A longtime reader and intuitive, Robin Smith, submitted the following narrative. This is a ghost tale that I was not aware of:
Most everyone in the Copiah/Lincoln County area in Mississippi has heard about the "urban legend" of Little Boy Blue. This is the ghost of a little boy wearing overalls in the cemetery on Little Lane in Wesson, MS.
There are different versions of this ghost story. To this day he is un-rested and haunts the cemetery. During an outbreak of Scarlet Fever, a little boy around the age of 5 was a victim of the disease. He died and was buried - his tombstone is in the opposite direction than the rest of the headstones in the cemetery due to regulation of quarantine.
The legend is that if you drive up to the cemetery at night that you must turn off your car engine, headlights and cell phones. Within 10 minutes you will see either a red light or a blue light. If you see a red light that means that he does not like you and you need to leave. There will be a child's hand prints on the vehicle. If you see a blue light, that means that he likes you.
It was around Halloween 2012, I wanted to go to the cemetery and see if I would get the red light or the blue light. I dressed up as a nun, Keith dressed up as a Priest, my daughter Kristy dressed Gothic and our friend Tracy dressed up as a witch. We drove to the cemetery, killed the engine and head lights. We got out of the car and walked into the cemetery. My camera was working just fine. I took several pictures. Tracy's camera was on video. She tried her best to turn off the video so that she could take pictures. After being in the cemetery for 10 minutes, we headed back to the car. We sat there for 10 minutes, we never saw anything. I was thinking to myself, that this is just a story that people made up and there is no such thing as Little Boy Blue. When we got back to my house, I loaded the SD card in my computer. On the first video it was a blue light that went through very quickly. You could hear me & Keith talking in the back ground and then all of a sudden a child whispers, "I am little Boy Blue." We are all true believers now that Little Boy Blue does exist.
Is the blue light in the process of manifesting into an apparition? These screen captures came from a 2 second clip
I wanted to go back in the daylight hours to see if I could capture a picture of Little Boy Blue. As soon as I stepped out of the car, I had a cold sensation that chilled me to the bone. On one picture, I captured the image of a little boy that looks to be around the age of 5. He looks like Huckleberry Finn. He had on a hat, and there is a big tear drop on his face. - Robin Smith
Robin states: 'I can see a little boy peeking from behind the headstone. He has on a hat. He looks like Huckleberry Finn and he has a tear drop on his cheek. Then I see what looks like the Gerber baby. I can see several faces.'
The following report was posted on the MUFON CMS today (12/7/2012). It details an incident in Baltimore City, MD (where I'm located) on 4/12/2010. The reason I'm highlighting this incident is because similar sightings have occurred in and around the Baltimore metro area for several years...including large triangular craft that appear, then quickly disappear. My database currently includes 34 daylight reports in this area since Jan. 1st 2010. The UFOs have all been very large...either dark triangular craft or large white / silver circular craft. Each appear for a few seconds...then suddenly disappear. Many are seen over parks or large shopping complexes. Baltimore is near many government and military installation...are these experimental craft with the ability to cloak? Nick Redfern will be appearing on the radio show this Sunday (Beyond The Edge Radio)...I need to ask for his opinion. Lon
1. I was flying a kite across the street from my house with my girl friend and vary young son. I had kite in air playing for awhile about 15 to 20.
2. As I was flying the kite I notice the flash at me as if the sun bounced if this object in the air and hit me in the eye it was slightly to the right of kite and I said to my girl friend do you see that and at first I thought may be its a trash bag or something for the first few seconds but then I started to have a OMG moment and I said Kas do you see that then said yea and I was looking all around the park for other people and their was some people across the field and across the street working but I tried screaming at them but I could not get their attention. I know this was something not of our making not that I know of.
3. I first thought wth is that and I try to be rash so at first I thought it was a bag from a store cause I seen them get blown up like that but as it was it was moving it just stopped and was hovering. I seen these things on tv and I can point out the kind that I seen that was caught on tape man time those round metallic balls
4,5,6 The Object seemed to be spinning because the way this light kept shinning off of it you could 100% tell it was metallic and what came to my mine was mercy because when it was spinning some times seemed liquid like it would see minor shape changing as if it was liquid but IDK really but since that I had a fascination with mercury. I will even Polly graph for this this was not a blimp a weather balloon. I was so mad that I did not bring my camera because I was going to just to record my son. The Object started moving West then slightly NW then what blew my mind the thing just disappeared right in front of me. Now if we have Military Equipment that can do that I swear who do we need to worry about.
