Halloween Jokes -- Over 300 Good Ones! | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

Happy Halloween everyone!

 

Just for grins today I found a great collection of funny Halloween jokes (there are a lot of not-so-funny ones out there)!

 

Hope these bring a chuckle and are fun to share.

 

Here in CA we also celebrate the Day Of The Dead where we hang out in graveyards and honor our ancestors.

 

Eat, drink and be scarry today!

8 Strange and Cool Summer Camps For Kids (summer, camp, kids) - ODDEE

8 Strange and Cool Summer Camps For Kids (summer, camp, kids) - ODDEE | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Summer camp no longer means just swimming, arts and crafts or roasting marshmallows. Check out these 8 crazy and fun ways to spend the summer! (summer, camp, kids)
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Having grown up in the summer camp industry, my parents owned and operated two camps in Maine, I was fascinated to see some of there alternatives. Personally, the one I would have liked best is not in this set -- that would have been for readers and writers. Nevertheless, these are impressive and remind us that kids can have some wonderful experiences and learn a great deal outside of school. Of course somebody has to foot the bill. For too many kids, the most they can hope for is a week of church camp or worse a few hours a week at the neighborhood pool. Childhood should be rich with possibilities and experiences for all. How do we make that happen?

Seven-and-a-half years ago, I witnessed my husband’s death from an aggressive form of lymphoma. Three-and-a-half years ago, I was diagnosed with metastatic cancer that has spread from my breast to my...
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I share this because the topic should be of universal concern, not just state by state. I can think of no more important right than the right to die with dignity and under ones own rational choices. It infuriates me that when I feel my life no longer has quality that I will not have a simple, legal, and effective method available for its end. That is a choice we all deserve the opportunity to make, whatever our final decision.

Americans Are Smoking More Pot

Americans Are Smoking More Pot | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The World Drug Report found that as laws in the U.S. have relaxed toward marijuana, prices for the herb have dropped, far more people have begun to partake, and more people have landed in the hospital due to "cannabis-related treatment admissions"
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Yes, legalizing pot will lead to wider use and more people using it unwisely, but over the long run much of that will even out as the once forbidden fruit becomes just another option on the menu of life. Also, consider the decrease in criminal events, police involvements, etc. to say nothing of tax revenues and we have a no-brainer.

Why John Boehner is really suing Barack Obama

Why John Boehner is really suing Barack Obama | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
It's executive actions, not executive orders.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I found this interesting; however, I still think Mr. Boehner is wrong. Administrating the law means deciding among other things the priorities which are followed and the manner in which the law is followed. If a specific action offends Boehner, he should certainly encourage somebody who is directly affected to sue about that law, but a general suit against administrative role can only lead to a hamstrung government, which means even less effective functioning.

The Supreme Court has decided that Americans have a constitutional right to privacy in the personal information they carry on smartphones, ruling unanimously that police may not search such devices without a warrant from a magistrate.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

A good call by SCOTUS. Next we need to make warrants more difficult to get. At this point, that protection seems to be eroding as part of the madness of the so-called war on drugs.

What’s left of the political center?

What’s left of the political center? | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Party identification tells one part of the story, voting behavior tells another.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Perhaps the real point is that the two party system is outdated. Perhaps it is time for a parliamentary system with coalitions among parties so that building consensus with those closest in thinking rather than creating loggerheads with those who are different becomes the goal of every party at all times.

Small Costa Rica gives troubled Central America big boost at World Cup

Small Costa Rica gives troubled Central America big boost at World Cup | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
A win for Costa Rica against the Netherlands today could help unite – at least momentarily – this fractured, troubled region. Central America is the world’s deadliest region outside an active war zone.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Years ago when I was in Costa Rica, one of the things which consistently amazed me was the love of soccer and the proficiency. Barefoot youngsters and young adults played fierce games all over the place. It was a passion that I have never seen for sports in the U.S. So, I am nor surprised that this small nation can field such an outstanding team. I hope they make it to the top.
