#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal . The whale was back yesterday afternoon. There was no orange paint on its back. Now Tommy UK doesn’t know if it is the same whale and the paint , which should have lasted two or three days, somehow came off or if there is more than one whale in the lake. He still thinks this might be the same whale that is being seen at Kootenay Lake. He is basing that on the driblet and on the fact that the whale in the Lake of the Loons never appears at the same time as the whale on Kootenay Lake. At first he thought there must be some kind of underground river between the Lake of the Loons and Kootenay Lake. But no whale could swim that fast over that distance so something else has to be at work here. Not only is it a mystery how a whale shows up in the Lake of the Loons but how is it transported from one lake to the other, if that’s what’s happening. Tommy UK loves a mystery.
The Tommy Club and Tammy continue to try to discover the secret of the white rabbit which hasn’t been seen since their investigation began. She thinks it is because whoever is behind the hoax is afraid of being caught so he is keeping it hidden for the moment. Tommy UK told here there have often been long period between sightings and the two things probably aren’t related at all.
Mayor Trumble announced that the Blue Notes Drum and Bugle Corp from Ishpeming will play in the fourth of July parade this year. Every other year they have had only the Liar’s Club 65 piece band but this year one of the three members has to be out of town on the 4th. The Blue Notes are left over from a time when almost every UP town including Pigeon Falls had a drum and bugle corps. Those were the good old days. In addition to the usual parade there will be a big picnic out at the Lake of the Loons and a massive display of fireworks.

Today's Link-Retail Hell Underground- One weird blog
It was a good day until now. I did some blogging, left some comments, did some reading, watched a little television. My sister Dawn called and told me what's going on in the rest of the family. Then I went to close this blog with a picture. Blogger wouldn't let me. I fooled around for an hour. I have given up and now I need a breathing treatment.

"A barrel with dirt for the clematis." That should be a fairly easy one.

Tommy UK needs to go investigate the place by the rock from the dribblet.

I'm getting well confused by this whale. Is the lake salt water or fresh? Maybe the whale is a time-traveler.

Well, they better be careful with the fireworks this year! We don't want to hurt the whale! No tunnel huh? Mysteriouser and mysteriouser...

At first I misread your meme -- I thought you were going to blog and work-out today! I was thinking your oxygen must REALLY be doing well!!! But working on the layout works too. My husbands layout has sat in our basement untouched for about the last 2 years.... *sigh* Do you have pictures of yours? I would love to SEE Pigeon Falls!

Wonderful meme, Dr. John. You did a great job with your answers. Just the same, it's too bad that you were made to feel uncomfortable. Shame on that woman who tagged you! The next time I see her, I will give her a piece f my mind!

I hate being tagged but love meme's too! I also hate tagging - it feels so restrictive. That said, it's very nice to learn a little bit more about you! Thanks for sharing.

In order to gain riches it is usually a insightful plan to begin a savings or investing game plan as soon in life as imaginable. But don't despair if you have not started saving your assets until later on in life. As a consequence of honest work, that is researching the best investment vehicles for your cash you can slowly but surely increase your riches so that it extends to a big amount by the period you want to retire. Review all of the applicable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A well diversified portfolio of investments in various asset classes can make your money advance throughout the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