Now me and my girl friend was like omg what was that, that was crazy I mean we just saw something I really kinda believed could exist but I really never believe people be abducted and its thats still not their but you can say seeing is believing. But this story is not done a lady came out of no wear or at least it felt like it but apparently she started walking the track and we talking to her and told her what we saw and asked if she seen anything she said no I just got here. Well I thought about going to get my camera but I figure we get ready to rap it up but we started flying the kite again about 20 minutes later the Object appeared right in front of us again sightly sw to my location and I seen this with my own eyes because it I had my kite in the line of site of the orb I started calling my girl and telling her to look again this time it simply ether reflected light from the spinning in to my eye so and then after about 3 seconds it disappeared and this time I ran home told my step father and grabbed my camera but it did not show. My Girl/wife seen it the first time but the 2nd sighting happened so fast Im not sure if she really seen it or says she did to please me.
I think of trying to fly a kite again and seeing if this will happen again but who know - MUFON CMS
Major quake strikes off Japan, setting off small tsunami
A powerful earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan on Friday evening, rattling buildings in Tokyo and setting off a small tsunami.
It also jarred nerves in a nation still recovering from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 that killed thousands of people and triggered the world's worst nuclear crisis in a quarter century.
Some roads were closed and rail services suspended in the northeastern prefecture of Miyagi, where a one-meter (3-foot) tsunami rolled ashore. It was followed by four other waves ranging from eight to 16 inches. Only minor injuries were reported immediately, including five in Miyagi and five on the outskirts of Tokyo.
Miyagi was one of the areas that suffered the worst of the destruction from the 9.0-magnitude quake and resulting tsunami in 2011.
The weaker, 7.3-magnitude quake on Friday took place further out at sea -- 462 kilometers (287 miles) east-northeast of Tokyo at a depth of 36 kilometers (22 miles) -- the U.S. Geological Survey said, slightly revising the initial location it gave.
It didn't create a widespread threat of a tsunami in the Pacific, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
The massive earthquake and tsunami in 2011 killed more than 15,000 people in Japan. It caused the formation of 30-foot walls of water that swept away rice fields, engulfed entire towns, and tossed houses and cars onto highways.
The combined natural disasters did severe damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, setting off meltdowns at reactors at the facility that contaminated a large area. No damage was reported at the country's nuclear power facilities after Friday's quake.
Radiation levels in fish caught near the area remain high long after the 2011 meltdowns, suggesting contamination from the site might still be seeping into Pacific waters, a U.S. researcher said in October. - CNN

'Crazy woman' on car hood saves holiday lights
An Australian woman who clung to a speeding car to retrieve stolen fairy lights says the thieves were 'scared of the crazy woman on the bonnet'. Marissa Clausen was watching TV in Humpty Doo in the Northern Territory at about 11.45pm on Tuesday when she heard the loud engine of a "bombed-out little white hatchback" with P-plates outside her house.
"I thought: 'What's happening?' and saw three teenagers taking off with the fairy lights," the 30-year-old said. The $25, 20-metre long, solar-powered, multi-coloured LED decorations had been draped along the front fence and there was no way that Ms Clausen was letting them ruin her Christmas. "I ran up and said a few colourful words and stood in front of the car," the educator said.
"They gave me a nudge on my right thigh with the front bumper and I jumped - not jumped, placed myself - on the bonnet. And then they took off with me on the bonnet. You wouldn't think they'd drive off." Ms Clausen said she would have kept her feet on the ground if she knew they were going to drive off. She held on by digging her fingers in the narrow slot between the bonnet hatch and the car body under the windscreen. "They were trying to shake me off by swerving," she said.
