Nice Houses In New Richmond

I don’t know why I am posting this other than that I ran across these photos recently and thought what nice houses they were.  Really, this is probably the least important posting ever, but they still are quite lovely homes. * * * * * *

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) – Music legend Les Paul discovered his penchant for guitar at Waukesha Junior High.

Peculiar Fun Art In Sturgeon Bay

I met Tim at his studio in Sturgeon Bay and found out that he was also one of the originators of the Ducktape Guys and their series of humorous books on all the things you can do with duck tape (and it’s a lot).  Google them when you get the chance, but meanwhile, enjoy some of … Continue reading

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

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
