Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

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

The Morgue Haunted House

MORGUE Oneida 05

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

Wisconsin Weather Gone Wild

Minus 27 BRRR

While I am off in Southern California editing on a breezy 73 degree day, my family was stuck in the minus 27 degree weather in the Rice Lake area (see top photo below).  That’s where I would be if there right now, and that’s also a one hundred degree difference.  Futher, it was a change … Continue reading

Ella's Deli Brewers

I had the pleasure of dining with our dear friend Steve “The Owner” Tate at Ella’s Deli several months ago and it was quite the pleasing experience for a number of reasons, particular the great deli food and ice cream, but also the decor.  So many things from the past and present on display, yet … Continue reading

An Upside Down White House In Wisconsin Dells

White House Wisconsin Dells

The upside down alien attacked White House in Wisconsin Dells looks even more creepy when you shoot it at night when no one is around (see video).  It’s like it really happened, and with Halloween upon us, it has all the luster of a haunted house.  Creepy and cool all the same. * * * … Continue reading

Pumpkins Are Fun In The Fall

Pumpkin Patch Rice Lake

It’s fall, so that means pumpkins.  Here’s a killer pumpkin patch and maze just outside of Rice Lake.  Espcecially neat is the pumpkin tree that had to be at least sixty feet high. * * * * * *

Where Antiques & Cheese Come Together

Tim & Tom 01

Tim and Tom’s Cheese shop is located just outside of Kenosha, right off the freeway a few miles away from Mars Cheese Castle, but it’s a world of difference from the Castle filled with cheese because it also offers up an awesome variety of antiques and unique items for sale.  Lots of collectables, old liscense … Continue reading

Capone_hideout_04

Several years ago I had a chance to got to Al Capone’s Northwoods Retreat with my brother and mother (before it closed down) and was able to get some photos of the place.  It’s interesting to know that so much of the Chicago gang activity of the 1920’s had a sort of silent existence in … Continue reading

Last fall after we had the opportunity to interview Mayor Soglin of Madison for the documentary, our traveling companion mascot Lexxy decided she must have her picture taken at the state capital building, so that’s exactly what we did.  She also had to posh it up in our Avis Budget rental for the sake of … Continue reading

Moose Jaw Pizza & Brewing In Wisconsin Dells

Moose Jaw Pizza 04

While staying at The Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells a while back we encountered a car driving around town that had a moose on top of it.  Not a real moose  mind you as you might have to be in the Northwoods of Wisconsin to see that, but a prop moose.  Wanting to know what … Continue reading

The Safe House In Milwaukee, Where Getting Out Is A Maze…

Safe Exit 06

As mentioned yesterday, The Safe House in Milwaukee is a great place to go for lunch or dinner.  We forgot to mention that the food is just as good as the ambiance and fun of being in a spy themed place.  When you do finally get a chance to go there, make sure you ask … Continue reading

Milwaukee’s Safe House Is A Place Worth Finding, If You Can…

Safe House 05

We visited the Safe House in Downtown Milwaukee a short while back and found it to be one of the most fascinating restaurants in the entire state of Wisconsin.  It’s a mystery and spy themed place that has so much going on inside (and underneath) that it’s hard to get to all of it in … Continue reading

The Painted Steers Of New Glarus…

New Glarus Steer 03

When visiting New Glarus Brewery a while back (photos of the brewery coming soon), it was evident thay they love their steers, likely because of the Swiss heritage the town relishes, being known as Little Switzerland.  Further, our Minong friend Jack Link’s Beef Jerky also has a factory in New Glarus.  Whatever their reasons for … Continue reading
