    Great story Kat! I would say that I enjoyed it, but that is the wrong sentiment. Best wishes to you, SLT, and your family and friends. Stay safe.

      Thank you! We're well and just getting antsy to help people out. Really worried for my restaurant friends.

    I find Flickr to be a pain in the tu-tu. If I could load a photo, NOT a video, here I'd do it. Sorry!

    That's a big mouth. I'd hit it.

    I guess Clinton was a few blocks away last night stumping for Obama. Ryan was in town, too. Didn't read that story. Don't care.

    NFL loser bowl on tonight.

    Good morning all! It finally stopped raining here. Yay! What a mess on the east coast. It just breaks your heart to view the devastation. Glad to hear that your friends & families are reporting in, and are safe. It really sucks to be without power. Hard to get life back on track without electricity. Hopefully, it won't last too long. May each day get better than the last. Have a good day all!

      You, sir, are evil. What'd you and the fam dress up as last nite? We saw the world's cutest 3 year old cop. He shot all our decorations.

        LB was DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba and LB2 was a Lion.

        Sir Biddle went as the angry homeowner mad about the hood rats with no costumes trick-or-treating at 10:15. No light on. No Candy. Go back across the river!

          I'm with you. I'll give out candy to anyone in costume, regardless of age – once. A group of teens tried to double dip on us last year, so I was watching for them this year. No show this year.

          Wanna borrow my wh!p in case they come back?

    Hola Klatschmenons! Glad to see y'all here. I'm hunkered down in Brooklyn with a houseguest and her dog, but fine. Stay warm and well. Rabbit rabbit.

      Thinking of you the past few days...glad to know you are OK. By hunkering down, does that mean you are without power too, or by way of posts you have power? Found a link on main site yesterday from Mayo Clinic on meals to make without power, good idea for anyone affected by power outages...

      Let us know if there is anything we can do to help!

    Good morning all. Hope everyone is doing well today.

    Talked to Mary Shannon last night, and she is STILL without power. She brought some soup over to our Dad, who is moping around the house and won't leave for any reason. According to the power company, this could last 7-10 DAYS?!?!?!

      I'm afraid to ask. What was the announcement? Gotta link?

      • JainaJade

        Too many links but short story is Disney bought Lucasfilm, and everything that goes with it, on Tuesday for just over 4 Billion Dollars! They also announced that Episode VII is in work and will be released sometime in 2015, no word on when Episode VII will take place outside of post-Empire. Lots of theories now on what is going to happen but in general people are positive about it, primarily because of the sucess Disney has had with the Marvel franchise.

          Good grief. I wonder if Walt had this in mind when he built his business.

      Yeah when I heard about that I thougt of you. What's your take on that??

      • JainaJade@Jerv

        I think this could be a very good thing, especially looking at the sucess of the Marvel franchise since the buy-out. I'm hoping this will release some of the book series that have been on hold and will also result in more Alt-View books being published. As for Episode VII, I'm hoping it will take place during the Legacy of the Force time period. This would allow them to keep the principal actors since timeline wise it's 30yrs+ down the road. It would also introduce a ton of new characters, including some kick butt females that could bring new meaning to the "Disney Princess" concept.

    Good am! Did everyone survive the visits from the ghosts & goblins last pm? I had 1 kid who really had a good costume...he was a "red box" video rental. He painted a box with head & arm holes in it, glued video labels to it. It looked just like 1. Simple, yet creative. Anyone else have any creative trick or treaters?
