Bootastic and Frightfullicious

Well, another Halloween has come and gone in Maryland. This one was abit different for me but somewhat familiar. Halloween 2004 was my first and I'm thinking I came home late from the office. It was rather entertaining to see the costumes on the subway. Last year, it was great to have Kim and Georgia up here...although we had yet to move into our new townhouse. This year, K & G are in Mississippi this week.

It was a bit too much to cough up three plane tickets at once and I can't go anywhere during sweeps periods - which November is a big one. So, I help out at the church's Fall Festival. A great turn out and the kids had a lot of fun! I found an orange long-sleeve shirt and considered myself "An Uncarved Pumpkin." I know, lame. Didn't have anything in the closet to have fun with...and zero time and money to put together anything else. Oh, well. The remainder of the night was spent recouping from the long day and posting a few Halloween pics from around the DC area submitted by viewers.

Fall leaves here are amazing. Vivid colors...yellows and reds are in abundance and quite spectacular. However, I may need to miff the homeowner's association by setting by front lawn a blaze...quite a few need to be raked. LOL

Ahhhh, I miss the days of working on the "Unexplained" series. This time three years ago and for three years before that I would be needing a coma having worked on the half-hour special for hours on end with help from others.

It's amazing how time has flown and it's already November! I'm planning on a visit to Mississippi in December.

More to come...

I Can Honestly Say Jon Is My Best Friend

At the beginning of this year, these were Kate Gosselin's words in an interview with Today's Christian Woman : "I can honestly say Jon is my best friend." Kate also says, "When the babies were born, I was well aware that our marriage could crumble. It was close to doing so at times. But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier. "But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options. Sure, Jon and I take our stress out on each other, and no, that's not always good or healthy. But we work hard as a team every day."

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?

This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post? This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.

Palin Keeps 'em Guessin'

People lash out at things that they don't understand and at things that scare them. It's rather clear that liberals don't understand and therefore are scared of Sarah Palin. Since she came out of the proverbial woodwork of Alaska and onto the national scene of a Presidential campaign, the media has lashed out at her like hungry wolves waiting for any chance to pounce. Remember her wardrobe, for example? The media highlighted the Republican National Committee’s purchase of $150,000 in clothes for Palin, even though the dresses would be donated to charities. The story was page-one for The New York Times. Yet, Barack Obama’s trips to Hawaii on a chartered Boeing 757 cost $800,000 and received appreciative "nods" from the media. Then Presidential Candidate Obama used a Boeing 757 for two trips to Hawaii over the summer for a vacation and to visit his failing grandmother. Palin being a modest person without a wardrobe to withstand 24/7 campaigning had clothes gi
