This week we should be celebrating the 9th birthday of my son.
Instead we are celebrating the 9th anniversary since his murder.

November 14, 2013 10PM @ Southern Maine Community College Art Studio Bug-Light Parking Lot: 3 strangers armed with golf clubs, attacked me from behind while I was loading bags into the backseat of my car. They were a blond woman 60s-ish whom the others called "Claire", a natural red-haired woman also 60sish who called herself "Kendra", and a bald man, football player-body-type-build in his 30sish. I was 8 months pregnant. They murdered my baby, ruptured 3 discs in my spine, shattered 3 vertebra, broke my pelvis, hips, and knees. I was paralyzed for 5 months and was 18 months relearning to walk. The nerve damage has left me with limited use of my hands, legs, bladder, and intestines.
On top of that, they have also taken to harassing the baby's father, a disfigured, homeless, WW2 veteran, whom they call "Etoile". They spread hateful rumours about him claiming he is a cryptid, a demon, or most often what they term "an amphibious alien". He lives in pine branch lean-toos he builds in Old Orchard Beach and Ocean Park, and they have been hunting the locations of them, tearing them down, and smashing up his belongings.
April 10, 2015 1PM at 146 Portland Ave Old Orchard Beach Maine a gang of estimated 74 people, some of them wearing ku klux klan robes, invaded my farm, used a Blow Brothers sewage truck to pump 500+gallons of sewage into my motorhome flooding it to over the kitchen counters deep, ripped out all the cabinets and built in furniture, while 14 men armed with guns, held my family down on the ice and snow, with guns to our heads, and used cinder block bricks and a metal pole with metal wire loops to beat and behead 10 of my 12 foster children (the youngest age 4, the oldest age 16). May 15, 2015 they returned and nailed their heads to my front door. The 3 people of the November 14, 2013 attack were among the group.
September 12, 2015, 9AM a dozen+ of these same people arrived again in my driveway at 146, this time chanting: "Too gay for the family friendly town of Old Orchard Beach. Kill of be killed. Remember Saco Shaw's, Transgender Murder Store, kill the transvestites before they kill us all", one white haired man in a dark green pick up truck was leading the herd, while waving a rifle over his head and shooting at me and my pink motorhome, he shot several holes through my neighbour's shed. The crowd was accusing me of being a male-to-female "transgender terrorist" (they thought I was Muslim because I wear Catholic veiling).
June 26, 2016, the same 2 women of the first 2 attacks, arrived at my Scarborough WalMart workplace, and in a near repeat of the first attack, again while I was leaned over the back seat of my car putting bags in, this time they attacked with a chopping cart, re-injuring my spine, hip, and pelvis that was not yet fully healed from the first attack. The blond "Claire" woman was screaming "That's EelKat, she tried to kill my husband!" while the redhead screamed "I'm Kendra Silvermander it's my turn the shine!" They sped away in a early2000s-vintage gold Volvo SUV station wagon. This attack left me permanently crippled, and bedridden from 2016 until May 2022.
November 21, 2021: They shot "Etiole" in Biddeford, while he was staying at the tent-shanty-village with about 50 other homeless people along the Saco River in Biddeford. They made the claim he was a "suicide demon" citing that he was driving locals to suicide by putting "evil eye curses" on them.
These people murdered my baby, attempted to murder the baby's father, drove a backhoe over our house, and left me crippled for the rest of my life in their attempt to murder me.
I do not know who these people are. I never saw them before these attacks, and I've not seen them outside of these attacks. The police and FBI believe I was not the intended target, and that they were likely after my mother because of posts she makes on FaceBook and got us mixed up. The Old Orchard Beach and Biddeford Police and the FBI are seeking information leading to their identity and arrest.
These people who show up to vandalize, while they scream about aliens and demons and Etiole, prove how retarded they are by their own words.
Because only a retarded person believes in aliens.
Because only a retarded person believes in ufos.
Because only a retarded person believes in demons.
Because only a retarded person believes in ghosts.
Because only a retarded person believes in haunted cars.
Because only a retarded person believes in demon possessed cars.
Because only a retarded person believes in alien abduction.
The inbred insect locals of Old Orchard Beach and Biddeford, Maine are too damned retarded to know how much of a fool they make themselves look when they run around calling my cars demon possessed, calling my husband an alien, and calling me an alien abductee.
More Info @ eelkat.com
Long detailed info on the over 200 attacks they have done between June 2001 and May 2022, including photos of them driving a backhoe over our house on August 8, 2013 and the details of the malicious "amphibious alien" rumour they have been spreading about a local homeless disabled veteran @
July 4th 2013: my car in front of my house.
August 8, 2013: me getting home from work to find a backhoe sitting on top of my house.
The FBI already found the people with the backhoe incident, and learned that the backhoe driver was paid $600 and given a fake demolition paper, the paper stating one of my relatives (the one who paid him the $600) owned my land. The backhoe driver was unaware that the man he was dealing with was not the owner. I have lived at 146 Portland Ave since 1975 and have owned the land since 1983, it has never been owned by anyone else, even though we have now learned that both my mother and my father and 3 of my uncles had been actively going around Old Orchard Beach claiming they owned my land.
This happened 3 months before my son was murdered and the police and FBI believe my son was murdered BECAUSE of this picture being posted on FaceBook, and my mother making inciting/inflammatory posts about it on HER FaceBook, where she falsely accused me of being a witch. The FBI and OOB police believe the golf club wielding woman of November 14, 2013, is somehow connected to the backhoe driving over my house incident.
Since the murder, 3 other different backhoes have invading my land to dig up my yard, looking for the grave of my son. There is a family cemetery on my land, the stones dating mostly in the 1500s and 1600s, with a few from the past hundred years, the most recent being my son in 2013. 146 Portland Ave has belonged to my family since 1530, and I inherited it in 1983 from my grandmother Helen Ricker Allen. The most recent backhoe attack happened September 19, 2020, when they illegally cut down several trees in my yard, and started construction of a road through my yard between my pink 1975 Dodge Sportsman motorhome and BackElder Brooke, again the backhoe digging up and destroying large portions of my farm, in their search for my murdered son's grave. They dug up 16 of the graves in this attack.
We have had to remove the grave markers from the family grave in order to stop these vandals and their illegally trespassing construction equipment from destroying the graves.
The FBI believes these construction crews are being hired by the golf club wielding women, and believe she is trying to destroy the grave of my son, due to a fear of his golf club smashed skull being used as court evidence against her.
The most recent attacks by these people occurred November 21, 2021 and March 27, 2022 when they attacked my painted Volvo while it was parked at my dad's apartment in Biddeford, both times the vandals also cut all the wires to electricity, internet, and cable off the apartment building, effecting all 9 families living there.
The Old Orchard Beach and Biddeford Police Departments as well as the Portland FBI are seeking any information regarding any and all of these attacks on my family, my home, my land, or my cars.
If you have any information, please call FBI Portland Office @ 207-774-9322
ask for Agent Andy Drewer.
And no... to those who asked... the FBI is not looking for info on the 4-door white truck driver... the FBI has ALREADY ARRESTED the driver and owner of the 4-door white truck - 2 different people. The 4-door white truck was owned by Old Orchard Beach Town Hall clerk and Old Orchard Beach Police Department Dispather Kathy Smith, Relief Society President of the Saco Ward of the Agusta Stake Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Her son was the driver. They were both arrested and sentenced in 2017, and were also both excommunicated from the Mormon church as a result of their MANY hate crimes, which included but were not limited to the 4 door white truck attacks of 2013 to 2016.
Yes. A LOT of arrests have already been made. Do keep in mind the April 10, 2015 attack involved 74 people who were wearing Ku Klux Klan style white robes and pillow cases over their heads (which is how you can tell they were not real, actual Ku Klux Klan members as the REAL Ku Klux Klan wear miters on their heads, NOT pillow cases). There are in total MORE THEN 74 people actively being hunted down by twenty-one different Maine police departments, the Maine state police, the Florida State police, the Connecticut State police, and the FBI.
Since the backhoe attack of August 8, 2013, there have been a whooping 24 arrests JUST IN TWO CHURCHES:
The Saco Ward of the Augusta Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
The Sanford Ward of the Exeter Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints.
There have been additional arrests at the following three churches which all have the same owner:
Grace Point in Biddeford
New Life (aka That Church in front of WalMart) in Biddeford
Curtis Lake Church in Sanford
Due to the alarmingly high rate of arrests and prison sentences made at these 5 churches, the police and FBI have focused the bulk of their investigation on all members of these five congregations, with the bulk of the investigation being on the two Mormon churches and all friends, family, and relatives of the members of those five churches, as it is believed that ALL people involved in the murder and 20+ years of harassment of my family, are all members of these 5 churches and or friends, family, and relatives of these five churches.
To date, 64 of the 74 suspected white hood wearers of April 10, 2015, have commit suidice, four of which when killing themselves, also killed 5 or more members of their families with them at the same time. One of them was Old Orchard Beach Police officer Bruce Savoy, who killed his entire family and then himself.
The police and FBI believe there is a suicide pact between the 74 attackers who arrived April 10, 2015 on my farm at 146 Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine... as 64 of them have now commit suicide, between 2015 and 2023.
Additionally, Agent Andy Drewer was NOT the original FBI agent heading the case. Laura was. FBI agent Laura was murdered February 6, 2021, during her attempt to arrest a murder suspect who was in Florida at the time he murdered her. So in addition to murdering my son, these people have now also murdered an FBI agent.
