No Tricks, Just Treats Today. So far….. Anyone seen Irma Vep lately?

Today:  Homage to Jim Henson’s Ghost for creating The Muppets in all their giddy glory:

Treat you can eat!:  Pumpkin Cake for everyone! Veronica’s “Wacky Pumpkin Spice Cake {Vegan}” can be found here: http://veronicascornucopia.com/2011/10/26/wacky-pumpkin-spice-cake-vegan/comment-page-1/#comment-22374

I tweaked the recipe a tad to suit my own needs. It’s the best pumpkin cake I’ve made so far.  If you’re looking for a Halloween Treat this might suit you too.  Yes, it’s worth getting REAL maple syrup for the glaze.  My tweaks can be found among the comments. Yes, the cake tastes as good as it looks.  Mine is half gone.

A BOO! Too!:   Ahhh the mysteries of Paris in 1915!  There’s a free download of Les Vampires available at Silent Films.  Any Irma Vep fans lurking out there? For tonight’s viewing pleasure I’ve got a disc copy from my public library which never ceases to amaze me with all its wonderful book and film treats year round.  Discovered several interesting posters and still photographs  for this silent film online. If anyone has a favorite please share it in a comment.

As for all the “comments” left on various older blog posts–some are puzzling, some have been sent to the spam folder for total lack of relevance, and some folks perhaps ought to check the dates of those older posts in regard to the currency of the information they offer. I don’t “update” information which was presented as correct at the time of posting but which has since changed.

Safe regards to anyone who has had to deal with Sandy–The Storm– not the very nice dog who occasionally comments on this blog.

growling from the shadows

Ever been walking along minding your own business and get the feeling of being watched by some being hiding in the shadows? Hmm? Torn by curiosity to have a good look and by better judgement telling you to move along which do you do? Stride directly into the darkest part of the gloom or walk spritely on past without making eye contact with the unsettling observer?

Or, have you ever cooled your red-hot heels in the relief offered in the dark side of the sun and stood silently watching the people flow by as if on one of those moving sidewalks some airports provide for weary feet of fretful travellers?

Ever wonder what life is like inside a primeval forest? Is the human constructed environment a shallow shadow of food chain reality?

Dark cheers to all. Replies and responses are forthcoming.

Question: Anyone out there in the cyberswamp live near  or in a forest?

Guess what, there are bison in Poland–and there have been for thousands of years. Yeah, American Indians don’t have a monopoly on buffalo–or their preservation.  Now that’s a cheery thought. Or is it?
