    I watched my first episode of Grimm last night and really enjoyed it. It was a rerun but this is my first opportunity to see it. I still prefer Once Upon a Time but Grimm would come in second.

    More on vampires

    Have you noticed since the popularity of the "Twilight" series and the movies, there are tons of vampire books out there? Seems like many are trying to ride the coat tails of Stephanie Meyer. I picked up a Nora Roberts the other day and it was about vampires. Enough!!!

    Living among witches.

    There is a professed family of witches in our community. Their kids go to school and they live amongst us. I have never known of anything amiss and do wonder if they say they are witches just to get attention.
