What Was In The Barn?

plate.jpgA New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement money wisely, so it would last, and decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal .

The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15yrs.; the owner and wife both had died, and there were no heirs.

The house was sold to pay taxes.

There had been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded shut. Nobody wanted to go to the extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn’t complimentary to the property anyway……so, nobody made an offer on the place.

The NY guy bought it at just over half of the property’s worth, moved in, and set about to tear in to the barn…….curiosity was killing him.

So, he and his wife bought a generator, and a couple of grinders…….and cut through the welds.

What was in the barn……………?

Go to http://www.intuh.net/barnfinds/afa70.htm and start wishing that you had bought the place.

These people can now afford to take cruises every year for the rest of their lives. Man, that would be nice!

Golf Course Crew Finds Skull On Fairway in Illinois.

skullGolf course workers uncovering the tees for the season discovered a human skull at a suburban Chicago club and found bones nearby in the fairway, authorities said.

The skull was spotted Monday near the 14th tee of the Prairie Course, one of two 18-hole courses at the Countryside Golf Club in Mundelein, according to Lake County Forest Preserve Police Chief John Galford.

“It was laying there, right in the middle of the fairway,” Galford said.

He said the identity and gender of the person had not been determined, but the skull had some distinguishing marks: a partial set of dentures, two of the teeth are gold, some of the teeth have a star pattern on them, and one of the front teeth has a golden “R” on it.

A forensic dentist planned to examine the skull and bones Tuesday, said Lake County Coroner Richard Keller. He said investigators would go through police records and missing-persons reports.

Rumor has it that Callaway golf was etched in the skull. Heh, kidding!

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows

Unless your living under a rock (or in a barn) you have heard the name Harry Potter somewhere during your life. What you may not know is that the upcoming book, “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows” is scheduled to be released to the screaming public on July 21st of 2007. This is the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series of novels by J. K. Rowling.

There has been a huge security measure in place to make sure this book didn’t get released on the internet before it is available to be bought in stores. We all know how that goes. The bigger the security measure, the more crafty the person(s) trying to get their name in lights for the day, become.

This time proved to be no different. There are various versions of the book available in newsgroups and on torrent sites (in .pdf files), but most are claiming those are fakes. There is one that I think is real, and it isn’t a .pdf file. Someone got their grubby little paws on the book despite all of the security. They then proceeded to take photos of every single page. That’s right, the entire book in several .jpg files. And personally, I think that this one is the real thing. If it’s not, then someone clearly has way too much time on their hands.
