03 SWISS COLONY 05

The Swiss Colony Tradition

Who knew that the world famous “The Swiss Colony” magazine order (and now internet) company was from Wisconsin?  Well I did even as a child, but living in California for so long, it was always awesome to see the Swiss Colony magazine in friends houses, though they had no idea it was a Wisconsin based … Continue reading

West Allis Cheese Fun With Friends

We had a great deal of fun hanging out at West Allis Cheese & Sausage shop in West Allis this time, signing DVD’s and listening to some great music.  Loved seeing Bruce, Ryan, and Eric again, and of course West Allis Cheese head cheeser Mark and his crew.  Love this place. * * *

A Part Of Lawrence University History

We had a fun time screening the film at the amazingly beautiful Lawrence University Warch Center on an even more gorgeous campus that has been a part of Wisconsin since, well before Wisconsin was even a state (1847), though despite it’s founding then, first classes were not held until the fall of 1849. Needless to … Continue reading

Carthage College Campus

When in Kenosha, visit Carthage College (if you can find it).  It’s a coastline beauty of a campus on the shores of Lake Michigan.  Nestled off the road behind an arboretum (see photos), it’s a stunner of a campus, a hidden gem, and tranquil as eternity.  Okay, I’m overreaching like writers often do, but I … Continue reading

Lake Michigan K01

Follow You Own Footprint

What a peaceful way to spend an hour, or a day if you have the time.  Great shots of Lake Michigan from the shores of Kenosha. * * *

Fun With Beer & Cheese In Monroe

We had a pleasant evening at the Minhas Craft Brewery in Monroe.  And how could you not with Ellsworth Cheese Curds, Nueske’s meats, and Minhas Craft Beer!  Well sure, top that with a movie and you’ve got a great evening.  I was also delighted to get our Cheeseheads: The Beer placed on their shelves of … Continue reading

Trinity Lutheran Church Milwaukee.  What a beautiful building.  Enough said. * * * * * *

RC Bart Starr Curious Again

Homage To Frank Lloyd Wright

Well you can’t make a movie with Frank Lloyd Wright in it and not have a showing in the birthplace of such a legend, Richland Center.  So that’s what we did.  It was a fun night despite the democratic party convention down the street stealing half of my audience, but I got to hang with … Continue reading

Gordy’s Got It Goin’

We had some fun putting up a display at Gordy’s Eau Claire West a while back (just now catching up on a massive backlog of photos). * * * * * *

Manitowoc Moo-vie Magic

We had a terific time in Manitowoc with over 200 people showing up for the film sreening at the Capitol Civic Centre in Downtown Manitowoc.  What an awesome building and a great event.  When the show started, it was snowing like crazy, but by the time it ended, the sun was out and it was … Continue reading

GOOSE Manitowoc 03

Friendly Manitowoc Goose

This goose (or is it geese) was rather welcoming to me taking a few photos of it next to the Badger Ferry in Manitowoc.  He (she) seemed to think I was the unwelcomed guest, but ignored me all the same. * * *

West Allis Cheese 03

West Allis Cheese Is Awesome

I Love going to West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shop whenever I am in Milwaukee (both the one in West Allis, and the other in Milwaukee Public Market).  Lots of cheeses from around Wisconsin, but more importantly amazing sandwiches for lunch.  And yes, all of them have cheese on it in some way.  I usually … Continue reading