People around local, seem to forget that what happened April 10, 2015, was not some local hick beating up one person... this was a large PREMEDITATIED ORGANIZED EVENT which drew in a CROWD of WELL OVER ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE to activly participate in beating to deth and beheading ten children, the oldest being aged 16 and the youngest being aged just 4 years old.
What the people of Old Orchard Beach and Biddeford, Maine did was monstrous on levels of extreemes.
And then when the FBI agents tried to arrest these people, they ganged up again on February 6, 2021 and murdered, not one, but THREE FBI agents.
This is an organized terrorist group that is activly killing people here in Maine.... and this Claire woman that murdered my baby, the one the FBI believes is the ring leader who has been organizing these events.... and when I say events... I was NOT the first family attacked.
According to the FBI, the April 10, 2015 attack was the ELEVENTH such attack to happen on Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine since June 2001.
And since the April 10, 2015 attack on my family, this VERY LARGE hate group has repeated this even seven more times, to seven more families all on just one street, all on Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine... in total, this extremist fanatical Christian hate group has murdered more then 120 CHILDREN, just on our one street alone.
And in every case, the grand of white hood wearers was chanting the same mantra: "Too gay for the family friendly town of Old Orchard Beach, kill or be killed, remember Saco Shaws".
This terrorist group is murdering anyone on Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine, whom they believe of being gay or transgender, whether or not they are gay or transgender.
These people are beyond evil. And this Claire woman is their leader, and she's the one the FBI wants.

ask for Agent Andy Drewer.
I have a weird text message… from the woman, a relative who looks enough like me to pass for my twin…from the women, who keeps pretending to be me, the one who lat Aprile pretended to be me and tried to sell my land, the one who in 2007 pretended to be me and hired a guy with a backhoe to dig holes in my land under the guise of putting in a septic system that I never ordered… the woman who in 2013 hired the same back hoe to drive over my house…
the woman the FBI suspects of being the one who hired the golf club woman also in 2013 to cripple me nd murder my baby… the same woman who was in my yard April 10, 2015 again pretending to be me when she locked her cats in my motorhome, the same woman who took out 27 credit cards in my name and ran them each up to $20k max, me, who’s never had a credit card in my life because I can’t count or do math so also can’t do money or numbers, …. The same woman who creates several online accounts pretending to be me on those… that woman… just sent me a text message, wants me to go with her to Bug Light lighthouse tomorrow…
Uhm… Bug Light lighthouse art studio is where I was November 14, 2013, when the Claire and Kendra women broke my spine with a gold club… so, why does this woman who has a 50 year history of impersonating me… the woman who convinced half of Old Orchard Beach and Biddeford that she owned my land, and has half the locals convinced that SHE and not ME, is me… she, suddenly wants me to met with her at the exact location where the blond Claire and red haired Kendra women - whom the FBI are still trying to find out the identity of - crippled me 9 years ago… and she won’t tell me why.
Well, at the moment I am recovering from, a broken pelvis, so, I can’t get out of bed, I haven’t been able to get out of bed since December, it’s not February. So, even if I would meet up with her, which I wouldn’t, right now, I can’t anyways.
She’s an Atwater… yes, the sister of Bruce Atwater… you remember him, he’s the one who was a member of Heaven’s Gate, and is so obsessed with aliens, that he and her, she helped him by pretending to be me, yet again… went around with the whole “amphibious aliens” rumors, making the claim I was abducted by aliens, calling my husband Ben Wildes, an aliens, dubbing him Etiole… he is by the way, the guy you see walking my dog with me in Biddeford… so, yeah you locals have met and talked to “Etiole” quite frequently, he attends the Saco Ward Church or Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and spent 48 years as the High Preist Quarum Leader of the Sandford Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of atter Day saists, he left the Mormon church in May 2015, after our children were murdered… thhey were kidnapped April 10, 2015, the same day the impersonator bitch locked her ten cats in my motorhome and tried to pretend they were mine, called the police, the police, Will Watson specifically, took her cats, and did not arrest me, because, they weren’t my cats… then she spent the past 9 years running around saying they were my cats and because it happened the same day, she also tries to convince people that mychildren never existed and that her cats are my children… what the fuck? She’s a raving lunatic.
She’s the one who who runs around screaming “Mark and Dan this and Mark and Dan that” and I don’t know who the fuck her Mark or her Dan are, however, the psychotic gun totoing white haired man with a green pickup truck, regularly arrives in my driveway to yell at me a, claiming he’s Mark, while saying I’m deframing him, and I don’t know who the hell he is… but apparently, he’s the Mark she keeps talking about, and she’s fighting with him while claiming to be me, so now, he’s mad at me because of something she said, but I don’t even know who the hell he is or what he’s talking about.
This is the same woman who ran around cutting the internet and electric wires off my Biddeford apartment building in 2021, while screaming about Tod Murphy, and I still don’t know who Todd Muruphrey is yet… except she and her friends claim he was hit by an Amtrak train Nov 21, 2021 at 10PM, and you can check the police records, no one was hit by a train that day… However, as you all saw on my dog walking livestream on Nov 19, 2021 at 6:27pm, 4 women on bikes chased a homeless man on the the freight train tracks a quarter mile away from the Amtrak train tracks… I have it on video and I’m the one who called the police. Apparently, that’s the train accident she was talking about, be she had all the dates and times and names wrong, AND, for a full 8 months after that, I had to deal with her Atwater hoodlums and their friend vandalizing my car… they did more then $10k in damages, which yes, that why I don’t have my car again, in case you hadn’t noticed a 40 year old antique car is rather difficult to find parts for.
This woman… the one who does all of these things… oh yeah, by the way, you remember the woman who cut my 1964 Dodge 330 in half on May 9, 2010… yeah… same damn woman… and the same woman who took a fucking sledge hammer to my 1974 AMC Gremlin… that woman, the same one woman who has done ALL of these things… just sent me a text, wanting me to meet her at Bug Light lighthouse, where her Claire and Kendra buddies crippled me and murdered my baby 9 years ago.
Why can’t this bitch leave me and my family alone!
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HER!!!
Bug Light? Really? The location where my baby was murdered and I was left crippled for the rest of my life?
Really. She wants me to meet her at Bug Light Lighthouse.
I don't know.
She won't tell me. It's all a big secret.
Everything's always a big secret with the Atwaters. Because everything has to be a secret with criminals. If their crimes get found out, they end up in jail. That's how criminal thugs operate. In secret. So she she can't do anything without it being some big grand secret.
Why do you want me to meet you at BugLight, the lcation where my baby was murdered?
It's a secret, I can't tell you, you just have to come and find out.
For one thing my car is not here, because oh, fucking Atwater scum bags vandalized it.
For another thing, I have a broken pelvis, I have been able to get out of bed since a week before Christmas 2022.
This is the 3rd time my pelvis has rebroken, since it was originally broken by the golf club weilding Claire bitch at... oh, BugLight lighthouse!
This is the same woman and her Mark simp from the day the police showed up at my Biddeford apartment to ask:
Police: "You're EelKat, right?"
Me: "No, that's what people call me though. EelKats a fictional character from my books."
Police: "This is Biddeford, right?"
Me: "Uhm? Yeah?"
Police: "And I'm standing here in Biddeford right now, talking to you, right?"
Me: "Uhm? Yeah?"
Officer starts talking in his phone to officers Will and Robby of Old Orchard Beach Police Department: "Yeah, she's right here with me, I'm talking to her right now. Got her Autism car here and everything."
Will and Robbie: "Yeah, that's what I been saying. This isn't her."
Me: "What's going on?"
Police: "Wolfboy is trespassing on your property again…"
Me: "Wolfboy? Who's Wolfboy?"
Police: "Mark. We call him Wolfboy. He calls 911 a few dozen times a day. Constant false complaints about every one. Boy who cries wolf you know."
Me: "Who's Mark? I don't know anyone named Mark."
Police: "Town busy body. Gossips and complains about every one. He's a real pain in the ass. Pardon my French. Can't leave anyone alone."
Me: "Why is he in my yard?"
Police: "Citizens arrest. Says he's arresting you."
Police: "Yeah. He's got some bogus court documents that say you are not allowed on your own property because you're gay."
Me: "I'm gay? How am I gay?"
Police: "Yeah. Well Wolfboy thinks everybody is gay. He's waiting for the gaypocalypse, you know?"
Me: "What's the gaypocalypse?"
Police: "He thinks us guys are going to mass murder all the Christians. We have to deal with his fake 911 calls reporting us gaaaaaayz all the time."
Me: "I take it you're gay?"
Police: "Ahyap, several of us on the department. We don't like jerks like Wolfboy. He harasses people like you all the time."
Me: "Like me?"
Police: "Disabled. He targets disabled women. Thinks it makes him a man. You might not remember me. I was the one who came with the ambulance. You know? I knew you were laid up in bed here and couldn't be in Old Orchard right now, seeing how you can't walk, let alone drive."
Me: "And you said he's in my yard right now?"
Police: "Yep. He says you hired him to dig a septic tank."
Me: "I what?"
Police: "Yeah, we know. We checked. It wasn't you. We got this woman who's impersonating you. She's the one he's trying to arrest right now. She hired him to dig a hole in your front lawn. She says she's EelKat. That's why I'm here, to make sure you are here in Biddeford and not in Old Orchard Beach, right now. Buddy Will and Robbie are dealing with it."
Me: "Why is there anyone in my yard? There should never be anyone in my yard!"
Police: "Yep, we know. Wolfboy and crew do this sort of thing every day. You have no idea how often we have to deal with his crew of chronic 911 false report complainers. Whole family's crazy."
