THE WEEK THAT'S PAST:  I promised new music from Mike Davis
Well, I always keep my promises. Or at least try to. Last weekend he was here for three days from Friday, and we did a lot of recording. No less than five new songs have resulted, and you can hear them HERE.

Mike Davis is one of British music's best kept secrets. Why he isn't a star I have no idea, and when you hear his music you are bound to agree with me! I have worked in what Berry Gordy once described as the "industry of human happiness" on and off throughout my adult life. Thirty years ago, when I was trying to be the Brian Epstein of South Devon, I picked up a hitchhiker called Mike Davis travelling through Starcross. In all my years in the business he is still the most talented singer/songwriter that I have ever met! 

I am lucky enough to have achieved most of my ambitions in life, but the one ambition that I have yet to achieve is to make Mike Davis a star! I have a sneaking suspicion that as we get half way through the second decade of the 21st Century, that his and my stars are finally right!

army dogs do not retire just shoot dead

I stood by you, I was at your side in the riots, I smelt out the bombs and walked through mines, I stood by you when you felt alone and away from home, dragged people from wrecks, give a lick and wag, I stood by you at the parade, standing strong and full of pride at the end of service what was my reward a nice garden, somewhere warm, no the army shoot me DEAD. Stand up against the killing of army dogs. So far 288 dogs  have been killed, so save them; stand up and be counted; do something today. Don't just sit on your bum.


When I was in secondary school I was asked by my teacher to take part in a play. The play was about Cleopatra and as my name is Mark Antony I was to be the lead and kiss a girl. At this thought I rebelled and ran away. Neither the school nor my mum were happy with this. By the way, my mum fancied Richard Burton in the film Cleopatra so that's how I was named Mark Antony. I hated my middle name for some time but I am all right with it now as at least it makes me known apart from the Ghostman Raines bit, which I became after my diabetic coma in another ghostman blog.


The veil worn by women is not right in the world we live in but the same was said about wearing the cross, as concern about religious beliefs and the so-called PC brigade not wanting people to be upset. I believe everyone has a right as long as their wish to do it for themselves.


Black and white rebel against the injustice of killing us by shot or gas. Unlike Syria we will not get goverment people checking on us. Man brought me to the land centuries ago but I bet you would not do this to them. Please support the Save The Badger Facebook page and watch the Simon Jester video.

Well, it started when I chose to do voluntary work. I was sent by the agency to help out down the nook in Westward Ho! The home was for challenging behaviour and adults with learning difficulties. Whilst I was there I learnt how to deal with people by treating them how I wished to be treated. After some time helping out the then  manager asked if I would like to try out a job at Woodtown House. Woodtown House is for mental health. I went for an interview and was offered a job. At Woodtown I got my NVQ2 in mental health and special needs. I enjoyed my time there. I worked on and off for 10 years, day and night care assistant and at a later date I went to work down the nook, which i really enjoyed. I even got to be deputy manager for a year, and only left due to the closure of the home, which upset me at the time.

Looking for Bigfoot? New Map Shows Where to Search

bigfoot-mapReported sightings of Bigfoot — the legendary apelike creature that's been a favorite of cryptozoologists for decades — have abounded for decades. Now, for the first time, someone has created a map showing the places where alleged Bigfoot sightings have occurred.
Joshua Stevens, a doctoral candidate at Pennsylvania State University, used data compiled by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), which tries to document "the presence of an animal, probably a primate, that exists today in very low population densities," according to the group's website.
Stevens converted the BFRO data and, using geographic-information software, plotted 3,313 data points showing where people have claimed to see Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, Yeti, Skookum or dozens of other names). [Rumor or Reality: Tales of 10 Creatures of Cryptozoology]read more

Attenborough: 'the Yeti may be real'

Naturalist Sir David Attenborough has stated that he believes the Yeti may be a real creature.

Speaking at a showcase for upcoming UKTV programmes, the 87-year-old expressed an interest in the legend of the abominable snowman and stated that he believed such a creature could potentially exist in the wilds of the Himalayas.

