summer time old fashions

We are big fans of the classic American mixed drink Old Fashions. One of our staff found an old recipe from the days when his great grandparents owned a tavern in rural Wisconsin. We thought we would share the wealth.

Cheers to the great days of summer everyone!

the high country

I have been in the high country of Colorado the past few days, in Teller County. I have spent lots of time up in these mountains and every time I am here, it’s as if I am seeing them for the first time. The view of Pikes Peak is breathtaking, the green and brown tall strong trees that line the rocky crags and all a while being warmed by the bright and beautiful Colorado sunshine. Some people call this place God’s Country and I would have to agree with a hearty “amen!”  If you have never visited this part of the country then you are missing out! Come in the summer and make sure to bring your road or mountain bike to experience the beauty first hand.

 I am only here for one more day and then back to our office in Milwaukee to pack up and head even further west to California for the  NAHBS.