Me: "So, you're telling me there are two people in Old Orchard, right now, on my land, fighting over my land, and one of them is claiming to be me?"
Police: "Yeah, that's the deal."
Me: "He says I hired him to build a septic tank?"
Me: "Do I look like I can afford to have a septic tank built? I have twenty million in medical bills. I can't even walk! What would I even do with a septic system, my bladder and intestines don't work, I wear adult diapers because I can't even use a toilet! Why would I of all people have a septic tank put in?"
Police: "Yeah. I know. I don't think Wolfboy and crew know how crippled you are. That's why we knew whoever he had in your yard, wasn't you. I also, don't think he's ever met you. We showed him a picture of you, and he swears that it wasn't you. We showed him a picture of *name removed* and he says that's you."
Me: "She's not me."
Police: "We know."
Me: "She's been after my land for decades. Was trying to get it aways from Grammy Helen, before I inherited it."
Police: "Oh, we know. Police reports from your Helen Ricker go all the way back to the 60s. They been after the Ricker farm since before you was born. Wolfboy's bitten off more than he can chew this time. He don't know who he's dealing with. He never should have gotten messed up with the Bacon Street Gang."
Me: "Bacon Street Gang?"
Police: "Ahyep. That's who Wolfboy has got tangled up with."
Me: "Who's the Bacon Street Gang?"
Police: "A gang. Think of them as kind of like the local Mafia, only worse. Most of them are doing time for murder. A few of them are out now. I don't think Wolfboy knows that's who he's dealing with any more than he knows who you are. He wouldn't be down there right now claiming she's you if he'd ever actually met you face to face."
That woman and that Mark, are the ones behind most of the rumors and misinformation spread about me.
The woman I know. She's a relative, with a long list of mental health problems.
Her Mark buddy, that the local police call Wolfboy, I don't know. I've never seen him. Never met him as far as I know. Obviously he's some friend of hers, probably one of her exs as she has a lot of them. She's got a bad reputation for slutting around with married men and breaking up families.
But all these wild alien abduction, transgender, ufo, nutcase rumors that get spread about me, whenever I ask "Who told you that lie?" They always say it came from her, my Uncle Bruce, or some guy named Mark.
And clearly this Mark guy is talking about her, but he uses MY name when he does it, because he's convinced she is Me. It's incredibly obvious this Mark guy has never met me and has no clue he's being scammed by her. But it is incredibly annoying because, I'm the one who is crippled for the rest of my life because some blonde bitch named Claire beat me up with a golf club at Southern Maine Community College Bug Light Art Studio on November 14, 2013, while screaming "Kill or be killed, gotta kill the transvestite freaks before they kill us all!" I was 8 months pregnant. That mystery Claire bitch not only left me crippled, she also murdered my baby. Why? Because this mystery Mark guy runs around calling me transgender and gay even though I'm not trans or gay. And he's only doing that because this nut job Atwater woman who pretends to be me, is after my land, so she runs around doing crazy ass shit while pretending to be me, in order to start the crazy ass rumors in the first place!
This Claire woman is the one the FBI is looking for information on. Because no one knows who the hell she is. She's just some random nut job who clawed out of the woodwork and showed up at college one day to attack me and kill me baby, while screaming utter insanity. The guy with her called her Claire, beyond that we've no clue who she is.
This Claire woman is the one wanted for murder, agitated assault, and owes me $20million in medical bills. If she's ever identified, she's also got life in prison for murder to look forward to.
No, I can not identify her: I am blind.
Did you forget I am blind? I've been blind my whole life.
I am legally blind. I can not see faces, not even if you are close to me. I can not make out the colour of skin because there is so little variation in colour from light to dark. I can only identify the attackers by their hair colour, because I am blind and can no see their faces. That is why I do not know who these people are. I'm blind. I've been blind since I was 8 years old. I can only identify people by their scent and the sound of their voice. Yes, the golf club woman attacked a blind pregnant women, and the FBI needs help to identify her because, I'm blind, I can only id her by the sound of her voice, and I've only encountered her twice...
November 14, 2013 when she crippled me with a golf club and murdered my babyat SMCC, and June 26, 2016 when she attacked me with a shopping cart at Scarboror WalMart, she drove away in a gold volvo station wagon. The first time 2 people were with her and they called her Claire. The 2nd time only the red haired woman was with her, and she was screaming "My name is Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine!"
I do not know what the faces of wither the blond Claire who drove a gold volvo wagon or the redhair Kendra Silvermander are because I'm blind... I can see exactly 8 inches from my nose, I can't even see the ground to see my own feet. That's why the FBI is in need of witnesses to come forward and identify the 2 women who murdered my baby.
I'm blind, I don't know what they look like, I only know them by their voices.
If you have any information, about the Claire bitch who murdered my baby at BugLight Lighthouse on November 14, 2013, please call FBI Portland Office @ 207-774-9322
ask for Agent Andy Drewer.
I am severely disabled. I have been since November 14, 2013. I was paralyzed for 5 months. It took me 18 months to get out of a wheelchair. It's been 9 years and I'm still using a cane and walker to get around, but, after standing and walking for an hour or two, I collapse and have to be carried back to bed, where I end up staying for days, sometimes weeks, before I can attempt to stand up again.
And since that happened, there have been a lot of local rumores.
Plastic surgery reconstructed my face, but I noticeably don't look the same as I did for 40 years prior to becoming disabled. And this has led to a lot of local rumors... people call me a demon, or demon possessed, or an alien, or say I was abducted by aliens and that's why I look different.
Welcome to Maine, where the average person believes aliens and demons are real, and think nothing of driving a backhoe over my house, because im just a demon who deserves it, they vandalized my car repeatedly every few months I who am already disabled and severe difficultly getting out and to the store, have even less ability to get out when my car is in the shop for repairs months to a time, multiple times a year.
This is the reality of how we horrifyingly disabled people are treated, at least here in Maine.
Being attacked in the college parking lot by 3 strangers with golf clubs is what dramatically changed my appearance. Doctors, plastic surgeons, rebuilt my face as best as they could, and they did a very good job all things considering. My vertebrae are broken in such a way that my spinal column is severed and so I have almost no use of my left hand and arm, I have no control over my bladder or intestines so have to wear adult diapers. And Doctors can't operate on this injury because there is an 80% chance of me becoming paralyzed from the neck down if they even attempt surgery.
I have been sent to the top neurological surgeons in America and they've all said, they wouldn't dare take the risk of doing the surgery.
I have been 9 years, actively studying everything I can find on the subject of spine surgery. I follow every medical journal, hanging on every update, watching and waiting for the day, when surgery advances to the point that it is an option for me.
Interestingly, as a side effect of this, I started reading and watching Horror genre, something I did not previously do. Things like The Island of Dr Moreau have become my favorite books and movies. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it is because I can identify with the characters who have those radical body changing surgeries in those books and movies.
In short, I have become fully obsessed with studying all aspects of radical surgery, both real and fictional, in some sort of hope of finding, something, anything, that will help me walk again.
THIS is what this Claire woman with the gold Volvo station wagon did November 14, 2013... and made worse when she attacked the second time June 26, 2016.
The Claire woman with the gold Volvo station wagon, not only murdered my son, she completely destroyed my life, my health, my ability to function on even the most basic levels.
I can't walk, my baby is dead, there's a giant fucking hole in my yard that looks like a Moon crater, and I'm homeless because a fucking backhoe drove over my house.
And because I was paralyzed for 5 months, and spent 18 months relearning to walk, and still can't walk on my own now 9 years later, I also have $20million in medical bills, which is why I can't afford to rebuild my house.
In the meantime, some jackass with a green dump truck that has a black and silver striped nose, dumped hundreds of loads of garbage, actual literal black bags of garbage that he stole from the town dump, and dumped them in my yard. Do you know how much garbage he dumped in my yard? It was one hundred and seventy three feet long, thirty feet wide, and twelve feet tall… yes, the pile of garbage was 173 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 12 feet tall… and it cost me $12k March 2015 to have a garbage company come in and haul it away.
What the fuck?
And you know what the police said? They think this woman and her Mark buddy are having a fuel, but because she's convinced him that she is me, and he's never seen me, so he doesn't know she's not me, that the police think, he's the one doing all the harassing of me and my family, but he thinks he's harassing her and her family and doesn't know he's harassing the wrong people, because she gave him my address as her address.
So, I'm being harassed by some guy who is a total stranger to me, because he's mad at some psycho bitch who was pretending to be me.
And because of all this, I'm crippled for the rest of my life, my baby is dead, a backhoe drove over my house, and then on April 10, 2015 my 10 foster children were kidnapped, and then on May 15, 2025 there heads were nailed to the door of my big pink motor home. So, now not only am I homeless and crippled, but my family has been murdered as well, all because some bitch impersonated me spreading weird ass alien abduction lies, weird as transgender lies, and weird ass gay lies about me, because for some reason she thought that would get her my land, and in doing so, she passed off some guy who went psycho serial killer on me, while thinking he was attacking her.
And so, two criminal ass thugs are funding with each other, and now I'm homeless and crippled and my family is dead, and the FBI is here now, and according to them, me and my family was never the target, me and my family got attacked by mistake because at the start of all this, some ufo nut, thought it would be funny to impersonate me and try to make it look like I believed in aliens, because this whole thing started because of some phoney ass alien abduction ufo haunted car hoax started by my uncle Bruce back in the 1990s, because he was mad, that Stephen King filmed The Thinner movie on my land, and my uncle Bruce was mad that he didn't get to be in The Thinner movie.
