Back in 2019 my friend Jose began texting me feverishly saying he had a video I needed to see now.

I said, let's get a look at this video already, it can't live up to the hype, then he sent it. Not only did it live up to the hype but it surpassed it. There are few things I love more than someone acting a fool in broad daylight and that is exactly what was happening in this video. I published an article about it, lending more ammunition to anyone who thinks I am a raging a-hole.

Publishing this video each year has become my own Autumn/Halloween tradition, it's my version of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." You should note, before you open it, that it's probably NSFW (Not Safe for Work) and NSFC (Not Safe for Children) unless you are in the mood to explain yourself and apologize all day.

I actually almost forgot that it was my civic duty to publish this video again until I saw the scarecrows popping up all over Main Street. That is the real tradition, the streets are lined with homemade scarecrows each year for a local competition. It's a wholesome, fun way to celebrate Halloween for the whole community.

Assuming someone doesn't drink a sleeve of nips in the middle of the day and decide to start diddling the scarecrows. Stay safe out there folks, Halloween season can be a scary time.

CT Residents Share Glowing Reviews of the Nutmeg State

When you live somewhere it's easy to discuss what is wrong with the place or what can be done to make it better. However, it's not that often that a person or persons will share what they appreciate about their home. I love Connecticut, so I went in search of others who love it too and found some great reviews about the best things about living in the Nutmeg State. These glowing reviews of CT came from Reddit of all places, on the Connecticut page.

Exploring Beyond the Rusty Gates of Danbury's Oldest Cemetery on Wooster Street

I live just down the block from the Wooster Street Cemetery and whenever I pass, I am always struck at how odd it is. You have this quiet, beautiful place that is dedicated to the people who were buried there, in the middle of a busy city and almost no one ever goes there. I decided to go take a deeper look around and see what was beyond the iron gates and stone walls.
