    Just give em a multivitamin tab & tell them it's "ecstasy". The parents will be reluctant to bring the little darlings round in successive years...!

    Pressure washer and tasers ha ha sounds like you live on my estate.

    I think for me the concept of Halloween is awful. I never allowed my girls to go 'begging' for sweets and money. I'm not too keen on my granddaughter going but she's not my child, I dont make the rules for her. I found my eldest had been trick or treating one year and had got herself a pile of money. I made her give it to a homeless fella selling the Big Issue here in the UK. Not sure she learnt a lesson but it stopped her spending loads of money on rubbish

    What does pumpkin taste like? I would buy them for the girls but wouldnt know what to do with whatever came out of it. I wasnt too keen on the smell. Was just curious as to what it tasted like

    Apparently is pretty bland, only reason I ever buy pumpkin is to put it on my head. For this, they are truly magnificent.

    I bought some small packages of cheese and breadsticks because I knew I would eat the candy right now. We have a new fence with locking gate and no one bothered us at all. I am donating the cheese and breadsticks to the local food pantry because we tried them and do not like them.

    I would you know. I love cheese too and thought we could use the small packages when we were out for snacks for mom. It says cheddar on the label but it is not, it's a goopy orange sweet mess of a salty sauce and dry tasteless sticks of cracker.
