A night view of the City Park fountain in Appleton with the Dallas Anderson sculpture, Ring Dance. 2009.
A view along west College Avenue in downtown Appleton were some popular and terrific restaurants are. Tapas Restaurant is a relatively new offering in Appleton, riding the growing wave of interest in Mediterranean tapas-style cuisine. Yes, of course we're trendy! Why do you ask?
Two women dancers from the Oneida Tribe of Indians, performing at Bay Beach Park in Green Bay, Sept. 7, 2009, for a local labor union. The Oneida Indian Tribe of Wisconsin is an important part of the cultural landscape in this part of Wisconsin.

A stained glass window in Lawrene Chapel celebrating the founding of the city of Appleton.
Appleton East High School at night, Jan. 2008. One of the best high schools in Wisconsin, if you were wondering. I'm a little biased, but my kids had great experiences there in academics, sports, and music. Great teachers, leaders, and students.
I've been inside this building several times, but never enjoyed it. It looks majestic and beautiful from some views (from the top of a downtown parking ramp here), but the inside is rather grim. Notice the narrow windows? This is the Appleton Slammer - better known as the Outagamie County Correctional Facility, adjacent to the lovely Outagamie County Courthouse. Oh, about the time I've spent inside: it was always visiting other people, so far. At least that's the story I'm sticking with. Photographed October 2008.
The Performing Arts Center or PAC on College Avenue in downtown Appleton. This street was temporarily renamed Google Avenue in March 2010 to show Google that Appleton was serious about vying for enhanced broadband services.
This is an area with a lot of deer. This one was spotted at Outagamie County Park.
Lake Winnebago: Good for boats in the summer, trucks in the winter. Feb. 7, 2008, viewed from the end of Wisconsin Avenue in Neenah.
Looking down Morrison Avenue from College Avenue, with City Center East on the left. Dec. 24, 2008.

A quiet and relatively unknown Jewish cemetary in Appleton on Wisconsin Avenue, reninding us of the notworthy historical contributions of Appleton's Jewish population.
