Happy Halloween Newstalkers!

Do you do anything special to celebrate this glorious day? Now that my kids are all grown up and out of the house, I don't have to buy costumes, rush around the house getting dinner on the table, then getting them out the door so they can extort the neighbors for candy. I miss those days.

My daughter is having a Halloween party and Mr G and I are going as a priest and a nun. I thought we should put name tags on our costumes that say "K's Mom" and "K's Dad". We might still do that. I know it will get a laugh out of her.

I probably won't get any extortionists on this holiest of all nights because I have a 300 foot driveway and it's a bit scary in the dark. But I'll buy a bag of my favorite candy, leave the porch light on and hope for the best.

I have to make a pot of chili for tomorrow because tomorrow is our annual Chili Fest at work. We have a sign up sheet and I hadn't put my name down because I didn't want to "commit". A co-worker came by and asked if I was bringing chili because he always looks forward to mine. I said yeah, but I didn't my name down because I didn't want to commit, but just for you, A, I will put my name down and make a commitment.

you got my recipe for gringo chili? EZPZ to make. goes great with cornread muffins that have thinly sliced bits of green chiles mixed in the batter.

I don't think I have your recipe. I'm making chicken chili which involves cooked chicken and opening cans. I make the simplest chili in the world

chicken? wtf? mine is simpler. send me a PN and I'll give the recipe to you. I won't post it here because I don't want any teabags or thumpers to have it and claim it as their own. I already regret disclosing the chiles in the cornbread option.

BEST cornbread recipe EVER~! And EZPZ to make. [Love the "EZPZ" and I'm going to use it all the time because I get so damned exhausted typing 'easy peasy'. Too many strokes ... heh heh heh.]

Mexican Corn Bread

 2 - packages of corn bread mix [8-1/2 oz]
1 - medium onion chopped
2 - cups [8 oz] grated cheddar cheese
1 - can [14-3/4 oz] creamed corn
1-1/2 - cups [12 oz] of sour cream
4 - eggs beaten
1 - can [4 oz.] chopped green chilis
1/3 - cup vegetable oil

 In bowl, combine corn bread mix and onion; combine remaining ingredients; add to the cornbread mixture until just moistened. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish; bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes or until light brown and the edges pull away from side of pan. Refrigerate leftovers. [What fuckin' leftovers?] 

If we were having a party here, I'd make that and I'd bring a salted caramel cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory.

We're going to a party tonight. I live in a retirement community so there are no kids trick or treating. Well, there are some 60-year-old kids around, myself included at 70 plus. 

We decorated our neighbor's walker as a ''Muscle Car''....

Swell! I came out like a peach! We were so apprehensive with the power outages all around, but on our on little 'island' of energy! I am grateful, but sorry and sad for those who have power loss still and are suffering fire damages. I actually when looking for a transistor radio during this "promised" power outage and they were all sold out. Still, on my "to do" list. I will likely order one from Radio Shack online and have it delivered (a nice one) just in case. Although, it's November 1—can rain be far away?

I loved your description of your way of life. Fantastic, you say?

That's a relief to read. Thanks for updating me/us! 

Ya know, life always has big divots in the road,  but always put your best foot forward, use common sense and be willing to work your ass off, so yes, life is fantastic now. Did we suffer some very hard lessons along our way, hell yes, but we're good. I'm sure we are both on our last twenty, but I don't regret a thing and don't worry where it ends except I do hope I go first in our end as I know I will die of a broken heart if my hubby goes first.  But he would too, so there's that. I wouldn't want him any more miserable than I'd be either. Meantime, we both take every day as a gift and damn lucky we've had this time trying to take in every minute left.  How quickly a lifetime passes though. Seems like yesterday our kids were babies and our sole purpose was working for their betterment. They are grown now, repeating the same human evolutionary growth patterns.

My native Grandmother passed at 89. Hardly had a wrinkle. If I'm lucky!! I do have her complexion. She said her trick was she only used water to wash her face. So far her trick works. She didn't wear makeup either and I only wear lipstick. I hate makeup.  Wore enough it back when it actually looked good to wear cocktail eyes. 

I'll tell you though, my hands look 20 years older than my face. I don't really care though. They're hard working hands and always have been. I probably could have used gloves more, but I'd rather be straight hands on. My doctor told me a few weeks ago that I look very good for my age. I don't know about that but everyone around me looked to be 60ish and they were fairly wrinkled.

I bought a big bag of Reese's too just in case a beastie or two showed up. (Yeah, right!) Damn, no beaties so I'm going to have to devour some Reese's myself. There goes the stable blood sugar I've worked so hard at maintaining all year. The sugar free ones taste like crap. Damn Halloween candy! Those candy makers get us every year. Life is too short for celery sticks alone, though. ;-)

I'm not ready for chili quite yet. Usually make a pot for Superbowl Sunday.