All of this started because Stephen King filmed a movie in my yard almost 50 years ago, and an uncle of mine was jealous, so he had his sister, pretend to be me to start some crazy ass alien abduction rumors, her running around claiming she was me while claiming to be abducted by aliens, while dubbing my husband as "etiole" and "amphibious alien", because in their minds that was some kind of revenge porn for not being in a Stephen King movie, and they've spent almost 40 years running with their alien abduction hoax, adding more and more to it all time time, including to start calling me a transvestite... and then, these people who used to live in Utah, my uncle and his sister, come back here to Maine to run around spreading the alien and trans rumour on a local level around Old Orchard Beach and Biddeford, because, I have no ide why... they are just pure evil, and evil things like this are what hate filled evil people do.
Jealousy and hate. That's what fuels her. Pure raw jealousy and hate.
And my family is dead, my house is gone, and I'm crippled, all because some uncle of mine, whom I never even knew before any of this started, wanted to be in a Stephen King movie, and wasn't in a Stephen King movie and for some reason that was justification for all of this.
I don't get it.
The Atwaters are just hate filled, evil scum. You can't do something like this and be anything OTHER than pure evil scum.
Buglight lighthouse is where my baby was murdered on November 14, 2013 by the Kendra Silvermander and Claire bitch duo... why would I want to go there?
What the hell is she even thinking?
Every one who knows me knows my baby was murdered at Buglight lighthouse the beach behind the art studio at Southern Maine Community College in South Portland, on November 14, 2013, the same event that left me crippled for the rest of my life.
So why in the hell would anyone dare ask me to meet them at fucking Buglight lighthouse?
How much more evil can you be?
Update: February 19, 2023
??? Weird. ...
So, I just got a flurry of weird text messages… about FabeBook posts? I’ve not seen said posts, so I don’t know exactly what they says, but I’ll respond to the text messages about said posts:
ONE... who is in my yard? It's certainly not me, I broke my pelvis a week before Christmas and haven't been out of bed in 3 months. There should never be anyone in either of my yards, not the one in Biddeford nor the one in Old Orchard...
TWO... when did my cousin Danny die? First I heard of it. Last I knew he was living on a farm up by Heath road in Saco. I haven't seen him since a few years before the grease fryer bomb blew up my house, that happened on October 16, 2006... so it was sometime before 2004 last time I saw Danny. Didn't know he died. That's sad. I liked Danny. He was one of the few good Atwaters...
Three, uhm, what garden? My land in Old Orchard is bare ledge. Not even any soil to plant anything in. It's been that way for nine years. When the backhoe drove over my house August 8, 2013, it also came in with a green dumptruck and strip mined my land, they stole all of my roses, apple trees, grapes, blueberries, and flowers, and took all the top soil down to over six feet deep, strip mined my farm down to bare shale and granite. It would cost over $three-million dollars to buy new top soil to replace what the vandals stole, and I don't have that kind of money, so I've not had a garden since, no vegetables, no flowers, nothing, can't plant anything on bare ledge....
so, yeah, weird, this latest rumor, which states I stole something from Danny's grave to put in my garden. Seeing how, I didn't even know Danny died and I also don't have a garden.
........... Update February 22, 2023
So, because I didn't know Danny died, people have started sending me these long lists of Atwaters whom have died since 2015... apparently there are well over 30 - thirty - dead Atwaters, none of whom I knew had died, and many of whom, I never even heard their names before. I'm told they are largely from the Utah division of the Scottish Traveller clans. But I did notice, half of the original twelve are dead? Is that true? No one told me any of this. I had no clue. It says here that uncle Peter and his wife, Bobby's wife Cathy, and even my uncle Brucie are all dead? When did all this happen and why did no one tell me? There a bunch of cousins, second cousins, and thrid cousins on the list too, but I've never heard any of their names before I have no clue who any of them are.
There also seems to be some weird thing where they are saying no one ever told them my son was murdered November 14, 2013... my mother, my father, my step father Wade, aunt Barbara, uncle Dickie, uncle Brucie, cousin Danny, and Danny's wife Amanda all knew about this. Barbara showed up at the hospital and tried to get me to join her in some stupid ass medical scam she said she was running via her EMT job, she wanted me to be some poster child for some medical scam website she was running, she said she could get more money if she had a real cripple on her website. Dickie and Brucie were both at my Water St apartment the night it happened and they were mad that the police showed up to question my family and found them there with my daddy and some private detective, I don't know who the private detective was... according to the FBI agent in charge of the murder investigation, my dad hired the private detective to trail my mother and her then husband Wade, and Dickie and Brucie were helping my father with that.
Barbara, Dickie, and Brucie were all at the hospital November 2013, when I was paralyzed.
Barbara knew I was in a wheelchair, because in 2014, at Saco Shaw's, she stopped to talk to me, while I was shopping and in the wheelchair.
I'm also being told most of them are claiming they didn't know a backhoe drove over my house. Uncle Joey in Australia, not only knew about the backhoe driving over my house, by the FBI has copies of the $600 wire he sent to the backhoe driver. My father is the one who forged the demolition permits, with some guy named Dan who I never heard of before.
Also, you remember Barbara's ex Paul Martal... do you know what he's in prison for? FBI arrested him in 2016, for not one, but many bombs that he built, including the bomb that blew up my house October 16, 2006 and wait for it... the Boston Marathon bomb in 2013, he built it and sold it to ISIS.
The Atwaters claiming they know nothing of the 2006 bomb, is a lie, considering the FBI arrested some of them for it.
The Atwaters claiming they knew nothing of the backhoe driving over my house August 8, 2013, that replaced the bombed house, is a lie, because because Joey is the one how organized and funded it and he's going to straight to prison if he ever sets foot in America again, the FBI is ready to arrest him the moment he sets foot outside of Austraila. They have uncovered all the evidence they need to do so.
Barbara posted the message on my FaceBook wall: "The next head nailed to a door will be yours", she posted that message May 14, 2015... the DAY BEFORE my foster children's heads were nailed to the door of my motorhome. I didn't know she posted that message... the FBI agent, had screenshots of it that he had made, he showed them to me in June 2016... I didn't know she had posted that on my wall.
Yvonne and Shem, posted on my FaceBook wall more then two hundred pictures of themselves holding various guns, and on every post they wrote the words: "This is the gun I'm going to kill you with." Again, I did not see the posts, because I was in the hospital, paralized, I was paralyzed 5 months, I was 18 month relearning to walk... I've been bedridden for the last 9 - NINE - years... I found out about the death threats Shem and Yvonne were posting when an FBI agent, the one, who is now dead. Larua, she was murdered February 6, 2021... arrived, at my 6x8 tarp that I was living under in my yard... she arrived, with a huge stack of printed out screenshots of death threats posted by them, along with 27 FaceBook accounts all owned by Brucie, most of them using variations of Doris's name... all 29 of those accounts spent the entire of 2014, 2015, and 2016 DAILY posting death threats on my FaceBook wall, and often mentioned the November 14, 2013 murder of my son, the August 8, 2013 backhoe, and the April 10, 2015 SWAT team... the SWAT team being something I never mentioned online... also... the police department is in search of a VERY UNIQUE murder weapon that was used in the May 15, 2015 beheadings, and the crackhead Camilla, the cocaine dealer for the Bacon Street Gang, who is an Atwater, has been since October 2021 showing up on my Biddeford front porch to gibber about... that murder weapon... the police and the FBI never released to the public what the murder weapon was, because it is a VERY UNIQUE one of a kind hand made item. And yet, MANY of the Atwaters... 23 of them, showed up in my Biddeford driveway January 8, 2021 to gibber about that murder weapon while also chanting "God-King-Trump".
January 15, 2021, a few days later, the fbi shows up with half the fucking plice department, here at my biddeford apartment, said they followed lucy and barbara up here from some attack on the president in washington dc and wanted to know if U'd seen them? what the fuck? I have no clue. I've not see Lucy since 1994 and I've not seen Barbara since 2013 the day she tried to get me to join her weird medical scam plot. But according to the FBI... they were watching my Twith livestream tht day, so they saw the "God King Trump" chanters, as did all of my viewers, I was live and my webcam faces the driveway window so, they were chanting "God-king-trump" on my Twitch livestream... according to the FBI, those 23 people were Lucy's crew and the had stolen stuff from the White House, and were carrying the stolen white house stuff while chanting in my driveway... the FBI wanted to know if I recgonined any of them, and I didn't, the FBI had tons of pictures of them, and I don't know who any of them were... but according to the FBI, they are the adult children of several of my cousins, via Lucy and Barbara's kids. What the hell?
I am so sick and tired of the FBI showing up here and questioning me every few weeks, because of some fucking ass shit Barbaras family is doing, when I don't even know Barbara's family! I haven't babysat for her kids since I was 12 years old and that was fifty fucking years ago!
Tell me, how do so many Atwaters have inside information about the murder weapon that was used to behead my ten foster children on May 15, 2015... when those police records are sealed, were classified by the FBI, and only me, 6 FBI agents, 3 police officers, and of course the murderer, know what the murder weapon was?
I don't know who contacted the FBI... it wasn't me. I assume is was police officer Will Watson as he was the original head of the police investigation. And yet, I have many THOUSANDS of hate emails, hate snail mail letters - hand written and signed by Atwaters, accusing me of sending the FBI to "snoop in on them" as they put it. Good god! The FBI is over here interigating me 2 or 3 times a fucking month! The Atwaters act like they are the only ones who have to deal with FBI agents hanging around all the time! At least with me the FBI are here trying to help solve a crime, not interigating me of being a criminal... my fucking son was murdered! Atwaters bitching about the FBI questioning them, well maybe they shouldn't be posting death threats all over my FaceBook wall constantly none stop, the same week my sn was murdered, but that's what they are being questioned about.
