I posted this as # 150 on the previous "buried alive" thread...whoops, meant to start a new one...so here ya go!

As a fifty-one year old "youngster", it is rather sad what has happened to the carefree fun of Halloween. Going from house to house with your buddies, without parents... tricking (no, not that tricking) and treating until 11pm or later. It was good old fun. Parents did not worry like they do today. They did not have too.
I tell my 13 year old twin nephews of all our fun. They can NOT even imagine how we had all that freedom on Halloween night (and other nights). Of course, they can not imagine NOT having a computer or an IPOD either.
We get so few children on Halloween and I know every year it will be less and less. But for good old times sake, I continue to buy lots of awesome candy. My husband thinks I am nuts...but that is his problem...not mine...LOL!
OK, tiz time for me to reveal who I am...........

Just call me.....Spot...the fire breathing dragon who would LOVE to get a bottle of vino buried in a box.

Denise (your next to choose)
Dan
Kathy
Alana

Your choices....
Count von Count
Count Duckula
Herman Munster
Incredible Hulk

Correct me if I am wrong on the above.

I am off to get some alone time under the staircase and consume some Doggie Din Din.

Have a great night!

I choose Count Von Count. The watered down version of count dracula. O.K. time to count some bats or cobwebs or anything.

Dan, your turn. Dan, have you been into that bottle of wine. I thought you were saving it for one of us.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Spot, I am rolling on the floor at "no, not that tricking", oh my goodness! Too funny!

You have me remembering being a ten year old girl out trick-or-treating with my friends, pillow cases full of candy in hand, no parents, knocking on strangers doors, miles away from our starting point of our street. We walked for hours and no one bothered us except for the occasional group of silly boys. It was always a magical night full of freedom and laughter.

So different from bringing our kids out now. We live on a busy county road with no sidewalks and few children. A subdivision is directly behind our property so we walk the kids through the woods to trick-or-treat over there. We watch them walk up to each door and make sure they say please and thank you (after their goofy chimes of Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat). It is soooo different from the good old days. They love it just as much as we did but don't know how things used to be.

Enjoy your alone time under the staircase and do not gorge yourself too much on your Din Din!

Dan, I'm a tea (well coffee) totaller from way back so your generous offer would be lost on me, now hubby, on the other, hand would surely appreciate a good glass of wine. He's kind of cute when he's tipsy so why not? LOL!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I don't take my kids door to door...to many weirdo's. We visit relatives and then go to "trunk or treat". Local churches host their own event. They have church members decorate their cars in the church parking lot and then you walk around the parking lot and get candy. It sounds weird, but it is very safe and controlled. I also don't need to worry about my little guy getting scared. Most of them are dressed in cute costumes..one guy even dressed as Santa. There are at least 3 local churches that did this last year and we made it to two of them.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Is it really my turn? YAYYYYY!!!!!!! Okay, let's see now, who should I choose? There's Count Duckula, Herman Munster, and the Incredible Hulk left, sooooo, I choose..... Count Duckula!
And, here's what I dug up when I gaggled him...

Count Duckula is a British animated television series created by British studio Cosgrove Hall, and a spin-off from DangerMouse, a show in which the Count Duckula character was a recurring villain. The series first aired on September 6, 1988 and was produced by Thames Television for 3 seasons and Central Television for the fourth and final series. In all, 65 episodes were made, each about 22 minutes long. The complete first season was released on DVD in the UK on July 17, 2006. On March 26, 2007 the second series was released in the UK and the third series was released on September 3, 2007 in the UK, so all 65 episodes have been officially released there. It continues to have a large following on the internet. The show is a loose parody of the story of Count Dracula. Set in Transylvania, Duckula lives in a spooky castle known as Castle Duckula, alongside his butler Igor, and his large nanny (always referred to as "Nanny" and perpetually wearing an arm sling). Almost all of the characters in the show are anthropomorphised birds.
PLOT===============
The story (as shown in the title sequence each episode) is that Duckula has been active as a vampire for centuries. He could only be destroyed by exposure to sunlight or by a wooden stake thrust through his heart. In fact, Duckula has died numerous deaths but he always returns through a mystic ritual, performed once a century, "when the moon is in the Eighth House of Aquarius" (The opening credits depict Igor's incantation). Several episodes explore the theme that each resurrection creates a new incarnation with little to no memory of its past life; thus, every incarnation is free to develop its own personality and pursue its own personal interests. The vampire is thus able to pose as a "dreadful dynasty," the Counts of Duckula. The preceding generations included knights, sorcerers, scientists, artists, Egyptologists and even professional gamblers, all of whom were also secretly "vicious vampire ducks".

But as the title sequence put it, "the latest reincarnation did not run according to plan." The successful conclusion of the ritual requires blood, the source of sustenance for any vampire, but Nanny accidentally substituted tomato ketchup. Consequently, the newest version is not a blood-sucking vampire, but a vegetarian one. He is more interested in juicy carrots than hunting for victims. Naturally, Igor is appalled at this. Even worse, his "new" master is obsessed with pursuing wealth and fame as an entertainer.

The stories often centre around Duckula's adventures in search of riches and fame, assisted by the castle's ability to teleport around the world. Another regular theme is Igor's attempts to turn Duckula into a proper vampire. Some episodes feature Duckula's nemesis Doctor Von Goosewing (based on Dr. Abraham Van Helsing, the nemesis of Dracula), a vampire hunter who blindly refuses to believe the current incarnation of Duckula is harmless. There is also an array of bizarre, often supernatural foes, from zombies to mechanical werewolves. The show also features a cuckoo clock whose bat-like Russian-accented characters come out and make jokes about the current situation (or just corny jokes in general); the clock is also a vital part of the castle's travelling mechanism, and even has the ability to turn back time.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Hmmmmm, Dan, I am wondering if I happen to be Count Duckula. He kind of looks like me on a bad hair day which happens more than not. I don't like blood and I love vegies. That would mean you would be sending a box to me and I am not sure about that one. :) Could be scary. Did I mention I don't like scary? :0

Can't wait to find out. I have been plotting ideas for my box. Waiting, waiting, waiting. These swaps are just too much fun.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Hello!

