Oct 2nd 2008 11:43AM I dissagree with Play Doh making the list. We give out full size candy bars every year. Last year our kids took goody bags to school and one of the items in them was play doh. In order to get enough for school we had to buy 3 packages which left us with some to give out to the neighborhood kids. As the kids came trick or treating they were given a choice of the full size candy bar or the play doh, guess what untill the play doh was gone it was the choice of at least 75% of the kids.
May 12th 2008 3:25PM I nearly jumped through the roof when I read the date. The family has already made plans to be in Anaheim at a very large amusment park across the street from the convention center, from Oct 9 -15. Guess I am gonna leave them at the park a day or two and visit the convention center.
Nov 15th 2007 10:54AM I live in New York and this is just another step in the tax war that Spitzer started back when he was AG. He wants us to declare and pay sales tax on all out of state purchases that we make and bring back into the state too. This also includes all purchases we make on local reservations. So we get to pay tax in the state we visit during the visit, and then again when we send in our taxes in april, what a deal.
Nov 1st 2006 11:02AM This was our third Halloween in our current home, the first year we had about 50 children come to our door, last year the count was a little over 60, last night we gave out close to 70 treats. We live in a neighborhood that is slowing seeing the older people moving out and being replaced by younger families. We have always given out full size candybars, and this year we included small containers of playdough, which was a hit with both the young and older kids.