I never sent the FBI anywhere... I don't control the FBI, and anyone who thinks that is got some serious mental retardation issues.
I didn't even know the FBI was actively going from Atwater to Atwater questioning them, and I wouldn't have known, had the Atwaters not been writing long hate letters and mailing them to me.
My son was murdered in 2013... it was 3 years later, when the FBI showed up to talk to me, for the first time, and yet they informed me, they'd been on the case for three years at that point and had some pretty daming evidence, about one Atwater: Paul Martal, whom I've never met, didn't even know he existed... he got 14 years in prison for the 2006 bomb that blew up my house. But what the FBI wanted to know was: Why me? It appeared he didn't know me any more than I knew him. According to the FBI, Paul Martal was in heavy contact with 2 people, and the FBI believes it's one of them, who hired the golf club woman to murder my baby November 14, 2013...
...and the problem is, I've not mentioned it to the family, The Atwaters, so they don't know, not even my parents know, but on September 12, 2021, there was another attack. I've not released any details, nor have the police or the FBI, One of the biggest ones yet. The FBI pointed out one thing... the attacks stopped when one of te two primary suspects died. They said they had reason to believe the one, of the two suspects, whom they believe murdered my son, died... so how did the the September 12, 2021 attack happen?
When that attack happened the FBI asked me to repaint paint my car: put the info from 2 different events, with the dates reversed, to see WHO would notice it was wrong. Someone DID notice it was wrong: Crackhead Camilla, cocaine dealer of the Bacon Street Gang, she showed up on my Biddeford porch less then ten hours after I painted my car. She noticed the incorrect date for the incorrect event... and she has said WHO told her... and it was one of the three people who arrived at the hospital November 2013... except, 2 of those 3 people are now dead, and the one she's naming, is the one still alive.
Who is it, who runs around telling people I believe in aliens? That same person. I don't believe in aliens. I'm the one who proved aliens and alien abductions to be a hoax, did that in 2007, posted my findings proving aliens a hoax here: https://www.eelkat.com/AmphibiousAliens.html
Who is it, who runs around claiming I say things about Utah Atwaters, people who I've never heard of, people I've never met? That same person.
Whose husband is right now sitting in prison for building the bomb that blew up my house? That same person.
Camilla was the bridesmaid of who? That same person.
Who KNEW I was paralyzed for 5 months, 18 months in wheelchair, and 9 years serverly crippled, bedridden... but neglected to tell anyone in the family? That same person.
Who is it, who is right now spreading rumors and lies about me, my brothers, and my mother, all over FaceBook? That same person.
Do you know what gaslighting means? Look at what she's doing. It's called gaslighting. It means she is trying to cast doubt on the victims, in order to make the victims look guilty, as a way to try to hide, her own crimes.
Ask yourself why you didn't know my son was murdered?
Ask yourself why you didn't know I was attacked by a blond woman with a golf club, left for dead, almost died, and have been crippled on paraplegic levels ever since?
Ask yourself why you didn't know I was paralyzed for 5 month?
Ask yourself why you didn't know I was in a wheelchair for 18 months?
Ask yourself why you didn't know my foster children, where not only murdered, but their heads were nailed to my door?
Ask yourself why you didn't know when Barbara, Brucie, and Dickie were all at the hospital, and knew what had happened. Why didn't they tell any of you? Why did they pretend not to know? Why did they hide for the rest of the family, what had happened to me?
Here's an important thing to ask: Why did none of you know the FBI was here investigating a very brutal murder that coincided with a LOT of harassment, vandalism, and hate crimes that were on levels of alarming extremes?
It's called impeding and FBI investigation.
Someone, in the Atwater family, has been very actively lying to all of you about what happened to me and my family... why? What is their motive? If they have nothing to hide, then why arethey bending over backwards to try to keep every one of you from finding out what happened to me, my son, my house, my yard, and my foster children?
Only the person doing these crimes, who any motive to try to cover them up.
Only the person who murdered my son, would have any motive to go out of their way to do everything in their power to try to make you forget he ever existed.
Only the person who did these things has any motive, to try to cover it up.
Only the person behind my son's murder has a motive to try to convince you I believe in aliens, when it's damn well documented that I don't believe in aliens.
Think about that, next time an Atwater starts spreading rumors about me, my mother, my father, my brothers, my husband, my dead children, or my dead son.
Also... who is it who told you that I knew about all these deaths in the family? Was it one of the three people who was at the hospital and knew what happened to me, but never told you all?
Also, yes... I have noticed that Dickies supposed death date is a full 3 months before he was at the hospital, before he was visiting my dad with Brucie and and having a meeting with the private investigator about Wade Witen... that's puzzling... but then again Brucie had faked his own death 4 times since the 1980s, each time to invade IRS fraud, so the Atwaters do have a history of faking their deaths. I know this because the FBI has all that info too and when interviewing me, they wanted to know if I was aware of the faked death, by 3 of the original 12 Atwaters... yep, three of the brothers have faked their deaths multiple times. So... when you people tell me Dickie and Brucie are dead, yeah, I kind of don't believe you.
Also, Barbara is the one going around telling everyone that Danny is dead and his grave is being vandalised... several people have told me that Danny is dead, his grave was being vandalised, and I a bedridden crippled, was being blamed for the vandalism, and I asked each of these people who told them this, and every one of them stated they recieved either a rtext, post, comment, email, or phone call from Barbara, some said she told them face to face in person... near as I can tell NO ONE other then Barbara os saying Danny died, no one other then Barbara is saying his grave is vandaised, and no one other then Barbara is saying I did it... also newsflash... my camera runs 24/7/365 ever since the day my foster children's heads was nailed to my door, so I can prove where I was and what I was doing every minute from May 16, 2015 to right now. The camera runs 24/7 in hopes of catching the murderer returning to attack again. Smile... if you've ever said anything to me online or offline, I have video footage of you doing it.
In case you've forgotten who Barbara is, besides being Bruce's sister, she's the 2 year old girl who was run over by this car. https://www.eelkat.com/images/1964dodge330_theGoldeneagleWorldsMostHauntedCar.jpg My 1964 Dodge 330 the one that was cut in half on May 9, 2010 by raving lunatics of the Saco Ward church calling it demon possessed. She's the one who started the rumor that the car was haunted, possesed by a demon and tried to kill her. The car used to belong to Dr Larochell, who paid Barbara $20k to stop her from spreading rumors about his car. Her rumours about his car got so bad that locals started attacking him, so in 1975 he sold the car and I bought it specifically to prove that it was niether haunted demon possessed and Barbara was just delusional and trying to get attention.
After I proved the car not haunted, I let a local elderly homeless man sleep in the car at night, while the car was parked behind my barn, 175 feet from the road in the forest where it could not be seen from the road, so no one knew the WW@ veteran was sleeping in my car... until that is, in 1978, Barbara tresspassed on my land, found him there, declared him first a demon, then in the 1990s started calling him "The Amphibious Alien"... Barbara is the only Atwater who ever learned French and guess what, she is also the one who coined the name "Etiole" and started calling the homeless WW2 vet "Etiole" and she is the one who has been vocal in instigating EVERY SINGLE attack on Etiole and my 1964 Dodge 330.
Also, do take a look at Barbara... we look alike, she and me... we can almost pass for twins. And what keeps happening around locally? People keep saying they are encountering me doing and saing things in places I've never been to, to people I've never heard of!
Also, every time I go outside, people - ttal strangers - keep coming up to me and asking me why I am emailing them stuff about aliens, and newsflash: I don't even use email! What the hell? I couldn't eail some one even if I wanted to!
In November, this guy comes up to me, he's about 90 years old and carrying this massive stack of sheets of paper - like 300 sheets, it's an entire reem of paper, and he starts waving it around and says it's print out of all the emails I sent him just in the past week, he says he gets more then three thousand emails from me on a daily basis and it's all crazy stuff about aliens... I looked at the papers and, the emails are coming from tons of emails with the word "eelkat" in the name, but they aren't mine. I'm not sending these things out to people and I don't know who is... but I do know who has a history of impersonating me with emails: Barbara!
In 1996, she started an email war with the Atwaters, with two emails, one that she said was heres, and one that she said was mine.
At that point... I had never had contact with an American, or TV, or electricity... I had never heard of computers or internet or email... he email war, was her, impersonating me, and sending hundred of hate filled emails to my aunts, uncles, and counsins... I found out about it a year later when Bishop Paul Morgan of the Cape Elezabeth Ward (no, not the Portland Ward, but yes the same building) called me in to his office one day, to ask why I was sending so many hundreds of emails about aliens and alien abductions to him and 750 other members of the church. No that's not a typo... seven hundred and fifty members of the church...
I had 3 questions for Paul Morgan:
1: What's email?
2: What are aliens?
3: What's alien abduction?
I had never heard of those 3 things before.
Paul Morgan had print outs of those emails, and it took me over a month to read those more then six thousand sheets of paper, but I read every one of them.
Paul Peterson, administrative director of Pine Land Center Insane Asylum... he showed up at church a few weeks later, yeah... turns out, several Atwaters used to be, how shall we call it... straight jacketed in padded cells because they were insane... and Pine Land Center, government run mental health institute, lost funding, shut down, in... oh look... 1996... and literally just let formally straight jacket nut cases, walk free out the front door. It's not hard to find out who the inmates of Pine Land Center were... the micro films are available in New Gloughster. So, yeah, that evidance exists and says a lot.