I can't wait for partners!!

Halloween was always fun for us as kids. We, too, went all over the neighborhood. My kids still went around town when they were 6th graders. Right when they were getting too old to go. We live in a small town. Less than 800 people, closer to 600. I don't mind the scary stuff, and enjoy good scary movies. The ones that scare me the most are anything to do with the devil or being possessed.

Usually for Halloween, the neighboring communities have haunted houses, or parks. Usually my mom wants to come with and I think we have just as much fun as the kids. I'm usually laughing so hard that I darn near have an accident!! Last year it was indoors, and my mom and I went with my boys. My daughter goes with her friends. It was so dark and it was like a maze, and I got behind a small group of young girls, so I thought I would stay near them and let them 'lead' us out. I had my youngest by his shirt, so I wouldn't lose him, and pretty soon I hear this panicked (sp?) voice yelling "Karen! KA-ren!!" Here my mom got separated from me, and couldn't find us. So I was yelling "MOM!" But I was laughing so hard I could barely say it. Remember, you can't see anything!! And they play scary sounds, too. I imagine the adults putting it on, who are hiding and scaring you, get a kick out of the adults like us. The year they had it at the park, I went with my sister and her kids. They were much younger. I hadn't even had my youngest yet. I had to carry my son through the whole thing, and my sister was screaming, and we were laughing so hard. After that year, my mom started coming with. It's hilarious.

We get maybe 20 trick or treaters. Not as many as I think I would. The local Nursing Homes put on nice none-scary deals for the kids to go to, and that is where most of the trick or treaters go. Our school lets businesses come set up and hand out candy also.

Well, I suppose, I've got a book started, so I will wrap this up, and check back later!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Count Duckula, your quote, "So, what say you Little Tall?"........it does sound familiar but that is possibly because I have been thinking about it. I did a search and came up with NADA. I ran it by a few people who are into quotes and they were stumped for an answer. Little Tall...Little Tall...Little Tall, I rather like it! I would suspect it was said to a "little person"?????

Throw me some clues!!

FYI...I had forgotten that the 1999 Stephen King movie, "Storm of the Century", takes place on the ficticious "Little Tall Island". Has anybody seen the TV movie or read the book?

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Spot I also did a search for the quote and came up with nothing. I am stumped!!

It is a beautiful day here. I just got back from a wonderful walk with the kids. I was hoping to have a certain email in my inbox, but no such luck :-( Poor Alana is probably trying to recover from her busy day yesterday and here I am being impatient.

I am sure I can find something that needs to be done here at my house....

Sorry guys. We are having major storms here, but I will be back later and send out the emails. I plugged back up just to give you guys a heads up.
Last time I kept my computers plugged into the modem during this kind of storm I lost 2 computers and this time I did some serious upgrades so I am not taking chances.
Back asap.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

 o
RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Annie, you got the answer and didn't realize it. Now, that's funny! "What say you Little Tall?" was said by Robbie, the town manager in Storm of the Century. He said it at the town meeting held to decide if the town would give up one of their children. Here's a synopsis of the story. It does make a good and scary movie!

Synopsis of Stephen King's Storm of the Century...
A very powerful blizzard hits the fictional small town of Little Tall Island (also the setting of King's novel Dolores Claiborne) off the coast of Maine. While trying to deal with the storm, the citizens of the town are visited by Andre Linoge (Colm Feore), a menacing stranger who apparently knows all of the townsfolk's darkest secrets (among which are abortion, adultery, growing marijuana, and gay-bashing). After having killed one of the town's residents (Martha Clarendon), Linoge is jailed. Even though he is kept in jail by the town's trusted constable, Mike Anderson (Timothy Daly), Linoge is somehow able to force people to commit suicide or kill others from within his cell. Linoge constantly repeats "Give me what I want and I'll go away" through his victims as well as to his victims. Interestingly, although the adults are terrified of the stranger, all the children are drawn to him.

In a dream, the townspeople see themselves walking into the sea two-by-two with the word Croatoan (a reference to the colony of Roanoke) carved on their heads. Eventually, Mike figures out that Linoge is the demon Legion (the former an anagram of the latter) and agrees to organize the townspeople so they can hear his demands.

What Linoge desires is an heir, one of the eight small children that he had incapacitated early on in the miniseries someone to "carry on his work when he can no longer do it himself", as although Linoge's life spans millennia, he is not immortal. Any of the eight children, he states, will suit him. After he leaves, a strong argument breaks out in the town hall. Mike Anderson wants the townsfolk to unitedly reject Linoge's request, saying it would be better for all of the adults and children to die than to give Linoge a child to raise. He thinks that if they all say no to him in unison he will go away just like a storm. Mike asks "how can they give a child to that man?" Robby, the town manager, asks another question "Even if they manage to survive Linoge, how would they feel knowing they got all eight children killed?" The others argue that the child would not die, and might even develop certain advantages like the ability to use magic, and to live for a very long time. But the biggest argument is that to deny Linoge would mean the death of all the children, and nothing is worth letting eight children die, not even doing the right thing or the grief of the parents whose child would be raised by Linoge. Because of this, the rest of the town (including Mike's wife, Molly) want to agree to Linoge's demand; they are fearful that the eight children will die if Linoge is not satisfied, and all the adults will be forced to drown themselves as Linoge has promised. After all, it seems that the village of Roanoke defied Linoge, and they all died, including the children. Over Mike's arguments, the town gives in to Linoge's demand. A random drawing is organized by Linoge, and after drawing the single black-colored weirding stone, Ralphie Anderson (Mike's and Molly's son) is chosen. At that, Linoge removes Ralphie from the town over Mike's and Molly's emotional breakdowns. Mike divorces Molly, telling her he "has run out of reasons to stay."

