What to do next?

This post isn’t paranormal related, well maybe it might be because of all the unussual problems associated with it. I have been trying to sell a house and land that was left to me by a family member passing away. I have been through four lawyers who have just up and excused themselves from this case. Two family members whom were appointed executors of this case are now being uncooperative. My wife and I are are now having a very hard time because of this situation.

What would you, the reader, if you’ve experianced anything simular to this, do about this situation?

I am now in contact with yet another lawyer who is very interested in this case and is asking all the right questions. I suspect there is a sum of money in the inheratence that was never disclosed to me, but should have been by law, and just maybe a family member knows this and is trying to stall this case to get to it.

What do you think? Any input to this would be valued!

Paranormal goodies for sale

I decided to do something differant today…I decided to use a few differant ideas for paranormal related items and apply them to goodies we all either have or would like to have. One of them is a pretty cool mashup of pics I had made not long ago, one of a personal fav: Stonehenge. I used a cool Stonehenge pic with lighting in the background and applied it to a nice mug. The link is below if you’re interested in getting one. The other is a Fox Mulder inspired theme. It’s a pretty neat magnet with a UFO capture with some appropriate wording to it. You can see both on the same page.

I’ll be adding more product ideas to be available on the same site. Just an idea I thought I’d put in motion 😉

14 million year-old lost world found in Antarctica

The world’s not flat and by now I am hoping that many people are starting to figure out that our past has quite a few hidden surprises when it comes to ancient civilizations. From a post made at Mysterytopia.com:

A lost world has been found in Antarctica, preserved just the way it was when it was frozen in time some 14 million years ago. The fossils of plants and animals high in the mountains is an extremely rare find in the continent, one that also gives a glimpse of a what could be there in a century or two as the planet warms. A team working in an ice-free region has discovered the trove of ancient life in what must have been the last traces of tundra on the interior of the southernmost continent before temperatures began to drop relentlessly.An abrupt and dramatic climate cooling of 8°C in 200,000 years forced the extinction of tundra plants and insects and brought interior Antarctica into a perpetual deep-freeze from which it has never emerged, though may do again as a result of climate change. An international team led by Prof David Marchant, at Boston University and Profs Allan Ashworth and Adam Lewis, at North Dakota State University, combined evidence from glaciers, from the preserved ecology, volcanic ashes and modelling to reveal the full extent of the big freeze in a part of Antarctica called the Dry Valleys. The new insight in the understanding of Antarctica’s climatic history, which saw it change from a climate like that of South Georgia to one similar to that seen today in Mars, is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “We’ve documented the timing and the magnitude of a tremendous change in Antarctic climate,” said Prof Marchant. “The fossil finds allow us to examine Antarctica as it existed just prior to climate cooling at 13.

9 million years ago. It is a unique window into the past. To study these deposits is akin to strolling across the Dry Valleys 14.1 million years ago.” The discovery of lake deposits with perfectly preserved fossils of mosses, diatoms and minute crustacea called ostracods is particularly exciting, noted Prof Lewis. “They are the first to be found even though scientific expeditions have been visiting the Dry Valleys since their discovery during the first Scott expedition in 1902-1903,” he said.

If you recall the finding long ago of a map that was supposed to have outlined landmasses and coastlines of the North Pole and so on, that was not supposed to have been known about due to the ice formations and the sheer age alone…

In 1929, a group of historians found an amazing map drawn on a gazelle skin.
Research showed that it was a genuine document drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, a famous admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century.
His passion was cartography. His high rank within the Turkish navy allowed him to have a privileged access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople.
The Turkish admiral admits in a series of notes on the map that he compiled and copied the data from a large number of source maps, some of which dated back to the fourth century BC or earlier.

The Piri Reis map shows the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America, and the northern coast of Antarctica. The northern coastline of Antarctica is perfectly detailed. The most puzzling however is not so much how Piri Reis managed to draw such an accurate map of the Antarctic region 300 years before it was discovered, but that the map shows the coastline under the ice. Geological evidence confirms that the latest date Queen Maud Land could have been charted in an ice-free state is 4000 BC

Signs of a haunting

Here’s a pretty handy list of signs of a haunting at your house etc., I felt this list needed to be posted here (also because of what my wife and I are going through at our own house). Most of these are pretty obvious, but some of these may apply to your situation.

