It's blog-entry Saturday, but it's also St. Patrick's Day and America loves Her Irish!!! I thought I'd share the top 5 places I'd most love to investigate in Ireland. As the Irish live with all they have, I can imagine they haunt with the same gusto!

We call them Yowie, the Bigfoot-like beings of Australia. The Native Aborigines have carried legends of them in their oral traditions. These people were described as hairy, with thick brows, sunken eyes, flat noses, and big lips. Rather reminds me of another South Pacificer -
Today's citizens of the country report encountering them as well. Here are just some reports -

They come and go like it's a bus station.
I hear people often talk about issues with transient hauntings. They might have lived there a long time and never run into problems, then BOOM! Or, they had some haunting problems in the kitchen with a little girl's voice and then later in the bedroom felt a male presence who came and then went after a week's time. The types and locations, as well as time periods shift. Let's look at some possible types and explanations -

After 3-1/2 years of reporting ongoing studies in a Southern urban park area, the Urban Sasquatch researcher has decided to end studies there and move on to other priorities. He will be back to report on some of his earlier work that he wanted to share for other insights into the ways of the Tall Ones.
I want to thank him for amazing documentation and insights, experimental methods and thorough field notes. His body of work in the field for almost two decades has been truly impressive. I cannot wait for him to share more with us.
I am reposting the beginning episode in the series - "What is Urban Sasquatch?"

Having several decades of dealing with the unknown, people often ask me the scariest places I've been, but today I'm going to share the top 5 scariest places I've ever slept (or tried to sleep). They don't necessarily have to do with ghosts.

I have dealt with a wide arena of investigators of many studies from ancient mysteries to Bigfoot, ghosts to UFOs. As most of what we study is up for conjecture, so are the outcomes. Ghosts could be good or bad, they could be spirits of the dead or something in the natural world, could be made up by our minds or something other dimensional. With this many possibilities, you can see why it's hard to tell whether to fear it or what to fear.

Hollow Earth concept is one that was born out of some musings in the past about whether the earth might contain pockets of life we don't know about on the surface, or perhaps an entire world within. There are legends of this from around the world which makes it an interesting subject to study.

My career is based in the oil and gas industry in the brokerage arena, something I'm extremely passionate about. There is something about knowing you are a cog in the wheel that keeps people driving to Grandma's, packaging goods, flying to other countries, and bringing goods to store shelves is a very rewarding calling.
My friend and mentor who brought me into the industry, also brought with him some stories of encounters with the Tall Ones, either on leases or trekking to and from in the wee hours.
Like forest rangers, park officials, police, and others who have regular time outdoors at all hours, those who manage oil leases often report encounters. Let's look at some -
The American South has a delicious combination of manners and grace, grit and strength, blood, sweat and tears. It feeds America, provides gas and oil, tempts us with endless coastlines, swamps, amazing cuisine, and hospitality. It's seen wars, slavery, segregation, immigrants, alligators, poisonous snakes, yellow fever, yet it stands proud.
The South also lends itself to some of the best horror plots, characters, and locations. It touts some of the creepiest urban legends and haunted locations. The people are a combination of sassy, strong and, as my mom would phrase it, "so sweet, I could eat you with a spoon!"
Let's take a look at what lurks in the South that makes it a horror influence like no other -

I grew up with the legends of Braddock's Gold, payroll for soldiers, supposedly stuffed into two cannons and buried. I spent an entire summer digging through Revolutionary War journals to find the "50 paces east of an oak tree," clue. That kept me going most summers of my childhood. So, I was thrilled to see History Channel's newest brilliant programming (I love this channel!!!)

Scary is easy to find. It presents itself with light and dark, odd angles, and looming images taken from below, sometimes just cropped parts of a scene are scary, and black and white always works, but how else can you get spooky photos? Let me give some suggestions -

Chimeras: Animal/man hybrids. What kind of conclusions can we make about such things if they truly exist? Well, knowing that humans and animals cannot mate and create offspring, there's only one option - DNA manipulation. If they do not truly exist, then they are an amazing human fantasy so deeply rooted, it has been in art for and mythology for thousands of years, on cave drawings, on heiroglyphs in Egypt and Greek stories.