ALL of the rumors about me, my mother, my father, my brothers, my husband, my cars... all the Demon rumors, all the alien rumors, ALL of it... every single rumor, all the way back to the 1960s... all of them, were started by one person, Barbara, because, she was the 2 year old girl who was hit by that car, and she's pissed that I bought it, and she's even more pissed that Stephen King, my neighbour at the time, made a movie about it... did you know my real name is Christine and that's why the car is named Christine in the movie, even though the real car was named The Goldeneagle.
After Christine, Stephen King returned to film Thinner on my farm, and THAT is why, Barbara, has had endless amounts of jealosue rage and hatred for my farm, my land, my house... did you know I've rebuilt my house 5 times now... the backhoe has driven over THREE houses on my land, we keep rebuilding and it keeps coming back... but before the backhoe there was the bomb... and who did the FBI arrest for building that bomb again? Barbara's husband Paul Martal. That's what he went to prison for. He built the bomb that blew up my house, the FBI found him with the bomb parts in his house and car.
That's why, I always ask, when these weird rumors about demons and aliens show up... who told you? And EVERY SINGLE PERSON, EVERY SINGL TIME... they always say: "Barbara told me", "Baraba said it" , "Barbara called me" , "Barbara emailed me"... and so, I'm not surprised to find out that the rumors flying around this week, are once again, started by the same person who always starts them: the pissed off now adult, 2 year old girl, who 60 years ago was run over by the world's most haunted car, and is the one who both declared it haunted and dubbed the homeless man living in it as "Etiole"
Know your sources people. Do your background checks. Find out if the one spreading the rumors about me, might actually have a motive. Barbara REALLY hates that car. And at the core, her hatred of that car, her rage that Stephen King made it famous, is the cause of everything.
But guess what: Barbara and Brucie and their fucking endless jealose rage, is why I'm crippled, why my son is dead, why I've had to rebuild my house on my land five fucking times now... I'm not bothering any of them, I never have , and I don't know why they are bothering me! I want those bastards to fucking leave me, my family, my cars, my land, and anything else of mine alone.
Uhm… okay… so, a member of the Sanford ward church was just in a rage yelling at me about the drug raid across the street last year at the missionary apartment and this being the 18th anniversary of the dead girl in the Scarborough marsh… and, I'm not sure why they are yelling at me about it…but they were mad saying: "Why is the FBI here talking to you about the dead girl in Scarborough. You aren't family."
Uhm… no, but I am the one who found the body and called 911 to report it. And I've had to deal with police and FBi questions in regards to her death for the past few decades every single time they get a lead they show up and ask me:"So tell us once again what you saw." And I tell them yet again about the girl with no head, the thirty dogs with no heads, and that, I never saw her or the dogs before.
I was driving to work and they were all laid out ritual like in the road, not a one of them had any heads. Not the girl, not any of the dogs.
First experience with headless bodies… but far from the last. And police and fBi believe the killer was there and saw me call 911 and that's why my 75 pet roosters had their heads cut off and their bodies tied in rope nooses and hung in my Orchard fruit trees and rose bushes shortly after.
I can show you where ever body was the girl and the dogs. The first one was at the Ross rd Portland rd intersection at the light by where the medical building is now. The next one was at the Eastern trail Bridge just before the rv center. There was another at the cascade rd intersection by the flea market... they continued like that all the way to the Scarbourogh marsh. All black dogs, mostly Rottweilers and black labs, more than 30 of them, leading in a path to the dead girl. None of them had heads. Not the girl or the dogs.
It was after dark, I was on my way to Macy's.
The fbi says they think it was the same person who beheaded my cousin Murphy in 2013, beheaded 75 of my roosters and hung them from nooses in trees in 2007, murdered my son in 2013, and beheaded my mother's cats in 2015... he says there were 11 other beheading like this between 2001 and 2015 all of them invloving a huge amount of pets, mostly dogs and cats, but also birds and horses… in title more then 500 pets just on Portland Ave in old Orchard beach alone, the first one was a German Shepherd in June 2001 whose head was hung on the bucket of his owners bulldozer, and there have been 7 more since 2015 to 2021, all on Portland Ave, Ross rd, and Cascade Rd.
The dead girl in Scarborough had no head, neither did any of the dogs. I'm the one who called the police.
I was there when they found Timmy Murphy on cascade and Ross rd intersection. He had no head either.
My cousin Murphy, the newspaper said he was hit by a truck. But that's not what happened. I was there. Police made me wait 3 hours while they looked for his head. I got questioned all over for that. It happened June 2013. Backhoe drove over my house August 8, 2013, and golf club woman attacked November 14, 2013... fbi thinks the backhoe and golfclub attacks were both because I was there when Timmy's body was being wrapped up by police. The police found his head 2 weeks later down by my driveway on Portland Ave almost a half mile from where they found his body.
They believe the killer of my cousin Timmy was at the scene while the police were questioning me, and that's how the killer knew to target my house with the backhoe a month later… the issue with that is, one of my uncles, paid the backhoe driver, but that uncle lives in Australia and wired the money to the backhoe driver. The police have all the paperwork for this. And the police can't figure out, why it appears that my Atwater relatives are heavily invested in impending the investigation of what police are calling "the Ouellette case".
It appears the Atwaters are being egged on by someone involved in the murder of the headless Scarborough marsh girl, and that the Atwaters are being deliberately needled into a frenzy at me and my family in a bold attitude to through police off the killers trail.
The thing is, the Atwaters have gone into wild extremes bringing in weird alien abduction rumors that are just outlandish… but then… one of my uncles, when the FBI went to interview him… he had dozens of dead, headless black dogs, black cats, and black chickens laying in weird pentagram ritual formations, all over his yard, in his driveway, around his house, hanging on his fences… and… well… dead headless black animals were all around the Scarborough marsh that day of the dead girl… and so… it kind of looks a lot like one of my uncles either is the murderer or at least is the one supplying the murderer with dead black pets.
So, this lead the FBi to ask me more questions, because now it looks like the Atwaters lashing out at my family has a far bigger motive then, them just being crazy lunatic ufo nuts.
I've been a witness at 4 different beheadings.. and was the one who called police each time.
The raid at the Saco Ward missionary apartment across the street…I never said the raid across the street was a drug raid... the state drug force wasn't there. Ive seen drug raids before. My Atwater relatives are notorious for drugs, ive been in the house when two drug raids happened, one in 1982 and one in 2016 and both times the state police drug team was the one who did the raid.
State police drug team wasn't there at the raid on the missionary apartment across the street last year, it the US Marshalls and FBI there. They had 8 people handcuffed face down in the road in front of our apartment. And they said it was about the Ouellette case, specifically the headless girl in Scarborough marsh. I know this, because thry asked me if i recognized any of these 8 people. One I did, she's been my dads nurse since 2009. Fbi was here asking me about that raid, because he wanted to know if the dead cats and birds in the road here in front of our Biddeford apartment were lined up same way as the dead dogs were back in Scarborough years ago with the dead girl.
Me and others locally have been finding dead pets lined up on Main Street, western Ave, Cutts St, West Cutts st, James St, and Bradbury st every since summer 2021, I sent videos footage of all the dead pets to fbi, because it DID look like same ritual pattern used in my yard with roosters in 2007 and my mother's cats in 2015 and those dogs with the dead girl at the Scarborough marsh.
That's why I stopped walking around our apartment at night... dead cats and birds are being set up around my apartment and also my mothers apartment... looks like whoever killed cats and roosters in Old Orchard, wanted me to know they knew where I lived.
The officers think the person leaving the dead pets all around our apartment is whoever killed the headless girl at the marsh... they think that's why the attack on my roosters happened in 2007, the backhoe in 2013, the golf club women who killed my son and crippled me in 2013, because I'm the one who called the police about the headless dogs in Scarborough with the dead girl.
Weird, this Sanford Ward Mormon, who was just here at my apartment, made the comment: "But the dead girl in Scarborough wasn't beheaded."
I don't know if there's a different girl too or not. I only know about the headless girl, the one I called 911 about all those decades ago. I never looked up the news reports so I don't know if they ever mentioned the thirty dead dogs or her and the dogs having no head. I don't know what the news said about it. I don't even know her name. I just know whenever the police or FBI ask me to retell how the dogs were laid out, they always call it "The Ouellette Case". Beyond that I know nothing about it.
My focus has always been on the attacks on me and my family. I don't know any of the other families. I just know the officers said the April 10, 2015 attack on my farm was the 11th such attack on Portland Ave since June 2001 and that they now tell me there have been seven more such attacks on Portland Ave since 2015. They said a lot of details have not been released to the public, but that there are a few common things recurring in every attack which indicates it's just one person (group of persons) doing it. They say they keep going back to all 18 of our families reasking us for details we can remember because they are trying to match up the similarities of each case.
I know what details were left out of reports about the attacks on my family. I don't know anything about any of the other 17 families at all.
I don't understand these Saco and Sanford ward church members who keep showing up all upset because I'm trying to find out who murdered my son and left me crippled. What is their problem? It's MY family that's dead, not theirs, what the fuck business is it of theirs? Why are they so damned ruffled up about me asking for anyone with information to call the FBI? By being upset like this, they are just making themselves look suspicious. When they are mad that I'm asking people for help finding the killer, they just make themselves look like they are involved, they make it look like they know who the killer is, they make it look like they are protecting and defending the killer. Do they not realize how suspicious they make themselves look when they get angry that I ask on Facebook for anyone with info to please call the FBI and help put my son's killer in prison?
