Check out the duck. Teeth on the ice shelf. The thin ice on the water was piling up due to the gentle, but freezing breeze. I wish I had recorded the glass tinkle of it. Photos by Mike Fisk

Daffodils in Wisconsin photos First Sign of Spring... a beautful new Soul Amp tune to Amplify your Soul in all it's Yellow Daffodil Gloriousness

Daffodils are sign here in Wisconsin that Spring is finally on it's way. Of course this morning it was snowing when I took pics of these daffodils and it's April 21. Imagine that all you warm state/country people. I pity those to the North of us (as they have to wait even long for Spring to arrive).

BTW, Happy Earth Day everybody! (it's actually tomorrow)

I posted some other daffodils here:

Golden Sunrise on Lake Michigan Ice Formations in February 2009.... Natural Ice Sculptures... New Soul Amp Music

Well, here is another new tune to go with all these great pictures of a golden sunrise on Lake Michigan in the winter of 2009.

Hey, remember Earth Day is tomorrow. The 39th anniversary of that event. Think about how far we have to go to sustainability and avoidance of our collective short sighted suicide. Gosh I'm negative sometimes.

Anyhow, here's the song:

Cow Statues in Wisconsin - Concrete Cows in Milwaukee at Parkplace - An Odd Song to go with the Odd Statues - Another new Soul Amp release!

So, imagine that...we can't get enough cows up here in Wisconsin, land of the Cheeseheads. No we have to make concrete statues of them. Kind like all the deer lawn ornaments in my neighborhood. It's like we don't already have enough cows and deer, we have to remind ourselves that we have them.

Not complaining really...just making light of the craziness of it all. I think the long winters makes us crazy. Makes us make cow statues and buy deer lawn oraments. (btw, I do like cow statues as much as the next person, so don't write me and say I don't like cows or odd art, because I do... very obviously so on the second part)

These concrete cow statues are at Parkplace in Milwaukee, WI. I took the pics in April 2009 (yep, if you're just reading this and it's April 2009, then you are a very cool follower of this blog and thank you for your punctual reading.)

I hope you all have a wonderful and fabulous Monday and a groovy week...well ok, just hoping it doesn't s*ck. (And for you Obama haters out there...O has done more for this country in his first three 3 months than B did to this country in 8 years... ok, well that didn't come out quite right, but you get my drift...)

OK, I'll shut up.

Here's the song (an odd song for odd pictures):

First Flowers of Spring in Wisconsin - April in Milwauke - Daffodils on a Pond - Strangest Oddest Spring Song from Soul Amp - It will Melt Your Mind

At last, the first flowers of Spring. Winter lets loose its grip at last (well almost, it snowed a few days back, but only a dusting). Yep it's APRIL. Spring comes late to the glorious state of Wisconsin and when it does it's often a beauty. (Sometimes it's crappy and rainy and snowy, but we won't talk about that and focus on the new thing for us...sunshine.)

So here's the first flowers I found and I have posted them here for you enjoyment.

I have also created a crazy tune (slapped together in about 40 minutes). It'll melt your mind... so sorry in advance if that's not what you wanted.

Please and enjoy and have a lovely Friday.

Here's the song, tune, whatever:
