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

Yummies From New London

Came across these pictures from at least two years ago when I drove through New London at dusk.  I had no idea Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms had such a big pressence in Wisconsin.  But it makes perfect sense since making great food is second nature to us.  Got a pile of brand new photos … 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 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

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

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

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
