The Creepy Gravestones of Boston

Granary Burying Ground

If you’re searching for inspiration for your Halloween graveyard scene look no further than the gravestones of Boston. I mean really, this is as creepy as it gets! Time has a way of changing what was once beautiful and orderly into something slightly odd and crooked. Stone slabs with cracks and chips and missing sections are scattered amongst each other.

Walking through an old graveyard like this might give you the willy’s or it might just inspire your Halloween creativity like it did for me! Continue reading

I found witches there alright, both real and fictional. Continue reading

Celebrate the Season With Pumpkin Ale

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale

It’s starting to become a tradition for me. As the fall months approach I reach for at least one new fall flavored beer to try out. This year I’ll be drinking two! The first is Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (and yes, that’s how they are spelling pumpkin). The second is Hazelnut Brown Nectar from Rogue Brewing Company. I’m no beer snob and I don’t claim to be a beer expert by any means but I’ll give you my honest impressions of each! I’ll even list a few non-alcoholic beverages you might want to try out to wet your whistle this autumn. Continue reading
