  2. I always wondered if she killed the baby..accident or not..and then caused the explosion and disappeared. Probably not but it was always a wonder of mine. If she was vulnersble maybe the online guy convinced her to get rid of the baby and then she could be with him. It happens.
  3. Just got a call from NYC, NY (went to voicemail) saying they have suspended my social security number due to suspicious activity. “Press 1 if you want to hear about this case. Thank you.” So they are using that too.

  10. Just so you can continue the rant equally throughout the year........haha! And just as you suspected, it was a northern Indian thing! Full Moon Names and Meanings Many human cultures have given names to the full moon throughout the year. Different full moon names can be found among the Chinese, Celtic, Old English, and New Guinea cultures, to name a few. In addition, Native American tribes often used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons and gave a unique name to each recurring full moon. The full moon names were used to identify the entire month during which each occurred. Although many Native American Tribes gave distinct names to the full moon, the most well known names of the full moon come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area of New England and westward to Lake Superior. The Algonquin tribes had perhaps the greatest effect on the early European settlers in America, and the settlers adopted the Native American habit of naming the moons. They even invented some of their own names that have been passed down through time. The names given below aren't the only ones that have been used. Every full moon, with one exception, had variations on its name among various Algonquin tribes, not to mention other tribes throughout North America. But the names below are the most common. Some of the variations are also mentioned. January: The Wolf Moon In January snow gathers deep in the woods and the howling of wolves can be heard echoing in the cold still air. Some tribes called this moon the Snow Moon, but most often it was used for the next month. February: The Snow Moon Snow piles even higher in February, giving this moon its most common name. Among tribes that used this name for the January moon, the February moon was called the Hunger Moon due to the challenging hunting conditions. March: The Worm Moon Snow slowly begins to melt, the ground softens, and earthworms show their heads again and their castings or fecal matter can be found. Other signs of spring gave rise to other variations: the cawing of crows (the Crow Moon); the formation of crusts on the snow from repeated thawing and freezing (the Crust Moon); and the time for tapping maple trees (the Sap Moon). Christian settlers also called this the Lenten Moon and considered it the last moon of winter. April: The Pink Moon Flowers begin to appear, including the widespread grass pink or wild ground phlox. Other variations indicate more signs of full spring, such as Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, and Fish Moon (common among coastal tribes). May: The Flower Moon Flowers come into full bloom and corn is ready to plant. Also called the Corn Planting Moon and the Milk Moon. June: The Strawberry Moon Strawberry-picking season reaches its peak during this time. This is one of the few names that was universal to all Algonquin tribes. July: The Buck Moon Buck deer start growing velvety hair-covered antlers in July. Frequent thunderstorms in the New England area also resulted in the name Thunder Moon. Some tribes also used Hay Moon. August: The Sturgeon Moon The sturgeon, a large fish common to the Great Lakes and other nearby bodies of water, is most easily caught during this month. The reddish appearance of the moon through the frequent sultry hazes of August also prompted a few tribes to dub it the Red Moon. Other names included the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon. September: The Harvest Moon Many of the Native American tribes' staple foods, such as corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and rice, are ready for gathering at this time. The strong light of the Harvest Moon allowed European farmers to work late into the night to harvest their crops. The Harvest Moon does not always occur in September. Traditionally, the name goes to the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, which falls during October once or twice a decade. Sometimes the September full moon was called the Corn Moon. October: The Hunter's Moon After the fields have been reaped, the leaves begin to fall and the deer are fat and ready for eating. Hunters can ride easily over the fields' stubble, and the fox and other animals are more easily spotted. Some years the Harvest Moon falls in October instead of September. November: The Beaver Moon At this time of year the beavers are busy preparing for winter, and it's time to set beaver traps and secure a store of warm fur before the swamps freeze over. Some tribes called this the Frosty Moon. December: The Cold Moon Winter takes a firm hold and temperatures plummet at this time. Sometimes this moon is also called the Long Night Moon as the winter nights lengthen and the moon spends more time above the horizon opposite a low sun. The full moon name often used by Christian settlers is the "Moon before Yule". Blue Moon Note that due to the 29-day lunar cycle the exact dates of the full moon move every year. Most seasons have three full moons, but because of the variation some seasons have four full moons. The term "blue moon" was used to identify one of these extra full moons. A mistaken definition in the March 1946 edition of Sky and Telescope magazine claimed the blue moon fell on the second full moon of the calendar month. This mistake caused widespread misunderstanding until it was finally corrected in 1999.
