In the United States, pumpkins go hand in hand with the fall holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. An orange fruit harvested in October, this nutritious and versatile plant features flowers, seeds and flesh that are edible and rich in vitamins. Pumpkin is used to make soups, desserts and breads, and many Americans include pumpkin pie in their Thanksgiving meals. Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns is a popular Halloween tradition.

Congratulations! You have found the last item, the pumpkin. Take all the items you have gathered and get ready to return them to the Great Pumpkin. emoticon

For your final challenge, meet the Great Pumpkin at the Airship launch pad on Rhythm Island (top of Lookout Mountain). Post when you have completed this last take. You have completed the challenge!

Thanks everyone.

My uncle had surgery last night. The findings weren't good. He has a lot of damage to his colon from diverticulitis. Also the infection is in his bladder and kidneys. He never had a colonoscopy.
Right now he has a colostomy bag that may or may not be permanent. He has other surgeries in his future.
Although it breaks my heart, we are going to put my aunt in respite care probably on Monday. After that who knows.

I am on elder person sitting duty. My 88 yo uncle is in the hospital. Most likely heading towards surgery to remove an abscess in his bowel. They have his on IV antibiotics to see if they can reduce it but I think that they are leaning towards surgery. They cannot aspirate it because of its location.
Making matters worse, he is my aunt's primary caregiver. She has dementia. I have been staying with her most of each day. First night staying over but now we have someone to stay overnight and her caregiver comes during the day for 3 hours so I can go home for a break. Still working through all of this and my boss is awesome! I am going to call for some more help because I can't survive on the current schedule. Leave at 8pm, go home, try to do a few things, crash and burn, sleep, and be back at her house by 8am.
my few moments on SP is a nice break and I am thankful for it. Need to get some exercise in too. ugh......

Goblins are malicious. A goblin is a “grotesque sprite or elf.” Goblins can be mischievous. They can also assume human and animal form and assail people. Goblin comes from the German kobold. In German folklore, a kobold was a mischievous household spirit. Sometimes the kobold is helpful and sings to children. But too often, he hides valuable household items, kicks people, and erupts in rage when he doesn’t get enough food.

How was the cruise?

You have arrived in the Balkan Mountains. Some historians think that a real person — Vlad the Impaler, or Vlad III, a medieval Romanian prince who was also known as Dracula — inspired Stoker's literary vampire.
In the northern Balkan Mountains, near Vlad III's home region of Wallachia, locals do tell folktales about "moroi," or vampirelike children. According to legend, moroi are children who die before they are baptized and who dine on the blood of cattle before leaving Earth and finding their place in heaven or hell.

You have arrived in the Balkan Mountains. Some historians think that a real person — Vlad the Impaler, or Vlad III, a medieval Romanian prince who was also known as Dracula — inspired Stoker's literary vampire.
In the northern Balkan Mountains, near Vlad III's home region of Wallachia, locals do tell folktales about "moroi," or vampirelike children. According to legend, moroi are children who die before they are baptized and who dine on the blood of cattle before leaving Earth and finding their place in heaven or hell.


Your pick is a Wii challenge. Play tennis 3 games of Wii tennis or do 15 mins of yoga. Make another pick.

You have arrived in the Midwestern part of the United States. In ancient times the scarecrow represented the harvest. A scarecrow is a man made of straw. The origins of the scarecrow vary. Most people believe that the scarecrow was invented to keep crows away from the fields' crops; however, there are some scholars that believe that the scarecrow idea originated in ancient times when a man was sacrificed to appease the gods and to ensure a healthy harvest.

Your pick is a SP challenge. Read this article Why Potatoes are Good for you. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/

Make another pick.

Vicki - I am happy to check this challenge too. Up to you if you want to continue.

You have arrived in France. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. To commemorate the event, they built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. Bonfires of course, naturally attract a lot of bugs; so at night while these large bonfires were burning brightly while the villagers were celebrating, bugs of all kinds were attracted to the light and were flying around in great abundance. The local bat population saw an opportunity for a good feeding frenzy. The bats came out to eat the bugs; it's as simple as that. Bats have been associated with Halloween ever since.
Next stop is the Midwest

Congratulations! You found the bats! Did you know that bats are the only flying mammal? There are about 1,200 species in all, which is almost a fourth of the total number of mammals.
Next you are heading to the of the Midwest of the United States

I will post the recipe I used for the pumpkin spice muffins:

1 small can of pumpkin
1 spice cake mix
1/2 cup water
Nuts (optional)

I mixed this all together, filled greased muffin tins, and baked for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. They were yummy.

Now I choose #2.

In the United States, pumpkins go hand in hand with the fall holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. An orange fruit harvested in October, this nutritious and versatile plant features flowers, seeds and flesh that are edible and rich in vitamins. Pumpkin is used to make soups, desserts and breads, and many Americans include pumpkin pie in their Thanksgiving meals. Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns is a popular Halloween tradition.

Post a recipe containing pumpkin that you’ve made or would like to make. Make another pick.
