Location of Sighting: Cache Creek. Number of witnesses: 2 Number of objects: 1 Shape of objects: NA
HBCC UFO Research Note: Well from the sounds of things there may have been a Sasquatch hit by a truck on the Highway. This "alleged" incident I hope to have more information on this if possible. Or will see if this incident is for real or what. Also I am not sure if there is an RCMP Detachment in Cache Creek. I know there is one in Ashcroft. Just so everyone understands, I am having a bit of a problem with this story myself. But I thought I would throw this out there just in case. Also since I am doing something on Sasquatch, I had a tiny report come in over another "alleged" Bigfoot sighting at mile 238 near Fort Greely.
Full Description of event/sighting: So here's what I know so far. About an hour and a half ago my dad was following a pickup, just this side of Cache Creek. The pickup swerved, then dad heard a bang and the pickup stopped. Dad pulled over and got out to help not knowing what kind of animal the guy hit. The 2 of them got closer and there was this big hairy thing laying in the road, arms halfway down his legs and huge hands and feet and was walking upright before the guy hit it. It smelt really bad and was making strange noises, the guys pickup was quite damaged but still drivable. Dad helped the guy load this animal into the back of the pickup (which had a canopy) and they were taking it to the RCMP in Cache Creek to find out what the heck it is. It was still alive as it was making noises, but it was knocked out and injured. Dad has never seen anything like it before, be watching the news tonight everyone!

Transient Lunar Phenomena
Transient lunar phenomena are short-lived lights, colors, or other changes in the appearance of the moon's surface. Reports of such events have been recorded for at least 1,000 years and range from foggy patches to major changes in the lunar landscape. Though some have been observed independently by multiple witnesses or reputable scientists, the vast majority of accounts have come from a single observer or from a single location. What explanations have been given for the phenomena? More...

Wounded Knee Massacre (1890)
The Wounded Knee Massacre was the last major armed conflict between the Lakota Sioux and the US. After the death of Sitting Bull, a band of Sioux, led by Big Foot, fled south, but was captured by the 7th Cavalry on December 28, 1890. The next day, the Sioux were ordered disarmed. During the tension that ensued, a weapon discharged, US troops opened fire, and within minutes almost 200 men, women, and children were dead. This conflict is believed to be responsible for the decline of what movement? More at Free Dictionary...

Sometimes strange and seemingly rather stupid trends afflict large portions of the populace. Well, seemingly large, at least, if whatever trend it is is something that one would notice.
One of these trends has been bothering me for a while now... have you noticed that almost every time there's some imagery or footage of an anomalous nature sourced from NASA, such as the Rover photo of the object shown above or the Shuttle UFO videos that they almost without fail have the term 'leaked' breathlessly added into the post's title or at least the description?
What is up with that? Are all of these people just simply boneheaded and gullible? These are not 'leaked.' As was pointed out elsewhere on the web recently, (can't think where, sorry... Forgetomori, perhaps?), the image above, for example, featured today on Rense, was released by NASA in a press release. Try as one might, you can't 'leak' a press release.
I mean, really, come on...
Same goes for the UFO shots... they're from NASA TV, broadcast to whoever cares to watch. While the "explanations" offered by NASA TV announcers are rather lame and often humorous, the footage that's all over YouTube and similar sites are public releases.
Now, no one can accuse me of not being ripe for a good conspiracy, theory or not, the keyword being good, but, this paranoid misuse of such a term is just silly; and furthermore degrades the credibility of the poster greatly, while giving ammo to the professional and amateur debunker alike.
I've been massively ticked off at NASA and it's contractors for ages now, (ESA, too) what with all they do to hide and obfuscate data, seemingly from the get go, as J.P. Skipper's been showing of late, but let's focus here, folks. Get a hold of yourselves.
Let's concentrate on trying to piece things together in a rational scientific and sociological manner, not by breathlessly and blindly claiming things that are just not the case. There's plenty of stuff to chew on regarding our celestial neighbors... plenty... so let us move on from credulity and look at things properly.
The latest iteration of the economy to waft over HQ have forced a commitment to creativity in survival and success. Since I on occasion do a voice over, acoustics are a big deal in furthering things along. Audio gear is pretty pricey, the real deal, anyway, so there was always a barrier... the studio construction books were also costly to realize. A truly friendly approach is needed. I am delighted to have found these two vids by an actual authority, Arthur Noxon of Acoustic Sciences, whose objects I'd love to use... it's... Guerrilla Acoustics for we of no budgets. I think it's a nice gesture and it set at least one bit at ease in the old head.
Let the New Year begin...

