Each hybrid has a compelling list of attractive attributes and carries its own story. David Austin’s senior rosarian Michael Marriott joins us to talk about these lovely new roses and will also share care and maintenance tips for growing English Roses in your own garden.

It was built by Freelan Oscar Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame and opened on July 4, 1909, catering to the rich and famous, including the RMS Titanic survivor Margaret Brown, John Philip Sousa, Theodore Roosevelt, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and a variety of Hollywood personalities. The hotel and its surrounding lands are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Stanley Hotel also hosted the horror novelist Stephen King, inspiring him to write The Shining. Parts of the television mini-series version of The Shining were filmed there, whereas Stanley Kubrick's cinematic adaptation The Shining was filmed at another resort hotel, the Timberline Lodge in Oregon (besides Elstree Studios in England).
The Stanley Hotel shows the uncut R-rated version of Kubrick's feature film on a continuous loop on Channel 42 on guest room televisions.

Tuesday brings in part 7 of The Bane Chronicles, and we see that Magnus Bane apparently can't help but make another trip to Hotel Dumort, in The Fall of the Hotel Dumort. Who could be there to lure him back after the tragedy of the last known experience he's had there? This time, it's those bloody vampires again that drag him there, but which one? Could it be a possible vampire baroness from generations past? Or could it be a suave, forever teen-looking vampire of Latin descent?
There will be *spoilers* on the story!
But before that, we'll have some announcements of what's goin

Milling About visits Hotel Zero 1 in Montreal, Canada. Senior Marketing Manager Michele Cantin tells host Robin Milling it's an ideal location just steps away from Chinatown and the cultural district Quarter des Spectacles, ripe with art, music and food festivals. For sightseers the Old City and the Old Port are a short walk away. This chic boutique-style property was once home to students attending nearby University of Quebec. The walls are concrete so the renovation focused on the 163 rooms which are stylized for comfort with just enough room for the essentials. The minimalist European aspect might not appeal to Americans looking for lots of space but you soon trade that for efficiency and charm. The beds are the centerpiece with 250 thread count sheets and microfiber duvet and pillows. The cupboards contain kitchenettes with hideaway appliances such as a mini refrigerator and coffeemaker.
Cantin is no stranger to the hospitality business having worked at a spa, but jumped at the chance to launch the opening of Hotel Zero 1 just two years ago, named for the address on Boulevard Rene-Levesque. She says being the new player in the city, they are the talk of the town. Their best kept secret is the 5 floor terrace where you can be very French and just take in the views of the city with a bottle of wine. It's a taste of France just six hours drive from New York City.
The amount of money spent in the hotel and resturant buienssiness is many times larger thatn the dollars that are exchanged in the retail business.
