About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

“Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls.” But they are unable to get us out of the financial mess we are in right now?

I tried to stay awake for the debate last night and I did make it to 10 p.m. which for me is pretty good considering my internal clock says “when it is dark you must sleep”. It had been dark since about 8:24. Then first thing this a.m. I checked to see if a deal on the “bail out” (or whatever we’re calling it now) had happened by midnight. NOW, they hope to have it done by Sunday. I don’t even know if poor old John McCain flew back to Washington after the debate or not.

I think the two presidential candidates should suspend their campaigning, take the money that they were going to use between now and the election and put it towards the financial crisis. Which ever one of them throws their money at this problem first is the one to vote for. And maybe get Donald Trump and Bill Gates to kick in a few bucks, just because they are good guys and have more money than God. And the guys and gals that are trying to make this decision could kick in a year’s salary as should the “fat cats” on Wall Street….then see how much we still need.

I’m sick of it….


  1. Cathy, I have the same internal clock as you but worked hard to watch the debate. I did watch to the end hoping to hear about the bailout. It never happened. Both candidates did a nice 'two-step' when asked about the bailout. They really avoided being specific about it.
