October 9, 2015 — I know some of you sped through all 25 links of Part I of this year's Trick-or-Treating the Web and have been patiently waiting for me to stop posting original content and get to more links. Well, today is that day, so ladies and gentlemen, start your your New Tabs.

  1. Here is a UK television series readers might find interesting. A team of three must complete 3 tasks with ever diminishing numbers. When a task is completed one of them is chosen to run down a road as fast as they can to escape German shepherds. How quickly they do the task determines their head start. It is, in turns, frightening and hilarious. It's called Release The Hounds and has become a Halloween season tradition. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3294702/
