Wisconsin is known for advancing the lot of mankind through such inventions as cheese, beer, cream puffs, cheese curds, butter burgers, deer hunting, brats, calling water fountains "bubblers," hummels, 'Bless This House' needlepoint wall-hangings, hotdishes, casseroles, and wearing sweatshirts with teddy bears or sports insignia on them.
The funny thing is that I grew up away from all those great technologies and the hustle n' bustle of Wisconsin life. My parents have a small farm, and I grew up around horses and tractors.
