As many of you know, the entity known as Bigfoot Project Investments, formerly Searching for Bigfoot, aka Tom Biscardi and company, is offering a cool million for information leading to the capture or body of a “bona-fide” Bigfoot.

Their site states the following:

“To silence all doubters Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. is devoting all their resources and putting their money where their mouth is to prove it. That’s why we have issued this Bigfoot Million Dollar Bounty.”

But according to their latest SEC filing “all their resources,” according to their spread sheets, as of January 31st, 2017 is, wait for it…. $36K and change. Not even “Fifty Large.”

When it comes to investigating Biscardi and companies, I have a little experience:

Of course two of these three items are nothing new. We saw them on the 2008 Searching for Bigfoot Business Plan, that Rick Dyer had gotten from Biscardi during the 2008 hoax. It wasn’t until August, 2008 before the rubber suit came into their possession.

This is material that was certified just a few weeks ago,

Currently, Bigfoot Project Investments trades for $0.65 a share.

Definition of Irony

I understand Mr. Biscardi had a show on his weekly program, Bigfoot Live Radio, that featured a segment on Rick Dyer yesterday by interviewing former Bigfoot Tracker Veep, BJ Brashears.

I figured since I’ve been the

Well needless to say there were audio issues with the program so I never got to hear it.

Tonight I was looking around for the archive version finding humor in this whole thought of Biscardi putting the digs into Dyer, when I discovered that The SFBI Facebook page had a link to a Bigfoot “Hall of Fame.”

Ironic

Left the day after Biscardi had a Radio show outing Dyer.

Maybe Tom was flattered that his picture was prominently displayed amongst others like Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Derek Randles and Loren Coleman, all great folks in my opinion. But I also noticed Rick Dyer was there. And Todd Standing.

I also noticed it was a Wix page.

So my curiosity went up and ran the Whois on the page on the site.

Guess who owns it???

 

Guess Who

Dyer’s Personal information has been censored.

Now that’s my definition of irony!!!!

 


Squatch-D Radio Back!!!!

Chris Bennett and I are so glad to be back on the airwaves at Beyond Borders Paranormal Radio Network. Visit our other sister shows there as well!!!

NewRadioLogo

 

The show can be heard on Sundays 10PM EST (9CST), and accessed through the Beyond Borders website or by going to SquatchdetectiveRadio.com. The show archive page is also up and functioning where you can listen to the program replay or download it.

Our guest lineup is filling fast and we are booked until June. More guest announcements this week.

We’re also excited to be doing an “Out of the Box” show every third Sunday of the month, featuring a guest on topics other than our hairy friends.


Upcoming stuff…

Tomorrow night I will be going on the Giant’s Bigfoot Radio program for an hour long discussion on Sasquatch and who knows what other topics may come up.

Next Friday I will be on Scarefest Radio, talking about last years Scarefest 8 and this years Scarefest 9, where they’ve already announced one of my favorite actors, Malcolm McDowell, will be appearing.

Of course, on May 6th, 7th and 8th,  I am excited and super stoked to be a participant in the 2016 Pennsylvania Bigfoot Camping Adventure.

They’ll be a screening of The Beast of Whitehall and special guest from Mountain Monsters, John “Trapper” Tice. (Yes we know folks, its television so chillax. Be fun to meet the guy and have a few laughs). Even Squatch-D can let his hair down once in a while… (okay I know…what hair!)

Looking forward to meeting a bunch of people, and getting boots on the ground in Pennsylvania and do some research.

 

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

This year seems a bit strange to me. For the first time in several years nothing major was going on. No Ketchum Project, No Sierra Shooting style news, the Sykes project is pretty much finished. Kind of sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the “next big thing.”

Nonetheless the field team and I did stretch our legs a bit this year however, although nothing at all to report we had a wonderful time and getting out there with one of our Western NY folks Mike!

                 20150523_11323720150523_125908

We have gotten a trickle of sightings reports coming in, and we are actively investigating this long term situation. We visited the property and are extremely excited at the prospect of obtaining some evidence.

 


Air time!!!

Radio2

We are now looking for guests for Squatchdetective Radio as we go to a whole new user friendly format.

We will no longer be a live format show, unfortunately because of schedules and finding a network host that could work for us. We just couldn’t make a live show work since our hiatus, so we’ve gone to this more polished format.

We may however once a month or so do a Google Hangout Free for all… Be kind of cool to see who just may show up!

