It's our favorite time of the year, when thoughts turn to trick-or-treating, daylight savings time (okay, not the shorter days, but the extra hour of sleep is nice), huge Thanksgiving dinners, fall movies, and leaves changing color. Daylight savings time for us is on October 31, How Stuff Works explains why seasons change, here's a NASA page about stargazing during the seasons and this is why leaves change color. And another kind of season(s): The Four Seasons restaurant, NYC's power dining spot.

Another thing we all to look forward to this fall: The Presidential election. We hope you're voting, and if you can, why not think about being a swing state volunteer? Two swing state resources: The Swing State Project blog and a swing State Project volunteer site.

And what's your favorite season?
