That most sacred little place

Every spiritually-minded individual has one or more specific locations of which they naturally gravitate towards. It's likely that one such spot stands out above the rest. This is the one spot where everything just "makes sense." Everything positive---throughout relevant time and space---is coalesced in spirit at this place. This could change for a person over time, as they may move or find something even greater and more relevant; or that location could be artificially altered in some way, and then unfortunately avoided by the person. For some it could be a heavily populated place, although I can't imagine anything other than a quiet spot amid natural surroundings. For some it could be a special sanctuary of nature, possibly with a breathtaking view of or from a mountain or valley. For some it can be best enjoyed during the day, for others at night or twilight; or perhaps it's great at anytime.

This isn't necessarily to be confused with a great or interesting time period for an individual, which is tied to a certain general location; although it could be. Sometimes soft human settlement can almost magically produce wonderful places conflated between settlement and nature, with lights and familiarity on one side, and darkness and coyote howls on the other. A full or almost full moon on a dark clear night can open a natural portal to the other side... a door to timelessness... into the Ur. Mountains and water, I believe, can literally be vehicles of time, space, and other realms. The mountain as a metaphysical antenna; and/or the water as a metaphysical mirror. The trees, or even log telephone poles, around you can be spiritual conduits. From the moon (energized by the sun), to the natural portals of mountain or water, down to the trees or log poles (energized by electricity), and then down to you through your pineal gland, and/or through a crystal or smooth stone in your hand, through the tip of a hand-held staff, through your feet. or even through the conduit of our "60% water" organic bodies.

Even radio towers and tall power lines, especially if they are positioned on or wind over a mountain, can energize the spiritual connection of the environment. "Grounding," your bare feet literally touching the natural non-paved ground, will energetically connect you to the magnetic energy of the earth. All of this combines natural energies with metaphysical properties; solid matter with spirit, organic with electricity, science with magic. Additionally, a clear sky is a must. However, even if these conditions are not in place, the sacred place still is alive in you. "Casting a circle" should not be necessary, as this energetic connection is 100% natural. If the location is powerful enough, it's connected as part of your personal and genetic cosmotheological grid. Although we may not want to even think of it, unless you actually own the land that it's located upon, the place could possibly be destroyed by human civilization at some point; in which case you would be best to move on elsewhere.

I have had other sacred spots over the years. One such place was an uninhabited property; a very old home on a good sized plot of land along a creek amid groves of large trees. I happened to know that it was owned by a nearby Catholic High School, and very sparingly used as a stopover for traveling parties. The front of it was obscured by several shade trees and thick bushes, with only a simple gravel driveway visible. At the mouth of the driveway, a smallish structure with a car port could be seen. The gravel driveway, about 25 yards long, led to an fancy little, perhaps 2-bedroom early 20th century home. It had a small simple cobblestone patio in front of it, with a brick outdoor fire-pit structure--surrounded by tall thick hedges--which blocked the view from the smaller structure near the street. There was an additional 30 yards between the house and the large tree dotted creek, with sparse shade trees and bushes in between.

On occasion I took the liberty to have lunch there, walk the grounds, or sit in the patio or by the creek. I was certain that it was not in use. I was trespassing, although in my own mind I was a proponent of the property. It was a small slice of heaven, although I no longer visit as the area around it has built up and there are frequent guests. I enjoyed being able to utilize the spot when I could. It was something of a secret place for me I suppose you could say. Of course there were other special places as we all have, but that one stood out for me. One time years ago, at about midnight, I was in a nearby undeveloped field; and a small meteor about the size of a basketball raced by at probably about 100 mph. I could literally see and hear the flames; definitely a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. It was moving from left to right, at a somewhat downward angle, towards this property. It landed somewhere by the creek, and I spent some time trying to actually find it. Obviously I would have waited until it cooled off, as it would have made a special souvenir. I couldn't locate it.