Chris Bennett and I look forward to getting on with getting on!! If anyone is interested on being a guest, just drop me a line at radio@squatchdetective.com.


Legal Beagle… On to the BS D’jour!

On Thursday, May 14th, 2015 I received a “nasty-gram” in my email from Biscardi attorney and Biscardi business partner, Dennis Kazubowski.

It started with this wonderful quip…

“On March 25, 2008, you signed a Limited Association Agreement with Searching for Bigfoot Inc. which is attached to this letter. According to the document you signed, you agreed to hold in confidence any information gathered and further agreed not to disclose or reveal to any person or entity any information discovered under the agreement without the express prior written consent of the other parties.”

                              -Letter to Steve Kulls from Biscardi attorney, Dennis Kazubowski 5/14/15

 

Well I did sign a Limited Association Agreement for a single expedition on March 25, 2008 which would serve as my last outing as a contractor with Biscardi.

I find it a bit odd that an attorney would list this as the first salvo in an attempt to have me remove my Blog and Hall of Shame pages on Biscardi and his activities.

Because this is what the confidentiality agreement ACTUALLY said…

“The parties to this agreement agree to HOLD IN CONFIDENCE any information gathered from this expedition and further not to disclose or reveal any person or entity or any information disclosed under this agreement…”

 

He kind of left out the whole, from this expedition,” part. Since I revealed nothing about my last expedition with SFBI part on my Website or Blog… that’s out.

The confidentiality clause was part of a LIMITED agreement, clearly defined and stated within the agreement.

As far as the Hall of Shame Page, my book “Fifty Large,” both California, and New York have a ONE year statute of limitation on defamation claims. Nevada, the State in which Biscardi’s enterprises have filed there incorporations has a two year statute. Since the Hall of Shame Page came out in 2010 and Fifty Large in 2011, they’re out as fair game for any consideration for defamation.

As far as libel, defamation, what have I said that was not backed up by fact?

That Biscardi was involved in the 2008 hoax? The other two hoaxers implicated him.

It was his words and actions and statements (everyone remember “touched it, felt it, smelled it, on Fox News?”) put his responsibility in question.

Why didn’t he sue Dyer and Whitton? In “Not Typical Bigfoot Movie,” Biscardi stated he would sue anyone that would hoax him?

Another element in a defamation case is a falsity with malice or malicious intent.  The latest blog I had posted simple facts and what a cited source had told me.

Biscardi claiming to see a video of your truly riding ATV’s with two hoaxers, as proof I had set him up, when no such video exists because it never happened; THAT is defamation.

Reporting facts, citing sourced information and analysis of such facts is NOT defamation or libel.

Editorial license, is also not defamation nor libel when there is evidence and actions to bring up reasonable questioning. Even parody when it pertains to public figures, (which Biscardi is rest assuredly) as long it does not blur the lines of truth.

It is a fact that Biscardi set up a foreign company with a man under indictment who subsequently plead guilty, for a Ponzi Scheme,who was the former CFO for Searching for Bigfoot.

David A. Nilsen (Source: Monterey County Weekly.com)

In fact the Monterey County Weekly called Nilsen, “Monterey’s Madoff.” In reference to convicted Ponzi schemer, Bernie Madoff.

Nilsen was indicted on September 8th, 2009 and the indictment was unsealed on September 10th, 2009 after he had surrendered to authorities in San Jose. Nilsen subsequently pled guilty in a plea bargain in Oct. 24th, 2011 and received a sentence of 97 months, in 2012. (Source: FBI.gov)

Very clear from the Nevada Department of State, this Foreign Corporation headed by Nilsen and Biscardi, was clearly after Nilsen’s indictment (June 8th, 2010). It’s status was revoked, however I am unclear of the reasoning behind the revocation, and it could have been something as simple as a missed filing.

Over 250 pages of police reports, public records and an SFBI Business Plan given to me from Rick Dyer which he had gotten from Biscardi.  (Source: Steve Kulls)

My personal opinion of Biscardi, is irrelevant, I do not go on this blog, my sites or other Podcasts and speak untruth without the evidence to back such up about anyone.

And I am not bullied so easily, especially when I lined my ducks up carefully. That’s my profession. My suggestion; “Don’t poke this bear.”


On the road again…

What a year it has been so far! I didn’t get the chance to get out to Salt Fork this year due to work commitments but did do the yearly Cabela’s Rare Strange and Unusual Sightings Weekend in March.

