Hopefully it will be a worthwhile trip and I can post a bit more about it later.

Hundreds of people have visited the ocean of mud devastating Sidoarjo, in heavily populated East Java, in a bid to end the seemingly unstoppable flow of thick sludge since it first broke through the earth a year ago.
Nine villages, including thousands of houses, factories and surrounding rice paddy fields, have been buried by the mud, which started flowing from the site of a gas exploration well during drilling 3km underground a year ago.
Australian company Santos has an 18 per cent non-operating stake in the failed Banjar Panji exploration project.
Guntur, a security guard at the entry to the main mud crater, said people who came to pray and conduct rituals to try and halt the mud - sometimes from as far away as Australia, France and China - usually ended up making things worse.
"Really, whenever they throw the head of a bull, or goat, or cow, the embankments surrounding the place will leak," said Guntur, who only uses one name like many Indonesians.
"Rituals of magic-filled things, or amulets, or things like that are prohibited now. Not long after they throw things in, the embankments would leak."
He said people also needed to seek permission before they cast spells over the mud.

"There isn't anything I can do about what happened yesterday and no one can guarantee you a tomorrow, not even a fortune teller," Joanna Honsberger told a Review reporter during an interview in 1980.
As cancer ravaged her body, the Niagara Falls psychic found she couldn't even guarantee herself a tomorrow. She died Saturday at the age of 68.
6thSensitive would like to extend condolences to the family and friends of a Paranormal & Spiritual wonder.

The Incredible Bouncing Cow

Steve Munday, 46, has become an internet cult figure after a video interview with him was broadcast on 'You Tube'.
The video (above), in which Steve reveals the tic-tac size object in his left arm, has had a big response and opened up an online debate into the paranormal.
Steve, who works in Rugby town centre, claims the probe was planted when he was 13 and ever since then he has believed in alien activity.
He said: "It happened when I was cycling to see a friend near Northampton. It was 6.30pm on a light summer's evening when I left home.
"But I got to my friend's house two hours later, despite it being a 15 minute journey. By then it was pitch black and I remember my friend shouting 'where have you been?
"To this day I still don't know what happened during those two hours. I feel that I lost those two hours from my life."
Steve, who claims to have had two other paranormal experiences during his youth, has no plans to get rid of the probe.
But he admitted that everyday life is far from straight-forward with the object inside his arm.
He said: "When I go through metal detectors and counters at supermarkets, the probe soon sets them off!
"But I don't mind that. It's become a part of me and it's here to stay. It doesn't hurt me and I can't even feel it unless I prod it.
"My friends get sqeamish when I show them it and my brother wants to get me drunk so he can cut the probe out and get it analysed!"
Steve, who is planning a second internet interview, added that he was proud to have the probe.
"I think it seperates me from normality. Generally people lead boring lives and nothing extraordinary happens to them," he added.
"I feel like an exception to that. If aliens chose me to abduct then that makes me special."

Robbie Williams used to live in a haunted house.
The sexy star has confessed he saw ghosts while living in former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr's Los Angeles house.
He told Britain's Radio One: "When I moved out, the removal men wouldn't go in because of the old lady sitting in the chair.
True story! "Ringo's son, Zak Starkey, said to me: 'I hear you're in my old place,' because his dad used to own it.
And he asked if I'd seen the children in the garden and the old lady. Well, I never saw the kids but, but the old lady certainly kept cropping up."
The 'Angels' singer also says after his brush with the paranormal he now wants to launch a new career - as a TV psychic.
"I want to do a whole TV series on paranormal things. I'm really intrigued. I'm pretty open for it to be real, but I'm also quite open for it to be the power of suggestion too. I just want to find out. I really want to get a TV show, perhaps on Living TV."
I'm not even a Robbie fan so I'll try not post any more on this until he does more about it.

“I like to play ‘Swing When Your Winning’ when I’m at home and Frank approves. He was there when I made it,” says the troubled singer.
When he’s not hanging around LA cemeteries, Robbie is reportedly studying black magic to help hone his abilities.
“I think I do have powers. I’ve seen things. My sister’s dog jumping at her feet, when it had passed away years before. Green lights coming in at my window, too.”

