Hello Everyone,

Once again I went and wrote something a little philosophical but it is a break from the other stuff for me and allows me to free my mind. In writing you never can tell how much of a story has a secret underlying message. We often use these metaphors or likenesses to create something that relates to an audience but also ourselves. This is kind of what I got last week with the walls but this week it’s trails and mazes.

Mazes and Trails:

So once again I was at work today and thinking or lost in train of thought I guess I might say. I was walking through the desert trying to figure out my path in between cacti, trees, rocks or any surfaces that may be too much to climb up.

While walking, I remembered something from my past that had a lot to do Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Well I’m still on the disappearances thing. At least for a couple more when I’m not being all nostalgic. This time it’s a tunnel. The Lincoln Tunnel.

And this time it’s also a matter of time, so to speak.

The Lincoln Tunnel:

The Lincoln Tunnel opened in 1937 that connects New Jersey to New York via underneath the massive weight of the Hudson River. It is roughly 1.5 miles long.

To me the walls still creak with the weight and fluidity of the river waiting for the right moment to push down on the drivers inside. It might sound a little bit morbid but those were the thoughts I had. At least a few times while traversing the tunnel when I was younger with my grandparents. I prefer the George Washington bridge myself to get from point A to B.

The Mysteries:

One couple was driving Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

It’s about walls. I know this blog is about a something different and off the subject from the normal type of stuff that I talk about, so bear with me.

So for the job that I do, there are often times where I cannot perform my function. Whether it be due to the rain or lightning which make it more dangerous considering the fact that I work around electricity.

So what about walls?

So, I sat there waiting for the storm to pass over the other day in my truck. I was listening to the flood advisories coming through on my phone and stayed parked on higher ground out of the roadways. Right next to a brick wall. I noticed that the ground was flooding next to the brick wall. The roadway was also running and the rain was pouring down on the hood of Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Wow, I have to say that the amount of people my blogs are reaching nowadays is really great. Although we will be talking about the Norfolk Regiment I’m glad, and hope, that everyone is truly enjoying the blogs and taking a little bit of the dispensed knowledge with them afterwards.

So once again, thank you for continuing to read them and I will continue to try my best to deliver interesting subjects for discussion.

Back to the focus point though. The Norfolk Regiment. Well as most of you can guess it has to do with something vanishing or disappearing because that’s the topics of discussion lately. Well, you’re absolutely right. This time, however, instead of one person disappearing with many or few witnesses to testify to the accounts it was an entire regiment that disappeared.

Who, When, Where:

Well like the title states it was a Norfolk Regiment Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

So just the other day I was watching a movie and realized how much of a plot a love story can create. Also how many of the either eerie or scary movies involve a love story. That made me think about how many actually do have love stories or as part of the plot.

Some Classics:

First of all most of the old fantasy movies that many of us have grown up with like Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, or Cinderella all have this love as part of the plot for the story. However they also have the villains and despair inside the movie or the book that helps create part of the tale. It’s almost as if the story line would seem ‘too’ every day or normal to us if the characters did not also have a villain in the mix.

Sleeping Beauty had Maleficent.

Cinderella Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Well last week it was a whole village disappearing and this week we are going to brush over some facts of a single person. That person is David Lang. Although it doesn’t make it any less eerie when a single person or a lot of people disappear the case alone is what might boggle your minds. Once again this story has some evidence to possibly debunk it. But I like living in the mysterious realm and if I didn’t see it with my own eyes I might not believe the debunkers over a person who possible made the story up. Either way here are some parts of the tale.

Where, When, Who:

David Lang is obviously “the who,” but there is also the who that witnessed the event. His wife and kids watched him vanish in the blink of an eye and so did a passing by carriage. Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Well I know most of us have heard of the movie, “30 Days of Night,” or have seen it. It is a movie that involves vampires going to a northern Alaskan town to wipe out the population that decided to stay through the month of darkness. The eerie thing is, is that there is an actual village that did disappear.

It was the Eskimo Village on Lake Angikuni, Canada. I know they are not related but the similar aspects made me think of the movie. In the movie the vampires can feast for thirty days and then leave the town without any trace of the people. They would have simply disappeared. Similar to what happened to this village in real life.

The Event:

Apparently it happened sometime in 1930 as far as most of the reports go. Although the event was allegedly debunked I still think the Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Well I was writing some stuff this week and had another little episode of writer’s block. Sometimes we find ourselves wanting to write but not knowing how to initially approach it. Seldom do I get writer’s block so when I do I like to post how I overcome my episodes.

When the Initial Kick-off isn’t there:

Well sometimes I can just sit down and begin to write. Not everything I write will make it into one of my books or blogs or whatever but I have a jumping off point to begin with. Most of the time this is me. I have a general idea that I start writing with and then elaborate on it or will do some research afterwards to enhance the subject material, or to strengthen the plot. Depends of course on what I am doing. But sometimes I need to write and then when Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

I know I’ve talked about bugs before and more than once. The thing is, is that they often appear in horror movies or scary tales. We will see the worms crawling out of an upturned corpse or the spiders crawling up a wall but the truth of the matter is we do find these bugs more often than not in those places we already dread to venture. However in today’s blog post I want to talk about something else that concerns bugs. Swarms.

American Dustbowl:

Well there I was taking a break from my usual activities and trying to watch a few minutes of television with my brother at his place. I don’t have television so I obviously don’t watch much. I was watching a program called “Mysteries at the Museum.” I at least believe it was or it was one of the other “mystery” shows that are Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

First of all this is the triangle that is not to be confused with its more famous brother or sister triangle The Bermuda or its closest neighbor triangle The Bridgewater Triangle. I know right, probably never knew there were multiple “triangles” that have eerie occurrences or disappearances.

Where, When, Why:

The Bennington Triangle is located in Vermont. Actually Southwest Vermont to be more specific. When? Well that’s up to debate on what or who the when relates to. I have no idea if the mysterious area was always active but it came into popularity in the years 1920-1950. The “Why” is because a lot of people went missing in the region during those years? I know it is a long period of time.

Some Facts:

There are several reported incidents that occurred between 1945 and each one has their own intriguing and eerie story but the triangle in Continue reading
