First, I just have to share a picture taken today, proving once again that Virginia is the greatest gal ever. Boston terriers are love.
And now something completely different: for that Halloween atmosphere, here are some links about the eerie and fascinating Paris catacombs, complete with pictures!

For the quote of the day, picking up where we left off yesterday...
...I have plunged like a deer through the arches
Of the hoary primoridal grove,
Where the oaks feel the presence that marches,
And stalks on where no spirit dares rove,
And I flee from a thing that surrounds me, and leers through dead branches above.
I have stumbled by cave-ridden mountains
That rise barren and bleak from the plain,
I have drunk of the fog-foetid fountains
That ooze down to the marsh and the main;
And in hot cursed tarns I have seen things, I care not to gaze on again.
I have scanned the vast ivy-clad palace,
I have trod its untenanted hall,
Where the moon rising up from the valleys
Shows the tapestried things on the wall;
Strange figures discordantly woven, that I cannot endure to recall...
from "Nemesis" by H.P. Lovecraft
