In Honor of

Paul Bunyan Day
June 28th

 

MANY THE TALES OF PAUL BUNYAN and his blue ox “Babe” originated in the lumberjack industry and logging communities. Like all good folklore, it was passed from generation to generation by word of mouth. Over campfires, his legend grew; and wondrous stories were created. But who was "the man" who inspired these tales? One suggestion lies in the video that follows.
 

 

The Paul Bunyan of folklore is "credited" with many deeds. Among his more legendary feats:

  • He created logging in the U.S.
     
  • He scooped out the great lakes to water Babe, his ox.
     
  • He cleared the entire states of North and South Dakota for farming.
     
  • He trained ants to do logging work. They were, of course, Carpenter Ants.
     
  • Babe's large footprints created Minnesota's 10,000 lakes.
     
  • He is best known for his logging feats. Paul Bunyan was a gigantic lumberjack of American Folklore.

 

Celebrate Paul Bunyan Day in a giant way; he would expect you to!

HOW I GOT WHERE I AM
It's time for you to write your "story" of where and why you're living where you are. Some have chosen to write a lengthy narrative, which has been wonderful; but I fear it's frightened off others.

Please just share what made you choose your hometown to retire in; or if you're still working, please tell us where and what keeps you going. We'll take stories of any size - we just want to catch up on YOU!

You can email them to me at indianamackey@aol.com or post them on "What's New!"

You'll find the answers we've received so far - How I Got Where I Am -  listed to the left of the HOME PAGE about half way down and just before "Special Series."

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE 
TOO SHY TOO ASK

We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.

 The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.

 A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.

So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