"They were saying: 'Get off the car'. As if I was going to get off - they were driving at 60 or 70km/h." She banged her right heel off the gravel in the ordeal but was otherwise uninjured. The thieves, two girls - one driving - and a boy aged between 13 and 17, then threw the fairy lights out the window and stopped to let Ms Clausen climb off the car - before speeding away and switching off their headlamps. She turned off the fairy lights to avoid detection and walked back to wait on the veranda. "I think they were scared of the crazy woman on the bonnet," she said. - NT News
This is one of several pics that my buddy got on his game camera back in November. It came by on November 11 and then again on November 18. Has anyone else seen anything like this before?
No location was provided, which is understandable. I'd like to say that this is it a Bigfoot-like hominid, though it is rather odd in appearance. Frankly...the legs and the body type remind me of the 'Goatman' descriptions from Prince Georges Co, Maryland back in the 1970s. Is this an image of a unknown humanoid? It could very well be. I'm currently investigating several sightings of strange humanoids (that resemble Bigfoot-type hominids) near unidentified flying craft that descended to the ground. There have been footprints similar to Bigfoot as well as another unknown being that has prints that resemble those of a turkey or chicken...but over 12" in length and width! That report is forthcoming...as soon as the timeline of the sightings and encounters have been established and recorded. Stay tuned...Lon

I received the following email from one of the library staff in September 2009:
I captured a couple of unusual photos from the Children's Room of the Willard Library ghost cam on September 13th.
I'm familiar with pareidolia but had some trouble debunking the pictures. The camera only refreshes every 10 minutes or so, and I'm reluctant at this point to say that these two photos captured a genuine ghost.
I've looked at this particular web cam for years without incident, but wondered what your opinion was.
History of the Willard Library
More than 110 years old, Willard Library is the oldest public library building in the state of Indiana. The library, housed in a beautiful Victorian Gothic building in Evansville, is nestled gloriously near the downtown area of this southwestern Indiana city of 130,000 people, providing a sharp contrast with the modern high-rises and six-lane freeways.
The Willard Library Ghost Cams were inspired by the question "Is Willard Library Haunted?" It has become a fascinating, and somewhat credible, legend that drives thousands of people to search the library for remnants of lost spirits. The site is a virtual ghost hunting mecca. Take a virtual tour of the library with Greg Hager, Willard Library Director, and see if you can locate the cams hidden in the building. Libraryghost.com offers three cams for your ghost hunting pleasure. According to reports from visitors, some of the most frequent encounters with the legendary Lady in Grey have occurred in the children's reading room in the basement of Willard Library.
The first reported incident happened sixty years ago to a library employee who trekked through the snowy cold for his nightly duty. Since then, countless other employees and patrons have reported seeing this apparition, each giving an eerily similar description. Is the legend true? We'll leave that for you to decide.
The Grey Lady ghost was first reported to have been seen in Willard Library in the late 1930s by a custodian. Since that time, those looking—and not looking—for the apparition have reported unexplained events and sights.
The Grey Lady was last reportedly sighted on August 10, 2010 in the basement hallway by the Assistant Children’s Librarian. Psychics visiting the library in 2007 say they were able to verify that a ghost has been there, and paranormal investigative groups have brought in equipment designed to locate it.
Several library employees have reported seeing the ghost, including Margaret Maier, Children’s Librarian, and Helen Kamm, Library Assistant.
During a visit to the library, lecturers from the University of Southern Indiana say they saw the ghost peering into water.
Policemen responding to a security alarm at the library spotted two ghosts in an upstairs window of the library.
A library patron reported an encounter with the Grey Lady in the library elevator, and a local weathercaster also reported an encounter with the spirit.
Hundreds of people look for the Grey Lady every October, during Ghost Tours sponsored by the library. Eight—hundred curious individuals attended the first such tour in the late 1990s, which have been a popular annual event ever since. Check the calendar of library events for upcoming tours. - Library Ghost - Tracking the Grey Lady
NOTE: In 1937, a janitor in the library claimed to have seen a ghostly veiled lady dressed in glowing grey standing before him while he was on duty. He was more shocked when he managed to bend down and saw that even the shoes of the lady were grey. Before the janitor recovered by the frightening event he encountered, the lady disappeared.
Several former and recent staffs at Willard have claimed seeing a grey lady apparition that appears suddenly and vanishes to nowhere.
Bettye Miller, who used to be a librarian at Willard, reportedly heard water running forcefully on the second floor when she was alone after closing time of the library. She went on to investigate what she had noticed and discovered that the faucet in the bathroom was turned itself on mysteriously.
