Amusements before TV, Hump Day, Haunted Houses

Happy Wednesday everyone! I won't even say it. 

6:15- Silly things we used to do before there were TV's, Cell Phones etc.  So funny, courtesy of Mental Floss. My favorite...riding the escalator.  Read the rest of the list here.

6:45- Kids got in  trouble for using the term "hump day". Seriously.


7:15-  It’s not even Halloween yet, and across the country, haunted houses are already raking in a scary amount of dough!  With more than 2,500 haunted attractions worldwide (most right here in the U.S.), the industry is now worth a whopping $300 million.  A single haunted house can make anywhere from $50,000 to $3 million in a single season, with tickets usually going for between $15 and $40.  Twenty percent of the nearly 160 million consumers who plan to celebrate Halloween this year intend to visit a haunted attraction of some kind.  And we’re not talking kiddie stuff here- today’s haunted houses offer an interactive experience for guests who want to be truly, genuinely scared.

Here a  few happening in our area:
