Reminiscing: Spiders in the Pantry

I must have been ten or eleven years old when my grandmother, who was going to cook some kielbasa for me, asked me to grab a spider from the cellar stairwell. I had no idea what she meant, but I obediently went to the basement door, opened it, and began walking carefully down the stairs. I was afraid of those stairs since the bottom half were old, cracked wood, with no riser behind them. A young kid could fall right through them into the black hole under the stairs. Plus there were so many spider webs in the basement. Not knowing what grandma was asking for, I went straight for the webs.

Book Reviews Reloaded: Venus - Don't Go There

This article first appeared on East Niagara Post on April 21, 2015. It is repeated here as I work to put all my book reviews in one place. They will be posted on Thursdays or Fridays and only be altered from the original in that I will add publisher information and pages. Hopefully, by revisiting these reviews, other people might find a book they'd like to pick up for their own enjoyment.

Shenanigans Episode 67: The Goop That Laid the Jaded Egg

This week we start off with a little local baseball history that Craig thought George would find interesting. He didn't until after the show. Instead we end up on a long talk about sports, much to Rich's chagrin. So, we talk about movies, where Howie is the king. Coming soon to Netflix: Goop. We can't believe it either. And since it was just Valentine's Day, we discuss some special gifts you could get for your loved ones.
