The Devil Queen

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

My Photo
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.

For those of you who haven't been with us since the beginning, I've posted a short synopsis of the Devil Queen's Story at the top of the page. Hope it helps.

Now, if I could only reduce the font a little so it didn't fill the whole bloody screen when the page uploads.

One of the simplest ways you could reduce the font size is to wrap the text with span tags and include the a style attribute:

<span class="font-size:11px">your text</span>

Thanks for the tip. I tried it, but I can't tell that it worked. I even reduced the px size too.

As long as you're still working on that paragraph--here are two spelling errors to fix.
>>essential rebuilt the entire house. They only problem<<


I'm only correcting you because I care!
