Dolls Origins Magic and Ancient Beginnings

Posted by Roses on May 26, 2010

Dolls have been a popular toy for many years. They have also been an item of collection. Plastic or porcelain faces, whether beloved by a child or sitting in a pristine hutch, they look at us with their never ending expressions.

Many cultures have different types of dolls… dolls that were never intended to be used as playthings. They have been used to represent coming of age, as an offering for the hope of fertility, and in some cases… used to absorb the energy of someone and create magic.

Perhaps the oldest doll (or doll fragment) found to date is part of an alabaster doll from the Babylonian period. There are also wooden dolls that have been found in ancient Egyptian graves that date back to 3,000 BC. These dolls were actually intended for religious or ritual use, often depicting the gods and goddesses of their worship.

In Ancient Greece, dolls for girls were often made at the time of their upcoming marriage. The doll was then offered to Artemis, the goddess of fertility. It …

Ghost that Walked My Halls

I am the the oldest son in a family of four, plus two dogs. We have been living in this house now for three years and I personally have had some strange paranormal experiences. Keep in mind that this is a new house. We are the first family that lived here.

I was home alone, my brother was at his friends house and my parents were at work. I was hearing noises coming from upstairs. I thought it was a robber, so I was scared to go up the stairs, but eventually I did. I got to the top of the stairs and glanced into my moms room on the left. Nothing, I looked into the bathroom, straight ahead of the stairs and the toilet seat was fairly forcefully hitting the bowl. I was a believer in ghosts so I thought it was paranormal. I had an urge to turn to my room and there was a crystal clear image of my baby who had died two months ago leaning over my bed, looking where …

Hi I’m about to tell you a few things that I have seen and felt. I was at a friends house one day cause I was spending the night, we were in her room and my friend and I are in choir so we were singing one of our songs because we got bored. Well, when we were done in her closet we could her
little kids clapping. I asked her if she knew what that was and she told me that her closet and other places in the house are haunted. So I went over there and if you stand close to it my tummy started to hurt and I got dizzy. Later that night when we were getting ready for bed I felt a cold spot and then it felt like somebody touched me.  We laid down then a few minutes later it felt like somebody laid down right beside me but only my friend was here beside me.

I also have had a few experiences in my own home. It was a …

Ok where to begin I guess with the mark that I was born with on my leg it looks like a snake bite and has been there from the time I was born.

My mother and I both like to eat raw hamburger that is really bloody. Whenever I see blood I get really hungry although I do eat human food but it just seems to never satisfy me at all

I never lose or gain weight at all.

I do have a very rare blood type but I do not know if that could mean any thing at all.

If I get cut I heal like in hours no scars or any thing of that sort …

The Black Dog in Hawaiian Gardens

Posted by Roses on May 14, 2010

This is what my grandma told me about, she’s told me others but this story is one of m favorites. She’s about 67 years old and she told me this happened to her when she was a teenager. Which is a long time ago.
Its a creepy story, especially about out nature, I’ll tell you this like if she were telling you.

It was way back then when I was a teenager. I always liked to take a walk out in the streets. I always liked to spend time with dogs, cats and other animals. I had went to my friends house to invite her to walk with me. She said yeah sure. So off we went.

We walked through the beautiful park, and the whole block. We came up a hill to a ditch. We both saw a big black dog that looked very friendly, and harmless. At first, but that didn’t stop, it from doing something evil.

We both thought the dog was cute, so we went to pet it.
I felt something …

Led Zeppelin One Of The Best Bands That Ever Hit Rock-N-Roll

Posted by Roses on May 11, 2010

Jimmy Page is often named as one the best guitarists and Led Zeppelin often appears in the top of Best Bands lists. Led Zeppelin is without a doubt one of the best music groups ever to perform.

In 1966 a 22 year old Jimmy Page joined Jeff Beck’s group The Yardbirds. When Page first joined the group he replaced Paul Samwell-Smith as the bass player, but he soon changed to electric guitar, along with Beck, giving the band a dual guitar sound.

In July of 1968 members of The Yardbirds decided they no longer wanted to perform. Since they had agreed to do several more shows they gave Jimmy Page and Chris Deja, bassist for the Yardbirds, permission to perform under their name to complete the concerts. This is when Robert Plant, John Bonham and John-Paul Jones became part of the line-up. Deja left the band to become a photographer and we had the beginnings of Led Zeppelin who were known as The New Yardbirds at the time.

There are variations on the story of …

A look At Bob Dylan’s life

Posted by Roses on May 8, 2010

Bob Dylan born Robert Allen Zimmerman, began playing the guitar and harmonica as a child. While in high school he formed a rock and roll band called The Golden Chords and began performing at coffeehouses while in college.

He made his mark with folk fans in Greenwich Village, New York in 1961. By the time he appeared at Gerde’s Folk City opening for John Lee Hooker, Dylan already had a following of his own!

Dylan’s first album in 1962 was simply titled, “Bob Dylan”. It received very little interest and only sold around 5,000 copies over it’s first year.

The second album released in May of 1963, proved more successful for Dylan. He’d started to stake his claim as a both a writer and singer. “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” only included two cover songs, the rest were Dylan’s original writings!

The album went to number 22 on the charts, but eventually went platinum. In 2002, the Library of Congress chose 50 recordings to be added to the National Recording Registry, “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” was …
