    Elfine was rescued. Henceforth, her life would be one of exquisite, sunny natural content. She would bear children and found a line of pleasant, ordinary English people who were blazing with poetry in their secret souls. All was as it should be.

    It was one of his disagreeable duties as a State psycho-analyst to remove the affections of his patients from the embarrassing objects upon which they were concentrated; and focus them, instead, upon himself. It was true that they did not remain focused there for long: as soon as he could he switched them on to something harmless, like chess or gardening.

    I might actually get brave enough to flatten my island to redo it the way I want it thanks to the update?

    I want a town center area so badly and it just doesn’t work with my current layout.

    #but I think I’ll actually want a little town area with the new items #a small market town surrounded by overgrown rural farms please #with bonus giant mushrooms because why not #there is a tomato duck and blue elephant roaming the island the mushrooms are the least of it

    Spooky Rural Things

    Hello, I've returned!

    I live in the middle of nowhere. Since Halloween is getting closer, I thought I should describe some things that could have spooky potential. Enjoy :]

    Keep in mind, these are things I have seen. Not everyone. My experiences do not encompass every rural person's experience, and are very clearly different than even my neighbors' views down the road.

    Lines of 30-60 ATVs travelling together. Now, they might be heading to some derby, but this is spooky season. Perhaps some people could go missing if they too owned an ATV, and the parade found them...

    Everyone gets very excited about tornadoes. It's just another storm, but a Big One. It's just fun, really.

    Regular weather here is just as crazy. You could start the week with an 80-degree-Fahrenheit forecast, and end with 40 degrees, a lot of snow, and maybe some flash flooding at the start of the weekend.

    Green eyes glowing in the dark. Deer, owls, rabbits- take your pick, but you could make it spooky if you wanted too.

    Abandoned, decaying barns and houses on the sides of the road. Time has not been kind to them. But one must wonder: What happened here? And will it happen again?

    Crickets and cicadas generally go silent before something big and/or bad happens (usually a big storm). Still, you could use so much symbolism for this.

    And speaking of noise, there are these huge flocks of birds (probably around 200+) that just appear in the morning. They are very loud. These birds usually cover the power lines, and hide in tall trees. Consider this a warning.

    Trucks parked silently, not running, in fields. Yes, it's hunting season, but they seem to be there for days at a time..

    The pipes emit a very shrill, ear-piercing sound whenever the air conditioning kicks on. It's quite painful. Use it.

    Fog or steam over the creeks, lakes/ponds, and rivers. It's beautiful, it's eerie, you don't know where it came from, and it could be the "spawn point" for whatever eldritch being you can conjure up. In all seriousness, though- fog from a river a mile away can reach the highway.

    Hallways with the lights off. It gets very creepy in long hallways, especially when you are alone, and something other than yourself makes a sound...

    Motion sensor lights turning on at night, but literally nothing is there to trigger them...

    Now we move on to the people I've seen.

    There are students that disappear for months at a time with little to no contact with anyone (usually because of a compromised immune system). You could go all out with this one, but let's be clear- DO NOT make fun of someone for being gone if they are legitimately sick.

    Junior high/middle school kids have been known to hide out in the small bathroom stalls, giggling and doing who knows what in there with the lights off. It's very creepy, with or without Halloween getting close. And there's like, 3 to 5 kids in that small stall. How? Why? Why not use the big stall in the first place? So many questions.

    One of my old teachers has a laugh almost identical to the Joker's. She is a really nice lady and excellent coach, but if you don't know her, or if it were dark... Yeah your blood would probably freeze up.

    There are some of us that are literally as cold as ice. I myself have hands to be described as "that of a dead body's". Really, it's a fact of life that some people are just cold, but for spookiness... Spice can be added in quite nicely.

    Not everyone knows everyone, I can almost guarantee it. It's a miracle if you can put names to faces in your own class or grade, let alone an entire town. It's taken years for people I've gone to school with for ages to realize I have at least one sibling.

    Ok, this got a bit long. And off topic on some points. But still, I think it should work as a qualifying "spooky season" post. If I think of more things, I'll try to add them on here. Feel free to comment any suggestions!

    Remember guys, you need to hydrate and take care of yourselves. Especially with Halloween coming up. Be careful.

    New Post has been published on https://notimundo.com.mx/guerrero/comienza-el-rastreo-de-caminos-rurales-en-el-municipio-de-la-union/

    Comienza el rastreo de caminos rurales en el municipio de La Unión
    La Unión de Isidoro Montes de Oca, Gro. octubre de 2021.-El presidente municipal Crescencio Reyes Torres, informó que ya comenzaron con el rastreo de los caminos rurales en diferentes puntos del  municipio unionense.
    Precisó que el miércoles inició el primer frente que comprende las comunidades de El Ranchito, Huicumo, La Noria y Huertecillas.
    Mientras que a más tardar este viernes, “estará llegando la maquinaria para comenzar el segundo frente que recorrerá lugares como: Feliciano, El Limón y La Estancia”.
    Finalmente, dijo que el martes “se contará con más equipo para un tercer frente que recorrerá la parte alta de Joluta, Magueyes y El Chamgungal. Una vez que concluyan esos puntos, la maquinaria se moverá a otras comunidades de La Unión como El Rincón y Lagunillas”.
    La intención es que los trabajos queden concluidos antes del 24 de diciembre de este año, cuando los caminos rurales presentan un incremento en la afluencia porque muchas personas acuden a visitar a sus familiares que viven en las comunidades.
    La temporada de lluvias de este año afectó prácticamente todos los caminos de La Unión, por ello  tomaron la desición de comenzar lo antes posible con los trabajos de mantenimiento de más de 300 kilómetros.

    10/15/21.

    Meritorio Records (Spain) might be the most international label we mention here. I mean, they support a lot of Australian music (Wurld Series, Stephen's Shore) but have begun to branch out with bands like semi trucks and Rural France (and Smokescreens).

    semi trucks (Los Angeles) sound like a cross between The Jesus and Mary Chain, Cindy, Galaxie 500, and The Pastels.

    As mentioned earlier, this is released by Meritorio Records (Madrid, Spain).

    I once saw a post where whenever Midwesterners see cows on a drive they all just go "Oh look, cows" which makes NO sense to me because Everytime my family sees a cow we just excitedly yell "Moo-Moos!!!" and admire them for as long as we can

    #i grew up in a rural suburban area #btw #we all just love cows

    “New Trial Ordered For Condemned Man,” Toronto Star. September 15, 1931. Page 19. ---- Defence Will Say Farm Hand Was Insane --- Chatham, Sept. 15. - The Crown last night rested its case against Thomas Cracknell, young Harwich township farm hand, charged with the murder of his wife on Nov. 4, 1930. The trial, which opened yesterday, is the second for the young farm hand, as he was found guilty and sentenced to hang by Mr. Justice Raney. The case was admitted to the Ontario court of appeal, however, when the minister of justice decided that the trial judge, had erred in his directions to the jury.

    The defence, it is reported, is endeavoring to prove insanity.

    R. V. Sinclair, K. C., is presenting. A. L. Hanna represents the accused.