Its not like he's a dull "spotter", he gets around! Heading off to Rome, New York, Oslo, Peru, London, Paris ..... but its getting to the stage when I just know I'm gonna see pics of street lamps with a corner of some of the great sites of the world squeezing in from the side.
Just admit you have a Street lamp Fetish and you're half way there.
So how can I tie this into my paranormal blog I here you ask? Easy!
Street light interference, or SLI, is an alleged anomalous phenomenon street lights, or outside building security lights, when passing near them. Hilary Evans coined the word "SLIder" to refer to someone who causes this effect, in his book The SLI Effect. In his book on page 15 he says "the effect is spontaneous and is apparently meaningless; it serves no practical purpose, nor does it seem to provide satisfaction for the individual or in any other way serve some kind of psychological purpose." He further explains that a wide variety of street lamp types are targeted. Hilary Evans is a well know English author on paranormal subjects and one of the founding members of the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena
The idea of SLI might seem weird but its very common - try google it.
Thankfully Lamp Fetishes are as common but if you give that a google too you'll see its also not as rare as I'd be comfortable with!

Seems I've been leaving out all those little jobs I do on the side ... and the trail tends to lead back to "The Brother-in-Law" and his plans for web-domination. Probably my favourite bits I've done for him in the last while are the logo Redpages.ie as well as the website for the Holiday accomodation in Bergen, Norway - Elfhouse.
So when people (including myself) are wondering why I'm not updating a blog or a website maybe I'm off helping Patrick earn his millions?

I have never personally experienced anything which could be discribed as a UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) and have no strong opinions on them either way but I have spoken to very sane people who have a stronge belief in such things.
Here is a report from BBC Northern Ireland's Website:
Several callers to BBC Northern Ireland have reported a series of strange orange lights in the night sky.
Air traffic control at Belfast International Airport said it had also received reports about the sightings, including one from the Coastguard.
However, the airport said it had no record of any aircraft in the sky at the time.
The callers said the sightings had been made on Saturday evening.
Clifford Rossbottom from Bangor told the BBC: "There were three orange globes - nearly in a straight line - they were an absolutely fascinating sight.
"I watched them for five minutes, and then very slowly, they just disappeared.
"The only thing I thought it could have been was three high-flying aircraft.
"If that is not the case, then I have no idea, and the only other thing I can think of is in fact that they were UFOs."

Don't get me wrong the Dublin Ghost Bus is great craic. Its theatrical, entertaining and fairly unique, here's what they have to say about it on the website:
Dublin Tour - GhostBus
Let us put you at your unease on the world's only Ghostbus, and introduce you to the dark romance of a city of gaslight ghosts and chilling legends.
The bus itself is a unique attraction, it is a mobile theatre decorated in the gothic style and features a live storyteller who takes you on a spellbinding trip through Dublin. Once onboard, we take advantage of this atmospheric setting to spirit you away to a world of felons, fiends and phantoms and put you in the mood for being both charmed and spooked at the same time.
En route you learn the real origins of Dracula and his Dublin born inventor, Bram Stoker. We stop at the College of Physicians to recreate the strange activities of Dr. Clossy, whose spirit is still seen walking the corridors carrying a bucket of human entrails. We visit the site where Walking Gallows, the notorious judge, jury and hangman dispatched his victims in a most gruesome fashion.
This tour may not suit those of a nervous disposition!
Apart from that, the Zozimus Ghostly Experience and The Ghost Walk Macabre there's not much else in my area of interest happening in Irelands Capital City - hopefully that will start to change as the interest in all things Paranormal & Supernatural gets more popular.

AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE EXTENDED MIND
Most of us know it well—the almost physical sensation that we are the object of someone’s attention. Is the feeling all in our head? And what about related phenomena, such as telepathy and premonitions? Are they merely subjective beliefs? In The Sense of Being Stared At, renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake explores the intricacies of the mind and discovers that our perceptive abilities are stronger than many of us could have imagined.
Despite a traditional academic background, Sheldrake has devoted his notable career as a scientist and writer to challenging the boundaries of “acceptable” science. A firm believer in the power of an experiment to yield answers about nature, he has dedicated years of intense research to investigating our common beliefs about what he calls our “seventh sense.” After compiling a database of 4,000 case histories, 2,000 questionnaires, 1,500 telephone interviews, and the results of a decade of scientifically controlled experiments, Sheldrake argues persuasively in this compelling, innovative book that such phenomena are real. In fact, he rejects the label of “paranormal” and shows how these psychic occurrences are a normal part of human nature.Have a gander at Sheldrakes own website.
