90th Anniversary: Knoebels opens--and promises a new room of scares!

Simply put: Knoebels is the best park in the state of Pennsylvania.
Scratch that.. the nation..
Scratch that.. the world.
Need I go on?

Perhaps there is a bias here. I have been traveling to Knoebels Grove since I was an infant.. I go every year--being about 25 minutes away helps.

The park has free admission. Free parking. And yet with the influx of new people over the past decade, it has managed to keep its past in check. It still feels like home. No one ever frowns----not one person who passes me by in the crowd seems unhappy at all.  Knoebels is an escape from reality.. it is quaint and fun. Good fun. And fantasy...
And this year: It includes an extra scare.

The haunted house at Knoebels is a fun little ride. Pizza first or after is fine, there's a stand right next to it. Along with DipNDots ice cream.

This year, for the 90th anniversary of Knoebels, it's time to scream. The park promises new ghosts and a new room in the famed haunted house.

The 90th anniversary press blitz has been…


Recent Donald Trump rallies have brought out huge crowds of supporters and often smaller but vocal--if not violent--protesters normally causing chaos both inside and outside of the boisterous rallies..

And the latest chaos forced Trump, who wants to build a wall to stop the flow of illegal immigration, to cross a wall himself..

This time it wasn't a rally but a banquet.. the California Republican Party kicked off its convention in Burlingame Friday with Trump as a guest.. Trump arrived at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport at 1333 Old Bayshore Highway in Burlingame shortly after noon. CHP officers pulled off the side of Highway 101. The candidate hopped a fence and entered through the back of the hotel..

“That was not the easiest entrance I’ve ever made,” the frontrunner said. “It felt like I was crossing the border actually. I was crossing the border, but I got here.”


300 dead in India.. deaths elsewhere.
Heat strokes..
Records broken for highest temperatures for long duration in 65 years...

The heat wave is extreme and seemingly intensely getting worse with each passing day in South Asia.

Hundreds of people have deceased in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and India..

112 degrees in Thailand.
108 degrees Cambodia.
108 in Seno.

Officials are telling people: Stay indoors and drink water. There may be a problem with that, however..

The heat wave is also causing severe drought in the much of India effecting crops and livestock. groundwater reservoirs are at just 22 percent capacity in parts of the western states of Maharashtra and Gujarat after rivers, lakes and dams have dried up..

May is traditionally the hottest month of the year in the same parts of the world now getting record heat.
There is a fear that what is being seen may only get worse over the next four weeks..

The moment we see the soul?

Various persons of various mindsets have read with interest this article from the UK TELEGRAPH.. the moment the human egg meets the sperm, when life is conceived, a bright flash emits..

 There are some very sound scientific reasons the visual. Additionally, the same light flash has been seen in other animals.

 This is the first time it has been viewed in human..

 Religious websites and those who think of profound issues have already honed this as proof of he soul--the light is energy from a higher power being transferred..

 Others who have a rational worldly view simply say it exposes a number of scientific processes that illustrate chemical compounds combining in a dazzling array of lights.

 But we know this: There are indeed 'fireworks' when the sperm meets the egg.

The hot new fad: Showing your old McDonald's food

And it is disgusting..

The Internet is suddenly alive with posts and images from people worldwide who are showcasing old McDonald's food..

Some have had burgers for 10 years hat didn't rot.. French fries that didn't mold.. 'Chicken' nuggets that don't look a day older than normal but they're six years old..

 Creepy food pictures for sure.
 And suddenly the Internet is uniquely disgusted by images of corporate food..

 McDonald's may have s social media problem to combat of images keep getting circulated. The chain has already taken a recent profit hit with a lack of purchases of their food.

 Old food.

A German city installs traffic lights into sidewalks

Is this how humanity has 'evolved?'

Foreign visitors frequently wonder why crowds of Germans wait for traffic lights to turn green when there are no cars in sight.

 That is why officials in the city of Augsburg became concerned when they noticed a new phenomenon: Pedestrians were so busy looking at their smartphones that they were ignoring traffic lights.

 Now Smart phone users don't even have to look up from their devices before potentially being struck fatally by a car..

The Rhoden family massacre: Intrigue over marijuana grow operation

A “major marijuana grow site with suspected ties to a Mexican drug cartel” was discovered in Pike County Ohio four years ago, according to a 2012 press release from the attorney general’s office.

 Authorities have made no connections between this grow site and the “operations” found on the Rhoden property.

 The way the Rhodens were killed shows it was a pre planned and well coordinated hit..

 The entire family being murdered with the exception of two young children illustrated no remorse from the killer or killers..

 Small town America is often quaint and quiet. But also, across America, a perfect place for secrets behind closed doors..

 Secrets kept.
 And so far law enforcement has been keeping them as well.
 This crime has shocked America. And he hunt continues to find suspects who may have perpetrated the horror..