In the film's epilogue, Mike explains (in voiceover narration) that the community of Little Tall, which specializes in keeping secrets, has tried to heal from the traumatic events by attempting to return to a state of normalcy. The epilogue reveals that Mike, angry that the town (and his wife) was willing to sacrifice his child to appease pure evil, divorces Molly and leaves town. Molly, who is now remarried to Mike's deputy, has been going to therapy, in which she continues to deny what really happened to her son but admits (for reasons she refuses to specify) that Mike was right to leave her. Mike, meanwhile, is working as a federal marshal stationed in San Francisco, when he spots Linoge and Ralphie on a busy street. Mike calls out to his son and they stop to look back at him. Ralphie makes eye-contact with him and bares his teeth to him; they are fangs, showing that Ralphie is no longer human. Mike is horrified to see this. However, before Mike has a chance to react, he loses them both in the crowd, and they vanish down a long alley. In a closing voiceover, Mike says he considered calling Molly to tell her but "in the daylight, I know better."

Alana, don't feel pressured to "name names". Wait until those storms pass and protect your pcs. We'll wait.

Hey cAROL, none of us knows who we are yet. Pat's right on target. We only know that we have a certain character to send to. You send to Barnabus and I send to Thing and so on. Alana will email you with BC's addy this evening or whenever the storm passes. Don't worry about the confusion. We all have shared that experience in the group.

Alana, I'm praying that you don't have storm damage again. Stay low!

Tracy - LOL! I think even you are confused. I went back to the original thread to read this from Alana:

"Starting with Heidi and proceeding in order of the list each person will choose which personality they would like to receive a box from. We should be through with this by midnight Thursday. On Friday, I will send each person an email that discloses their assigned identity along with the address of the person they are sending to."

So I think when cAROL chose Barnabus, she was choosing to receive a box from Barnabus, right? She doesn't know what character has been assigned to her (cAROL) of which player is Barnabus. Only Alana knows.

I'm not reading that wrong, am I?

No storm damage for me this time but Barbourville Online has been down and is just now back up. We are supposed to have storms tonight and tomorrow too, but after that we are supposed to have a blessed week of temps that don't get out of the 70's. Sweet relief!
I have enjoyed reading all of your Halloween memories! My family has always been very Halloweeny.
I'm cooking up the next game.I know what it is, but it will take a little time to pull it together.

I will post it in a couple of days, but I will give a warning beforehand so you will be expecting it.
Tracy, Please let me know when the little friend I sent you arrives. I'm sure the mailman will be okay as long as he does not open the box.....
I need to check my email and then I will start sending everyone their identities and the address they will be sending to.
I hope everyone sent me their address-I have not had time to verify that I have them all. If not, please do so as soon as you can.

My bad. I should have checked before. Lisa, Carmen and Kathy, I can't find your addresses. You probably sent them to me, but if you sent it through GW, apparently there have been problems with the email for the past couple of weeks.
I don't want to send these out until I have them because some folks may be able to figure out who they are receiving from because of the omissions.

I think I got that right!
Alana
I will start emailing once I have these.
In the meantime, this is a summary of who you are receiving from.
Heidi is receiving from Morticia
Tracy is receiving from Thing
Karen is receiving from Lurch
cAROL is receiving from Barnabas Collins
Margo is receiving from Uncle Fester
Lisa is receiving from Samantha
Becky is receiving from Lily Munster
Annie is receiving from Spot
Denise is receiving from Count von Count
Dan is receiving from Count Duckula
Kathy is receiving from Herman Munster
Alana is receiving from Incredible Hulk

On another completely different note, I've been issued a "come hither and harvest" today by my parents, so tomorrow morning I'm heading out to the farm and bringing home a bunch of veggies. How cool is that? They're tired of canning tomatoes, so I'm getting a bunch of romas. And, I know I'll be bringing home a lot of onions. Who knows what else? So, tomorrow it's going to be a good day! First I'll be visiting with my parents, and then I'll be in the kitchen doing a bit of canning. Sounds good to me!

So what's everyone else doing this weekend?

Well, I just ruined dinner. I am so mad at myself! I grabbed hot paprika at the grocery store without realizing it and threw a ton of it into the pan with my chicken that I was browning. I thought the paprika's color was a little off so looked at the canister again and saw that there it was plain as day "HOT PAPRIKA". I thought, how hot can hot paprika be so I tasted it and it wasn't too bad... at first. Then my tongue started to tingle, then the roof of my mouth started to burn, now I'd be willing to chop my tongue out with a cleaver to get it to stop this fire in my mouth. It is horrid!

I'm also thinking pretty seriously about braiding a rug this winter. once the colder weather hits, I get pretty crafty. I guess, deep down, what I really like is making things, whatever they are. I like working with my hands and creating something out of raw materials. It doesn't matter if I'm painting, sewing, cooking, or whatever. Just as long as something is being made. Know what I mean?

