Phillip Kellam who is our C.O.R. here in Va. Beach is of this Kellam family and has major local ties. His family is also named on our Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. They are still alive and thriving here. My wife even went to Kellam High School. Trust me, it's a small world here in VB, or formally known as Princess Anne County, or Kellamsville. (The latter can not be verified, it was a joke). Thanks for posting this.

The Kellams, obviously, are a family of trees... Mr. Kellam to the right, plus Missus and all the little saplings. He's eyeing that fire with great trepidation, and I don't blame him.

The Boy Scouts would definitely not approve of this dicey setup. Unfortunately, they're several entries (and 20 years) back, occupied by their silver certificate deposits.

An early test shot for "The Blair Witch Project."

Itching already

My first reaction was look at all that poison ivy!
