Save the Scares for Halloween, Reading Should Be Shared


My parents used to live only 15 minutes from us. So every year at Halloween, after taking the kids trick or treating in the neighborhood, we’d all hop in the car and drive to grandma and grandpa’s house for an extra special Trick or Treat session.

I’m amazed at the ridiculous emails I still get from that Prince in Nairobi looking to give me his fortune just for helping him transfer some funds. This poor guy’s been at it for years!
