I love that stuff too. Going on "haunted" tours and stuff like that is a great way to learn history and see some great old sites. My wife and I love going through old cemeteries (I know, it sounds morbid). But, there's so much history in them. We've walked around them for hours before just seeing what the oldest headstone we could find was.

I love old buildings and that sort of thing, too. Salem would be awesome!

Good afternoon, friends!

Stopping in for a quick "hello" a I ride the train back to Ottawa. I know, I returned from vacation on Monday, but I had to take a quick train ride to Brockville this morning. The reason? I had an interview for a supply teacher with the Upper Canada District School Board. It seemed to go OK. Hopefully I get a position. I really need this to (finally) work out! At least Brockville is only about an hour train ride/drive from Ottawa...It's an easy travel.

No plans for tonight. I will probably go to the gym at my normal time and then see what is happening afterward. Kim is in Toronto for a bachelorette party, so I'm free to roam if I want to. We'll see what happens.

I hope everyone is having a great Friday... and ready for a monumentous milestone celebration on Sunday. 3/4 to the Christmas Season! It's a good thing that my two new blu rays (Elf - I wanted to upgrade from DVD) and Polar Express arrived in the mail yesterday. Perfect timing!

Have a great day, everyone!

I don't think we've heard from Trackrebel recently on the Countdown. Hope she's alright!

Hi Brent. I'm praying for you about the job situation. I hope you hear good news soon!

Many thanks! I'm hopeful, too. It's not steady employment, but at least I would be able to finally put my degree to use.