My current sacred place is off of a walking trail, where an industrial area, a residential area, and a mountainous canyon park all meet. From the location, on a clear night, one can see a starry sky directly above. One can look at the black mountains against the dark blue sky which is a bit illuminated by the suburban lights of nearby urban areas beyond the park. A full moon looks as spectacular as in any dark sky. There is something mysterious about looking into the blackness of the canyon and hearing the coyotes howling form time to time. There is a slight bustle from the sounds of the nearby industrial area, still active during the night. Every once in awhile, a large black object moves across the dark blue sky--an owl--barely visible by the dim beams of those suburban lights. An old town in the distance is quiet as it rests very comfortably against a mountainside; some homes and decks almost hidden by the larger trees located higher up on the mountain.

Recent high priced sparsely situated homes and short condominium buildings have sprung up on the lower side of this valley across from the park. Begrudgingly, at least this one time, I admit that the developers did a fortunately thoughtful job of placing them gently amid this beautiful open space area. In other words, they didn't spoil anything in particular. These homes and condos are dim and very quiet at night, and the ones visible from one section of the walking trails look tranquil. Small animals are often seen walking about. There is also a large body of water nearby, but not in view. Close to this spot, along the trail, is a structure which looks like a house; although it's a small office building. It's medium green with white trim, and reminds me of a mini grange hall. In a fantasy sense, I would get more out've living in that structure than in a typically urban mansion. I like to just look at it, as it appears magnificent amid the environment. A few days ago, while visiting my special spot, I pondered its significance to me in a more deeply spiritual manner; just as I did, I saw a shooting star.

Pondering the concept of electrical energy and metaphysics, there are even radio towers on top of--and one stream of large power lines moving across--the mountain range. These towers, although large, almost disappear amid the landscape. There are also log telephone poles along one part of the trail, and along the sacred spot, and they also mesh well amid the trees and hillside. In other words, within this area where man and nature conflate, there are all of the elements for a metaphysical experience from my perspective. An earlier great uncle of mine and his family had relocated from the far away Montreal River to this town, and my parents had moved to a location only several miles away at a later point in time; and with all of the time and inter-generational experiences and memories here, there is truly a powerful longtime psycho-spiritual energetic connection to this place. I feel it deep within; those mountains are like antennas beyond time and place; where otherwise obscure and unrelated towns across the world are bio-metaphysically connected through me the individual, and through my bloodline. I don't have to do anything, as this connection is already in place. All we need to do if find it.

I am not in anyway claiming to be unique in this way. This could be true for anyone. Every individual and clan is different. When we look for those types of individual, family, historical, and metaphysical connections--and the energetic grid that ties them all together--they are there. There is even more finite detail as far as connections to my sacred place, but I just wanted to cover the main points comparatively for others; and also largely though the idea of those who--in one way or another--could be relevant to this blog. For example, this could easily be applied to our various quickening folk and spiritual traditions. When rural, remote, or even primitive peoples, developed sacred places for their tribal collective; it meant something. They had something definite in mind. As we know, the mainstream apparatus of the more technological societies do not except the concept of locations and energies, and will build right on top of places with negative energy.

Especially for all of you Asutrar or folk-pagans out there, I believe that this is something to look into. Think about where you have lived, where the rest of your family and past generations have lived, and piece it all together from an individual, spiritual, geographical, and collective perspective. For many, such a place would be entirely a location in nature; a forest clearing, on top of a mountain, or along a shoreline. I guess for others, the whole thing could have a much more urban tie-in. If some of the other ingredients are in place, I suppose that there is that energetic potential. There are quaint locations in big cities, perhaps close to high hillsides and large bodies of water. The obvious question is... "Why?" On top of our traditions which are based on folk, earth, sun, moon, time, and spirit; there is an individual-DNA link to this. I believe that it's a part of the collective spiritual tradition and experience..... and ritual.

Like-folk, especially through marriage-kinship, can share in this concept; and you can share in theirs. You don't need to directly state "this is my sacred spot"; but it can be communicated through a short story... especially while at the spot or nearby.... and all the better if it's a spot where you can unfold a few chairs. Of course, this is if you're more-or-less on the same page. Sharing in this manner is also another way to foster a closer and cohesive clan group. I can think of many times that someone was just starting to tell me something very interesting about their family lineage; then, all of a sudden.... they stopped! Perhaps it's time to share more of those short stories with each other. It's not like you're focusing on the past, or living off of past glory; as hopefully we're looking at the past, present, and future... and looking to try to live up to things great from our collective past. The individual and the clan are part of the same concept. If a person is part of your larger clan or tradition--of course, in a slightly watered-down and collective sense--isn't their history, your history?

