Compton Bay was one of the regular summer hangouts of my childhood :-)

It's on the west side of the island with landmark attractions The Needles, and Tennyson Down to the north, and Brook Bay with its submerged petrified stone forests to the south.

It's all owned by the National Trust.

I've only been there once but I remember the cliff with all the multi-coloured sands. You could buy bottles of it but I didn't :-)

Alum Bay is the one with all the particoloured sands (Iron oxide ores). It's located out on Totland point, very close to The Needles (above), not far up the coast from Compton Bay.

The IOW monolith has now been claimed by a local designer from Fishbourne.

The nice thing about it is they're not screaming it's some kind of an environmental crime and removing it. The council aren't saying 'You've defaced the landscape and you haven't got planning permission!' and all that crazy stuff. On the contrary, they're leaving it right where it is and just keeping an eye on the beach so it doesn't get too crowded.

So nice to see a smile and some common sense. I don't think he intends to leave it there forever anyway.

And I do like the mirror effect. Lovely :-)

The Isle of Wight is a pretty laid-back place. They say the clocks go back twenty years when you step off the ferry at Cowes :-)

Now you can own a reproduction of the original Red Rocks monolith!

(while supplies last)

Sorry to hear the one at Atascadero, CA was torn down and replaced by a cross by Christian zealots, apparently under the influence of energy drinks and Trumpism. I should probably put Christian in quotes.

Hi everyone.. quick drop by..

This might be the year (2021) of the reveal. On the Stephen Colbert show recently, Stephen interviewed Obama and asked directly: "Do ET Aliens exist?". Obama answered that he couldn't talk about that. Stephen then pointed out that this response was as good as an admission that they do exist, otherwise Obama would have taken the standard government stance of debunking such.

Also, some high ranking security chief in the middle east, on upcoming retirement, has announced that his government and the U.S. have been in communication with "The Galactic Federation" for years now. That the Aliens are waiting for the human race to mature enough to handle their existence.

Seeing that 70+ million people voted for Trump after all we've seen... that we are obviously not ready for a healthy taste of a new reality. Watching these idiot anti-maskers trying to make some far fetched point about personal freedom doesn't give a good impression of humans being ready for such a powerful paradigm shift in how we think.

But just maybe.. what we need is a real jolt about what's going on in the Universe to wake up to a much larger reality than our petty issues and beliefs confine us to. I want to think that we can handle the truth about Alien Existence and embrace such.. but I'm probably just projecting my own thoughts.

Anyway, we do need outside help because we are really blowing it when it comes to taking care of this planet and ourselves.

Be safe and well.. Dave :^)

Hi, Dave. I'd be interested (even if it's off-topic) in any link concerning the Middle East official, if you have one.

If aliens are waiting for us to mature, before contact happens, why on earth (npi) would they be talking to our politicians?? :-)

Hey Vat... here you go...

In interview with Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper, former head of Israel's Defense Ministry's space directorate Haim Eshed said the U.S. government has been in contact with extraterrestrials from a "galactic federation." NBC News’ Bill Neely reports.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuRvdHXuk94

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6iE62jovMo

I have to wonder that given first contact with a primitive race (us).. by what criteria can it be decided that said race is ready to accept such a huge change in their world view and personal views. It seems that it would be very unlikely that an entire race can be on the same page when it comes to such change. 30% of America can't handle minor differences in skin color or behavior. What will we do about beings with tentacles?

If said Aliens take too long, we will destroy this planet and ourselves eventually. Not a matter of "if" but rather a matter of "When".

Later... Best regards,
Dave :^)

I went in for an operation some years back. The anaesthetist came to see me beforehand and he said 'Is there anything you're allergic to?' so I said 'Christians' which he seemed to find fairly amusing :-)

There have been tales of this kind of thing from way, way back. I'd be more impressed if they wheeled one out to show us, ready or not.

It's a pity they told you-know-who about it. He probably thinks they only came to see him. But they're perfectly at liberty to whisk him away for experimentation. Sooner the better.

Dear Galactic federation: please take more far-Right demagogues, and leave more pretty prisms.

Here's the Jerusalem Post article on the retired security official and his claims of ET contact....

(aside on Christians: people who follow the precepts of Christ are okay, and I don't put air-quotes around them -- I'm married to one such. But I am not fond of the smug, judgmental, bigoted variety that seem so prevalent nowadays -- they seem utterly out of touch with what Jesus was teaching.)

My favorite comment posted on the Aliens everywhere: Oh Great.. we build a wall to keep aliens out of America and now we have to build a ceiling too?

A view of the metal slab cordoned off by guards in Şanlıurfa southeastern Turkey


A 3-meter-tall (9.8-foot-tall) metal slab, resembling mysterious monoliths that have been popping up in several locations around the world, has now appeared near Göbeklitepe, home to the world’s oldest temple site, in Turkey's southeastern province of Şanlıurfa.

https://www.dailysabah.com/turkey/mystery-monolith-appears-at-worlds-oldest-temple-in-turkey/news

Security forces rushed to the area on Friday when locals in a nearby village alerted them to the monolith, which is much smaller than its counterparts found abroad. Gendarmerie troops cordoned off the area, an empty lot, and brought in experts from the local culture and tourism authorities. Experts said the inscription on the slab, which was only 45 centimeters (17.7 inches) wide, was in the ancient Göktürk alphabet and meant “Look at the sky if you want to see the Moon.”

Göktürk which means “Celestial Turks” or “Blue Turks” was a name for the earliest Turkic Khaganate founded by a confederation of nomadic Turkic tribes in Anatolia from the early sixth century onwards.

The Göktürk rulers are well known to Chinese historians as the 突厥 [Tūjué], because they interacted with the Northern Liang and Sui dynasties before being routed when the Chinese Tang dynasty was established in 615 AD.

Looking at the proportions, it must be the inscription is 17 inches high. It's clearly a bit wider.
The ancient alphabet is a nice touch.

'Security forces rushed to the area'


Right, I can imagine. National emergency.

“Look at the sky if you want to see the Moon.”


Deep, very deep.

But mostly monoliths are dated now :-)

Well, that's just it. Things that move, like human beings, are more easy to deal with. But something that just sits there... that's scary. You don't know what it's going to do next.

The latest in a series of mystery monoliths to capture the imagination of science-fiction fans around the world met a fiery end in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Wednesday when it was torched at a roundabout in the capital.

https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/silver-monolith-torched-in-congo-after-mysterious-appearance-2021-02-17

The 12-foot metallic structure first appeared in Kinshasa's Bandal neighbourhood over the weekend on Sunday morning. On Wednesday morning, a crowd of curious onlookers snapped selfies and debated its possible origins.

"We woke up and saw this metallic triangle," said Serge Ifulu, a local resident. "We were surprised because it is a triangle that we often see in documentaries about freemasons or illuminati."

Videos posted on social media later in the day showed residents destroying the structure with sticks and then setting it on fire.

Which is probably why the aliens think we're not quite ready for them yet... and they're not wrong.
