A photo of Nancy on this tread would lend it a degree of culture and beauty well beyond the rudimentary reminisces, beer banter, garage goofups, and mathematical mayhem our readers have come to know and trust.

Hmmm . . . maybe we do need a distraction.

Jon, have you got that shot of Noonan and Nancy at PRI?

Whoa, boys . . . settle down now.

I think THIS is what we are referring to - a Yooper delicacy -

http://theyoopergirl.com/2015/02/traditional-yooper-pasties/

But ALSO available fresh from the oven from a wonderful little hole-in-the-wall shop just 20 blocks from the Pommy Pigmy Playhouse -

http://reynoldspasties.com/#home

AND available in the frozen food section of fine grocers throughout the upper Midwest.

They're tasty!

Since you're taking the nekkid out of this, I can say that I can recommend Jean Kay's Pasties in Marquette, Mi:

When I was up at Jon's a couple of years ago, he sent me there and WOW.....Dodge GOOD to this Southern Boy!
Chris, Next time you and Kate are up there, please go! They REALLY are delicious!

Oh well.....I still like Nancy's Pastie Pasties!  :evil:

They have those in the UK.  They might be originally from there.  These is a shop in London that has varieties from places like Cornwall.  The curry ones are my favorite.

So... 'pastries' lost its 'r' when I wasn't looking? :?

Out of the first eight dictionaries consulted, six of them defined 'pasties' only as coverings for a woman's nipples.
However, the other two dictionaries taught me that pasties (food) are not a type of pastry as I had thought; they are all made with meat and veggies.

Pasty is pronounced PASS-tea, and pastie is PASTE-ee.  Pasties are said to be of Cornish origina -- and they evidently made it to the UP of Michigan in the dinner pails of Cornish miners that flocked here during the 19thcentury to live and work in the copper mines and the iron mines.

A pasty is made of meat - such as coarse-ground flank steak - diced or cubed or sometimes thin-sliced potatoes, and underground vegetables including rutabaga, sometimes carrot, onion, and so on.  It is wrapped in a medium-tough pie crust and baked.

Anything else you need to know for the MM build?

It's Gregg's fault, he started this gastronomic detour.

One more story and I'll quit.  I spent lots of time in the Copper Country as a student and community radio announcer - so I learned stuff.  Like the miner's wives would make pasties with the meat at one end - and a fruit or cake filling at the other.  Toivo would have dessert after he ate the meat portion.  And the dinner bucket was often a two-story affair, with the food in the top portion.  The bottom was water tight and had a removable cap, and Toivo's wife, Helga, would fill it with hot tea as he got ready to to the mine, and as the tea cooled during the hours -- the heat rose and kept the pasty warm so his lunch was even more tasty.

I don't know how Helga got the ketchup down to him, though.

End of food hijack.  I officially declare it dead. :dhorse:

SSS, Just one last comment and then we're done!

It's Gregg's fault, he started this gastronomic detour.

Dan, If SSS had not posted Nancy's pastie pasties picture years ago, it would have not brought it up.....so it was HIS fault...LOL!  :-D
OK ----- WE'RE DONE WITH THIS GASTRONOMIC DETOUR  :dhorse: :dhorse:  :dhorse:

So now, it's back to the Midget and His Crankshaft.....LOL!  :-D  :-D  :-D
