Mazes are often built to hide terrible secrets, such as Minotaurs and collections of Jane Eyre fan fiction. Make a seasonal discovery with this Groupon. You can read about Minotaurs here: http://greece.mrdonn.org/theseus.html

When I had to read the story of Theseus and Ariadne in college, I wanted to name a daughter after Ariadne. I also wanted the name Tiffany, too. Tiffany won out, since I only had one daughter, LOL!

$12 for two tickets to The Deadly Harvest haunted corn maze (a $24 value)
The undead stalk the corn-maze grounds from dusk until midnight every Friday and Saturday starting October 5, with additional hours on October 28–31.

Dave's Pumpkin Patch

In eighth grade, David Vierra took a field trip to Apple Hill that changed his life. He returned determined to grow pumpkins, and at age 13 he began his first patch. That passion hasn’t waned in the last two decades—the fifth-generation farmer still cultivates a more than 2-acre patch, where gourds of many varieties and sizes await plucking. David also tends to his grandfather’s garden and 800 acres of specialty vegetables such as heirloom tomatoes, black seedless watermelons, and six varieties of hard squash.
Though he maintains his farm through hard work, Dave's Pumpkin Patch opens its doors to the public every autumn and, under the name Dave's Xmas Trees, every winter in the spirit of play. The annual Cornival*** features 12 family-friendly attractions such as pony rides, pig races, a pumpkin cannon that launches gourds 500 yards into the air, and a bunny barn. Santa Claus makes an appearance during winter activities to pose with visitors for photographs.

***How do you like the name, Cornival?
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
haunted anything you would never ever see me at, would have to many nightmares, I get them just thinking about it!

The family pumpkin patch sounds safe, I would go there.

But when Dan befriends a twelve year old girl with abilities even stronger than his own, the duo become targets of the True Knot, a cult of RV-driving, polyester-clad immortals who survive by torturing "Shining" children to death. The long wait for Dan's story fulfills its promise, a suspenseful, supernatural odyssey bearing the heartfelt human drama of Stephen King's finest work.




School House Rock--Interjections

When Reginald was home with flu, (uh huh)
The doctor knew just what to do:
He cured the infection,
With one small injection,
While Reginald uttered some interjections:

Ouch! That hurts!
Yow! That's not fair, giving a guy a shot down there!>

Interjections
Show excitement,
Or emotion.
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point,
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong. Mmmm...

Though Geraldine played hard to get, (uh huh)
Geraldo knew he'd woo her yet.
He showed his affection,
Despite her objections,
And Geraldine hollered some interjections:

Oh! I've never been so insulted in all my life!
Hey! You're kinda cute!>

Interjections
Show excitement,
Or emotion.
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point,
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.

So when you're happy
Or sad
Or frightened
Or mad
Or excited
Or glad
An interjection starts a sentence right!

The game was tied at seven all, (uh huh)
When Franklin found he had the ball.
He made a connection,
In the other direction,
And the crowd starting shouting out interjections:

Interjections
Show excitement,
Or emotion.
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point,
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.
So when you're happy
Or sad
Or frightened
Or mad
Or excited
Or glad
An interjection starts a sentence right!

Interjections
Show excitement,
Or emotion.
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point
or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.

Interjections!
Show excitement!
Or emotion!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah... yeah!!
No, I have never heard of this!! Sounds interesting!!

Thanks Seawaters, I'll check it out!!

Xmas, praying you feel lots better soon! Since we cannot give kids any medication, the teacher remedy for a headache is to get a wash cloth and fold in into a headband shape and soak it in cold, cold, cold water, gently squeeze out the water, and put it on the back of your neck. The cold makes the blood vessels constrict and lessens the pain.

Don't forget to take a picture of the boys together with their new haircuts, even if they will have it taken at school!
