Not Just for Pasties Anymore

Upper Peninsula farm

While browsing the Web site I came across this short video I thought I’d share:

“Down on the farm”

Okay, so “That’s why I wish again that I was in Michigan” is not “Oklahoma” or “Stars Fell on Alabama” or “Blue Hawaii.” I think you’ll agree the cowbell is a nice touch, though.

It’s one of the “Weekly Pasty Cameo” features — mini-documentaries — about different aspects of life in the UP. Good stuff.

Previously I’ve mentioned the Pasty Cam daily photo on, which is based in Calumet in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

What's next: Oil change by is also a place to check on historical happenings for each day, discover local artists and businesses, or —imagine that—place an order for the meat pie that launched the multi-faceted Web site.

I’ve heard unconfirmed reports that you’ll soon be able to enjoy a root canal and get your oil changed at

Now, if only the talented folks behind the operation could come up with a new song about the state.
