If you want to be scared like never before this Halloween season, then there's only one place to go!
The Wisconsin Feargrounds at the Waukesha County Expo Center!
I went there on Saturday with my husband Aaron. 'Timmer' and his wife Ann Marie are the real deal when it comes to putting together three haunted houses that even the toughest of characters will get scared in.
Take my husband for example. He's a guy who laughs during horror movies. He admitted that he almost had to leave while going throug the second house because it freaked him out that much. But make no mistake, he was defintely a happy customer.
The costumes, the makeup and the detail in all of these rooms were unbelievable. There were so many times when I forgot that I was actually in Waukesha. Each room takes you to a whole new world, like a creepy living room with bugs all over the wall - AMAZING!
Oh and watch out above! You never know what direction a ghost will come out and scare you.
It's totally worth the time to get a group together and visit the Wisconsin Feargrounds!

They Got To Me...
The two guys from A Great Big World stopped by the Mix studios to sing their hit, "Say Something" and it happened...I cried.
If you have not listened to the song yet...well...I suggest you do, but don't cry :( These guys are very nice and I wish them nothing but success!
I recently spent some time a La Reve...want to see what I enjoyed?

Create a Pest Management Calendar
Is your mailbox filling with next year's calendars? Put them to use managing pests in the garden.
No, I'm not talking about smashing insects with the rolled up calendar. Instead, use them to develop a pest-monitoring calendar for next year.
Take a few minutes to review this year's garden journal. Look for notes on any pest problems you encountered. Make a note to watch for these pests in next year's calendar. This helps with early detection; a key to successful control.
Consider adding notes about the weather and control measures you tried that were effective. Try using preventative eco-friendly measures like barriers and traps to prevent problems. Covering your cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower before the cabbageworm moths are active allows you to prevent damage.
Setting out shallow cans of stale beer will help you minimize feeding damage by slugs and snails during wet weather.
A bit more information: No garden journal? This is a good opportunity to create one that includes your growing successes, failures as well as pest problems. Use a spiral notebook, three-ring binder or computer calendar or spreadsheet. Just make it easy and fun. That way you are sure to keep recording, referencing and putting your gardening experiences to work.
