A funny thing happened on the way home from the hospital

Much to the chagrin of some readers to email me expressing a desire to stop reading about time slips, one more funny thing happened on the way home from the hospital.
For those not aware, you can read back from the week and find out all the information you want to know, my father had a very trying stay in a hospital and received medical care for some life-threatening physical ailments. For one whole week it was like life was on hold, as though there was no passage of time but yet time went by faster than ever before.

 I wrote a lot about strange and anomalous events this week, déjà vu, and even the death of Nelson Mandela and how it relates to some old urban legends about him being a time traveler..

So just when the family started to think everything was right yesterday, my dad was discharged, and this timeline got straightened out, something funny happened on the way home from the hospital.  My father got released a during a snowstorm, with the roadway treacherous and the drive home tremendously troubling.. To make a long story short, my sister was a passenger in the backseat while my dad was comfortable in the front.

Before we took my dad home, we made a pit stop at my sisters house. She ran in, came outside, and was speaking to her husband. I was in the car I half a block away watching, I had just gotten off the phone when she exited her home. Suddenly through my phone I heard her husband tell her not to forget her keys, and I heard through my phone my sister responding to him that she won't. I also heard myself talking to..

My father looked at the phone, startled and most likely wondering if he should go right back to the hospital, but I confirmed to him that there's something strange happening with my iPhone. When my sister got into the car I told her to speak and when she did she heard herself talking through my phone...I told her that we heard everything that her and her husband was saying half a block away..

I know phone sometimes can pick up each other in a certain range, and I sure know that the government tracks every single thing we say on them. But I have never heard about a phone picking up a conversation of people who were not on the phone, and all the while my phone was hung up...

I don't know if this can be chalked up to some alternate universe, with the conversation taking place within it. It sure was not déjà vu, although the first thing my dad said when he got home was that he was having an extreme case of it. 

Common sense tells me that this is just some sort of a weird technological glitch, something which makes you ponder computers and wonder how much more they can hear them what we assume..

My phone is not the same as my sister's or brother in law's.. different companies, different cell phones, different makes and models. But yet I heard a conversation through my cell phone of two people, and I found it interesting that only those two people were heard. My sister and brother-in-law, but not other people who were walking on the street.

For quite a while yesterday the idea was floating through my head that instead of some sort of a weird alternate or parallel universe, we are actually living in a computer matrix simulation of events.  A matrix world could explain that the day my father comes home from a week long stay at the hospital is also the day that we get a major snowstorm and the morning my son comes down with a fever and flu.

Or maybe that is just how life works? The wonderful world of coincidental crises?

Is some computer player in the sky was just making us do things we don't want to do?  This some master coder laughing as he watches people try to figure out that there simply in a coded matrix? enjoying simulating events? seeing what computer characters make choices--choices that the coder is already making us make?

Is God merely some skilled gamer who made a really intricate game? We are told that God knows all...sees all...plans all. Likewise, the computer programmer knows how to the game will end and when he will turn it off, he will create players and situations for them to play within, and he will make a world for them to live in.

Does a website know that it is a website? Does a SIM know that someone is watching it's every move?

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…
