We live in a neighbourhood with lots of schools and children - we are always inundated with kids and never have enough. It really is a fun time for everyone!!!

I am in Des Moines. They trick-or-treat on “Beggers Night” (Oct. 30). I was alone so didn’t get any candy because right now ir’s too hard to get up to answer the door!

It's hard to feel good about a body that's in the middle of a wear-and-tear breakdown and the losing of mobility despite exercising and moving as much as possible.

I agree with Marj. I grew up in the city and loved it but now I live in the country on 20 acres. BUT I would not want to bring up my boys here if they were young again. Too lonely for kids. I also agree with Marj that I am glad I don't have young children anymore!

There are positives and negatives to each one. I guess it depends on where the parents are happiest, that happiness will rub off. I can't imagine living anywhere but a suburb of a large city. One of my boys chose a small town, one is here nearby, two like it closer to the big city.

Do you think it is better to raise teenagers in a large city, a small city, a small town, or the country? And why.?

I feel a small city is best because the teens are better able to learn to get along with many different people and will make college or working easier because they will have dealt with lots of different people and situations.

Cheesecake...... yes! But it’s been a long time. I used to make a killer tofu cheesecake when I was a vegetarian. Fooled everyone because they couldn’t tell the difference.

Yes I like pumpkin cheesecake and just about any other kind of cheesecake for that matter. However, my fav is a fruit-covered German cheesecake which is lighter than it's North American cousin (made with quark, a fresh unaged cheese popular in Germany and other European countries, instead of cream cheese).

My favs are my oldies: 50's, 60's, 70's and some 80's, but enjoy different genres as well - don't like rap and progressive jazz.

My fav pizza (thin-crust) toppings are not traditional: creamy pesto sauce, artichokes, chicken, onion and a bit of sun-dried tomato.

How do you handle those “robo” calls?

I tried to block them but that doesn’t help so I either don’t answer or hang up. It’s amazing how they can get numbers in my area code but often speak very poor English!
