Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

Both Sides of the Fence

A Tosa resident since 1991, Christine walks the dog, cooks but avoids housework, writes and reads, and enjoys the company of friends and strangers. Her job takes her around the state, learning about people's health. A Quaker (no, they don't wear blue hats or sell oatmeal or motor oil), she has been known to stand on both sides of the political and philosophic fence at the same time, which is very uncomfortable when you think about it. She writes about pretty much whatever stops in to visit her busy mind at the moment. One reader described her as "incredibly opinionated but not judgmental." That sounds like a good thing to strive for!

Fun & Fabulous First Church!

First Congregational Church is literally the FIRST church established in Wauwatosa, in 1842. Our roots go all the way back to the Pilgrims, who reached the New World in 1620 after hearing Jesus say, “Follow Me!” Today, we are modern pilgrims, searching together for a meaningful Christian experience in the 21st century. “Faith, Freedom, and Fellowship” are our core tenets, as we come together to worship, pray, and support one another; each in our own special, unique way. You can learn more about us at www.FirstChurchTosa.org or by attending a Sunday morning Worship Service or one of our many programs. All are welcome … we invite you to come see who we are, and learn what we are all about!
