GETTING STARTED WALKING ON PRESQUE ISLE

Posted: May 27, 2014 6:30 pm

There was once upon a time when everyone walked.  They walked to school, work and even grandma’s house.   However, today most people drive everywhere, so walking seems to have lost some of its importance in everyday life.   Notwithstanding, with today’s increased interest in the heath benefits of exercise, walking is becoming more widespread as a… View Article

THE WORLD COMES ALIVE AS SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG

Posted: May 20, 2014 6:42 pm

May seems to be spinning by so, so swiftly.   Now, I know this always appears so each year, but this May really has been shorter as a trace of March made its way into the early part of it.  A small piece of March frost and a bit of February’s snow actually found its way… View Article


SECRETS OF THE BIRDS–Part 1

Posted: May 12, 2014 8:15 pm

The most important item you will take from this particular blog is that birds are cool and amazing.   The second, which I realize many already know, is that bird watchers are just a bit crazy.   However, they are crazy in a good way.  Well, maybe a few in a weird way, but remember, at the end of… View Article



THRILLED BY A SUNRISE AND PRESQUE ISLE’S SIGNS OF SPRING

Posted: April 12, 2014 9:44 am

The last few mornings on Presque Isle have made me feel assured that spring indeed bursting out all over.   There is still ice on the lake and the park has even moved the beach walk back due to the ice.  But many other factors are factored into my idea that spring is about to arrive.  … View Article

AH, SPRING ON PRESQUE ISLE – - Well, Almost

Posted: April 4, 2014 6:40 pm

  Is it the return of the Red-Winged Blackbirds and the Robins? Is it the first bees buzzing in the Crocus cups? Maybe it is the ever-so-slight hint of green waltzing its way through parts of the Presque Isle woods. How about the visiting Turkey Buzzards on their way north? What is it that tells… View Article

  As most of you may have surmised from Part I and II of this Waterworks Blog, the citizens were not even a little happy with the behavior of their elected City Council during the early 1900s.
