It's the start of the holiday weekend people.
Like a classic muscle car this classic rocker never goes out of style. How does he do it?
“Mom, Mom, MOMMMMMMMMM!!!”
About 15 years ago, I practically heard this in my sleep. I admit it - it often drove me a little crazy.
Is there a greater pleasure than waking on a Monday morning to the low sound of thunder and, instead of getting out of bed, pulling up the comforter against the chill and reaching for a Stieg Larsson mystery?
During my long period of unemployment, I could have done this any rainy day. But it wouldn't have the savor of contrast with the normal workday routine. It wouldn't feel like a holiday, an almost-guilty delight. Or conversely, a reward for the good and hard paid work I do some 50 hours each week.
Look both ways! Always expect a train. Trains can run on any track, at any time, in either direction. After a train passes, look both ways before proceeding.
Don’t get stuck on the tracks! Before you cross, be sure there is room on the other side to completely clear the tracks. Trains overhang the tracks by at least 3 feet on each side. For safety, leave at least 15 feet between your vehicle and the nearest rail.
It's the start of the weekend.
And no better time to settle-back and dig some Robert Earl Keen Band.
If you don't read paper anymore, in book or periodical form, read no further.
But if you're one of us who still likes the feel and pliability of paper, who can remember a time when all the families in the neighborhood got not just one of Milwaukee's newspapers but the Sentinel in the morning and the Journal in the evening, come sit here on the complaint couch right next to me.
Fall is in the air.
The weekend before last it got down to an overnight low of 39 degrees up north.
I embarrassed my daughter this weekend.
On Saturday morning, the Tosa East marching band kicked off the day's activities at Tosa Fest with a stirring rendition of "Glorious," the selection that it will play for the Queen of England in London on New Year's Day 2011, followed by a rousing rendition of Tosa East's school song, "Hail, Wauwatosa." My 15 year-old daughter, who plays flute in the band, was horrified to see her father stand for the playing of the school song.
A plan to provide $12 million in city funds to help pay for University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's proposed Innovation Park development in Wauwatosa has just received approval from the city Plan Commission.
The commission recommended approval on a 5-1 vote at the Monday night meeting. The financing plan will next go to the Common Council's Budget and Finance Committee at its Tuesday meeting, and then to the full council on Sept. 21.
When a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee contingent came to the Wauwatosa Plan Commission meeting Monday night, seeking approval for city funds to help pay for UWM's proposed Innovation Park development, it was more than just an administrator or two who showed up.
Along with just-named Interim Chancellor Michael Lovell, eight faculty members spoke in favor of the financing plan - with all but one of them coming from the College of Engineering and Applied Science, where Lovell is dean.
Wisconsin's bow season opens this coming Saturday.
My pals Braumeister, Smokey Joe and I have drawn and fired countless arrows at videos and paper targets. My bow has been tuned and re-tuned again. The cammo has been laundered in scent-free detergent and packed-away with the scent of dirt. Same for the underwear. And I'm getting all itchy about the prospects for this year's hunt.

It is six months following the Feast Day of St. Patrick - so I bring you an appropriate tune.
I don't know about the rest of you but I am going deer hunting. And will be sporting a camouflage veil...
When the Belgian immigrants came to this country one of the traditions they brought with them was the Kermis.
Derived from the words - Church Mass - Kermis has its roots in the celebration of the fall harvest. Much of the celebration was centered around the local church.
Tonight, the Wauwatosa Common Council will make a historic decision. It will vote on a proposal to create a tax incremental financing (TIF) district for an 89-acre parcel on the County Grounds to be purchased by UW-Milwaukee from Milwaukee County.
All Are Welcome!
Do you have what it takes to knock off the winner from last year?
