    Good Wednesday to you!

    Things are getting chilly around this chunk of Wisconsin, and that means events and happenings start to, ahem, heat up. Get it? Cold ... hot ... yeah.

    Anyway! There're enough art tours out there to choke a horse, so if you like art (and driving around an autumn-hued Wisconsin), you are in luck, my friends. Although, nowadays, you might want take the scooter out to all those studios and save some gas.

   Hey! Here's something you might have missed – the Community Pool. It's a communal blog that anyone (that means you) can post on to talk about anything you want. You can talk about events, opinions, everything. And the newest post will always show up on's homepage.

    Right on.
