Can We Talk?


Last Sunday I watched a lot of television.  Why, you ask?  Well, I’ll tell ya.  I got hooked on the UFO documentaries.  I just couldn’t tear myself away.  Beautiful day outside but I stayed in – glued to the TV.

What impressed me were the many reports given by pilots, NASA and the like.  Wow – although a lot of it was either simulated or just lots of lights in the night sky.  But it was the reports from the planes’ black-boxes that so intrigued me.  These guys were not crazy, drunk or hallucinating – they were alert and aware.  So, what were these objects in the sky?

The reports went on to say that they appeared after WWII.  It was after this time that the reports started pouring in.  But I have evidence that something was going on way before then.  The following is an excerpt from the diary of Meredith Conn of Tyrconnell, Ontario, Canada.  You can view his actual handwritten journal in the historical library of St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada.

“April 29th, 1859.  About eight o’clock p.m., there appeared in the east, near the horizon, a luminous spot in the firmament.  It moved slowly toward the west, and increased in size, until it seemed opposite my place of residence.  It then seemed to be stationary.  It had, by this time, increased to an enormous size.  To the naked eye, it seemed to be about a mile in length, broad in the centre and ending in a narrow point at both extremities, very near the shape of a parabolic spindle.  It was very brilliant and it was a heavenly evening.  The sky was very clear, the stars shone very bright and there was not a cloud to be seen.  The phenomenon lasted about an hour from its first appearance and then vanished.  At this time, I had never heard of, or seen, such a long curved streak or body of light.  It resembled a deep reflection from some luminous body of fire or electricity.  My mind was deeply impressed with its appearance – coming from the east, going to the west and stopping near the zenith where I was.”

Being the religious fella that he was, he felt it was a sign from God to examine his soul.  Well, maybe.  Or maybe it was an alien ship hovering over the land.  Or maybe there is a scientific explanation of this particular phenomenon.  If you know something about this, let’s have it.

The Joy of Spring

A time of renewal in body and spirit.  Things that looked dead for months, suddenly burst with life.  Tender green foliage appears everywhere.  Little buds soon growing into lovely flowers.  The air is still cool and clear.  Spring, like Autumn never lasts long enough.

Soon summer will set in along with the heat, humidity, smog.  I am not looking forward to it.  My hair will be frizzy, my skin oily, my clothes wrinkled.  So what if we don’t have to shovel snow?  I wish there were a way to shovel smog and humidity to make it go away.

Here, beside Lake Ontario, our summers are rarely clear.  The haze caused by humidity gives a grayish cast on everything, making it look like a gray winter day – only hot.  Colours are muted.  Here on the 26th floor we have a birds-eye view of the lake.  On clear days, we can see the Niagara Peninsula.  Oh well, what’s the use of complaining.  Can’t do a thing about the weather no matter what those environmentalists say.  It will do what it will do.  The earth is forever changing.

While on that topic, it would be very nice to see a country free of pollutants.  It would be very nice to have motorized vehicles fueled with hydrogen rather than gasoline.  It would be very nice to have everyone throw their trash into proper receptacles.  It would be nice to have the steel plants treat their refuse before pouring it into Lake Ontario.  It would be very nice.

Something For Me To Share With You

Well, do I ever feel like the dumbest person on this planet.  If you ever knew the sort of time I’ve been wasting trying to find a way to insert thumbnails into my blogs, it would make you cry.

I simply wanted to add thumbnails to go with my pictures so it would add some interest to my posts.  Man, I downloaded Coppermine, then ComFetch, then Copperminsc.  With all the muss and fuss and extra coding and nothing worked (except Coppermin) I could have saved myself many headaches and days of wasted time. Thank you WordPress.  Now, let me add some photos.
