Hubbard Lake, located about thirty miles south of Alpena in the north east corner of the state, is a vacation paradise.

Not only are the sunset beautiful, the lake is filled with fish that just love to be caught.

Temperatures in the winter can often hover at thirty-five below zero, the summers are much more agreeable with temperatures in the seventies and eighties, occasionally a low temperature in the forties can be experienced, even in July.

Quiet Vacation spot

Comfortable cabins are available for rental on a daily or weekly rate.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way, he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Aborigine Beliefs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The aborigines believe that when we visit a place we leave an image, and a person trained to see that image can follow some one regardless of the terrain or how long they have been gone. Their teachings show many examples of such happenings, as well as casting spells on someone thousands of miles away, the victim affected by it even though he has no conscious knowledge of the spell being cast.

Is There A Connection Between Mood Altering Drugs and Transgenders

 

Recently an associate mentioned to me that when kids are given mood altering drugs such as Ritalin, it not only alters their mood but in reality, puts them in a continuous stupor.

The mind altering drugs such as Ritalin can also dull their sexual drive, as a result, some, when reaching their teenage formative years then resort to cocaine and other drugs to lift them up and make them feel good.

In today’s world, there seems to be an awful lot of people, even teen, who are resorting to becoming a transgender. 

Is is possible that because of the drug use, both legal and illegal, that their minds are being altered in such a way to make them confused about their own sexuality? 

Just a thought and I’m sure the medical community will disavow this, but maybe sometime in the future, the truth will come out.

Saint Lucia is considered part of the Windward Islands and gets its name from the French who named it after St. Lucy of Syracuse. The first inhabitants were the Native American Arawaks.

Being An Aborigine

The aborigines of Australia, an interesting culture

 

Many areas of the Aboriginal way of life is misunderstood.

Being an aborigine is a way of life or religion, more than a race, anyone can adapt the ways of the aborigine and become an aborigine.

The true aborigine is Caucasian. when some of them took their shirt off, their chests were white. They are dark because they have lived in the sun for thousands of years.

The Mystery of the Pyramids

 

Many legends and much speculation in Egyptian mythology surround the pyramids and why they were built, as well as to how they were built. They have been described as being burial tombs for the pharaohs and Egyptian Gods, giant observatories, ceremonial sites where many ancient rituals were performed, and many other functions. Although it is my understanding that no one has ever been found buried in a pyramid, all of the other functions seem to make sense. The giant pyramid, or pyramid of Cheops(Khufu), is perfectly aligned with the four cardinal points of the earth, following and extending one line along the base, it would pass through Bethlehem, another line would extend through Stonehenge in England. Various points line up perfectly with different constellations that were of importance to the ancient Egyptians.

Much has been written trying to explain how they were built, using pulleys, ramps, and thousands of workman to construct them, not much of it makes sense. Built on the highest ground for miles, it’s hard to visualize how ramps could have been built, also, there would still be evidence of the ramps. In an extremely arid climate, structures and the evidence of structures last for thousands of years. The tremendous manpower needed to build the edifices would have been staggering, how do you move a stone, some of which weigh 40 tons and are as large as a train locomotive up a ramp three hundred feet high?

Probably the most logical explanation as to how they were built, when they were built, and by whom is also the most illogical. Many legends persist that they were built by either extraterrestrials or refugees from Atlantis, who escaped to Egypt when their land sank beneath the sea some twelve thousand years ago. Theoretically, either could be true. There is much evidence that planet earth has been visited many times by life forms from beyond our galaxy and there is also evidence of a land existing in the Atlantic  Ocean before our present era.

How were they built, only time will tell.