The love of kids! I remember  it well. Ya know, I've never really been a fan of twix, but no matter. I rarely eat sweets, but there is something about this time of the year. We went on a 2 week road trip down the western seaboard recently. One day while shopping I ran across the candy aisle (which I try to avoid like the plague) but looking for sugar-free treats for hubby. I came across Ghirardelli dark chocolate salted caramel center squares and thought, ahh on vacay, indulge yourself silly! So I did. Holy shit that is good stuff for not being the most premium candy. I have a feeling I'm not going to forget they exist very easily. I'm not into running to wear off the calories anymore and I don't want to be. I'm at the age now, it doesn't matter anymore to me to be healthier than a horse, but I do try to maintain healthy eating habits as much as reasonably possible just to keep the pipeline from clogging. My love for Martini's and Tequila shots with beer cause enough damage, I'm sure. ;-)

Glad to hear your tornado watch ended and you're safe!

I've been reading articles about people that want to move Halloween to the weekend or are complaining because the weather is going to be crappy tonight so it should be postponed until tomorrow night...here it's supposed to rain and high winds start around 8. 

We were "working parents" and we still found time to take our son trick or treating 

My son trick or treated no matter the weather....there were years when it was snowing and that didn't stop us.

What the f... is up with people these days...are kids going to melt in the rain?

Agreed. I remember ToT'ing in a snow flurry a lot of times (Northern Indiana as a young'n) AND the rain. Here, weather guys are concerned because we could see some storms and wind later on. That I agree with.........to an extent but there are scattered neighborhoods that have already switched "the night" for trick or treating. Some Friday, some Saturday. And it is going to be chilly as the low those nights are going to be in the thirties. Hell, with them doing that, there will probably be some stringers that even give it a shot on Sunday.

we'd spend the week before creating elaborate unique costumes, then it would snow on halloween. we'd have to wear winter coats, ruining our costumes, to go go trick or treating. out would come the sheets to wear over our winter wear and the entire neighborhood would look like a fucking klan rally.

Happy Halloween! Doing nothing in particular except staying in, reading by the woodfire.  So rural, no kiddies darnit! Somehow, sugar free candy isn't quite as fun as raiding a bag of Reese's! 🤪

I wish I could go fishing Trout! Happy fishing! Today, we are winterizing the RV, boat and moving new stock of wood into the woodshed.  Winter cold is coming on fast in my neck. At least no more mowing is necessary. Last year we had 3-4 feet of snow for several months. It is a trick to keep a path cleared for our mini Aussie. I usually try to tarp an area off the deck, lay down straw for her but last year the snow fall made that impossible to keep up with, so kept shoveling a path so she could get to the carport. Hopefully not as much snow this year but there is something totally awesome about being snowbound.

I wouldn't mind being snow bound if I had a fireplace.

Mr G just took our camper in to get it winterized yesterday. Next fishing trip is in May when we fish for rainbow trout. We just went camping 2 weekends ago where we fished for anything we could catch

We just had ours installed last spring. Loving it. Nothing more soothing than the heat of the woodfire. It was not cheap (5K) but the best investment to date. Our power is underground so it's rare we suffer longterm outages. I go into great pain during low pressure season. It really helps soothe my bones and now we have a backup when the grid goes down during the next civil war when Trump is removed. ;-) We can even cook on it. Have all the wood resources we need surrounding us.

Uh, well not so much from me.. I'm much more eclectic in taste than Norman Rockwell style but yep, life is good in my neck of the woods. I cannot complain. Norwegian, Native American, Fish Art. We are kindred souls of the Salmon. That's hubby and me. Not quite as rustic as I'd love to be really. I'd give anything to build a traditional long house and have more time for home and garden but I'm still a working woman and so I'm still on the run more than I wish I was, at times any way. Then again, I love my career too and doubt I'll ever really retire. 

I do have a few Norman Rockwell platinum ingots buried somewhere in my safe, but that's about as close as that gets. I appreciate his art but it's a time gone past and he left out such a big part of real America, behesting to just one culture of it.

Halloween, one of the best and most fun times of the year. It should be declared a national holiday like Thanksgiving or Xmas.

Halloween is supposed to be about the unseen. That is what it was originated for.      Ghosts, unseen forces, the realm of the dead, " 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed."

What is there to this existence that we cannot see, or explain?  Does the supernatural exist in reality? But even if it is only in the imagination, doesn't it have worth in making life more interesting? 

In recent decades Halloween has become more about monsters and serial killers and Star wars characters and so on than about ghosts and goblins and witchcraft. 'Horror' movies usually involve a bloodbath .  I like the old ways better.

What's especially odd is that they crossed that threshhold into your actual porch! I've never seen a duck or ducks crowd around a front door before, especially when the porch is recessed like that. How'd you do that?? Do they say "is that corn in your pocket, or are you just glad to see us"?

While the boys stay low and follow the streets back to the lake, the girls swoop right over the houses easily.

They are also one of the few roosting ducks, they have impressive talons to grip branches etc.

some woman came to my door with her 2 small-ish dogs on leashes. Rosie puffed her fur up to twice her size and made a beeline for the door in full attack mode I caught her in waist high mid-leap over the threshold while the woman yanked on both leashes and freaked out. potential kitty carnage avoided. she would have shredded both those yappers to bits.

When I was little, we had the meanest cat in the world, second to his mama.  He chased off the neighbor's Siberian husky.  It only ventured into our yard once.

