There’s only one time of year when I sort of, kind of like spiders, and that’s Halloween. Perhaps accept them would be more accurate, because they’re fun to decorate with. Don’t you think? That and eyeballs. Who knew that body parts and insects would become such enticing household decor one month out of the year? If you love to incorporate creepy-crawlies into your home, then you’ll love to “scare” your Halloween party or dinner guests with them even more.

    I am a 51 year old man. I have struggled to raise my children and make sure my family has what they need to survive. I am a professional with alot of skills in the automotive trade. I am filing bankruptcy tomorrow. I wish that certain cable channels would recognize the real prob;ems that this economy has brought to the general public. I like to look at the houses that you show, but it makes me sick when I see those millionaires turning their noses up to houses that dont quite suit them for one reason or another. The reason they have their money is because they have people like me working for them.. Thank you very much.
