of ghoulies and ghosties and long legged beasties…

A selection of stuff that may or may not tickle your fancy this October 31st

Living close to Sutton Hoo I have come to enjoy the magnificence and importance of this story.

The British Library are hosting two productions of the story as part of their Anglo Saxon season.

Then we must, of course, include Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.  Decide whether you want trick or treat

And just to remind us that we learn something everyday,  the rest of the verse from the title.

From ghoulies and ghosties and long legged beasties

And things that go bump in the night

Good Lord protect us.

I have always credited this as a Scottish prayer, however from research, it is possible that it might have a wider origin. If this kind of thing fascinates you, click on the picture to follow the link.

Seriously, we all fight our own demons so I’ve included this in dedication to a great performer with a haunting, wonderful voice.


For all the little goblins, monsters and other noble characters out on the town tonight have fun and stay safe.
