Our standard dinner on Halloween was squirrel stew.  Mama had to make us sit down and eat because we were so excited. We kids couldn't sit still for a second but Mama made it exciting by cracking open squirrel heads with her teeth.   She would cook the squirrel in the pressure cooker, pull out the heads and keep them on the side for the show at dinner.  Of course, all of us would go "ewwwwwwwwwwwww Mama Stop that !"    She would cackle like a witch and pull out another one.   Her Pièce de résistance  was sucking out the brains.  And you wonder why I'm so crazy... smile

Halloween Potions and Recipes

1/2 cup white glue
6 Tbsp. water
food coloring
1-4 tsp. Borax
1-4 Tbsp. water
Mix the glue, 6 tablespoons water and food coloring until it is dissolved. In a separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon borax into 1 tablespoon water. Add to the glue solution. You will get a very thick clump of slime when the two mix. Pull the clump of slime out of the glue mixture and put it in a separate bowl. Mix another batch of the borax solution and add to the remaining glue mixture. Repeat until all the glue mixture is used (about 3-4 times). With clean hands, knead the slime to mix. This will take about 10 minutes and is not very difficult as the slime easily separates between your fingers. If a looser, more slimy texture is desired, knead in a bit more water. The more water you add, the slimier it gets. The slime does not leave a residue and does not get stuck on anything. Store in an airtight container. This can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.


Face Paint
1 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. cold cream
food coloring
Mix all ingredients together in an old muffin pan and you are ready to paint. Repeat for each color.

What is Terms of Service (TOS)

The Terms of Service is set of rules an individual or organization must abide by in order to use a service. A Terms of Service agreement is legally binding (except in cases where the individual is below a certain age and does not have parental consent or the terms of service violates local, state, or federal laws) and generally covers various aspects of the user’s interaction with the service, such as how the user’s data will be used, how the user can use the service (e.g. you can send personal email but you can’t send commercial email), and so on.

Terms of Service agreements are widely criticized as being arcane and difficult to read; so much so that it is rare for end users to actually read them and to instead blindly accept the terms.

How to Clean Stuff

When you are done with your pumpkin, give it to wildlife.   Take it to your zoo or leave it in your back yard.

Coffee filters .... Who knew! And you can buy 1,000 at the Dollar Tree for almost nothing even the large ones.
1.  Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave. Coffee filters make excellent covers.
2.  Clean windows, mirrors, and chrome... Coffee filters are lint-free so they'll leave windows sparkling.
3.  Protect China by separating your good dishes with a coffee filter between each dish.
4.  Filter broken cork from wine. If you break the cork when opening a wine bottle, filter the wine through a coffee filter.
5.  Protect a cast-iron skillet. Place a coffee filter in the skillet to absorb moisture and prevent rust.
6.  Apply shoe polish. Ball up a lint-free coffee filter.
7.  Recycle frying oil. After frying, strain oil through a sieve lined with a coffee filter.
8.  Weigh chopped foods. Place chopped ingredients in a coffee filter on a kitchen scale.
9.  Hold tacos. Coffee filters make convenient wrappers for messy foods.
10. Stop the soil from leaking out of a plant pot. Line a plant pot with a coffee filter to prevent the soil from going through the drainage holes.
11. Prevent a Popsicle from dripping. Poke one or two holes as needed in a coffee filter.
12. Do you think we used expensive strips to wax eyebrows? Use strips of coffee filters..
13. Put a few in a plate and put your fried bacon, French fries, chicken fingers, etc on them. It soaks out all the grease.
14. Keep in the bathroom. They make great "razor nick fixers."
15. As a sewing backing. Use a filter as an easy-to-tear backing for embroidering or appliqueing soft fabrics.

16. Put baking soda into a coffee filter and insert into shoes or a closet to absorb or prevent odors.
17. Use them to strain soup stock and to tie fresh herbs in to put in soups and stews.
18. Use a coffee filter to prevent spilling when you add fluids to your car.
19. Use them as a spoon rest while cooking and clean up small counter spills.
20. Can use to hold dry ingredients when baking or when cutting a piece of fruit or veggies.. Saves on having extra bowls to wash.
21. Use them to wrap Christmas ornaments for storage.
22. Use them to remove fingernail polish when out of cotton balls.
23. Use them to sprout seeds.. Simply dampen the coffee filter, place seeds inside, fold it and place it into a plastic baggie until they sprout.
24. Use coffee filters as blotting paper for pressed flowers. Place the flowers between two coffee filters and put the coffee filters in phone book..
25. Use as a disposable "snack bowl" for popcorn, chips, etc.

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12
