Happy Holidays! This can be a difficult time of year for a lot of people. Please remember those less fortunate than us and do something special for them. Most of the time it just takes something simple that makes a huge difference in someone's life. The gift of kindness to a stranger, time volunteered or money generously given goes a long way to make difference. Thank you for remembering that this is the season of giving. Happy Holidays to each and every one of you!

Supermoon! The biggest full moon of 2012 happens tonight at 11:35PM EDT. It's perigee, that time when the moon is at its shortest distance from earth. Supermoons only occur about every 412 days. Head out and do a litle howling!

The wonderful thing about art is that everyone has their own interpretation of what it means. "The Scream" by Edvard Munch was sold at auction today. I think JK Rowling saw this painting and said to herself "Now that's a dementor!"

10 April 1912 the RMS Titanic leaves on her maiden voyage from Southampton. The "unsinkable" ship strikes an iceberg at 11:40PM on 14 April 1912 and slips below the surface of the North Atlantic with 1,514 souls on board at 2:20AM 15 April 1912.
100 years later, almost to the day, the great ship lies two and a half miles below the waves of the North Atlantic and still piques our interest today. May those who went down with Her rest in peace.

I am systamatically going through all of my recommended stories and archiving them. Too many times in the past, stories have just gone away and I want to make sure that I have them saved. Having recommended stories for over 9 years, I have learned that some authors just fade into the sunset and some stories get pulled. Regardless, every story I recommend, I truly enjoyed and would like to read again. In the process, I'm finding some new stories (sequels) that I am adding to the Suggested Reading List. This is a painstakenly slow process, but the site will be much better in the long run. Do be sure to check the Rec'd List from time to time as I have been updating it almost daily.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It has been some months since I've been very active with the site. I am now the General Manager of a 111 room hotel and it has been taking 110% of my time to get it up and running. Now that things have "settled in" I will have more time to spend on the site. Thanks to you all for your many emails expressing concerning over my health. Rest assured, I am just fine and updates will now be coming on a more regular basis.