  11. It's always the current husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, significant other. And they are always very helpful and ruled out & cleared. Meanwhile evidence is destroyed & then holy crap something or someone talks and wallah all fingers point to the person that was supposedly innocent. DNA testing has come along way & this cold case or whatever some blogger calls it should be reinvestigated ASAP. Maybe she was mentally challenged but that doesn't mean she wasn't a victim!

    Thank you!
  13. You can also argue justification under Title 18, Chapter 5, Subchapter 503(a)(1). § 503. Justification generally. (a) General rule.--Conduct which the actor believes to be necessary to avoid a harm or evil to himself or to another is justifiable if: (1) the harm or evil sought to be avoided by such conduct is greater than that sought to be prevented by the law defining the offense charged; (2) neither this title nor other law defining the offense provides exceptions or defenses dealing with the specific situation involved; and (3) a legislative purpose to exclude the justification claimed does not otherwise plainly appear. (b) Choice of evils.--When the actor was reckless or negligent in bringing about the situation requiring a choice of harms or evils or in appraising the necessity for his conduct, the justification afforded by this section is unavailable in a prosecution for any offense for which recklessness or negligence, as the case may be, suffices to establish culpability.

  17. I still say her on and off boyfriend had something to do with this. I wish someone with resources would look into this case. So so sad.
  18. In 2007, 33-year old Joey Lynn Offutt lived in Sykesville, Pennsylvania in a house purchased by her mother, Sherry Hallet. She had three children: two daughters, aged nine and two, and a six-week old newborn son named Alexis Alfred Brolin III, a.k.a. “Lex”. The father of Joey’s youngest two children was her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Alexis Brolin Jr., who lived 30 minutes away in Clearfield. Even though Joey and Alexis had a rocky relationship and were not ready to live together again, they were hoping to get married sometime in the future. Joey suffered from developmental disabilities, as a psychologist once diagnosed her as having the mind of a 14-year old, so she had trouble holding down jobs and maintaining long-term relationships. For the first part of July, Joey wanted to spend some time alone with her newborn son, so she made arrangements for her oldest daughter to visit family in Virginia while her youngest daughter stayed with Alexis in Clearfield. At approximately 4:00 AM on July 12, Joey’s neighbourhood was awakened by a loud explosion and her house was discovered to be on fire. When the fire department arrived and put out the blaze, they found Lex’s burned body in the bathtub. Joey and her 1994 Saturn Coupe were missing, though her purse and identification were left behind. The medical examiner was unable to determine Lex’s exact cause of death, though it was ruled he was likely already dead before the fire started. It turned out the fire was arson, as a gas can was found in the house. Raw hamburger meat was discovered on the kitchen counter with maggots on it and tests determined that the meat had likely been sitting there since sometime between July 3-5. On July 15, Joey’s Saturn Coupe was discovered over 60 miles away in State College. It was parked at the Nittany Gardens Apartments, a location where Joey and Alexis had lived together in 2003. Joey’s family did not believe she abandoned the vehicle herself since she was known for being a terrible driver and the Saturn was neatly backed into its parking space while the position of the driver’s seat suggested someone larger than Joey had been behind the wheel. It turned out that no one could actually confirm having seen Joey in the week prior to her disappearance. Here’s the confusing timeline… -July 3: Alexis claimed he was at Joey’s house and they got into argument because he did not like her giving Lex a bath inside a dirty sink. When Alexis left, this turned out to be the last time he saw Joey or Lex -July 4: Alexis made repeated phone calls to Joey’s house which were not answered or returned. Since Joey had trouble handling criticism and would often shut down following an argument, Alexis figured she was giving him the silent treatment -July 5: Alexis went back to Joey’s house, but there was no answer at the front door. That same day, a neighbour claimed he passed by Joey on the sidewalk pushing a stroller. The neighbour said Joey ignored him when he greeted her and he could not even be certain a baby was inside the stroller. This would turn out to be the last confirmed sighting of Joey -July 6: Alexis received a phone call from a nurse at a state home health agency, who had a scheduled appointment to see Lex at Joey’s house that day. The nurse claimed there was no answer, even though Joey’s Saturn Coupe was parked outside. There was also mail piled up at the front door and when she peeked in through the window, she could see a baby seat and diaper bag inside -July 7: Alexis visited Joey’s house and there was no answer at the door, but claimed that her Saturn