Recent 'Leaked' Bigfoot DNA Information
(Phantoms & Monsters) The following information was posted at Bigfoot News - December 7, 2011 in reference to results of the nuclear DNA testing for the 'Bigfoot Steak':
The steak was sent out to ~8 different labs to be tested on a blind basis. Nuclear DNA testing was part of the process. The labs were not told what they were getting and they had no idea what they were testing. Two of the labs were said to have “figured out what it was,” whatever that means, and honestly it doesn’t make sense in the context. The cost was $~11,000 per result, so ~$90,000 was spent on DNA sequencing of the steak. This cost was apparently footed by Wally Hersom.
From all eight labs, the results came back:
1. Not human.
2. Not any known animal.
3. “Unknown primate.”
A lot of the labs made communications to Ketchum along the lines of “What in the Hell is this we are testing anyway?” “WFT?” “WTH?” “Huh?” The labs were essentially dumbfounded and befuddled by the specimen, but they reported the results in official reports as they were paid to do.
#3. is important, because although the DNA matched no known living creature, it is primate DNA. I would go further and suggest that it is hominid DNA.
#1 is extremely important and cannot be emphasized enough. This is because the skeptic blogs keep repeating over and over that Ketchum’s results are “human DNA.” I can emphatically confirm that the results for at least the Bigfoot steak from the Sierra Kills were definitely “100% non human.”
There's more! Read the rest of the story.

Note: I am not going to comment on this, other than to say that if true, this is awesome news!

Workmen make 'bewitching' discovery
(UK News-Yahoo) Water engineers have unearthed what could prove to be one of the most infamous sites in England's history of witches and warlocks.
United Utilities' workers were "stunned" to discover a 17th century witch's-style cottage, with a mummified cat sealed into the walls, during a routine construction project in Pendle, Lancashire.
The "spellbinding" find occurred near Lower Black Moss reservoir in the village of Barley, which nestles in the shadow of Pendle Hill - the UK's premier witching hotspot.
Speculation is already rife among local historians that the building could be the lost Malkin Tower - the site of a notorious meeting of the Pendle witches on Good Friday, 1612.
Archaeologists brought in by the North West water firm to survey the area found a remarkably well-preserved building from the 1600s, hidden beneath a grass mound.
The building contained a sealed room, with a mummified cat bricked into the wall. It is believed the cat was buried alive to protect the cottage's inhabitants from evil spirits.
Carl Sanders, United Utilities' project manager, said: "It's not often you come across a fairytale cottage complete with witch's cat. The building is in remarkable condition. You can walk through it and get a real sense that you're peering into the past."
Simon Entwistle, an expert on the Pendle witches, said: "In terms of significance, it's like discovering Tutankhamun's tomb. We are just a few months away from the 400th anniversary of the Pendle witch trials, and here we have an incredibly rare find, right in the heart of witching country."
Frank Giecco, from NP Archaeology, led the team who unearthed the Pendle building.
He said: "It's like discovering your own little Pompeii. We rarely get the opportunity to work with something so well preserved. As soon as we started digging, we found the tops of doors, and knew we were onto something special."

17th Century "Witch's Cottage" Unearthed in Britain
(NBC Miami) A 400-year-old "witch's cottage" complete with a mummified cat was unearthed by British engineers excavating a grass-covered mound.
Archaeologists were called to the construction project in Lancashire after the cottage was discovered, according to the BBC. Experts believe the the well-preserved cottage may have belonged to one of the Pendle witches.
The mummified cat was found embedded in a brick wall, where it may have been buried alive to ward off evil spirits.
Carl Sanders, United Utilities' project manager, said: "It's not often you come across a fairytale cottage complete with witch's cat.
"The building is in remarkable condition," Carl Sanders, manager of the utilities project that necessitated the digging, told the BBC. "You can walk through it and get a real sense that you're peering into the past."
The area around the cottage, Pendle Hill, is known as witch country for a spate of witch trials that took place during the 17th century.
Simon Entwistle, an expert on the Pendle witches compared the discovery to finding the tomb of King Tut.
"We are just a few months away from the 400th anniversary of the Pendle witch trials, and here we have an incredibly rare find, right in the heart of witching country," he said. "This could well be the famous Malkin Tower - which has been a source of speculation and rumor for centuries."
The building also contains a 19th Century kitchen range, Victorian crockery, a tin bath and a bedstead from its later years.

Last year I decorated the front of the house with lights and created what looked like (at night), a landed flying saucer with multicolored chase lights around it.
In the evenings after dark, I noticed quite a few people stopping out on the road and then speeding off. I guess they thought it was a real UFO. hehe
As I was looking through last years photos, I came across one of the house that has an anomaly. Can you see it?
Look close, just to the left of the doorway. A Christmas spirit, perhaps?
If you have had ghostly encounters at Christmas time, I'd love to read your story and possibly post it here. If you have photos, that would be even better.
Send your stories and photos to me.