Signs your house might be haunted:

  • Unexplained noises – footsteps; knocks, banging, rapping; scratching sounds; sounds of something being dropped. Sometimes these noises can be subtle and other times they can be quite loud.
  • Doors, cabinets and cupboards opening and closing – most often, these phenomena are not seen directly. The experiencer either hears the distinct sounds of the doors opening and closing (homeowners get to know quite well the distinctive sounds their houses make) or the experiencer will return to a room to find a door open or closed when they are certain that it was left in the opposite position. Sometimes furniture, like kitchen chairs, are perceived to have been moved. Very rarely will the experiencer actually witness the phenomenon taking place.
  • Lights turning off and on – likewise, these events are seldom seen actually occurring, but the lights are switched on or off when the experiencer knows they were not left that way. This can also happen with TVs, radios and other electrically powered items.
  • Items disappearing and reappearing – this phenomenon, which we have dubbed “the DOPler Effect” (DOP = Disappearing Object Phenomenon), has been examined in the article “The DOPler Effect.” Others have called this “the borrowers” phenomenon, and it’s the familiar experience of not being able to find a regularly used item – say, your set of car keys – which you believe you placed in a spot you routinely place them. But they’re gone and you look high and low for them with no success. Some time later, the keys are found – in exactly the place you normally put them. It’s as if the object was borrowed by someone or something for a short time, then returned. Sometimes they are not returned for days or even weeks, but when they are, it’s in an obvious place that could not have been missed by even a casual search.
  • Unexplained shadows – the sighting of fleeting shapes and shadows, usually seen out of the corner of the eye. This phenomenon has also been discussed in some detail in “Shadow People.” Many times, the shadows have vaguely human forms, while other times they are less distinguishable or smaller.
  • Strange animal behavior – a dog, cat or other pet behaves strangely. Dogs may bark at something unseen, cower without apparent reason or refuse to enter a room they normally do. Cats may seem to be “watching” something cross a room. Animals have sharper senses than humans, and many researchers think their psychic abilities might be more finely tuned also.
  • Feelings of being watched – this is not an uncommon feeling and can be attributed to many things, but it could have a paranormal source if the feeling consistently occurs in a particular part of the house at a particular time.
  • Mild psychokinetic phenomena – hearing a door open or close is one thing. Actually seeing it happen is quite another. Similarly, actually seeing a light go on or off by itself is greater proof that something unexplained is happening. Do you see the TV or radio turn on? Or perhaps you’re present when a child’s powered toy begins to operate on its own. Doors and windows are locked or unlocked. Some people report that when they are in bed they can feel and/or hear something sitting on the bed.
  • Feelings of being touched – the feeling of being watched is one thing, and actually feeling like you are being touched is quite another. Some people feel something brush past them, something touching their hair or “a hand” on the shoulder. Some feel a gentle poke, push or nudge.
  • Cries and whispers – on occasion, muffled voices, whispering and crying can be heard. Sometimes it’s music from some unknown source. People hear their names being said. This phenomenon, as is true for the one above, gains more credibility if more than one person hears or sees the same thing at the same time.
  • Cold or hot spots – cold spots are classic haunting symptoms, but any instance of a noticeable variance in temperature without a discernable cause could be evidence.
  • Unexplained smells – the distinct fragrance of a perfume or cologne that you do not have in your house. This phenomenon comes and goes without any apparent cause and may accompany other phenomena, such as shadows, voices or psychokinetic phenomena. Foul odors can happen in the same way.

Rarer still are more extreme phenomena, some of which have been called poltergeist phenomena, and can be quite strong evidence of a true haunting:

  • Moving or levitating objects (severe psychokinetic phenomena) – dinner plates sliding across the table; pictures flying off walls; doors slamming shut with great force; furniture sliding across the floor.
  • Physical assault – scratches, slaps and hard shoves. This kind of personal assault is extremely rare, but obviously highly disturbing.
  • Other physical evidence – unexplained writing on paper or walls; hand prints and footprints.
  • Apparitions – physical manifestation of a spirit or entity. These phenomena are also very rare and can take many forms: human-shaped mists or forming mists of some indistinguishable shape; transparent human forms that disappear quickly; and most rarely, human forms that look as real and solid as any living person, but that disappear into a room or even while being viewed.

All the above had been posted at another site. Since this list is actually pretty handy and you might want to print this out, I wanted to post it here for everyone to study and see if any of the above applies to your particular situation. The one thing on this list my wife and I have not had happen yet is the physical assault, and we do not want that to happen of course. As far as any physical evidence, we have had hand prints appear on a mirror hanging on a wall in our kitchen. The mirror measures roughly 3′ X 4′ or so, and a hand print had appeared (not before our eyes unfortunately…I would have loved to see that!) The hand print is NOT from any of us, nor is not from any visiting family etc. We have no children, and no other family has the keys to our house. So no accidental brushing or touching against or on the mirror could have happened.

