Halloween Candy Poll

The Times- Standard reports on a recent poll on favorite Halloween candies. Number one is my life long favorite, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. For once I don't feel like the loneliest guy in the world.

Good thing about me is I don't have much of a sweet tooth and rarely eat candy. Otherwise, I'd probably be big and fat like so many of you.

You're the only blogger I know of who insults his readers. I prefer Reeses also. People who enjoy having trick or treaters at the door can register at Next Door to be put on their map as a house with candy. Can't give you a link because I can only do the Cutten link.[

Insults? Let's just call it my roundabout way of giving constructive criticism. C'mon, Jule. When you read that didn't you have even a slight urge to go weigh yourself? See? It worked.

I saw that Nextdoor idea when it was posted. Seems to me it would make more sense to map the houses that don't want trick or treaters coming by.

It seems common sense to me that if a house doesn't have decorations up, as is ours, kids should not bother that house. Seems most parents have their kids skip the house but a handful still show up. How rude!

I'm wondering if I should post to Nextdoor a mention that if lights are out and a house doesn't have decorations, it means they're not interested in participating in Halloween? It should be a rule of thumb, but apparently some parents and kids don't care.

I weigh myself when I want to, which is most mornings. I think the map would look more like one house every block. We normally don't get ANY trick or treaters so I'm hoping this will bring a few. I'm definitely staying in and guarding the manse. A couple of years ago on Hallowe'en someone threw my pumpkins out in the street and made a big mess which I had to clean up.

Awww....someone broke your pumpkin? Poor, girl. Lol.

Years ago when I was working on the westside a EPD car drove up and out came a lady cop with a real young asian kid. There was a smashed pumpkin out on the street. The cop went to the door of the house where the pumpkin was smashed, talked to the owners and then directed the kid to clean up the pumpkin. I guess somehow he got caught so had to clean it up.
