What a wonderful weekend. Thanks for being a part of it with WRJO. Amy and I met so many of you out and about. We saw old friends and listeners and met a whole buch of new listeners and friends.  

Bucher Blues Fest was a huge hit and we thank everyone for coming out to it. If you did not get any of the pulled pork nachos…Shame-Shame, I told you to get there early! The ribs, corn, pulled pork, was all heavenly. We have also posted a 3 minute You tube video on the homepage of our website to relive the day http://www.wrjo.com/.

This weekend we are proud to be a part of the Arbor Vitae Fireman's Picnic / Summerfest. This event has been going on for 36 years and is a dandy. Food, music, prizes, food, lawn mower races, fireworks, did I mention food? Join Amy and I for a live broadcast from 12p-3p on Saturday afternoon. For all the info go to
http://www.arborvitaefiredept.org/custom.html?id=16565.  This is how the department gives back to the community in a couple of ways. #1, it is a hell of a fun picnic that brings family and friends together from all over the country for a couple of days of fun and camaraderie. #2, the fire department is able to use the money raised to buy needed equipment for the department without the use of taxpayer dollars. That means that the more they make the more A.V. taxpayers save. But PLEASE don’t think this is just a Arbor Vitae thing, it is for everyone.
 
You know, all the events that go on around the beautiful Northwood’s take hard work and dedication. Next time you are at one of these events be sure to thanks the sponsors and organizers.
 
But the year is not over we have a ton left to do. Vilas County Fair, Beef-A-Rama, Pines Football. Things are just getting’ goin’.
 
Don’t forget to always keep up by visiting out On Location page, it is very easy to find at http://www.wrjo.com/pages/9121006.php.

Thanks for being part of the WRJO family.

So Friday I could not be here because of remotes and other station craziness, but I did get a very nice fish fry recipe from Scott Fleishman (9) of Mercer / Wauwatosa, that listens to WRJO on vacation. I promised Scott I would post his recipe today, and get that free fish fry to him.

He is up north with his grandparents till the end of this week, staying at the family cabin on Spider Lake.
 
Scott said that this recipe is used by his grandma to cook what grandpa and him catch.

 
The Parts: 
2 pounds fish fillets, cut in half lengthwise
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups crushed saltines (about 45 crackers)

 
Makin' It: 
Place eggs and cracker crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Dip fillets into eggs, then coat with crumbs. Let stand for 5 minutes.
 
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry fillets, a few at a time, for 2 minutes on each side or until fish is golden brown and flakes easily with a fork.
 
Drain on paper towels.
 
Very nice Scott and grandma. Your fish fries are on the way!
 
Now don't forget, if you have a recipe that everyone should try get it to me. All recipes can be sent by e-mails, letter, or dropped off her at the studios in Eagle River. If I use you recipe on this blog you will receive a FREE fish fry to a local restaurant.

 IT'S SO HOT in Wisconsin

.....the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground.

.....the trees are whistling for the dogs.

.....the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance

.....hot water comes from both taps.

.....you can make sun tea instantly.

.....you learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

.....the temperature drops below 90 F and you feel a little chilly.

.....you discover that it only takes two fingers to steer your car (one on each hand).

.....you discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

.....you actually burn your hand opening the car door.

.....you break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 5:30 A.M.

.....your biggest motorcycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"?

.....you realize that asphalt has a liquid stage.

.....the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter.

.....the cows are giving evaporated milk.

.....farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

And

IT'S SO DRY in Wisconsin that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving rain checks, and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water!

Yesterday we discussed on the air, why was the moon was up at 10am when I came into work? It is a bit confusing to see that, but remember our days are based on the sun not the moon. 
 
Our favorite weather geek, Laura Lockwood has stepped up again with the info we need. Click on this link to see that the moon actually is supposed to be there at 10am.


http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?obj=moon&obj=moon&n=142

A reason to wake up early on July 15th 2012
 
Not only can you see Jupiter and Venus in the eastern Sky before sunrise but there will also be a 12% crescent moon to finish off the celestial triangle.  The arms of the crescent moon will cradle a ghostly image of the full moon, that is caused by Earthshine.  Earthshine is the sunlight reflected from our own plant, in this case, it is cast onto the surface of the otherwise dark lunar landscape.  The average albedo of Earth is 0.306 (earthshine) – the average albedo of the moon is 0.11 (moonshine).

 
Earthshine

So now that you feel more Sciency (yes, that is a word...now), go out and find the moon and enjoy it not only at night but during the day.

 A Lesson In Irony

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S.  Department 
of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of  free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."

Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

This ends today's lesson.

Well this was a crazy week. A holiday in the middle of the week, then back at it to wrap it up!

But, we can say that we finally made it. It's FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY!

Today we have a nice recipe from Karl Kuepper of Hartland Wisconsin. Karl spends his vacation time with us in the Northwoods and says that this is just one of his favorite fish recipes.

So today we dine on Karl Kuepper Pan Fried Bluegill.

 
The Parts:
2 lbs. fillet bluegill fish
1 1/2 tsp. salt
Dash pepper
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. cornmeal
Vegetable oil for frying

 
Makin’ It:
Fillet and clean your bluegill. Rinse and dry fish.
 
Add salt and pepper to milk.
 
Mix flour and cornmeal. Dip fish fillets into milk mix and roll in flour mixture.
 
Fry in hot oil at moderate heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until golden brown on one side.
 
Turn carefully and fry 4 to 5 minutes longer - or until other side is golden brown and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
 
Drain on paper.
 
Thanks Karl. This is quick and simple and sounds Great!

Hope you had a nice 4th.

Well she finally did. Laura Lockwood, our favorite Weather Geek cooked cookies in her car proving that you can cook cookies in the heat in your car, and Weather Geeks have no life.

Take a look...


 COOKING.





















 ALL DONE


































 COOKED THROUGH.



















Good job Laura. Hope there are some in the mail!!

Oh, by the way; if the heat can cook food, it might be good advice to leave your dog at home and save that ride for a cooler day.

Happy 4th of July early. I figured I would wish it now, because tomorrow will be filled with parades and craziness.

Please don't forget the reason we celebrate the day. It's not because Miller came out with a new beer, Johnsonville has a new brat, or Bull Frog has new sun screen.

In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson.


WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

July 2nd? All these years we've been off two day's?

No, as in any business, they could not agree on some wording. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4.

AHHHHH.

Well there is a guy named Marvin that has our country and our hero's memorialized daily. Click the link and take a look at the Sunset Beach evening ceremony.

Happy 4th of July, and God Bless America.
