Yes, time for me to start bugging everyone to attend the Wake Up Now! Conference. Well, this time it is Wake Up Now II and I really didn’t think we would be lucky enough to make it past one, but here we are!
This year it will be held at the Albuquerque Uptown Marriott at 2101 Louisiana Blvd NE on August 10-12.
We are still adding speakers, but so far this is the list: Brooks Agnew, Nick Redfern, Bill Murphy, David Weatherly, Philip Clark, Helios and Nancy Wallace. Syfy’s Fact or Faked star, Bill Murphy, will be hosting for us again. He did such a fabulous job last year and I am really looking forward to seeing him and his wife Anita again! I am also really looking forward to finally meeting Nick Redfern in person!

Hope to see y’all there!
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Remember the Alamosaurus? Well, some new discoveries about the ancient sauropod dinosaur might make it tough to forget.
A paper published on Tuesday by researchers from Montana State University and the State Museum of Pennsylvania identifies the Alamosaurus as the largest that ever roamed North America.
MSU paleontologist Denver Fowler, one of the paper’s authors, told KRQE the Alamosaurus weighed around 70 tons when it roamed the Earth near the end of the Cretaceous period more than 65 million years ago.
New Mexico has made it onto another list that it doesn’t want to be on. This time it’s the Chaco Canyon region and it’s on the National Trust for Historic Preservation annual list of endangered historic places.
It’s not the park itself that is endangered. It’s the vast area around it, with hundreds of archeological sites and ancient roadways.
The National Trust advisor Theresa Pasquale said the threat comes from increased drilling for oil and natural gas.
“The development of those resources cannot come at the cost of destroying such a rich and diverse heritage,” Pasquale said.
Oil and gas industry leaders have argued for years that more limitations and restrictions hurt the industry and the economy, and increase energy costs.
“Once an archeological site is damaged or destroyed there is no restoring it the way it was,” said Barbara Burrell, a visitor at the Chaco Culture National Historic Park.
Park visitor, Albert Lowenstein, said today’s society is very materialistic and very shortsighted.
“I don’t know that we always recognize what we have while we have it until it’s gone,” Lowenstein stated.
Other historic places on this year’s endangered list include a Confederate fort in Alabama, jazz musician John Coltrane’s house on Long Island, and a huge 19th century Pillsbury flour mill in Minneapolis.

Roswell, NM, April 18, 2011 –(PR.com)– Roswell, New Mexico author and historian John LeMay will appear on the Jeff Rense Program, a nationwide radio show, on Friday, April 22, 2011 at 10 p.m. Central time. LeMay will discuss his new book, “Roswell USA: Towns That Celebrate UFOs, Lake Monsters, Bigfoot, and Other Weirdness,” which has just been released by RoswellBooks.com. Also appearing on the show with LeMay will be UFO researcher Noe Torres, editor and publisher of LeMay’s new book.
A lifelong Roswell resident and author of several books about New Mexico history, LeMay takes a fresh new look at the Roswell Incident from an “insider’s perspective.” Having been born and raised in the Alien Capital of the World, LeMay’s childhood was filled with tales of flying saucers and alien autopsies, and he rubbed shoulders with several key Roswell eyewitnesses, including Robert Shirkey, who said he saw UFO debris being loaded onto a B-29 bomber at the Roswell Army Air Field in 1947.
In “Roswell USA,” LeMay presents a careful reconstruction of the famous UFO crash, including details that many readers may not have previously heard. He also provides a unique glimpse into what it’s like to live in the one place on Earth most closely associated with flying saucers and extraterrestrials. His analysis of the odd things that happen in Roswell, especially during its annual UFO festival, is priceless.
LeMay’s keen insight and marvelous sense of humor also focus on some of Roswell’s other, lesser-known mysteries, such as the “alien ghost” that haunts the New Mexico Rehabilitation Center. Written with an eye to historical accuracy, and perhaps an occasional wink of the eye, LeMay’s book also chronicles some of Roswell’s “other” mysteries, such as the “second” Roswell UFO Crash (in 1949); Bottomless Lakes where cars sink into the depths and monsters emerge to the surface; the Headless Horsewoman of Lover’s Lane, a Victorian Era Spook with an axe to grind against young lovers; and others.
