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.

Oh the Cheesehead sense of humor, especially when it’s true. NFC North Champs for the Forth straight year. And the badass King Of The North comic book cover below (I wish we could find out who the artist is), well enough said… * * * * * * NOTE: Used for promotional purposes only. I … Continue reading
These lovely birds didn’t even mind that I came up to them and started taking their photos. Fact is, I was the intruder and they were cool with that. FYI, this was on the Fox River in Appleton, down near the hydro-electric plant and railroad track on the far side of Riverside drive. * * … Continue reading
Kenosha has more than its share of cheese shops, and while the more well known is the Mar’s Cheese Castle, a lesser known but just as unique cheese shop is right up the street, the Bobby Nelson Cheese Shop.
