Islamist rebels bring in engineers to repair the dam they've seized!


But the true horror in the 'liberated' Iraq continues to make headlines.. things like this: Christians throwing their own children off of cliffs in Iraq .. apparently they'd rather kill their own children instead of having them beheaded and tortured by ISIS.. Fear is driving a lot of action right now in Iraq.. The air strikes thus far appear to have a muted response..


Another bit of absolutely disgusting horror from the region: ISIS forces a religious minority to die of thirst on a mountain.. And this: New and *very graphic* photos are showing the ISIS atrocities..

What we are hearing happening is true hell on earth.. it's beyond scorched earth policy.. it's modern war crimes taking place.. What choices exist? No one wants another ground war.. But air strikes at this point don't seem to be mattering much to anyone..







It's another supermoon weekend.. Here's the places best to see it..

But will that bright moonlight will outshine the Perseid meteor shower, underway now as Earth moves into the debris stream of parent Comet Swift-Tuttle? Maybe.. Fireballs may still cut through the glaze of a supermoon, but could be harder to see with a bright night light in the sky..

America Airlines tweets out photo of a longstanding sky mystery: The pilot's halo. The halo is when a rainbow engulfs an airplane in midflight.. But there are potential explanations ... anything from water droplets to ...well, God. Pick your own theory..




The weather outside is going to be fruitful.. Come September, we're told, a polar vortex of cold will return.. An early autumn? Maybe.. even an early winter: Big snows are possible in November and December. Are you ready for this? I'm not. . . and even these normally warm and muggy August nights have been a bit chilly lately..




Ready, set, implant! Microchips will be in healthy people sooner than you think.. This is not a crackpot saying it, it's a respected researcher and is being reported by the Business INSIDER..

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…
