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
We had a fun time doing a screening at the Wisco Hotels (www.wiscohotels.com) Lake Winnebago Conference Center at the Holiday Inn in Fond du Lac.

They have some amazing cool Wisconsin Cheese as well, including bacon infused cheese curds like I’ve not seen anywhere else. Not only do they have great Wisconsin Cheese, but … Continue reading
