          We had a very lazy day today. Reading, listening to music, eating, enjoying the view - we eventually took a trip into town to get some supplies. I can't believe it, but I really fancied fudge, so bought a slice in Calumet. I actually did not want a ...

          Jonathan woke me up this morning as he saw a huge woodpecker. It really was huge with a big red head and when we looked it up, we found out that it is named the "pileated woodpecker" and is the biggest woodpecker in the United States. It's the size of a crow. Shortly after seeing the big woodpecker, there was a smaller one working away at a tree right in front of the window. Then a blue jay sat in front of the other window to say "hello". It's fantastic to be able to be ...

          ... if my great grandparents ever went to the theatre? It is so beautiful inside. I imagine that the cheap seats of $1.00 were expensive back then? The best seats were $2.50. There was no box office at that time - the tickets were sold at the drug stores or were sold at town auctions or by a lottery. And the tickets only went on sale at 9:30am on the day of the performance. It is such a stunning theatre, reminiscent of old West End theaters in London and was one ...

          ... closer it stopped. I could hear it coming from the other side, so I crept over and it stopped again!!! Mystery. I wonder what it was? I was staring at it for quite a while and couldn't figure it out. Whatever it was, it was small! After not reaching the tailings, we decided to retrace our steps (I had no idea where I was) but thankfully Jonathan has a good memory. I saw our foot prints in the earth, so felt relieved at that. I would have got myself quite lost and in ...

          ... was spelt "Allan" in the computer and he was searching something incorrectly or looking on he wrong book - I didn't quite catch the reason as I was too excited. Of course we went back to the cemetery but could not figure out where she was. Only to discover that the map on the wall is incorrect. Can you believe that someone made the effort to hand draw the plan of their cemetery and it's incorrect? He showed me scribbles of the correct version and said she was buried in ...
