Month: November 2014

I really enjoy taking short day trips to see the rest of the state of Wisconsin.  In particular, I find Viroqua extra fun because I get the best honey in the state from Jim Krause who keeps his hives there.  Nothing even comes close to his bees.    There is a great second hand shop, […]

I have a personal blog that’s mostly about music but sometimes about radio and occasionally about other things, and I hope you’ll click over and read it sometime.
