The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

High Energy Physics

Really, this has nothing to do with the Devil Queen except that like all things in the physical world it has mass. My uncle, Steve Ahlen - the guy with the glasses and the goatee - at Boston University, is one of the physicists featured in this week's episode of NOVA. Follow the link here and click "watch the segment" if you have any interest in the world's largest particle accelerator, CERN. Apparently, I'm not the only member of my family with predilection for large projects.

Hey, my physics teacher back in high school used to work at the CERN before he became a teacher. He always told us fascinating (and sometimes scary ;) stories on his work there.

But I really love their humour - on CERN's homepage they write "CERN, the coolest place in the Universe". Good joke...
