Appleton Farmers Market Has Something for All, + 2 for 1 Food Stamp/Quest Card Tokens

City center for top For years now Farmers Markets throughout the nation have provided locally grown, healthy and sustainable Farmers Market Appleto Appleton Cntr Dec 21 13 (22)food and locally handmade products for the locals.  This is not just an American trend, but a worldwide one.   Although the corporate food stuff manufacturers have at times tried to limit such competition, through the  Farmers Market Appleto Appleton Cntr Dec 21 13 (48) power of the people, and the simple quality of the products, the locals have prevailed.

Here in Appleton there is a vibrant Farm Market every Saturday morning at the City Center Plaza in the winter, and during the summer over 4 city blocks of vendors take over the downtown area to offer their wares.   The summer event even includes live music in the recently dedicated Houdini Plaza.

Open during the hours of 9am to 12:30 pm, the entire atmosphere is Farmers Market Appleto Appleton Cntr Dec 21 13 (12)one  of splendid delight.  In the video below, I interview Djuanna of Appletondowntown.org as she explains the finer details of the market, how one goes about getting a booth, the other offers such as offering two for one tokens on Quest Card/foodstamp cards.  This is a great opportunity for those who are on a limited budget to purchase very high quality food at a great price.

A Little video and a Burger from Madison’s Capitol Square

This is not my best video, but I thought it was a decent example of the lowlight performance capabilities of my current camera.    No way this could be done with a basic camcorder with available light.    Edited with the free Video Pad Editor.  Basic, but it works.

Christmas Morning Views of the The Fox River from the Oneida Street Bridge

fox morning top As I was unable to sleep a wink on Christmas eve and morning, I packed up my gear and engaged in the best therapy I know … a “Phosari”, or photo IMG_1767safari.  I always really get into low IMG_1729light and nighttime photography, which has always been sort of a specialty for me.

Hope you enjoy the slide show below.

Sights and Scenes of Appleton II

ss 2 top

Here is another group of recent shot from Downtown Appleton.  I haven’t even begun to explore the areas IMG_0697 closer to the river as well as some of the outer areas.  IMG_0710

I am hoping that the weather holds out long enough that I can get to the outer areas before the snow gets too thick.  I my older years, I am just not as tough as I used to think that I was.

Bargain City … More than Just a Name

Bargain City for top
Now I don’t usually promote private business, but when a business is exceptionally helpful, and downright nice to the point I end up shakingBargain City wow (22) my head in wonder, that’s when I just have to take action.
When shopping there is always the rigid pricing system, poor customer service, and most likely clerks and sales folks that don’t know a hoot about the products that they sell, and justBargain City wow (21) want to get back to the break room as fast as possible.  That is the reality of big box corporate retail today.  Get em in, get  their money, and get em out, as fast as possible.
It’s always inspirational (and in this case cost effective) when one finds a store by humans, of humans, and for humans.  The store Bargain City, located at 1930 West College Avenue, Appleton, WI 54914, it just such a store.  Although it won’t take a bus ride to get to one side from the other like a Wally Mart Super store, they carry everything from Dry Goods to HolidayBargain City wow (31) and gift items.  Featuring … Coats, Trinkets, Dolls, Foods, Tools, Green Bay Packer Items, Knives, Swords, Paint, Jewelry, reading and sun glasses, fans, gift ideas, greeting and gift cards, Christmas and holiday Items, statues, electronic games, Santa Clause thingies, Guitars (Ibanez S body), and the list could go on and on.   So if your in the market … for just about anything at a reasonable price in a nice friendly down home simple shopping environment, beBargain City wow (88) sure to check our Bargain City first, then to if you can’t find it there, then to to the big corporate store.
Good luck, and good bargain hunting!
Be sure to check out the slide show below to see what the store looks like!

New Methods and Small Dogs.

As I adjust to mobile work again, I am once again breaking new ground, learning new methods and developing new work flow.   From a mobile, portable (USB based) video editing program, tDSCN9111o a more artistic approach to shooting.  Of course trying to do it without it being too obvious.   I am eager to put Newby for posting 2some of these new methods to use in future and upcoming projects that concern the environment and sustainable living.  

Look to a report soon on the History of Pulaski, WI.  A recent visit to the Pulaski Historical Society’s Local Museum proved to be quite interesting.  I received a great tour and many details on some very interesting events in Pulaski’s past.  I hope to have something out on that within the next few weeks.  I am still working on a report on motorized bicycles as well.  Of course, both reports will feature photos and video, and be on Wisconsin Confidential.
