Carla, who's lookin' at corn husks??  Geesh, that video was quite "eye-popping"!! The scream guy bothered me, I almost felt a sense of vertigo.

When I lived in Portland oh-so-many years ago, I lived in Westmoreland, right up from Reed College. There was a fierce competition every year from two households that worked really hard to be the SCARIEST house. It was so cool! I am sure they still do it. Dry ice, live mummies, EXCELLENT FEAR FACTOR.

Carla - The corn maze always freaked me out especially as a kid.  Felt like I was in a Twilight Zone episode.  No thanks!  The rest looks really cool though!