This year I am happy to add two more dates to the speaking line up:

On January 21st, 2015 Yoghita Patel of the Wall Street Journal penned an article that she claimed was going to be one thing, but turned out to be something completely different.

Essentially the article became a fluff piece for none other than Carmine “Tom” Biscardi and profiled his new company, Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. It did cover some criticisms of Biscardi but I believe it’s a fluff piece because it left out the evidence and discoveries.

BN-GN441_BIGFOO_M_20150120161959

Tom Biscardi on Bigfoot Black Friday – Teeth comparison perhaps. (Credit: Reuters)

I was personally involved in speaking at length with Yoghita, at her request. Forwarded documents. Apparently her editors must have been afraid to tell you what she found out and what I am about to here.

See the gist of the WSJ article, was covering Biscardi’s new company (however old schtick to us that have watched his hijinks over the decades) and his SEC filing to have a public offering for his new company.

To this effort, I applaud Biscardi, because it now lifts a big veil of secrecy behind his efforts finances.


Getting involved…

I was first contacted by William Allen Barnes about getting in contact with Yoghita in late 2013. He claimed she was doing a piece on Biscardi, but was also going to offer an alternative to Biscardi, in the Falcon Project and how his fund raising efforts differed from that of Biscardi.

He explained to Yoghita if anyone knew some insight to Biscardi it would be me.

We spoke and corresponded for almost a year on the article, and it appeared a lot of time was being spent on it.

Biscardi – Nilsen Connection

In late 2007 through 2009, Real Estate mogul, David Nilsen after initially contributing $50,000 as an investment into Searching For Bigfoot, became the company’s CFO.

Cedar

Nilsen later was indicted in late 2009, and subsequently jailed in 2012 with an 8 year sentence for a Ponzi Scheme involving his Real Estate investment company.

Nilsen’s indictment charges. (Source: Squatchdetective.com)

A question I pondered in my freshman book, “50 Large,” how much of Cedar’s monies, if any, got shuffled over to SFBI?

After much time going over Biscardi’s Georgia fiasco, with Yoghita, we came to the meat of the matter. I described my concerns since Nilsen was the CFO of SFBI at the time.

Since Biscardi was the CEO and majority shareholder at SFBI it would have been impossible for him to have not known about the monies, and given the fact that long time Biscardi cling on, Dennis Kazabouski was still involved as a controller in SFBI.

Coincidentally, the new company, Kazabouski just was assigned as temporary controller due to the immediate resignation of Sara Reynolds, filed with the SEC in March 2015.

Sara Reynolds

ADDRESS WITHHELD

Bigfoot Project Investments Inc.

Dear Board of Directors and Officers:

It is with regret that I tender my resignation from Bigfoot Project Investments Ins board of directors and CFO/Secretary/Treasurer, effective immediately.

I am grateful for having had the opportunity to serve on the board of this fine organization from the beginning and I offer my best wishes for its continued success.

Sincerely,

Sara Reynolds

In April of 2014 I received a call from Yoghita and she seemed quite pleased  that my intuition was correct. She claimed she had contacted the Cedar Funding Bankruptcy Trustee, and discovered there were payments to SFBI shortly before Cedar’s demise in the amount of around $250K.  (Maybe my next book should be “250 Large!”)

money

Will the next book be “250 Large?”

This also goes in tandem with Biscardi and Nilsen starting a short lived foreign corporation called New Limited Concept, Inc. in June 2010, after Nilsen’s indictment. Foreign corporation?

 


On anther note: Bigfoot Project Investments Inc. And their worth is…

Over at the Hall of Shame, and in “50 Large“, we’ve featured the 2008 SFBI Business plan which lists itself as and Entertainment company. Likewise, Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. lists itself as a Movie Distribution company.

In January 2013, SFBI no longer became an independent company, but “bought out” by the new company for $924K by issuing a promissory note and issuing over 4 million shares of the new company’s stock, valued at $0.10 a share.

