wisconsin: Maple Syrup - 11/09/09 08:47 AM
Maple syrup
The process of making maple syrup is an age-old tradition of the North American Indians, who used it both as a food and as a medicine. They would make incisions into trees with their tomohawks and use birch barks to collect the sap. The sap would be condensed into syrup by evaporating the excess water using one of two methods: plunging hot stones into the sap or the nightly freezing of the sap, following by the morning removal of the frozen water layer.
When the settlers came to North America, they were fascinated by this traditional process and in … (2 comments)

wisconsin: Fall Squirrel Hunting - 11/06/09 09:50 AM
Fall Squirrel Hunting
Sneaking through the forest in fall is a rewarding hunting technique that gives you the feeling you are outwitting and ambushing your prey.
 
 
This brand of squirrel hunting requires woodsmanship and a keen sense of hearing and eyesight. A silent approach requires stalking skills -- concentration on slipping silently through underbrush, calculating each footstep, selecting the best silent route through the forest -- while searching for game. It's not an easy task, but it's very exciting and rewarding. It requires agility, strength, coordination and attention to details as you silently glide along the forest floor.

wisconsin: Biggest Financial Investments, Real Estate - 10/20/09 10:49 AM
 

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estatewithout the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.

wisconsin: Why Hire A Professional Real Estate Agent - 10/19/09 08:04 AM

You don't need to know everything about buying and selling real estate if you hire a real estate professional who does. Henry Ford once said that when you hire people who are smarter than you are, it proves you are smarter than they are. The trick is to find the right person. For the most part, they all cost about the same. Why not hire a person with more education and experience than you? We're all looking for more precious time in our lives, and hiring a professional real estate agent gives you that time.
