Relive Your Childhood Feelings of Wonder and Friendship



Friendships made in youth were based upon what "could be," "dreams," "whims," "opportunities," and figuring out the world together. Sometimes, we wanted to grow up too fast, dreaming of cars and careers and living on our own, and other times we were happy with age-appropriate milestones like adolescence, periods, and first kiss.

Snow Extremes: Cannibalism


Humans have an amazing desire to stay alive. We overcome living in the most extreme conditions. No more extreme condition is worse than being stranded in the snow. Here are a few cases from the past that make us wonder what we would do in such a situation....

Amazingly Embalmed Bodies!



Rosalia Lombardo, born in 1918 in Palermo, Italy only made it to the age of two, died of pneumonia in an era without antibiotics and tragic losses such as this were common. Her father, in his immense grief, approached an embalmer for help in preserving his little girl forever. The embalmer used methods that were unknown, but the results were so stunning that, to this day, her body is just magically alive looking. Hers was one of the last bodies added to the Capuchin Catacombs.

Gnome For the Holidays



Lawn gnomes are cheerful and yet...creepy. They are garden dwarfs whose origin was in 19th Century Germany. Even though they are best known as happy little garden statues that are protectors of our prize begonias and daisies, they are also considered the object of pranking or "gnoming" someone.

Alaska's Pyramid?


When we think of the great state of Alaska, we think about snow and streams with enormous salmon, great bears, and rising peaks. One thing that would not come to mind is an ancient pyramid. So, why are there claims that one exists there?

Paranormal Experiences in the Himalayas


Mt. Everest at 29,000 feet and other mountains in the Tibetan Plateau that tempt hikers to climb to their summits are also magnets for unexplained mysteries. The Himalayas are the tallest peaks in the world and growing a fraction of an inch each year. If para experiences occur rampantly in geologically active areas, then Tibet is surely one of the most spooky places in the world!

Southwestern Holidays

Tumbleweed Christmas Tree, Chandler, AZ

I've lived in the Southwestern US the majority of my life. You cry a little bit through summer and fall because it's, well, miserable weather. But, if you hold out, December opens up to be mild low 70s and 40s and 30s at night and you remember what is to love about this inhospitable place. Holidays here are different too. Some traditions are unusual and quirky which, for this geek, are just fine. Let me share some of the charm that is Southwestern Holiday Season.

Steampunk-Loving Movies


Steampunk is a style that borrows from the Victorian Era and revolution of the steam engine. It is in fashion, literature, art, lifestyles, and movies. Those who love that romantic time period and the gritty gadgetry and the rich fabrics, fancy clothing involved in turn-of-the-century, safari, and Egyptology will adore movies that exude that class. Here's a list of my favorites -

1967: Unprecedented Paranormal Year


I am going to propose something rather revolutionary and highly unusual. For some, you will shake your heads, for others, a light will turn on in your mind. I encourage you to take this concept and run with it. Much of what I have done in the field of paranormal is about the human catalyst/receiver/perceiver. This embodies that research.
