Dark Shadows, Greenies and Other Scary Stuff

Gothic soap Dark Shadows has long been one of my passions - opposed to the much newer somewhat supernaturally inspired soap Passions which, based on admitedly little personal viewing experience, is merely a pale shadow (dare I say, loose immitation) of Dark Shadows. Anyway, since a big event in DS land is coming up this year, I feel compelled to announce the following in an effort to alert all fans and friends out there lurking in the shadows who may be interested.

Hard as it may be to believe, this year marks the 40th Anniversary of Dark Shadows, which first aired in the Spring of 1966. The festivities will be taking place in Brooklyn, NY at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge the weekend of August 25-27, 2006. Anyone wanting more information regarding the festival rates, actors who will be attending and other upcoming details should go to the official Dark Shadows Festival web page. As I write this, they have not updated their page to include all pertinent info yet - but it should be coming soon. Hotel information can be found currently on the Dark Shadows Alumni News Blog - be sure to look for the group rate code mentioned there before making your reservations.

Now - how about those darned Greenies dog treats? Sadly a very disturbing segment on CNN aired last night concerning this very popular treat. I would urge all dog owners to read this article if you didn't see the program (last night (2/14/06).
