Halloween-flavored Google Doodle lets you be a witch

Today's Google Doodle offers visitors a chance to be a witch.

When you load the Google search page, you are greeted with a scary-looking witch reading a potions book.

When you click the "play" button you then get to cook up your own witch's brew by choosing a combination of ingredients to add to her cauldron.

The combination you choose determines what treat you get.

Choosing a skull and an apple sends you into a spooky forest with only a flashlight where you can search for green ghoulies.

Choosing the bone and skull reveals a fun coffin-themed three-card monty game.

There are several other combinations that reveal games and scenes from howling ghosts to creepy spiders.

Google Doodles are "fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists."

Officials with the 147th Attack Wing told Houston officials that no residents were in danger due to the crash.
  • That notice that you got right now, throw it in the trash.'  Those words, that every Fulton County homeowner wants to hear, come from Commission Vice-Chairman Bob Elis concerning the 2017 tax assessments.  The county commission, in a unanimous vote, approved a measure that corrects the 2017 tax assessments by using the 2016 tax rates.  The decision by the board does not affect commercial properties and homeowners who have made improvements to their homes will also see an increase.  The corrective measure was sponsored by Commissioners Ellis, John Eaves and Liz Hausmann.  'The system is broken,' Hausmann says. 'It's inherently broken.'  Commissioner Emma Darnell says in addition to fixing a problem, the vote also shows that the Fulton County government is willing to listen.  The new tax assessments will be completed within a few weeks and then be sent out to homeowners by August. Those homeowners can still appeal the assessment, if they so choose.   'You can still appeal,' Ellis says, 'but, as for the new digest, you'll probably like it a whole lot better than what you have right now.”
  • It was a rather pleasant spring and now the first summer month too has been cooler than normal. Hot weather has not lasted more than a couple or few days so far this year. It sure saves the lawn and bushes a lot of stress and saves the watering bill and the A/C bill, so I like it. But I am sure sun tanning fans are not thrilled. It still looks like from today past the 4th of July real hot weather will continue to be hard to come by. Then odds of some heat go up if the new Weekly European Model Ensemble run is right. 1-15 Day GFS Ensemble average temperature departure from normal: End of June-early July rainfall amounts GFS Ensemble and Euro Ensemble: Hope for some drying beyond the current wet spell:      European Model the week ending July 7th: Then the model suggests more upper-level ridging which would bring warmer and drier if correct. The week ending July 14th: The model projects not dry weather in Georgia but less wet to open the new month, as the bigger rains are projected to shift north of here. None-the-less, it looks like odds for rain will be above-normal right into the start of August. So no drought and no extreme heat here.

  • Shannen Doherty is loving her new, curly locks. >> Read more trending news In a sweet photo update with husband Kurt Iswarienko, Doherty showed off her new look as her hair grows back following months of cancer treatments. “I think my husband and I are morphing into each other,” she wrote with the hashtag #curlyhairdontcare in a post on Instagram. The photo shows the two on a trip in Tulum, Mexico. In April, the “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum announced she was in remission in an emotional Instagram post to fans. “Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment,” she wrote. “What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting.” She continued: “As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait.” Doherty chronicled her cancer battle on social media and shortly after her diagnosis, shared the heart wrenching moment she decided to cut her hair off with the help and support of her close friend, Anne Marie Kortright, and mother, Rosa.
  • At least three people are dead and several others wounded after a suicide car bomb blast at a police station in Somalia's capital, police said Thursday. The bomber was trying to drive into the police station's gate but detonated against the wall instead, Capt. Mohamed Hussein told The Associated Press. Ambulance sirens echoed across Mogadishu, with dozens of soldiers at the scene. The blast targeted Waberi district's police station on the busy Maka Almukarramah road, Col. Ahmed Warsame said. The Somalia-based al-Shabab extremist group often targets high-profile areas in Mogadishu. On Tuesday, at least 15 people were killed when a suicide car bomber posing as a milk delivery van detonated at a district headquarters in Mogadishu. Most of the victims were civilians. Al-Shabab claimed responsibility. The extremist group has vowed to step up attacks after the recently elected government launched a new military offensive against it. The group also faces a new military push from the United States after President Donald Trump approved expanded operations, including airstrikes. Al-Shabab last year became the deadliest Islamic extremist group in Africa, with more than 4,200 people killed in 2016, according to the Washington-based Africa Center for Strategic Studies.
