Monster Cereals In Retro Packaging This Year!

According to the General Mills blog, our favorite Monster Cereals will return to Target Stores in retro packaging this season.  AND they've brought back Yummy Mummy and Fruit Brute (now "Frute" Brute).  If you don't have a Target Store nearby, other stores will carry the cereals in "non-retro" designs.  Check the General Mills blog about this for more info.

RIP Julie Harris

We lost a great actress today.  Julie Harris, star of the incredible Robert Wise film "The Haunting" died at age 87.  To this day, still my favorite horror film, made all the more wonderful to me knowing that Julie and I shared the same hometown of Grosse Pointe, Michigan.  Her family home was only a mile or so from mine.

"Hill House" used in the film is now the Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon.  You can book a visit there and do your own ghost hunting if you wish.  It's considered the most haunted hotel in all of the UK.

"No one lives any nearer than town.
No one will come any nearer than that.
In the night.
In the dark."
- Mrs Dudley, "The Haunting" 

Trivia: Julie Harris' Childhood Home in 
Grosse Pointe looking a bit like Hill House:
9,600 square feet of home on Lake St Clair

Even more trivia: An RAF jet crashed into houses about 2000 feet away from their home in October 1958
