Small Businesses and Side Hustle

If I’ve learned anything during the apocalypse, it’s that it’s a great time to take stock and re-evaluate, you know, everything. For example, I’ve come to realize that supporting local small businesses is really important to me. As friends and family will attest, I get very… passionate when I talk about the plague that isContinue reading “Small Businesses and Side Hustle”

The Straw Stack Murders

On April 16, 1933, Mike Swyck, a farmer in the Whitkow district of Saskatchewan, noticed his dog digging around in the ashes of his straw stack, which he had seen go up in flames from his farmhouse several days previous and decided to investigate.

April Showers Bring May Axe Murders

As my hunt for the haunted skull of the Kerrobert Courthouse continues, there are certain keywords that are certain to grab my attention as I scroll through the piles of 1930s news articles.

They Sure Like Their Strychnine, Don’t They?

A few weeks ago, I told you about my search for the mysterious skull that Kerrobert claims is behind their haunted courthouse. (If you haven’t read it, you can do so here.)

10 Signs My Husband and I Are Childless

1. My husband spent several weeks doing a deep dive into which new TV would best suit his gaming needs. 2. We get 8-10 hours of sleep. Per night. 3.
