Good Coffee, Good Food, and Really Great Service at the Coffee Landing Café Last week I called a friend and client of ours in International Falls Minnesota who I had not seen in a while and suggested that we get together while I was in town. He suggested the Coffee Landing Café, though he had no...
I agree Lou, no time like the present to get started. This is a quote that I have had on my wall for many years.  “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.”  Chinese proverb     The Best Time to Plan for Your Future  “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years a...
    Moose may look all warm and cuddly like a cow, but they are not. Many of my friends ask questions like “how do you protect yourself from bears out there?”.  I answer that bears are seldom a problem, and certainly not worth carrying a heavy gun around for, but the Moose can be a real problem. ...
I really like this post from Praful Thakkar , in the age of mergers and acquisitions and the concerns that arise in the shadow of the giants like T, Z, and even R, it is comforting to know that the family of A's really have nothing to worry about as long as they continue to do what A's do best.

It is essential to do your pruning or any other work around your oaks during the season when the Picnic Beetles are dormant from November through March.       We are c...
Keep an eye on your Dogs while traveling in Northern Wolf Country. As many of you know we have been working in and camping in some fairly intense Wolf country this winter and of course keeping an eye on the dogs. Drake had to stay home at the office, but Jack got to come along. The one condition ...
I enjoyed this post from Wayne Johnson this week for many reasons, not just the political humor, but also the cute pictures of the turkeys and what they have to say about the situation. Enjoy! For how long can the blame game go on?   There is no shortage of things that don't go as planned. Servic...
Vilas County Wisconsin; 514 Thousand Acres of Boreal Forest Beauty.      Vilas County, just north of Oneida County, is also in the heart of tourist country in Northeastern Wisconsin, and there is a reason why the tourists flock here.  Superior beauty, ample wildlife, and great forestland. It is a...
