A recent interview reports
"...nd what about Michael Jackson? How has his transition been?
He said that he was very maligned in this life, and he's not holding any grudges. He feels a definite unfairness because they accused him of so many things. You've got to realize that he was like a [9-or-10-year-old in a man's] body. He felt more at home with children than people his own age. He's in a healthier body now. I can say that he probably never would have made it through those concerts he had planned before he died. He was sick.
How does Princess Diana feel about Prince William getting engaged?
She's thrilled. She thinks Kate is a wonderful person for William, because she has a tougher skin than she ever had. Di was very shy and everything hurt her feelings.
Do you have any predictions for the upcoming year?
I don't think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going to last. They may make it through this year, but I think they're pretty much doomed. I'm also concerned that Liz Taylor isn't going to make it through this year. And you know what? I don't know why they're keeping Zsa Zsa Gabor alive. They had to remove her leg, she had a stroke, she doesn't remember anything or anybody -- I don't believe in Kevorkian, but when it comes time, just let them go."

Interesting from About Paranormal by s.Wagner.
"Lake Windermere Monster
This picture was taken by 24-year-old Tom Pickles on Lake Windermere in England on February 11, 2011 while on a work-sponsored kayaking trip. He and his friend Sarah Harrington both saw the creature as it swam by, and Pickles snapped the photo with his cell phone. They watched it for about 20 seconds and noted that what they saw was about as big as three car lengths. Until he realized its size, he thought it was a dog swimming by, "then saw it was much bigger and moving really quickly at about 10 mph," Pickles told reporters. "Each hump was moving in a rippling motion and it was swimming fast. Its skin was like a seal's but its shape was completely abnormal; it's not like any animal I've ever seen before."
The creature has been seen in Lake Windermere about seven times before, and it has been given the nickname Bownessie and is sometimes referred to as "England's Loch Ness Monster." The Loch Ness Monster is said to inhabit Loch Ness in Scotland.
Pickles photo and description match a sighting made by journalist Steve Burnip in 2006 near the shores of Wray Castle on the lake.

The potential connection between Bigfoot and UFOs has long been discussed in hushed whispers on the periphery of paranormal research.
However, author Stan Gordon is giving the topic a serious examination with his book Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook. Detailing a bizarre 1973 wave of both UFO and Bigfoot sightings in the Keystone State, the book is packed with never-before-told stories of truly remarkable high strangeness incidents.
The litany of odd tales found in Silent Invasion are sure to inspire debates in both ufological and cryptozoological circles.

New idea by eminent British scholar indicates not only was Merlin real but had guidance from Aliens.
"EUGENE, Ore. – The new book “Merlin: Knowledge and Power Through the Ages,” by British research professor Stephen Knight offers a new translation of “The Prophecies of Merlin” that, among other insights about pre-Medieval England, says the wizard used UFO sightings and Alien visits to sure-up the Arthurian legend.
As Professor Stephen Knight sees it, Merlin embodies the “connection” with UFO sightings and alien influence of the time. Knight says the Wizard Merlin, first was revealed in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s “Historia Regum Britanniae,” written about 1136 that places Merlin “at about 30 years old” but with no records of his birth or death.
While Merlin remained a legend for the past 1,000 plus years, Knight says it’s just recently that “The Prophecies of Merlin” have been re-translated from Latin back into “the British tongue.”
Knight writes that a separate version of the “Prophecies” alone would have stated the discovery of Merlin, but this had already occurred in Geoffrey’s history. “Thus, what we have now with the translated “Prophecies” (that are kept by the British Museum and not available to the public) is a Merlin who’s added by alien life.”
I want to trad that book...

Although a believer, when working with psychiatric patients,I never discussed the paranormal.A few of the staff knew of my interest.
One nurse asked me to consult with the staff to develop a treatment plan with a psychotic patient on the locked ward.They were at a loss she said as to what to do with him.
Currently, he was in restraints in a seclusion room.(patients in restraints are placed in locked rooms for their protection from the others on the unit.)We talked for a while.He recounted his belief of being abducted by aliens.He felt the Aliens had implanted a worm in his brain which talked to him and called him "bad" names like "coward" and "loser."They told him he was not suitable for them until he became more assertive"
We talked more about being assertive and a little about what he was doing and thinking before the"abduction"as well as whether the voices ever told him to hurt or kill himself or another.("No.")
He said the aliens did not like him to be here and sis not want him"tied up"However they did want him to take his meds.He said they told him to tell me he needed to be in a room that was not green,"It is not good for my studies" yellow or green would be better, he said.
He had assulted two Police officers and the admitting staff so had been only in this room and in and out of restraints (with injections of meds which were refused by mouth.)He did not know the regular rooms were yellow.
He seemed calmer and mostly lucid during our session. He agreed to take his meds orally from now on and not to hit,but to tell staff if he was getting"upset"He also seemed to understand we needed to trust him with these things so he would have to stay in the room.
That afternoon I met with the sraff.They recalled that the night before and several times that morning he saud the aliens had visited and they did not want him tied up...I discussed not talking about the content of his delusions but try to identify the underlying feeling and speak to that in a way that did not require a response.We agreed to take him out on the ward a few times at least twice a shift,offer his meds by mouth in a matter of fact way.and if all went well move him out of seclusion to a yellow room the next day after the morning team conference. We were all satisfied.
The next morning I filled the Docs and Social Workers in on the plan.(In case they did not read the notes.) The nurses reported he took his meds and went foe walks without incident.He had told the staff the aliens had visited and told him he was being moved yo a yellow room and he would be untied in the morning.
After the meeting the team makes rounds.When we got to his room,he was out of the locked restraints, dressed in his street clothes,and excited to move to his yellow room...When asked how he got his clothes and out of restraints, he said "The Aliens did it....
No one from the staff ever acknowledged that they unlocked his restraints or clothing...

