Good places to stay in or near Bayfield, WI

Starting to think about actually getting outside and enjoying the world now that the polar vortices have left the upper Midwest for a while. Thinking of heading to Bayfield, WI in August; I'd love to get recommendations from people who know of good places to stay in or near Bayfield. Hotels, cabins, resorts, whatever, as long as it's rad.

Help me adjust to (or tolerate) the Midwest...

I grew up and attended university on the East Coast. I don't know what I was thinking when I matriculated at a graduate program in the Midwest-- perhaps I thought that having lived in diverse settings would be a good life experience or something (?) ... Well, what's done is done, and I'm here for the next three years. Please help me better deal with this culture shock! [more inside]

Is this a good time to see migrating birds in Milwaukee? If so, where?

I’m heading to the Milwaukee airport tomorrow, but my flight isn’t till the evening. Somewhere I read about a spot by Lake Michigan that was a good place to see migrating birds. Now I can’t find that article. Is this even the right time of year? If so, where should I go?

How do state income taxes work when you work in a different state?

My husband and I just switched our legal residency to a state with no income tax (South Dakota). This is very common amongst full-time RVers because SD recognizes a full time travel status. However, we're neither working nor living in South Dakota, so how do state taxes work? [more inside]

We're a straight couple who has always said we wouldn't marry while our queer friends couldn't.

Wisconsin DNR wildlife technician exam- can I study for it?

I am hoping there are some metafites out there that have taken this exam and can tell me what to expect. Unlike other wildlife wildlife position exams, there is no option to "preview exam." Roughly how many questions is it? What type of questions and how should I study? I really want to get this job! Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Unemployment in WI: nonprofit edition

I work for a small non-profit in WI and the organization is about to close its doors. Because we are so small, the non-profit has not had to pay into the state UI fund. I don't know what that means for my ability to collect unemployment. I am going to see an unemployment office as soon as possible, but I would appreciate any info from MeFi about whether there are ways I am eligible to receive benefits, if there are specific questions I should ask the UI office, and whether there are other state or federal benefits available to me as I look for a new job.

Friend in Madison, WI needs a great proactive therapist. Know any?

Pretty straightforward. Friend in Madison, WI needs a great proactive therapist. Know any? She's in her thirties, depressed and stuck back with her parents. She's feels like she can't get her act together to escape the negative self talk of her family. CBT? Fine. Talk therapy? fine. Don't need a google based directory - Need someone you know/worked with/helped you/great friend from school etc. Preferably someone who could see her next week.

Flower House

Last spring or summer I heard a spot on NPR about a couple in Madison, WI who plant thousands of flower bulbs in their backyard every year. It became a bit of an attraction in the neighborhood as they allowed people to wander around the yard to see the flowers. Does anyone know where this house is or can someone point me to the radio spot?
