Rhapsody for a Janesville bridge

When I left Wisconsin Consumer Protection 4 years ago at age 70, I made a documentry about the Rock River. As a result, the Janesville Gazette asked me to make videos for its Xtra webpage. Since June 2009, I've made 208 of them for the Gazette ...mostly on the river and its wildlife. These same videos circulating on You Tube have been viewed by people in every state in the Union and many foreign countries. I'm having more fun than I deserve!
