Has anyone had good luck fishing Lake of the Woods, zippel bay ? We are hoping to book a June 2012 walleye trip to Zippel Bay and wonder how the fishing is and if the resort owners (Zippel Bay Resort) are accomodating?

I have been up there in summer as well as during the winter ice fishing more so. They are very accommodating. They have a launch as well as boats to rent. Zipple bay state park is just a few miles from there as well.

What are really creative ways to propose marriage? Ive been dating my girlfriend for 3 years. I love her so much and I really want to do something really romantic and then propose to her. I got the ring and everything. I want to make her happy because she is such a beautiful and good hearted person.
Well my personal idea is to take my girlfriend on a walk somewhere romantic, a place that is really special to her. Don’t let on that you have something planned and as your walking along let her get a few steps ahead of you and then kneel down on the ground and say “hey what is this? I found something” when she turns around and comes toward you, pick the ring up off the ground and propose to her! lol this is just something that I have always thought would be the way I want to propose.

find something she really likes (baseball, cooking, shopping) and incorporate the ring into that activity. or something she hates.but preferrably the first one.exhibit 1: your girl loves to read. set up a hammock on a lovely day with a mug/cup of a favorite beverage, blanket, and other necessities. when you “forgot the book” run up, get a book (that she doesnt like), have it hollowed out and put your ring in it. present it to her casually and voila! proposal.exhibit 2: your girl hates mice. dress up as a mouse and bring lots of rubber mice with you. surprise her. when she gets furious at you, bend down and pop that ole ring out. whats she gonna say then?i’m having way too much fun with this. good luck!

dont put it on a balloon and give it to her because I saw a video of a person who got that balloon and gasped and let go of it and they didnt get it back

I have three older brothers and they have all proposed in unique ways. My oldest brother was skating with his girlfriend outside at about 9pm and all the christmas lights were out and he had a friend with him who was hiding a video camera. For a while his friend “held back”, but when they got to the designated spot his friend got close to camcord the event. He just got down one knee and gave her the ring and she started crying.My second brother took my sister-in-law for a walk on the beach and here in MN at Zippel Bay we have a long 2-mile beach with barely any people. He came about 10pm when the sun was setting, they had just got unpacked in their cabin because they were going to camp, and he had my brother and I help him set up the beach while they were occupied- there was flower petals, candles, and “will you marry me” written in the sand. There is never anyone around at the time she saw it so they had the beach all to theirselves. My third brother is engaged at the moment and he wrote a song on the guitar. It started out as if it was just a love song but then at the end the last words were “What I’m trying to say. (he put the guitar down, got down on his knee and said) Will you marry me?”. My brothers try to compete. It’s fun.

Any good secluded camping and swimming holes in Minnesota? I”m headed for a trip around MN. Was looking for any good camping and swimming holes that people are aware of around the area. The more private the campsite, and clearer the water the better! Any help?
You might check out Scenic State Park which is about one hour north of Grand Rapids. Its secluded, beautiful, and the lakes are clean. Also, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area which is a huge area right on the Canadian border.Some other places include:Voyageurs National ParkLake Itasca State ParkBearhead Lake State ParkWilliam O’Brian State ParkZippel Bay State Park

“TIMBER MILL COMMUNITY PARK” East of Baudette along the shoreline of the Rainy River. “BAY FRONT PARK”, home of Willie Walleye, is located on Baudette Bay. “Zippel Bay State Park” is located ten miles northeast of Williams, Minnesota on Lake of the Woods. Entrance to the park is from Lake of the Woods County State Aid Highway 8. “FRANZ JEVNE STATE PARK” Secluded and peaceful, this park offers picturesque views of Ontario and the Rainy River. Short paths and a boat launch offer access to the river for fishing, where anglers can catch walleyes, northerns, smallmouth bass and sturgeon. Pitch a tent in the rustic campsites, equipped with pit toilets, and a hand pump for water. A picnic area overlooks Sault Rapids.

were there any major events happening between 1703 and 1707? *especially those having to do with germanyhaha very funny. (sarcasm)RECORDED major events. therewhoever just wrote a novel on Bach. no comment.
Yes, as there are ALWAYS major events in time, whether recorded or not – simply because nobody took the time to record it, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

