landscaping is coming along at the new work digs! i spend some time every day in the fitness center with windows that face out on work being done on landscaping. there’s a nice, big patio and the rocks are framing what i believe will be a walking path around the campus. not sure where the employee gardens are going.

oh nothing, just painting a giant wall sized cow mural at our new work digs, as one does. and nooooo, i’m not painting the whole thing. all the employees have an opportunity to come paint as much or as little as they want. then artist valerie miller from steel cow goes over it and makes it look amazing.
you can follow along with the ov employees painting barbara on steel cow’s facebook page.
after 4 months of sitting in hockey arenas on weekends, i almost can’t believe the season is just about over. two games against onalaska today, the kids lost the first game 3-4 but won the second and last game of the regular season 4-3!
it’s always good to end the season with a win!
the next time they play a game it will be against dodgeville in the state championships on march 12th. they lost to dodgeville by one point in a game earlier in the season and i think they really want to avenge that loss. should be a good game.
after almost 3 years in the old bank without many amenities i can’t begin to convey how excited i am to be in the new, finished building with an all organic cafe AND A FITNESS ROOM!
food and fitness makes me a very happy man.
almost three years ago we had a fire at organic valley headquarters and almost two and a half years ago to help make space while they rebuilt the burned portion of the building, the marketing department ( including me ) moved to a an old bank building in a town where if you look closely you might detect a hint of the local scandinavian heritage.
after work was done at hq there was still no room ( we’re always GROOOOOOWING! ) so we stayed in the old bank while work was being done on new work digs WHICH ARE NOW DOOOOOOONE!
which means after 3 years of all of us feeling like we’re in a temporary situation that’s not so temporary, we’re all finally moving into a nice, new building with all kinds of nice, new amenities and i really couldn’t be happier.
i had to stand in the middle of the street to get this shot and while trying to not get hit by traffic, i noticed someone waving wildly as they drove by – a local organic valley farmer looking amused to catch me taking a picture knowing i was capturing our last day in the building 🙂
->this guy<- ( they’re playing first team they'll play at state so i guess it's gonna be 45 minutes of shaky cam teaching video )
if you’re on a coach bus for an out of town hockey game and the parents convince driver to make a beer run after dropping off the kids at the arena ( an hour before the game starts ).
