A family member of mine, name and official title nameless at this point, told me a strange story of a bizarre nature. She swears by it, and I can relay it only with this caveat: She comes with a strong mind, a strong will, and an amazing ability to sense things that others may not. Along with that, she is not the person who ‘cries wolf’ or sees oddities where there are none. In essence, she’s the perfect witness to a crime: Someone who will restate the factual and not embellish on the unseen. In the case of the story she told me today, the unseen in the central focus of what has happened to her..

In short, her family dog has been acting strange as of late. Each time the family leaves the house, the pet makes a bowel movement on the same place of the upstairs hallway in her house–like clockwork and with pinpoint resolve, the dog is in the focused spot each time. The latest time she went out, just last night as a matter of fact, and came home, a dog mess was right back where he always leaves it..

This time, though, had a twist.

While she was on her knees scrubbing the floor, she was tapped on the top of the head by some sort of object. Blaming her husband for mindless frivolity, she spoke his name aloud but he was not present.. Instead, the hallway was empty and not a soul was seen.. But a coin was right in front of her–a coin that was not there seconds prior to the hit on her head and certainly not there when she had started cleaning up after her animal..

The other extraordinary part of this strange tale: The coin was a Euro one cent piece..

Logic has escaped her. She is void of an explanation to the monetary strangeness, instead she has decided to chalk it up to the antics of some sort of spirit, time warp, or portal.

I went through likely scenarios of a skeptical nature–a piece of money on the door frame above her, perhaps even stuck in a ceiling block. But both are impossible–there are no door frames where she was kneeling, nor ceiling blocks. This Euro cent just, in a sense, fell on her head from no where–materializing from the sky and slamming down into the reality in front of her..

In my own thoughts on this matter, I did the old 21st century method of attempting to quantify this story with other similar ones. I found an interesting link on a PARANORMAL About website, one that details some historical moments when money seemingly fell from the sky without a source.. Some of the stories describe potentially deceased loved ones giving signs to the still living. But in my family member’s case, no one to our knowledge has died in Europe recently.. Sure, distant relatives came here decades ago, but at this point nothing to ‘write home about’ .. There is one important connection to someone serving in the military in Europe. But he’s fine at press time and, again, a connection between that and this Euro from heaven incident seems to be nothing worth mentioning..

But there is one last thing worth mentioning..
While the sign may not be obvious, that Euro from heaven may have helped do one thing: save a life. Today, that same family member who has become perplexed by the whole notion of something coming from no where and striking her clear right in the middle of her head was looking for the penny in the pants she wore yesterday, she told me she wanted to get the Euro and just make certain that it was all true. The Euro was there–but she also made herself late for work because of the search. In the mean time, on the same route she travels, an accident occurred and claimed two lives. Moments afterwards she drove by the scene, peering our of her window and … thanking that little Euro for buying another day…

This story is true..
At least as true as it was told to me..
Relayed to you. From this time period to yours.. Money from heaven?
The magic Euro theory.. perhaps.



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…


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…