"While becoming, we discover, we already are."


1-15-18 ADDITION:

This has been a popular posting, with 1,588 views in just a month. I just wanted to add an applicable item to it.

More than just a stretch of land

This is a small excerpt from the pre-game speech in the film 'We Are Marshall'. It was in reference to the final resting place--a small stretch of grass--of six football players who had died in a plane crash. I think it's also very applicable to the concept of land, family history, and DNA energy-stamps discussed in the above piece. Although short, I think it really hits the mark. I omitted the word "gentlemen" due to it being applicable to any of a particular family/DNA/clan bloodline... "ladies, gentlemen, children, etc." Again, the emphasis was on a particular spot.

"This is our past... This is where we have been. This is how we got here. This is who we are, today."

Physical locations count. Even if we move on, our families have permanently placed their DNA energy stamp on the location. In this manner, it forms a type of metaphysical DNA-map. When a descendant comes back to it, even if it's generations later, there's a metaphysical connection.

A History of Valtellinese and Valchiavennasca immigration (Australia, Argentina, U.S., etc.)

[Note: The smaller Valchiavenna is most often considered a part of the Valtellina. Officially, the region is called Sondrio; after it's capitol and largest city. This translation may have unintentional errors.]

'Emigration from the Valtellina and Valchiavenna'

Published by the Istituto Comprensivo di Ponte in Valtellina

In the last years of the nineteenth century the migration of Italy suffered a mild aftershock, followed by a very strange and sudden drop in 1903 and by a new and intense wave of immigration in the first three decades of the century. It was then interrupted almost sharply since the outbreak of the first world war. This was the period of greatest exodus from the Valtellina and  Italy, and calmed only in North America during 1908-09 because of the crisis and the ebb of the Argentine market.

The migration was characterized by the behavior of the emigrants from Valtellina and Valchiavenna whom adapted to any craft. Under the pressure of this phenomenon were formed religious and immigrant associations and offices for the assistance of workers abroad. The provincial department of labor and emigration in Tirano took care of the services of everyone regardless of the religion or politics of would-be emigrants who were demanding information on countries of destination, working conditions, wages, climate, and accommodation.

The temporary decline of migratory flow was due to several factors: first of all the workers almost always returned to their place of origin, and secondly the U.S. introduced various restrictive measures for workers coming from the Mediterranean area. From 1890 to 1940, however, 70% of the Italians who emigrated to Australia came from the mountain provinces of Piedmont, Lombardy and Veneto; and between 1890 and 1930 the migration to Australia included some 15,000 peole from the Valtellina.

Arms of Mazzi di Valtellina

The countries in which these villagers were sent were the United States, Argentina, Australia and Brazil. Canada, as well as Urugray, accepted a lessor number. Argentina made broad concessions on easing visa and consular concessions. They always favored the influx of workers because, above all, the great labor requirements included mostly farm work. On the other hand, the Valtellinese and Italians preferred this country both for its climate and for its language. In Australia, however, many of them left the mines in which they pledged initially, to devote themselves to building roads and railways. Their overriding goal was to amass funds in order to carry on agriculture and livestock.

Many migrants managed to purchase property or rent land for farming. Many villagers opted for emigration to the U.S. where they worked in factories, on farms, or wine-growing plantations of California. It is from here that workers from Valtellina and Valchiavenna brought home big nest eggs. Among the emigrants,  not everyone was an honest worker in search of better luck. Somtimes among them were draft dodgers, or people with criminal records who were leaving illegally.

Provincial authorities often took care of problems related to migration. They sought to thwart foreign labor recruiters who too often unscrupulous businessmen operating in neighbouring Switzerland (Poschiavo Valley, and the Ticino) and acting as agents for companies. Their actions, considered a hindrance by the Italian authorities because it was done upon honest people by profiteering interests. This induced the Prefect of Sondrio to raise awareness among municipal authorities, for they contrasted the propaganda activities of these agents. Abducting their propaganda material would prevent their entrance into Italy, as they  finally gained control of the labor situation between Italy and Switzerland.

