It’s COOKOUT season…

First, one of my favorite events of all time, The Hodag Country Festival in Rhinelander has made the tough decision to postpone till next year. People may not realize what an undertaking it is for the…Read more »

Always Remember

Always Remember

I think it’s been said a million times or so but Memorial Day is identified with travel, parties, cookouts and the beginning of summer.

One of the most unique things I’m seeing online is people using it for special occasions. I…Read more »

Now I’m pissed!

Now I’m pissed!

Damn this Corona Virus! An event that I have attended for many years has called it for 2020. The EAA Airventure in Oshkosh has canceled this years event.

Safe At Home Activity

OK…I’m a geek! Watching the Starlink Satellites travel across the sky fascinates me. I’m finding that I’m not the only one. If you haven’t seen the “Satellite Train” yet it’s the perfect Safe At Home activity. I’ve posted the times the train goes over on my Facebook and have actually received a few messages thanking…Read more »

How’d Ya Do?

How’d Ya Do?

Thanks for the great comments on Saturdays “Jump Around Wisconsin”. I thought it was very cool to turn on the radio at 3 and hear all our stations synced up and playing House Of Pain! People seemed to like it in the Northwoods as I saw a bunch of postings (videos) on Facebook over the…Read more »
