“You’ve got to accentuate the positive!”

Those were the lyrics of a Johnny Mercer tune. This song also provided the opening for the critically acclaimed, yet sadly, short lived ABC drama, Homefront.  Homefront began in 1993 and ran for only two seasons. It traced the lives of the citizens of the factory town of fictional River Run, Ohio in the post World War II era.

Happy Birthday @Shoshannah7 via @tdmiller820917 #Supernatural @cw_spn #SPN

Supernatural fans were first introduced to actress Shoshannah Stern in the Season 11 episode “Into The Mystic.” Stern portrayed Eileen Leahy, a young deaf woman whose parents were killed by a banshee. This tragedy set Eileen on the course of becoming a hunter. When heroic hunting brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) found themselves hunting the banshee, they joined forces with Eileen. A kinship was formed between the trio, a bond further cemented  by the revelation that like the Winchesters, Eileen was a legacy of the Men of Letters.

Why @Sterlingkb1 deserves to win an #Emmy for @NBCThisisUs via @tdmiller820917 #Supernatural #ThisisUs

I’m a writer. I’ve published poetry books. I’ve interviewed actors, artists, authors and musicians. I’ve written articles and book reviews for The Nerdy Girl Express. In addition, I write a column with my twin sister Stacy titled “The Miller Twins Talk Supernatural” because Stacy and I are passionate fans of the CW’s longest running show about those Kansas born Winchester brothers (played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) who travel cross-country in their classic 1967 Chevy Impala (affectionately nicknamed Baby) to hunt supernatural evil and save people. It’s a thankless job, but for Sam and Dean Winchester, it’s their “family business.” They’re the guys who have given their lives to save the world.

Happy Birthday @FeliciaDay via @tdmiller820917 #Supernatural @GeekandSundry

Felicia Day makes it wonderful being a geek or a nerd!

When I was a teen in the 1980s, geek and nerd were bad four letter words. In high school, if you lived in “geekdom” and were a practicing nerd, you were sentenced to four years of social ridicule. The media happily mocked the geek and nerd in television and films. The geek and nerd were the high school underdogs dealing with mistreatment. Yet, visions of success swirled in their minds. Surely, they would have the opportunity to highlight their successes later at the high school reunion. Success…the true revenge of the nerds!

#Supernatural alum @RealAdamRose wants us to #LoveLouder via @tdmiller820917

If you were a child in the 1970s or a teen in the early 1980s like me, you might not have envisioned a powerful tool called the Internet where endless information is available for immediate consumption or the fact that global audiences can connect so easily. I often wonder how much easier my college or law school days would have been if Google had been born when I was a student.
