Web Notes: odds, unusual and otherwise - 
  • Guinness Record holder - Grand Midway Hotel, a haunted hotel with a Ginormous Ouija board. Opting to buck the trend of banning items on the premises of haunted locales that open the door wider for unexplained activity, the current hotel owner is fearless. Doesn't hurt that he is the son of funeral directors. Now vying for Largest Tarot Card title. TribDem 
  • Considered a residence rather than a hotel, the Coffee Lounge is open on a limited basis. History and Hours: Grand Midway Hotel

Continuing from Part One
- Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife is receiving positive reviews: Good Reads

No Accidents. My Birthday.
Leslie Kean did a fantastic job with the UFO subject matter for her previous book.

With her current focus on Life after Death, Leslie is exploring another hot button topic often deemed too flimsy and lacking of validating scientific evidence for serious consideration. She dives in. Thank you, Leslie!

Leslie says in the book press material: "Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.”- Surviving Death Kean

Loaded with references, first hand experience and substantiating chapters from other dedicated researchers of this topic, Leslie addresses the whole gamut of material including; Reincarnation, Near Death Experiences and various methods of Mediumship.

She also explores some more exotic content rarely included in NDE and After Death material: Spiritualism. Noted on her website and worth more time to peruse for NDE Experiencers: Division of Perceptual Studies/Virginia Edu

Most fascinating to me, Leslie's experience with her deceased brother (Four significant others died during the time she was working on this book, including her father as the book was being completed.) and with Physical Medium Stewart Alexander.

Too complicated to fully discuss given our limited time-frame for the interview was the story: Chapter 16/Finding George. Very complex. (The details are impressive.) And her personal experiences when sitting with Physical Medium Stewart Alexander are compelling.

From Leslie's Archives here's the 2014 video presentation for the incredible physical medium Stewart Alexander - chapters 25 and 26. Fantastic view of Spirit Communication.

And what is the benefit of talking about all of this life after death stuff? It helps.

"Research has revealed a consistent pattern of positive aftereffects in those who report a near-death experience [NDE]. Beneficial outcomes are also possible for those who have not had a NDE, but instead learn about them, although much of this research has been conducted on therapeutic populations."
