On Halloween, Let's Consider Important Questions. Like, Do Vampires Poop?

It’s Halloween weekend, and along with the tricks and treats, and little goblins and ghouls, there are other things that haunt me. Questions. Queries. Imaginings. About These keep me awake at night.

With Halloween Approaching, I Think It's Time We Asked, Do Ghosts Fart?

Do ghosts fart? Ever walk into your house after you’ve been away, or walk into a room and notice a strange smell?

The Answer To One Of Life's Incredibly Deep And Important Questions Is Under Your Nose

Ever walk into your house after you’ve been away, or walk into a room and notice a strange smell? That happened this week, after the Midwest hurricane knocked three trees and multiple branches onto my house and around my yard. The power was out, my phone was out, and internet was (and still is) out, and my son and I walked around outside later that evening, after the storm had cleared, to check out the damage in our own yard and around the neighborhood. When we arrived back in the house, before dark, there was a strange smell. “Was that you?” “No, was it you?” Nope on... Read More
