Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.

–Marsha Sinetar

 

The things you go through in life, they make you.  They shape every fiber of your being.   Today, things have settled down. When I look back, I see why I have a greater appreciation for wildlife and nature. Neither ask anything of me, or judge. Peace and quiet.  Centered by nature.  A place I can breathe.

White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin

White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin

Today’s topic is going to be a little different.  Something I normally wouldn’t write about, nor would I endorse.  And, SOME may even call me a little crazy for exploring; The White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin. But life is about experiences. Sometimes, walking in someone else’s shoes helps to understand and relate to someone else. We need this in life.  Who knows, you may even gain knowledge, understanding, peace and even comfort in an unlikely place.  Like this church has done for me.

St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin

One thing I absolutely love about traveling is that it provides me with a constant source of education.  Over the weekend, I attended The 4th Annual Spyder Rendezvous in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin with my husband.  Heavy rain prevented me from riding with the group on Friday.  I admit it, I’m a wimp and my dry car provided a comfortable alternative for the day’s travels. I spent some time exploring St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin.

Last year, my daughter and I made a trip up to the hunting grounds in Southern Door County, Wisconsin to meet up with my husband and some friends of ours. The guys had obtained permission to hunt a deer herd that had become an issue on piece of property with an old farmhouse in Door County.  The herd was liquidating the farmers crop fields and corn storage cribs.

The Red Barn Made Me Do It

The Red Barn Made Me Do It - I pulled off on the side of a county road to take a picture of this barn in Brown County, WI. As I was grabbing my camera out of the back of my car an officer stopped and asked if I needed help. It was a nice gesture.

No Officer – The Barn Made Me

I pulled off on the side of a county road to take a picture of this barn in Brown County, WI. The red barn stuck out beautiful against the snow.

As I was grabbing my camera out of the back of my car an officer stopped and asked if I needed help. It was a nice gesture.

Why Were Barns Painted Red?

He asked me if I knew why most barns were painted red. I did, but really wanted to hear his version. Pretty much the same as I had heard.

 

Barns were painted by using linseed oil long ago. That gave them a reddish orange look. Some farmers added rust to the linseed oil because it helped to kill algae and prevent it from growing on their structures.
