HauntedCon 2010 - Haunted News Conference

News and Events Related to Haunting

This site is dedicated to updating you with the news and events related to Haunted Houses, Haunted Floors, Haunted Churches, and Haunted dwellings in general.  We are in the process of organizing an new conference for the HauntedCon 2010.  As information on the event becomes available we will be sending out emails to our email list with times and dates of the new event.  We are currently thinking of hosting the event in an abondoned church near Atlanta, GA.  At this time the said church appears to be haunted and would make for a great location to host HauntedCon 2010.  If you have any input on to where a good location would be that would be greatly appreciated.  Last years HauntedCon was in Prescott, AZ and we had a pretty good turnout.  Please check back soon for new information on the event. 

Virginia Vintage Flooring – Stylish and Captivating


A shared dream among the working population is to one day own a home of their very own.  Whether big or small, uptown or down, the location is only half the battle.  The other half, perhaps even the more important one, is the interior living conditions of the home.  You don’t live on the outside, you live on the inside and you want that space to truly reflect your personality and lifestyle.  Unfortunately, finding a home that combines the best of both worlds is harder than it seems and leaves many home owners seeking renovations.

Cork, yes cork can be used for flooring.  You’re probably thinking wine stopper and what you pull out of that delicious bottle of wine so that you can enjoy it.  You’re right; Wicanders cork flooring is exactly that.  Cork is actually comes from the outer bark of a cork oak tree.  These trees are found mainly in the Mediterranean region.  Because cork has elements like cellulose and suberin in it, it has increased elasticity which makes it ideal for things like wine stoppers and various high-tech items.  The great thing about cork is that the bark can be stripped off of the cork oak tree, and it doesn’t hurt the tree.  So, the bark will grow back and can be harvested numerous times in its life cycle.  This makes it a sustainable and renewable resource that cannot be exhausted.

Deer Hunting is Costly

The last couple of years I have witnessed my stepdad and my husband’s boss make 2 trips a year to Kansas, and several other states, to bring home a huge elk or deer.  I mean they spend thousands of dollars on each of these trips.  I haven’t, until yet, been able to see what the big deal is about hunting, but obviously I’m missing the big picture.

I guess depending upon how important you find the sport, thousands of dollars isn’t much to spend to make a big kill.  My stepdad eats, sleeps, and breathes hunting, any kind of hunting.  He makes sacrifices every year on different vacations, even the beach, and several other needed items to be able to make his big trip to Kansas.  I’ve never seen a grown man’s eyes light up the way his do on the day he leaves to make the trip.

From what I’ve heard about the trips the men have guides.  Not only do they have guides, but they are actually guided on which deer’s to kill, and which to save.  Personally, I wouldn’t find it much of a fair sport if certain animals are “caged” in on several thousand acres of land, and you are actually guided on what to do when you find them.  Then, once you find “your” deer, personally guided to, it’s definitely going to cost you.  Not just the average hundred dollars you would think, but thousands of dollars.  I wouldn’t want to even begin to think what an Elk might cost you.  Not including boarding, gas, or the taxidermy service you’re going to need once you get home.

The stories don’t stop at the Kansas border.  They just begin once this gigantic animal is mounted on the wall.  Just imagine a story you could get from an obsessed hunter once someone spots it on his wall, and begins a conversation on the kill.  One conversation could go on hours with pictures to follow.  I mean what would a good deer hunter be without several thousand pictures to prove each and every kill he’s ever made in his life. 

Although I haven’t caught onto the big picture with hunting, what I can say is that it is a passion; you can see it in every hunter’s eyes, especially right after the big kill.  So, what I can do is appreciate the passion, and hope my husband never wants to kill a thousand dollar deer!
