My Heart Sails With You


Hi folks...this will be the only post offered until Monday. I have some odds & ends to work on in relation to our future move to Pennsylvania. I appreciate your indulgence.

The following account was forwarded to me in 2011. Enjoy your weekend:


Hello – my husband and I had an experience that we just cannot explain. An associate at work suggested I write you so that you (or your readers) may be able to help us comprehend what has happened and if we are in any peril.

Last Autumn, my husband and I took a 7-day cruise vacation that left from Port Canaveral, Florida with ports of call in the eastern Caribbean. We really needed a break because of work stress and the constant activity endured by us helping to plan our daughter’s wedding. The cruise was going along nicely and as anticipated.

The final port of call was in Philipsburg, St. Maarten. I was looking forward to this destination since my sister had visited there previously. We has arranged for a catamaran sail as part of our day-long stop at port. After walking around the town for a few hours we reached the tour company that provided the catamaran ride to a small island a few miles from Philipsburg. It was a delightful excursion to and from the island with food and drink as well as pleasant interaction with the crew. But there was one aspect of this small trip that needs to be emphasized.

My husband and I took a walk on the beach of the small island (I forget the name of the island) and, after a while, decided to take a breather on a small outcrop of rocks. We sat and talked about dinner that evening and hoped we’d be able to be seated at a nice local restaurant since we had not made reservations. As we talked, my husband noticed something between several of the rocks. He reach down a pulled up a large ring that looked very old and seemed to be made of gold. We examined it and noticed that the design on the face was that of a bird and what looked like a lightning bolt. There was an inscription inside the band that read ‘Mes voiles coeur avec vous - Manon – 1723’ (Translates: My heart sails with you – Manon – 1723). I can speak French so I was able to translate the inscription.

My husband, who is a high school history teacher, speculated that it may have belonged to a French privateer at one time. He said that he’d wait and have it looked at when we returned home to Chicago. He placed it in his pocket and we continued with our day. We spent the late evening in our cabin relaxing on our cabin balcony and conversing about our trip.

The next morning, there was a knock on our cabin door. I looked at the clock - it was 7:15 am. My husband got up and answered the door. He was talking with our cabin steward whose voice I recognized. We invited him inside – he was quite distressed. He explained that the couple in the cabin beside ours had a terrible experience the previous evening and that they insisted we were responsible. We were very surprised by this information because we had never met this couple. The cabin steward explained that the couple did not want to cause trouble but they insisted that they talk to us. We agreed to meet them.

About an hour later, after we showered and had some breakfast, we walked next door to the couples’ cabin – the cabin steward accompanied us. A young woman answered the door, introduced herself to us and asked that we sit down. She was very nervous. I asked if anyone else would be talking with us. She explained that her companion was very wary of us and wanted to avoid our presence. My husband and I looked at each other in amazement. What had we done to incite fear in this couple?

A few seconds later, my husband motioned for me to look at the dresser. I turned and looked. The ring we had found the previous day was on the dresser. My husband turned to the young woman and asked “does that ring belong to you?” She started to cry, then she shouted “take it back and leave!” My husband stood up and said ‘wait one second’ as he turned towards the door and walked out. I knew where he was going – he was looking for the ring in our cabin. I looked at the young woman and said “look, what is going on here?” She did not answer.

The cabin steward suspected what was happening and said "if this is a theft, I need to report it.” I asked him to wait until my husband returned. Soon after, my husband walked backed into the cabin and said “it’s gone.” The young woman looked up and said, “yeah, we took it last night.” After assuring her that we would not report or prosecute the theft, she calmed down and explained what happened.

The young woman stated that the previous evening her and her companion were walking back to their cabin when then noticed my husband and I were getting ready to enter our cabin. My husband had reached into his pocket to retrieve the keycard and when he did, the ring somehow came out and fell to the floor. Neither one of us had noticed it but the couple both saw it hit the floor and bounce over to the opposite wall. After we had entered our cabin the couple picked up the ring and decided that it was now theirs.

As she continued to describe what had happened, she become more emotional as tears rolled down her face. She explained that after they had gone to sleep, the cabin lit up as bright as the morning sun – so bright that it woke both of them. Then they noticed deep horrific growling sounds coming from across the cabin near the sofa. As they watched, a woman in a billowy pink dress began to manifest before them. They were totally terrified and unable to speak or move. The apparition moved towards them and hovered above the bed. As it’s bright yellow eyes gazed upon them a voice rang out ‘Donner mon Seigneur son anneau!’ and again ‘Donner mon Seigneur son anneau !’ (Translated: Give my Lord his ring). The spectre continued to speak the same words until it finally faded away and the room turned dark.

“Now, take the ring and leave. I beg you not to report this.” I looked at the cabin steward. He was in shock - holding a rosary and praying under his breath. My husband said “Let’s go.” He grabbed the ring and we walked back to our cabin.

We talked about the ring and what we would do with it. We contemplated throwing it into the ocean. Then we wondered if there was historical value and if to donate it to a museum or university. That was five months ago and we still possess the ring. My husband said that he would like to have it researched but has yet done nothing. The ring is in a safety deposit box and it will remain there – just in case some of the young woman’s story was true.

