    bfjou812 replied to a thread Pneumatic: Pop-up Lunger mech plan in Halloween Props
    The one I built was based on the design from Pandemic Haunt Productions. I changed some of the dimensions to suit my needs, but the basic idea and layout was there and that is what I used. Their website seems to be gone, not sure if they are still in business. If you want to pm me and I might be able to send you the plans. I did change things in the construction of it due to the fact that I didn't / don't like the idea of a bolt going through a hole in a square tube for a pivot. I used...

    Here is one I built a few years ago. The only thing I can envision is the whole mechanism falling from the ceiling if not very securely mounted. If the movement is somewhat fast/violent you will have the whole thing moving around if not secured. If you have any questions , PM me here.

    Our weather is, finally, warming up to outdoor planting temps!! Now that our lows are out of the danger far...and our highs are jumping up to 70's and 80's all of the sudden (why do we never have a nice, long Spring or Fall, anymore?? Just right up to 80's...sigh...), I went ahead and started planting my seedlings in ground, outside. Of course, no sooner do I do this and the weather says possible severe storms, tomorrow. Sigh, again. Here's to hoping everything doesn't get pummeled. ...

    Interesting. If I can get some of each to germinate and get to full size/bloom, it'll be cool to see the differences in the two and what they each attract in my area. I love sunflowers...they are gorgeous and always give me those first "Fall is coming" feelings in the, they give me seeds for the animals for the Winter!

    I got my Sunflowers started, yesterday, in my greenhouse. I just kept forgetting to start them...grrrr. Oh well. They are both Giant varieties: the Mammoth Gray Stripes I usually plant and some new Russian Giant ones that a friend sent me some seeds of. We will see how they do as, last year, animals ripped all mine up and the one that made it was broken before it could bloom...sigh... It's getting closer and closer to time to start germinating my pumpkins, squash and cucumbers...counting...

    I bought this last week for $5. The woman said that the sound was broken but could probably be fixed. She agreed to ship it to me and packed it up in lots of bubble wrap and sent it. Shipping was a little over $11 and well worth it. Sound does work, but I haven't done much more than pull it out the box and flip on the switch for a few seconds. I also scored a 6 ft. witch for $25. It was in a small town about an hour and a half from me. I have an ex student who lives there so I PayPal 'd her...

    This is my skip year but I'm doing an 80s themed party for 2020. Got a whole bunch of giveaway items for the kids and 80s decor items too. Thought I was buying a lot. One day someone bought 3 shopping carts full of costumes. Today a guy in a huge white van had at least 100 bags of party merchandise. Got to imagine that some of these people are reselling at flea markets or something. Sorry, don't know why this photo ended up upside down.

    Okay, I have been in my own personal Halloween heaven these last couple weeks. There is a solitary Party City that is closing down near my house. They have been putting out their Halloween items at 70 to 90 percent off. Got a whole bunch of wall scene setters too! These photos are only half of what I've bought. Picked up a ton of costumes for my props too. I've been stopping in every couple days as they keep bringing more stuff out. I've spent around $250 but have picked up $1000 worth...

    Stinkerbell those are awesome ideas. what do you attach the sides to? I would love to do something like this but don't have poles or anything to attach sides to. I just looked at your link and saw the canopies put together. Duh, I never thought of that either! Smacks my head. We have had so much rain the past few years, I really wish I could use my large screened porch in the back yard, but hubby is adamant about not having them in the back. He is afraid of lawsuits and I keep telling we...

    Like ooojen and some others, our weather is still too up and down to start and pumpkins or squash. All I have planted outside is still some lettuce and carrots...which recently started sprouting...and I just transplanted some of my flower seedlings from my greenhouse into my fairy garden, which I set up, yesterday, and into pots. We will see how they do with our up and down temps and more upcoming rainy weather (come on, Illinois is already drowning and flooding!!). I still have Marigolds,...

    I have my Pumpkin on a Stick's sprouting, too. They are doing pretty good. I hope I'll get to plant them outside, soon...but, alas, not yet, as we have possible snow coming this weekend. As for the grow lights, previously I had just been using regular under cabinet lights attached to each shelf in my mini greenhouse. For my birthday in December, my husband bought me an actual LED grow light with the red and blue lights to replace my regular light that fried itself. While the regular lights I...

    What drum corp are you talking about? In my family, My brother and two sisters were in the Colt 45's (in the 70's). And my nephew spent 8 years traveling with the Colts out of Dubuque, Iowa. He got the chance to direct a couple of times and he loved it. He's a music major in Chicago now. Me? I warmed the bleachers and clapped my heart out for 20 some years. No music talent here.

    Our situations sound so eerily similar. My sister is bi-polar and has borderline personality disorder as well. She is 7 years older than me and has this deep-seeded jealousy of me that comes out as hatred so often. I've finally had to basically sever ties with her for my own sanity. It's really a sad situation, but I can't keep subjecting myself to the roller coaster of emotional torment she dishes out. I feel like I'm starting to improve somewhat with this pneumonia, but I'm still doing breathing treatments several times a day. Hopefully this week I'll at least have some energy to contact the last known attorney Mom dealt with to see where to go next with this ordeal.

    you were in my profile, are you my reaper?
  10. Love this Darius!

    blood droops on Roses and tipped over caskets,
    black lights and spiders and strange glowing baskets
    decaying old bodies all tied up with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    old granite tomb stones and things that are creepy
    little small things that frighten the sleepy
    specters and statues with reptilian wings
    these are a few of my favorite things.

    ghost in the grave yard and wicked old hags
    things that make children think twice with their bags
    zombies who make the bats flutter and scream
    These are a few of my Favorite things.

    When the dead rise
    When the wolves bite
    when your feeling ... hmmmm .. bad
    Just simply remember my favorite things
    then you will feel quite maaaad!
