jack-o'-lantern is a carved pumpkin, or turnip, associated chiefly with the holiday of Halloween, and was named after the phenomenon of strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. In a jack-o'-lantern, the top is cut off to form a lid, and the inside flesh then scooped out; an image, usually a monstrous face, is carved out of the pumpkin's rind to expose the hollow interior. To create the lantern effect, a light source is placed within before the lid is closed. This is traditionally a flame or electric candle, though pumpkin lights featuring various colors and flickering effects are also marketed specifically for this purpose. It is common to see jack-o'-lanterns on doorsteps and otherwise used as decorations during Halloween.

                               Oh!—fruit loved of boyhood!—the old days recalling,
                               When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
                               When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
                              Glaring out throught the dark with a candle within!

Samara: My favorite horror movie

It was a scary night and I was with my friends.We went to the Video land and we rented a horror story which was called Samara.When we went to my home, we watched the movie.In the movie Samara was a child and she was lived with her mother in a village.One night her mother took her and she threw her into a big and long well.Since that day Samara was a ghost and all the nights she went out of the well.All the people of the village got scared.

Twenty years later this village was destroyed and in this point a big city was built.The place where the well of Samara was was under of a house.In the house a big family lived.Samara was angry with the family.Samara wanted to kill all the family.At first, the family got scared because  she started to turn on and off the lights. One day Samara was on the TV but the family didn't understand it.They thought it was a trailer but suddenly Samara broke the TV and she killed the father.Then she disappeared .The family was cried for days.Another day Samara appeared in front of the family and she killed one of the three children.

Finally the family got angry and they were waiting for Samara.Suddenly she appeared. The family was ready that time. Samara she went to kill the mother but the mother took quickly a knife and she threw it to Samara and she died.That's all about my favorite horror movie.

Dear Sir/Madam                                                  

I bought the game one week ago and I'm very disappointed because the game has three problems.

First of all,my game always get stuck and I can't play it. Next,the one of two CDs can't play because it has a big scratch. Finally,when I played the CD,I saw it had 3 levels and not 4 levels,as the advertisement says.

Could you please send me a new game with 4 levels or a refund?

I look forward to your reply.

                                                                              Yours faithfully

Cool robots

Hi. I read some articles at the weekend and at the week. The best article, which I read it was <Cool Japanese robots>. I was impressed with that because the giant T-Rex because you can move it with your mobile phone and the robot which knows every sign language! Also the robot which you can play table-tennis!!
This proves Japanese have the greatest technology in the world!!!!!!!

Amazing kid

I think most usefulI and creative invention was underwater walking talking.I will have this invention.Now I like to make model cars.

Amazing Kids!

I think, the best invention is Ritcie's Stachowski's because the underwater walkie-talkies are difficult for a kid to think of and invent. This is the most creative idea because now all the divers use them.
I haven't got any ideas for now but in the future I think I will have good and creative ideas!!!!
