The Pumpkin Exploded
Exploding Pumpkins can smear your face?
Many thousands of years ago when the Great Cedar stood 100 feet tall shining into the face of the sun. First man was given a seed to grow by the raven and talked into planting the seed along the great divide we now call the Mountains of Mankind.
That was the beginning?
Or was it?

The Exploding Pumpkin?
As told by Wha-O-Chee
Raven was created in the beginning and right after First Man but before the rib was removed where woman came from to keep man at peace.
Raven was as black as the midnight without the moon in the sky! And, was a tale teller who had few concerns for Mother Earth and the things of the Creator. Some say even today that Raven was the the one that led the snake to try biting the Nation in years later to yet arrive.
First Man was walking among the Great Cedars and continuing to name all the creatures still with out names granted by the Creator. When he spied Raven sitting in a dried out berry bush.
Raven called out to man: Hey! Are you hungry?
Man replied: Food is the needed for life! So yes I am hungry.
Raven said: I found a unknown seed and I will teach you to plant it and reap the harvest if you say to me "I want it!" For you must choose with your own will to do a thing upon Mother Earth for not even I the Raven can tell you what to do.
This was the foundation where it still stands: That no man may tell another man what to do, but can give an opinion of advice. This is true yet today with all Warriors!
First Man looked at Raven and said: I want it!
Immediately Raven reached with his beak and plucked a whitish seed that had a hard line run all around it and dropped it into the hand of First Man. And went on the Raven: Now you have my seed and go forth and plant it under the shade of the Great Ceder and cover it with wet moss. You will in two moons have a beautiful orange surprise and you may eat it.
First man took the seed and did exactly what Raven told him to do.
Two and 3/4 moons later as First Man went back to the shade of the Great Cedar to see what could be seen for he had now finished naming all the rest of the animals. He saw great vines with bright orange giant fruits. First he tried picking up one of the largest only to discover it was far to heavy for him to lift. He then settled on a smaller one he could carry to his Tepee.
Fist man was excited over this new food and hurried to decide how to cook it!
Into his fire pit a flame he placed the orange delight and sat and watched the flame!
First man knew when he cooked meat to allow it to turn color and this thing must he do the same. He sat and watched.
After much time watching and seeing the colors change it exploded all over his face.
In flew Raven and said: This you have done! The pumpkins are in the patch and you have let out the seed and it will go forth around the earth and when in a fire shall explode in the face. You have loosed my seed upon the Earth.
First man cried for he knew he had done a wrong upon the Creator and Mother Earth.
Mother Earth saw this and cried!
Creator heard the cries and spoke his Word. First man cut the orange things with faces and Raven shall loose what he desired: But if you do not it shall explode back unto all mankind. Moreover, unto you I also make it a food after you have cut it into pieces and removed the rind which is the power of the Raven: But, you loosed the pumpkins and they shall flourish.

Halloween and the Native People
By storyteller Annlee (( Copy Protected Story ))
Long long ago along the two rivers and the clouded
falls, and as far as stories have been told at the fire by the elders.
A long, time ago the human people believed that evil spirits and demons caused destruction and misfortune. Like the crazy crow or the all seeing Owl.
One legend says that near the fall when people are celebrating the hunting festival many jealous ghosts kept on trying to trick mortal humans by letting them in by the fire.
With promises of great herds and deer without numbers,
And the human people started to believe the spirits
A wise and very old respected medicine man brought to the human people furs of the fox, and furs of the racoon and the bear, and explained if they often wore masks of these and if they went out after dark to keep from being recognized by the ghosts they would be protected by the Heart of the Buffalo.
Throughout parts of the Nation the word went forth. And, the weary warrior's carrying the tale were like the poor because they were outside their tribes and clan, and would go from teepee to teepee begging for flat cakes or sweet berries.
A long time ago, was when the human people wore masks whenever diseases and disaster or famine struck. They believe that their masks would scare away the cause of the bad things. As the tale from the beginning was told and retold around the Great Fires as the Winter's approach started to fill the air with crispy winds.
Then after many moons even the young human children dressed up to scare the Spirits....
In the new country called the New World is where, the human being children would gather to the wooden log homes where the friendly woman would give candy, cookies and apples to the adorned human children in exchange for promises of no naughty tricks or mischief which in the air?
Even more stories were told about the human being.
Much later, as the country grew and the human beings declined: The children of the wooden houses began to dress up but did not have the animal skins of the human people.
Where it began that, they started to made their own,
And many could not sew well? There by came the costumes of rags and strange things.
To this day we see the people of the wooden houses claim it their idea!
But we human beings know the story told!
May you all enjoy the above:

