NIGHT TERROR NEWS

We have all been startled away at 3am.. the witching hour, as it’s called, in whatever time zone you inhabit..

The world so often seems sketchy at that moment, a fuzzy haze develops in your vision as you struggle to figure out, within a split second, where you are and who you are.. Did you ever wake up and have to tell yourself that your alter ego who existed in your dream, or nightmare, wasn’t real?

These days those early morning battles with identity are often made easier by the cell phone resting near our heads–perhaps too close if you subscribe to the premise that radiation is slowly or even quickly killing us. But when we see the phone, and check our Facebook, and view the Twitter feed, we either get stuck in a limbo between sleep at the alarm clock.. or fall fast back into the nightmare and dreamscape that we left.

But what of those news feeds.. those headlines.. those late night snacks of alerts in email? They play a role in what we dream of.. The nightly news does too. The morning headlines begin our day, often with fear and intrigue on the planet earth.

A few promises from us: You will get many sides of stories.. you will get real news, hard hitting information.. entertainment. And you’ll also get themes–the news follows themes so often..

But beware, buyer. With all information comes a tactical ending. And with every headline comes a potential night terror, quietly haunting your subconscious as you struggle to pull those warm covers over your eyes.

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…