Johann Sebastian BachArnstadt, Erfurt, and Eisenach are the towns in which the Bach family had resided for nearly 100 years. When Bach returned to Arnstadt, there remained in that city many relatives, including two cousins named Barbara, and another named Johann Ernst. Sebastian would later later marry one of the Barbaras. Too, his stepmother had returned there in 1695 after the death of his father. And Bach did not lack for influential contacts–many of Arnstadt’s prominent citizens were related to his great uncle Heinrich, town organist for fifty years until his death in 1692. Technical Expertise on the Organ——————————————————————————– Bach organ in Arnstadt ——————————————————————————–Bach’s appointment at Arnstadt was attributable to his reputation as one who had technical expertise in pipe organ design and construction. As a youngster in Eisenach, Ohrdruf and Lüneburg, it was Sebastian’s good fortune that these towns had undertaken renovations of the organs in their various churches. In view of his instinctive curiosity and keen ear for the acoustical properties of instruments and interior spaces, there can be little doubt that Sebastian was a frequent companion of the guildsmen in charge of these reconstructions, if not an active participant himself. The German pipe organ of the eighteenth century ranks as the most complex technology the world would see until the industrial age. Although never recorded the manner in which young Bach acquired his knowlege of the inner workings of the instrument, he was evidently an expert by the age of eighteen, after which he was in great demand to test and certify new organs. In 1703 he was called to Arnstadt to perform such a test on the organ of the Church of St. Boniface, or as it was called, “the New”. The three churches in Arnstadt already had an organist when Johann Sebastian arrived to test the organ at St. Boniface. Unfortunately for Andreas Börner, the town’s authorities were sufficiently impressed with Bach’s playing that they offered him the “New” position, leaving Börner with the other two churches. Duties & SalaryBach’s duties at Arnstadt were to accompany the services at the Neuekirche and to maintain the new organ It is necessary to note at this juncture that Bach’s contract made no requirement that he compose figural music–a point of contention later on. In exchange Sebastian’s salary was fixed at 50 Florins per year, plus 30 Thaler for room and board. This was a very fine salary considering that the church was very poor, the organist was very young, and his duties very light. The high pay cannot be explained as a desire on the part of the Consistory to secure the services of brilliant talent as much as, having had a Bach as organist for the last 50 years, the town was evidently eager to hire another. Zippel FagottistIn August of 1705 there was recorded an incident when Bach, upset with the poor performance of one of the church musicians, a certain Geyersbach, referred to him as a Zippel Fagottist. Later one evening, while Sebastian was walking with one of his cousins, Barbara, the same Geyersbach accosted Bach and demanded a retraction. When Bach would not apologize the Zippel Fagottist set upon him with a walking stick, whereupon Bach drew his sword. The altercation must have made a suitable impression on the young cousin, but the Consistory was not pleased. In its reprimand the town council noted, unfairly, that Bach was neglecting the composition of figural music (technically not one of his contractual duties). Overstays His Leave ——————————————————————————–Buxtehude was cantor and organist at Lübeck’s Marienkirche ——————————————————————————–In the autumn of 1705 Bach requested a leave of absence to visit Lübeck, home of the brilliant organist Dietrich Buxtehude. Upon being granted four weeks, Bach walked to Lübeck, covering the 250 miles in about ten days. When it came time to return to Arnstadt Bach lingered in Lübeck for a full three months without consulting his employers. It is possible that Bach left Arnstadt intending full well to overstay his leave so that he might attend Buxtehude’s upcoming Abendmusiken, an Advent event of some renown in northern Germany. an Offer He Could RefuseThe elderly Buxtehude held a position that would have been attractive to younger musicians the likes of Bach. But the practice was that if, upon his death, a cantor left an unmarried daughter the new cantor must take her as wife, a custom responsible for Buxtehude’s own marriage. In 1703 Handel and Mattheson had come to Lübeck, ostensibly for the Abendmusiken, but unofficially to check out Buxtehude’s unmarried 30-year-old daughter. Bach may have prolonged his stay for a similar reason. Apparently he did not like what he saw, for he returned to Arnstadt and soon thereafter married his cousin Maria Barbara. Upon Buxtehude’s death, two years later, his unhappy daughter remained unmarried. Reprimanded Again ——————————————————————————–Olearius (1635-1711) conducted the inquiry into Bach’s behavior ——————————————————————————–Needless to say, when Sebastian returned to Arnstadt the Consistory was not