Milwaukee lies along the shores and bluffs of Lake Michigan at the confluence of three rivers: the Menomonee, the Kinnickinnic, and the Milwaukee. Smaller rivers, such as the Root River and Lincoln Creek, also flow through the city. Early explorers called the Milwaukee River and surrounding lands various names: Melleorki, Milwacky, Mahn-a-waukie, Milwarck, and Milwaucki. For many years, printed records gave the name as "Milwaukie". One story of Milwaukee's name says,
One day during the thirties of the last century [1800s] a newspaper calmly changed the name to Milwaukee, and Milwaukee it has remained until this day.
It is the largest city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It is known as the most romantic city on Earth and is the home of Romanticorp, a company that makes romantic things. It is also the birthplace of beer goggles.
Romanticorp has been run by a married couple, Sheldon and Gwen for over 30 years. Everything is made using un-romantic materials, for example, heart shaped boxes are made from recycled garbage.
