Drought Reveals The Dolmen of Guadalperal in Spain

The Dolmen of Gauadalperal, a megalithic monument consisting of 140 boulders, have reemerged after 66 years of being submerged in the Valdecañas Reservoir, near Cáceres, Spain. The intense drought in Spain has evaporated the water where the monument is located and uncovered "The Spanish Stonehenge".

The boulders are badly damaged and eroded. Some conservationists would like to move the monument to a dry area, while others think the dolmen should remain where it is.

One of the reasons is JFK.  Some believe he was going to reveal the truth about Roswell and extraterrestrials the motivation behind his assassination. Just pointing out there are conspiracy theories galore.  LBJ involvement in MLK's death only adds another to the list.

(didn't noticed my emoji?)

Repeating that kind of crap encourages sick minds and doesn't really add anything positive to society.

If planning to go there, be prepared to be squashed like a bug. Imagine how much heat all that atmosphere and water vapor traps.

It's about the size of Neptune.

Not yet on the internet, NGC's "Nazca Lines - Unlocking the Secrets" Archeaologist checked to see if the Nasca lines and geoglyphs were made to be seen under moonlight.  They  stand out in the darkness.

World's oldest parents are in intensive care just one week after giving birth to twins

6b8b8de0-d70f-11e9-abcd-5d6add91015b

The world’s oldest parents are in intensive care just one week after the new mother gave birth to twin girls after 57 years in a childless marriage.

Indian couple Erramatti Mangayamma, 74, and her husband Raja Rao, 78, successfully delivered two healthy babies on September 5th.

The pair tried to conceive throughout their marriage until they successfully underwent IVF treatment from Ahalya Hospital last year.

“Due to the grace of God and doctors, I am the proud father of two baby girls,” Mr Rao announced, hours after his wife, 74, was hailed as the world’s oldest new mother following IVF treatment.

“We are the happiest couple on earth today,” he said.

But just the day after Mr Rao collapsed from a heart attack and was taken into intensive care in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.

Ms Mangayamma has also remained in intensive care since the birth.

The twins are said to be doing well but have not yet been named and are staying with the couple’s relatives.

Ms Mangayamma fell pregnant in January after getting the all-clear to undergo IVF treatment.

Since she had already been through the menopause doctors used donor eggs and fertilised them with her husband’s ****.

Doctors were unsure whether she would carry to term but defying the odds, she delivered two healthy babies through a cesarean section, each weighing about 4Ibs.

Doctors have declined to provide details on their current condition but Ms Mangayamma’s niece, Lakshmi Bhia, told the Times that both are stable

It is unclear why Ms Mangayammais in intensive care but health experts say that there are a lot of risks for elderly women giving birth.

Those kids are definitely going to have autism and a lot of major medical defects.

Just watched "Hurricane Man - Panama City / Hurricane Micheal"  Lucky I found the photo below, this is the man's and wife livelihood, a fishing boat. The photo is before and believe it or not the after.  Amidst the destruction, the ship anchored in its little cove was completely UNTOUCHED by Hurricane Micheal - not even a scratch.  Can't find the image of that miracle.
