I started this site to give myself an outlet for posts on topics that don't fit the Polipundit format. During the election season, I will continue posting a lot of political stuff here and cross posting some of the stuff I have posted at Polipundit. This post, however is an example of something non-political, but fun, that I would like to share with readers.
Some may have noticed that I added a list of "fun" links in the sidebar. I only have one listed so far, but will add more eventually. The one I have listed, Sleepless Souls, is my cousin Beverly's website which documents the transformation her house undergoes every October. Her home will be featured on a show called "Extreme Halloween" on HGTV on October 24th and 31st. See her site for times. We had planned on driving to Charlotte to watch the filming, but one of the recent hurricanes was scheduled to hit there the exact time we would have been driving, and whether or not the filming would go ahead as scheduled was somewhat in question. Well, at the warnings of family members in the area who reported some pretty strong winds and hard rainstorms leading up to the time we would have been traveling, we cancelled our trip. Of course, my luck, the rains left and filming took place as scheduled. We missed watching the filming, but look forward to seeing the end result. Check out Beverly's excellent site. She has tons of neat ideas for those who want to deck their homes out for Halloween. She has one section I particularly enjoy in which she shares the things she tried that worked well, and those that didn't.
(I knew I couldn't resist the political comment -- have any of you seen the Kerry Halloween mask? It is pretty scary!)