Roswell is by no means the only town to use strange events and bizarre creatures to draw tourism dollars. Nor was it the first. In the second part of LeMay’s book, he takes us on a tour of other towns all over the U.S. that celebrate weirdness – such as Churubusco, Indiana, where a giant turtle sighting in 1948 has served the town well in tourism for the last 60 plus years, and Flatwoods, West Virginia, where a one-time alleged sighting of a strange alien monster has since resulted in the “Flatwood Monster Days” festival. Also, there is Lake Champlain, New York, which has since become America’s very own Loch Ness. Point Pleasant, West Virginia, celebrates Mothman Days and has its own Mothman Museum. Kelley, Kentucky, is the site where aliens from outer space laid siege to a farm house in 1955. And, many UFO enthusiasts visit a lonely country cemetery in Aurora, Texas, where lie the remains of an extraterrestrial, or so they believe, that crashed there in 1897.
“Roswell USA” is published by RoswellBooks.com, and is available in paperback for $14.95 from the author’s Web site at RoswellUSA.com. It is also available on Amazon.com and other major online retailers, and in the Roswell area, may be purchased at Roswell Landing, 205 North Main Street (Phone: 575-622-3036). It features over 50 photographs and illustrations, original cartoons by Neil Riebe, and impressive cover art by Brian Norwood. The book is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
Author John LeMay is the author of several books about the history of New Mexico. His works include “Images of America: Roswell,” “Postcards of America: Roswell,” “Images of America: Chaves County,” and “Images of America: Towns of Lincoln County,” all published by Arcadia Publishing of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. LeMay is also an archivist and serves on the board of directors for the Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico, located in Roswell.
Noe Torres, editor and publisher of “Roswell USA,” has authored a number of books regarding historical UFO cases, including the critically-acclaimed “Ultimate Guide to the Roswell UFO Crash” published in 2010 by RoswellBooks.com. Torres is the section director for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in South Texas and has appeared on numbers television and radio programs. He is a regular speaker at the annual Roswell UFO Festival held each July in Roswell, New Mexico.
The Jeff Rense Program, which will celebrate its 18th anniversary in June 2011, is one of the world’s most listened-to Internet radio shows, specializing in topics dealing with “exotic and eclectic venues of research and inquiry.” Interviewing more than 50 unique guests each month, Rense’s program has been described by broadcast executives as “a completely new dimension in talk radio” and “the best information program ever.” Rense was also a pioneer in making talk radio interactive, and his radio interviews commonly feature simultaneous online illustrations and images.
The Rense.com internet site is one of the world’s most referenced 24-hour news services. It is the top talk radio site and records close to 10 million total hits per month. It has also achieved top-level Arbitron ratings in several top U.S. radio markets. In addition, the Rense.com Web site archives over 150,000 pages of stories, articles, reports and features. Rense.com is in the top .001% of the 20 million websites on the internet, according to rankings issued in 2007.
Wednesday we had a meeting for those of us working on the Wake Up Now! Conference. I can’t say we really got much done, but we had fun. :-D
Anyhow, Nancy Wallace has permits to go see the Los Lunas stone and she and I may go next week. As some of you may know, I have been interested in the stone for a long time, but I never knew how to find it since I am not familiar with the Los Lunas area. Nancy is familiar with the area, so hopefully we can find it.
Some say the stone is a very ancient form of Hebrew that nobody can really transcribe anymore, but from what they can transcribe may be the 10 commandments. However, what such an ancient stone written in Hebrew would be doing in the middle of the New Mexico desert is a mystery.
Of course, there are plenty that disagree about it being ancient Hebrew. We discussed that it looks rather like some descriptions of “alien writing.”
Whenever we end up going I will be sure to take lots of photos of the stones and the surrounding area.
MAX THE ANCIENT CRYSTAL SKULL is considered by many to be one of the rarest artifacts ever found. Estimated to be at least 10,000 years old, MAX was found in a tomb in Guatemala in the 1920’s and used by Mayan priests for healing and prayer. The skull was then given to Norbu Chen, a powerful healer of the Tibetan sect of Red Hat Lamas, who brought Max to the US. Max the crystal skull is known internationally. He has been presented in several documentaries and television shows worldwide, including the SciFi channel’s “Indiana Jones and the Ultimate Quest” and on the History Channel’s “Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls”. He has also been featured in the news, many newspaper articles, books, and videos worldwide.
Max, along with other ancient crystal skulls, remains a mystery with regard to its origin. Many who have been in the presence of these crystal skulls feel that they are from other dimensional realms and perhaps were used by ancient civilizations (including Atlantis and Lemuria) to sustain contact between Star Beings and the human race. Others who have touched the skulls have had a range of experiences including receiving instantaneous healing, information, visions of other worlds and the experience of unusual sounds and expanded intuitive abilities. To this day, MAX is used as a tool for awakening consciousness and accelerating healing and growth on all levels.
