Friday night haunts

Halloween Hodgepodge

Andy, Dan and I will be checking out haunts again this Friday.  We'll also be dragging Johnny along again if he's not stuck working on Saturday morning. This week we'll be visiting some of the haunts along I-43 including the Sheboygan Jaycees: Dominion of Terror, The House of Bathory, Splatter Haus and Nightmare on Main. Last year was the first year I had been to the Dominion of Terror. They did a great job, especially during the heat we had that first weekend. Splatter Haus also did a great job as always and I can't wait to see what they've...

Changes

Adam's Blog

With October here, the changes have become more noticeable. The leaves turn colors, peoples moods change, the temperature changes, and all the buildings that sit dormant 11 months out of the year begin emitting sounds of horror and thrills as the occupants wake up for another season of scares. This is defineitely a great time of year. Today after work I am going to harvest gourds and pumpkins, that have been changing since spring when they were planted.  It's always fun to see what the garden is hiding amongst all the leaves and vines. There are always a few surprises...

Appleton trick-or-treating hours extended

Halloween Hodgepodge

Kevin Hash is an inspiring young lad at 13 years of age. He went before the Appleton common council and requested that trick-or-treat be held until 8pm instead of the original 7pm  to accommodate changes in family lifestyles and daylight savings time. I hope more communities take this into account as well and extend their trick-or-treat times until 8pm when holding Halloween on a weekday.  Most households now have both parents working and by the time they get home, feed the kids, get their costumes/make-up on, trick-or-treat is almost over. Let kids have this opportunity to be kids, get dressed...