Yes Dan,i know exactly what you mean,when i was younger, i made my own bread,ground the flour,made butter,yogurt,canned all our food, sewed clothes for the kids,made all my own curtains,you name it, i probably tried it.ha ha
Now i make Victorian lamp shades, all sewed by hand,beaded fringe or the antique long cotton fringe.
I have a small hosta business,still do a small amount of canning,garden like a crazy lady,and now,help my daughter and her hubby make soap.
I also take classe of what ever interests me.
Oh, and i tried my hand at oil painting,and i was shocked out of my mind, i can do it.ha ha
I tried making a braided rug, the farthest i got was getting all the rags cut and rolled.:0(
Oh, and yes, you can melt down your left over bars of soap, that is not the kind we do though.
If you wanna see some good soap,check out my daughters web site,www.consciousbath.com
is it all right to say this?It is not my business.

Has any one found out who they will be sending to yet?
I am so excited,this is so silly,and so much fun.

I had a recipe for making your own laundry soap around somewhere. It's supposed to save you tons of money. I haven't tried it.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Rainy Saturday here!! Just got home to the dog, who was nice enough to let himself out of the crate and then go to the bathroom on the carpet. At least he is nice enough to go in the same spot all the time. I was nice enough to kick him outside in the rain...we have a love/ hate relationship!! He really is a great dog...except for the bathroom thing!

I have made goat milk soap and lotion. Goat milk has wonderful healing properties!! My MIL had scaly skin that even prescription lotion couldn't help. She tried the Goat Milk Lotion and it cleared right up!!

Anyone watch football??? Penn State is currently losing!!!

I was at the mall today getting ideas for my box, I can't wait to see who it is.

Talk to you tomorrow..HAHA that's in 35 min!!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Good Morning all,

proudgm, I'd love your laundry soap recipe. I have tons of allergies and finding laundry soap that doesn't irritate my skin isn't always easy.

Dan, you the man! My hubby barely knows how to boil water!

Sassy, how nice of you to stop in and say Hello. What is it that your doing for work that keeps you away from us for sooo long???

Tracy, your being such a good girl this month!

Waving a hand at cAROl, annie, karen and everyone else. My mind is not awake yet!

I have a plant swap to attend today and it's pouring buckets :(. It's an hour away and will be raining when I get there too. I so hate driving in the rain!! I would stay home but I potted up so many plants, I have 3 bread crates ready to go and don't want to plant them all where they came from....LOL I'm going to try and butter hubby up good this morning, maybe he"ll drive me!!

Where's Alana???? I hope she's just staying offline due to rain storms. I'm anxious to see who I'll be sending to. I was hoping to know BEFORE I took all these plants to the swap.

I have to go make mac sald for the swap, I'll check in later.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Goodmorning everybody!
Dan, cAROL you guys are making me want to go do some seriuos crafting. I too have a desire to to do all kinds of crafts. My biggest problem is that once I finish a project no matter how simple and beautiful it turns out, I just never do again. I have accomplished some great stuff and have made good money doing it but just can't seem to stay with it.
I've made some gorgeous mosaic, antique lampshades, garden art,beautiful pillows,so on so on.

cAROL can you share some pix of your shades? I'd love to see your work. email me.

Dan I'd love to see quilts that you've made so I can show my dh, he can't boil water either.

Alana, I still would like the instructions on the mirrors
Please, if you get some time one day :o)

Becky I would love the receipe for soap. hehe (what do I think this is is a craft store?) LOL

To the rest of you, happy Sunday Hugs,
Carmen


 o
RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

cAROL, I would love to see a picture of your shades too.

Becky, Could I get that laundry soap recipe too? I know if you add some borax to your regular laundry detergent it is suppose to help brighten your clothes.

Dan, You sound pretty handy to have around.

I can't wait to see who I will be sending to.

Denise


 o
RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I've added borax to the laundry for a long time now and haven't noticed too much of a difference except that it does help with deodorizing. I recently started using baking soda instead and it definitely helps with brightening the whites. We can't use bleach because of the well water, it yellows the whites pretty quickly.

I recently bought a big batch of goats milk bar soap from a lady I met. She made them special with no fragrance since I'm allergic. I plan on packing one of them in with my box since they are great for sensitive skin and work great in getting the dirt out after digging in the garden. :O)

Lisa, have fun at your swap today, careful in the rain. P.S. Aren't I always good?

Happy Sunday!
Tracy

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Good morning to all you ghouls,
What,still no news?
I hope all is well with Allena,I'm starting to worry a little.
I can't wait to see who i will be sending to.

Hey, i make my own laundry soap as well,I LOVE IT!,good stuff to clean with,and ever so good for the earth,no bad chemicals going down the drain.I have a front loader,and it is safe to use on these also.
The only draw back, can be, if you like to see lots of suds, you won't!But it cleans really well.We make ours all Organic.
They make Goats Milk soap as well.(my kids)Brenda makes a wonderful bar for sensitive skin.And a kitchen bar,that will take the fish,and onion smell off your hands when you are cooking,made with Anise,yummy!There are so many healing properties in organic soap,they just finished making an Antibacterial soap, that smells like cinn.

Lisa, is it going to rain all day?Don't it just drive you crazy when your plans can be ruined,but eh, you are all gardeners,what's a little rain,will there at least be a tent set up ?I hope so,it sounds like fun, i have read about other swaps like this one,good luck,let us know what you get in trade.

I had a sample copy of all the shades i have made,i will see if i can take a picture of the copy and post it,i always have trouble posting.gurrrrrrrrrrr

Becky, I also.would love to have your laundry soap,recipe,to see if we make the same one,:0)Don't you just love it.And it is soooooooooooooo cheap.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Craftypeople here. I have tried several different craft activities throughout the years. My last one was knitting scarves. My daughter in law showed me how to do it and lent me her needles. I really liked the yarn color but I apparently picked up a stitch each time and the end of the scarf was wider than the beginning. I quietly handed the needles and all the yarn back to DIL. No thanks. I tend to start projects and never finish them such as the cross stitch receiving blanket I started when I was pregnant with my first child, 27 years ago. I can't even finish it for a grandchild as the pattern has faded away. I will stick to my jewelry making. It is fast and fun.

