Bye-bye summer and hello glorious autumn. As I write this week’s blog, I am looking out my third-floor office window at some changing elms, maples and birch trees.

Hello friends. Welcome to my 10th blog post. I had a bit of bad news this past week. One of my favorite restaurants almost burned down. Shipwrecked Pub in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin had a fire in the second floor, but luckily it was contained. They said they will rebuild, which is good news, because it […]
