If I want to talk to someone about my health, then I want to talk to my doctor. If I want to talk to someone about the state of my house's plumbing, then I talk to my plumber. If I want to talk to someone about the ghost stories of Nova Scotia — then I want to talk to Vernon Oickle. The man knows his stuff.
