Thirsty Thursday!

Woooohoooooo! Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! Some of you already know that there’s a few of us in my circle of writer friends that like to party on Facebook. Yes, we throw parties and we even like to have a “virtual” bar! We have drinks and laugh…and more drinks and MORE laughs and you can guarantee it’s going to be a good time!
There’s been times that when someone had ordered a drink we weren’t exactly sure what it was, much-less what was in it. So I thought there couldn’t be a better way to spend Thursdays on my blog, than by educating my writer pals in a course of mixology!
One of the drinks I order regularly from the “virtual” bartender is Sex on the Beach. It is a very tasty drink ; )

So, I’d like to start the very first Thirsty Thursday off with some Sex on the Beach, oh and just in case a few of you don’t like sand in places it shouldn’t be, I found some other places you can have Sex! Oh, the Sex drinks, you silly people, get those minds out of the gutter!

Half fill with cranberry juice and grapefruit juice, stir in highball glass.

Sex at my House
3/4 oz Amaretto Di Saronno
Creator/contributor's comments:
Every time I ask "How was the sex!" I get "Great!"

Sex in the Shower
Fill Shaker with Ice
Creator/contributor's comments:
This drink looks like the waters in the Caribbean and is smooth enough to be sipped all night long. Enjoy!
Sex in the Desert
1 oz Tequila (Herradura)
Shake and serve on the rocks.
Creator/contributor's comments:
Nice. To be enjoyed in Baja, California. Cheers!

Sex on Ice
1/2 oz Vodka

Sex on the Pool Table

1 part Triple sec

Mixing instructions:

Over ice, mix equal parts of each alcohol. Top with the grapefruit juice. Shake to blend.

Sex on the Grass
1 oz Vodka
Mixing instructions:
Shake all except orange juice with ice. Pour into a hiball glass filled with ice. Fill with orange juice.
Creator/contributor's comments:
Similar to Sex on the beach, but should be a nice grassy green color, hence the name. You can adjust the curacao to get the right color. Nice summertime drink!

Sex on the Brain
Mixing instructions:
Fill glass with ice, insert a straw and then add the first three ingredients (Vodka, Midori, Schnapps) then layer the juices using a barspoon to get a separation of alcohol and mixers. Leave a little room at top of glass to float the Sloe gin on top. Garnish with a cherry and orange wedge. The drink should look like a Stop Light. Green at the bottom, yellow in the middle and red on top.
Creator/contributor's comments:
Can also be made into a blended drink by adding all ingredients into a blender and served in a margarita glass. Garnish with only a orange wedge.

First drink is on the house!

Place your order in the comment section below and let’s see if we turn this into a party!

Mystic Monday

Hi All,

Well yesterday was interesting. The Stevens Point Paranormal Club (SPPC) presented the evidence we collected over the last two weekends to the owners and the staff of Club Forest.
Freddy and the team who work all the tech stuff were amazing. Some of the videos and photos can be seen on FB but I will post them to my website. There is also two links on my website to SPPC where you can see not only stuff from Club Forest, but other places the team has been.
Saturday I thought was just going to be a day of presenting, but I was wrong. Jennifer has some new equipment to try out and I wanted to get back into the basement to see if I could kick out the ghost that had all the negative energy. Jennifer had this camera or I'm not sure what it was but it read the heat areas in the room. When you looked at the screen it was all red, yellow, greens and spots of blue. She also brought her divining rods with her. Well in no time I had the ghost answering yes and no questions by turning the rod in my left had all the way around or crossing the two rods to form an X. Once we made contact with our two "good" ghosts, we asked them to leave the building so I could sage the room and call on the angels to take the "nasty" ghost out and away so there could be peace in the building. So how did I do it? Here is what I did. I called on my guides to help me with protection. I cast a circle around me and Jennifer, who taped everything, and then I burned some sage to clear the area while I called Arch Angels to take away the entity and heal the area. When I was done I opened the circle and left the burnt sage in the room. Then when I was done we called the two back into the building and started to use the rods and the spirit box to communicate.
Freddy pointed the thermal camera at me while I started to channel Reiki energy to our two ghosts so that they could have some energy to keep up the communications. While I started to channel, my hands looked red in the camera then Freddy said my right hand started to turn blue (meaning the temp was dropping and getting cold). As he was telling me he was seeing blue, my hand and arm started to tingle and feel cool. I wish we could have gotten all of it on video. It was an amazing experience. When we were done talking they called my name over the spirit box. That was very cool.
So I hope you can see the pictures and find the website to see and hear some of our recordings from the nights the team members were there.

Jennifer Nagorski snapped this picture as she saw a blue light fly across the room she was in as we were investigating a haunted supper club in Plover.

Valerie Kedrowski was asking the ghost to turn on the flashlight on the table when this was taken.

There is a small spot of light on the back of the booth over by my jacket.

Bar stools that were reported to fall off the table.

stairs to the basement.

The rooms that one of the ghost didn't want me in. It made me feel sick.

outside in the parking lot.

A mist that formed and then in the next picture is gone.

This was the next photo after the mist picture.

I had the feeling that someone was standing by this tree watching us going around the property.

The door to the area that was said to have to most activity. We had the most activity in the basement.

More mist that just formed. Again we tried to recreate it but it didn't work.

Photo after the mist.

This area of the bar was said to have activity.

This was the room we had the most activity in. Voice recordings and the flash lights turning on and off to answer yes and no questions

Ok with that said: Where were we? I know we were talking Spirit Guides. How many of you have tried a meditation to meet your guides?

Well get comfortable and turn your phone off. Light a candle and play some peaceful music in the background. Nothing loud or with singing.

Set your intent. What is it you want to learn with your meditation? Spirit guides, I want to be able to meet you and know what it is you do for me.

Then close your eyes and create where it is you will meet your guides. My first meeting was in a field and a Native American man leading a horse came to me and we started to walk the tree line and talk. He and I always meet in the field or there is a horse to take me to him. Then I have a great oak tree that I meet my protector guides at.

So experiment with it. Most important do not judge, but do remember to journal about it so you have it as you move forward with your work with them.

Next week we will talk about how to get information from your guides. Do you hear it? Do you see it? Do you just know it? We will explore all that next week.

Don't forget March 3rd, I'm teaching Reiki in Shell Lake at Vitality Village. March 31, I am in Wisconsin Rapids at an Expo at the Mead Hotel. March 24th, I'm back out with the team in Stevens Point. So look for more ghost stories!
