Every day a child laughs 300 times a day and by the time we reach

adulthood, we laugh only 15. It's a shame, because a minute of

laughter equals 45 minutes of relaxation, laughter also

moves more than 400 muscles, laughing releases endorphins

the brain's natural sedative that achieves similar effects

those of an analgesic. Laughter also stimulates the spleen,

eliminates toxins, lubricates and cleanses the eyes, vibrates the

head clears your nose and ears, helps digestion and

reduces fatty acids ... So get ready to laugh as much as possible!

Bullying is no longer confined to the playground. It now can be piped into their homes via the Internet, onto the phones they carry in their pockets and magnified a thousand fold by social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

This constant harassment is called cyberbullying. The National Crime Prevention Council reports that 43 % of all teens in the U.S. have been subjected to it.

And, sadly, it has proven to be deadly.

Pumpkin sculptures of spooky scarecrows, frightening spiders, sneaky snakes, and more designed by artist Michael Natiello await discovery at every turn in the Everett Children Adventure Garden. Youngsters play inside a "gourd-geous" Pumpkin House, put on a scary show at the Pumpkin Puppet Theater, have a "hoot" finding out what owls eat by dissecting pellets, and look for wiggly worms under a rotting log. Kids of all ages are encouraged to wear scary costumes for daily parades through the Adventure Garden. Get your tickets.
