The Full Suburban: Classy decor or murder house for Halloween?

Hang on to your witch hats, everyone, because we’re midway through October, and the Ditto party train is full speed ahead until spring.

I love fall, but with its advent is ushered in a relentless eight months straight of holidays and birthdays in our family with their accompanying decorations, gifts and expectations.

I feel weary just thinking about it. First, there’s Halloween, then two birthdays less than a week later. Thanksgiving rolls around with its do-gooding and overeating, and then we celebrate our anniversary, Christmas, New Year’s and a birthday all in the span of about two weeks.

From there, it’s a steady march of almost biweekly celebrations: Valentine’s Day, birthday, St. Patrick’s Day, birthday, Easter, birthday, birthday. By the time June rolls around, I am leaping with joy on the graves of holiday decorations past relishing the coming four months with relatively little to celebrate. That sounds bad; I promise, I’m not a horrible person.

I go all-out for Christmas: hand-stitched stockings, a 12-foot Christmas tree, wreaths, garlands, nativities and construction paper Santas collected throughout my kids’ 12 years and counting in the public school system. Christmas is a holiday I can really sink my teeth into, you know? But Valentine’s Day? St. Patrick’s Day? Bah humbug.

More specifically, though, I have disappointed my kids for years with my lack of effort in the Halloween decorating department. My style is more “tasteful autumn vignette” and less “murder house,” and they don’t seem to appreciate that at all. “This is it?” they’ll blandly ask when they come home to find I’ve put up our decorations for the holiday.

“What do you mean, ‘This is it’?” I’ll say defensively, gesturing grandly at the four or five doodads I’ve scattered throughout the room. “Look at the giant velveteen spider that appears to

The 2021 Acura MDX’s Luxed-Up Interior Teased Before the Full Unveil

Despite the fact that its exterior design likely leaked earlier this year, we recently got our first teaser for the upcoming Acura MDX Prototype. It looks longer, leaner, and sharper than ever before. Now we’re being treated to a look at the MDX Prototype’s new interior, and the striking new design is clearly a shot at the big luxury brands.

2022 Acura MDX Interior 3

The most obvious changes are the brand new driver’s area, the addition of a fully digital driver’s display that the brand is calling the Acura Precision Cockpit, and a brand new central tunnel that contains a drive mode selector much like the one found in the NSX supercar. Another massive screen sits atop the dashboard, revealing a reworked infotainment system that’s more elegant than before.

Other photos reveal the new look to the seats. There’s now more detailing in the way of contrasting stitching and piping, as well as intricate quilting. It also looks like there are tiny holes for seat ventilation, too. The leather with the contrasting piping continues into the second (and perhaps even the third) row of the new MDX.

Lastly there’s a look at a brand new, 25-speaker ELS Studio 3D audio system. It features LED lights behind the speaker grilles, similar to the high-end systems from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. All in all, it looks like the MDX is going seriously upmarket, signaling Acura’s ambition to double down on both luxury and performance. The new MDX Prototype will be fully unveiled on October 14th, so stay tuned for everything you need to know about the next big SUV from Acura.

President Trump Coronavirus

  • President Trump confirmed on Thursday that he and First Lady Melania Trump were infected with the novel coronavirus.
  • The White House physician issued a letter to confirm the COVID-19 diagnosis, and to say the president and his wife are “both well” and plan to remain at home within the White House during the convalescence.
  • Experts say that the president’s age and weight are risk factors for COVID-19 complications, even though Trump might not be experiencing any symptoms at the onset of the illness.

In an unexpected turn of events, President Trump late Thursday night confirmed that he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19. The news followed a previous update that said one of Trump’s closest aides, Hope Hicks, tested positive for coronavirus. The president issued an initial statement after Trump confirmed the positive diagnosis, without disclosing whether the president or his wife were displaying symptoms. “The president and first lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence. Rest assured, I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments,” the statement read. Since then, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley released a full letter about Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis, which you can read below.

The letter maintains the same tone, saying that the president and first lady are both well and will stay in quarantine during their recovery:

The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.

The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country’s greatest medical professionals and institutions.

Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments.

Parents jumping on New World Little Garden bandwagon push full set price over $70

The New World Little Garden collection craze has taken root.

The supermarket chain began the six-week promotion on September 7, giving away vegetable, herb and flower seedling kits with every $40 spent – so you’d have to spend $960 over six weeks to collect them all.

The going rate for a full set of New World Little Garden seedlings at auction is currently about $70.

The going rate for a full set of New World Little Garden seedlings at auction is currently about $70.

Kiwi parents committed to collecting the full catalogue have adopted a ‘work smarter not harder’ approach and founded numerous community Facebook groups to trade and on-sell excess seedlings of one type in exchange for the plants they don’t have.

Trade Me spokesperson Millie Silvester said the individual seedlings and sets are selling for “big bucks” online.

“There is currently a full set of Little Garden seed pots onsite with a leading bid of $67.80,” she said. 138 people have saved the auction to their watchlist and it’s not due to close for another two days.

Just after New World launched Little Garden people began to search for the various seedlings in online marketplaces.

Last week, a full set of Little Garden seedlings sold for $72 after racking up almost 8,000 views. Interest in the promotion seems to be gaining momentum.

“In the last seven days we’ve seen 3,000 searches for Little Garden, that’s up 76 per cent on the week prior,” said Silvester.

“We typically see the number of listings for these items surge each time New