The latter measures were also taken because, among the large groups of emigrants who journeyed from Poschiavo to ports of northern Europe, there were many from the area of Valtellina. Even the press was sensitive to the migration phenomenon and operated to give advice concerning the necessary passports, the requirements of foreign countries, etc. One study, which examined in depth the causes and nature of migrations, was held in Valtellina by the journal 'L'Operaio' di Berna. G. Bianchi published the results of the study in a newspaper from Valtellina called 'La Montagna'

Also, an organized a series of conferences were held in the main centres of the province; and two congresses regarding emigration were held in Tirano in 1904 and 1913. The second with more than 500 participants. During the second meeting---chaired by Rinaldo Piazzi, the Mayor of Ponte in Valtellina---two major issues were discussed. One consisting of the diseases affecting villagers, and the other being organizing an evening office facility for prospective emigrants in Grosio.

The Rosicrucian "cross" - A Christian cross or a Saturnian "cube"?

The Rosy Cross to the left could appear as having at least a partial link with Christianity. In one way this is correct, as Christianity is the exoteric outer layer for Rosicrucianism, which is the esoteric inner layer. At the end of the day, Rosicrucianism is a Saturnian cult. The hexigram (aka "Star of David") and the pentagram are both associated with Saturn and each other... as in the "talisman of Saturn." 

Also present on the Rosy Cross is the astrological symbol of Saturn, which also has the "cross symbolism" tied to it. In addition, although not seen on the Rosy Cross, the alchemical symbol of Saturn is in itself a partially "cross-like" design inside.

Lastly, the Rosy Cross is made up of six squares. These squares represent the Saturnian cube "unraveled." What I can't figure out is why so many people who are always antagonizing about Christianity, "patriarchy," "males in general," "white males," etc.... are so ready to roll down their sleeves and fight anyone who questions these arcane, and I would suggest malevolent, societies with so much power?

So often they have their hooks embedded so deeply into completely different sides of virtually every spectrum in human society that they can easily play one side against the other. Christianity is a big part of that (Christianity vs. Atheism, New Age, Gay Movement, Islam, etc.).

Full Cold Moon "Supermoon" 2017

December... already!

This Full Cold "Supermoon" is a tweener... in between Saturday and Sunday evenings in practical terms. It occurs at 10:48 AM est/7:48 AM pst, and apparently Sunday evening is best. Along the coast here we've already been getting some cold and very clear winter-like evenings, of which Sunday evening is shaping up to be another.

'Full Moon Sunday Kicks Off 'Supermoon Trilogy,' Including a Lunar Eclipse'

Elizabeth Howell - - December 2, 2017

 The Dec. 3 full moon is the first of three consecutive supermoons, including a lunar eclipse. The other supermoons will happen on Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, 2018. You can watch Sunday's supermoon live online here, courtesy of the online astronomy service Slooh or directly from here.

If you only have time to catch one of them, be sure to check out the "extra-special" Jan. 31 supermoon, NASA said in a statement Friday (Dec. 1). The late January supermoon will take place during a total lunar eclipse visible from western North America, the Pacific and Eastern Asia. It will also be a blue moon, too. [Supermoon 2017 Guide: When and How to See It]

A supermoon occurs  when the full moon is at the closest point of its orbit to the Earth, which is also called the perigee. That makes the moon look extra-close and extra bright — up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than a full moon at its furthest point from Earth, called the apogee.

Pair that up with a lunar eclipse, and you will have a spectacular view of the moon turning dark as it moves out of the sun's light and into the shadow of the Earth. Only the light reflected off Earth will be visible on its surface, producing a ruddy red-brown color on the moon's surface during totality.

Feed the Birds

Make a special treat for your backyard birds: Wrap yarn or string around the bottom row of a large pinecone and tie into a loop for hanging. Mix birdseed with enough natural peanut butter to hold the seeds together. Using a teaspoon, spread a small amount of the seed mixture on the top of each scale (imagining how the cone will hang), packing it as firmly as possible into the space. Hang the pinecone from a tree branch or bird feeder.


