Tonight, listeners get a double feature: “3:15” and “The Tie that Binds” from the King of Childhood Terrors…John Grover. You’ll be able to catch him LIVE at 6 p.m. ET by clicking here:
John grew up watching creature double feature with his brother on Saturday afternoons. This fueled his love of monsters, ghosts and the supernatural. He never missed an episode. In his spare time he loves to cook, garden, go to the theater to watch horror movies with his friends, read, talk about food, bake amazing desserts, play with his dog Buffy (yes named after the character in the TV show) and draw–albeit badly.
Some of his favorite TV shows and influences are The Twilight Zone, Tales from the Darkside, Space 1999, Battlestar Galactica, X-Files, Night Gallery, Monsters, Star Trek, and much more.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find “disconnecting” a constant struggle. It was nice to see that I’m not alone. And in a way, for me, this article is a call to action: I have to find a way to not be so wired. Even if it’s one day a week in which I don’t connect at all. How about you? Are you all wired up 24/7, like me? Does it bother you? If it does and you want to change it, how would you go about it?
How long do you spend on Facebook each day? How much time are you on Twitter? Biz Stone, one of Twitter’s founders, said he doesn’t think it’s healthy for people to be on Twitter for hours each day.

I shouldn’t be writing this post. I’ve been musing undecidedly over whether to give a written birth to it from thought, mainly due to the explicitly personal nature of it – but I suppose that is what writing is all about.
For a few weeks now, one of my balls has been troubling me. When I say ‘balls’, yes, I mean testicles. And when I say ‘troubling’ me, I mean killing me.
I feel that now I’ve got that dreaded ‘T’ word out of the way, I can write through the rest of this post. The pain started a few weeks back. A dull ache – nothing to arouse too much concern. Having had an operation as a child on the very same ball, after a sporting accident, I did begin to wonder if something had gone balls up and left me in a sticky situation.
Nah. It’ll pass.
