HISTORY OF BIG SPRING, TEXAS:
Big Spring is a city in and the county seat of Howard County, Texas, United States, at the crossroads of U.S. Highway 87 and Interstate 20. With a population of 27,282 at the 2010 census, it is the largest city between Midland to the west, Abilene to the east, Lubbock to the north, and San Angelo to the south. Big Spring was established as the county seat of Howard County in 1882; it is the largest community in the county.
The city got its name from the single, large spring that issued into a small gorge between the base of Scenic Mountain and a neighboring hill in the southwestern part of the city limits. Although the name is sometimes still mistakenly pluralized, it is officially singular. “To the native or established residents who may wince at the plural in Big Springs, it should be explained that until about 1916, when for some unexplained reason the name dropped the final “s,” the official name of the town was indeed Big Springs.” There is also a small community named Big Springs, Texas, located in Rusk County in East Texas.
THE HISTORY OF PRAGUE:
Prague, Czech: is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. It is the fourteenth-largest city in the European Union. It is also the historical capital of Bohemia. Situated in the north-west of the country on the Vltava River, the city is home to about 1.3 million people, while its larger urban zone is estimated to have a population of nearly 2 million. The city has a temperate oceanic climate, with warm summers and chilly winters.
Prague has been a political, cultural, and economic center of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its 1,100-year existence. Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague was not only the capital of the Czech state, but also the seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and thus also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. It was an important city to the Habsburg Monarchy and its Austro-Hungarian Empire and after World War I became the capital of Czechoslovakia. The city played major roles in the Protestant Reformation, the Thirty Years’ War, and in 20th-century history, during both World Wars and the post-war Communist era.
Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter, the Lennon Wall and Pet#345;ín hill. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Prague is the capital of Czech Republic, which used to be joined with Slovakia but they separated.
The city boasts more than ten major museums, along with numerous theaters, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. A modern public transportation system connects the city. Also, it is home to a wide range of public and private schools, including Charles University. Prague is classified as a Beta+ global city according to GaWC studies, comparable to Berlin, Rome and Houston. Its rich history makes it a popular tourist destination, and the city receives more than 4.4 million international visitors annually, as of 2011. In 2011, Prague was the sixth-most-visited city in Europe.[
I want to thank Gianna de la Rosa, Gina de la Rosa and Aaliyah Jones for staying at my home and taking care of my dogs (Hi-Pee and Princess Hannah) by feeding them, walking them and staying at my home to watch over them. Plus, many thanks Gina for driving me to the airport and picking me up, and of course watching my car – The Rusty Anomaly.
It was fantastic to fly into Midland – Odessa and get picked up by my son Jason Randall Porter and prepare for his big wedding day. It was fabulous to see Brooklyn Nicole Porter Age 1 1/2 (my grand-daughter); Kyleigh Tatum Porter Age 3 (my grand-daughter); Whitney Gonzales – My New Daughter-in-Law; Aiden Gonzales – my son’s stepson.
The wedding was fantastic and you can see the videos and pictures at the link above. My son Jason took me to the very haunted Hotel Settles in Big Spring, Texas.
HOTEL SETTLES AND FORSAN CHUPACABRA
I talked to one patron, that does not want to be identified, but she told me that she was once walking up the steps and saw a skull face come down the stairwell and the skull face went right up to her face, she totally freaked out, she said. Hotel Settles once had a famous guest, that guest was Elvis Presley. Other notables stayed at this hotel. Hotel Settles is located at: Settles Grill and Pharmacy Bar, 212 East 3rd Street, Big Spring, Texas 79720. If you ever decide to go to Big Spring, some great places to eat at are: El Nopal for their breakfast burritos. Taco Villa for their tacos of course! While in Big Spring, I did a little bit of a Chupacabra hunt with my son at a location called Forsan. At a barn party that we attended, Darrell Sanchez says he saw a hairless dog creature with large teeth running through the brush. Could Darrell have actually seen a coyote with mange? While exploring Forsan and checking the landscape with binoculars, I did see a coyote and I do believe that Texans are probably just seeing coyotes with mange. Note: The Chupacabras in Texas are different from the original Chubacabras in Puerto Rico. The Chubacabras did not look like coyotes with mange, but were known to have reptilian skin, large oval red eyes, tiny wings, claws and were known to drain the blood out of sheep, chickens, cows with 3 holes in the chest cavity area. This is a far cry from what Texans are seeing
SUPERNATURAL PRAGUE, CZECHOSLOVAKIA:
Leaving Texas, I headed over to Prague. Prague is known for its mysteries and paranormal happenings. The Golem of Prague was created by Judah Loew. The Golem was to protect the Jewish people. Even though this story is far-fetched, I still feel that there is some truth to this myth.
KICKED BY THE HEADLESS KNIGHT’S TEMPLAR HORSE!
