It's some cold weather out there this winter. I can imagine you are bring in an extra armload of firewood for the night.  thecfarm is probably using his preferred peavey to pry his loose from the snow.

Terrifying?
From the knowledge base

Yooper Night. What is a Yooper?

It's easy to understand that many wouldn't know what was happening on "yooper night." A "Yooper" is a locally common name for someone native to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. To start with many around the world, or even in the U.S. don't know that Michigan has a Upper Peninsula. To those who wonder, check out a map of Michigan. The Upper Peninsula is commonly shortened to "UP". A person whose born there is referred to as a "UPer" or  in time more commonly as a "Yooper." The folks in the UP are wonderful people, but they have developed a way of talking that is different that in some other parts of the US, or even in Michigan for that matter.

This comes from the fact that the UP is rich in copper , iron, and wood, and these materials were heavily mined in the 19th and 20th centuries.  Folks from all over the world went there to work in the mines and take advantage of the opportunities for a new life. There were Finns, Italians, Cornish, Germans, Pols, and many others. These folks upon arrival in the UP tended to live in communities of their own nationality. There was naturally some competition among the ethnic groups as to who were the best miners, or best whatever. Over time there have been changes, the mining industry is nearly gone, the woods industry has taken many of the former miners or their descendents. As you might imagine there has been considerable mixing and intermarrage amongst these groups. The UP is extremely rich in outdoor activities and is relatively unpopulated--maybe 400,000 souls, and it is a destination for many hunters, campers, skiiers, snowmobilers, fishermen, nature watchers, etc.

Their language is a little clipped, they talk fast, and portions of all these ethnic groups have crept into their vernacular. They're a proud people, those Yoopers, and proud they should be.  The custon of adding "eh?" to the end of sentences is common. That's something that many Canadians do as well.  "The" is frequently shortened to "da", and "for" comes our "fur", and many other localisms. And it sort of feeds on itself.

My kids are both Yoopers, although I am not. I was born in Lower Michigan. The UP has a bit of a slowed pace, while the Lower Peninsula, particularly the southern part of the LP is fast paced and sort of frantic. As you can imagine, there is a little competition between the peninsulas. Da yoopers make fun of "da trolls" (those who live below the Mackinaw Bridge), and the trolls make a little fun of the yoopers.  It's all in good taste.

Well with that background, Jeff, da Boss, made the forum software automatically insert a ",eh?" where it might not have been originally inserted by the forum posters.  It was all in good fun.  Some of us, close to the scene got it right away, while some took longer to figure it out, and some didn't figure it out at all, and understandably so. I thought it was great fun. We Michiganders were poking a little fun at ourselves, and many others were happy to help. As you know our beloved Chet is a Yooper, and one of the proudest. And a nicer or more talented guy you'll never find.

Hope this helps a little.  Don't feel left out.

There's been a lot of discussion about grits, but nobody's mentioned hominy.  Just be sure to cook the hominy in the pan you just cooked the bacon in. 

I wonder if thecfarm has the same level of hostility for hominy.  ??

Now Ray....I've tried to make you understand but you're just too hard headed.  :snowball:

But grits is spelled with a CAPITAL G.

I understand you don't eat grits touch them or purchase them.

But please respect our southern delicacy my using a CAPITAL G when
referring to our food.

Jeff,

   Yep. That's pretty terrifying. Haven't been that scared since I did one of those DNA tests and it came back 40% Neanderthal, 30% Sasquatch and 30% unknown. :D

Reports from the Department of Agriculture indicate that the unusually cold weather that just recently affected the entire south and southeast may have had a detrimental affect on over-wintering grit plants.  This could adversely affect the grit harvest this summer.  Based on that information, I would recommend that everyone stock up on grits.  Especially grit lovers in the Northeastern states and places such as Chesterville, Maine.

I think one box in my lifetime will last me a while.  ;D
One reason why I will not be buried in a casket. I don't need someone to slip in a box of grits to last me in the after life.  ;D

So yer thinking ashes? Ashes that could be sprinkled over seed corn to help it grow then when harvested, stone ground into grits?

WDH,good one.  ;D 
Making grits in Maine is illegal. I think it's one of those old blue laws. Than you get them people from away,and they want to change everything to make Maine better. 
There will be no making of corn with my ashes.

   I have an old HS buddy down in NW Fla who works for the county and I told him if he dies before I do I am going to have him cremated and miss his ashes in a big batch of wet cement and go around the county filling potholes. Then I am going to tell everyone "I know one county employee who is doing something useful for the people in the county."

    I would think it would be a high honor to be buried in a casket full of grits. Kind of like southern Ambrosia to the old Greek gods.

Reincarnation, by Wallace McRae

What is reincarnation? A cowboy asked his friend.

It starts, his old pal told him, when your life comes to an end.

They wash your neck and comb your hair and clean your fingernails,

And put you in a padded box away from lifeís travails.

The box and you goes in a hole thatís been dug in the ground.

Reincarnation starts in when youíre planted neath that mound.

Them clods melt down, just like the box, and you who is inside.

And thatís when you begin your transformation ride.

And in a while the grass will grow upon your rendered mound,

Until some day, upon that spot, a lonely flower is found.

And then a horse may wander by and graze upon that flower

That once was you, and now has become your vegetated bower.

Now, the flower that the horse done eat, along with his other feed,

Makes bone and fat and muscle essential to the steed.

But thereís a part that he canít use and so it passes through.

And there it lies upon the ground, this thing that once was you.

And if perchance, I should pass by and see this on the ground,

Iíll stop awhile and ponder at this object that Iíve found.

Iíll think about Reincarnation and life and death and such,

And come away concludiní, why, you ainít changed all that much.
