Memories & Futures: Maybe we will fix it next time around.

I remember retail stores closing at 8pm maybe later in bigger cities.

Those days were not as chaotic as life is now. Yet, the genie is out of the bottle and she cannot be stuffed back into it. So, with the empty genie bottle sitting on the fireplace mantel we must progress forward while ensure we do are best to regulate society in such a way that chair cannot merge it's ugly head.

However, that is one solution there may be others.

Yet, I prefer to say everything is cyclical and organic. Translation we are an overpopulated world and mother nature is shaking us off this planet via dieses, natural disasters & climant changes like the human race was a bad case of fleas. Well, in a way we are the cancer of this planet and while we can be benign or malignant.

I somewhat feel we are entering a malignant stage marching towards destruction.

However, as the apostles creed in the Methodist church ends with The phrase WORLD WOTHOUT END. AMEN AMEN.

I have always taken that to me we the survivors of darkness inherit the earth to rebuild from the ashes.

FILM: Legends of Hainted Ditch - It all began with a photo.



While at a truck stop outside of West Memphis, Arkansas, Alex Norvin and his sister Laura meet an alcoholic paranormal investigator by the name of Moses Hudson, who after hearing of their plans to visit the old Hardin homestead he tells them about the rumors of the early Arkansas pioneer Jonathan Hardin and suggests they stay away.

Once they check in they soon find digging up the past can be hazardous to their health. 


It All Began With A Photo! 

It was the month of May, if memory serves me correctly and around  3PM when I blindly snapped this photo of the wooded overgrowth at the location of the abandoned Hardin Cemetery. When I arrived home and looked at the photo I found the following. I wont you what I think it is but I do believe it something that I cannot begin to explain.

Famous Ancestors & Relatives - How I connect to Herodia Long

Herodias (Long) Hicks Gardner Porter is my 11th Great Grandmother
http://www.rebelpuritan.com/More.html

Herodias (Long) Hicks Gardner Porter, and her marital hijinx also made Rhode Island talk. In 1644 she and her first husband, John Hicks, parted after Horred charged him with abuse and he accused her of whoredom. In 1655 her second husband, George Gardner, was tried for keeping John Hicks’ wife as his own. Gardner was found not guilty because the Hickses had been legally separated. However, in 1665 the forty-two year-old Horred asked for a divorce from George because they had never married. Horred got another separation from the shocked colony. Only a couple of years later she and John Porter, who was a good twenty years older than she, were tried for cohabitation.
