Mark your calendar for May 31-June 2, 2019! The Eastern PA Bigfoot Camping Adventure is happening!
**TICKETS GO ON SALE TOMORROW**
Special guests, workshops, vendors, and loads of outdoor fun. I will move mountains to try and be at this event. It looks like a blast. I wish we had this much fun in the west!
Victorian era went nuts with the new technology of photography and especially special effects. For some macabre reason, they enjoyed documenting medical "freaks," costumed people in weird situations, postmortem pictures of their dead, a weird fad of headless photos and supposed ghost pics.
LINK: “(13) And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, (14) Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. (15) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. (16) And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.” (Revelation 9:13-16)
There is a legend that four fallen angels (four horsemen of the apocalypse) are imprisoned in the Euphrates, some say under Haditha Dam and that guards have gone mad watching them.

Greenland, a relatively inhospitable location that even Vikings weren't sure about remaining in, is a geological wonder and a place of immense beauty and danger. This iceberg got a little too close. One complete break of its fissures and a tidal wave would be the result. Just one of many mysteries and dynamics that make Greenland fascinating.

I have thousands of bits of evidence about giants and it's an overwhelming task, but I want them documented, so I will be doing a giant a day hopefully and it may take me years to show them all at that rate. If you want more giant info, hit he "giants" tab at the top of the blog.
This one from Lovelock Cave in Nevada was 31" tall. To put that in perspective, I am 5'8" tall and my skull is 10" tall.

On an uninhabited inhospitable island in Russian waters only 900 km from the North Pole, are some very strange huge round spheres of stone. Josef Franz Land Island is a very curious place. Eighty five percent of the island is glacial year-round.

In blogging heydays, Dale the Doll became my sidekick by being, well, the thing that most creeped out my readers. Ventriloquist dolls are spooky but giving him a voice and a personality made him a bit of a celeb. Now, I have packed him and his belongings up in a box en route to his new "yuman" (how he says "human").
Let's review the life and times of Dale the Doll....

"Happy birthday! Sending you a premature gift" (my birthday is September 17th). And so, on August 25th, a large well-padded box arrived with a wee Shirley Temple doll. She is one of my favorites as a kid with the red curly locks and singing and dancing. But, this Shirley was a few shades of wrong. Let's begin the ongoing study of a supposedly haunted doll sent to me by a beloved and methodical researcher -

Don has been a researcher for as much as six decades. He has honed his skills as a tracker and a hunter, a survivalist, and an observer of nature and its habits and quirks. These skills have kept him alive and able to continue his hungry thirst for knowledge about the world and how it works. Upon occasion, those well-honed instincts get his spidey senses active. "The Roofer" is one such case.

With autumn marching toward us, it is in the human DNA to begin to imagine such things as twisted trees bared of their falling leaves and forests that take on a dark underworld feel.
But, what is it that we fear in these scary forests? Perhaps, it's just the secrets they keep. Let's see which of these you'd dare to encounter....

Ancient mummies were found with blond hair on Catalina Island and long black hair in other parts of the country, but the red-haired ones piqued curiosity because they were found all over the country and sometimes associated with being, well, generally cranky, giant, and troublesome like the cannabilistic ones in Nevada associated with the Lovelock Cave. Supposedly, samples taken from some in Florida showed them to be of Northern European origin. As a Thorvaldsen of Norway and Eng of Lapland, I suspect my ancestors were all over the place. They have the travel bug. Were they giant? Well, as a 5'8" woman in a family of 5'2" women, perhaps?

Ah, Spirit Halloween shop - the sure sign that we are all anxiously awaiting the cooler, darker, spookier season. I just went through it today and got a look at the trends for 2018 and I was double thumbs up pleased!
When I started doing some research into ancient giant skeletons found in caves and those who have theories of a hollow earth and societies living deep in the earth through cave systems, I began to have a lot of questions about what else might be happening caves. Then, I started discovering more and more cases of Lizardmen, Bat-women and all kinds of wild beings. Let's cover some of these freaking scary cases -

The season is coming and it's time to get in the mood for Halloween. So, why not create a haunted house in your home and sit back and enjoy the ambiance of a scary atmosphere? I'm going to share some simple ploys to use white sheets to make it unsettling -

The Atacama Desert in South America is primarily in Chile. It is the driest desert in the world and has salt lakes, sand, and ancient lava. Rainfall is less than an inch a year. For such a barren place, it has some unusual ancient history and the focus of much mining.

Upon occasion I see a horror movie that gives me hope. The hope is that there are developing horror movie directors to keep the genre alive. Any of us in our middle years know that rock music seems to have died. We never imagined that happening. Well, there is a fear that horror movies had their heyday, but no more. Let's talk today about "The Boy" and why the director gives me hope.

Cemeteries are the most beautiful and peaceful parks and memorials. A walk among the rows of headstones under the shady trees brings a sense of quiet and introspection. Sometimes, however, cemetery art takes on a sinister tone as weather and aging can make even the happiest sculpture twisted and creepy. Other art, designed to take on gothic and anguished proportions, becomes something quite frightening. Let's look at what can happen to the art when placed in a peaceful cemetery.

I grew up with two very divergent influences: "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and "Charlie's Angels." Both exhibited intelligence, diligence, and bravery, but one was a bit bumbling and a loner, the other was a neat sexy glamour team. And somehow, forever, I've been embracing both.

I was introduced to a research group based on my focus on language/communication and psychic pathways. That's how I started studying the Tall Ones and then quickly went into more arenas like guidelines for habituation and interaction and eventually the search for their ancestors/lineage (Link to those findings).
As I had some time to focus on any signs of psychic skills, I have some input to share here today -

It's August and by now I'm well and fully one foot into autumn and another foot creeping toward Halloween. I like to have a weekend where I put on the 5 basic horror movies that I love to watch around Halloween time just to hear the music and see some dark and spooky places. Here's what I am darkening my windows to watch this weekend -
