Super and more than super

Halloween Black


(by Cora May Preble)
I'm not afraid on Halloween

Because my Mother said
I should not fear those funny things
But laugh at them instead.
For orange faces in the night
That stare with eyes so wide,
Are only pumpkins on a porch
With candlelight inside.

And there are no such things as ghosts . . .

Those figures shining white,
Are only children just like me
Wrapped up in sheets so tight.
I do not fear a single thing

On Halloween you see,
Because I know they really are
Not what they seem to be.
For ghosts and goblins, witches, spooks,
And other scary folks

We hear about on Halloween
Are really only jokes.

NRL Aussie Rugby Grand Final Match!

October is huge in the world of sports, and that includes Australia's annual NRL Grand Final rugby match, which was staged earlier this month.  

This year's blockbuster event featured the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Canterbury Sea Eagles in a match that, surprisingly, turned into a romp by the Rabbitohs.
South Sydney Rabbitohs 30, Canterbury Sea Eagles 6
And, one of the big factors in the Rabbitohs' win was their great superstar Sam Burgess, who was designated the Man of the Match.  

With his three brothers -- Luke, Tom, and George -- now on the Rabbitohs' roster with him, are the Rabbitohs destiny-bound?
