Comments on this week's show 1844 OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS!

Yup....Can you believe it?

We are heading into another holiday season!

First Halloween, then Thanksgiving....then...yes then....CHRISTMAS, followed closely by a brand new year!


Take a deep breath and ENJOY this time of the year!

We hope we can help you do that on this week's show with a fine leisurely sleigh ride in the N. Michigan Wilderness at Thunder Bay Resort!

The first segment is a ride we took back in February of this year when it was rather chilly.....alright down right, bone chilling COLD!..Even though we said on the show it was a TWO BLANKET trip to the lodge and the delicious gourmet meal.....I WOULD HAVE GIVEN MY EYE TEETH for a third...fourth and 5th blanket that day!...BUT IT CERTAINLY WAS WORTH IT! Watch the show and you'll see what we mean!

Also on the show we feature a small segment on "Pumpkin Chunkin" shared with us by Journalist and friend Jerry Nunn. Jerry and his crew filmed this event at Wellington Farm near Grayling. What we "northerners" will do for fun can stretch the imagination! Lots of fun here! Thanks Jerry!

You know it's the season of Good will and sharing as we present to you the Bikers 4 Kids get together at the Sportsman Bar and Grill on M30 North of Gladwin...The meal and auction proceeds go to needy kids and families during the Christmas season!

DON'T FORGET TO ATTEND THE EVENT THIS SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2ND 2013...The Door prizes, raffles, and auction items will astound you! IE: a four wheeler....guns and more! Check out the show and YOU'LL SEE EXACTLY WHAT WE MEAN!


Enjoy the show :-)

Let The American Traditions Begin! Enjoy!

I can not believe ourTraditional American Holiday season celebrations are about to begin!

NEXT WEEK Halloween...then a few weeks later..Thanksgiving.....Then Christmas....Then a new year! WOW!

I can feel the excitement in the air...hear chatter among kids checking school schedules for "days off".....and senior citizens looking wistfully into the chilled autumn sky remembering traditions and family celebrations of their past....(sigh) I must admit...I've become one of the latter!

Pumpkin Pie, Turkey, Mom's famous stuffing and hot homemade biscuits...the aroma takes me back and warms my soul...

Enjoy the traditions!

Comments on this week's show 1843

This week's show is another example of the perseverance of the Michigan spirit!

Our Journey to Uncle Don's Apple Pie small distillery in Cadillac was a big surprise for the Michigan Magazine TV Crew...We simply didn't expect what we witnessed and learned of this fairly new industry growing in Michigan.

Upon entering Uncle Don's on Mitchell street we were welcomed with the sweet aroma of Apple Pies cooking....This is the secret recipe infused into Uncle Don's cocktail blends of Vodka.

As you watch this week's show you'll see the operation up close and personal as Uncle Don and his assistant QC person, Amanda, operate the stills and bottle the product in this ultra sanitary facility! Quite a difference from what many imagine a "craft" still would look like! (ie: backwoods old copper tubing camouflaged with leaves to fool the "revenuers")

This new distillery business is strictly regulated by the state and Uncle Don has all the licensing paperwork posted

They have found their niche'

Then on we head to Bellaire High School to witness an artist in action.

Former Art Instructor Ray Villafane demonstrates his love of sculpture while teaching the art of creating the most unusual JACK O LANTERNS!

Since our visit with Ray back in the 1990s he left the school system to pursue his first love....Sculpture IN ALL SORTS OF MEDIUM.

You'll find Ray's work all over the internet and coveted by a loyal clientele....Bellaire High School is where it all started.

Traveling the Michigan backroads is OUR favorite past time and bringing our adventures to our viewers is our "joy"....You know how it feels when you see something that makes you burst with pride and excitment?...That's how we feel each week!

WAIT A MINUTE! DON'T STOP READING...At the end of this show you'll be given a chance to WIN A WONDERFUL TEDDY BEAR MADE OF GENUINE MICHIGAN ALPACA WOOL valued at $50.00...You have to watch to find out how...HURRY WE'LL BE GIVING IT AWAY SOON!