I went to a plant swap yesterday which happened to be 10 minutes from where my son and dil live so the two of us attended. It was raining most of the time so damp, wet, and muddy but fun. My dil is just starting to get into gardening. We had such a good time and good food since in was a potluck. I really brought home the loot too. Afterwards, she had me help her plant about 125 bulbs around her gardens plus the plants we picked up for her at the swap. It was raining on and off. I can't imagine what her neighbors thought about two women out there in rain ponchos gardening in the pouring rain. It was alot of fun. We went shopping afterwards. I stayed to visit overnight and just got home about an hour ago. I have to take a nap and then go out and plant my new treasures. I even picked up three huge clumps of pampass grass which I have been resisting spending the money on. They are having another swap in May. Members told me as many as 100 were there this year and almost 4000 plants.

When we moved out here to the country, we noticed our towels had a slightly musty smell and someone suggested using borax. Although it doesn't whiten, it does get rid of the odor. We use our pond as our water source. The water is cleaned up through a system we installed and it is check regularly. I love the water. Totally tasteless unlike the city water we use to experience. I couldn't drink that stuff and we had to buy bottled water. When we would run a tub of water, it smelled like rec center pool area. I could smell the clourine in the water. Nasty.

Carol, I had a friend who at the age of 50, decided to try her hand at drawing using oil pastels. I have one her framed pieces. A coneflower with a butterfly resting on it. She does amazing work. I imagine many of us have inner creativity we do not know about.

Hope everyone had a good weekend and I sure hope all is ok with Alana. It is weird we haven't heard from her.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I'm home from harvesting at the farm, and thought I'd take a break before doing my canning. I can't believe what I was sent home with! I brought home cabbages, onions, tomatoes, corn (cooked and frozen already!), about 5 pounds of dry beans (we're gonna have beans and cornbread at work on Tuesday!), hollyhock seeds (a paper grocery bag full), and we snacked on roasted pumpkin seeds while I was there. What a great Sunday morning!
And now, I get to go can sauce from all those tomatoes. Nothing better than homemade tomato sauce, is there? I'm going to use garlic from my yard, and try my hand at making different recipes so it doesn't all taste the same all winter long.
I love this time of year!

p.s. Has anyone heard from Alana?

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I love the picture in my mind of you two out there in the rain,planting,ha ha.True gardeners,and what a fun memory to have made.

Hey,Dan, maybe you can whip up some salsa,yummy.
I love this time of year also, we live in the woods,and when the trees start to drop their leaves, every thing looks so different,the way the light moves through the house,Ahhhhhhhhh,man,I love it.

I need help you guys,

How do i upload picturs to photobucket?

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

cAROL, the plant swap in May will have all those 1000's of plants. The one Iwent to was attended by about 20 people. It was under a shelter at a park and they had set up tables for shade, sun, house, etc. When we arrived, I then placed my plants on the designated table. After we all ate, we then proceeded to choose plants. First round, we all chose 1, second round 1 again, third 2, and then 4th, 4 and there may have been a 5th for 5, at that time, I was still on 4. LOL After that though, it was pick out of what was left.

Dan, what a great lot of vegies. I so want to get a plot of our land amended so I can grow great stuff in huge quantities. I love making salsa but my tomatoes will just not grow. I tried pots this year but not much yield.

I have to go put my plants in the ground. I ended up way too tired so took a good long nap. Just not sleeping well at night these days. Today it hit me.

Have fun with your goodies Dan.

AAAALLLLLAAAANNNNNAAAAAA, where are you!!!!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Ok, guys and gals. Here is the homemade laundry detergent recipe. I have not tried this yet and the lady I got it from said she adds extra borax and washing soda. She lives about 20 minutes from here and says she uses extra because the water around here is so crappy. And she's not kidding. I get water from a car wash (has a water dispenser) because I can't stand our well water. It's pretty sad when city water is an improvement over well water.

Tracy, I've never heard of bleach turning your whites yellow with well water. I always thought mine turned yellow because of all the iron in our water. My mom had the best well water ever and her whites were always white.

I'm starting to get worried about Alana too. I hope she has just been too busy to get online and nothing has happened.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

cAROL, you did those? They are beautiful!

I am so sorry that I have had interruptions this time around. I hope the rest of the swap will be less eventful. Swapus interruptus is very frustrating-I have enough trouble keeping up when everything is going smoothly.

I have emailed everyone, (yes, even the two whose names I left off the list.) Please let me know if I have made any mistakes. I did not use GW mail, so if you don't see anything from me, check your spam folder. Let me know if anyone does not receive their identity.
Remember, you should not reveal who you are sending to-let them be surprised when they receive your box.
To recap, you need to send three different kinds of bulbs to be buried alive, or three other zone appropriate plants to your receiver along with a Halloween Trick or a Halloween Treat.
You need to mail early to make sure your receiver has their box in plenty of time for Halloween. Post your Delivery Confirmation number here and come back to the thread to let us know when/what you receive.

I will be posting a game on Tuesday for another trick, or treat.

As for today, it's been a good day. 22 pints of spahetti sauce. 3 different recipes. 2 "helpful" cats. and 1 roommate who knew when it was time to stay out of the kitchen. lol! I'm tired, but man it feels great to know I've got it done! next weekend I'm canning salsa out of the rest of the tomatoes in the yard.

It has been sooo windy here. It is only 48 degrees. brrrr.. I never got to deadheading my Agastache, and I'm sure the wind has blown seed over my entire flower bed. I had so many seedlings this past spring, that I swore I would get those deadheaded this year. I'll be dreading next springs Agastache crop!

cAROL, I love your shades, too. Very pretty!

