A Spell

Pour in blood, and blood-like wine,
To Mother Earth and Proserpine:
Mingle milk into the stream:
Feast the ghosts that love the stream;
Snatch a brand from funeral pile:
Toss it in, to make them boil:
And turn your faces from the sun;
Answer me, if this be done?

                                      'Tis done.

- John Dryden


Some wonderful prop work here.

Mercer Museum

Saw some neat stuff yesterday...

The Mercer Museum is a six-story reinforced concrete castle designed by Henry Mercer (1856-1930) and completed in 1916.  Today, it is one of Bucks County’s premier cultural attractions and a Smithsonian affiliate.

The museum complex features local and national traveling exhibits, as well as a core museum collection of over 50,000 pre-Industrial tools. This permanent collection offers visitors a unique window into pre-Industrial America through sixty different crafts and trades, and is one of the world’s most comprehensive portraits of pre-Industrial American material culture. The museum also features a research library that is a center for local history related to Bucks County and the surrounding region, with its roots dating back to the founding of the Bucks County Historical Society in 1880.

As For The Bus... Some Say It Sank So Deep That It Couldn't Be Found

It happened thirty years ago, on a late Halloween afternoon.  A school bus was on its usual route, but this wasn’t your typical school bus… and they weren’t your typical kids. There were eight of them, and they were… different… troubled… disturbed.

Santa Watching

Currently waiting for the big guy...

Had a great Christmas Eve and if he doesn't show, or if I sleep through it, I'll be juuuuuust fine.

Now Playing: The Steam Whistle Of York, Pennsylvania


Every Christmas morning at 12:15 AM since December 25, 1955, the Ryan family has presented a unique heralding of the holiday season. Announcing the arrival of Christmas day, whistle master Donald E. Ryan starts to play carols on a factory whistle. Thousands of people each year make listening to the carols part of their holiday tradition. This tradition has, perhaps, no other counterpart in the world!

Click below for a great little news segment...

And here to see some video of it happening early Christmas morning (from the outside)...

When you watch stuff like this, you realize Tradition is one of the most wonderful and uniquely human things on the face of this earth, and in the Universe most likely (assumption).

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve!
