More than Just Halloween

October 31st that is.

For most of us the best thing about October 31st is Halloween of course but the day is also significant to other events too for instance:

475 Romulus Augustus is proclaimed Western Roman Emperor
1517 Martin Luther posts his 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg.
1864 Nevada becomes the 36th State
1940 The United Kingdom prevents a German invasion in the Battle of Britain during WWII.
1941 Drilling is completed on Mount Rushmore after 14 years in the works.
1959 Lee Harvey Oswald attempts to renounce his American citizenship at the U.S. embassy in Moscow
1961 Josef Stalin's body is removed from Lenin's tomb in the Soviet Union.
1984 India Prime Minister Indira Gahndi is assassinated by security guards, setting off a chain of riots that lead to the deaths of nearly 10,000 Sikhs.
2002 Former Enron CFO Andrew Fastow is indicted by federal grand jury on 78 counts, including wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy, related to the collapse of his former company.
2010 For the first time in almost 2 decades the All Together Dead house is not hosting a Halloween get together, there is no yard haunt, and while the family has a brand new house, things just seem too array.....

My new favorite Halloween bite

Thank you to Kevin and Gillian for posting this quick little recipe for my new favorite Halloween Pick Me Up treat for the kiddies... Of all ages of course. When you just couldn't think of anything better than chocolate covered pretzels... WALA.... as suggested I substituted some fall colored M&M's and even broke open a bag of Reese Pieces to top some of them so I had a little assortment of wonder... I cannot however show you an original photo because my family descended upon the tiny treasures of tooth decay like vultures... I was lucky, I got 2 of them.

You can find the RECIPE HERE

At last....

I have finally scored a single box of Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts.. yes just a single box was all I could find at my Target. The spot on the shelf labeled was empty, but I was fortunate to find my box mixed in with the Capri Suns.... lucky for me I was in the market for those too for the 9 year olds lunch... Notice by the photo I didn't wait to get home, I popped a package open on the drive home... YUMMY.

Can't wait until morning to try the warm too.....