"I believe the Abominable Snowman may be real. I think there may be something in that," he said. "There are footprints that stretch for hundreds of miles and we know that in the 1930's a German fossil was found with these huge molars that were four or five times the size of human molars. They had to be the molars of a large ape, one that was huge, about 10 or 12 feet tall. It was immense."

Attenborough also went on to provide his views on how a creature like the Yeti may have survived for so long without being officially discovered and recognized by science.

"If you have walked the Himalayas there are these immense rhododrendron forests that go on for hundreds of square miles which could hold the Yeti," he said. "If there are some still alive and you walked near their habitat you can bet that these creatures may be aware of you, but you wouldn’t be aware of them." 

Three Mysterious Creature Encounters Reported From Pennsylvania

Three very interesting encounters with some very unusual creatures have come to my attention recently from Pennsylvania. The Keystone State has a long history of not only observations of Bigfoot, but also of many other mysterious beasts as well. Year after year members of the public reluctantly come forward to report their encounters with strange creatures that aren’t supposed to exist. The following is a summary of some of the recent cases that I have been investigating.

The Creature of Mud Creek Road
Troy, Pennsylvania

On April 11, 2012, I received a call from the man who, along with his girlfriend, had a frightening encounter with a strange creature on November 20, 2011, outside of Troy in Bradford County, Pennsylvania. The fellow told me that what they saw “scared the hell out of us”. I was able to interview the woman involved on April 26, 2012. After conducting extensive interviews with the driver and his girlfriend I learned the following more

I have been re-inspired to write, look up and feel part of something by a man I met by accident. I was talking to your local pastry kitchen about what goes on down the hall when Stuart told me about Weird Weekend. I then went online and saw that the CFZ were looking for helpers so I went along, feeling a bit anxious when a meet a man called Jon who looks a bit like Giant Haystacks. A posh hippie, he told me about the CFZ and its projects with passion. I then began to think to myself: hey, give things a try just for yourself and if others like it, it will be a bonus. So thank you, Jon.

Clever computers link up and develop an evil intelligence. A man-made superbug escapes form a lab with no known anti-dote. Global warming accelerates past tipping point. Wars caused by overpopuliation. A huge asteroid hits earth and wipes us out like the dinosaurs. Cyber attacks bring all computers down, leading to society's breakdown. Food supply sabotage sparks riots. Killer virus mutated from animals spreading. Nuclear annihilation following a war from a rogue nation/state/terrorists. So just cosy up to your nearest and dearest and wait.

I am writing this account to get the experience of my Dad's funeral some airing; to just give my view. It started the night before as I stayed overnight at my sister Nicky's home; she seemed not to make an effort when I tried to talk. Next morning I got suited and booted for the day. As I went to get into the car she asked if I had had breakfast but I had not. Anyway, further on in the trip we had to stop so that one of my nephews could swap due to my niece not able to drive on the motorway. Nicky then got out of the car. Her husband was bemused and got out after 10 mins she came back to our car. No-one talked until we got to Essex, when the funeral car was getting ready. When Nicky got into our old family home she was rude and abrupt with Mum about why the car was outside. Then she left. She then came back to sit in funeral car where due to my movements I accidentally knocked her arm whereupon she shouted at me to not touch her. On the journey to the service this made me fell uneasy. She also brought from her car my bag of clothes and stuff, which I had to carry into the service. At the last part of the service my sister reached over me completely to hold my other sister's hand. At the wake she blanked me and Mum. I felt as welcome as a black man at a Ku Klux Klan meeting. Anyway, this carried on the whole way home; she has not made any contact with my Mum since and I don't like being treated like shit so I have made no effort. Yes. you can say she was grieving but I think this was how she truly felt.


Well, how do we suspend our beliefs whilst watching television, film or plays. Actors make us seem to think we know the people they portray. From ancient times Greek plays, for example, all subjects boiled down to comedy and tragedy. Like with religion, we can't prove the stories told in their various books or aliens or unknown creatures or ghosts. We suspend.

Hairy creature sighting disturbs classes

read on

Image credit: stockxpert

A school in Botswana was forced to close after pupils reported sighting a small hairy humanoid creature.

