Intermittent Pig Farmer On TV


A while back I filmed a piece with my friends from Wisconsin Public Television (I say a while back because those pigs are no longer extant and you will also note that my report on the spring weather doesn’t quite match up) and it aired Monday. I had some internet issues that prevented me from posting, but you can watch above, or here’s the link now.

Rehearsing for Today’s Symphony Event

CVYS rehearsal

Photo from last week’s rehearsal. Up this morning reviewing script, looking forward to joining the Chippewa Valley Youth Symphony for concert honoring veterans this afternoon at 3 p.m. If you’ve used the phrase “kids these days!” lately, you’ll want to see this bunch. Concert is at 3 p.m., Gantner Hall, Haas Fine Arts Center, UW-Eau Claire. Free admission for veterans. More information here.

Gasoline and Cuisine

I am not opposed to a little asparagus truffle foam now and again, but one never wishes to lose the common touch, and these right here were all the more delicious for being purchased at a truck stop. It’s yer subtle fresh mustard undertone that really pulls the whole deal together.
