This is one for my oldest son and his fascination with zombies. He has gotten it so that when I am driving around, I am actually looking at unusual buildings for their likelihood to survive zombie attacks. I am happy for all of us Central Vermonters to report that such a building exists in the form of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Brandon, VT. According to TJ, the architecture of the building (no windows on the first floor that we could see from the road) made it perfect for fighting off zombies. Personally, I think it is a pretty church building, but then, I am just a mom, aren’t I? No zombie expert here.
Amazingly, two Ottawa university research projects have done zombie research and have come to the conclusion that we humans would be dust if zombies did attack unless of course, we acted fast. Here’s the story, courtesy of the BBC, it actually is an interesting read as the research relates to infectious diseases. Who knows, maybe TJ is onto something….in his future might be the cure to some infectious disease with all this zombie knowledge he possesses.
We are spending a few days on vacation at the beach in Maine. Two motor homes, my inlaws, one of the boys’ friends and a cousin. A house (or houses) full. The weather has been enjoyable today and we are very fortunate since this is practically winter usually in Maine. It is in the 90s and sunny and absolutely gorgeous. I will post pictures soon.