Do you remember Timmy? He's the same age as you and me. He's the one who lived at the black house next door to my on Portland Ave. He was the used car dealer, the one who always have a dozen or so cars lined up for sale across his front lawn. He also owned Etiole's swamp, my abutting neighbour from the back side of the land. He used to help me babysit Barbara's kids back in the 1970s and 1980s, we used to duo babysit together.
Timmy Murphy was the one beheaded June 2013 at the Ross Rd and Cascaed Rd intersection.
That's why I can't understand these Todd Murphy fucktrds who spent the entire of November 2021 to May 2022, daily arriving in my Biddeford driveway, chanting "Todd Murphy! Todd Murphy! Todd Murphy! Todd Murphy! Todd Murphy!" while vandalizing both the building and my car. They did $10k+ in damages to my Volvo and they did so much damage to the building that landlord Matt Holiday couldn't afford to repair the apartment building so he sold it because the city of Biddeford was going to condemn the building and kick out all 9 families at 409 Maine Street, because the Todd Murphy fucktard attackers did so much damage to the building. People know about them cutting all the wires off the building, but it was a lot more then that. They did huge amounts of stucture damage to the building itself as well. That's why Matt sold the building. He just didn't have enough money to repair the damages.
But the thing was, these vandals were acting like they thought I knew who Todd Murphy was, and I never heard of anyone by that name before. I think they mixed up whoever this Todd Murphy was with my cousin Timmy... who is not an Atwater... what the fuck are the Atwaters even talking about? Timmy was my dad's older sister's god-son. My aunt Victoria from Portland? The one who lived in that big tower on the waterfront up on the Promanard.
Why are the Atwaters so damned fucking arrogant that they think they are the only relatives I have? The Allens of Allen Ave in Portland are my relatives too you know, and Timmy Murphy was one of them. You know, the whole family who founded Amatos... the woman who founded Amatos was my dad's great aunt. That's why we always get free food at Atmatos, their family. The Atwaters don't hold a fucking monopoly over me, what the hell is wrong with them? You know, I'm sick of the Atwaters barging their way into everything and trying to make everything be about them. They aren't the center of the world and they need to stop acting like they are.
Near as I can tell, these Todd Murphy vandals are conneted to the Atwaters somehow, but I don't know how. And again, they are impeeding a fucking FBI murder investigation. Do the Atwaters know how to do ANYTHING other then stick their busy body noses in places they don't belong? What the fuck?
Do you know what the police said? They said Todd Murphy is the son of someone my mother and Barbar fight with on FaceBook. I've had my mother and Baraba both blocked on FaceBook since the shit they pulled back in 213 after my son was murdered. I don't have a fucking clue who my mother or Barbara are friends with on FaceBook, I have them blocked. I've had them blocked for 10 years this Novmber.
But then, I have fucktards from the Sanford Ward church showing up here now, do you realize how far they have to drive to get here to my driveway? What the hell? And they claim that Todd Murphy was a member of the Sanford Ward... you know what he's not on the rouster. You know I'm a member of that church right? I got access to the rouster, because my husband is the high preist quorum leader of that church... there's no one named Todd Murphy who is a member of the Sanford Ward church, and there hasn't been in the last 48 years that I've attended that church. So now I'm left wondering, even more what the fuck?
Who the ell is Todd Murhy and why the fuck should I care? I haven't got a clue what these people are talking about. I don't know who they are and I don't know who their Todd Murphy is.
Only thing I can figure, is somehow, something my mother and Barbara said, convinced these people that when I talk about Timmy Murphy's murder case that I'm talking about Todd Murphy. But why? Was Todd Murphy murdered in 2013 of the Ross Rd in Old Orchard Beach, same as my cousin Timmy Murphy, who was also my abutting neighbor and had the same birthday as me, so we celebrated our birthdays together, you know because we grew up together and knew each other own entire lives?
I mean, what the hell? And what does Todd Murphy have to do with The Ouelltte case aka the beheaded girl in the Scarborogh Marsh from 20 years ago? That's what they were talking about last night... thee Snford Ward members who were here in my ard in Biddeford last night, who yes, I do know who they are, but I don't know who this Todd Murphy is that they are talking about or what he has to do with my cousin Timmy Murphy and that girl, both being beheaded down the street from my Old Orchard Beach farm?
I asked, no one in Timmy's family knows any one named Todd. None of my Scarborough or Old Orchard Beach Murphy relatives know or have ant relatives named Todd, so none of them, know what the fuck these people in Biddeford are talking about. You know just because someone has the same last name, doesn't mean they are relatede, right? Do these Todd Murphy people who won't stop hrassing us, and now clearly have a connection to the Sanford Ward realize that?
And what is with Joel Bailey? What? Yeah... they're bringing Joel Bailey back into stuff? He went to prison in 2013, he, if you forgot was the counsellor of the Bisiop of the Saco Ward church, the entire bishiprisk went to prision, 2 to 10 years each one, along with the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, oh wait, he was one of the bishipric, and 13 people from the Old Orchard Beach town hall and police departments, all members of the Saco Ward church, for stealing a little bitty number of thirty MILLION dollars in Old Orchard Beach tax funds out of the town hall bank account, which I only found out about, because they tried to forge my name onto the documents and that was why FBI Laura, the agent ho was murdered in Florida on Feberuary 6, 2021, was sent to interview me in 2007, 2010, and 20134... the Saco Ward church bishopric stole $30million from the Old Orchard Beach town hall and tried to pin it on me, only, I can't count, mI never learned math, and they didn't know I couldn't possibly have written the math figures. I don't know how to do money and only someone really good with money could have done the things they did. They also put a lot of stuff in Ken Shoop's name. That Joel Bailey, the one who is now out of prison and likes to walk circles around my Biddeford apartment all summer long in 2022. Yeah, I am aware he's back, the mini-Winnie RV that parks at the Biddeford High School at night, he is the one driving it.
Given his past history, no, I'm not surprised at all to find his name bring brought back up. Though the Saco Ward Mormons now trickling out of prison and back on the streets, would explain why the vandalism started up again, seeing how they were the ones who used to do most of it and the vandalism did stop when they went to prison.
I'm sick of the Atwaters and their Mormon friends. They're nothing but criminals, drug dealers, and gangster thugs.
The fact remains, the only thing I'm focused on is finding my son's killer and the Atwaters and their Mormon thugs, are interupting that, and I want to know WHY? No one who is not guilty of being involved in my son's murder has any reason or incentive to be here harassing me and telling me to take the FBI phone number off my FaceBook wall, and that's what they are doing and I want to know why. What business is it of theirs if the FBI phone number is on my FaceBook wall and what is their involvment with my son's murder that they think the FBI phone number on my FaceBook wall effects them?
Here's a weird one… I just got a text message from a Sanford Ward Mormon which states: "I've known you for 40 yeas I would remember you being attacked how come you never mentioned it before now"
Uhm… since 1996, my website, originally known as Space Dock 13, has documented daily blog posts of every day of my life.
The July 2, 2001 attack, when a house mover cut our house in half, put it on a flatbed and drove it to Waterville, was documented the day it happened. It was also the first attack. My neighbor's German shepherd dog was beheaded and left in the bucket of his bulldozer that same day.
Go look at my blog… every day since July 2, 2001 , every attack, from the minor paintball attacks to the big house bomb attacks, are all documented, each blog post written the day it happened. There are more then ten thousand daily blog posts just on that one blog, chronologizing every event of every day of my life and including every attack, since June 2001.
That fact that they only just noticed it now, does not mean, I've never mentioned it… it just means they were too self absorbed to notice anything going on around them. It also means I was never important enough to them, for them to notice I was homeless, or in the hospital, or had a baby that was murdered. … their shock of just discovering these things, says more about their lack of caring about me, then anything else.
As for the headless girl and dogs in the marsh, the murder of my cousin Timmy Murphy, and the golf club attack ,the 3 events they specifically brought up in their text…
I had Squidoo articles about all 3 events. Squidoo went out of business in 2014.
I have more then a thousand blog posts published between 2007 and 2013, on Tumblr, BlogSpot, and WordPress, about those 3 events.
On YouTube I had more than 2k video uploads between 2008 and 2017 that did absolutely nothing but talk about those events, and included the interrogations by police and Fbi, which I've recorded all of since May 2015. So, yes, you can go watch FBI agent Andy Drewer, lawyer Gene Libby in the Biddeford District Court, and police officer Will Watson, and dozens of others talking about these events, on YouTube, because my camera catches everything.
Since 2008, I have posted daily on Facebook and Twitter asking for witnesses to come forward about the dead dogs and the marsh girl...
Since June 2013, I added Tim Murphy to my daily Facebook request for witnesses to come forward,
Since August 2013, I added the back hoe driving over my house info to my daily Facebook requests for witnesses to come forward.
since November 2013, daily every single day requests for witnesses to the attack at phi theta Kappa ceremony at bug light lighthouse, where my baby was murdered and I was left crippled for the rest of my life.
I'm still crippled by the way, are they going to tell me they didn't notice that either? Did they not notice I was 5 months paralyzed, wait I know that person noticed because in February 2014 that exact same person carried me to their car and from their car into the hospital precisely because I was paralyzed and couldn't walk…. The person who carried me to the hospital because I was paralyzed and had to be carried is the exact same person who is now saying they don't remember this… and yet, they are the ones who had to fill out the paperwork to admit me in the hospital and their signature is on those documents. So, proof they are lying, right there.
after the June 2016 attack by the 2013 golf club woman, this time at walmart, the fbi gave me a hotline number for witnesses to call... this phone number has been on the flyers in the windows of my Volvo ever since June 2016 and these events are printed on said flyers.