The late and very lamented guitar genius Roy Buchanan is one of my heroes and I periodically check the web for videos of him playing Cajun, my favorite song of his, especially as it's a pretty upbeat and good feeling song written by one who had such a tragic life. I still haven't found one, but I did find this one by John Paul Keith & The One Four Fives. John Paul does a great job playing it and I think I should find out more about him and his band... they obviously share my taste.
Here's the info on this vid... Cover version of Roy Buchanan's "Cajun". Live at the White Water Tavern, Little Rock, AR, 06-20-08. Footage courtesy of Kenneth King, Kingfish Productions. John Paul Keith: guitar, vocals; Kevin Cubbins: guitar; Mark Stuart: bass, vocals; John Argroves: Drums. http://myspace.com/johnpaulkeith

A big round of applause for Mr. Muntadar al-Zeidi.
I am appalled that his fellow countrymen beat him up, and badly. Doesn't make sense to me.
I do fully agree with what Mick wrote over at his blog, (which I suggest you check out.) though... laugh at him we may, but it is indeed dangerous to consider him a joke.
Apologies to the great Sergio Leone for stealing the title of his movie for this post's subject, I'm sure he'll understand.

I just signed a letter of petition over at the ACLU site about the torture of this poor dude... another in a long, long line of special order jobs commissioned by the fascists that have taken America away from us. Hopefully the new admin, which sadly seems to have a bunch of 'em lined up for big jobs, will put a stop to this crap. Here's what the ACLU presented me with when I was done... please add your voice...
Subject: U.S. Citizen being tortured
An American man detained in the United Arab Emirates at the behest of the U.S. government has been released from State Security custody, where he was detained incommunicado and in a secret location, and transferred to a prison in Abu Dhabi, but only after suffering severe torture.
Naji Hamdan’s transfer came only one week after lawyers for the ACLU filed a lawsuit alleging that the U.S. government was responsible for his detention.
On December 2, Naji Hamdan, who lived in the Los Angeles area for more than two decades, was allowed a phone call to his brother, Hossam Hemdan, a resident of Los Angeles. Hamdan reported to his brother that officials transferred him to a regular prison on November 26 and that his captors routinely beat him and kept him in a freezing underground room during his months-long detention by State Security forces. The torturers kicked him with their military boots in the location of his liver, knowing that he has a liver condition. On some occasions, they beat him so badly that Mr. Hamdan passed out for extended periods of time and believed he would die. On at least one occasion, they strapped his arms and legs down to an electric chair, while threatening to use it.
Hamdan’s description of the torture and interrogation he endured makes clear that American agents have been involved. Although blindfolded by his torturers, Hamdan reported that some of the interrogators spoke native American English and were not fluent in Arabic. In addition, the agents interrogated Hamdan on topics about which only U.S. federal agents could have knowledge, such as a meeting he had with FBI agents.
The news of Hamdan’s transfer comes after the ACLU filed a habeas corpus petition in federal district court in Washington, D.C., alleging that the U.A.E. detained Hamdan at the behest of the U.S. government. Last week, U.S. District Judge James Robertson ordered the government to respond to the petition.
Hamdan, who was born in Lebanon, lived for more than two decades in the Los Angeles area, where he ran an auto-parts business and helped manage the Islamic Center of Hawthorne, a mosque and community center. In 2006, he decided to relocate his family and business to the U.A.E.
Hamdan’s detention in the U.A.E. was the culmination of years of surveillance by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). This summer FBI agents traveled from Los Angeles to the U.A.E. to question Hamdan further. Approximately three weeks later he was detained by agents of the U.A.E. state security forces.
Hamdan’s brother and others who know him from his activities at the Islamic Center of Hawthorne have all said that he is a peaceful family man who would never support violence.
If the U.S. government requested or participated in his detention and torture in the U.A.E., the United States government has violated this U.S. citizen’s most elemental constitutional rights.
Take action: Tell your Members of Congress to help in the release of Hamdan. Go to:

With that clear, are there truly benefits on a home or small business level to renewable solar technology? Absolutely. Truthfully, by utilizing renewable energy technology on a home level you can save yourself thousands of dollars each year. Renewable energy technology has gained popularity in recent years and it has become increasingly easy to meet your home’s energy needs with just a little handyman work. With the information available about renewable energy technology, it is possible to build renewable energy products, such as a windmill or solar panel, on your own. Do-it-yourselfers are saving huge amounts of pocket change by building and installing these systems themselves. If you have the money to invest in a commercial professionally installed system, in general these are more efficient, however, savings can still be realized, and at a much faster rate, by researching and building your own renewable energy systems.
Renewable energy technology is advancing with each day. Solar electrical systems have advanced from giant roof panels to thin layers of film that are twice as conductive and work with less sunlight. There are now solar powered charges for cell phones, batteries and other small household items. Windmills have been made more aerodynamic for greater action and electricity generation. Renewable energy technology can even be seen along today’s highways as small solar/wind operation stations powering signs and lights.
The truth is renewable energy technology is working and you can put it to work for you in your home or business. With growing popularity and more consumer use, renewable energy technology could possibly help the climate, help alleviate financial stress and create a world less depend on fossil fuels.
