Happy Halloween!

In honor of the harvest and the spookiest season of the year, as this cycle winds down to its close, what better icon than the pumpkin to commemorate this day?

This year we didn't get around to carving the pumpkins, but we still like to have them around gracing the steps ... and as you can see, the morning glories are still hanging in there at this late date. I took a few other ambient light shots along with this, but most of them didn't turn out ... I should have known better and used the flash!

In any case, however you celebrate the big spook day, I hope it's an enjoyable one for you! We usually just take it easy (now that the annual haunted open house and big trick or treat night are past) and watch a favorite scary movie, and I think this year's choice will most likely be Robert Aldrich's classic Bette Davis -- Joan Crawford guignol fest Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? the special edition (2 discs!) which I just received the other day. It's one of my favorite guilty pleasures and if you've never had the experience of watching Davis and Crawford tear each other to shreds, you should definitely treat yourself this Halloween. (Or any time you're in the mood for some grand guignol high octane theatrics!) It's a shocker you won't soon forget, during which you will find yourself chuckling at inappropriate times ... only one of the charms of this fine example of black comedic camp cinema.

Now that's a great idea (no carving required) and it looks really pretty!

I haven't seen that movie in years, although I remember it being great.

Have fun tonight!

As I said to Mrs. Fetched this morning: "Hey, nice pumpkins."

Have a fun Hallowe'en!

Just questioning if eBay permits you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on the web? Do you know if there are any restrictions depending on what country you're in?

My parents have just referred to as me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to a concert as they wont be able to make it because of another family event.

Besides asking close friends etc, i thought ebay would be a fantastic location to market them.

But whats ebay's policy on selling tickets? Ive heard alot about it for the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is within this coming month

Thanks in advance for the advice.
