A Waukesha Carnival 2-10-2008

by thoughtfulconservative

Time again for another edition. Listed below are those posts I found most interesting and thought provoking, or were submitted via Blog Carnival. You can read past editions here or click on Waukesha Carnival under “Categories” on the left hand side of the page. You can submit a post for future editions here or e-mail me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com.

David B. Bohl submits a post entitled, If You Don?t Do It Now, You?ll Regret It Later. David has a 262 area code and submitted a post before that I didn’t use. Here’s some of what he said,

“I’m a relatively happy guy, but sometimes I can get pretty out of sorts. Usually that is related to something I’ve been meaning to do, or always wanted to do. Something, of course, that remains on my “to do” list, and never quite makes it to my did list.”

Then we’ve got additions to the Waukesha part of the blog roll, some long overdue. First, Blog Waukesha (hat tip to Spring City Chronicle). Then courtesy of Hobo Springs blog roll we have Homemaker’s Guide to the Galaxy and silent e has started a new site Wales Wisconsin which is bloggish in character. silent e tells us it’s informational, so no bomb throwing.

Then let’s do a picture. Bryan Houlgrave, a photographer for the Waukesha Freeman, has an interesting one of a truck stuck in last week’s snow on the corner of Barstow and South.

Then let’s take care of our elected officials. Mayor Nelson posts about an event Monday, Feb. 11, with the mayor, Gov. Doyle, and officials from the Barack Obama campaign. I would love to go, but I am not undecided about the fact that I will not be voting for Barack Obama.

Sen. Mary Lazich (Kevin Fischer?) writes about keeping the estate tax dead.

Jeff wrote at Eat Wisconsin about his visit to North Star American Bistro. Then on his Five Points Blog he covers the fire at the Wisconsin House last week.

Speaking of the fire, Curt Otto, whose business is just down the street, had some pictures of the scene.

UPDATE: I overlooked DarrylEnriquez’s coverage of the fire which can be found here and here.

Fox Head opines about Global Warming, particularly the lack of practical sense.

Sancho, posting at Hobo Springs, gives us another “Hobo Sandwich,” his carnival. On La Raza de Waukesha, he shares his reasoning over not voting for John McCain.

Pete Fanning was at the Defending the American Dream conference on Saturday and gave a report in two posts at peterepublic. As a side note, Steveegg, the king of southeastern Wisconsin live blogging, live blogged the whole thing. You can find his posts here.

Kyle Prast, writing at Practically Speaking, muses about Super Tuesday and the future. Troy Fullerton at Rendezvous with Destiny also shared his thoughts about last Tuesday’s results in the presidential primaries.

Staying on the presidential race, Scott Feldstein sums up his thoughts on the upcoming race in two pictures and 11 words!

silent e posted a political cartoon he swiped from Ol’ Broad. It sums up the feelings of many of us in the Republican party toward our presumptive nominee.

And in one more post, James Wigderson gives his opinion on James Dobson’s endorsement of Mike Huckabee.

Lisa, blogging at Sequentially Speaking, shares a post with a few links to happenings in the comic book/gaming/movie world.

Spring City Chronicle dumps on the proposed smoking ban in Wisconsin.

Finally, Wiggy shares an old family recipe for ground hog. Oh, maybe it’s not. Looks tasty. Waukesha Winnie should watch her back.

Whew! That’s it for this week. As usual, you can leave your choices in the comment section or e-mail them to me at the address above.