Perry Como ft Fontane Sisters- It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas (RCA Victor Records 1951)


 "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" is a classic Christmas song written in 1951 by Meredith Willson. The song was originally titled "It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas". The song has been recorded by many artists, but was a hit by Perry Como and The Fontane Sisters with Mitchell Ayres & His Orchestra on September 10, 1951. A popular but unproven belief in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, holds that Willson wrote the song while staying in Yarmouth's Grand Hotel. The song makes reference to a "tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well..."; the park being Frost Park, directly across the road from the Grand Hotel which still operates in Yarmouth. However Grand Hotel was a popular name used by many hotels in numerous towns and cities.

Vikings = Asatru and more

With the popularity of this historically accurate (mostly) program, comes an increased interest in the spiritual traditions--dare I say "religion"--of the Vikings. First, I believe that things should be put in proportion. The Vikings were indeed the last great European power which followed the old ways, their "native beliefs." Asatru, Odinism, Heathenism, or whatever name one wants to call it, was once widespread across at least half of northern Europe and elsewhere. In other words it's not a "Viking religion," or a Scandinavian-only tradition. There was an Asutrar story in Austria, Russia, Spain, etc. Academics sometimes refer to it as "Germanic neopaganism," which is accurate if "Germanic" is used in an international Teutonic context. It probably should be noted that Asatru is not glamorized in this series, despite the newfound fascination with the Vikings and their culture.

I think it would be fair to state that it originated with the ancient Teutons, and it's a primarily northern European tradition.... although there are some grey areas. For example, the British Iles, Gaul (France), nations east of Germany, and the Mediterranean nations were spiritually impacted by Asatru, but they weren't Asatrar by-and-large. In addition, there was a lot of crossover and conflation with other European spiritual traditions. Asatru was still making a dramatic impact after the others had largely been run into oblivion. Asatru, like anything else, can be gently merged with any area of one's life. "Native
belief" in general, usually makes a person a better woman or man. I'm not specifically "Asatru," but I understand the concept. There's most often at least some Asutru influence in any European earth-based tradition....

'Odin worship of the Lombards and Benevento': Part I

'Odin worship of the Lombards and Benevento': Part II

My hope is that the increased interest in Asatru will also translate to an increased interest in other European spiritual traditions, of which there's quite a few... including multiple for the same nation or region. For example, someone asked me online what the "native belief" of Ireland was. I responded that there was Druidism and Gaelic Polytheism which were both heavily connected to Irish history. Also, there were several forms of ancient witchcraft which existed there deep into the ancient world; as well as the impact of Asatru. That impact wouldn't be just from the Vikings, but from other sources. There were earlier Teutonic movements. Also, there has long been a cultural linkage between Ireland and Iceland. Of course, this is just one of many regional examples.

Think outside the box! Using the above example of multiple regional traditions, or for those who have multiple European heritages, one could decide to describe themselves as "Asatru with Gaelic influences" (or Druidic). I could describe myself as "Stregheria with Asatru influences" (or Etruscan, Gaulish, Roman, Druidic, Cernic, Aradianist, etc.). Everything doesn't absolutely have to be one-thing! Some Freemasons in the UK over the years, have considered themselves something unofficially as "Druidic Freemasons." I also believe that one should really only accept one primary path. Another phrase describing the beliefs of a native-believer is "radical traditionalism."

'Eerie 'Portal' Appears in Argentina'

Coast to Coast AM - October 28, 2017

A woman walking her dog through a park in Argentina captured a remarkable image which shows a breathtaking beam of light in the sky.

The unnamed witness took the photograph at the San Jose Park in the city of Feliciano on the morning of October 24th.

Although some paranormal enthusiasts might be hoping that the image is proof of some kind of alien portal opening or other fantastic event, weather experts say that it is actually a natural phenomenon.

Meteorologists explain that the tube-like formation is created when masses of warm and cold air briefly come close to each other, but do not merge nor collide.

As for the source of the illumination, the woman apparently took the picture just as lightning had struck, creating just the right combination of events to produce the appearance of a ethereal beam of light.

