Are there any dragstrips in the U.P? I'm a drag racing fan. How about a dirt oval track with sprint cars? A nighttime shot under the lights would be even better! Small, local racetracks are always so much more fun than the big high dollar nascar/nhra/etc.
By Ken from Florida on Tuesday, July 27, 1999 - 09:32 am:
Notify us whenever you make changes. My wife is a yooper living here in the central part of Florida. I shouldn't have brought her to see your web site. She is now homesick and I don't want to drive over 2000 miles just yet.

How excited I was to see the Isle Royale Queen II on Sunday 7/25 Pasty Cam! I've only ridden her on a moonlight cruise, but my daughter, Dad, and sister have taken her to Isle Royale, although it was a long time ago. One of my favorite views of Copper Harbor is of the Isle Royale Queen, Porter Island in the background, and the opening between the island and the mainland where you can see ore carriers pass on their way to/from Duluth. This is a wonderful website, and I can hardly wait each day to see the newest picture on the Pasty Cam!
By Karen Trucks-Wisconsin on Sunday, July 25, 1999 - 10:57 am:
I received my pasties last week and just loved them! Thanks for the memories.
By JoAnne Stefanac on Thursday, July 22, 1999 - 07:07 pm:
Gotta say....I LOVE this page. I come back here every day to check out the lastest PastyCam pictures. Dave and I are coming up to Lake Linden at the beginning of August for a visit -- can't wait! Hope you have some good weather in store for us when we get there. See ya' soon!
Our pasties were delivered here on Wednesday. They came in perfect condition and we were impressed. My 86 yr old mother moved from Iron Mountain, Michigan down here and missed them. I came from Florence, Ws. and I miss them also. I only have one question: can I order them without rutabaga??
By Liz, Livonia,MI on Thursday, July 22, 1999 - 09:22 am:
Could you tell me just where exactly Montreal Falls is? I've never heard of it and I think I'll have to check it out when I get up there. Let's see.... eight days and counting!
By John on Wednesday, July 21, 1999 - 03:33 pm:
I'm not sure it's "kosher" to use a ROAD map in the air. Aviation maps look very different--giving locations of airports, transmitter stations, broadcast antenae, etc. Better not let the FAA see that picture, or there'll be an investigation! :)

An e-mail I sent to email@example.com was returned with the following note:
By Wendy Pluta Illinois on Tuesday, July 20, 1999 - 04:11 pm:
Good Afternoon! My family & I just returned from a 3 week stay out in Bootjack. I have to admit, the weather was the worst we've seen in a LONG time. We still had a terrific time though. We truly LOVE this website. Although we spend 6 weeks out of the year in Bootjack, it's nice to keep in touch with the cam pictures! My father was from Bootjack & my mother from Lake Linden. Even though I was born in IL. I will always consider the Copper Country my real home. Keep up the great work!!!!
By The Browns from downstate on Monday, July 19, 1999 - 11:01 pm:
We have ordered your very fine pasties a couple of times now. We very much enjoy them.
By Larry in Indiana on Monday, July 19, 1999 - 10:29 am:
Thank you for the bridgecam!! Between that and my regular visits to pastycam I can survive the hot,humid Indiana summers for 5 more years. When my children are done with school we WILL return to the UP! Until then my pasty deliveries, and Hilltop rolls will get me through, combined with an annual fall color trip. The only advantage of July in Indiana is the sweet corn is ready!!!! Got to go!
By R.E. Bates, adopted Yooper on Sunday, July 18, 1999 - 11:35 pm:
I have a couple sites I would like to nominate for the Golden Pasty Award. They are two of the finest home-cooked type restraunts in the area. The first is the Superior View in Freda,not only for its fine home-cooking,but also for its historical value. It was the Depot & headquarters for the Copper Range RR during the boomdays,& still has the Company safe inside. There is also a great view,as well as some souveneers. When going out there make sure to drive the Covered Road & see the Steel Dam at Redridge. Give yourself an afternoon to take in all the sights. My other nominee is Lindells Restraunt & Ice Cream Parlor in downtown Lake Linden. Also known for its great food & ice cream treats,it is a museum of sorts,& also sells some nice "goodies" besides the food. Its another place you can have a nice meal & walk around & take in the history of the town,while you are at it, stop by the Houghton County Museum, one of the last buildings left intact of the once vast C&H Copper facilities in the town.

