There is something about a late evening ghost story around the campfire that is both scary and fascinating. Maine has some legendary ghost stories and maybe one of the most famous ghost stories from Maine is Catherine's Ghost.

While shopping in Walmart, and not having very much money to spend, the kids wanted to walk down the toy aisle. They wanted to get an idea of what Santa could bring them for Christmas.

‘Once upon a midnight dreary, while I ponder, weak and weary’, the first line to ‘The Raven,' by Edgar Allen Poe. It was, and I think still is, a must read for school children of all grades. 'The Raven' was first published January 29, 1845. It is a story of a man trying to forget his lost love when a raven flies through his window and the man speaks to it.
