Freedom Water Tower

Wisconsin’s Very Own Freedom Tower, Well Sort Of

Freedom isn’t just a word, an ideology, or the name of a skyscraper in New York City, it’s also the name of a small town straight north of Appleton if you’re taking the back roads up to Green Bay.  It’s a fun little town to stop in on, and the local grocer (like every small … Continue reading

MORGUE Oneida 05

The Morgue Haunted House

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

Blacktop 01

Blacktop Back Road Beauty

Nothing much to say about these shots other than, damn Wisconsin can be beautiful to drive around.  Even the blacktop roads can be a thing of beauty.  Enjoy the summer travel views during this cold winter. * * * * * *

Fifield 01

Fifield – Phonetically Funny

Found these shots I took as I drove through the very tiny town of FiField and the name struck me as phonetically funny.  Of course Wisconsin is no stranger to odd sounding or hard to pronounce town names like Lac Du Flambeau (Yeah, we who love Lambeau Field understand that one, but to an outsider, … Continue reading

Cheese Underground Screen Shot

Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese

Here’s a killer article on cheese Terroir in the Drifless Region of Wiscosnin.  I’ve been to a good deal of these Dairies and Cheese producers, and I have to agree that the area has a taste all its own.  Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese. via Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese. * * *

Tank CU

A Tank In Every Town

Wiscosnin has a long-standing and deeply rooted respect for the military.  And in consideration of that, it’s of no surprise that just about every town small or big that I’ve been through around the state, I find that at one town park or another, or in the case of Fon Du Lac, the American Legion, … Continue reading

Impact 7 Building

A Snow Covered Small Town

Almena is a small town that you’ll miss if you blink off Highway 8 in Barron County.  One reason to keep your eyes open and pull over if traveling that way is the Almena Meat Company.  Try the double smoked beef snack sticks and, if you love smoked sausages, you’ll love these even more.  I … Continue reading

Some fun Cheesehead Nation photos from todays bummer playoff loss at Lambeau, including one of my good friend Jeff aka Frozen Tundra Man.

Tripoli Shrine FRONT

The Tripoli Shrine Center In Milwaukee

I took these shots on a snowy, gloomy day, so they don’t even come close to the dazzling nature of the Tripoli Shrine Center in Milwaukee.  Didn’t get a chance to go inside, which I hear is even more astounding, but will get around to that next time in Milwaukee. From the Tripoli Shrine Center … Continue reading

Brossman's Meats 02

The Best Beer Beef Stick Ever

While I’m feverishly editing my way towards the end of the documentary, I keep going through archives to find needed pictures, and every day I keep finding fun ones that had slipped my mind previously.  Here’s a great place in Racine, kind of hidden if you’re not looking for it, called Brossman’s Meats and they … Continue reading

Colonial Cheese 02

A Cheese House With Cows Outside

Happened to stop in, per my usual whenever I spot a cheese shop while traveling Wisconsin, and found the quant Colonial Cheese House in Wautoma.  Hard to miss what with the beautiful ceramic cows out front.  Of course what I really dug about the place, besides the cheese, was the Cheesehead memorabilia for sale, including … Continue reading

Minus 27 BRRR

Wisconsin Weather Gone Wild

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

King Of The North (Crop)

Fan Humor For The NFC North Champions 2013

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

Fox River GOOSE

Wildlife On The Fox River

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
