Fire officials say residents of an Orange County apartment that was gutted by fire were burning candles to ward off evil spirits before the blaze broke out.

Officials tell the Los Angeles Times ( ) that people were burning candles and sage before flames erupted Tuesday night in a Costa Mesa duplex.

The fire was mostly contained to a bedroom and was quickly doused.

Some residents were displaced but nobody was injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation but fire officials say people burning candles or using open flames should keep a careful eye on them.

It is being called the ‘UFO Ghost village’ in the Wandli district of Taiwan.. 

The flying saucers are located in the Wanli District of Taiwan.

Designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, the UFOs were designed originally as ski chalets. However in this case they were used as a cheap alternative to affordable housing.

There were several of these communities around the world.  

The houses typically contained a bedroom, bathroom and small kitchen. They also had a fireplace and six plastic lounge chairs.

There were also internal documents, including a report of legal claims against the network and job offer letters to top executives...

During the solar eclipse on August 21st, a 70-mile wide shadow from the moon will cut solar power production by about 9,000 MW as it rolls across America’s ever-increasing number of solar arrays…then the solar power will come roaring back. But we can prepare for that…

Sinead O'Connor needs your thoughts on prayers

Sinead O'Connor says she is suicidal and living in a New Jersey motel »

Sinead O'Connor posted the clip on Facebook revealing she was all by herself at the $70-a-night Travelodge motel in Hackensack, New Jersey, and fighting to stay alive.

In the video filmed from the bed of her room in Hackensack, the mother-of-four said: 'I am now living in a Travelodge motel in the a**e end of New Jersey. I'm all by myself.

'And there's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist - the sweetest man on earth, who says I'm his hero - and that's about the only f***ing thing keeping me alive at the moment... and that's kind of pathetic.

'I want everyone to know what it's like, that's why I'm making this video.

'Mental illness, it's like drugs, it doesn't give a s*** who you are, and equally what's worse, it's the stigma, it doesn't give a s*** who you are.

'Suddenly all the people who are supposed to be loving you and taking care of you are treating you like s***. It's like a witch hunt.'

States Preparing For Historic Eclipse Like A Natural Disaster!

States Preparing For Historic Eclipse Like A Natural Disaster! »

According to, another 1.8 to 7.4-million people will travel into the path on Aug. 21. Several small towns and less populated states are preparing to see their populations double or even triple in the week leading up to the solar event.

And in our country of fear–a nation on edge constantly since 9/11 so many years ago–everything becomes frantic..

Several counties in Idaho and Oregon have already issued emergency declarations. Local officials are citing increased public safety risks, financial damage, and excess costs of cleanup and property damage for the alerts…

The path of totality is in population zones not really prepared for an influx of a great amount of people..

But the panic in media that has been displayed is over the top.

We are on the verge of seeing a major historic event–once in a lifetime event for some people alive today.

Can we please.. PLEASE.. just enjoy it?

Maybe in 2024.

City morgues across America filled thanks to heroin overdoses


The bodies are stacked high–from the floor to the ceiling. =

This CNN story is focusing on Ohio–even a tidbit about a sheriff of Clermont County whose wife is a heroin addict.
Police and officials have learned in the state that the drug addiction crisis is not just about treating addicts as criminals: Medical experts now need to have a say..

One focal point is Montgomery County in Ohio: Experts are predicting that there are going to be about 800 overdose deaths this year–doubling last year’s 349.

Interstates 70 and 75 are the hubs for cartel and dealers–those two major highways cross the nation and have been using Ohio as the the destination point of shipments for the Northeast corridor..

This is similar to my own state: Interstates 80 and 81 intersect in Hazleton. There is an amazing restaurant called TOP OF THE 80S, but the town is also the location of a drug-hub ..

Heroin highways is what they are called: Major highways that are used to continue the drug nightmare all across a nation with towns that dread sundown..

A moment in history

I am preparing to write up a lengthly post about why I think, all of these years later, so many people are still fascinated and constantly watch footage of the attacks of September 11, 2001. And in the mean time I realized that on this day in 2005, August 7, Peter Jennings met his fate.

I did not want the moment to pass without mentioning what a brilliant and amazing reporter I thought Jennings was. His voice was able to comfort me through a number of troubling world events. His evening news broadcast was reliable.. The day he died was a terrible moment.

On that note, here was the final sign off from the man of the evening news hour on April 5 2005. With class.


My newest fascination is also my oldest: Phantom rain drops..

Those weird moments when you suddenly feel a drop somewhere on your body, mostly on open skin such as arms, your neck, or the top of your head.. you pause for a moment, look up, look around.. check for wetness.. wonder why on a sunny day you’d be hit with a drop..

And even ponder if a bird’s poop may have inhabited your skin for just a moment in time. There are endless pages on REDDIT and other websites that actually speak about this weird phenomenon .. And yes, there are valid scientific theories as to why it occurs. Tingling sensations in your nerve endings that sometimes can cause a ticklish feeling to overcome you, or even a painful throbbing out of no where. Or… a phantom rain drop..

With every rational idea comes a paranormal twist. Some online claim that not only do they feel phantom drops but they also FEEL water afterwards! There are a few who claim they hear rushing noises of water only to find nothing.. people who believe a rain show is taking place and look out a window and see nothing but bright sunshine ..

It’s weird. It happens to me, and when it does, it is just plain weird. For me, I never felt water. I felt the sensation that water hit me.. It happens from time to time and when it does, it is very exact to how water would feel during the beginnings of a sudden rain shower.

When it happens inside you check your ceiling for evidence of a pipe bursting. Yes it is odd. But paranormal may be a stretch–unless you’re one of those contenders who believe you actually not only get the sensation but also get the feeling of water finding a home on your body and rolling down your otherwise dry skin.

So .. a question for all, I would love to hear responses. Did this ever happen to you? Did you feel the feeling? And .. did you ever actually pause and wonder why…


Sooo… I am playing the new remade Playstation 4 Crash game while listening to Art Bell ‘somewhere in time’ on my local A radio station. It feels like 1999 again and it feels great.
