My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - Superstitions

"Another Halloween superstition occurred at midnight. That was the time when boys and girls went into the garden blindfolded and each pulled a cabbage (some claimed it was kale runts). Supposedly, the form of the cabbage head and its stalk denoted the physical peculiarities of the person’s future husband or wife. There was also a belief that if the roots tasted sweet or sour, it reflected the future spouse’s temperament." 

Fun fact about holiday traditions during the 19th century gleaned from a link shared via Google Plus by Geri Walton.

Glad she shared.  Also glad it's not true!  ☺






Not related but of significant note, Ms. Walton is the author of "Marie Antoinette’s Confidante: The Rise and Fall of the Princesse de Lamballe". Just an FYI.

My Pick for Best of Halloween Spooky Scary Stories

In the mood for a really spooky scary story for #Halloween?

Or do you just want to know what human beings are capable of doing to other human beings?

This story is about an entire family who had an insatiable craving for consuming human flesh. The incidents happened circa 1400 A.D. They were finally brought to justice and executed. 

Executed??!!  Can't believe they didn't have a lawyer to plead insanity as their defense. For sure, they were all basket cases!!

My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - Gothic Garden

A new trend in gardening is creating a gothic garden with mystical garden statues, and black and deep purple flowers.

In lieu of traditional pastel or brightly colored flowers, a gothic garden is becoming popular and these black (or dark purple) flowers are often included in the mix.

  • Centaurea, Black Sprite PPAF
  • Onyx Odyssey Hellebore
  • Black Star Calla Lily

Happy Halloween! “Trick or Treat for UNICEF!” #BeScaryGood

When I was young there was a campaign/advertisement that came on television every year around or near the time to celebrate Halloween. It went like this: Children would knock on the door and when the neighbor opened their door, instead of asking for candy the kids would shout:

Trick or Treat for UNICEF!


UNICEF logo
The campaign began in 1950.  Certainly made an imprint in my mind. The idea was to get people to donate to the cause of helping children all over the world. This October 2017 will be the 67th year. I liked the idea THEN and like it NOW. Sharing this precious gem found via the UNICEF Tumblr blog. No doubt there are all kinds of ways one can contribute to such a worthy cause.

UNICEF:
Books, pencils, playgrounds, crayons – not all children will have access to these things going back to school. But they will be exposed to violence: http://uni.cf/1AbEGqt


Bless the children always.  Have to keep this charity work on the radar.  Always embrace an opportunity, especially when it's a holiday, and find a means to extend charity to those less fortunate. Trick or Treat for UNICEF!!

You're Wearing That? | Wearable Technology | Tech in Biz

You're wearing that? Uuhh ... yeah! Why not? What are you? Fashion police??

Where I can see this kind of research and development going or CAN GO, is how great it would be if you had a physical handicap and these devices helped you make up for that deficit.  That may not be the direction they're going, but can't you envision that?

Celebrating Asian-American Contemporary Artists

Giana Nguyen-Foster is a Vietnamese-American singer/songwriter. We connected via Facebook back in 2011, the same year her debut solo EP, "For Now ", had been released. At that time she was promoting herself by collaborating with other musicians, and performing at shows in the Southern California area.


The Legend Bruce Lee (Nov 27, 1940 - July 20, 1973)

God bless the Internet and especially social networks, bloggers, and online writing communities. So there's this really cool guy - Nathan Bernardo, aka NateB11 - and he is a loyal and devoted martial arts disciple. He knows a lot about MA and writes articles on the topic.

Good Fortune: Okyo's Cranes Now on View | Unframed (Reblog)

" ... Maruyama Okyo (1733-95), a painter who revolutionized the practice and taught or influenced generations of Japanese painters." (NOTE: At the time of the posting the paintings were on exhibit; not at the time of this reblogging.) The Okyo artwork motivated me to search for more pictures, photos, and illustrations of cranes.


My Five (5) Good Fortunes

We can all write our fortunes. In my case my daughter wrote 5 good fortunes for me. Her predictions for my future are greatly appreciated and if her advice is heeded no reason why they won't come true. :) Next time you have a party, consider giving out homemade fortune cookies.

Happy Earth Day! 2016 and Beyond! Beyond!! Yes? Save the Planet! Right?

In 2014, Earth Day was on a Tuesday and so the celebration of Tree Tuesday could be combined. Being an ardent tree lover, made a special effort to publish this post:

Last year, 2015, NASA celebrated the 45th annual Earth Day, but for me the day came and went. Nevertheless, determined to make some sort of mention this post ("Talk to the other NOAA.") was shared via my Google Plus profile page and to my surprise, fellow Plussers were interested on making comments for posterity.




This year 2016, making it point to carry on the tradition of celebrating Earth Day.  Because really ... Mars (or any other planet) is not a better place.  We need to save this planet!  One World!  That's all we got!
