Re: Dracula TV Show 2013-2014 anyone seen it?

I watched it right through. The character seemed to be less Dracula and more a vampire version of Nicholai Tesla. There was definitely room for more story, but it probably worked best as a mini-series.

Re: How Old Is Too Old to Trick-Or-Treat on Halloween? - TIME

We generally felt that the transition from elementary school to high school was a good cut-off point. So grade 8 would be the last year. It was considered too childish for high-schoolers.

Re: It's September already!!

That is beautiful! I love repurposing things! Two weeks ago, on Craigslist, there was a piano listed for free. I had the hubby and two others run out and grab it. It needs minor scratches repaired and that't it!! It may have issues inside. It almost certainly needs tuning and could a number of mech...

Re: Feeling it today.

Those curtains have a wonderful country fall flavor to them.

I just switched my computer's desktop background to Halloween pictures. I'll have to find more to add to them.

You may be able to get ABC off-air, depending upon where you live and assuming your set can handle digital off-air.

Re: Halloween Night Frights (2013)

I have it listed as running on DTOUR in Canada on the 20th at 2pm. DTOUR carries a lot of the US Travel Channel shows. They're also running the Halloween Crazy/Crazier/Craziest shows.

Re: Snow Before Halloween

I can remember snow before Halloween but nothing serious enough to cause any problems. Usually the problem is the cold. Although with the weather this year it could have a big impact. It's suppose to rain on Halloween which will likely reduce the number of ToTers. We'll have to see if the storm canc...

Re: Pumpkin seeds sell at any grocery store?

If you look in the bulk food stores, but usually not the bulk section of a grocery store, you can often find them. However, it's hard to find ones as good as fresh. And they tend to be seasonal. I have bought them in the store before and when they're fresh enough they're fairly good, although off-se...

Pumpkin Pizza

Pumpkin Pizza Here's a recipe for pizza that's ideal for Halloween parties. It's also good for those who have trouble with nightshade plants (like tomatoes and peppers) and acidic foods. Surprisingly, it can taste close enough to regular pizza that some might not realize it's not a regular pizza or ...

Re: Lawmaker wants to change date of Halloween!

As a kid it was best when Halloween was on a Friday because you could get up the next day and watch cartoons while eating candy. Of course I don't recall those days because I was too high on sugar. :) The only awkward day for Halloween is Sunday because of the religious context, although Mondays are...

Re: 666 Park Avenue

I've been watching it. It seems the second episode was better than the first. But I don't like the continuing storyline with the photographer and writer. It would be better for all the sub-stories to wrap up in a single episode. It's like the writers can't decide whether to make it episodic or seria...

Re: Why isn't The Halloween Tree on DVD?

I think the reason it was never widely released on DVD was because it was an HB production. They folded and their library was bought out by WB which bought up much of the Rankin Bass library as well. It's mainly because there wasn't someone to release the material that it didn't get out. And there c...