As part of the asset transfer agreement Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. received the following assets:

Footprint cast of Bigfoot – 73 original casts

Photographs of Dead Creature from Strickler, Arkansas 1994 Dear Creature Incident

109-inch Skeleton

Various Media Artifacts – Video TV News Media – 52 news stories

Contract to sell Dinosaur fossil – most recent estimate by Paleontologist $1.2 million dollars

Rubber suit from 2008 hoax

Various DNA samples – Hair, and nails

License to use 6 dinosaur displays

Exclusive rights to the Bigfoot Website

Exclusive rights to the Bigfoot Live Radio Show

Exclusive rights to the Bigfoot Live Radio Show Website

360 hours of raw footage from expeditions for movie development

Various DVD Movies and Documentary film projects

Exclusive rights to all current contracts negotiated under Searching For Bigfoot, Inc.

The above list is a complete list of the fixed assets for Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc.

It was apparently obvious that they were using the template from the SFBI business plan, and not so descriptive, as we all now the descriptions in the original plan were inflated and filled with misrepresentations. Of course it looked good when trying to show potential investors especially when you valuate your materials at over … $17 Million Dollars.

5212962_orig

The 2008 SFBI Business plan asset list.

What I do find a bit “odd” is that none of their equipment, i.e. night vision gear, Thermal Imager, Talon Net system (which never worked), parabolic mics, camping equipment. All of which is NOT listed on their asset list either then or now.

According to SFBI former veep, Robert “Javabob” Schmalzbach, they never disturbed the skeleton, only removing a small sample. Why is it on their inventory sheet now?

The contract to sell a dinosaur fossil? That contract is now over seven years old if it hasn’t been rescinded yet. The original agreement stated that Biscardi had to sell the fossil for no less than $5 million.

After collecting over $700,000 under the guise of SFBI, through 2008, gone now is the goal of establishing museums. I am unsure of the amounts collected for Museums through 2013 when they became a non-independent entity.

Also on the list of assets, is the Rubber Suit from the 2008 Georgia Hoax. Wow, there’s an asset. Remember the one that Joshua P. Warren tried to sell on EBay for investor Bill Lett? Lett states Warren contacted him, but we all know who gave him Bill’s phone number. After all Biscardi had been on as a guest on Warren’s radio show a few times. The connection was quite clear.

In 2008 you claim 17 mil in assets.

In 2013 you pay $924K for SFBI.

Two years later this is what the new company claims its assets are:

Less than $8000 and only $2300 is in cash.

Their liabilities are inflated due to the buyout of the SFBI investors which they’re still on the hook for:

Till Next Time!!!

Squatch-D

Here begins  lesson #1:

Don’t act like it’s new if its old.

Today I read a blog about an old time photo that said, “we knew nothing on it..until now.”

Really???

                point

My file containing the prose written on the back of the photo from 2010.

 

In 2006, in this article on Cryptomundo, Loren Coleman writes about the picture and references it to Janet and Colin Bord’s Bigfoot Casebook (originally written in 1982 there is an updated version), a must read for any newbie.

It’s on page 27. Although it does not include the picture of the back plate it states,

The photograph shows an unidentified animal shot by trappers in Lillooet, BC in the early 20th century.

                                                          – Bigfoot Casebook, Janet & Colin Bord, Page 27. 

Craig Woolheater also wrote this article on Cryptomundo in November 2006, a virtual repeat of todays blog I read except Cryptomundo included the photo of the writing.

       Bigfoot_dead_Web3bBigfoot_dead_Web3a

 

But I will give you NEW…

The first line of Craig’s 2006 post was this…

“This photo was sent to Tom Biscardi by Lyle Billett of Victoria Canada. I found the photo on his website and wanted to share it, as I have never seen it before and imagined that many, or most, have not either.”

                                                                                       – Craig Woolheater, Cryptomundo, 2006

According to the Bords pic was taken in the early 20th Century, The Biscardi copy says 1894. Why wouldn’t the Bords just say the “late nineteenth century?”

I would say lets track down Lyle Billett and ask but unfortunately, Lyle passed away in January of this year, and to be exact he lived in Nanaimo, British Columbia.

 

Analysis… The writing doesn’t appear in the Bord’s book. Could the handwriting have been added later? It should be considered since the only handwriting photo came from Tom Biscardi’s site. Could it be Billett’s notes? Well I guess its one mystery that went to the grave.

How’s that for, “Something we didn’t now..until now?”

 I guess someone rehashing does have it’s benefits.

Lesson # 2

When we first, fail to learn by history, we are doomed to repeat it.

This whole Todd Standing thing has me a bit perplexed. Are we bound to continually repeat things already proven?

See in 2006 when I set the Hall of Shame up and through 2010 when Todd came out with puppet-face, no one disputed it was all BS.