While in Prague, I went to the mystical labyrinth of this ancient city. There is a story that there was once a noble Templar Knight who rode a fanciful white horse and this is one of the most popular ghosts of Prague. The Headless Knight’s Templar reminds me so much of Sleepy Hollow’s Headless Horseman. If you have the chance of encountering this famous ghost, you will see the bright red cross on the Knight’s torso and in his hand, he is carrying his head! Many citizens have claimed that they have seen this ghost trotting down the cobblestone streets. Many citizens who have seen this ghost say that he is merely serving his ghostly servitude. Legend has it that to rid this ghost from Prague’s cobblestone streets, you must be brave and strong and seize his noble horse and then grab the knight’s sword and pierce it through the heart of the ghost. The Headless Templar can be found wandering on picturesque and positively creepy Liliova Street between midnight and 1 a.m. It is a mystery on why the Headless Knight’s Templar lost his head. While trying to conduct an EVP session, I felt something kick me in the back of the leg. I feel like I have a sprained ankle and I have been limping. I have a huge bruise on my foot. Could I have provoked the Headless Knight’s Templar horse to stomp on the back of my leg? See photo of my foot. I have learned from experience that ghosts overseas don’t mess around.
MY BRUISED FOOT
THE MURDERED NUN
Around the area of St. Agnes Convent in Josefov there lurks a ghost that is known as The Murdered Nun. She appears only at night. She is known to be a moody and is seen sometimes covered in blood and crying hysterically. She is known also to smile and stare at loving couples on a bench. She was a child of a wealthy nobleman. She fell hopelessly in love with a desolate knight. Her noble father of course refused to give his consent for marriage and as her payment for her unforgivable sin she was to be sent to live in St. Agnes convent, where she still resides today but only in esoteric form. The night before her transfer to the convent she decided to follow her heart and met with her beloved. Her father went psychotic and stabbed her repeatedly for shaming the family name. The Murdered Nun has been haunting the area of St. Agnes ever since. Legend has it that this ghost once appeared to a girl who wished to poison herself because of a tragic love affair. The Murdered Nun grabbed the poison from the depressed girl’s hand and placed a bag of coins in it instead, enabling her to live a happy and prosperous life with her true love.
The Murdered Nun and the Headless Knight’s Templar are the only ghosts I investigated due to time limitations, but Prague has many ghosts and they are so colorful! Like the Drowned Maid that is seen dripping wet with drooping hair. She has chattering teeth and crying eyes and she can be found haunting the House of the Golden Well. Yes! She was murdered! Many of the ghosts in Prague have colorful names and it appears that everyone knows the legends of these ghosts. There are: The Iron Man; The Ghost of Miller’s Daughter; The Obese Merchant; The Begging Skeleton; The Mad Barber; The Fiery Turkey – yes, it’s a ghostly turkey that looks like it’s on fire; the Ghost of the French Major; the Headless Lady; The One Armed Thief; the Fish Eater of Stromovka Park and let’s not forget Karbourek the Water Sprite! To fully enjoy the benefits of ghost hunting in Prague, you will need to spend 6 months there just to investigate everything!

UFO OVER STRAHOV MONASTERY:
A beautiful young lady I had the pleasure to interview in Prague is Agata Benedikta. Agata tells me that she saw a large yellow globe hover over the ancient Strahov Monastery. While observing this yellow globe it emitted a beam that engulfed the entire monastery. Then it zipped straight up into the cloudy night sky, punching a hole into the clouds. The beam of light hit the monastery for a period of 10 minutes, before it flew off. Could it be, that this UFO was scanning all of the religious paraphernalia and books in this monastery? Could this UFO actually be collecting our history for preservation, a way to study mankind throughout the ages of the Czech Republic?
JASON & WHITNEY
DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
One of the airports I was laid over at was the Denver International Airport. It is said that there is a New World Order / Illuminati underground base underneath this airport. Are there really underground tunnels to underground bases?
Investigative reporter Shepard Ambellas, founder of Intellihub.com, confirmed these subterranean structures through a whistleblower working construction on the grounds. Evidence indicates the presence of a “massive deep underground military facility.” According to his source:
• There is a militarized intermediary entrance located in the “United Airlines” section of the underground. The actual door number was revealed by my source with great hesitation. The actual door code is “BE64B” unknown until now to the general public.
• A swift door will also allow access to the intermediary entrance of the facility if you have the proper “speed-pass” clearance on a Department of Defense (DOD) level. This door was also a secret to the general public until now. The actual door number is “T-47 M” located on the level 4 exterior. Update: Airport Staff, “I just went in to T47-M… nothing goes down, no steps, no elevator”.
• A nearly 3 mile long tunnel heads out from the intermediary entrance “BE64B”, to a full-blown Department of Defense (DOD) sanctioned militarized entrance nestled in a set of 5 buildings 120#8242; beneath the surface located Northeast of the Jeppesen Terminal.
While I was at this airport, I didn’t detect anything suspicious, but that might be due to the fact I was on the 2nd floor. I kept a careful eye out the window to see if I could detect any underground entrances, but I did not see anything unusual. I wish I could investigate this airport thoroughly. Maybe one day.
SPECIAL NOTE: Jason Randall Porter and Whitney Gonzales (now Porter) had their pre-wedding dinner at KC Steaks & Seafood – 2104 I H 20 West, Big Spring, TX. I had the green beans, Rib Eye Steak, mashed potatoes.
SPECIAL THANKS! To Fouad Al Saedi with AirServ. Fouad saw me limping at the Denver International Airport and stopped his roaming cart and took me to my gate. I sure appreciate that!
