Mark! LOL, I had never seen The Shining until yesterday for the very first time!! Just thought that was too much of a coincidence to not share. I don't have too much of the opportunity that you have to homestead, but I am always very inspired when I read posts from you and Anna.

According to wikipedia Mr King and his wife got to the hotel at the last day of the season and spent the night as the only guests in such a huge hotel. That night he woke up in a cold sweat from a dream about his young son being chased down the hallway with a fire hose. He got up and wrote the outline for the Shinning in the time it took him to smoke.