He disappears for a bit after the “Puppet-face,” only to reemerge, reinventing himself in 2011 with a similarly angle picture who I call “Blinky.”

We ignored him like some suggested we do to Dyer. Here’s  the result:

Dyer self implodes, admits at least body on tour is a fake while Standing goes on shows with Canadian compatriot, Les Stroud.

How did ignoring him work?

Let’s put aside his evidence for a minute. Standings theories on Sasquatch, although some are a bit non-conformist, they are based on some science and research. Standing sounds intelligent, presents himself as knowledgeable and is for all intensive purposes, seemingly a very nice person. All in of itself good.

But you put in the evidence that he has come up with, which is all over the top, and all bets are now off. Put emotion aside people.

Now people who weren’t around for the first couple of rounds with this guy, are new and defending him by waving the no proof banner, which is bunk. But some is good and some new stuff is still being deciphered and some I will debunk here today.

But blind faith backing in light of the evidence…hmm…

Didn’t we just go through this with a guy by the name Dyer? Have we not learned a thing?

Now all of a sudden we have some people, who haven’t outright endorsed his work, sit on a stage with Standing, and people come out of the wood work to defend him.

I guess we haven’t learned.  

Of course, some will say, they don’t trust him, may have more things to look at or will need more time to tell.

10259932_702166426472829_5410408452812074948_n

“I am not accepting Todd at his word.” –Dr. Jeff Meldrum

  A fair approach I feel. Like I stated yesterday, it appears Dr. Jeff will hold court in the near future over the Toddster’s evidence, but my court was held 8 years ago with the disappeared Sylvanic Video #1 and my court has been long adjourned. Once a hoaxer… always a hoaxer.

That’s why you go to the history books first. Or the people who sit next to them now may be in for a rough ride.

He had 8 years to defend himself and in the beginning, as with most hoaxers, he got caught outright making his very first video (featuring his sister as the main character) disappear. We forget that?

It’s the blind faith followers that always are the most vocal and generally get the most emotional over the situation. When you ask them to debunk evidence submitted, you get no fact but just opinion, and blanket statements that you have no evidence.

People try to say…well if Les Stroud is behind him…

Let’s look at a known hoaxer…

          marxivan_marx 1977 hoax

One of the original hoaxers, Ivan Marx (left) and one of many of his Bigfoots on right. 

 

Is it any coincidence that Morgan Matthews started his Bigfoot documentary with a hoaxer’s comments?

But in the 80’s Pulitzer Prize nominated, Yale educated, Castleton State College Anthropologist Dr. Warren L. Cook believed in the veracity of the Marx films.  These remarks came in 1984, long after Marx had been exposed as a hoaxer by Peter Byrne in 1971 and disappeared only to have reemerged and reinvented himself. (Again a familiar theme with hoaxers.)

 

cook

Dr. Cook said of Marx…

“Demonstrably, Ivan Marx of Burney, Shasta County, is a very accomplished nature photographer, skilled woodsman, and animal tracker. By inquiring of Indian and Eskimo informants, and studying Sasquatch habit patterns. Marx would appear to have learned how-to be at the right spot at the right time, camera at the ready.

Ivan feels disoriented in the bowels of a skyscraper and is happiest in the wilderness. He frets until back with his “sweetie”, as he calls his devoted wife, Peggy, who often accompanies him in the wilds. Zealous to preserve their modest, unfettered life style, Ivan and Peggy have invested a major portion of their lives coming up with the Bigfoot photos for which he is well known — some say notorious — among hominologists.

But precisely because year after year, he comes forth with such pictures, they are scorned by some or the other well known Bigfoot enthusiasts. He has equivalent distaste for them as ”great white hunter” types with a sour grapes” attitude toward him because they lack the skills and patience to get anywhere near a sasquatch except by chance.

Marx’s footage sometimes does not conform to the expected image and the specimens in his photos vary in color, size, volume, body fat and length or hair. When he first showed me his color photos, I carped at the domed appearance of the creatures’ skulls (a feature that has subsequently been corroborated by other eyewitnesses with whom I have spoken) and it got back to me that Marx had remarked to a mutual friend. ”I can’t photograph the creature the way them jollies think he ought to look, but only the way he is.”

My concern from the beginning was to establish whether Marx is telling the truth or faking the photos, words and deeds. Anyone who knows him will report that he is one of the greatest story tellers going — a contemporary Will Rogers.

