Have gone thru past CAM notes and noticed a posting from Mary-Ecorse that mentioned a family cottage on the Lake. Mary, if you are reading this can you please tell me where the camp is at. Is it anywhere near where the monks are?

If I ordered some Pasties for someone for Christmas, how close can you get to the holiday, (an estimate to lower MI is good), and can you send a card to name the wonderful person that sent such a terrific gift?

Well, this question is a little easier to handle than the Treaty of Paris (see below)... This year Christmas falls on a Tuesday, so the last day we will be scheduling 2-day pasty shipments is Wednesday, December 19, to arrive by Friday the 21st. And yes, we can include a gift greeting.

Our order page is a calendar which enables you to select the day of shipment you desire. Toward the end of next month, we will post the complete holiday schedule.

I finally did it!! I finally ordered pasties from Pasty Central and my package arrived yesterday. I had one for dinner and I must say that it was DELICIOUS!! I didn't even use was too good to put anything on it. I haven't been to the Copper Country since 1999 and that is the longest I have ever been away...not to mention without a pasty. As I ordered 3 pasties, I am considering giving one to my sister, however that decision is not final yet. (some things are just sacred!)

Thank-you Charlie for this Wonderful web-site, which I visit everyday and for the delicious taste of "home". May Peace be with you.

hi i have a couple question for any one who can answer this that reads this i wanted to kno if any one knows alot about history back in the day while getting to the point i wanted to know what country france and spain owned before the treaty of paris so if u have the answer can u please send me an email letting me kno
thank alot

There are two major "Treaties of Paris". One concluded the Seven Years War (1763) and one marked the end of the Revolutionary War. The American War for Independence (177583) was actually a world conflict, involving not only the United States and Great Britain but also France, Spain, and the Netherlands. For more information see The American Revolution Home Page. Then be sure to come back and treat yourself to a pasty.

Thanks to Jim, Sally, and all the others who directed me to some good web sites and motel accommodations in Escanaba! Problem solved.

By Susan Pfeffer, Utah on Thursday, September 20, 2001 - 06:02 pm:

I came upon your site by accident but enjoyed looking around. I have been making pasties for my family for over 30 years. My grandmother, a Callahan, passed the recipie down to me knowing how much I loved them. All of my 7 children are also great fans and have learned to make them also. I just didn't realize there was such an interest in them in other states. Guess I need to get out more.
Maybe one day I can order some from you and can just sit back and enjoy them made by someone else.
Take good care.

Hello, Pasty friends! I'm a Houghton native living below the bridge, and now have a request for some who may have Escanaba connections: Are there any motels in Escanaba, such as a Comfort Inn or Motel 6, Holiday Inn, etc? 'Need to send some people from our office there for business reasons, and can't seem to find a web site that tells about overnight accommodations there. I'd be grateful for any response!

I was at the eye doctor's office on Tues. morning on that sad, sad day, and in the waiting room most of the people looked to be 55 or over and we were feeling so sad for our grandchildren having to grow up in such a scary world and commenting about that when a gentleman seeming to be in his sixties made a comment that said it all. He told us "We had World War II".......nothing more had to be said. I thought about it later and realized it was quite a strong statement about Americans. We got through that horrific war and we can get through this tragedy also. Some may say that this hits closer to home, but those who went through the early 40's know how very close that war hit home, too. My heart goes out to all those affected by this tragedy and I don't mean to diminish your pain by this comment of the past. May God Bless America!

I have been searching the internet on all of the information from this past week. The longer I searched the more depressed I became. Then, I discovered the webcam site. There I saw the bridge connecting Houghton and Hancock! What a lift it brought to my heart. Born in Munising and with family in Misery Bay and Escanaba areas; and a host of friends throughout the Copper Country area; it is a lift in what is otherwise a bleak week! Thank you Pasty Central!!!! I will be adding this site to my favorites and will visit more often!

A sad day for America yesterday. A moment of silence for the victims, a prayer for the survivors and rescue workers.

Hello all!
I am again looking for some info. Does anyone know a place on the web which lists all of the Chamber of Commerces (add. and phone numbers) in the UP of Michigan? If so, can you please email me the site? I tried searching all over but came up empty handed.
Best wishes,
Renee in IL

HI NOT REAL IMPORTANT BUT... while looking for the shoebox photo of White City 7/22 I could not find it by looking for it in the archives (I thought I was really losing it) IT TURNS OUT that in the archives list there is another photo in the master list.(click it and you get the White City photo) I am wondering what is that photo it seems to be a house with a sign in front?? Thanks if you can help... Actually thank you regardless for my daily dose of the Keweenaw.


Thanks, Brad, for bringing the error to our attention. Seems we inadvertantly plugged the JUNE 22 photo into the July 22 slot. The former picture is Garnet House Bed and Breakfast in Kearsarge, and the correct one was our Shoebox Memory featured on July 22.

Thanks to all who take the time to

It's the 5th of September and we're happy to say the fair is finished for another year. We have a lot of good memories and the ending is a little bittersweet. Soon all the equipment will be home again until next year. This year's MN State Fair broke all records for attendance with almost 1 3/4 million attending. We want to thank everyone who visited us. There were many friends. Glad you liked Grandma's/Pasty Central's offerings. The Vernors was a huge success. We'll do that again for sure. The new breakfast pasty went over very well. See you all next year. Thanks Charlie, John and Mike and everyone else who backed us up. We love you all. Don't forget you can order the yummy Pasty Central products through us by calling 612-866-3706. Our office is located in Bloomington near the Mall of America. See you soon.
