Fond Memories of Halloween


  • Waiting till sunset to trick-or-treat, then racing home afterwards to dump out the trick-or-treat bags and plastic jack-o-lanterns to separate the chocolate candy from the other, less desirable, Halloween candy.

  • Bobbing for apples, fishing for prizes in the fishing booth, and to enjoying a favorite Halloween candy recipe, the red candy coated Halloween candy apples at the Halloween Carnival.

  • Browsing the Halloween aisle to see the variety of special Halloween candy bags created for the season and oohing and aahing at the wide variety of Halloween candy created especially for this time of year.

    Each year as Halloween looms near, thoughts of first costumes and bobbing for apples turn up unbidden by those people who reflect upon the past.

  • Memories of earlier Halloween events are often triggered by the images people see as they walk through stores that are attempting to sell Halloween treats and candy or while they drive through neighborhoods decorated with lots of ugly witches, wide-eyed pumpkins, and flying bats. 



  • Halloween memories, treats and fun! What a special time of year for young and old alike. A person is never too old for Halloween candy!

    Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

    Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task.

    The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

    Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

    At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

    When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
