Jillene’s Blog: Bucky on Parade

By now, you’ve probably seen at least one Bucky on Parade statue. They’ll be on display throughout Madison through mid-September, so if you haven’t had a chance to marvel at their beauty, you still have plenty of time. Like many Madisonians, I’ve been having fun finding them around town and

Jillene’s Blog: The Birds Need Our Help

Jillene’s Blog: April Birthdays

This week’s spring snowfall brought up a memory from my childhood. My birthday is at the end of April, and one year it snowed on my birthday. As a kid in the Midwest, I knew it probably wouldn’t totally ruin the birthday party that was planned for the same day,

Jillene’s Blog: Making Prom Dreams Come True

When I was in high school, I came very close to missing my senior prom. I didn’t have a yearning desire to go, I didn’t have a date, and I didn’t have a dress. But that all quickly changed for me, just days before the big event. I had a

Jillene’s Blog: Childhood Phone Number

“Do you remember your childhood phone number?” I recently asked my Facebook friends this question and was overwhelmed at the number of people who do! I remember mine, perfectly. I remember when we had to add three digits to it too. Our suburbs had outgrown the number of phone numbers

Jillene’s Blog: My Million-Dollar Idea

If I had a nickel for every time someone said to me, “You’re from Minnesota/Wisconsin! You should be used to the cold,” I’d have a big bag of nickels. Has anyone ever said that to you? As Midwesterners, we don’t get used to the cold. We just live with it.
