SHEEP FARM 02

Sheep Lovers Make Great Cheese Too

I ran in to Larry Meisegeier at the Wisconsin Artisan Cheese Festival in Madison last winter and was finally able to check out the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative in Weyerhauser.  He also took me out to one of his co-op member farms where I got to see how it all begins.  Frankly, it’s exactly the same … Continue reading

Curd Fest Banner

Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival Fun

Ellsworth is, of course, the cheese curd capital of Wisconsin, and frankly, the world.  I covered how cheese curds are made at their factory for the documentary, and decided I had to check out the Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival to see just how much people love them.  They do, even having them on their pizzas, … Continue reading

Appleton Legion 02

Military Pride In Appleton

These were taken a while back (I can tell from the camera used).  You see these types of military displays and tributes all around Wisconsin, as it should be. * * * * * *

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

Neenah Foundry 01

Where Manhole Covers Go To Be Born…

Okay, so the title is silly, but there’s really only one place in the United States that makes manhole covers for pretty much everyone all around the country, and that’s the Neenah Foundry in Neenah.  I got to take a tour of the place with camera in hand, got exceptional footage (like one of those … Continue reading

Shotgun Lovesongs CROP

Duel Cheesehead Connection To Shotgun Lovesongs Novel

Interestingly, there is a duel Cheesehead connection to the recently published Nickolas Butler debut novel “Shotgun Lovesongs”, that being that the author lives in Northern Wisconsin (in a rural area next door to a buffalo farm), and that the books cover photo was taken by, well, me, also from Wisconsin and a proud Cheesehead.  The … Continue reading

TW Airplane Spoof

Travel Wisconsin “Airplane” Spoof Is A Fun One

Check out the new Travel Wisconsin commercial, a fun tribute to the Airplane franchise brought to the world by theZucker Brothers, dear and proud Cheeseheads.  The Zucker brothers were born and raised in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played for the Milwaukee Bucks, helping the Bucks win their only NBA championship. * * *   … Continue reading

John Ridley OSCAR

Milwaukee born John Ridley Wins Academy Award

Milwaukee born John Ridley (who grew up in Mequon) won the Oscar this year for Best Screenplay based on a previous work for the film “Twelve Years A Slave”.  While many Wisconsin born talents have won Oscars over the years (Spencer Tracey, Orson Welles, Fredrich March to name but a few), it was nice to … Continue reading

AWE Farm WINTER Sunset

Winter Sun & Sky

Considering how cold and cloudy this winter has been, thought a few shots of bright sun, albeit low in the horizon and during winter, would warm the thoughts of some. * * * * * *

Stradivarius Six Million

Stradivarius Stolen In Milwaukee

Okay, not something to be proud of.  Hope they catch who did it.  But it is a bit humorous that the thief was decent enough to use a stun gun and not a hand gun with bullets. Theft of Stradivarius violin was for money, not possession, experts say. via Theft of Stradivarius violin was for … Continue reading

Harley SNOW 04

Harley Davidson Despite The Winter Snow

I know, we gotta pack the Harley Davidson up every winter and leave it be in the garage.  But you can still stop by the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee in the winter and get your fix.  Here’s a few cool shots from last year. * * *   * * *

GB Oldest House 01

The Hazelwood Historic House Museum In Green Bay

Known as the oldest home in Green Bay, the Hazelwood House, now an historical museum, has a pretty awesome view of the Fox River, though since I was there on an overcast day, the photos don’t do it justice.  It’s one of those neat little delights you can stumble upon, nestled away in a place … Continue reading

Freedom Water Tower

Wisconsin’s Very Own Freedom Tower, Well Sort Of

Freedom isn’t just a word, an ideology, or the name of a skyscraper in New York City, it’s also the name of a small town straight north of Appleton if you’re taking the back roads up to Green Bay.  It’s a fun little town to stop in on, and the local grocer (like every small … Continue reading

MORGUE Oneida 05

The Morgue Haunted House

I know it’s not Holloween, but stumbling upon some fun pictures while driving back roads near DePere, I came across an old school house renamed The Morgue, and took several photos of it.  Interestingly enough, there was also a church right next to it.  After finding the pictures, I looked up what it might be … Continue reading

Blacktop 01

Blacktop Back Road Beauty

Nothing much to say about these shots other than, damn Wisconsin can be beautiful to drive around.  Even the blacktop roads can be a thing of beauty.  Enjoy the summer travel views during this cold winter. * * * * * *

Fifield 01

Fifield – Phonetically Funny

Found these shots I took as I drove through the very tiny town of FiField and the name struck me as phonetically funny.  Of course Wisconsin is no stranger to odd sounding or hard to pronounce town names like Lac Du Flambeau (Yeah, we who love Lambeau Field understand that one, but to an outsider, … Continue reading

Falling Water ICE 03
