Outside House On The Rock

HOTR Inn Dodgeville

I shot these quite some time ago, but just found them.  While the interior tour of House On The Rock is used in the documentary (to humorous and a bit eery effect), only a smidgen of the exterior, also an awesome place to visit, is used.  That place just keeps going and going.  Enjoy, and … Continue reading

Awesome Huge Sun Dog In The Sky

Sun Dog Awesome

Awesome Huge Sun Dog Above Rice Lake that I caught a couple of weeks ago.  It was one of those too big to be real sort of moments, until you realize what it is.  For a brief second I almost thought I was on another planet with two suns, until my fingers started to freeze … Continue reading

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. It’s where his teachers recognized his curious nature, answering never-ending questions like how electricity got to light switches or why windows vibrated. Now school officials hope Paul’s inspiration and innovative spirit rub…

Wisconsin’s Flying Trees, No Really!

Wisconsin Flying Trees HORIZONTAL

From a fellow Cheesehead comes Wisconsin’s Flying Trees During WWII.  I know it’s been out for a while, but it’s a really interesting look at a unique piece of Wisconsin history, and more proof to our tradition of military service.  Check it out at AMAZON or on Kindle. *** ***

Curd Fest Banner

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

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

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
