Happy Halloween

A frame "house" lit up with several thousand jack-o-lanterns
to raise money for Camp Sunshine-click
  Well there you are, one of several of these pumpkin events held each year in Maine.  Camp Sunshine is a summer camp for seriously ill children.  In Bangor lanterns are lit to raise funds for United Cerebral Palsy, others take place in a couple of other towns.
  Maine still has several thousand homes without power (22,000) but we got off easy compared to states to our south.  Yes, we had flooding, high winds and coastal damage but in the grand scheme of things 'easy' is the word that fits.
