Giving Thanks in Michigan

Y. writes:
YPSIDIXIT would like to see Michigan Stadium filled to memorialize a low-profile SOS Community Services worker who helped ensure that poor families in Ypsi could together share a hot Thanksgiving dinner this year.
The photo is from the Absolute Michigan Pool on Flickr. I chose it because it offers thanks to an early 20th Century conservationist. oakwood writes:
Thanks, Mr Leopold for all your efforts in wise conservation and wildlife management during the early years ot the 20th century when Canada Goose populations were near extinction.

Your legacy lives on.

Great Lakes freighter photos and history

Great Lakes Freighters are wonderful to watch as they appear to effortlessly navigate the Great Lakes. Enjoy this look at Great Lakes Freighters from Michigan bloggers and photographers.

michpics writes:
The latest entry into the Small World Files is today's photo of the 100 year old Southdown Challenger upbound on the Detroit River just above the Ambassador Bridge. Mac of Detroit Bike Blog wondered if I'd seen these photos. I hadn't and spent a good long while poring through this amazing set of Southdown/St. Mary's Challenger photos that takes you all across the Great Lakes, under the Mackinac Bridge and even belowdecks.
Be sure to read the rest of the fascinating history of this 100 year old steamer.

The photo above is from the Absolute Michigan Pool on Flickr. Be sure to read the history of this freighter too!

Improv Everywhere's Operation Best Buy by detroitarts

Imagine a group of 80 "shoppers" clad in the store uniform (khaki pants and blue shirts), marching into Best Buy. That's what happened in April at a NYC store. detroitarts writes:
"Improv Everywhere is a group of agents (pranksters) based in NYC who organize missions (happenings) in public space. Their intent is to bring excitement to otherwise unexciting locales and give strangers a story they can tell for the rest of their lives.
One of the group's latest missions took place in a Best Buy store and was carried out by more than 80 agents."
