How to Make Our Gingerbread House

Graham Crackers are easy to cut with a serrated knife. Use frosting made of powdered sugar and water (not too wet though) as glue. Decorate with lots of candy! This year I made a train instead of a house and my brothers made the houses.

Halloween 2009

Billy Hooten Owl Boy Thanks so much for you guys, and Ryder, for sharing this with me. With all the cool things out there that somebody could be for Halloween, and they chose a character that I created, it's an honor Tom Sniegoski, author

Billy Hooten's Owl Boy

These are my favorite books. I've read all four. If you like comic books, then you'd love these chapter books. This morning I wrote an e-mail to the author. This is what he wrote back:

Hey Ryder,

Thanks for the awesome letter . . . and I'm really glad that you're enjoying the Owlboy books that I wrote. As of right now, there are only four in the series. Have you read all four?

1. Billy Hooten: Owlboy

2. Billy Hooten: Owlboy - The Girl With the Destructo Touch

3. Billy Hooten: Owlboy - Tremble At The Terror of Zis-Boom-Bah

4. Billy Hooten: Owlboy - The Flock of Fury

That's it for right now. Maybe I'll be writing some more in the future, but as of right now, there will only be four books.

Thanks for the email.

Tom Sniegoski

P.S. Just got another note from the author that he's sending me an autographed copy of his book!
Check out an interview with the author here:

D-day Fish Hatchery

Always fun. Every year is different. Coho salmon run - each one of those fish is worth about $300 at New Seasons.

Dragon Fruit

Looks like a flower to me.
Yummy with a little sugar on it.