Dan, wow!, that is a lot of Spaghetti sauce! I also did spaghetti sauce this year(2 recipes), and chili sauce and salsa. No stewed tomatoes this year, and I know I'm going to miss that. We have all of our potatoes & onions dug. All that is left is the carrots and dh's beets.

Tracy,
I am so glad your new pet made it to your home safely. I have the PO pick up my packages when I am at home but I had to take that one in. The Postal clerk asked me what the air holes were for. You should have seen her face when I told her it was a spider for a friend. She wanted to know what kind of spider needed such a large box. I was half afraid she would delay and have it inspected, LOL.

I will post the new game tomorrow when I fly home from working.

Have the Vampires taken you all?
Here is a little poem for you, it in not compleat,but still fun.

Walk into my Parlor
"Will you walk into my parlor?"said the spider to the fly
"Tis the perttiest little parlor that you ever did spy".
"The way to my parlor,is up a winding stair",
And I have many curious things to show when you are there".
"Oh no,no!" said the little fly"to ask me is in vain;
For what goes up your stair,can never come down again."....

Green Cats eyes
in the midnight gloom
fly with the witch
on her ragged old broom
over dark hills where
bonfires loom.

Trick or Treat,
smell my feet
give me something good to eat.

Knock knock,any one here?JUMPING UP AND DOWN,WAVING MY ARMS

Alana, winter might not be a 4 letter word but SNOW sure is! We have temps in the 50's right now. They dropped so suddenly! Last night was miserable. I didn't want to turn the furnace on but it was needed. I was freezing to death in bed last night and finally bit the bullet and flipped the switch. It is the last harbinger of winter sneaking up on us for me. Makes me want to jump right back in bed and pull the covers up till spring.

Yesterday upon the stair
I saw a man who wasnt there
He wasnt there again today
Oh, how I wish hed go away
When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldnt see him there at all!
Go away, go away, dont you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please dont slam the door
Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasnt there
He wasnt there again today
Oh, how I wish hed go away

cAROL, when I read your last thread and saw that it was 56 where you are, I looked down at the weatherbug and it said 57. But it felt much warmer with sun shining. Tomorrow is suppose to be back to being windy, and Thurs. it looks like rain.

Wanda the witch on her broom
Swept through the town yelling "ZOOM"!
through a perchance of luck
Never hearing the truck
and she zoomed on her broom to her doom.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Carol - your lampshades are beautiful! You must have lots more patience than I do!

Dan - Wow! Canning, cooking, sewing, quilting? My hubby can upholster furniture, and thus use a sewing machine, but no cooking, unless it's using a microwave. I wont even repeat what his thoughts on crafts or quilting are!! Huge round of applause for your parents in raising all their kids to be so talented!

I tried square foot gardening last year and I love it. I went to Lowe's and purchased some 2x8x16 lumber and had hubby make me two raised beds. I mixed my own soil, using Miracle Grow for vegies, peat, compost, composted manure, and pearlite. Then divided the beds up into 12" squares and planted either the seeds or the plants themselves. There is a website ~ I think it is squarefootgardening.com ~ that gives you suggestions on how many of each vegie seed or plant you can put in each square. We had more tomatoes and okra than we have had in the past using different planting methods. I highly recommend it!

Alana, your doggie is so cute! We don't get that white stuff down here very often, but we have had freak ice storms.

Smitties, I have tried all kinds of crafts, too. I finally decided that I would stick to just gardening, scrapbooking, and sewing. I love garden art/junk, so that gives me an outlet to use all the rest of the craft supplies I have on hand. Which is good, considering the mountains of scrapbook paper and fabric I have! LOL!

Tracy, I remember you said you love Folgers's coffee. Me too, at least until last Christmas when my hubby gave me a Cuisinart brew and serve coffee maker that has a coffee grinder. I've been having fun trying out all the whole beans that are out there. Kona coffee from Hawaii is really good. I ordered it online as a treat last year. Now that autumn is here, the Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer is in the stores. Yummy!!

I missed the last contest, so I'm looking forward to the next one!

Time to run two teenagers to bed, so I leave you with this poem I remember from elementary school days:

~ HALLOWEEN ~

By Harry Behn

Tonight is the night
When dead leaves fly
Like witches on switches
Across the sky,
When elf and sprite
Flit through the night
On a moony sheen.

Tonight is the night
When leaves make a sound
Like a gnome in his home
Under the ground,
When spooks and trolls
Creep out of holes
Mossy and green.

Tonight is the night
When pumpkins stare
Through sheaves and leaves
Everywhere,
When ghouls and ghost
And goblin host
Dance round their queen.
It's Halloween.

Good Morning all,

Dan I am glad you didn't post that last night or I might have had nightmares!!

I love all the Halloween poems. I am going to share them with my girl scout troop next meeting!!

I was cleaning up a few flower beds..and collecting seeds..yesterday. I finally got my rosemary in a pot to bring inside. It is a pretty big plant so I asked my husband to carry it inside for me. He gave me the funniest look. He said you want me to do what?!?! I calmly asked him again to carry in the plant and he continued to look at me like I was crazy...I guess he just doesn't get it!!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I thought that I might put ornaments on it at Christmas. I love Rosemary. I bought the plant on a whim this summer because I read that it would keep the cats away from your flower bed...HAHAHAHA. The cats did their business right next to it. I had no idea how good it smells (the rosemary) or how great it tastes (once again the rosemary)on potatoes. I have never wintered anything over either. I have a begonia that I am going to bring in also. Between bringing in plants and winter sowing I am going to be learning a lot this winter!!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Heidi, that rosemary looks delicious. I love rosemary. I know what you mean about the crazy look. I get those looks whenever I request help outside. Hehe. But he rarely says no. I have brought in about 20 plants so far and still have several brugs to bring in yet. Which will require his assistance.

