We love the new campaign to educate our community about bullying. My hope is that we teach kids to speak out against bullying, to help parents understand what bullying really looks like, and encourage teachers to make a difference within their schools. If you have any stories, use the hashtag #BeABuddy. We'd love to hear from you!
I love this! Take the Buddy Pledge. Contact Dean Clinic to find out how you can get a wristband and show your support!
I have never seen a city get behind Fish Fry Fridays like Madison. If you're from the area, it's definitely "a thing". My friends Neal and Melissa took me out to Quivey's recently, and it was such a neat experience! I've got a list that I'm working through, but here's my QG experience.
1. First thing's first: The atmosphere is really cool. On FFF, you can either eat under the outdoor tent or you can cop a squat at a table in the stone house. There's also a tunnel that will take you from the bar to the house, which apparently is great in the winter. My friends and I noted that Quivey's has a little bit of a Southern feel.
2. You have the option of getting a little cake of parmesan potatoes. If you like to mix it up every now and then, not a bad idea.
3. And instead of rolls, you get muffins. People go on and on about the muffins. Again, if you like changing things up every now and then, it's kind of a neat treat. You're already going to do a carb overload, so you might as well.
What a great little trip! I really enjoyed getting out there and seeing people. It's so fun to plan out your Friday nights a fish fry. I'd love to hear more suggestions!
Most people are friendly... unless they're writing letters or email. I remember one time I got a handwritten note about the ugliness of my mole.
But, I digress. This recent piece of mail was especially nice. Sharon not only welcomed me to the area, but she also said she liked our whole news team. Thanks, Sharon! Feel free to send more like that ou
