  2. Happy Fourth of July to you too, Jeanette! Am listening to the neighborhood go nuts with fireworks right now, but the trees covered the real show tonight. I'll try to remember this Wednesday.

  8. Lots of great patriotic images. We returned from our Colorado reunion by driving back to Illinois. After a night in LaCrosse we cut to the south through Rockford, so I still have never seen Madison.

    1. I went to school in LaX, it's one of my favorite places on earth, LOTS of memories although last time through it had grown so much. Lots to do in Madtown, it deserves some time, but I spent most of my down time in Lake Mills, Baraboo and Sauk Prairie over the last few days. Am thankful along with pretty much the entire northside they moved Rhythm and Booms. Colorado is a pretty cool place from what I've seen of it, Kenneth, that's a like of driving.

  18. I enjoyed this very much ... A fun celebration. Grandson who just graduated from UO (Oregon) told us yesterday that he is looking at a job possibility in Madison ... Everybody at the table reacted " not Wisconsin, oh no". He knew though that Madison is a bit of sanity in gov walkers madness. And we do know that there are good people everywhere! (we loved the State when we RVd there -- for its beauty! I'm off to read about the Mac and cheese pizza guy.

    1. Oh really, Sally? Is he a duck, haha? I spent a little time in Eugene and travelled down hwy 1 to northern California. The table's reaction was for that asshat, Walker? Madison is compared to places like Eugene, Berkley, Austin, one of the few places I'd want to live, but very tough to find a job, so congrats on that one. I would LUV to travel this state and beyond in an RV, something I always wanted to do. I thought it ironic that Ian's made enough money to open new locations after giving away free 'zza everyday. They became famous for it and people from around the world called in orders to feed the demonstrators. It was a wild time back in 2011, lots of free food downtown, too bad for the homeless it ended.

  27. Thanks Lisa, I didn't want to offend anyone with the Madison hippie wrapped in the flag during a pro Union demonstration, but then again that screams patriotism to me. I thought the snow smacked of the American Revolution.