His mama was just as mean, but she was sneaky.  She'd lure you in by rubbing against your legs and purring, then she'd purr as you scratched her ears...

and then...

flay you to ribbons.

She was my grandpa's cat, and he would laugh sadistically at anybody who fell for her feline wiles.

That was done by creating a rectangle out of 1/2" PVC (painted black).   The skeleton's butt is attached to one end of the rectangle and its feet are attached at the corners of the opposite side of the rectangle.   It holds up to heavy wind and you cannot see the base given the black roof so it actually does look like the skeleton is sitting upright on the roof.    The magic of PVC, paint and mono filament.    jrSmiley_100_smiley_image.jpg      ( You can buy these at your local 'satanic' supply depot. )

In this case a true problem is not with world religions, acceptance of "ancient points of view," or diverse lifestyles. It is with those persons who can not accept and abide alternately good choices made by others. In the case of the commenter in question. I "get" his version of being sold out to a life of Jesus Christ while in the Earth. What I do not understand is this need to chastise people who are not members of his faith 'network.' For surely, there are people in the body of Christian faith (and teachings) who are not agreed on the larger points of what is this or that. Even so far as to multiple techniques of what is required to be "saved" by God for God's purposes in eternity.

Why should the commenter mess with outsiders, at times like this?

Priceless!  You're making me so miss kitties! 

After our last big guy Uncle Torvald 23 lb Abby left us from Leukemia which has been about 20 years now, I swore off kitties entirely. He really was Garfield hilarious. The coolest cat around. He loved playing our piano in the early morning hours when he wanted to wake us to go out. If that didn't get our attention he'd jump on my hubby's head.

Had 27 cats at one time. Most were barn cats butt it did get out of hand. Still, everyone had a name and I can still name them all. I can only say I went through a phase as I never could stand to think about there being homeless kitties so I took in anyone and every ones.

Well your post cracked me up! 

I'll tell you what didn't though. I'm still scratching my head and thought about it again today with some of the creepy memes. One day a few weeks ago, there was a statue type witch display at home depot. It was fairly tall. As I walked by, I noticed the father was holding what appeared to be his son (who looked to be about 4ish) up to the witch's head holding a toy chain saw pretending to cut the witch's head off which it did have painted blood running down.  How the hell can that be healthy mentally for any child? I don't  know if the chainsaw went with the display or what --but that whole scene was frightening to me as a Mom and Grammy. Sometimes I worry this goes way too far.

I would have thought that was strange too. Times like that I think...wtf...then wish I was recording. Haha

I guess I am desensitized. The only horror movies that can scare me now are the more physiological thrillers. Just gore is blah.

One time my uncle sat on the porch (in a rocking chair) in costume. Would remain completely still. Kids would stop and talk about whether he was real or not. Finally one of them would walk up and get close enough for him to grab their arm. Freaked the hell out of some.

Another time he lay in a makeshift coffin, jumped up.

I'm not into gore, psycho thrillers, scary movies, zombies or any of that shit. Of course you can't watch a movie today that doesn't have some element of gore, butt! I always thought it crazy to do things that invite negative feelings. It's much more fun feeling groovy. I was never into chasing adrenalin rushes. Well, unless its seeing Neil Young play Hurricane on Old Black live during a monsoon! ;-)

There were a few determined trick-or-treaters out this evening.  We're under a tornado watch.  Just as I got home, the skies opened up.  I hope all the kids got under shelter before it hit.

The last 2 days have been rainy and warm, but we have a cold front moving through.  That's bringing high winds and about a 25-30 degree drop in temps.  So most kids skipped trick-or-treat, and towns here wouldn't postpone.  Some folks are a bit pissed off.

No frost here, but it did get cold, and we had rain and wind most of the night.

We have the occasional late October snow, so it's not terribly unusual for it to be cold here on Halloween.  But this temp change was abrupt.  It was 75 when I was driving home last night, and it's probably in the 40s right now.

Same here spring through fall, but not so much in winter.

So I kept my ears open, listening for any change in the wind last night, ready to head for the basement if needed.   They called off our tornado watch around 10.

I was on another thread just now reading and adding about a significant warrior and came over here to your comment. . . It made me tear up a little bit. Because Michael was not really happy with his life as it was. I know he said he changed his skin color due to a skin disease, but the added nose and chin enhancements were sort of a dead give-away as to something much deeper going on. He had the proverbial, "everything" and still the joy of being 'whole' escaped him.

It reminds me of something I heard about the great actor, Dudley Moore of the movie, "Arthur" and the song fame, Arthur's Theme,. . . I wasn't going to post the song but it is so beautiful and brings back the movie vividly to me. I can't help myself.

Christopher Cross - Authur's Theme- lyric video

Dudley Moore, it was said was sensitive all his life about his height. I never noticed his stature in this movie, because his outrageous and gregarious laughter coupled with a 'tragic' portrayal of a wealthy drunk kept it real for me. Well, in Michael's case, he once gave an interview where he pointed out that one time he met a fan (at some point) and the fan was not impressed by his facial features (She said he was ugly.) and the effect was lasting, I guess.