Tri-State Genealogy Society members also experienced paranormal activity at the library. Two members of the society, who worked alone in the library, reportedly smelling a strong scent of heavy perfume during their research work at the cemetery record section.
Margaret Maier, an employee at Willard, claimed that the lady in grey was being disrupted by the construction and followed her on the way to her home during the Children’s Room’s renovation. She and her sister felt a cold air touching their skin and smelled a strong scent of heavy perfume.
There are many speculations on the origin of the lady in grey. Some say the lady ghost was migrated from the cemetery located near the library. Others believe that the woman died in the place where the library is situated during her early days. Another opinion about the lady is that the lady is the ghost of Louise Carpenter, the daughter of the library’s founder who lost a lawsuit against the Board of Trustees of the library claiming that her father was not in his right mind in donating the library to the public.

Large explosion over Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island
While authorities still do not know the source, residents are sticking to their story saying they heard a large explosion coming from Narragansett Bay Monday night.
Reports of the phantom boom kept crews busy in both Barrington and Warwick after residents reported hearing the strange disruption around 11:30 p.m.
“I was downstairs in my basement, I have small windows, and I was able to see a flash of light and it was basically the biggest explosion I’ve ever heard in my whole life,” said Mark Etheridge, an eyewitness who lives near Narragansett Bay in Barrington.
"It shook the windows and made my neighbors alert too. The only way to describe it was like a single loud 'boom' noise that sounded somewhat like an explosion," said an Eyewitness News viewer via ReportIt.
"I thought it was the loudest thunder in the world..we all were jousted but the humm. was scary," wrote Patti Cicerone on WPRI.com's Facebook page.
Several local police and fire departments investigated, even sending boats out on to the bay. But, nothing was ever found.
“I’ve heard a transformer blow, but this thing was ten times that. My whole house shook,” added Etheridge.
"I thought 'oh my God, it must have been a gas explosion, and somebody's house blew up," said Mary McKenna. "That's what it sounded like."
According to investigators, the source of the noise remains a mystery. - WPRI
North Korean leader nervous about security
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has apparently stationed around 100 armored vehicles at his house, summer home and other facilities for fear of a military coup or uprising, sources say.
Kim "is extremely nervous about the possibility of an emergency developing inside North Korea," claimed an informed source.
According to the source, Kim recently ordered officials to "place top priority" on his personal security and to keep his itinerary top secret. As a result, the venues of events he attends are swarming with guards carrying automatic rifles and hand grenades, while his personal plainclothes bodyguards can also be spotted carrying long, black bags apparently containing heavy weapons.
Security agents cordon off areas surrounding events attended by Kim and confiscate watches and cigarettes from pedestrians. Mobile phone signals are also jammed.
On July 26, all mobile phone signals in downtown Pyongyang were jammed from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. while Kim attended a performance marking the 59th anniversary of the armistice in the 1950-53 Korean War.
The security service, which runs its own university, established a three to six-month course to train surveillance experts.
"Kim Jong-un desperately needs to bolster his personal security detail due to mounting opposition to his efforts to rein in the military," said one diplomatic source.
North Korea continues to import riot-control equipment from China, including helmets, bulletproof vests, road blocks and tear gas, for fear of public unrest.
North Korea watchers say there is growing public discontent with the young leader. There has apparently been a surge in disobedience and a lack of discipline in the military. Sources say military officers grumble at the appointment of Choe Ryong-hae as director of the People's Army General Political Bureau, a top military position, despite the fact that he has no military experience.
"Choe appointed members from the Socialist Youth League, where he comes from, to key military posts and has assumed control of various businesses run by the military, losing trust and loyalty among the troops," the source said.
The abrupt sacking of former Army chief Ri Yong-ho in July has also damaged morale in the military, which was allowed to metastasize into a state within the state under former leader Kim Jong-il's "military-first" doctrine.
Veteran officials in the North's Workers Party are also unhappy with the young leader's confusing reshuffles and impulsive orders. They apparently complain secretly that the inexperienced leader is "running wild."
