Ten Wonderful Wisconsin Oddities

Confused Arrows ELEVA

The title says it rather clearly, these are ten shots of some of the wonderful oddities I’ve encountered in my travels around Wisconsin making this documentary (that is now finished, working on release screenings and dates for this fall).  There’s a little note below each photo to let you know a bit about it. * … Continue reading

Wisconsin Senate Approves 70 MPH Speed Limit

Featured Image -- 4496

Nice to know, if you’re trying to get somewhere fast, but I prefer to drive the back roads of Wisconsin as you never know what you’ll find, be it interesting, odd, or fun. And then there’s that whole “it’s so utterly beautiful” thing. * * * * * *

Driving The Driftless

White Barn WOW

Here’s some killer shots I took while driving the Driftless Area recently.  On a sunny day, it’s really hard not to take a good picture in this state.  Honestly, it’s pointless in talking about it.  Just look at the photos and you’ll see what I mean.  So I’ll stop babbling now and let you enjoy … Continue reading

WISCO Holiday Inn Express Opening Soon

Wisco Holiday Inn  EXPRESS

Here’s some shameless plugging for my favorite hotel chain, Wiscohotels.com – I’ll be in FDL for the grand opening of their new Holiday Inn Express at the end of April.  Looking forward to checking out their new location, and to get the now finished (minus legal and what not) documentary in front of a crowd. … 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

Snow On Trees (Hey, It’s Winter)

Snow On Trees LD

No words really needed here.  I just find snow on trees fascinating and beautiful.  Trees are awesome no matter, snow on them makes it even better. * * * * * *

Northwoods Brewing Company (Eau Claire)

NW Brew Pub EXT01

Had a chance to visit the Northwoods Brewing Company in Eau Claire, which is inside the Northwoods Brew Pub (Near Oakwood Mall).  Great beer, great atmosphere, and if it had been summer, a grea view of the river.  Love the decor of this place, real Northwoods (of course), almost like something out of Twin Peaks … Continue reading

Packers-Themed Snow Sculptures Created in Downtown Menasha

We should be seeing a lot of this during the week as it’s getting warmer here and we Cheeseheads have to represent with what we have on hand.

Snow Plow Splash On Windshield

Snow Plow Splash

Driving Highway 25 near Rice Lake and happened to get a dash-cam shot of a snow plow doing its job, and splashing my window. * * * * * *

Nice Houses In New Richmond

New Richmond Houses 03

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. * * * * * *

Gordon Set To Carry Load For Badgers In Title Game

Melvin Gordon, Cedric Thompson

No surprise there.

Waukesha School Renamed For Music Icon Les Paul

Featured Image -- 4370

Only fitting, considering he was and will always be the Wizard Of Waukesha.

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. *** ***

Badger Bars & Tavern Tales, Fun For Everyone

More Badger Bar Tales

I met Bill Moen, the author of these two humorous and fascinating Wisconsin Bar stories books, at the Valkyrie Brewery in Dallas (Dallas WISCONSIN, that is). For any lover of good humor, these books are great.  If you love humor, beer, and Wisconsin history in all of its often odd realms, then these are a … Continue reading

Yummies From New London

Sara Lee NL 05

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

Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival Fun

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
