Not Pictured

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!

 

 

I was born and raised in and around Milwaukee Wisconsin and while I have since moved away for the better weather and mountains of Boulder Colorado I still miss certain things about my home town. I received an email from a friend back home that reminded me of what I miss and a few of the reasons I moved.

In the spirt of Jeff Foxworthy:

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 38
inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might
live in Wisconsin.

If you may not have actually eaten it, but you have heard of "head
cheese", you might live in Wisconsin.

If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you might live in
Wisconsin.

If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, you might live in
Wisconsin.

If you know how to say Oconomowoc, Waukesha , Menomonee, Manitowoc ,
and lac du flambeau, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you can drive 65 mph. Through 2 feet of snow during a raging
blizzard, without flinching, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you see people wearing camouflage at social events
(including weddings and funerals), you might live in Wisconsin.

If you think of the major food groups as beer, fish, and venison, you
might live in Wisconsin.

If you design your kid's halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you
might live in Wisconsin.

If you refer to the packers as "we", you might live in wisconsin .

If you know how to polka, you might live in Wisconsin

If your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer next to your
blue spruce, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you were unaware that there is a legal drinking age, you might live
in Wisconsin.

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you might live
in Wisconsin.

If you find minus twenty degrees "a little chilly", you might live in
Wisconsin.

If you actually understand these jokes,
and you forward them to all your Wisconsin friends, you do live in
Wisconsin.