Kim's efforts since June to improve the North's economy floundered on fierce opposition from party hardliners afraid of losing their grip on power. High-ranking party officials ignore Kim's orders and write them off as unrealistic, and are instead busy watching their backs or looking for ways to make money, the source said.
"Even Kim Jong-un as the ruler of the notorious North Korean regime cannot unleash an unrestrained reign of terror," said one intelligence official here. "He probably chose to launch a rocket now to gain some credibility." - Chosun
More Doomsday Conjecture: 'Sun UFOs and December 21 Mayan Calendar Doomsday Connected?'
Some recent NASA/SOHO images are reportedly showing more unidentified flying objects (UFOs) around the sun. And these UFOs may even have something to do with the marked December 21 on the Mayan Calendar. How are UFOs linked to doomsday predictions?
"UFOs are orbiting the suns corona, but for what purpose?" Scott Waring, a known UFO resource person, asks in his web site, UFO Sightings Daily.
Waring offers some creative speculations as to what could be the UFOs' purpose around the sun. He accepts, however, that a solid science institution such as NASA is not likely to discuss solar UFOs.
"Perhaps [the UFOs are] harvesting something from the sun or perhaps [the UFOs carry] a race of reptilian aliens that need the intense sunlight to survive. Either way, NASA is not about to discuss these UFOs even though they were first reported back in 2010 by Russian scientists."
Waring further notes that previously spotted UFOs appear to be smaller and fewer than those observed recently. He even connects these solar UFO sightings to predictions linked to December 21, 2012 - the purported last day in a Mayan calendar cycle.
"If you compare the size of the UFOs and the number, there seems to be a large increase in both...and with Dec 21, 2012 approaching, it makes me wonder what they are doing to the sun."
Did Waring just connect UFOs to the much publicized Mayan calendar doomsday?
Waring is not the only one who connects UFOs to December 21 Mayan calendar doomsday predictions.
A cult, which apparently believes the world will end on December 21, 2012, believes that a mystic mountain in southern France is housing a space shuttle for extraterrestrial creatures. This UFO is believed to be mankind's hope for survival after Earth's doomsday. - IB Times
A give way sign which has had an alien painted on it near a Devon village has been criticised as "criminal damage" by the local council.
An unknown person painted the alien on the sign near Chawleigh. It was previously adorned with a dinosaur.
Village resident Julie, who did not give her surname, said: "We've loved them both and it just gives us a bit of happiness and hilarity in the local area. We don't think we've got aliens, we don't think we've got dinosaurs but you never know."
In a statement, Devon County Council said: "This is an illegal sign that has been put up as some sort of joke. However, can we remind people that this constitutes criminal damage and can be off-putting for motorists driving along the road." Devon and Cornwall Police has not yet commented. - BBC
Richard Dolan Teaches Rare Ufology Class Online
Vienna, WV, December 04, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The International Metaphysical University (IMU) is proud to announce a ground-breaking, ufology class taught by Richard Dolan, one of the world’s leading UFO researchers and historians.
Richard Dolan is offering something never seen before in any academic setting, anywhere else in the world: a complete and fresh study of the entire UFO phenomenon.
Through a series of twelve riveting lectures, Richard Dolan provides up-to-date information and analysis relating to:
1. The full history of UFOs, from ancient times to our own era, focusing on the most significant and instructive cases.
2. The political issues, such as the how the U.S. government and the military and intelligence communities deal with UFOs. This includes the issue of whether some UFOs are made by “us” and what might be the true structure of secrecy.
3. The philosophical and investigative problems brought about by UFOs, including how ordinary objects and events might fool us, and how they differ from “true UFOs.” Moreover, in an age of the internet, Facebook and Youtube, when information practically overwhelms us, how to separate fact from fiction, legitimate issues from fear-mongering or fantasy-peddling.
4. The science behind UFOs, from propulsion technologies to space travel to consciousness itself.
5. The beings behind the phenomenon, whoever and whatever they are. The history and claims of contact, explores the nature of that contact, and asks pertinent questions about just who and what we are dealing with.
6. A look into the future, especially focusing on such issues as disclosure. Can UFO secrecy ever really end, and if so, what might a post-disclosure world look like?
A year in the making, this course is truly special. If you have ever had an interest in exploring the UFO issue, you cannot get off to a better start than this course: an instant classic.
