October arrives tomorrow. Halloween in one month. We decided to celebrate the season by putting our fingers into mystery substances that conjure up spooky sensations.

Try this experiment at your house. Next time you sit down for a meal, just have the diners brush over their plates and start taking guesses. It's good, clean gross fun.

If you have little kids, take them to KRNA's Kids Fest on October 24 at the Helen G. Nassif YMCA. We'll have a kid-friendly haunted house and lots more.
