THE SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALK BEFORE THANKSGIVING

Preparations are being made.. Turkeys are getting set for their pardons. Others are plucked and ready for an oven baked  night of finger licking food. Thanksgiving is set for this week. No stopping it, the calender does not lie and time does not give any extra seconds to get things right.. But things this year may be very wrong. A potential storm is in the making for Thanksgiving in my neck of the turkey. Of course, the fact it could not materialize is still present--as happened with a Thanksgiving storm in 2013 that never took off--but the potential is there. It could strike on party night.. and linger into the morning. If it happens. Making the planes, trains, and automobiles even worse off ..

But it's Sunday. And if it's Sunday, there's a lonely sidewalk to stroll on. Get ready..
News of the world coming at you now:

GRAPHIC IMAGES SHOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE.. These images are rough to see in some respects, but also extremely beautiful if you contemplate what people do to respect a corpse once a soul has left it.. The images actually forced me to contemplate even harder the question, 'what is death?'  How could someone, so active and alive, breathe one second but a human bag of flesh void of any marker showcasing the person's life the next?  Is it just like a computer shutdown? Something that works one minute just does not the next .. ? Or is it that important soul, if a soul exists? Does the entity that inhabits the body leave? So many questions that will never be answered--but my hunt for any evidence of anything continues unabated..

A good British report from the UK INDEPENDENT on the 'American' Black Friday creation..
 The paper asks if the discounts are helpful or it's just a trick.. There's a chance you can find something good. Like my local Turkey Hill offering up Ice Cream for a buck. But most of the stuff that goes on sale is unnecessary junk, just heaps of plastic foreign slave labor made products that don't have a place in someone's less than stellar dwelling. Let's get real this year.. Set a budget, that's one thing. But beyond that, buy something that truly has meaning--even if you give one gift to a person instead of ten, make that one gift be heartfelt and monumental in its importance. Or just brave the madness that will be Black Friday .. you can always do that, too, I suppose (I may, for that ice cream)

Go to the light! Quite literally.. if you want to feel better and have something serious, light therapy may be for you. Lately, in my personal world of home base, light has been hard to find. Sunny days are not abundant, it's been a very bleak November ever since Halloween ended.. And the cloudy impact has had an emotional one on my well being, with the sun seemingly vacated life, happiness has not abounded.. I just one a sunny day, one to bless my face with warmth .. just one day. It seems so hard to find this time of year. This article is a showcase as to why light, and the sun, is important. Vitamin D's best source is the giant light in the sky.. mood depression and other disorders could be solved with some rays.. As far as wellness, here's an old article suggesting the type of light bulb that may enhance your winter blues and turn the cold frown right around.. It's all about light.

So get out there and enjoy the sun. If not, get some new light bulbs and be the ray of sun wherever it's needed.

This is an important week. Thanksgiving--one of the best holidays of the year. Don't be glum. You're not a turkey.

GOBBLE GOBBLE.
Happy Sunday.

THE MOST POPULAR POSTS ON THE HORROR REPORT IN THE LAST WEEK

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 …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
