Add puppets for a fresh approach to healthcare marketing
When someone mentions puppets, what do you think of? Mayhem and explosions on "The Muppet Show?" Cows and sheep breaking into song on "Sesame Street?" Me too! I’ve been a puppeteer and fan for years, never expecting that these lumps of felt and foam would make inroads into my working world.

It's spring in Wisconsin which means that the first couple of ball games can be a bit chilly. Plan ahead and whip up this tasty recipe for your early-season tailgate parties!
I spent time traveling the great state of Wisconsin producing a travelogue show in the past. In every town I would grab a cup of chili at one of the local establishments. It’s really hard to screw up chili and I found some of the best cups at the diviest bars in northern Wisconsin. You'll find variations of the classic: some have spaghetti noodles, some throw in last night’s prime rib leftovers and some just flat out go for the hotness 🌶️ factor.