Athiests... scientific dimwits

Richard Dawkins is not spiritual or even scientific. Every time there's a tragedy, this guy chimes in and tweats "Where is your god now!!" Atheism is "a politic" more than a religion as some claim. It's the reason that when facts or fossils are discovered which prove current theories are wrong, partly wrong, or incomplete... they're ignored and/or put away into storage and forgotten about. There's nothing particularly impressive about someone following a political agenda when a system is in place which strongly favors your side. People talk about "fake news".... how about "fake science"..!? Trillionaire/Globalist political interests have their grimy hands into every area of human endeavor. This guy is so dense that he ignores even the mainstream work at CERN, literally proving a metaphysical world right before our eyes! More and more often we hear powerful voices, on a variety of Globalist choke points, stating something to the affect of "there is no debate on this issue" when it can be debated. It's contrived "winning" via propaganda rather than real facts. "There's nothing more enslaved than an enslaved mind which thinks it's free. It's the ultimate prison." -- David Icke


'New DNA Testing on 2,000-Year-Old Elongated Paracas Skulls Changes Known History'

April Holloway - - July 23, 2016

The elongated skulls of Paracas in Peru caused a stir in 2014 when a geneticist that carried out preliminary DNA testing reported that they have mitochondrial DNA “with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far”. Now a second round of DNA testing has been completed and the results are just as controversial – the skulls tested, which date back as far as 2,000 years, were shown to have European and Middle Eastern Origin. These surprising results change the known history about how the Americas were populated.

Paracas is a desert peninsula located within Pisco Province on the south coast of Peru.  It is here where Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery in 1928 – a massive and elaborate graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world. These have come to be known as the ‘Paracas skulls’. In total, Tello found more than 300 of these elongated skulls, some of which date back around 3,000 years.

(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right '
Cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
(All of the time)
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight


'Of Course Bonnie Tyler's 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' Is the No. 1 Song on iTunes Right Now'

Cady Lang - - August 21, 2017

Turn around, bright eyes — ahead of the Great American Eclipse, Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” has reached the number one spot on iTunes. On streaming platform Spotify, “Total Eclipse of the Heart” saw a 2,859% increase in the U.S. and an 827% globally.

The Welsh singer’s viral popularity at the moment has caught some real momentum; in addition to Tyler singing her hit (and quite apropos) song during the actual solar eclipse while aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Total Eclipse Cruise, the song is also up 500% in sales, clocking in at 12,000 downloads the week of August 20 according to Nielsen Music.


Too bad Bonnie Tyler got involved with her trashy husband, who publically disgraced her, in the first place. I know that's just a perception, as he really disgraced himself. Who cares if he's a multi-millionaire; that's like the equivalent of owning 2 houses in an average modest Bay Area neighborhood here. It's interesting that in the U.S. military, adultery is still considered a crime. A crime meaning they handcuff, arrest, and charge you.


'Daughter follows grisly footsteps'

Woman killed the same way as her mother

Rachel Melcer - The Cincinnati Enquirer - September 18, 1999

Searching for the security she knew during her mother's life, Patricia DeChristopher wandered down a lonely Indiana road one April night and found herself following in the footsteps of her mother's death.

Just like her mother, Mrs. DeChristopher, 36, got into a car with two men she hardly knew and wound up dead in the woods, her throat slit.

The two men arrested in the Lawrenceburg woman's death — Ronald W. Pavey, 38, and George James Liapis, 33, both of Lawrenceburg — are in jail and awaiting trial early next year. Mr. Pavey was charged with murder, Mr. Liapis with aiding in murder and assisting a criminal. If convicted, they each face up to 55 years in prison.

Dennis Mitchell was convicted in 1980 of killing Mrs. DeChristopher's mother, Marie Odette Huckings, exactly the same way. He has a parole hearing scheduled next week and, if successful, could be released from prison Nov. 28.

Patrick DeChristopher will do his best to see that all three men remain behind bars. He blames them all for his wife's brutal fate.

“That instance right there was the defining moment in Patricia's life, when her mother died. Everything else came back to that, that her mother died that way. She never recovered from it,” he said.