NOTE: I never received a follow-up from the witnesses. Lon

Apparition / UFO Encounter - Watertown, Wisconsin


I recently received the following eyewitness account:

Hi Lon,

I live in Watertown, Wisconsin, which is in Jefferson county. Back in the fall of 2002 I was 17 years old and had an experience with six or seven friends on County Road Y. The encounter was an apparition and a UFO sighting/landing within 20 to 30 minutes of each other.

The night began with a group of friends coming over to my parent's house on County Road Y. It was a foggy night, so my friends and I were riding our bikes up and down the road ahead of my parent's house. The property was an old farm and the main part of the house was a log cabin built in the 1840s. There was a big barn and garages sitting on about five acres. As we were riding our bikes in front of the barn on the road, one of my friends said 'what is that thing?' We all looked and it was a figure of a women with a big hat and old time garb. She was orange-like in color and just a tad see-through. The weirdest thing was the very jerky movements she was making. It seemed like her movement was like a skipping of a record or something like that - very choppy. It was creepy to say the least. We watched the women for awhile. None of us six or seven teenagers were too scared for some reason and we all watched it for a few minutes and then went back to riding bikes.

About 20 minutes later my friend Josh pointed out a very bright white light in the sky. We stopped riding our bikes to look at it. Josh pulled out a laser pointer pen and shined it at the light. The light then made a huge "J" shape in the sky. No airplane or helicopter could fly fast enough to make a giant "J" shape in the sky that fast. So after making the "J" in in the sky, we heard an extremely loud wooshing sound almost like a huge turbine or engine was shutting off. It seemed like the object had landed in a back field. That did scare all of us teenagers and we ran as fast as we could into my parent's house and stayed there for the night. The whole night had a strange vibe to it. I will never forget it. Thank you, JM

NOTE: I do believe there is a relationship between paranormal phenomena...many cryptids, ghosts, UFOs, non-terrestrials being, etc. have been seen together or in close proximity. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: Mother Films 'Ghost' in Baby's Cot -- Alien or Ghost? -- Mysterious Martian 'Cauliflower'


Mother Films 'Ghost' in Baby's Cot

Jade Yates got the shock of her life when she saw something unusual sharing her daughter Ruby's cot.

The footage, which was later uploaded online, shows what appears to be a human-like shape next to the sleeping child which dissipates and reforms several times throughout the video. According to Yates, the door to the room had been closed and nobody else had been there at the time.

She also believes that the footage shows two spirits - one a small child and the other an adult.

"Ruby was not unsettled at all," she said. "But she does wake every hour or so at night maybe this is why, someone wanting to play. I don't think they are nasty as the adult looks to be so attentive."

The footage, which can be viewed below, has so far wracked up over one million hits online.

Alien or Ghost?

Florida - 11/23/2015: It was around 3-4 in the morning. I was sleeping and all the sudden something woke me up. When I opened my eyes I saw a tall man walking back and forth in front of my bed. He was really tall about more than 7'-8'. I can hardly see his face, I just saw the figure. It is good to know that my bedroom door was half opened and a light comes from the living room. That is why I saw the silhouette and not his face.

I sit on the bed and check my husband to see if it was him (my husband is not too tall) but first I saw something moving so fast from side to side. It was not my husband, when I looked back that being was not there. Then I go back to sleep again but as soon as I put my head on the pillow I saw the being again. He was moving in the same way as before. I tried to see his face but I couldn't. Then I started feeling like a lethargy as hard that I can't handled it and got sleep.

I did not feel any fear, I am just concerned why he was moving back and forth like he wanted something to happen. He was like desperate. - MUFON CMS

She Only Loved His (Dead) Body....

Incarcerated cult leader Charles Manson has long had adoring women sending him love letters, even though he has no chance of parole. Twenty-seven-year-old Afton Elaine Burton, who goes by the nickname “Star,” got closer than most to the psycho. She began writing and visiting Manson, bringing him toiletries and posing with him for photos, telling the world they were in love. They even got a marriage license and were going to tie the knot, when Manson abruptly called it off. The official reason was due to “an interruption in logistics," but Manson expert Daniel Simone says it was called off because the marriage was a ruse to gain legal control of his corpse after he died and display it as a tourist attraction.

Mysterious Martian 'Cauliflower' May Be the Latest Hint of Alien Life

The hunt for signs of life on Mars has been on for decades, and so far scientists have found only barren dirt and rocks. Now a pair of astronomers thinks that strangely shaped minerals inside a Martian crater could be the clue everyone has been waiting for.

In 2008, scientists announced that NASA’s Spirit rover had discovered deposits of a mineral called opaline silica inside Mars's Gusev crater. That on its own is not as noteworthy as the silica’s shape: Its outer layers are covered in tiny nodules that look like heads of cauliflower sprouting from the red dirt.

No one knows for sure how those shapes—affectionately called “micro-digitate silica protrusions”—formed. But based on recent discoveries in a Chilean desert, Steven Ruff and Jack Farmer, both of Arizona State University in Tempe, think the silica might have been sculpted by microbes. At a meeting of the American Geophysical Union in December, they made the case that these weird minerals might be our best targets for identifying evidence of past life on Mars.

If the logic holds, the silica cauliflower could go down in history as arguably the biggest discovery ever in astronomy. But biology is hard to prove, especially from millions of miles away, and Ruff and Farmer aren’t claiming victory yet. All they’re saying is that maybe these enigmatic growths are mineral greetings from ancient aliens, and someone should investigate.