After bringing in my plants I was unpleasantly surprised by a hugh wolf spider. EEE..YUCK!! Those things give me the creeps.

He was quickly removed from the house by my husband. Thank God he doesn't mind collecting them and putting them outside. This happens every fall.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Ghould Morning everyone! Sorry I haven't posted the Giant Spider yet. I will do that today when I get back this afternoon! Promise! :O) We finally were getting around to some of the winter prep for the house yesterday. We hung a new door to the kitchen. The old door was very drafty and not very energy efficient. Now I don't have a terrible draft wafting over my feet when I walk past! Yippee!

Dan, I popped in here for a minute last night and loved your poem of the man who wasn't there! I read it to my son who is studying poems in English and he was delighted with it. He wants to bring it in and recite it for his class! It was the hit of the household last night!

OH! cAROL! You had me laughing out loud when I read your list of characters for Alana's game last nigh! OHMY Goodness! Hubby though I had lost my mind with all the laughter that was pouring out of me. :O)

Alana! Awesome game last night! I wouldn't have gotten half of those, I close my eyes and change channels quickly for the scary parts of movies. I am a big CHICKEN and hate horror flicks! (shudder!)

Heidi, Yep, folgers is the favorite around here these days. It used to be Maxwell House until it started tasting acidy to me. I have a small coffee grinder here that I use when I have a special brew fix. One of my favorites is a blend of pumpkin spice from the Coffee Beenery that used to be downtown. Oooooh it smells so good when it's brewing! The Cuisinart is such a nice machine! I had to choose between that and the de Longhi that I ended up getting. I was afraid of our hard well water being too rough on the cuisinart so went with this model instead. It has a slow brew feature that is great with specialty coffees. Yummo!

Gotta go! Little girl needs to be scrubbed before school in a little while. I'll chat with all of you when I get back.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I wish I could take credit for that poem, it's one of my favorites. It's written by William Hughes Mearns. Here's what wikipedia has to say about it...

Mearns is credited with the relatively well-known rhyme, composed in 1899 as a song for a play he had written, called The Psyco-ed. The play was performed in 1910 and the poem was first published as "Antigonish" in 1922. The poem also appears in the movie Identity starring John Cusack and Ray Liotta.

Yesterday upon the stair
I saw a man who wasnt there
He wasnt there again today
Oh, how I wish hed go away
When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldnt see him there at all!
Go away, go away, dont you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please dont slam the door
Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasnt there
He wasnt there again today
Oh, how I wish hed go away
"Antigonish" (1899)

It's kind of creepy and cool at the same time, don't you think?

Heidi, the next time you bake chicken, rub some of that rosemary on it and leave a sprig on top while baking. That'll change some tunes around your house. My roommate cooks chicken like that, and there are never any leftovers when he does. Lol, even my two cats like it!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Whew! Oh the joy of high humidity and overcast skies. :) Finally came inside for something to drink after pulling weeds that have sprung up all over the yard from the recent rains. I can't believe how natural rainfall has caused all of my plants to more than double in growth! I have a gazillion four o'clocks, so if anyone wants some seeds, I have plenty!! Also found lots of chili piquins that were planted about the yard, courtesy of either the birds or the squirrels. Need any of those seeds, let me know!!

Tracy, I *love* pumpkin spice flavored coffee! I received several Starbucks cards last Christmas and I treated my self several times until they stopped carrying it. I love cinnamon, too, so I was glad to find cinnamon flavored creamer - Caribbean cinnamon cream, at the stores last week.

For those of you bringing in plants now (I don't have to do this until sometime in late Nov. or early Dec.), where are you putting them? We have at least three or four months of "it looks like a jungle in here!" due to someone that has too many plants to bring in .....wonder who that is.... :)
Last year I fashioned several makeshift areas where I could just cover them up and leave them outside. Still had some inside, but just not as many. They predict we will have a colder, wetter winter down here, so I need to get started on something soon.

Cooled off and rehydrated and ready to head back outside to plant the mums, asters, bluebonnets and flowering kale I bought at the nursery. First I have to stop and clean up the mud tracked in by one of the dogs. We have one dog that hates to get her paws dirty and one that doesn't care how dirty her paws get. I'll check back in later to see if another game has been posted.

The Haunted House

There's a house upon the hilltop
We will not go inside,
For that is where the witches live,
Where ghosts and goblins hide.
Tonight they have their party,
All the lights are burning bright,
But oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.
The demons there are whirling
And the spirits swirl about.
They sing their songs to Halloween.
"Come join the fun," they shout.
But we do not want to go there,
So we run with all our might
And oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

Kathy I am glad you got a drink...I hate humidity! My weather is cool enough for a jacket, but if I am working I get hot!! What are chili piquins?? Gonna have to google that one. I am setting my plants around the house in just about every room!! I am quickly running out of room, and I hope that everything is going to get enough light. Also my little guy loves to dig. He came running into the kitchen the other day with brown all over the face...looked like chocolate. Nope it was dirt from my Wandering Jew. That poor, poor plant. Still hasn't recovered!!

I love pumpkin spice and cinnamon. I am actually into iced coffee, but in the winter it has to be hot!!

Dan I will try the rosemary and chicken.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

LOL! Love those jokes!

Heidi, hope you googled chili piquin. You'll find that it is a small pea sized !!HOT!! pepper. They are red when they are ripe, green when they aren't ripe. They are supposed to be 6-7 times hotter than jalapenos, and I believe it. You have to wear gloves to pick them, because the acid or what ever it is, gets into your skin and if you rub your eyes, or even lick that yummy bbq sauce off your fingers hours later, oh man does it hurt!!

