Scandalous Cambridge Legend & the Only Good Stephen King Sequel

If the Ghost Hunts have done anything, they’ve exposed the energy surrounding the beautiful, old Cambridge Post Office.  Does deep belief in a ghost manifest the energy?  We think so.  Emily is the ghost at the old Post Office.  Wrapped up in a scandalous affair with the Postmaster. Until her body is found hanging from the rafters on the third (top) floor.  Foul play?  Maybe. Real legend?  Who knows!  Daniel talks about experiences in the Cambridge building. 

Then tries something new!  Discussing ghostly movies he really enjoyed.  Doctor Sleep isn’t clearly a sequel to The Shining, but this becomes clear with the protagonist, Danny Torrance. The adorable “Redrum” kid from the original, now all grown up, and still super psychic.  Why he likes it so much.
