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!

There seems to be SOME progress in the problems at least 3 of us have been experiencing, but things are
S L O W!

I have done several online speed tests and WB has failed miserably on each one!  One test said that we are running much slower than 97% of the rest of the country! 

So, it was with tongue in cheek that I wrote at the end of the previous post that it took only 20 minutes to upload those photos.  Please if you are having problems, report it to WB.


  1. Cathy, I am so sorry you are having such problems. Have you ever thought of using a satellite service to get your emails/wifi service?
    Hope the Easter bunny can bring you the present of worry free service as a present for Easter! ((hugs))

  2. Retired One, WB IS a satellite service. Other than dial up it is the only thing available outside of Newberry. Happy Easter to you and Paul.

    high speed dial-up works well on CR 407 North

  4. Anonymous, who do you have high speed dial up through? We don't have that down here...AT&T