By Pamela C. Washington state on Friday, July 16, 1999 - 06:15 pm:
Today is my birthday and I am enjoying your pasties immensely. My mother sent me a box as a surprise. They are obviously made and shipped with great care. Thank you.
By K. J. from Virginia on Friday, July 16, 1999 - 05:10 pm:
I just heard about Pastys today. I would like to know what kind of meat is used in them. Would appreciate this information.

Have you seen the Bridgefest photos at www.cityofhancock.com? We're featuring City of Hancock in an encore appearance this week in the Golden Pasty Hall of Fame. Truly among the Best of the U.P.!
By Lisa from Texas on Tuesday, July 13, 1999 - 10:53 pm:
My pasties came today! Just like my grandmother used to make! Although I am unable to see her often, I always looked forward to having a pasty when I was able to see her. Unfortunately, due to her age and health, she hasn't been able to make them in years. I'm so happy to have found you and have told my dad about you. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
By John L. Hoh, Jr. on Tuesday, July 13, 1999 - 11:55 am:
Packers? Lions? Broncos? Come on! The next Super Bowl victor will come out of Southern Florida. Dan Marino will make it three consecutive SB victories by a QB from the class of, what, '82? Go Dolphins! Swim with a Porpoise!
By Damon on Tuesday, July 13, 1999 - 11:01 am:
I have feet like pasties, and so have great difficulty getting shoes. I asked my local baker (in England), if he could bake me a pair, but he said he only does loafers, and I prefer chelsea boots. Can you help.
By Terry D. Bush on Tuesday, July 13, 1999 - 10:00 am:
Beautiful picture of the Net River. Where exactly is the Net River located?
By Jan Medved-Wisconsin on Monday, July 12, 1999 - 09:58 pm:
Hi, I would like to see a picture of the Swedetown water tower, the big red one.
By Sally Hocking Nelson, Littleton CO on Monday, July 12, 1999 - 09:00 pm:
Sorry folks, the BRONCOS are the BEST!!! We love John Elway and will miss him a bunch. Maybe it will be the PACK this year after all.(groannnn)
By Carole Krueger on Monday, July 12, 1999 - 06:36 pm:
Just viewed the new Bridge Cam and it is great, almost as good as being there. Hope to be able to see a freighter or the Isle Royal Ranger going under.
By Bonnie Foss WI on Monday, July 12, 1999 - 12:03 pm:
I am a daily reader, when I'm home. Noticed your PastyCam picture of the Wisconsin Welcome sign and your greetings. Thanks for the greetings! About rooting for the Lions or the Packers: there is no choice - the Packers are going to be GOOD this year. Will be visiting the UP next month. Can't wait!
By Roger in LOWER Michigan on Sunday, July 11, 1999 - 11:35 pm:
My wife grew up in the U.P. (Hancock) I brought her down here when we married 20 years ago. I went to Michigan Tech. Now our oldest son is attending (Michigan Tech) also. We spend alot of time in the U.P. We love it up there. Your web cam is very interesting also.
By Mikael Moore, Florida on Saturday, July 10, 1999 - 03:47 pm:
I'd like to find out if you have a recipe for pasty soup. my best friend David has for many years told me stories of how from the time he can remember his mother every sunday morning got up very early and put on a huge pot of pasty soup. She would spend the entire day in the kitchen cooking and not let anyone see what she was doing and she never shared her recipe with the family. Sadly she died when David was 14 and he only remembers bits and pieces of the recipe.
Just a note to let you know that the pasties arrived on Wednesday at approx. 1:30 PM. Honolulu time. Thank you for such great service I will be sure to pass this information along to my friends. Again Thank you.
By Jackie from Nevada on Friday, July 9, 1999 - 07:17 am:
I just noticed that your last couple of days on the Pasty Cam are listed June instead of July. Might want to correct that. J I just love checking in every day and seeing the new picture for the day. It makes me want to come back home. I will be moving back there from Las vegas in a year and a half, but for now I can go there through Pasty Cam. J Just wanted to let you know about the date error. Thanks.
By Annie from Texas on Thursday, July 8, 1999 - 10:12 pm:
I love your pasty site! I'm from Michigan, but currently living in Texas. There are no pastys down here! I'll be sure to order some from you guys real soon.

