Unfortunately I have had an accident which has caused a great amount of pain. Sleeping has become a problem.
I fell through the back door and landed on the floor. It was impossible to get up. Since that time I have fallen six times. All of a sudden my knees give way and then I am on the floor. That happened last night again. I finally went to sleep on the floor.
I decided to take a rest from my blog. When I get better I will start again. I hope you all will understand.
Remember the meetings will begin on September 21. I hope this will all be behind me by then.

From Filer's Files
South Africa OrbsJohannesburg -- Clinton Morris reports, “After witnessing these orange orbs twice last year and two discs, one brownish red and the other silver. I actually saw an orange orb eject out of the center of the silver disc that was no more than 120 meters above my head at the time.” I've spent nearly a year outside my home EVERY night. It even snowed in Johannesburg last year which is very rare as you can imagine, I've been pretty diligent in keeping observation. The amount of orbs I'm seeing lately has almost tripled in the last three months. I would normally see about three to five a night and note times and directions in my journal.
What became apparent was that the majority of these craft were not satellites, aircraft, balloons or anything other than orbs of orange/white light. What's disturbing is that we are now seeing sometimes five an hour. I even had one friend with me suggest the flight paths were outlining letters in the sky (really?) I'm going to now keep detailed descriptions of the directions and heights of each sighting and try test his theory. It may be wilder than own...I gave up trying to post individual sightings as a fruitless task due to the sheer number I'm able to observe on any clear night.
I've invited a few friends with me to see "the show" as I call it and have had a few interesting responses. My favorite was a girlfriend that called them Angels. I've seen a disc 90-100 meters across that spits out 30 meter glowing orbs at random intervals.
As a scientist making careful observations daily, the number of craft visible whilst other aircraft are in the sky at the same time is disturbing in itself. Another interesting fact is up until I take a friend out to see "the show" they all say they've never seen anything like it. Afterwards they call me and say "did you see the one flying southeast at 7:30 pm last night?" It confirms I'm not crazy and their calls reassure me. I've got an excel spreadsheet of sightings going back now 12 months. There is a definite increase in these things buzzing around up there. Thanks for the weekly file!

Bigfoot likely source of eerie sounds in Oregon swamp
Sylvia and Denise Minthorn – Edge of the soggy wetlands where hair-raising sounds are heard
Bigfoot or animals? Strange sounds coming from
swamp on Umatilla Indian Reservation
By Richard Cockle for The Oregonian
January 20, 2013 - Nobody ventures into this soggy wetland on the edge of Mission on the Umatilla Indian Reservation after dark when the shrieks begin. Resident Sylvia Minthorn once thought about plunging in to find the source of the cries. “I used to play back there when I was a kid,” she says. “But then I thought, ‘What if I do find something? Then what am I going to do?’
The eerie late-night serenades began in November and emanate from a brushy swamp on the Umatilla Indian Reservation east of Pendleton, Oregon. The cries range from high-pitched screams to basso profundo roars.
"It's causing an uproar around here," said Sylvia Minthorn, who lives in a tribal housing unit near the swamp, where she used to play as a child.
She's seen grown men's hair stand on end when the shrieks commence.
Colleen Chance, a tribal housing authority employee, keeps a recording of the howls on her iPhone. "It's kind of spooky," she said. "Some say it's foxes, some say it's a female coyote and some say it's Sasquatch. I don't know what it is."
So far no one's pinpointed the source of the noise on this rugged 178,000-acre reservation that extends into northeastern Oregon's Blue Mountains and is home to about 1,500 people. The swamp in question borders the old reservation community of Mission, in a canyon north of the Wildhorse Resort and Casino.
Phone calls about the wails started coming in last month to the housing authority, and the office has had a half dozen so far. More could come in because the cries are continuing from time to time.
Some tenants of the reservation's 190 rentals and 32 homes admitted being afraid and one man reported that his dogs were too terrified to go outside, said Josh Franken, the housing authority's interim director.
"This guy was rather scared himself," Franken said. A rumor quickly spread that the cries were made by "a young Bigfoot that had got separated from the rest of his clan," he said.
It's difficult to shrug off the accounts, said Marcus Luke, a housing authority homeownership counselor. Many on the reservation "are woodsy-type folks," familiar with animals and not prone to taking fright at nighttime commotion, he said.
Daughter and mother Sylvia and Denise Minthorn have both heard the strange nighttime cries coming from the brushy wetland behind them. Denise thinks whatever is in the swamp is calling to another creature elsewhere on the 178,000-acre Umatilla Indian Reservation.
Some members of the Confederated Umatilla, Walla Walla and Cayuse tribes believe the noises come from Bigfoot, the mythical manlike creature said to roam Pacific Northwest forests.
Bigfoot is part of the tribal culture, tradition and spiritual beliefs, said Luke, a follower of the Washat, or Seven Drums religion, and a longhouse drummer and singer. "We have stories about it," he said.
Carl Sheeler, wildlife program manager for the tribes, said several animals in this corner of Oregon are known for making strange noises, including cougars. "When they are breeding, it is absolutely hair-raising," he said.
"And the first time a person hears a fox calling in the night, kind of echoing around the canyons, it raises the hair on the back of your neck," Sheeler said. "That wetland is a perfect place to have an echoing call sound eerie."
But many who've heard the racket dismiss such notions. "Foxes do sound creepy," said Sylvia Minthorn. "But it's not the same sound, not even close."
Her mother, Denise Minthorn, believes more than one creature is out there in the darkness. She's heard shrieks from two directions at once, as if two animals were communicating.
"It was no noise I've ever heard before," she said. "It was like barroom brawls and laughter."
Armand Minthorn, Sylvia Minthorn's uncle and a tribal spiritual leader, said he may have stumbled onto evidence of Bigfoot's presence while hunting in the Blue Mountains many years ago.
"Right in the middle of the road was this great big footprint, perhaps 16 or 18 inches long and manlike,” he said. The enormous stride carried it across the road, leaving one footprint in the middle, he said. Nevertheless, he said, the current shrieks could be anything. "We probably will never know what made those sounds," he said.
I was born on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. Aileen

May 26, 2013 – Rochester, Minnesota – 7 to 8 PM CDT
Description: The witness took this photo with an Iphone. He did not say anything about the photo other than the comment: “Cigar or Tube Shaped?” The witness also said that the photo was taken in a northwest direction. I have written to the witness to find out if the object was seen or later discovered in the background of a photo. In either case the object appears intriguing.
Response to Investigator Questions: I saw the object. It was there for awhile before I took the picture. The photo is looking north/northwest. I was driving to the Twin Cities from Rochester, MN.