Because my own professional reputation was at stake, since I first met Ivan and at the risk of losing his confidence I have ceaselessly sought to probe for inconsistencies, approaching the same point from different angles, months and years apart.

Doubtless conscious of this, it probably discomfits him but he has always been patient and never failed to give answers that seemed honest and frank. Initially, he and Peggy were unaware of being protagonists in a historical process, and that. It was important to document their photos chronologically and provide details of the content in which they were taken. This had never been done. Plain, unassuming folk, to them it was simply life experienced, year to year.

Until a sasquatch is examined, in the flesh, and the Marx photos are validated or refuted, I cannot be certain my judgment is correct, but I am of the opinion that Ivan and Peggy, while reticent in their personal lives, are steadfastly honest and it would be out of character for them to jeopardize their goal of documenting sasquatch by tainting genuine photos just to produce more.”

                                                                                 — Dr. Warren L. Cook, 1984

Ivan Marx was the one indeed to find the “Bossburg Cripple Foot” track… The castings used by Dr. Grover Krantz were found by Marx.

Joe Rhodes found the first set of tracks on Nov. 24, 1967 and Dahinden did call Marx about the report. However we must remember, at the time, Marx lived in Bossburg.

bosskrantz

A young Dr. Krantz in a 70’s documentary showing Marx’s “Bossburg Cripple Foot.”

However, the track, was found with Rene Dahinden and a local man by the name of Jim Hopkins sitting in the car while Marx checked for prints…

Several inches of snow had covered the ground that morning when Rene and Ivan Marx and a young local man named Jim Hopkins set out in Marx’s car to check an area along the banks of the Roosevelt River…Marx was away from the car only seconds before coming back: “Bigfoot Tracks!” he shouted. … the right foot was badly deformed.”

                                    – “Sasquatch” by Don Hunter with Rene Dahinden (1975) Pages: 153-154.

 

Only seconds. And Marx was driving… it was only months later when Marx tried to sell Byrne a video of a creature, supposedly the one with the bad foot, limping around.

bigfoot1

It don’t matter who endorses you… what matters is the EVIDENCE and the story behind it.

 

Lesson #3

Always recheck your work, especially when it’s not yours.

I on the other hand always try to look from answers up, down, left, right.

Some suggested that I guess a Todd detractor had made the changing images up. Standing stated that someone had sent him that photo. He didn’t describe who, but I do know Todd later circulated it, albeit without description leading many to believe that the picture was the original.

In fairness and telling it like it is, I could not find any original reference to that picture with any claim on it, like I had originally thought and had read by some. 

But what I have found out  WHO created the picture and when.

The picture was created, by a user on a forum here, on or around April 17th, 2013. I coincidently found it a year to the day it was posted.

However a post up at Dave Rodriguez’s (aka Pragmatic Theorist) blog, unveils something more infallible than Sweaty Yeti’s gif. It’s pretty condemning.

One of Dave’s more interesting and condemning work ups.

 

Lesson #4

What is past is prologue.

We predicted this months ago… Dyer self destructing.

Dyer again finds himself kicked out of a state with all his toys for sale. Rosa his girlfriend, (where in Dyer’s fantasy world she was his wife “Lily Dyer.”) gone… and Dyer taking refuge in or around Griffin, Georgia.

He’s been keeping low… but thanks to Randy Filopovic’s blog, we know exactly what Dyer’s is up to… trying to recover from his latest sociopathic meltdown.

Crap for sale… Location: Griffin, Georgia.

Lesson #5

They don’t go away… they never will.

Of course we’ve mentioned Carmine, Dyer and Standing, but what’s a good time without Linda Newton-Perry, who even after beating the sh** out of her here with her Team ESP BS… she continues just this last week, on April 12th, to post this…

LNPESPBS

Linda still spouting the same lies.

SSDD as they say or in LNP’s case SSDY, Y being for year. She’s not only a hoaxer and story teller, she’s BAD at it.

Nuff said, but we don’t want innocents giving her real stuff, because she is a front. That’s why every once in a while we need to nudge and spin the shark by it’s tail.

 

Lesson #6

When all of this seems like a bunch of hooey… thank the good Lord, it’s spring. Because now I have a lot less time to sit and read stuff from Standing, Dyer Fig-Newton, and the Snapple dude, and get my ass out into the field for some investigation and research.

Home sweet home.

Till Next Time,
