I have an elderly, chair-bound friend who loves sweets, and her doctor says, whatever she wants, she gets (she was on her death-bed when I met her a decade ago). So I buy stuff I like, my husband likes. We munch on a few, give a lot away, and bring the rest to Pat.

Try this link to the whole page:
About myself

I clicked the About Me link and got a message that Media Player needed an add-on so I allowed it and the player started on it's own but VERY small so I clicked full screen and it worked great.

Is that the Dark Shadows theme I am hearing?

Ditto! I buy a couple bags of candy, those mixed Hershey's candy bars and Almond Joys. And I know I don't get any trick or treaters

As soon as I got the pop up something was trying to add an add-on, I clicked the red X

I didn't get the pop up......Just the page with script where the link should have been.

Sorry it isn't working for some folks. We've sent others to the site and they haven't mentioned an issue.

Dawgluver, we found the plans online as well. There are several plans for different FCGs, but we are limited in the space. I have been thinking about animatronics, particularly a "rising" dragon. Got it pictured in my head with most details, but I need to win lotto first!

No Candy Here!

No, I don't decorate my apartment for Halloween.

I put up a "No Candy Here" sign so the trick or treaters won't knock on my door.

Last year we ran out of candy so I started giving out mini packages of microwave popcorn. The kids loved it, they were going up and down the street telling the other kids. Some came back and asked if we had anymore. Even the parents seemed pleased.
