Ball Drop  NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
I’m making up my list:

  • TAKE MY VITAMINS DAILY
  • WRITE SOME “REAL” LETTERS (not just e-mail)
  • Do more physical therapy
  • Go to Church more

     When I call my relatives in states like Texas, Georgia, and Florida … they delight in bragging about their weather … temps at least 50/60 degrees warmer than we have here.  They don’t get stuck in the snow, either.

    Another anecdote from Telephone Time:
” A FELLOW CALLED IN, LOOKING TO BUY A USED SNOWMOBILE.  HIS HOME  IS IN ALASKA; HE’S BOUGHT PROPERTY BY CRYSTAL FALLS & COMES SOUTH TO WINTER HERE.  WHEN HE RETIRES (SOME OF HIS WORK BRINGS  HIM ABOVE THE ARTIC CIRCLE) … HE’S PLANNING ON MOVING SOUTH TO CRYSTAL FALLS … WE ONLY HAVE 5 MONTHS OF WINTER HERE!”

Reading   SOME WINTER READING:

My winter reading project:
 
I DID THIS LAST YEAR, TOO … CRYSTAL FALLS LIBRARY HAS A WONDERFUL SELECTION OF BOOKS ON THE UPPER PENINSULA.
    
Some are history books; I like the books  made for certain towns for the centennial celebrations.  These  have many old photos, family names, & history going way back.  I’m sure that all libraries would have books of regional interest, too.
 
Computing    Others are by local authors past & present   …. so interesting  …. ARE YOU WRITING YOURS, YET?

     Especially for those who live in Michigan, some libraries have a system so that you can have your own library order a book from the Crystal Falls library for you for a reasonable fee.  TRY IT?

    Michigan has an e-Library;


History Resources at the site:

It looks as tho one might be able to look up old plat maps, too.
