Happy Easter everyone!!!

Lisa’s 2 cents worth!

Spring has officially arrived, and we are READY! Stan and I have decided that the older we get, the less we enjoy the snow. Hopefully my grandson will snap us back into snowball fight mode. 
 I want to take this opportunity to thank my friend Dennis Rano for his wonderful ufologist toons. He also does ghost hunter toons as well. /ufologistoons

 Stan’s Thoughts!
I am not sure everyone knows this but we design and maintain our own websites. For that matter, we pretty much do everything ourselves. The reason I am mentioning this is because my amazing wife just finished designing and publishing her own website. All I can say is, “You go girl, less work for me.” All kidding aside she did a great job you should go check it out

Lately I have been doing a lot of radio shows talking about the hybrid kids. For those of you that read the books know that these kids in the past have made an appearance and sometimes in front of a large number of people. Although we have not seen the kids since 2010 others say they have, and more witnesses are coming forward. Lucky for us that is what makes our case so strong. Validating and corroborating witnesses. Everything that seems to happen does so with people around below are just a few witness reports regarding the children.

Sadly despite the witnesses and the evidence the debunkers are still hard at work.
From Stan and Lisa
We had a great time at this year’s IUFOC (International UFO Congress) We have added pictures of a few of the people we met for the first time, and pictures of some of our dearest IUFOC friends from years past.

1967-The Betty Andreasson Abduction

Betty Andreasson, who in 1967  experienced an encounter with UFO beings, became the subject of one of the first controversies over the claimed contact with extraterrestrials that engaged the whole community of UFO researchers. In 1979, Raymond Fowler wrote the first of four books discussing what became known as the "Andreasson Affair."

Andreasson's story began on the evening of January 25, 1967, in South Ashburnham, Massachusetts. The lights went out in her home, and her seven children and her parents, who were visiting, gathered in the kitchen. Her father looked out the back window, attracted by a pink light that was shining, and he saw several little creatures which he thought of as Halloween-like entities. He made a passing note of them, but did not do anything. The next morning, all appeared to be back to normal, except Andreasson had a strange feeling that something out of the ordinary had happened. Over the next few weeks she had flashbacks of humanoid creatures and an otherworldly environment, but it was not until 1977 when she underwent some hypnosis sessions that the entire story surfaced. It appears that soon after her father saw the creatures, all of the family was placed in a state of paralysis and several small gray beings entered the house and addressed her telepathically. They took her aboard their spaceship, an action requiring Andreasson to pass through the closed door of her house and to float toward the disc-shaped craft.

On board the ship she was run through a series of tests that included probes of her body with a needle and the removal of a small object from her head by a needle inserted into her nostril. She next had a visionary experience of traveling into another world where she met a being whom she, a Christian, saw as God. The voice told her that she was a chosen one. The events aboard the ship closed with a final lecture by an entity earlier identified as Quazgaa, who told her that she would forget what had occurred for a while, but that he and his companions loved humanity and had come to help. Humans needed to study nature to rid themselves of their self-destructive tendencies. They left her with a book, which she examined several days later, but again only remembered in 1977.

Her complex story mixed elements of what came to be known as UFO abduction accounts with contactee themes of a religious-like mission. While UFO investigators would study abductions intensely through the 1980s, they avoided contactee accounts (previously denounced as hoaxes or products of delusion) until a number of the abductee stories began to add contactee-like content. As her full story unraveled, Andreasson told of a series of encounters with the saucer entities that went back to her childhood. Following her marriage in 1978 to Bob Luca, she settled in Connecticut, where her home became the scene of a variety of psychic and unusual occurrences. Luca himself would undergo hypnosis to tell of a similar set of encounters to those already described by his new bride. New experiences continued into the 1990s.

The Andreasson Affair was integrated into the whole study of abductions during the 1980s, a study that continues. Though a number of leading UFO researchers have gone on record as believing the abduction stories, their work has yet to produce consensus or what many would see as hard evidence. Final evaluation of the Andreasson encounters awaits a final resolution of the issue of abductions. Skeptics have offered variant explanations from lying (the least credible hypothesis) to subconscious fantasy. Andreasson has continued to integrate her experiences, which she sees as evidence of the government of God over the world, into her Christian beliefs.

Colorado Shooter James Holmes' Guilty Plea Offer Rejected

Colorado prosecutors have rejected movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes' offer of a guilty plea in exchange for life in prison instead of the death penalty.
"While the defense suggested that the defendant be allowed to plead guilty on his terms, the prosecution indicated that it could not even consider such an offer without specific additional information, which the defense refused to provide," prosecutors wrote in their response Thursday, according to ABC News' Denver affiliate KMGH. 
Prosecutors also said they believed the defense's offer was a "calculated" move for attention.
"The circumstances surrounding the filing of the Notice indicate that it was filed for the intended purpose of generating the predictable pretrial publicity that occurred yesterday," prosecutors wrote, according to KMGH.

FULL COVERAGE: Aurora Shooting
Holmes' defense attorneys said on Wednesday that he was willing to plead guilty and spend the rest of his life in prison in order to avoid the death penalty

"Prior to arraignment, Mr. Holmes made an offer to the prosecution to resolve this case by pleading guilty and spending the rest of his life in prison, without any opportunity for parole," Holmes' attorneys wrote in an Arapahoe County court filing.

"It appears the only impediment to a resolution of this case would be if the prosecution chooses to seek the death penalty," defense attorneys wrote.

Denver defense attorney and former prosecutor Karen Steinhauser, who is not involved in the Holmes case, does not believe the defense's plea offer was a plot for publicity.

"I don't believe that this was a publicity stunt," Steinhauser told ABC News. "The goal of the defense is to do whatever they can to save their client's life."

"In Colorado, the death penalty is still the law and prosecutors have been reserving it for the worst of the worst," she said. "Most people would agree that if you're going to have a death penalty, this case represents the worst of the worst."

The Arapahoe County District Attorney's Office declined to comment on the case, citing a gag order.
Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and wounding at least 58 when gunfire erupted in an Aurora, Colo., theater last July during a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Holmes' physical appearance has evolved over his time in prison, visible only in rare court appearances. He has gone from wild, Joker-like orange and red hair in his first appearance to his most recent look of brown hair and a shaggy beard. He has sometimes looked bug-eyed and confused and other times so despondent and drowsy that people questioned whether he had been drugged.

District Attorney George Brauchler has gone on the record in the courtroom that he would have a decision on whether to seek the death penalty at a hearing Monday, April 1st. He has been meeting with families of the victims in the shooting to hear their opinions on the issue.

Family members are divided on whether Holmes should get death, according to investigative sources. Some are philosophically opposed to the death penalty, others support it and still another group wants death for Holmes, but they don't want to endure a trial.

The next hearing in the case is set for April 1 and his trial is scheduled to begin Aug. 5.
