A few Hollywood super-stars cringe every holiday season, one being George Lucas who allowed his characters from Star Wars be filmed in a poorly scripted holiday special back in 1978.

Tattoos are part of nautical history ranging from memorials of loved ones to markings inked from sheer superstition.
I spent the day in a very old cemetery today. The tombstones were worn, leaning and chipped. Time had made its imprint on most markers placed as a respectful reminder of loved ones dead for many centuries.
The place thrummed with paranormal essence – the energy found in ancient chronicles.

Summer is here and the Tall Ships are coming to port. As I sit on the sand and watch the ocean currents, my mind drifts to times long gone and the mysteries that are encased within history. Deep within the darkest recesses of the ocean’s currents lie the skeletal remains of our past, undiscovered. Truly, a treasure waiting to be “dug up”.
The discovery of one more final frontier – that’s what they want. At least that was my impression as I remained in in my seat tonight watching the credits climb the screen, amazed at the applause filling the theater around me. What were they clapping about?