Mr. and Mrs. S were residents of the Nursing Care Unit in a Retirement Center in Hawaii.They had lined there several years and both were in their middle 80's.
Apparently their family were all on the Mainland as no one had visited them in several years.The administrator remembered that about two years previously they had receieved two visits from a member of The Unitarian Church which they had attended for many years.Those were the only visitors anyone knew of for the past five years since the couple moved from their apartment down to the Unit.
They were the only couple on the Nursing Unit and a favorite of rhe staff.The two were very close and seldom talked about their past.
Mr.S had a severe stroke early one morning and died within hours.All arrangements had been previously made, leaving Mrs S no details to have to deal with in her devastated grieving.Only the staff and other residents joined the Minister for the Memorial Service.
As is often true in such situations, within a few months of her husband"s death,Mrs.S became critically ill.
A temporary nurse "new" to the staff was the night Charge nurse who along with a female and male LPN staff "regulars" comprised ths Night Shift staff..The nurse was preparing IV fluids and meds to be administered to Mrs.S when the elderly gentleman who had been at her bedside came into the hall amd said "That will not be necessary.We are leaving now."
"What do you mean?"said the nurse."She is a very sick woman." as she started toward the room.
The man disapeared.
Al , one of the LPN's had entered the hall from another room where he had been working.He said "I just saw Mr.and Mrs.S in the hall with a bright light around them and they vanished!"
When they entered Mrs.S's room they found she had died. No one else had seen the man at her bedside that night.
We considered it a wonderful love story.The temp RN however never worked there again.

The Rite' is based on a real priest trained in exorcism
Father Gary Thomas, based in Saratoga, Calif., served as an advisor. He says he has exorcised demons from five people.
By Susan King, Los Angeles Times
January 27, 2011
"...The best way to agitate a demon, Thomas says, is to pray over the subject; the person's face, he explains, will begin to distort as the demon manifests itself, something that the filmmakers utilized for a sequence in "The Rite."
"There is a point when Anthony Hopkins, you see his head look very unnatural in the way it is turning," Thomas said. "That's very normal. When you pray you hurt the demon, and the demon oftentimes will manifest itself in a very serpentine way."
Thomas recalled an occasion when he was visited by a young Venezuelan woman who had been involved in palm readings for several years. "I was beginning to do some deliverance prayers. Within a few minutes she began to tremor and her facial countenance began to change. You saw a snake. She began sticking her tongue out like a snake and hissing and rolling her eyes. She coiled herself up.
"Her mother and father began to restrain her a bit. I went to get the Eucharist. The woman almost jumped out the window [at the sight of the Eucharist]. Her parents held her down. One minute you could see the demon, the next minute it was her. She kind of came back. I said, 'Can you take the Eucharist?' She said, 'I'm not sure, but I'll try.' As I offered it to her, she resisted. I said, 'Just open your mouth.' All I had to wash it down was holy water."
If Thomas determines the person has a demonic attachment, he has a number of methods to free him or her before resorting to an exorcism. "You never try that first," Thomas says. "You use other means of protection — sacraments, prayer, the Eucharist. What you want the person to do is say [the demon is] not welcome, it is not wanted, so go away. The person cooperates by staying close to God through prayer, through the sacraments."

Researcher and publisher Giorgio Tsoukalos discussed the ancient astronaut theory and presented evidence which" he believes may prove extraterrestrials visited our planet in the distant past. According to Tsoukalos, the gods and heavenly beings mentioned in ancient religious texts and traditions were likely alien travelers. Further, stories of 'dragon snakes' found in certain early cultures may refer to aerial vehicles piloted by these ETs, as "the gods, or teachers from the sky, actually walked out of the belly of those flying serpents," he explained. The flying turtle carvings of Guatemala also seem to point to alien interaction with our ancient ancestors, Tsoukalos added.
The ET visitors tampered with early man's DNA to create human-alien hybrids, he continued, noting how this probably jump-started our ancestor's technological development. Tsoukalos believes an exhibit depicting a recreation of an ancient human at the Darwin Museum in Moscow confirms this hybridization program. Tsoukalos mentioned several puzzling archaeological sites as well, including the famed Cart Ruts of Malta, Ollantaytambo in Peru, and a 400-ton monolithic bridge in India. Local legend says the massive megalithic structure in India was place there by the gods to facilitate pilgrimages, Tsoukalos said.
Tsoukalos also announced that Season 3 of the History Channel series Ancient Aliens has been approved, as well as shared his take on 2012 and the Mayan Calendar. "Nothing will happen," he declared, adding that the biggest problem will probably be massive hangovers the next day."
I love this series.
