As a matter of fact, I just spoke to him on that birthday as he was getting ready to celebrate with his friends and family for dinner. The very last words we spoke to each other were “I love you.” That is probably the string … Continue reading

American Horror Story – Possibly A New Fan Favorite

American-Horror-Story

Sometimes though, an even darker feeling can creep … Continue reading

Delphine LaLaurie

What twisted creatures women can be.