The bizarre series of events started around 12 noon when a number of students reported 'a black little hairy creature which resembled a human being.' While none of the teachers saw anything, the sighting caused mass panic among the pupils. Some of the children were so convinced by what they'd witnessed that as many as 10 ended up being treated for shock at a local clinic.

"We will be holding prayers in the school soon after meeting parents and chiefs but for now we had asked for professional councillors to help," said regional eduction director Acro Maseko. One of the teachers put the incident down to mass hysteria induced by the stresses of upcoming exams.

Teachers at Mathiba Primary School in Maun had to abruptly end classes last week Friday after students reported seeing a hairy little creature.

The Strange-ness -- Local Bigfoot Sightings

While the Finding Bigfoot show on Animal Planet focused on Bigfoot sightings in Western NC, did you know that Eastern NC residents have seen bigfoot too? Bigfoot reports indicate the creature also walks the Eastern NC woods.

In Johnston County, only one sighting has ever been reported. Two witness saw a bear-like figure with long arms in July 2002. Greene County residents reported hearing, not seeing, a strange on

CRYPTOZOOLOGY, ODDITIES Chupacabra in the news in New Jersey and Texas

There has been a strange sighting of a strange creature in a suburban New Jersey town – and pictures of it have residents asking “What the heck is that?”
“I saw a strange animal in the front yard,” witness Rob Lyons said.
Lyons had the presence of mind to shoot a picture of the creature on his smartphone.
“It was too small to be a coyote. Definitely not a dog. Might be a cat. Prances like a cat. It was weird,” Lyons said.
NO one has a CLUE? Really? Clue one: it looks like a canid – dog, coyote or fox. The guesses in this piece are absolutely stupid. But the last line gets to the facts – a canid with mange.
This report of the same Ridgeway animal is no better but also manages to hide the logical explanation at the end.
Another chupa story came out of Texas and TOPPED THE NEWS. Seriously!? This is top news?
Topping our news tonight, the possible discovery of the mysterious Chupacabra in the Coastal Bend. The animal was first seen in thick brush a few miles northeast of Falfurrias about a month ago.
The homeowner thinks it was in the area looking for food. One photo shows an encounter with a cat that didn’t seem too scared, yet was not happy to see the strange animal lurking on

Usual boring stuff: went to a Catholic school and spent 2 years in the same class. Moved to secondary school and was bullied for a short time until I stood up to them one day in the lunch queue. Nearly got the cane when not doing school project of helping elderly do gardening. Only missed out because, as the headmaster knew, my Grandad was a caretaker at old school. Left in 1979 and worked in a factory dealing in making hardware goods. Nearly got beaten up by one-eyed co-worker for winding him up. Managed to move on to a plastic factory that made brushes - mostly as a tea boy cum labourer. Moved from home to first room in shared house. This is where I meet my first girlfriend, got my ear pierced, got into music and witchcraft, and followed bikers and Hell's Angels around  to feel cool. After split with then girlfriend went off the rails: 2 criminal damage, 1 year probation, drink and mild drugs. Anyway, decide to go training down the gym: circuit then weights; even entered a power-lifting contest (came last). Lived on top in sauna of gym. Fell out with family. Decided felt lonely so put an ad in back-street hero's for a girlfriend. Got a waste of time in Kent: a pervert, and then found present wife. Are you bored yet? Well, wife-to-be came with a bad husband, 3 children, court case, threats of violence, stress, moving a lot until now in Woolsery. P.P.S. got married 15th June 1991; Came to Devon August 1988.


What a weekend that was: meeting new people, helping out. The job's done during weekend: attending meetings, barman, helping to put up marquee, reception, labouring, artstic design, child-minding, usher, helping to set up conference hall. Enjoyed the whole experience and had some interesting debates with the speakers. Must mention that I also got the Golden Baboon award and did the quiz. If you wish to see more go to Youtube and look up Weird Weekend 2013; not bad for an aging ex-moped-riding biker who is a bit of a weirdo.
