Wake up the ghosts, the dogs are coming

Yes, thats right, its nearly Iditarod Race Time again. The parade through Anchorage is next Saturday, and the long trek to Nome starts a week today.

But why the comment about waking up the ghosts, and the aptness of the video, you ask? Well, quite simply, for the first time in 5 years, the race actually is going to go through the town its named after, Iditarod. Normally this would happen every 2 years (so should have been 2015, and 2017), but due to climate change, and the lack of snow in the areas at the start of the race, the last 2 southern route events, have been even further north events, with the restart in Fairbank, and a revised first half of the route, which then made using the southern section a no go!

Therefore the decision has been made, that this year, as well as next year (which would be normal route), that the decision would be to go south, via Iditarod. Now strictly, its defined as a ghost town, as no one lives there any more. In truth, beyond about 1920’s hardly anyone, bar the odd trapper lived there, once the gold rush was over. Supposedly someone lived there, trapping, until the turn of the century, but then he decided the place had got a ‘bit lively’ with the dog race arriving once every 2 years, and he left town!

Supposedly, and unsurprisingly, the town is supposed to be haunted by some who lived there, over 100 years ago now. How true that is, no idea? But its fun to believe it, I guess?

No, I will never visit Iditarod, the only traffic through the place nowadays that is known about, is this dog race, and I’m not taking part in that! And I’m way past an age where I’m volunteering to help out, given the crazy freezing temperatures in that area of the world at this time of year. Anchorage? Well, maybe, assuming my back, and my body lasts until 2024, and retirement, because thats my planned reward to myself for getting that far inĀ  life. I will need to take a break somewhere en route, both ways for sure, but if I’m not working…? Nome, I’d love to, on a day trip, or an overnight flight stay while there, just to say I’d been there, but I doubt it. Mind, if I do, I’ll go more in summer than in winter! Brr!

But yes, if there are ghosts in Iditarod, and they’ve been enjoying the peace for 5 years, they’re in for a shock in the next couple of weeks! The humans, and dogs, are returning again, after so long.

Many years ago, I did use this song, when discussing Alaska, and the race before, but that was about 4 years ago. And anyway, this is a newer, live edition, not the one I used back then

Spirit in the sky?

Oh fine, not hard to work out the video, but which version. Quite a song, twice been a ‘one hit wonder’ and another artist who recorded it, topped charts, but was last hit of his career! So is this song jinxed, who knows?

Firstly let me say, as Dorothy, and Alice have said in a meme, I’ve seen, and done some crazy things in my life. Yes, I believe in ghosts, and there have been a couple of times (even excluding the weirdness with things in my room, in the past) when I have firmly believed I have been in the presence of ghosts, though as far as I know, I’ve never actually seen one. Clearly the intrigue about the ghosts of Harlow, and one of her former husbands, Paul Bern intrigue me no end. True or not, no idea, though the comments relating to 1 sighting of Jean suggests the ghost was sassy enough to have been her! But hey, most people have an idea how she would behave, so cautious of saying it was her, though.

Indeed, my only contact with people from a past life, is my famous past life regression, and because of the nature of it, my memories of the whole event are slightly vague. Sadly not recorded, as I’m told ‘my voice’ was nothing like my own, so clearly it was Clara talking!

In my sheltered life, I’ve never been to a medium. I have no desire to talk to my parents ever again, and until Clara appeared, in truth, I had no one who had passed away that I wanted to talk to. Now, if I got the chance to talk to Jean, or Clara, you bet I would! Nor have I ever been to a seance, not in a serious sense, via a medium, or even that thing that so many teens seemed to do, with the Ouija Board!

But yes, when a friend in LA was discussing holding a seance later this year, I was interested. Even more so when May was suggested as a possible date. Sadly it looks like it will happen before I reach town, but yes, I would have gone if I’d been there. I know, Clara probably wouldnt show, and I’m even more certain Jean wouldnt have done, but you can never tell! In truth, I’d rather it be Clara, as I’d love to know more about her, given the exceedingly limited information available about her. I hope to solve some of that issue in September, but fine, if I found out more in May, and I could go and pay my respects, that would just be so special! Oh to know her married name! No, I have no great desire to look through all the Los Angeles marriage records from 1937 to about 1942, if I can help it! But…? Though I guess, if someone could get me entry into the records office, I could be tempted to spend a few hours looking!

So yes, if anyone knows of a genuine medium, or seance event, in LA, between May 18, and 26, let me know. No, I cant afford a private appointment before you ask, far too poor for that!

Right, the video. The song you know, the version you might not. This is the middle version that reached Number 1, and no, I’m not either of the women in this lol!

To be like a robot!

OK, if you thought you were going to get a boring birthday post, sorry, I’ll disappoint you. But given that most of the popular (even years on) threads on here seem to involve brainwashing, robotization, and the like, this might please some.

Recently, I’ve been a wicked woman, and started reading a few mm sex stories, even if that sort of sex holds even less interest for me, than anything involving women. Which lets face it, with my love of sex…rolls eyes! I’ve picked on a few that play to my personal perves, and just hoped (successfully) that they didnt get too robust with the sex, which thankfully, they havent. One author who has taken my eye of late, is The Guardsman. Stories at,

These I can love for so many reasons. Not only do the men get to wear rubber clothing, as their normal garb, they also get to wear armor, with a visor over their faces, for complete dehumanization at times. To add to that effect, they dont have names, only numbers, once transformed. So yes, no identity, armor bodies, just like, err, robots! And yes, they even get controlled by an AI on top of all that!

OK, fine, big snag for me, that you will have noticed, this delicious treatment is handed out to men only! Well yes, I guess thats likely to be the case, if thats your preference in life, guys? I must admit, the previous time I wrote to someone about their methods, and adapting it for women, he explained that idea held no interest for him, not that I was totally surprised to be honest, but anyway. It involved, err, extracting cum from men, by a rather delightful piece of technology, I must say. If you want to read his stuff, its at

So, when I wrote to the Guardsman, making the same suggestions about adapting it for women, I was expecting much the same reply. Wrong, I’ve got into quite a session of emails about the subject, though to be honest, most of it would leave the women in a very butch manner, if not more manly than that! So no, ideally I’d pass on the mastectomy, and the stuff, and head shaving wouldnt be my first choice either, but…robots, especially like Maria dont have hair, so just maybe…? Would I do it? Yes, probably, though I’d wince at the genital mutilation, and mastectomy, I suspect. The hair shaving, oh, at a push…Well, most people think of lesbians prototypically with cropped hair, dont they? Yes, because I’d look like, and be controlled like a robot, and be nothing more than a number!

Fine, despite talk otherwise, sadly, its not for real, because if it was, especially at present, I’d do it!

Right, video time. This video, I have to thank a fellow author for discovering, she being Tabico. It has some great outfits, looks like something out of Metropolis (though it isnt), or some crazed 30’s film! Oh, and a little bit of electricity, too. The music isnt my thing, but the video sure is!
