Nick Groff's First Live Performance

It's official!  Nick Groff of The Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures will be at the 2012 ScareFest Convention in Lexington, KY, promoting his new album.  This will be his first live performance.  Nick's first CD, in which he wrote, produced and sang on all the tracks, is called: The Other Side. The lyrics recant Groff's spiritual journey through life up to that point.

Besides being co-investigator and cameraman on the Ghost Adventures series, he is an executive producer and editor of the show.  

On October 31, 2011, Nick Groff and Santi DeOleo, Boston-based designer of Modus Collection, launched their collaborative line of custom shirts – aptly titled the “Phantom Collection”.  The “Phantom Collection” is a series of four limited edition designs that mesh Groff’s love and intrigue for the paranormal with Modus’ urban sophistication and signature chess inspiration.

Happy Mother's Day

Tomorrow, May 13, is Mother's Day.  If you are still lucky enough to have your mom, please be sure to tell her how much you love her.  If she has already passed on, remember all the good times you've shared with her and the many things she taught you.

I'm blessed to still have my mother with me and is in pretty good health considering she recently turned 84.  She has taught my siblings and me more by example than by anything she has verbalized.  As a child growing up with asthma, she was the one I always wanted to massage my chest, which I always thought helped me to breathe better.  During the last few days of my dad's losing battle with cancer, Mom was such a trooper.  The way she handled his illness and subsequent death were more than I would've been able to do.  She's always been there for us, no matter what.  Mom, I love you dearly.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, and women who have stepped up to the role of mom!