He paints a picture of a happy young girl, full of energy and hope, whose life was forever changed when her mother left their upstate New York home for the evening and never returned.

After her mother's death, the family fell apart. Patricia, then 16, and her four siblings scattered to the winds, some to foster homes. Her father was either unable or unwilling to help, Mr. DeChristopher said. Patricia lived with one friend of the family after another until she finished high school, then she wandered through New England from one waitressing job to the next.



Fiona Domenica
This case was documented and reenacted this week on the Investigation Discovery program 'Dead Silent' in the episode 'A History of Violence'. Patricia DeChristopher was portrayed by actress Fiona Domenica, as the docudrama fully captured the tragedy of her demise. For some reason that I can't explain, I remember certain cases from the "ID" true-crime channel. I don't remember the biggest, loudest, or most gruesome; just cases of certain innocent individuals and a few small details about and/or relevant to them. I'm not the type of person who becomes sad-on-demand; but some cases are so crushing. Maybe that's part of the reason that true-crime is so popular, more than ever now. The crime has happened already, there's no going back, so it most often creates a ready-made gripping story. Occasionally the victim does escape, which can be unexpectedly uplifting.

Good Morning Britain

Pamela Anderson talks candidly to Piers and Susanna about her relationship with Julian Assange, who has been held up in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012. Broadcast on 20/09/2017


Pamela Anderson looks so much better and more "real" since he finally dropped the over-done makeup look. She is of Scandinavian ancestry, and originally from a very poor rural part of British Columbia; although it appeared a very beautiful place.


'Why Evolution is Not What You Think - The Ebner Effect'

The Controversy Over Darwin Played a Crucial Role in Jolting the American Public Into the World of Science in the mid-1850's / But, there's at Least One More Big Surprise Coming on the Subject / The Next Big Step in Evolutionary Biology Will Explain Junk DNA, Epigenetics and the Cambrian Explosion at Once / It Will Remove Any Need at All for Lengthy Timespans to Explain Dramatic Evolutionary Changes / And it Will Forever Alter Our Conception of the Role of DNA in Evolution / The Experiment Which Demonstrates it is So Simple that It Will Inevitably Become Popular as a Grade School Science Fair Exhibit

No Other Scientific Controversy Better Demonstrates a Need for Public Awareness of Scientific Controversies

Here we have an enormously useful biological tool, but since it does not help to prove the textbook theories, scientists have largely failed to notice; and since it undercuts simpler business models, corporations have abandoned it.



Ebner Effect

Hitman Notoriety

The static electric field (SEF) can change the appearance of an organism in a single generation. What is claimed as millions of years of genetic evolution is incorrect. Evolution is the accommodation or acclimation to the static electric field presented.

Eddie Money - Wanna Be A Rock and Roll Star



'Eddie Money' album #1 - 40-year anniversary

Eddie Money's first album in 1977 is almost like a "greatest hits" record. He was never able to equal it. It's all hard rock, with a few melodic-style songs. "Eddie Money" (Mahoney) is originally from NYC, but has been based in the Bay Area (East Bay) for all of this time, and is particularly well-known to local audiences here. Although 'Two Tickets to Paradise' and 'Baby Hold On' are the most well-known songs from this record, I most remember 'Wanna Be A Rock and Roll Star'; which somehow captures the fantasy, more so of that day, of being a rock star. To many it was better than being the president... "Wanna be a rock-n-roll star!.... Wanna drive a big black car!" Perhaps four of these songs made the charts, although I personally found 'Got To Get Another Girl' to be a very interesting forgotten find.


Mt. Konocti - An active volcanic field only 30 miles north of the Bay Area

Mt. Konocti is a 4,305 foot mountain right on the edge of Clear Lake, California. It is also a dormant volcano, which last erupted about 11,000 years ago. What is also interesting is that it first erupted 350,000 years ago, which shows how small we are within the bounds of time. There is evidence that there was a particularly devastating eruption about 13,000 years ago which dramatically changed the whole landscape.

Geological status

The U.S. Geological Survey classifies the Clear Lake Volcanic Field, of which Mount Konocti is the most prominent volcano, as High Threat Potential.

