Mr. King's


In the top picture I am in front of Stephen King's home in Bangor Maine.  Although it is not his home town it is the inspiration and setting for many of his best books.  Perhaps he likes its eerie name.  Instead he was born in Portland, Maine.  My admiration for his writing stems from how bravely he crafts a character and then turns around and spends that great investment by killing them.  He knows better than anyone that feeling for the loss of a character and feeling that horror can only be accomplished if you allow the necessary time for the character to be truly known by the readers. 

The smaller picture above is an example of some of the macabre ironwork that decorates the  four foot fence that keeps out the visitors.

What is She Thinking?

Avril Lavigne is engaged to Chad Kroeger of Nickelback.  Do you catchy but bad music take this really bad music to be your lawful wedded husband?  Not that this is going to ruin Canada or anything, but really how long do you give it?

These guys are saying that starting Tannehill is a bad idea. I hope they are wrong. Link.
