Don Monroe is such a singularly unique researcher that there really are no other contemporaries.

Eat Like a Sasquatch

We utilize farmer's markets to get freshly grown items to enhance our cooking experience, but many chefs find items grown in the wild to be exotic local tastes to add to their dishes. They consider it a natural enhancement, but the woodlands really were the first growing sources for food.

Areas of radio silence are odd and sometimes unexplained. There is an area of the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico referred to as the Zone of Silence. What is going on there?

Cemeteries At Night

Anyone who has sneaked into a cemetery at night knows that is a thing of terror and equally as much a thing of exquisite beauty. Even in daytime, cemeteries are like memorial parks, still and contemplative, well-manicured and unhurried. But, at night, they become a strange black and white world in which the headstones are the only thing visible in the dimmest of moonlight. In fact, cemeteries real character comes out at night.

Some of the most abandoned places in the world are mining towns that tapped out the resources and moved on, towns hit by natural disasters, and ones in the most extreme climates. Here are some examples of what Alaska has left behind, beautiful and sometimes quite mysterious!

Fire Lookout Towers

Fire tower lookouts were built in the early 1900s and workers or volunteers manned them to keep an eye on any potential fire outbreaks following camping season and electrical storms.  They are lovely solitary buildings that create a romantic notion of being in a bird's nest away from the hustle and bustle, king of the forest.

Halloween Party Themes That Are Super Cheap!

In 2009, I had a post-apocalyptic graveyard theme for a Halloween party. It was very cheap to put together and very effective. You don't have to spend a lot for a Halloween party, as the idea is to make it as dark and rugged as possible which means repurposing junk.

Healing With Colors

One thing I know about new-age healing is that belief has an amazing power. People who believe in prayer, believe in crystals, belief in hands-on healers, release their own chemicals in their bodies to do that which they seek. Some people can use meditation, others aggressive exercise, and for some, sex. However you find your healing, if there is belief-there is response.

Mummies of Guanajuato

During a cholera outbreak in 1833 in Mexico, many bodies were interred underground in an air-tight catacomb. When families couldn't pay taxes, they were disinterred and placed in a building where many of them mummified.  The building was turned into a museum called El Museo De Las Mamios (Mummy Museum).

Where to Shop For Halloween

There are the usual places like Party City and Spirit Halloween to shop for Halloween items, but I like to get things that are unique, individual, and sometimes so damn pretty, you use them year-round if you're a horror/Victorian Era freak like me.  In fact, I suspect that any of these shops you would want to buy from year-round.

America's Zombie Neighborhoods: Abandoned Housing Developments

America was founded in the 1950s as the subdivision maker of the world. Whole neighborhoods with quaint-named streets and tract housing went up all over the country during the boom. Highways were being built at an amazing rate, infrastructure was the boom industry. Then, decades later, as recession hit, shopping malls closed and even whole subdivisions went under before they were event inhabited.
