All Hallows’ Eve

Happy Halloween everyone.

Yep it’s time for all the children to dress up in their costumes and go trick or treating. Well wearing costumes isn’t only for the children, adults to it as well.

One thing I’m amazed at, is that the amount of kids that come to my house for trick and treating seems to get fewer and fewer every year.

When I was a child, back in the mid to late ’90s it seemed like the whole block would be filled with children going trick or treating. Also nearly every house was giving out candy, or popcorn, or pennies. (Yes there were houses back when I was a child that gave out popcorn an pennies) Now a days it seems like very few kids go out and even fewer houses give something out.

I remember this one time back when I was in High School, I’m not exactly sure if it was my Junior or Senior year or if it was a year after I graduated,  anyway that year we were only able to buy one bag of candy before Halloween. My grandmother and sister had to run up to CVS to buy some more candy an by the time they got back we had nearly ran out of candy.

Last year we ended up with nearly all the candy leftover.

I’m only mentioned this since last Friday on The Rachael Ray Show, Rachael Ray had actor Tom Selleck on and both had said that on Halloween that nobody had ever gone to their houses.

So at the time I was thinking ‘well we haven’t been getting may trick or treaters for the past few year’ and then thought about making a blog post about it.

Well I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween. Don’t let the goblins, ghouls, an witches get ya. Ha Ha Ha Ha HA Haaaaaaaaaaaa.


Just Rambling….. or maybe not.

I think this will just be a rambling post, since I don’t really know what to talk about.

There is one question I’ve have on my mind, that I’ve been meaning to ask but have always decided not to because I don’t really want to talk about the Presidential Elections. Though I think I’m just going to do it now since it’s almost time for the elections.

Is anyone else tired of hearing about the Race for President?

I know I am.

I really wish they were over.

I am really tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Neither one is perfect and neither one in my opinion is worthy, at this point, of being President of the United States. I’m sorry if that upsets any of their supporters but that how I feel.

Really that could be said to be the truth. I mean in a perfect world all the scandals they have had would have derailed their campaigns.

I mean how could anybody have a private server that could have been hacked by anybody, and deleted thousands of emails an expect anybody to vote for you as President.

If the FBI investigation had finished during the primaries an the FBI director cam out and called Clinton a lair, I’d bet anyone that Bernie Sanders would have been the Democratic Candidate.

I mean how could a President of the United States believe that someone who could have possibly put classified information at risk on a private server, is the right person to be President?

Now I’m not saying Trump is the right person either. Though maybe he’s what the country needs right now. I mean we had a President who apologized to nearly everyone and also seemed to try and appease everyone. A hint from history, appeasement doesn’t not work. Not to mention he made us seem weak in cases by saying one thing and not following through with it. (Or has everyone forgotten the whole line in the sand). Maybe the country needs a person who will follow through with what they say and show that the United States won’t back down.

Now conspiracy theorists out there may believe that means the Elections are rigged. An they have the right to think that under the First Amendment.  Now I’m not a big believer in conspiracy theory’s, though I will admit that there are times when I think that maybe things are rigged.

I mean how could an Attorney General whose department is investigating someone for a crime not know that the one thing you should be seen doing is talking to the husband of that person. (I mean isn’t that like the first thing you do when you know someone that is being investigated?)

I’ll give both the AG and Bill Clinton the benefit of the doubt that it was an accident that they met that day. Even if it was an accident one of them should have known they shouldn’t have been near each other an one should have changed their plans.

I know that’s what I would have done if I had been in either one of their shoes.

I mean meeting an then one of them changing their plans sounds a lot better then they met and neither changed their plans, or at least to me it does.

Look at that I started this off as just a rambling piece and then got into talking about the elections.

Anyway like I said I’m just tired of hearing about the elections.

Oh also, I’m getting tired about hearing everyone, including the President, talking about how a persons vote is wasted if they don’t vote for Clinton or Trump.

I mean talk about trying to influence an election, or to take away a persons right to choose by basically telling them who to vote for, Anyway that’s a matter for another day.
