Summary

“A whirlwind ride through the spooky and supernatural, including a ghostly Civil War leftover” (SWVA Today).   The nighttime glow of the Cameo Theatre illuminates an apparition of the infamous madam Pocahontas Hale, and the ghost of a young Confederate soldier rises from Cedar Hill to gaze mournfully on his lost homestead—these are the haunts of the Twin Cities. Local author Bud Phillips takes readers on an eerie, and sometimes humorous, journey through the ghostly lore of Bristol, Virginia and Tennessee. From the terrifying specter of a headless hobo and the spirits of a young couple parted through violence and reunited in death to the organist who played the Sunday after her funeral, Phillips’s collection of tales raises the otherworldly residents of Bristol from the shadows.   Includes photos!
Available since: 08/27/2010.

    ** Fair warning:  This is a true story of sexual abuse, drugs, rape, betrayal and triumph **
    
    
    **Warning:  This book contains crude language and is not for the faint of heart**
    
    
    As I sat down to write this story about my life, I had to think a long time about how to start my story.
    
    I learned early that you cannot substitute water for milk on cereal so when there was no milk in the house, I just ate it dry.
    
    Dad was pretty cranky just as a general rule. He’d come home from work and throw a temper tantrum at all the dirty dishes and no supper and Mom would say, “Oh shut up and drink your beer.”
    
    It was not a nice thing, the way Len started treating me. I remember scenes like the time he pushed me and sat on me.
    
    I had to stop and think about what happened next in this sick saga.

    If you have been diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), you're not alone.  EBV is one of the most common viral infections in humans. Around 90% of adults in the United States have been infected at some point in their lives, and most people don’t even know it because the virus can be dormant for years.
     
    Based on the many misconceptions surrounding this virus, it seems to be a fairly benign ailment. It is often referred to as "mono" or "the kissing disease" because it is so easily spread by physical contact with an infected person. However, the symptoms of this virus can be worse than anyone realizes and far more dangerous than people are led to believe.
     
    But did you know that there are simple steps you can take to regain your health naturally? 
     
    From nutrition and supplements to lifestyle changes, the right approach can help you fight off EBV and leave you feeling better than you have in years. For more information on Epstein-Barr Virus, continue reading.
     
    In this guide, you’ll discover:
     
    The guiding principles of EBV management using natural methods
     
    The stages of the Epstein-Barr Virus
     
    EBV healing foods
     
    EBV healing herbs and food supplements
     
    How to diagnose and treat EBV infections
