High John the Conqueror Root

High John the Conqueror Root While visiting New Orleans a few weeks ago, I finally stopped into the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. I’ll be writing more blogs about the museum in general and the special collections specifically in the coming weeks. However, one of the collections includes voodoo medicine. One display included High John the Conqueror Root, and I wanted to know more!...

Georgia Vehicular Homicide Penalties Less Than the Cost of a New iPhone

A friend of mine lost her brother, Andy, when a motorist attempted to turn left in front of him. Andy was a motorcyclist. He died on impact. The driver failed to yield and was eventually cited. Unbelievably, the woman who killed him may serve one year (the max) and pay a $1,000 fine. That's it in Georgia. Andy's family has started a Change.Org petition for the laws to change in Georgia, and you can help!...

Roberson and Co. of London's tubes of Mummy Brown and a color chart. During the 16th century, a new, transparent paint pigment hit the market. Called Mummy Brown (Caput Mortuum or Egyptian Brown), the pigment quickly became a favorite amongst artists who used it for shadows and flesh tones. The source of the paint wasn’t a real concern. See, the pigment was made from ground up Egyptian mummies—human and feline....

Tulane University’s Two Mummies Have Attended 3 Super Bowl Games

Tulane University hosted 3 Super Bowl games: IV in 1970, VI in 1972, and IX in 1975. The crowds of 80,000+ people never knew that underneath the bleachers tucked in a storage room were two Egyptian mummies. Theirs was a lurid story. George Robbins Gliddon (1809-1857) was the former US vice consul in Egypt. He fashioned himself an Egyptologist and assembled the “Gliddon’s Transparent Panorama of the Nile” exhibit that traveled the United States in the mid-1800s....

Undated postcard. The Waverly Hills Historical Society thanked the Louisville Metro Police. On January 26, the Louisville Metro Police responded to an unusual call.

Upon arrival, the police were assured by the people who run Waverly Hills that all of the props were just that: props....

The Great Potoo, Mother Nature’s Incredibly Spooky Bird

A great potoo with its mouth open. Yes, the strange bird of epic memes is real. It is the great potoo, a nocturnal large-mouthed, large-eyed bird that emits the creepiest of moans. The great potoo is a fascinating bird. It sits in camouflage for extended periods of time, which makes it difficult to spot. Young birds learn to sit quietly alongside their parents for hours....

Ye Olde Fighting C***s Public House Closes, But Is It Haunted?

Britain’s oldest public house (pub), Ye Olde Fighting C***s, formerly titled as The Fighting C***s Public House, has temporarily closed its doors. News spread with the owners Mitchells & Butlers stating that new management is being sought. However, here is the question I want answered: Is it haunted? According to Guinness World Records, the pub was listed as the oldest public house in Great Britain up until 2000, when the record was classified inactive as it was impossible to verify....

#VampiresInAmerica Is Total Bogus

Posted on Twitter. The tweet has a link to the 4-minute trailer. It's all you need to see. The Travel Channel has sunk to a new low. Attempting to cash in on the “documentary” market, the network developed a preposterous show where America’s only self-professed vampire hunters Eric Streit and Marcel Von Tingen seek out these blood thirsty creatures. Two. In the entire nation....

“Haunted” Earlshall Castle for Sale

On July 22, 1680, Sir Andrew, 6th Baron of Earlshall, Bruce earned his nickname: Andrew “Bloody” Bruce. After killing Covenanter Richard Cameron, Andrew hacked off his hands and head. He then took the trophies to Richard’s father, who was imprisoned in Edinburgh. Andrew then hoisted the severed head and displayed it at various locations. Although Andrew died in 1696, his footsteps have been heard for centuries at Earlshall Castle....

America’s Last Vampire Exhumation: Mercy Lena Brown

In the late 1800s, America was in the midst of a vampire panic. This was directly linked to the outbreak of tuberculous, or consumption as it was called then. The undereducated citizens didn’t understand epidemiology. And people, especially those in rural communities, distrusted medical doctors. It was easier to believe that a person who died from consumption yet seen walking through the cemetery was a vampire than to come up with another, more logical reason, for supposed hauntings....

For Halloween, Read Shirley Jackson

Jackson with the book covers of various books. American writer Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” (1948) is studied in nearly every public high school in the U.S. The short story was published on June 26, 1948, in The New Yorker, and generated so much hate mail, that the magazine had parcels sent up to Jackson. Although Jackson lived her adult life struggling with severe anxiety and depression, she is one of America’s premier American Gothic writers....

Stingy Jack: The Story of the Jack-o-Lantern

This may be my favorite Halloween tradition story. In America, we owe our Halloween traditions to the Irish. Halloween was not celebrated as extensively in America until the Irish Potato Famine (1845-1852), where 1.5 million Irish people immigrated to America bringing their rich traditions. One story was "Stingy Jack." The reason Jack placed pieces of burning coal inside smaller root vegetables is because pumpkins were not available in Ireland....

Mrs. John Krebs. Mrs. John Krebs had a problem. Every year at Halloween, her meticulously maintained flower garden was destroyed by mischievous children running around at night. On October 31, 1914, Elizabeth Oehler Krebs (11.19.1848-8.19.1931) organized the first Hiawatha Frolic. It is recognized as the longest consecutive Halloween parade. Back then, women were called by their husbands’ names. Hence, you need to Google “Mrs....