The 43,000-acre lake itself, located in Lake County, California, is about 2,500,000 years old. Comparatively, Konocti is a late comer to the landscape. Ancient volcanic glass (obsidian) can be found all over the area.

Vlad Dracul aka "Dracula" as depicted though history and fiction (image has to be right-clicked)

An interesting 78-years-later remake of the 1922 German silent horror film 'Nosferatu' about a vampire, with its distinct terrifying look, was the film entitled 'Shadow of the Vampire' (2000). It's an imaginative-reality spin of the filming of the original... which depicts the actor as a real vampire. It was pretty good. John Malkovich plays the film's real director Frederich Wilhelm Murnau; while Willem Dafoe plays "Count Orlok" the vampire. Actually the part was played by actor Mac Schreck in 1921, however in this spin Orlok plays himself. Clever idea.

'The Great New England Vampire Panic'

Two hundred years after the Salem witch trials, farmers became convinced that their relatives were returning from the grave to feed on the living

Abigail Tucker - Smithsonian Magazine - October 2012

Children playing near a hillside gravel mine found the first graves. One ran home to tell his mother, who was skeptical at first—until the boy produced a skull.

Because this was Griswold, Connecticut, in 1990, police initially thought the burials might be the work of a local serial killer named Michael Ross, and they taped off the area as a crime scene. But the brown, decaying bones turned out to be more than a century old. The Connecticut state archaeologist, Nick Bellantoni, soon determined that the hillside contained a colonial-era farm cemetery. New England is full of such unmarked family plots, and the 29 burials were typical of the 1700s and early 1800s: The dead, many of them children, were laid to rest in thrifty Yankee style, in simple wood coffins, without jewelry or even much clothing, their arms resting by their sides or crossed over their chests.

Except, that is, for Burial Number 4.

Bellantoni was interested in the grave even before the excavation began. It was one of only two stone crypts in the cemetery, and it was partially visible from the mine face.

Scraping away soil with flat-edged shovels, and then brushes and bamboo picks, the archaeologist and his team worked through several feet of earth before reaching the top of the crypt. When Bellantoni lifted the first of the large, flat rocks that formed the roof, he uncovered the remains of a red-painted coffin and a pair of skeletal feet. They lay, he remembers, “in perfect anatomical position.” But when he raised the next stone, Bellantoni saw that the rest of the individual “had been com­pletely...rearranged.” The skeleton had been beheaded; skull and thighbones rested atop the ribs and vertebrae. “It looked like a skull-and-crossbones motif, a Jolly Roger. I’d never seen anything like it,” Bellantoni recalls.

Subsequent analysis showed that the beheading, along with other injuries, including rib fractures, occurred roughly five years after death. Somebody had also smashed the coffin.

The other skeletons in the gravel hillside were packaged for reburial, but not “J.B.,” as the 50ish male skeleton from the 1830s came to be called, because of the initials spelled out in brass tacks on his coffin lid. He was shipped to the National Museum of Health and Medicine, in Washington, D.C., for further study. Meanwhile, Bellantoni started networking. He invited archaeologists and historians to tour the excavation, soliciting theories. Simple vandalism seemed unlikely, as did robbery, because of the lack of valuables at the site.

Finally, one colleague asked: “Ever heard of the Jewett City vampires?”

In 1854, in neighboring Jewett City, Connecticut, townspeople had exhumed several corpses suspected to be vampires that were rising from their graves to kill the living. A few newspaper accounts of these events survived. Had the Griswold grave been desecrated for the same reason?

In the course of his far-flung research, Bellantoni placed a serendipitous phone call to Michael Bell, a Rhode Island folklorist, who had devoted much of the previous decade to studying New England vampire exhumations. The Griswold case occurred at roughly the same time as the other incidents Bell had investigated. And the setting was right: Griswold was rural, agrarian and bordering southern Rhode Island, where multiple exhumations had occurred. Many of the other “vampires,” like J.B., had been disinterred, grotesquely tampered with and reburied.

In light of the tales Bell told of violated corpses, even the posthumous rib fractures began to make sense. J.B.’s accusers had likely rummaged around in his chest cavity, hoping to remove, and perhaps to burn, his heart.
