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!

(I'm using my old computer for the next ??? days so I won't be visiting other blogs or be online as much. My old computer is my life line for reservations and that is all I try to use it for...the notbook had to take a trip to the Soo; something is not quite right with the connection status and needs to be "seen to")

This post is a "two-fer".

The first post is something we saw on the PBS (PUBLIC BROADCASTING SYSTEM).

The 2nd post is also PBS, but in this case it stands for POLITICAL BULL SH--!

Once in a while we watch the PBS station. There was a show on it last night basically all about chickens; it ranged from this older gal who performed mouth to beak resuscitation and brought a chicken back from the brink, to another gal who had this white rooster who was her pet of 7 years. She took it swimming (she held on to it), gave it baths, let it watch TV, put a birdie diaper on it. THEN there is THIS story about Mike the headless chicken. I had never heard this before. I HAVE seen chickens running around with their heads cut off, but this tops all of that.


Now, for the other PBS story....


If you just simply do a search on "reading terrorists Miranda" you will come up with ALL kinds of stories. This is what our President has ordered to be done now. Does this mean we have to provide them an attorney? Isn't that part of the Miranda right?

Then there is also this story (you may have to click on the specific article to read about it)


This "stuff" really gets my goat....

    I'm in the military and follow your site. The thing with reading terrorists their "rights" is about the last thing that the military or FBI should be concerned about. Don't get me started.

    Keep up the good work. I've read you for years. Started reading your trail reports before I shipped to Iraq. That is how I found you. I'm still a fan!

    Home for me is the great state of Illinois and I use to snowmobile in the Newberry area.

  2. Amonymous,
    thank you for your service to your country. Hopefully you will be home in time for snowmobiling this winter!

    God Bless...
