|'ET' in a Mandurah Humpy|
Posted:10/23/2014 1:38:26 PMIn 1982, a 67 year old woman saw a picture of "ET", Steven Spielberg's cute alien creation.

|The Pamir 'Snowman'|
Posted:10/22/2014 5:49:29 PMThere has been a renewed interest in the 'wildmen' of Asia...probably the best known is the Yeti. But there have been expeditions into the more tropical areas of south central Asia as well. In this post, I want to concentrate on mountainous central Asia, specifically those hominids or 'snowmen' that are said to exist in the Pamir Range of Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and northern Pakistan. These hominids go by several monikers...the Barmanu, the Tajik Yeti, the Almysty, the Golub-Yavan or simply the Gul.

|'....an extraordinary experience'|
Posted:10/21/2014 5:43:54 PMLast week I posted an article about people claiming that alien intervention actually healed them of disease and disability. This seems to be the case of John Salter Jr. (who is now known by his ancestral name Hunter Gray or Hunter Bear) and his son John III. John Jr. a faculty member of the University of North Dakota, who was embarking on a speaking tour of the U.S. southern states.
|What Was Lost...Was Found|
Posted:10/20/2014 4:42:03 PMIn 1988, I discovered that a vintage blue rhinestone brooch was missing from my jewelry box. It was given to me by my grandmother not long before she passed away, so it was very dear to me. I rarely wore the piece and I remembered seeing it in the box many times. I looked all over for the brooch, every room in the house.
|Creepy Blue Figure in Olympia, WA Forest|
Posted:10/20/2014 12:40:14 PMMy family and I recently went on a trip to Olympia, WA. We were on a forest trail; there were 5 of us there, and it was about 2 in the afternoon. 4 of us went ahead while my sister stopped to take some nature pics of the path behind us, as the forest was very beautiful. She doesn't like people getting in her nature pictures, so she double-checked to make sure no-one was in the shot when she took it. However, when she looked at it later, she found this.

|Alien Healing Claims|
Posted:10/17/2014 5:25:35 PMOver the years, there have been many stories of extraterrestrials / alien beings healing afflicted humans. Many of these accounts are hard to fathom, but there are a few that make one wonder on the authenticity of the claim.

About twenty-five natives, including teachers and medical technicians, also observed the phenomena. They "signaled" the humanoids and received an apparent response. This was one of sixty UFO sightings within a few weeks in the New Guinea area.
|Kentucky's 'Beast Between The Lakes'|
Posted:10/7/2014 5:20:43 PMAre the Kentucky werewolf / dogman accounts worthy of our consideration? The following article was written by a writer named Jan Thompson. The website where this article originally appeared was taken down by the author after the story was deemed by some people as fiction. I'm not going to go into that scenario considering the source of the accusations. The article has been reprinted by others though I cannot attest to the exact content those versions presented. There are several investigators in Kentucky and elsewhere who believe that Jan's story is credible. Colleagues from the area of the incident have talked to others who have met Jan. I also want to give credit to Barton Nunnelly who brought this story to the public's attention in his documentary Hunt the Dogman: High Strangeness in Western Kentucky

|Katherine: The Lady of Gray's Mill|
Posted:10/1/2014 7:34:14 PMAs some of you may know, I started investigating paranormal activity in 1977. Back then, there were very few investigators of unexplained phenomena. This particular investigation was conducted in 1984 at a location near my workplace. Some of Maryland’s most interesting history occurred along the Pataspco River. From Parr’s Spring to Elkridge, the river valley’s geography goes from a cold piedmont stream to a rugged, rocky gorge into a coastal plain. Many of my investigations have been in locations closely related to the river. Many paranormal investigators have concentrated on locales around Ellicott City. I like to dive deeper into the Pataspco River’s haunted history

|A Personal Ouija Event|
Posted:9/18/2014 9:19:53 PMWe have all heard or read the horror stories associated with using a spirit board. But regardless of the authenticity of a particular story, there is a underlying truth to the overall practice...actual evil, destruction and malevolent ramifications may result by employing Ouija. It has been my misfortune to have witnessed some of the pitfalls firsthand.
Posted:9/17/2014 4:32:19 PMI recall the room being bathed in neon-like blue light and two tall men looking down on me. They wore bright white jumpsuits with hoods. Their faces were very broad and smooth...their other facial features looked human. I heard one of these beings mention, in English, that "preparation will take some time." That's the last I remember...I must have gone back into the coma.

Surrounding counties in southwest Florida are notorious for bizarre cryptid sightings...skunk ape, cat people, dragons, thunder birds, reptilians, etc.

Posted:8/30/2014 4:01:54 PMOver the past few years, there has been an increased number of large cat sightings recorded throughout the eastern United States. Most descriptions have been similar to those of cougars or panther-like creatures, large muscular felines with long tails. Though, many of the reports proved to be that of a large feral cat or an oversized pet.
Posted:8/29/2014 9:00:23 PMSeveral years ago, a reader asked me about poltergeists and if these entities had the ability to use audible communication. There were a few modern reports, but I wasn't sure if these were exaggerations produced by the witnesses. So I decided to look over some of the prominent historical cases and post a few that exhibit authenticity even though the commentary may be a bit folksy. I offer my opinion at the end of the post.

The following NUFORC reports are from two witnesses who had the same encounter together. Some may feel that these witnesses were attempting to generate a hoax in order to cover up something else.

Posted:8/25/2014 3:53:55 PMThe witness was asked by unknown men (MIB?) if he had spent time in Seal Beach, which is located across the San Gabriel River from Alamitos Bay. I thought the mention of Seal Beach was odd until I realized that the Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach military base was located there and that may have been the reason for the question.
|Anomalous Images - Coweta County, Georgia|
Posted:8/23/2014 2:23:18 PMI was driving down Dead Oak Road in Haralson, GA when a wolf ran out in front of me. I stopped and took a bunch of pictures because that was really weird. I didn't get a picture of the wolf, and didn't see anything unusual - just a weird feeling. Then later when I looked at pictures, I had 2 that had unexplained things that I'd like someone's opinion on. BG
