My daughter went to see PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 last night. She enjoyed it for the goofy horror movie that it was and as I drove her home from the theater she asked me: "What would you do if you had to deal with someone who was possessed by demons?"

I immediately answered "I would contact the Reverend Sean Manchester." 

My daughter nodded sagely at this response because she knows very well that The traditionalist Right Reverend Seán Manchester, the Bishop of Glastonbury (bishop in the Old Catholic Church, not the Roman Catholic or Anglican Church) is an author, exorcist and demonologist. Bishop Manchester gained fame when he headed up the investigation into a string of bizarre happenings which plagued Highgate Cemetery beginning in 1967 and ending in 1982.

My daughter agreed that would be a good idea. When we got home we asked my wife what she would do. My wife rolled her eyes and said "Can we please, for once, talk about something that makes sense?"

We said no more about the subject except to agree that my wife would probably kick the demon's ass.

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

You wife reminds me of my mother. She has no interest in talking about or seeing things that are not rooted in reality. My father was the opposite. He's loved the fantasy and mysteries of this world. I am totally jealous that you have such a cool daughter to share those things with. One woman in your life tells it like it IS and the other tells it like it SHOULD be.

Yeah, but with my wife it's all an act. I'm sure she know more than she lets on. In fact I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find out that ghosts and demons are more afraid of her than she is of them.

Kal - One woman in your life tells it like it IS and the other tells it like it SHOULD be.

Ah.. and which one is which? ;)

M.D. - I think we may be married to sisters separated at birth.