Halloween at Your House?
Old Man vs Giant Squid
A tale told when Squidoo still existed? Now story is told on a hub!
No one remembers when the old man went down to the dock to fish in the Squidoo Ocean fishing that evening before the midnight arrival of Halloween. But some say the fault was his alone for he wanted to take on a Giant Squid?
The Squidoo Ocean was as green as the hills of Dover and the moon lit the still waters as not a wisp of wind was blowing. The old man could see far into the Squidoo Ocean and saw the gigantic tentacles lifting from the waters and playing with the sea.
He baited his big hook with little tid-bits that some say a Giant Squid simply cannot resist. Into the green Squidoo Ocean he threw his line and hook and bait as far out from the dock you see?
An eerie stillness came over the waters as clouds began to form. The water foamed where the Giant Squid was playing! The old man moved his line ever closer you see. His hands were knurled from years of pulling in his catch and scars from the razor sharp knifes used to clean and prepare the meat for dinner.
Some say the Old Man never saw the clouds change nor heard the winds cry for his hearing was not as good as it once was before World War Three.
Far to the left and about Â¼ mile back the lines were close to the Giant Squid a playing. Old Man watched as the Giant Squid snapped the bait and lines went taught and the fight was taking place. Man against Nature!
The biggest-baddest Giant Squid in all of Squidoo Ocean was on the line and tentacles cracking the green waters as foam began to fly. Old Man had hooked the Giant Squid of legend that drew ships to his belly and sailors to their watery graves for time after time. Tentacles 200 feet long were used to wrap a ship as the beak which was 5 feet in nature ripped the wood ships apart as they sailed the green colored Squidoo Ocean trying to make a mark upon the sea. They say ten thousand sailors had seen their day?
It was now Old Man's turn to play! He pulled and pulled you see at a line like a rope in size and eyes deep green kept watch as the biggest-baddest Giant Squid raced away.
Old Man was not so tall and smaller than one might think? He stood not over 5 foot tall, but with arms as strong as steel from years of fishing the green Squidoo Ocean.
The battle raged! Clearly, Old Man had taken upon his flight to much Giant Squid this eerie still calm night? Giant Squid it appeared was going to have yet another sailor to eat you see.
The winds cried louder and the clouds changed to forms. The ocean foamed as tentacles reached out to end the battle of Nature and an Old Man of the sea.
One could see the sneaky smile of the Giant Squid as it knew the end was near for the Old Man and it's eyes saw the beak reward and meal closer and closer it swam now not away but came forth right after the Old Man of the Sea.
It was near midnight and at the stroke of twelve arrived Halloween upon the green Squidoo Ocean. On raged the battle and Old Man was loosing the fight for now his life? For the biggest-baddest Giant Squid was winning.
The Old Man never saw as ten thousand souls arose at the stroke of Halloween and revenge was their goal and the ending of a rein? They all grabbed the biggest-baddest Giant Squid and held it in the air until Hallows Death appeared because it could no longer breathe. Limp to the line it fell and Old Man now saw and heard: "Fishing on Halloween can be one's downfall" said ten thousand sailor friends.

Making a foam is simple!
If you have fountains or water displays add these items, and the foam begins. It is safe and we use it to clean the pumps and system and close down the fountains after Halloween. We have even used it to clean and close up in ground pools after Halloween of course? Double the formula for an in ground pool and it is fun to swim and play in! LOL
