We have a stuffed reindeer that has been in our family for about 20 years. He is a cute little dude however, he cannot really be used as a decoration anywhere because he has a problem. He always falls over to the left side so he always gets stashed in storage. Hence, he has earned the name Ralph the Reject Reindeer. Read the whole story>>

The world famous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado is well known for hosting many of the rich and famous who want to get away into the mountains for a while. The hotel is also the inspiration for Stephen King’s The Shining. However, it is not the actual hotel in the movie which was filmed at Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood, Oregon. Even though the inspiration was fictional, the Stanley hotel is very haunted!

Off the coast of Connecticut, there lies Charles Island which is the stuff that fairytales are made of. Native American curses, haunted by spirits, pirates, buried treasure, a pathway that only appears by day so you can walk to the island, but disappears at night, and not to leave out… ghosts! Except it is not a fairytale, it is all very real.

Around the end of the 19th century, one of the first hotels known in the Alaskan wilderness was built in Skagway, Alaska. A young gold prospector and his fiancé Mary came to the area looking for fortune. He got Mary a room at the Golden North Hotel until he could find enough gold to establish a homestead of their very own. That unfortunately, would never happen.
