    Daughter went in the family room where I am cleaning up the house and getting rid of all the junk. She said, “the room looks smaller than when I was a kid.”

    Sigh, we can't have only the best from all times at the same time.But it is upon us to do as best as possible.

    No celebration is what it was when we were children. Time moves on. But most of all our eyes and hearts get old.

    Than you expect him to join soon?

    St Martin's day isn't what it once was. And with Corona last year and the unknown of this year that might damage again.

    All of my two doors down neighbor's cats are lined up staring through the TV room window. I think their owner is sleeping in and they're hungry. Jet hasn't joined the fray yet.

    St Martin's Day is not a big holiday in the States. Being a Protestant majority country few Saint's day holidays have gone mainstream. Pretty much the only vestiges you'll find are church services, the occasional recipe for Martin's goose and the pastries for sale in Polish bakeries.

    Hey do you folks make marcinki? Sorry, I only know the Polish name. For the uninitiated, they are a crescent shaped pastry filled with a poppy seed, almond and raisin filling, with a vanilla glaze. Our next door neighbor made them. But unlike her pierogis, I never learned to make them.

    Eat some goose, dumplings and red cabbage for us.

    St Martin's day was it in my youth until Halloween has taken it's toll.
    The lantern making and the St. Martin procession with bands playing and the children singing.
    And the candy bag.

    It is a very long time ago.

    When I was a kid, Halloween was one of the top holidays. A lot of it was the costumes. Some of it was roaming around at night. Some of it was candy. Some of it was that everyone in the neighborhood participated.

    My TV just started speaking Lakota at me! Apparently, Gap has decided Lakota is cool.

    Not much kids coming around and Halloween isn't traditional as in the English speaking world.

    May be I am wrong but I have had always the impression that it is a much advertised event for marketing and selling on just another occasion. I think we stay with more our traditions but well, other may think otherwise.

    My country is no longer the country of my childhood.

    Much in the times of my youth wasn't right but much of nowadays isn't better than the old times and in my eyes a lot is worse.

    Since our neighborhood has gentrified, they're bussing in kids from OKC and Little Rock, I think. Last time I handed out candy, 2019, I went through three 250 piece bags and ran out before 7:30pm. I recognized fewer than 10 kids as being from our neighborhood.

    Last year, I handed out bags of treats to the kids of our employees at work. I was going to hide this year and not hand out anything at the house this year and still may. But, I did buy a few bags for home, just in case.

    The stuff I'm referring to is a mix of big and little Tootsie Rolls (a chewy, chocolate taffy like candy), fruit chews (taffy), Dots (jelly candy) and Tootsie Pops (lollypops with a Tootsie Roll center). It's one of the cheaper Halloween candy mixes.

    Tootsie Rolls were a popular candy with the kids of the 1930's and 1940's. They were the first individually wrapped candy on the US market. They survive heat and were used in WWII and Korean War field rations. They are one of my mother's favorite candies. But by the time I was a kid, Tootsie Rolls were considered an inferior treat. Real chocolate bars were the premium score, LOL.

    We did not buy halloween costumes in my family. Mom sewed from the rag bag or using leftover fabric. Her favorite halloween costume was the tube -- a drawstring at the neck (and sometimes the bottom) and two slits for the arms. In orange, stuffed with newspaper, an old green pillow case with eye holes over the head and I was a pumpkin. Black with a painted cardboard box over my head and shoulders, two stuffed birds from the Christmas ornament box and I was a bird house. The best part of the tube was a 5th grader could sew one and mom could get out of the costume game.

    My first solo effort was a brown tube made from an old brown sheet, hung from a circle of cardboard around my neck, with some letters painted on the sheet, and ruffle of butcher paper around my neck. I was a Tootsie Roll. Unfortunately, my outfit prompted people to go out of their way to give me Tootsie Rolls, LOL.

    There's meant to be some gorgeous views of Mars this weekend. I, of course, being a LOD sufferer, will not be seeing it because the local weather is once again predicted to be nothing but a mess.

    What did you do today to be healthy?
    by ndnMSW
    I'm interested in hearing what people do each day for their own health, or for their families' health. I'm hoping this will become a running thread for people to post on a somewhat daily basis what they did each day that is healthy. Wellness, as is was brought up on another thread, is a HUGE area...

    Denver March and The Gathering
    by wardancer
    I see that the first 2 major powwows have been postponed/cancelled because of the fear of spreading Covid 19 / Corona virus.
    Do you think this was wise or is everyone in a panic ?
