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

Hello Everyone,

Thanks again for reading and I know I’m on another tangent but I like the flow of it. It lets me settle into a mood and writing style that I hope helps briefly explain the stories but also one that elevates the mood. This one might not seem as creepy or as eerie as others but still the facts and the investigations that followed add to the elements of the mysterious.

Where:

Well it took place on an island in the Flannan Isles of the Northwest coast of Scotland. The main incident of course that we are talking about took place at a lighthouse erected on one of those islands.

When:

December 28th 1900 was the date when someone first noticed something was amiss. The exact time of the disappearance is hard to conclude from the records except for the last time the missing people write into Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Well like I said earlier this week that was my last vampire blog for a while unless something really cool comes up. Well here is a new subject I’m going to be focusing on for a few to ten or so blogs over the next few weeks. The subject of disappearances.

Oliver Larch:

1890 was the year and the young lads name was Oliver. He was sent to fetch water from the family well on Christmas Eve while the family was singing. It was long after his departure to the well that the family heard him yelling for help. Supposedly he was yelling, “Help, it’s got me!” Or something around those lines. It is an interesting case because certain clippings and other sources have different stories and documentation. Back to the story the weather conditions of the day were snow blanketed landscape and clear skies after an earlier Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Well here it is. My last vampire one for a while. I must have done close to a dozen of them now and had this one last mysterious vampire tale to tell before I move on to another creature. Or creatures, who knows. Anyways this is some basic information on the vampire Jure Grando.

Who, Where, When:

He was a villager from the region of Istria known today as Croatia. When…well it depends. The facts say he dies in 1656 but he was around for sixteen years after that. According to legend anyways. This may be one of the oldest known tales of vampirism in the world, depending on the accuracy of the date in comparison with others. Once again it was in a small village in an older time which brings that eerie feeling all around for me. Mainly because of the lack of knowledge in those Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

We all have different attitudes toward the wind. Someone once even told me that I got angry if the wind wasn’t blowing the right direction. I don’t think that had anything to do with the wind but was something else entirely but still the fact of the matter is the wind can be a blessing and a burden at times,

I actually like the wind. Although not always in the hot summers here where it feels like a confection oven blowing in your face every time you walk outside but typically I like the unstill feeling that the wind or gusts of wind provides.

Wind and Gusts:

Wind is caused by changes or differences in atmospheric pressure when the high and low pressures meet. It is also caused by the Coriolis Effect. So the rotation of the planet is a combining factor in the wind production and the Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

I know I’ve done a lot of vampires so far but there are two more I want to share some thoughts on and one is the Serbian tale of Sava Savanovic, or is it a tale?

Sava:

From being the possible owner of the mill down by a river it is told that Sava used the mill to lure in the “millers” when they came to mill their grains. Then he would perform his typical vampire duties of drinking their blood and well…killing them. I wonder if the river would run red after his midnight feasts. Maybe another good little story there.

The Popularity of the Case:

Sava Savanovic’s tale came to be around or just later than another Serbian vampire I mentioned not too long ago by the name of Peter Plogojowitz. Perhaps the tales are one in the same vampire legend somehow morphed together because if Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

First of all I would like to point out that although marvelous and spectacular and fascinating and everything else that it is, lightning is dangerous. Just needed to get that out of the way and to point out that there doesn’t need to be storm clouds for there to be lightning. In certain climates there are such things as “dry lightning” and this phenomenon exits in some areas more than others. However I am sure that we or at least most of us are all aware of the precautions necessary when the dangers of lightning increases and how to prevent any accidents and decrease the risk. If not you can find some good information on the Internet by looking up the National Weather Service or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention under “lightning-safety.” Or simply follow the links:

Be safe out there this storm season. Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Something that the book Desert Shadows in many ways focuses on is the older mining facilities. In this story it mainly focuses on a particular time-frame and in a particular area. To not ruin anything for everyone who hasn’t read that far in I am going to concentrate on the general feelings that people often have towards these mines.

 

The Open Pit Mine Shafts:

Now I don’t know which one strikes me with a more eerie feeling so I’m going to talk about the two more common ones starting with the open pits. The thing that probably gets me the most with these is the possible accidentally fall to the bottom, bouncing of rocks and whatever other debris exist before you hit the ground. As a child growing up in the desert around these pits I found a fascination and a certain respect for these pits. First Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

This is a subject that could go on for a while. I am going to focus on the basic idea of the sites and what makes me get an eerie feeling.

I would like to thank my brother for this idea because it’s something that I often talk about with books like “Desert Shadows” but seldom refer back too. In fact it was an aspect I was highly considering putting into the book but I never brushed the details of the area enough to find it relevant to the plot.

Curse:

Typically a curse means to cause a misfortunes to someone or some type of consequence will come if someone does something to provoke or initiate the curse upon themselves. Curses can also be those that are given to someone by accident or by a person who can grant them to their benefit from the outcome. Some Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Just thinking about my upcoming photo session so I can get some pictures of me on the Internet and began thinking. I was thinking about some of the scary pictures I use as wallpaper on my computer and other types of pictures I’ve seen. Most of mine relate to an eerie feeling or what some might consider horror or just plain sick but lots of them were put on there for inspiration or to move my thought process along. Don’t get me wrong not all of my pictures are like this I do have landscape sceneries, animals, funny things and other stuff and am not totally divulged in this darker world.

The Main Picture that Comes to Mind:

The main picture that comes to my mind when I think of a scary or eerie picture is the one from the 1990 movie The Witches. For all of you Continue reading
