Here is the presentation on "The Facts and Fiction of Paranormal Investigation".  I was pleased that most knew the inaccuracy of the television shows for the most part, and happy to introduce folks to Dr. Andrew Nichols, an academic in parapsychology.

Full Corn Moon or Full Harvest Moon (Sept. 16): Marks when corn was supposed to be harvested by Native Americans. The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering (Farmer's Almanac).