Coupe was no longer parked outside -July 8: Alexis visited the house again and even though the Saturn had returned, there was still no answer at the door, so he left Joey a note -July 9-10: Alexis and Joey’s mother, Sherry, continued making repeated phone calls to Joey’s house which went unanswered -July 11: Alexis hears from the nurse from the home health agency, who tells him that Joey missed another scheduled appointment. Alexis meets the nurse at the house, where mail is still piled up at the front door and Lex’s baby seat and diaper bag appear to be in the same place. The big difference is that Joey’s Saturn Coupe is missing again. Lex leaves another note for Joey, informing her that he will contact the police if she does not call him by tomorrow -July 12: witnesses tell police they saw Joey’s Saturn parked outside her house again at 3:00 AM, one hour before the fire. Later that day, Alexis finally goes to the police station to fill out a missing persons report and is informed about Joey’s disappearance and the death of his son Due to her naivety and immaturity, there was speculation that Joey might have fallen prey to someone she met on the Internet. In 2006, Sherry was granted temporary custody of Joey’s children after it was discovered Joey had been corresponding online with a man from California, who told her he was a photographer and wanted her to pose as a model and do some pornography. There was fear that Joey was communicating with a sexual predator and potentially jeopardizing her children’s safety and after learning that her children would be turned out to her mother, Joey threw a violent fit and had to be escorted from her home in handcuffs by the police. She had to undergo counselling before she was allowed to regain custody of her kids. A few weeks before she went missing, the Internet service in Joey’s house was turned off due to non-payment, so investigators could not find anything on her computer to suggest her Internet activity played a role in her disappearance. They did uncover some interesting posts Joey had been making in an Internet group for single mothers since 2005. She said a number of unsavoury things about Alexis, including that he was a felon and former drug addict and she had filed a “protection from abuse” order against him. Joey even claimed that Alexis’ son from a previous relationship had been sexually abusing her daughter, which led to her being removed from their home. However, it’s worth mentioning that I’ve been unable to find any official corroboration for Joey’s claims about Alexis. When this case was featured on an episode of “Disappeared” in 2012, Alexis was interviewed and none of these allegations were mentioned at all. In fact, Joey’s mother and sister were also interviewed on the show and they seemed to get along with Alexis. The only mention of Joey having her children taken away was because of her online correspondence with the man from California. Even though he turned down one request for a polygraph test, police have stated that Alexis was otherwise very cooperative in the investigation and they have never considered him a suspect. Joey has since been declared legally dead by her family and investigators believe she was a victim of foul play. I cover this case on this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold” podcast: http://trailwentcold.com/2019/03/13/the-trail-went-cold-episode-115-joey-lynn-offutt/ Sources: http://charleyproject.org/case/joey-lynn-offutt https://wjactv.com/news/local/search-for-missing-sykesville-woman-continues-9-years-after-disppearance http://www.thecourierexpress.com/jeffersonian_democrat/news/local/missing-sykesville-woman-declared-dead/article_d043e190-17db-5982-8c87-45059dade0ca.html http://www.findjoey.org/ https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/usedtobedoe/offutt-joey-lynn-07-12-2007-t12393.html#p76582 (this post contains the details about Joey’s accusations against Alexis in her Internet group)
  19. So sad, someone has to know something.
  20. Some advise to put a radio at the hen house and have it on 24/7. Will keep the fox away, even the red fox that moves around during daytime hours.
  21. Factual for even old bottles of water. Unless the water is in glass, it needs to be used fairly quickly.
  22. "more lenient consequence"? I agree with Katie. That child is suffering and not one more second of it should happen. Period.
  23. I have heard that its just not good to leave a plastic bottle of water in a car in any amount. When the plastic heats up, toxins can seep in to the water and it can be harmful for consumption. Not sure it that is totally true, but why chance it.
  24. Petee


    Yes, where that old bar was really contaminated the history and probably the land around it. Nothing good ever comes from a bar. The people who lived there were all country people, and decent. There is an entrance to one of the old John DuBois lumber mills back there also. He was an amazing man.
  25. If I see a child or a pet in a hot car that is suffering.....I'm smashing a window and rescuing the innocent, bill or no bill. I will deal with the consequences later knowing I saved a life.
  26. Maybe that's part of the problem. Natural selection has not been allowed to work properly.
