Do you remember the werewolf? During the full moon he turns all hairy, grows long fangs, and begins to slobber. Never let him catch you or you will turn into a werewolf too if he bites you. Once he becomes human again he’ll never remember just what he had done the night before. Sort of like going on an alcoholic bender only much worse. Among my favorite werewolf movies is the original 1941 movie The Wolf Man starring Lon Chaney, Jr. Well worth watching on Halloween. It will make you fear werewolves and gypsies too.
Roman Holiday is a fantastic romantic movie which premiered in New York City on August 27, 1953 and featured the wonderful actress Audrey Hepburn in her first movie role. In the movie Hepburn portrays a European princess who falls head over heels for an American journalist played by Gregory Peck. The movie earned her an Oscar for Best Actress and made her a famous Hollywood star.
If you’re like me you might not believe it, because I prefer tropical warmth to the cold, but Antarctica has become one of the world’s current popular tourist destinations. There are now over 34,000 people who travel to this icy cold land. However, you must be aware of the fact that all of the activity there is heavily regulated by the Antarctica Treaty in order to protect the environment. All of the tourism going on is mostly managed by the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators or IAATO.
“Even a man who is pure of heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf, when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright” – Kurt Siodmak
The cuisine of the city of Philadelphia in the US state of Pennsylvania developed through history, the arrival of immigrants and what ingredients were available. In the days gone by, city taverns were the main meeting places for politicians and businessmen in the 18th century, and two Philadelphia landmarks were created in the 19th century. They were the Reading Terminal Market and Italian market.

These are usually served with pork, beef, or poultry, and in some places, with freshwater fish.
