These are some of my “spooky babies”.
The ones I embrace a little tighter than the rest,
before I ruffle their hair and shoo them out of the door..
reminding them that if Mama finds another dead body
left all willy nilly in the middle of her hallway again…
she’s gonna remind them what “spooky” is really
….because the only things left in this world to count on are the joys that true beauty and music can bring you..not much else….
…because the talent coming out of Russia these days is amazing. I couldn’t help but try…

spare yourself this horrid pain
of gazing long upon the grain
to dream of loving eyes again
and other sweetness too
as you sadly misconstrue
dark ugly knotholes watching you

Another time in history when concerns were running hot about the subject of mental defectives in our country.
Photo taken from “Immigration And The Prevention Of Insanity (Note 1)” at
By THOMAS W. SALMON. M.D., NEW YORK, Past Assistant Surgeon, U. S. Public Health Service ; Director of Special Studies, National Committee for Mental Hygiene.
Read at Mental Hygiene Conference, under auspices of Massachusetts Society for Mental Hygiene, Tremont Temple, Boston, April 2, 1913.
This is Ellis Island.. where people were subject to
being suspected as mental defectives by the way they looked.
An article which made me wonder how the eugenacist of old would feel about our continued research, diagnosing and pointing out of “mental deficiencies.”
Would there be applauding or pouting?
It’s never the sun’s intention to prevent us from seeing what we believe we can see.
Dreams once clearly envisioned and brightly lit. Now seemingly darkened deep and wiped away.
While we grumble our annoyance over its refusal to shine a little longer on the days we need it most. How we conveniently forget..
that it’s the earth who turns away like a selfish child
leaving us wild eyed in the shadows.
that it is the sun who remains like a gracious mother
willing to give us as much time as it takes.

Now that Easter has passed..it’s time to get down to some serious egg and bunny business on World of Warcraft.
The following was taken from the World of Warcraft guide site “WowHead“.
It has good tips on spotting the popular eggs quicker and easier.
For the rest of the Noblegarden guide and more loot/quests info
Brightly Colored Eggs
Players will be scurrying to hunt down Brightly Colored Eggs that spawn hidden in the starting areas of Azeroth:
Eggs can be found only in the starting areas. They may be crowded, but here are some tips to making your egg-hunting go smoothly:
Set your Environmental Detail and Ground Clutter settings down low, and zoom out. This will help you see eggs spawn before environmental objects like bushes or crates do.
Play around with camera angles–this will help you click on eggs even if you can’t see them.
Grab speed boosts so you can zip around between spawn points faster.
Azure Watch is considered to be the best place for the Alliance due to the frequency of spawn points and the out of the way location. Get to the Exodar by taking a Mage Portal, or the portal or boat from Darnassus.
Falconwing Square is considered to be the best place for the Horde due to its straightforward layout. Get to Silvermoon by taking a Mage Portal, or the portal from the Undercity.

“Easter Parade” , once a traditional Easter standard for the family to enjoy together, is well worth a look and listen for the modern family as well.
Lovely costumes, fantastic voices and plenty of pep for the bunnies to bounce to.

My goodness we loved this song, didn’t we?
I couldn’t help trying my hand at the video; loving it now as I loved it twenty years ago.
The original video as well.
