Happy Halloween (or whatever the greeting is - we are not learned in the art of Halloween here, to the bemusement of V)!
I do have a child, however, who has a birthday and an imagination suited to take advantage of this festivity - as always, 'Salina-style.

Still, there was more than enough sugar products to keep them all amused - and hatching even greater plans for Halloween '10.
