Since it's Halloween, I'm sharing with you a creepy piece of paranormal evidence. Around April 2001, I began researching for a local broadcast news investigative series to be titled "Unexplained" which would air on News Channel 12, the CBS affiliate in Jackson, Mississippi.

Reporter Darren Dedo, Photojournalist Rob Ruffin, Production Manager Ed Mazzone and I had produced the previous year a 4-part series called "Ghost Hunt" where we explored several local properties rumored to be haunted. The series was a blast to produce and we received an Associated Press award.

When we decided to do the series on a monthly basis, my first stop was the Civil War battlefield of Raymond, MS. It was a warm April evening and dusk had set in. I brought along a tape recorder and my digital camera. While recording, I began asking questions and snapping digital pics of my surroundings after each question: "Is anyone here?" "What's your name?" "How do you feel?"

After taking several more pics, I packed up and heading back to WJTV to review the recordings and images. Also, broadcast video cameras were recording various rooms in the Raymond Courthouse which had been used as a hospital during the war.

The audio tape yielded nothing more obvious than loud bugs and many of the pics had little to offer...until I came across one. In the video below, you'll see a reenactment of my technique and what I found.



Reviewing the video footage yielded no visual evidence of anything odd, however, banging sounds and what clearly sounded like a large wooden table being moved across the floor could easily be identified.

Soon, I hope to share all the evidence we collected on our numerous cases...

Goodbye, Allie

We called her many names over the years. Allie-rat. Monkeyface. Georgia called her "Baby Kitty" which was funny calling an 18-year-old cat a baby. With her passing, the last piece of living Mississippi in our house was lost.

Allie moved with us to Maryland from Mississippi. She and Bones flew with me on two separate return trips to Baltimore from Jackson. Maddy the Beagle rode with us in the Honda Accord. Now, all three of those furbabies have passed away.
Allie was a unique kitten and the last of a litter from a momma kitty adopted by a country radio station, Miss 103, in Jackson, Mississippi. A mutual friend and DJ reached out to Kim and me, knowing we were animal lovers and hoping we could help her get the last kitten adopted. The momma wouldn't let the kitten nurse because she chewed on her nipples too hard. One family returned the kitten because the children thought she was too ugly. 
Of course, we took her in. Reminding us of an alley rat - that became her name. Go…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.

NEA Is Full Of It

"When did you become some political?"

That question is asked of me routinely by random friends in various wording. Fact is, five years ago, before moving from Mississippi to the DC Metro, the extent of my political expressions were limited to voting in elections. I didn't discuss or write about politics. Frankly, I rather despised politics. These days, it's impossible to be a conservative and not speak up while living near DC.

Limiting the amount of political sharing on my Facebook page is a daily goal. After all, no one wants to only hear about one genre from someone all the time. Sadly, there's a lot of material out there that most of us shield our eyes and ears to it or have it spoon-fed by the the media instead of researching and forming our own conclusions. At least two people have defriended me on Facebook and several more dropped off my Twitter feed as a result of my conservative views. Their loss.

Some things simply must be shared. Such as the recent even…