When I was a little kid - maybe 5 years old or so, one of the neighbor boys told me that the chili pequin plant growing in my mom's garden was......get this..... An M&M PLANT!! He told me those were red and green M&M's and to pick a bunch of them and eat them. Well, that's what I did and I'll never forget it! My mouth hurt so bad and at the time, no one knew to drink milk to "put out the fire", so my mom kept giving me water and I kept screaming. Needless to say, neighbor kid got a sound thrashing by his mom. That's the only funny thing about it!

Lots of people use them for salsa and chili dishes. I used to pick them for a couple of guys at work who just loved them. Even dug up the plant for one of the guys when I moved from my old house. They are all over the yard and I honestly don't think you can kill them, unless it is by overwatering.

~Kathy

RE: UPDATE: update petal pushers halloween 'buried alive' #2

I googled them...They are so cute. Its hard to believe that they would be so hot. I would love to grow them, but my 3 year old eats everything. Funny story...This summer he kept eating our green grapes. He even convinced my in-laws to try some (they quickly spit them out)!! I kept telling him the grapes have to be purple. Well when the grapes finally turned purple he said they were yuck and wouldn't touch a single one...go figure.

I hope I am not repeating any of these...

What do you get when you cross a vampire and a snowman?
Frostbite...

Do zombies eat popcorn with their fingers?
No, they eat the fingers separately...

What would a monster's psychiatrist be called?
Shrinkenstein...

Off to music class with the kids. I will check in later tonight!!

HDIPERNA!!!!!!!!!!!,You are the naughty one!!!!!

A couple are invited to a Halloween party,she comes down with a headache,tells her hubby to go to the party any way,she is going to take some aspirin and go to bed.
He says,"You know i never have any fun with out you"but she insists he go, so he grabs his costume,and out the door he goes.
After sleeping a few hours, she awakens,and is feeling pretty good,being that it is still early,she decides to go to the party,and surprise her hubby,as he does not know what her costume is,she decides to tease him a little.
She gets to the party,and low and behold, there he is on the dance floor,having a grand old time,even steeling a kiss now and then from a cutie.
She Saunders onto the dance floor,and he spots her right away,as she is a beauty.
They dance,and he holds her a little to tight,but,hey,it is her husband,so she lets him, he kisses her on the neck,and she allows that also,pretty soon, he whispers a little proposal into her ear,she agrees,and off they go to the parking lot.
Just before midnight,and the unveiling of masks,she slipped away,and goes back home,puts her costume away,and is sitting up in bed reading when he comes in the door.
She says"Honey,did you have a good time at the party?"
He says,"Na, you know i never have a good time with out you,"she asks,"Well, did you dance much"?(wondering what in the world he is going to say now)
He replies"I'll tell you honey"I never even danced one dance,not one",
"When I got there,I met Bill ,Pete,and a few of the other guys,so we went into the den,and played poker all evening,but the guy i loaned my costume to,he sure had a good time all night.............bata boom!

Any one ever go seed swiping??? I stopped at my local park to see what was growing. I got lots of mystery seeds!!! More for the experiment of collecting viable seeds, then growing specific seeds. My brother (age 7)was with and kept asking me are we allowed to be doing this??? I ignored his question and asked if he found any more of those brown, round seeds ;oP

I hate that some of you are feeling crudy,Oh the winter.

I'm waiting and lurking to see if my ghoulish monster will say somthing about itself that would help me fill it's box.
But as fate would have noone is saying a whole lot.

I'm having a sicko weekend, I was driving home about 7:30 yesterday and just as I came around this huge lake I fell asleep at the wheel and and crashed into someones huge brick mail box and trashed their yard aaaand trashed out my beautiful van which I always try to park blocks away from everybody so I don't get any dings. WeLLLL I trashed the passenger side real good. I was ok but did I feel sick to my stomach. Can you imagine falling asleep at wheel in heavy trafic??? I was so lucky that no one got hurt.

I will be sending my box on Monday To my ghoulish secret friend. Look for your box to reach you about Wednesday.

HAHAHA everybody will be checking their mail,including me
LOL

LOts of hugs and smiles
Carmen

Sorry to see some of you are suffering various ailments. So far, so good at my house but it is scary knowing how much crud is going around. I am glad my kids are little anymore.

Carmen, I am so glad you are ok. How frightening was that to wake up to???? Someone was looking out over you.

It is cold, damp, and windy here. Not gardening weather at all. I had hoped to get out to harvest seeds too. Tomorrow is supposed to be a bit warmer but if this wind doesn't quit, I won't be able to try and get seeds cause they will blow away. Chances are the wind has already thrown some around as it is.

Oh Carmen,That is just terriable news,you were so lucky,you,and no one else got hurt.
And to cuunch up your van,ouch, i feel for you.You must have been very tired,were you close to home?
Glad you were not hurt.

I know what you mean,I had a hard time finding something for my ghoulish monster too,no clues at all.
Are you sending to me,well,are you?teehee
You can bet i will be checking my mail box every day.
Should we have posted a little about our selves do you think?I am new to this, so i hope i filled my box right.
I am so excited!

So sorry every one is not felling well,school and children do = sick,all my grandchildren have had the crud.
Hugs(with a face mask)to all of you.:0)(going in to wash my hands now)

I will be mailing out my box on Monday to my ghoulish friend. I finally got it painted today, and after it dries out I'll be filling it up tomorrow. No wine though. I've been too scared to drive feeling this woozy and sleepy, so I wasn't able to go out and get it. I woke up this afternoon to find both cats under the covers with me. They make great babysitters!
