Fun With Fundraisers UWBC

We did a show at the UWBC Campus in Rice Lake as a fundraiser for the Barron County Historical Museum (located in Cameron), since I’ve always been a big fan of that place, having been there dozens of of times in my youth.  We raised a bit of money, had fun hanging with Chester Marcol, … Continue reading

Grown Local Going Global

These are from an event we did right around the time of the nationwide release of the documentary (March 11th, 2017).  Lots of fun and food and of course a film.  Did a fun interview with a reporter from The Spectator (UWEC), at some TV coverage from WEAU 13 news.  What a busy but terrific … Continue reading

Shell Lake Arts Center Event

Join us for the Shell Lake Arts Center showing of the documentary on April 1st, 2017.  No, this is not an April Fools Day joke, and yes, that tiny town in Northwest Wisconsin does have an arts center as it is quite the artistic, art driven town.  Hope to see you there. * * * … Continue reading

Richard Bong Museum Is The Bomb

I love this place in Superior, a terrific museum the celebrates our Wisconsin veterans, especially WWII Ace Of Aces Richard Bong (born in Poplar).  We did a segment on him in the original cut of the film that sadly was cut, but it will see life elsewhere.  And we hope to do a screening in … Continue reading

A Hometown Reception

Things went quite well for our return to Cameron “Hometown” showing of the film.  My best count was about 140 plus in attendance.  Not bad for a small town in the Northwoods.  People really enjoyed the film while snacking on Ellsworth cheese curds, Nuseke’s amazing bacon, Cheese Brothers cheese, and more.   We’d also like … Continue reading

Back To Where It All Began

From the Rose Bowl 2011 to Super Bowl XLV, the journey really began in a small sleeper town in the Great Northwoods of Wisconsin where I learned how to study and think creatively.  My love of travel was inspired by the many family trips we took around Wisconsin as a kid.  The love of Wisconsin … Continue reading

Northwoods Brewing Company (Eau Claire)

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

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

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

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

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
