witch and warlock battle

They started as friends and business partners but that didn't last.  Lori Sforza is a witch priestess who filed for an order for protection against Christian Day, a self proclaimed warlock.  The judge sided with Sforza and granted her the restraining order with Day stating that he would fight it every step of the way.  Luckily neither one brought out their magic wands or started throwing curses around...yet.  witch/warlock fight

Hocus Pocus

It came out in 1993 and was not an immediate hit but the three witches from Salem have now become a Halloween tradition.  I remember watching it and loving it even back then.  I guess though that most people didn't think the way I did.  It was called an "unholy mess."  After all these years it has grown to be loved by many and there may even be a sequel.  The Sanderson sisters may be back.

Halloween comes early

A Texas woman was renovating her backyard when the workers found a casket.  It was buried in the yard and had to be lifted out by an excavator.  Bones and other items were found inside but luckily they turned out to be dog and cat bones.  DeeDee Oliviera had just purchased the house on Elm Street and was almost living her own nightmare.  casket

Dog finds message

Idris Martin takes his rescue dog for walks along the beach.  Sheba doesn't like chasing after sticks but she loves bringing back bottles that have been thrown.  Martin had just thrown a bottle into the water and Sheba went to retrieve it but instead found something else that was a bit heavy for her to bring back.  Martin had to go into the water to help.  It was a glass bottle with a message inside along with pictures from three children.  The bottle had traveled an amazing 3500 miles before Sheba found it.  Martin is hoping that the three children will return his email.  message in a bottle

9/11 predicted?

Some say that the Back to the Future movies predict the 9/11 crashes at the World Trade Center.  Here's a short film explaining the theory.  video

The Force Awakens

Pictures, posters, and now the new trailer are out for the new Star Wars movie.  It will hit theaters on December 18.  I have been a huge Star Wars fan since the first one came out.  I remember standing in line about a block long just to get into the theater to see it.  My standing in line days are over but I will certainly go to see this one.  Star Wars

Star Wars flight

It's not the Millenium Falcon but close enough for us earthlings.  All Nippon Airlines has a plane that is decorated like R2-D2.  The first flight was for fans.  The characters on the flight included Chewbacca, some Stormtroopers, padawans, and even some R2-D2's.  Star Wars plane

nightmare for students

In the area of Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, England, there have been sightings of clowns...and not the kind in parades.  Some students at local schools have reported that they've been chased by two people wearing clown masks.  Someone is pranking kids just to get a scare out of them.  Police in the area are taking the incidents seriously.  That would be one of my worst nightmares.  clowns

3-year-old queen

3-year-old Avi has been crowned  homecoming queen by a football team in Denver, CO.  When she was born, she wasn't expected to live past 6 months but she is a fighter.  The football team helped redo her back yard over the summer and were so taken with her that they decided to do something more.  Avi

Bring them home

Our soldiers come home but sometimes without their friends.  Some don't make it out alive and some are just left behind.  It's the canine heroes that are not considered military and can't be flown home on military transports even though they have put their lives on the line just as their human counterparts have.  But a new bill waiting to be signed by President Obama could change all that.  Please bring our 4-legged heroes home from war so that they can have a furever home with their handlers.  Our retired 4-legged vets deserve the same treatment as the 2-legged ones.  Don't leave them behind to be euthanized.  Save the canines

The Jersey Devil flies

There's a picture circulating on the internet showing the famed Jersey Devil in all it's glory flying near some trees. People are going crazy over it.  But looking at it, it is so obviously a fake.  Sometimes I think people will believe anything because you know, if it's on the internet, it HAS to be true LOL.  jersey devil

woman grows her hair long

It's not unusual for a woman to grow her hair long but one woman in China has hair that can wrap around her three times.  She hasn't gotten her hair cut for 35 years and plans to continue growing it.  To her, the long hair is a good luck charm and she hopes to grow it long enough to be in the record books.  long hair

no charges

Walter Palmer will not be charged in Zimbabwe for the killing of Cecil the Lion.  The Environment Minister says that all of his paperwork was in order for the hunt.  Two others who helped with the hunt will be charged though for luring Cecil out of the protected area.  It's disheartening to me that Palmer will get away with killing a protected animal.  I still think he knew exactly what he was doing and is playing stupid so he doesn't get in trouble.  Zimbabwe will allow him to come back to the country but never again as a hunter.  Guess he'll have to find someplace else to prove his manhood. RIP Cecil

always the paramedic

A bride got a call about an accident just an hour after saying "I do."  Her, her husband, and most of the wedding party are first responders and didn't think twice about leaving to help at the scene.  The accident involved family members so she had and even greater reason to be there.  There are a lot of people who are using the word hero but Sarah Ray insists that it's just part of her job.  bride paramedic

stranded dog

Alex Scroggins was helping his mother and sister get things out of their flooded home in Conway, SC when he noticed the neighbor's dog stranded on the porch.  After making several trips to retrieve belongings, he realized that no one was coming for the dog.  The flood waters were still rising and it wouldn't be long before the dog was swept away to certain death.  Alex rescued the dog who has now been named Lucky and tried to find it a home in a no-kill shelter; but had no success.  The owner knows where the dog is but has no interest in getting it back.  After heartlessly leaving the dog behind, he doesn't deserve it anyway.  Alex has now chosen to adopt Lucky and the dog seems to know how "lucky" it really is.  rescued dog

welcome home

A 2 year old girl couldn't contain herself when she saw her daddy.  He was coming home from a 9 month deployment and during a General's speech, the little girl ran to her father and gave him a knee high hug.  He broke formation to return the hug and then sent her back to mom.  It's a very touching video

walking on glass

In China the latest craze is to build walkways made of glass including the one that is at Yuntai Geological Park in Henan Province.  Apparently someone dropped a steel mug and broke one of the panes of glass.  Walkers screamed and headed off the bridge.  A spokesperson for the tourism board claimed that no one was in danger but the bridge is closed until repairs can be made.  Would you be brave enough to walk on one of these?  glass bridge

pizza for wedding

A pizzeria in Indiana made news when they refused to cater any gay weddings.  They had to close their doors for a while afterwards because of all the backlash.  Then a gofundme page was started and it helped them reopen.  Now they have unknowingly catered a gay wedding.  Robin Trevino traveled from Illinois to the pizza place to purchase some pies.  He then placed them in a cooler for the trip back and they were served later at his renewal ceremony with his partner thus making the pizzeria the caterer at his wedding.  Hate to see him spend money at this business but glad he stuck it to them in a way.  pizza

Bully's attacker in trouble

A high school student at Huntington Beach High School is in trouble after beating a blind student in the head.  Another student stepped in to stop the attack.  One punch put the bully on the ground.  Now the hero is being punished for also using violence.  It just doesn't seem like justice is being served.  It's true that violence is not the answer but to punish him for doing what's right doesn't seem to be the answer.  hero

A Michigan man is showing how NOT to get rid of a spider while at a gas station.  After spotting a spider on his gas tank, the driver used a cigarette lighter to get rid of it.  What happened was that his car and the pump caught on fire.  Luckily no one was word on the spider though.  fire