pleased. On the twenty-first of February 1706, Superintendent Johann Gottfried Olearius conducted a hearing into the matter during which Bach defended himself by reminding the authorities that he had left his affairs in charge of a deputy–cousin Johann Ernst–and that he had not been payed during his leave. The Consistory upbraided him for his lack of attention to the boys of the choir, and for the manner in which he accompanied the chorales which, they said, confused the congregation. They directed him: “If in the future you want to introduce your tonus peregrinus, you must keep to it, and on no account fly off instantaneously into a tonus contrarius.” The Stranger MaidenAs it was not the custom at this time to allow women to sing in church, the Consistory also chided Bach for having recently allowed a “stranger maiden” to show herself and to make music. This stranger maiden was probably Maria Barbara. It would appear that the Consistory’s displeasure over Bach’s absence was exceeded only by its relief to have him back; they payed his full month’s salary for February, even though he did not return till the middle of that month. Oldest Extant Manuscript ——————————————————————————–Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (BWV 739) ——————————————————————————–It will be remembered that Bach’s contract at Arnstadt required him to play and maintain the organ and that is all. His compositions from this period were therefore produced at his own initiative and on his own time. As would be expected, most of them are for the keyboard, including: toccatas for clavier, several reworkings of compositions by earlier Italian composers (Legrenzi, Corelli, Albinoni), and organ works. Included among the compositions for organ is the prelude on Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern, which survives today as the oldest extant manuscript in Bach’s own hand. A Program Work ——————————————————————————–Capriccio (BWV 992): Bach wrote this program work for his brother ——————————————————————————–The year after Sebastian’s arrival in Arnstadt, his brother, Jacob, left Saxony to become oboist in the guard of Sweden’s king, Charles XII. Within five years Jacob had accompanied king Charles into battle against Russia’s Peter the Great, seen defeat at Poltava, escaped to Turkey, and returned again to Sweden. On the occasion of Jacob’s departure Sebastian composed a harpsichord work in the program style of Kuhnau. The several movements of Capriccio on the Departure of His Most Beloved Brother contain subtitles such as: “A coaxing by his friends to dissuade him from his journey,” “A picturing of the various calamities that might overtake him in foreign parts,” and “Now come the friends–since they see that it cannot be otherwise–and take leave of him.” The Capriccio concludes with one of Bach’s earliest known fugues. Stormy RelationshipThe record of Johann Sebastian’s tenure at Arnstadt reveals his personality as that of an ambitious, high-strung, and creative youth. On at least three occasions–August 1705 and February and November of 1706–Bach was summoned to explain why he was not training the choir boys properly (it appears that Bach and the boys had a falling out early on). Each time Bach replied that in his view, as organist, this was not his responsibility, and that if the church wanted someone to attend to these duties they should hire a choir director, which they absolutely could not afford to do considering the high salary they were paying their organist. The Consistory was remarkably patient, even generous, with Bach, but it was an uncomfortable relationship, and in 1707, to the relief of the authorities, Bach removed himself.

In 1701, when the last of Queen Anne’s children died, The English Parliament passed the Act of Succession allowing the throne to pass to the House of Hannover after Anne’s death. The Scottish Parliament responded with The Act of Security, which provided for the Scottish Crown to pass along a different line, to be determined after Anne’s death.The English Parliament intimidated Scotland with The Alien Act of 1705, threatening to confiscate property held by Scots in England unless Scotland accepted the Hanoverian Succession. Scotland passed The Wine Act, legalising the importation of wines and other commodities from England’s enemies. England passed the Black Cattle Act preventing Scottish drovers from bringing their herds over the border for sale. After Marlborough had defeated the French at Blenheim and attack from the Continental enemies was forestalled for the time being, Marlborough was ordered to marshal his troops near the Scottish border within reach of Edinburgh. In 1706, the Scottish Parliament appointed commissioners to negotiate a union. A hasty deal was done. The Scots accepted a ‘bribe’ of some £400,000 Sterling, to pay off debts and refund the shareholders of The Darien Scheme and the problems of separate churches and legal systems were left unsolved. By an Act of both Parliaments, Scotland’s Act was finalised in a cellar in Hollyrood, The Kingdom of Great Britain came into being on 1st May 1707.
