TAKING STOCK AT 11:41 PM

It’s been a pretty good day,

Even had time to play…

Halloween

Wasn’t too mean,

My relief is on his way!

Fall Fest — Miranda Speaks Style

Every year my aunt and uncle put on a Fall Fest party for the family. It is definitely something I look forward to every year. I love getting to carve pumpkins, eat some good food, spend time with family, and of course, pick out my favorite fall outfit. Today I have on some high-waisted black jeans, a […]

Kato Truss Bridge — N-Scale and other interest

My friend Eric asked me to custom weather his single track, black Kato bridge, for his basement layout. I looked for prototypes that were different from what you might expect. I found an image of the 6th street bridge with some minor repairs on the old joints. I liked the look and expanded it across […]

My Halloween Costume — Joey Rambles

Happy Halloween, everyone! So while we’re stacking up the candy corn and grabbing our Blair Witch DVDs (we’re gonna pretend the second one never happened okay), a few of us (okay, most of us) have been looking forward to the best part of Halloween – the costumes! I didn’t quite get to go all out […]

HALLOWEEN HAIKU

It’s never too late:

Halloween celebrating…

It’s family fun.

–J.E.C.

Before midnight comes

And it’s All Saints Holy Day

Let’s kneel down and pray!

–J.E.C.

Vandelism squashed

Families took back the night

The nineteen fifties!

–J.E.C.

Little ghosts need rest

Tomorrow’s another day

Put costumes away!

–J.E.C.

Imagination

Haiku inspired by the mind

Covered with…a mask

–J.E.C.

Gone all the candy,

Sugar high kids just can’t sleep…

Warm milk and stories!

–J.E.C.

Adults a grand time

Pushing the erotic edge

Skimpy means you’re cold!

–Jonathan Caswell

Does God Care If I Vote? — Richard’s Food for Thought

Does God care if I vote? I think it’s a fair question. Is God invested in my participation in the democratic process. I’m not certain. You’d be hard pressed to find an argument for democracy in scripture. Monarchy, empires, and dictatorships are all through the Bible. Nobody gets to vote for anything or anyone. Individual […]

Day 2487, October 31, 2016 – Halloween Cats — Mark Buehl’s Blog

Cats in Hats time. It is Halloween and the kids got to dress up. Kali liked her witches hat, but was disappointed she did not get a magic broom. Newbie liked his pirate hat, but was upset that he could not get the pirate sword. So both kids were less than thrilled to have their pictures […]

Satan, The Imaginary, And Halloween — A Christian Worldview of Fiction

Every year around this time Christians begin a discussion about celebrating Halloween, but perhaps speculative writers, more so. The conversation is justifiable, especially in light of the fact that Halloween has become a highly commercial, and therefore, visible, holiday in the US. As a result, television programs, movies, and certainly commercials have some tie in […]
