Waukesha Carnival – Inauguration Edition

by thoughtfulconservative

Welcome to this weeks edition of the carnival. Yes, I’m late. Apologies. It’s tax time and unlike Tim Geithner, I know what I need to do, so the process has started. Oh, and I think there was an inauguration or something today.

Let’s start off with national politics. Huckleberry Dumbell at his post at the Spring City Chronicle shares his thoughts on Global Warming Climate Change.

Dad29 notes a Russ Feingold question of Hillary Clinton. What did that have to do with foreign affairs?

Tim at The Other Side of My Mouth notes some Bush bloopers. I love the dude but he could mess up the English language.

At Practically Speaking, Kyle Prast  wondered how Dixon Elementary was saving so much on natural gas usage. Kyle blogs plenty about Elmbrook School District stuff, if you live in the area.

Cindy Kilkenny published Elmbrook Schools’ superindendent Matt Gibson’s email on school consolidation at Fairly Conservative.

A little further west, James Wigderson says its time to end the Pabst Farms fantasy in a post at Wigderson Library & Pub. If liberals and conservatives agree, can it last very long?

In general stuff, Tom Gehl at Brookfield Basics gives us a tribute to retired Indianapolis Colts coach, Tony Dungy. He is an example to us all.

Dan Diebert is a 24 junkie also. He discusses the season thus far (before last Monday’s episode) and Jack’s kill count thus far at The D Spot.

MommaBlogger at Homemaker’s Guide to the Galaxy shares her experience at Iron Cupcake Milwaukee. Oh, and a nice little recipe for Apple Pancake Cupcakes.

Scott Feldstein had a post on morality and how those who don’t believe in God look at it. Some great comments. I disagree with Scott, but not on the fact that morality is a common problem, even if we don’t come to the same conclusion.

Blogs on the move. Bryon Houlgrave has moved his blog to WordPress. He posts some fine pictures.

Brian Fraley announced at Daily Takes that he was going on hiatus. We found out why.

Finally, Curt Otto has a question for us at Maple & Main. Well, an answer first, Two Thousand Five Hundred Forty Six. Here’s the story:

But last week, a student came to me and shared the most remarkable fact ever. And what made it even more spectacular was that she figured it out on her own.

It was an answer to an age old question- a question that has been asked for as long as I have been alive.

That’s it for this edition. If you have a post you liked, put it in the comments. Do the same for a post you’d like to submit for next week’s carnival. Or use this handy form. Past posts are archived here.

Waukesha Carnival – between Xmas and New Year

by thoughtfulconservative

The “Xmas” above is intentional because I do like to be provocative.

But onto the matter at hand, the best posts from the Waukesha section of the Cheddarsphere as decided by me. Feel free to add links to your favorite posts in the comments or e-mail them to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Let’s start with posts with a local theme, Josh at Blog Waukesha is anticipating the opening of the Menard’s across the street from Home Depot.

From his spot at Wigderson Library & Pub, James Wigderson compares all the openings in downtown Waukesha with the “dead in the water” Pabst Farms development. James Rowen would be proud. I think.

In general political postings, Dad29 gives us his observations of DUI checkpoints.

At A Little Off Main, Alexander  gives us a 23 minute flash post.

Kyle Prast, blogging at Practically Speaking, was glad to see the word Christmas in some retail advertising.

In the custom of the New Year, Scott Feldstein gives us his ten favorite posts of the past year.

Huckleberry Dumbell, editor and publisher of the Spring City Chronicle, gives us a politically correct Christmas poem.

Wisconsin state senator Mary Lazich (Aide Kevin Fischer?) who blogs at Conservatively Speaking wonders if Santa is conservative.

Lastly, non political posts. Cindy Kilkenny shares an interesting dream she had recently. You can read about it at Fairly Conservative.

Tim Rock is giving us the Top Ten Canadian songs in no particular order at The Other Side of My Mouth. Suggestions are welcome. I trust the pause in posting more has been due to Christmas activities.

That’s it for this week. You can submit a post whether you wrote it or someone else wrote it. I will accept posts written by Waukesha county bloggers or about Waukesha county activities/politics. There are several ways you can get these to me. You can put the link in a comment on this post. You can send an e-mail to the e-mail mentioned above. Or you can use this submission form. Past posts and future editions can be found here.

A Waukesha Carnival edition 9

by thoughtfulconservative

The rally at the capitol was the big news and was covered by the following Waukesha-based blogs (there are others also):

Dad29 (and here), silent e had several posts, many with pictures, as did the Asian Badger who flew in (imagine beating all that traffic!).

David at Carrick Bend Thoughts had a post which caused me to think about how much those who favor a
federalization of Iraq are giving Turkey the idea that they could make their excursion into Iraq against the Kurds.

Jeff at Five Points Blog looks at religious buildings and zoning, especially in relationship to the proposed mosque in Pewaukee.

Sancho rants at Hobo Springs about band competition judging.

Jessica McBride gives her good, bad and very bad on the state budget.

Pete Fanning informs us about what is happening in Tennessee since their rise in the cigarette tax.

Lisa at Sequentially Speaking tells us about some cool upcoming stuff.

The Spring City Chronicle fisked the piece in the Waukesha Freeman on regional transit.

Scott Feldstein shares a video and tells us why he doesn’t follow politicians around.

Fox Head has a long post on schools. Yes, it’s long. Yes, it’s important.

Tim at The Other Side of My Mouth gives us a delightful three act play, his version of Harvey.

You can catch up with Fletch at Two Heroes.

Jim Bouman at Water Blogged in Waukesha writes an letter to Laura Walker of the Journal Sentinel over her opinions on the Pabst Farm interchange.

James Wigderson gives the Waukesha School Board ideas for saving money.

Yorick’s Persiflage opines that Social Security will not be around when he needs it. His post also includes thoughts on Carroll University College and morning people.

The MyCommunityNOW blogs have been updated to allow comments and they now have feeds. Here are some pertinent ones: The Right Side of New Berlin (Matt Thomas), Conservatively Speaking  (State Sen. Mary Lazich), New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government, Brookfield City News (Cindy Kilkenny), Thinking Out Loud, Common Ground, Takin’ the Blog for a Walk, Wake Up! Waukesha, Maple & Main, Inside New Berlin, Environmental Stewards, As I See It (New Berlin alderman Joe Poshepny), Pauls’ Falls, Public Trough, Balancing Brookfield, Practically Speaking, and Land Savers. Some of these post periodically, some once a week, some several times a week, others rarely. More are added periodically.

Well, that’s it again for this week. Again if you have a suggestion, know a Waukesha County blogger not on my blog roll, or have read a blogger’s take on happenings in Waukesha (usually the water problem and sprawl issues are most likely), let me know, either by email at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com or in the comments.
