Wicked Witch of the West

Here's that picture I mentioned earlier... my memory card reader is back in action after a mysterious "vacation".

Got some cool stuff for Christmas

Of course my memory card reader on my computer decided to take a Christmas vacation, so I can't post any pictures just yet. I got an awesome Wicked Witch of the West painting, the Trick R' Treat book, and another book called "The Haunted House Halloween Handbook" that I had been wanting to check out. I got a lot of other cool non-Halloween stuff too. Hope all of you had a great Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any other Holiday you may have celebrated.

Merry Christmas

For all the people who like to ask if we go "all out" for Christmas too, well, not really. A few lights here and there, Frosty the Snowman, and some Charlie Brown characters are about it. All of you from up north, don't laugh at our "snow"... that's about as much as we get around here.

Merry Christmas from Jonathan, Andi, Joey, and Evan, and also from our two cats and the fish (if you are wondering what that thing is at the Bottom). Hope everyone has a Happy Holiday!

Race Rock Lighthouse

It's funny how you see something one time and can't seem to get it out of your head. I saw this lighthouse on an episode of Ghost Hunters one time and think about it often, I don't know why. I think it would be really cool to go visit this sometime. I guess what strikes me most is that it is just so creepy looking and isolated. I can't really remember what happened on the show or if they even thought it was haunted or not, I just have the image of this thing in my head.

I wonder what it is about lighthouses that make them so haunted?

Funny Halloween Song

I downloaded this song a while back and thought it was kind of funny. Sorry, but this was the best video I could find.

Dead Spider's Web

I know this one has been posted a few times before, but I couldn't resist putting up a little something from I could not believe some of these props the first time I saw them, some truly amazing work. The creator of these works has a really cool Etsy shop as well. I have got to get some of those little bottles she has for sale.

I love the little details like this hair growing out of this wart.

Another addictive website and Etsy Shop for some of your Halloween "needs".

The Moon, Jupiter, and Venus all together

In case you missed it in the sky on December 1st, this is what the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter looked like all together. Pretty cool.

I don't know how often this happens, but I hope to see it again someday.

Black, Orange, and Skulls

Other than Halloween, one of my favorite things to do is play drums. I have a pretty cool looking set now, but I found this one today and thought it would be very cool to own.

As an added bonus, it is made by my favorite drum company.

Also: Step outside tonight and take a look at the Moon, Venus and Jupiter. You can't miss them (unless it's cloudy where you live).