If any of the above from the list applies to you, please leave a reply here and let us and the readers know about it.

New videos were added to the featured videos page for August. The now famous Georgia bigfoot carcass video has been added as well. Even though that whole deal stinks of scam and hoax, I couldn’t resist posting that vid for all to enjoy.

Dimensional shifts and time doppelgangers

Have you ever had someone tell you that your twin was just seen uptown when you were downtown at the same time, and you don’t even have a twin? Eight years ago I made a trip down to the deep south of the United States to meet my then soon to be wife. I had never been to the deep south before (being a northerner, or a yankee as I was called there, and having no twin, the following is impossible…) and upon going to one of the local gas stations there, I was asked how I liked a certain shopping mall I had just been seen at shopping the week before. I had not been in that region the week before, I was still in the north preparing for my trip down south. This person (a total stranger to me) said that he spoke to me for about ten minutes or more and that it was good seeing me again! Again, I have no twin.

As in the true tales story from the paranormal.about.com site that you’re about to read, this also happened to me…an experiance with an time displaced/doppelganger time warp situation. The universe we live in is filled with so many things we simply do not understand, yet that is. Time displacement, time warps being only theory (so far anyhow), is one of them, and a personal favorite subject of mine.

On with the doppelganger story which originaly was posted at paranormal.about.com:

Doppelganger Time Warp

I have a doppelganger / bilocation / time warp story for you — I swear this really happened to me. I do not really know what happened, but I do have a few theories…

Too good to be true or not enough research?

As if anybody truly had to become a super detective to figure out the motive and or reality behind the latest claim of a bigfoot creature actually being found. I’m referring to the one reported to have been found dead in Georgia by two bigfoot hunters/researchers. Again, I approach any cryptid, paranormal, UFO etc., story with scepticism. Not just blindly beleiving everything reported…even with pictures! As I had suspected with this story, that the actual remains needed and requested by the media to show the world of this discovery, couldn’t be produced. The supporting story is below, as well as the picture of this supposed bigfoot beasts remains. And as if that wasn’t enough, these two individuals made remarks about developing a business out of this “bigfoot discovery”. I may be wrong in saying this, but doesn’t that remark smell of greed and exploitation for personal gains?

Judge for yourself by reading the story below and be sure to study the picture of this bigfoot and keep in mind what I had suggested in an earlier post about the quality of prop effects used for movies and the like. Now, on with the supporting story & picture…

Story and more pictures can be found at wired.com.

Bigfoot remains or a very good costume?

Bigfoot remains or a very good costume?

PALO ALTO, California — Georgia residents Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer say they’ve found Bigfoot — and not only that, they say they have his body. They just didn’t happen to have the creature’s corpse with them for their press conference Friday.

At the well-attended gathering, Dyer and Whitton, together with professional Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi, answered questions, handed out unconvincing photos and talked about their alleged find.

“We were not Bigfoot hunters originally,” said Whitton, who claims he and Dyer found the lifeless body of a large, hairy, bipedal animal while camping in the woods of northern Georgia. “But now we are some of the best Bigfoot hunters in the world.”

Actual bigfoot remains or another hoax?

A supposed dead body of an dead bigfoot was found in Georgia recently. A picture of this bigfoot carcass can be found on the earthfiles.com site, on the front headlines page. One might almost be convinced at first, but remember that with todays technology and very good model makeup, movie FX style, hoaxing a dead monster carcass is doable. But, if this is authentic, then the first remains of this creature prove without a doubt that the bigfoot legends are true.

DNA and photo evidence to be presented at press conference August 15, 2008,

“I have found the body that would confirm Bigfoot exists.”

Back to business

The hard part is now taken care of…paper work, lawyer meetings etc., and updates and postings will now resume. I do appriciate your patiance and understanding. Making a move from one end of the U.S. to the other, especially when you’re moving a housefull of furniture and all that can be time consumeing and frusterating when you’re dealing with a boat load of little things.

I’ll be posting new items, so once again, I apologise for the long time of no posts and updates.

Mike G

Sporadic Updates

Updates will be sporadic at best due to my wife and I are getting ready to move into another state, a few real estate deals were taking forever to complete. We’re packing an entire housefull, so right now the moving part is taking up a lot of time.

Thanks for the understanding.