By Jeanie, visitor on Wednesday, July 7, 1999 - 09:09 am:
I am enjoying this site. After leaving there on Wednesday of this past week how nice it is to check in every day to see what is happening up where my Dad and Mom came from. We stayed at Laurium Manor Inn.
By Joan Eshleman-Velde, Illinois on Tuesday, July 6, 1999 - 12:07 pm:
I was so thrilled to find your website, and since have ordered pastys to be sent to my sister in Tacoma, WA, and my daughter, in Gig Harbor, WA. It's a surprise for them both, and they both LOVE pastys! We've spent many August weeks up in Copper Harbor, since I was a child, and it is one of our familys' favorite places. My Mom and Dad celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary there, at the Keweenaw Lodge, and the flowers were wildflowers my future husband and I picked along the roads. Since my Dad died, we haven't gone up there as much, (l994 was the last time) but it will always have a special place in our hearts.

Thank you for the Copper Aroma Candle from Copperworld. I will enjoy it and think of the U.P. I lived in the U.P. all of my growing up years. It was a great place to grow up. I do miss being able to go and get pastys went ever we want too. Thank you again
By Kyle Cross on Monday, July 5, 1999 - 03:32 pm:
I order pasty's from your site monthly (love the things:) and was wondering what is the nutritional information on a pasty, specifically the calories. Thanks for your time
By Martin L., Michigan on Sunday, July 4, 1999 - 11:36 am:
Just wanted to let you know what I thought as I browsed through your website.

Pasty Cam Request:
By M. Flister, Texas on Friday, July 2, 1999 - 01:26 pm:
Our gift recipient reports that the pasties arrived in Austin, TX on Tuesday, June 29. He says that they are even better than he remembers from our many visits to the UP and various restaurant experiences there. Thank you for your promptness and courteous service. We will tell our friends about these great treats!!
By Peter Chiomenti, Maryland on Friday, July 2, 1999 - 01:23 pm:
Loved those flamingos! They must be the hearty Yooper variety, because I saw them in May when I was there and it looked like they got there ahead of me.
(By the way, hello Jeannie from Maryland. You should visit Michigan's UP it's a great place -- but a loooooong drive from MD.)
By Joy H., Wisconsin on Friday, July 2, 1999 - 10:18 am:
I would love to see Lac La Belle included in the Pasty Cam one day. Also, possibly the Smith Fisheries, although it is a hike. Both places are very dear to my heart as they have been a part of my family's summer vacations all my life (28 years).
By John from Wisconsin on Thursday, July 1, 1999 - 01:21 pm:
Six, beautiful, bouncing pasties arrived yesterday. Money order on way--it shouldn't be bouncing.
By Susan Marks, Minnesota on Thursday, July 1, 1999 - 05:44 pm:
I have heard there are Big Trees up near Copper Harbor. Could they be a future Pasty Cam photo?
By Sue Popma on Thursday, July 1, 1999 - 05:28 pm:
I would like to see the Lighthouse in Copper Harbor. During a sunset would be nice.
