A stroll along the Sunday morning Sidewalk

A SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALK, Sunday November 10, 2013

A sampling of news from the world..



The horror in the Philippines is almost too much to grasp..10,000 dead from a storm? It could be that high, or higher. Yes, mother nature is cruel.. but we're told God is not. And if He's not, I urge someone to tell me why such events like this one happen..

The death toll from the superstorm in the Philippines could reach upwards of 10,000 people. There have been some who believe it may actually end up being even higher than that..
One witness described Haiyan of being like a tsunami..
The situation is dire, but with the conditions and lack of power, it will be some time before a true accounting of the devastation is actually known.



Haiyan is now on to Vietnam, where 6.5 million people are preparing and 170,000 soldiers have been drafted to reinforce homes ..
And another tropical threat is coming to the Philippines..

5.5 quake Tokyo..

The falling European satellite is still sending signals..

Burglars pick the wrong house: They rob from woman who is an expert at throwing axes, and that's just what she does to fight back..

STAR WARS hopefuls by the hundreds audition for parts..

Hollywood Reporter laments Blockbuster: A eulogy for a three day rental..

People are mocking Blockbuster and what we, as movie watchers, used to do. I will tell you this, it wasn't that long ago ---up until about 4 years I was still renting at Blockbuster---that the store got me through many nights.. it was a shining gold light on top of a hill--quite literally for my store.. You felt like home in it.. I think people will one day miss movies this way. Same way I say we'll miss bookstores too..

More news later.. until then, enjoy your stroll down the Sunday morning Sidewalk..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
