I've retired early on terms inside my control. This has given me more time with family, hobbies and health.

The paradox of my life has been that I'm a "born skeptic with an open mind". Maybe we can all share our experiences and have a bit of a laugh along the way.

Yes - I'm an "Aussie" that thinks he knows a bit about the world but always willing to learn more.

A Lesson For The Prankster on 2017-12-20

The experiences I am about to relate, happened a long time ago and are seen through the eyes of a naïve 11 year old boy. In my attempt to stick to the truth, there may be parts that are vague, please just put this down to father time defeating my old memory. I am the 11 year old, with two brother...

Deja Vu Driving on 2017-11-09

Not sure whether my experience is quite right for this site (no poetry intended) but in the strict sense of the word it was something other than normal that did not fit into my comfortable skeptic world. I grew up next to Manly Beach in Sydney (Australia), so it was no surprise to my parents that...

Ghost In The Wire? on 2017-10-21

In the summer of January 1989, I was the supervisor of approximately thirty maintenance technicians for a large Australian telephone company, based in Sydney's northern suburbs. Our function was to detect, isolate and fix faults on our customers' telephone lines. To be successful in our roles, we...

So good to know you're still out there and you're travelling around. The Dandenongs used to be a center for 'Arts and Crafts' when I was down there (many years ago). I do remember visiting Ballarat and its gardens were beautiful.

As for Nabiac, it had the highest fatal car accident rate of any town on the Pacific Highway. My surfing buddy (ambulance officer) and me (surf lifesaver) would stop and render assistance at some horrific head on car accidents, always just before Nabiac on a straight part of the highway. I would not be surprised to learn of lost spirits roaming the neighboring countryside.

My fear of the lightning and thunder dream was overcome by finding out all I could on the phenomena and now fear has been replaced by fascination.

If you are into reading a good short story on line, look up 'The Color Out of Space' by HP Lovecraft but not before publishing Part 3.

My intention in this comment is not to scare you or cause you undue anxiety. On the contrary, it is more about your boy's sight and protective instincts.

It appears that in the Christian religion, the sign of the skull symbolizes mortality and death. Being asleep in the cot when this 'skull' appeared, makes me wonder if your boy's scream (waking up his little sister) was the factor that saved her from harm. I'm thinking SIDS.

Looking at the date this occurred (approximately 3 years ago) I'm assuming that your daughter is now at least 3 years old and therefore well outside the statistical age bracket for this occurrence.

I think you have an extraordinary little boy with an awesome gift.

I'm not the type that says much about my religion (that's personal) but I pray that both your children are healthy and have a bright future ahead of them.

Thank you 'Chanced' for your comments that put me on the road to reading this most amazing account by 'groundzero7'. It was informative, foreboding, grievous yet uplifting.

Yeh, I also put 'groundzero7' and this account straight into my favorites. This may be the best submission that I have read so far.

I really appreciate you sharing this experience with us.

Cuz Sophie,

Agree with Jubeele, rule out the mundane incidents and what do you have left?

I say this in all seriousness as I've read too many accounts where answers in this world are not considered before assuming it is a paranormal manifestation.

Sensitivity to EMF seems the likely culprit for your headaches and humming (tinnitus). Your dishwasher seems to be the most likely source of the EMF.

There are also written accounts from SAS Officers who have had to covertly break into occupied houses. In an 'air tight' house, opening the front door changes the air pressure in that house causing doors to slam shut. Covert turns into something 'noisy' very quickly. You mentioned that your boyfriend heard the upstairs door slam, as well as the house being secure. Is it possible that your boyfriend, entering the house, may have caused a pressure change in the house, causing the door to slam?

OK, that leaves the bacon sandwich. I'm not impressed with who or whatever made this. No BBQ or Spicy Tomato sauce - needs some lessons.

On the upside, a ghost or faery that not only makes brekkie but cleans up afterwards, I really want to believe this can happen and send one Australia's way as well.


Jubeele and me have been watching the local T20 cricket and Aussie Open Tennis. Actually I'm watching as Jubeele's asleep.

Have a look on email and we"ll catchup tomorrow.

Good to see you

Emma and Mack,

You may have guessed that I'm a closet 'weather geek' as well. From the information at hand, I came to two conclusions.

1. This may have been a 'Microburst', a more localized phenomenon but just as destructive. Dr 'Ted' Fugita first discovered and named these events while studying damage patterns from reported tornadoes. As per Emma's article spiral verses straight line damage. The link below will give you an idea of microburst winds and their power (particularly the fifth film clip).


2. The insurance company pays out less on straight line wind damage than tornado damage (my apologies, I just had a 'tongue in cheek' moment). I've now discounted this conclusion'

I'll have to catch up with you sometime Mack, the Auckland Tornado got me on the path of finding out more about Tornadoes and Waterspouts.

I'm glad that you are still posting.

I can't shake the feeling that your dream had strong parallels to your situation at that time but could have been interpreted either way - to not go ahead or go ahead with the baptism.

As for what IT said to you (I will not name it) I would remember that it deceived you once with it's form and I'm sure tried a second time with it's parting shot - but guess what... It didn't work.

Hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and mine is keep the experiences coming, particularly if they involve time slips, ghost particles, tornado's and paranormal entities.

By the way, the insurance company was probably referring to a 'dericho' or 'down burst'. They are both as destructive as a tornado and can emanate from the same super cell (storm cell). Here is one of the links (if your interested).

Hi Emma,

I found a reference to the 1998 East Texas Tornado Outbreak, which generated 8 tornados from the afternoon of April 30 to the morning of May 1. Did your incredibly lucky escape happen on the morning of May 1?

A force that can twist a tree off at the stump and drive it head first into a house is 'hand of god' stuff.

That a power decided to save your boy makes me wonder whether he is destined to do something great in his life (or already has - making his mum very happy).

Melda and Manafon,

Agree, nasty, spiteful and loves the rush of doing something naughty and getting away with it.

They still have a ways to go to be judge and jury as these people are known - only the executioner is hooded.

One day a real life challenge will teach them humility and what's really important in life. Amen.

This is like a postscript to this encounter.

We did a 'drive by' of Jubeele's new work location today and surprised ourselves as to how close to 'Arthur's' house it is!

The house looks so different (not as dark as it once was). We paid our respects to Arthur with an Aussie style 'Gidday Mate' and drove on happy in the fact that some old houses don't get bulldozed and turned into car parks. 😊

Now where did the bus go? Whoops, different story.

I suspect that your burning ears picked up on Big T-Rex thinking that he might go to your place and clean up any bad people.

However after last night, I've decided to keep T-Rex close to deal with any negative tooth fairies.

I'll still be cruising the site and you know how to contact Jubeele.

Big T-Rex is looking forward to some white lightening.

Thanks Melda for your support,

The timing and therefore the intent is fairly obvious. This is not about just not agreeing with a comment or comments.

As I've commented before, hand out a negative or positive karma point and let's discuss why. After all, most of us are adults and should be able to hold a robust discussion, while observing respect for others.

Let's do our best to keep this site great.

Melda and Val,

Big T-Rex here. Love looking after all of you. I've put on a bit of weight while in SA, looking after Aunty Melda. The bad people taste yummy.

Rex-T's secret name is Rastas Pittwater.

I can always go to Fergie's place.

You are all safe

Thank you lady-glow.

I'm sure Jubeele and myself will be up for the 'rites of passage' challenge. Hmmm... Let me qualify that remark, as long as the challenge does not require any death defying feats (I've had a 'gut full' of them) or burning any unfortunates at the stake.

Now down to business!

I'm bringing tonic water with a twist of lime (time for a change from soda water) and Jubeele has whipped up another batch of pot stickers with her famous dipping sauce. This will mean that Big T-Rex with be lurking around the bus.

Don't worry Puff, he is very good at pushing buses that run out of gas, looking after 'good people' and dealing with 'bad people'.

Thanks again,
Jubeele, Rex-T and Big T-Rex 😁

Hi everyone,

I'm a neutral observer on this story. Why? I am not qualified to give views on a subject that I know nothing about (Witches in Texas).

I did go for a look on Google and found the sites that lady-glow and Rook posted recently.

I don't know why but I kept going and found another site that talked about Bittick Cemetery and a woman (who is named Elizabeth) that was hung for either being a witch, stealing a horse or being a Unionist. This all sounds familiar.

Anyway, the link to the site as follows,

My brother adopted quite a few 'strays' and they all sauntered into our lives by the back garden, just as you described.

When it was time to say goodbye to my favorite, I was devastated. My wife pointed out to me that we had probably extended her life by 5 to 10 years, which eased the pain a bit.

I agree with all of Emma's comments. Toffee may have come back to check on you and try to let you know that he was ok.

Hey, I'm no mechanic either but when you put the facts together, this is one possibility. I believe newer cars are now built to ensure this will not happen but if you're still driving the same car' it wouldn't hurt to get it checked at your next service.

A bit like lady-glow, my favorite aunty would stop at old cemeteries on the way to her holiday destination. She was armed with a note pad and pen, which she would write down any information on grave stones. She admitted this to me once and told me how the town's history would come alive from the dates and stories on the head stones.

Her theory was that it wasn't ghoulish doing this, as the stories on the stones were meant to be read by all.

Of course, she only did this in the daytime and any spirit would realize what a beautiful and caring person she is.

I think you were very lucky that whatever happened at the mausoleum spurred you into action.

I'm no doctor but I was a trained lifesaver and I suspect that at the mausoleum you were exhibiting early stages of hypothermia and (as you stated) your mind was in shut down mode, leading to coma.

The incredible thing is that you appeared to stumble from the pan and into the fire.

Your car shut up tight, engine running, heater at max, you sleep for a long time and wake up with a headache? Ever had your car's heater checked for leaks of carbon monoxide?

I've got this feeling that you somehow escaped a Near Fatal Encounter twice.

I'm glad you've given up the ghost hunting.

Thanks to Google, I see what you mean!

Well, I learnt something new today. Rock on SA Folk dancing.

This is the second time I've read of a link between SA and Sweden.

There's history here.
