I will give up chocolate and potato chips... but not wine.

I gave up alcohol some years ago. Definitely feel better for it.

Chocolate more difficult.

Are Aussie 'chips' what we call 'crisps' in the UK? (Dry, brittle, flavoured or salted?) I have hated them for years.

Chips, on the other hand, (freshly cut potato, fried in oil) I eat regularly with fish and by themselves.

Yep, crisps.

Turns out almonds have terrible water demands, too.

I had to get a bag of chocolates in case any kids come around tonight for Halloween.

However, it's miserable weather, so I may be forced to eat all the Milky Ways.

Oh dear! What a shame. I'll bet you're devastated.

Terrible weather.

No one came.

I have 18 chocolate bars to deal with!

Oh the Humanity!

We started with 170 pieces of candy - I ate one, husband ate 2.  There are 12 pieces left.  We had a very busy night, plus all of our fire alarms went off just before 11 PM, finally had to have the Fire Department out to shut them off and take them down, they just left.  We didn't know how to do it.  Felt really, really stupid... They told us the alarms throughout the house are hard-wired, when one dies, they all die and they were all overdue to die.  God, what a noise.  Head still hurts.

Well at least it was in the spirit of Halloween when you scared the hell out of everyone in the neighbourhood!

That is an interesting observation - I waited out on the front porch for the firemen to show up and could very plainly hear the alarms.  Not one person popped their heads of  their doors to see what was happening, and there are 3 houses directly across from us, and of course one on each side.  No one was interested.  Not sure I can rely on my neighbors in an emergency.

I've lived in the same house since 1981 and never had a trick or treater. It is not part of local culture. Occasionally, I used to have 'Penny for the Guy' kids, but none in the last couple of decades. Have had the occasional carol singers, but in the past. Nothing this century.

Times they are a changing.
