Wisconsin Cows…

5star-banner  Sometimes 5star images including the one below come from overlooked places. When we do our annual visit to northern Wisconsin to see the in-laws my brother-in-law takes us on a leisurely trip into the hinterland. On one of those recent trips we came across a herd of dairy cows and stopped to say hello.

Since Wisconsin is known as the “Dairy State” this scene is somewhat common.  I enjoyed our “up close and personal” visit to my dairy producing friends and I kind of think this picture is well deserved of its 5star Status

Something About Domes…

Milwaukee State Capital DomeI don’t think I am the only one but I am one who is fascinated by capital dome art. Almost every State capital has a dome on its top. This one came from the Capital of Wisconsin in Madison.  I wonder how many hours were spent by someone in a  Micheal Angelo position painting these guys. One of my long-term projects over at InSearchOfAmerica is to do a catalog of all the capitals we have visited.

House On The Rock…

House On The Rock in southern Wisconsin is a very unique and strange place to visit. There are rooms after rooms of things that spike the imagination. It is definitely an “out of the box”, “over the wall” or whatever you want to call it place… 🙂

Cows, Cheese, Brats &….

Wisconsin Cows-1

Northern Wisconsin – Cows

Of course farming and dairy are very much a part of the heart of America. What State do you think of when you see cows?  Usually, except for my west coast friends, it is Wisconsin. My wife was born there so we return often. She recently got a refrigerator magnet there that proclaimed that Wisconsin is Cows, Cheese, Brats, & Beer. That isn’t very far off the mark for how I see it…

Mustard Museum??

Madison, WI – Mustard Museum

Who would have thought that mustard is very American. If you don’t believe me just visit the Mustard Museum in Madison to see how many companies there are in the U.S. that make mustard.  There are literally thousands of jars there from around the country and the world.
