Trick-or-Treating During the Pandemic

I was just wondering if anyone here-about was planning on handing out candy for Halloween, even though there is a pandemic? Are you doing standard candy dispensing, or something modified like a "delivery tube" so you can maintain "social distancing"?... or are you playing it safe...

Re: Salem witch trials hanging spot found.

The podcast "Unobscured" has a great Season 1 podcast all about the Salem Witch Trials. It's great! Very well edited and pieced together. It deals with experts outlining their research and historical documentation of the event. It's very, very good on the level of research/history/truth, a...

Re: Pumpkin Sculpting

... I found out Ray Villafane lives a short ways away from me a couple years ago. He puts on this 3D carve festival in Carefree, AZ every October. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo share service anymore, so I can't drop in photos of his work-- but you can google him to see some sweet stuff. He als...

Re: do you believe in ghosts and the paranormal?

I believe in ghosts, but I like to keep things open ended too... Experienced a few strange things that I couldn't outright explain. I know I've posted those stories on several occasions, but I got tired of writing it so I posted it in a blog I co-author... and haven't written in much since I had kid...

Re: Need decorating ideas

We'll need more to go on. What style of Halloween are you looking for? Cute? Gothic? Gore?... any theme for this year?

Re: It's August!

Already been Halloween shopping! Finding it difficult to refrain from going wild because I am still on maternity leave, and car insurance is due next month... I splurged on some cast iron keys and a new skull for my collection... sometimes I warn people about my skull collection, so they don't freak...

Re: Where oh where has everyone gone!!!

Minion 2 has Halloween spirit. I put her in Halloween jammies all the time! The white sheep comment had me cracking up. I am the white sheep in my family.... disturbing as that is... We are giving serious thought to Cartoon Network's punk Teen Titans from the "Night Begins to Shine" specia...

Re: Where oh where has everyone gone!!!

I wouldn't have minded having more kids-- kinda wanted 3-4... but... me being pregnant is like buying a seat to watch the 1896 train wreck in Crush, TX... I may only be 36, but I have a lot of city miles on these bones. My husband and I can predict the weather. =) Murf- Very cool you can trace your ...

Re: Where oh where has everyone gone!!!

I am done with the whole brood-making thing. The first put me in the hospital for 6 weeks with pre-eclampsia. The second gave me gestational diabetes... Two is good... especially with me almost dying once. I'm pushing 40 if I wait the recommended 2 years for the incision to heal... I don't want a ki...

Re: Where oh where has everyone gone!!!

... I get really excited when it's June and my son announces what he wants to be for Halloween! Now, I just need to figure out how to dress up minion no. 2, who joined my brood early in June a la my second "splash and slash". Wanted the hubby to photograph my guts... but he was more than s...

Re: Bye.

I'll take some of the blame. As a moderator, I've been doing a pretty poor job of maintaining this place. Forgive me, though-- my husband knocked me up, and I don't make a very good host for parasites. Also had some computer issues-- upgraded to Windows 10, but didn't have dual-core so it was laggy-...

Re: I Ate Target’s Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn So You Don’t Have

LOL! My husband had to try them because... he likes to try weird things. He said it was surprisingly good.

I haven't tried it yet, even under his recommendation.

It's the right time to get one started up... I'm finally checking in. Give them another week or so.