Also in June 2016 the Old Orchard Beach Libby library and the Biddeford McArthur library and the Old Orchard Beach Salvation Army Church all printed up flyers about these events, and spent the summer handing them out to tourists and the fBI number was on all of those.
This is all very well documented as, I have been post them DAILY for over a decade now... and I talk about it constantly in my livestreams which I started doing in May 2015.
Just because one person had their head shoved too far up their church's ass to know what was going on in their own family, and they only just now noticed what was going on around them, doesn't mean I only just now started talking about it.
This is why I don't like churches. Church people are so focused on their Bibles that they haven't got a clue what's going on in the real world around them.
Not to mention all of the police reports, there are more than four hundred police reports, which span twenty one police departments, in three states as well as the Maine state police and the Florida state police, plus the FBI besides! Most of those police reports are public record, you can go read them for yourself. As far as I know only 3 of them were classified and sealed from public access which means there's still 400+ that can be read. There were newspaper reports of some of the attacks. And even though I don't own a TV so have never seen the tV news reports, I know those exist because there were so many TV station news reporters showing up in my yard with camera crews asking for interviews with me. This case is so damned well documented. It's utterly ridiculous to think there is a single person in Southern Maine who is so self absorbed and so oblivious that they have never heard of this case or any of the events that have happened within it in the last 18 fucking years!
But the worst part is, this my own church, a church I have been a member of for 48 fucking years, that is saying, they never heard of this! What the hell? There were more than 24 people from the Saco and Sanford Wards arrested by the FBI just since 2015, because of their involvement in this case. Several of them are still in prison. These people are really that oblivious that they didn't know I was in the hospital, they didn't know I was in a wheelchair, they didn't know my son was murdered, and they didn't noticed 24 members of their congregation disappeared because they went to prison for their involvement.
Really? Wow do these people really give a shit about their fellow congregation members or what? They not only didn't notice I was missing from meetings for 9 years because I am bedridden now, they also didn't notice 24 other members not in meetings because they are now in prison. Talk about dense numb skulls.
It appears the High Priest is back. You, Paul, have met the High Priest. You met him at WalMart. You met him at McDonalds, where you had a 4 hour long conversation with him. You met him my yard in Old Orchard when you visited a few days after the April 0, 2015 attack, and can I add here that you are the ONLY person since that happened, to ever once stop by and ask how I was doing, it’s you’re the only person I knew before the murder of my family, whom I still talk to. You ARE the only person, who ever showed you actually cared about what was going on.
Not one single member of my family or my church has ever stopped to see how I was doing, has ever asked online how I was doing.
But, since November 2021, Sanford Ward mormons have been showing up, all of them in wild raging infernos, and all of them talking about people and events I know nothing about, so I have no clue what any of them ae talking about, but they act like they think I know who the names they mention are, in particular they are cult-like worshiping someone names Todd Murphy whom I can only assume they have gotten mixed up with my beheaded cousin Tim Murphy of Pine Point district of Scarborough and Old Orchard Beach, somehow.
They showed up near daily from November 21, 2021 until May 17, 2022. They were lead on by two blond girls who looked like twins, and have mega long knee-length hair they kept in pony tails, and a smaller pudgier girl with a mint-green pixie hair cut. I don’t know these girls, they looked to be in their 20s. They are the same girls who spent the entire summer of 2021 harassing the homeless man who was living under the trestle bridge across the street from us. They would show up on bicycles every night around 1AM, chase him up out of the ravine, then chase him up the old back tracks along the dirt road to South Street, up towards your place. They did that every night for about 5 months, until he got hit by a freight train on Nov 19, 2021 at 6:27PM. They started attacking my and my family Nov 21, 2021, I think because they knew I had video footage of them harassing the homeless man and I think too they were pissed that I call the police when they killed him by cornering him at the bridge overpass so he couldn’t get out of the way of the oncoming train. Outside of them nightly harassing the homeless man, and then spending Nov 21, 2021 to May 17, 2002 chanting “Todd Murphy” in my driveway while vandalizing my car and apartment building, I’ve never seen these girls before of since. They seemed to have completely vanished May 17, 2022. Not seen them at all and the vandalism stopped cold turkey that day. I assume the police must have finally caught and arrested them, but the police never said they did, and in the past when someone harassed me, the police would always ask me to go to the station to ID them after the arrest.
In any case, the “Todd Murphy” dipshit bitches stopped harassing us May 17, 2022, and I heard no more of them, until this past month… only it’s not them showing up this time… this time it’s older people, elderly people in their 70s and 80s, members of the Sanford Ward Mormon church across the street from Curtis Lake Church… Curtis Lake Church being the congregation that shows up in my Old Orchard driveway with the “god hates fgs” signs and calling me a transvestite and calling my car gay, and marching around chanting “too gay for the family friendly town of Old Orchard Beach”... several Curtis Lake members have been arrested by the FBI and gone to prison for their involvement in both the April 10, 2015 attack on my family and the headless Marsh girl. However, to date,, the killer has not been found, every one arrested so far has always been weird “cultist-like” gay-haters who are attacking people in the area while chanting “kill or be killed remember Saco Shaws” and then rambling gibbering about heads in ice cream. The people arrested, for 5 different local churches, are all outspoken in radically preaching a doctrine of beheading anyone suspected of being gay, while stating that they are doing so on god’s orders.
That’s why there has been so much difficultly in finding out who killed the marsh girl and my cousin Murphry and my family, because, it looks like it’s not just one person, but rather an entire group of people involved, and so far, all evidence has pointed to those 5 churches: Saco Ward, Sanford Ward, Grace Point, Curtis Lake, and New Life, all in Biddeford, Saco, or Sanford, and all run by just 2 families. One family runs 3, another family runs the other 2.
Anyways, I was just thinking, and I think I figured out why the Sanford Ward Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints members are seemingly so clueless and unaware that I have been crippled and bedridden for nine years and why they were unaware that 24 members of their congregation have gone to prison, arrested by the FBI for being accomplices in the The Ouellette Murder Case aka The Cascade Murders aka The string of beheading on and around Portland Ave, Ross Rd, and Cascade Rd the past twenty years, which included the headless girl I found in the Scarborough Marsh, my cousin Timmy Murphy whom I found headless on the Ross and Cascade Rod crossroads, the beheading of my own foster children… Ben is the common link to all of them.
Ben, as you know, has severe dissociative identity disorder, that was brought on when his brother Willy commit suicide.
Ben has seven different, very distinctive different “people” living in him, that we know of, there could be moe then 7. Etiole is the one most locals are familiar with, though he does not call himself Etiole, Etiole being a name locals dubbed him. However, there is the High Priest, who is the one you, Paul, are personally most familiar with.
I’ve not seen the High Priest since April 10, 2015. Ben WAS there the day of the attack, he was also attacked… the attackers had me, my mother, one of my brothers, and Ben, all on the ground with guns to our heads, while they use a weird looking long pole with a piano wire-like loop on the end, to cu the heads off of everyone else who was there. Me, my mother, one of my brothers, and Ben, were the only ones to walk out of that attack alive. Ben’s favorite daughter Bella was one of the ones beheaded. His mind snapped, because, he recognized one of the attackers as “Rick”... When the attackers arrived, Ben ran up to one of them and said “Rick! What are you doing here?” Ben does have a friend named Rick… I know Rick. Rick is a very violent, vicious spouse abuser. His wife Paula used to come to church been to a pulp every week. Broken arms, broken legs, broken nose, black eyes. It went on for years. She finally divorced him and fled to Utah when he beat and nearly killed their teenage son. Rick has beaten me up, right in the Sanfard Ward church building. He’s a major bully, a huge bigot, and an extreme white power racists. Rick WAS there April 10, 2015… he didn’t have a white pillow case over his head like the rest of them did, but I don’t kow if he was a part of the attack or not, I was too busy trying to fight the bastard who was holding me own with a pistol in my face, to notice what Rick was doing. It was Rick though, his face in unmistakable… he has no face. Elephant man disease, I think you cal it, but you can’t mistake Rick, and he WAS in my yard April 10, 2015 the day my family was murdered, I just don’t know what he was doing there or if he was involved in the attack or not.
The thing is, something snapped in Ben that day. ALL 7 of his multiple personalities vanished, including the High Priest, thankfully. You know how bad the High Preist could get, you met him several times.
Ben left the Mormon church. I don’t know what triggered him more: his favorite daughter Bella being beheaded in front of him or his best friend Rick, seeming to be the one leading the charge ahead of estimated 74 people in white robes and white pillow cases over their heads.
In either case, Ben has developed a server hatred for the Mormon church and refuses to set foot in a Mormon church building… he who was High Priest Quorum Leader of the Sanford ward for so many decades.
The thing about the High Priest, was he was everything so far the opposite of who Ben, my husband, actually is.
The High Priest Quorum Leader of the Sanford ward boldly proclaims to be a virgin. Ben in not a virgin. Not even close. He had a prostitute problem back in the 1980s when I met him.
The High Priest Quorum Leader of the Sanford ward boldly proclaims to not be married, yet Ben and I got married on the Old Orchard Beach Pier August 13, 1987, so he’s been married several decades and still is, we don’t live together because he’s terrified of the Bishop finding out he has a wife. Keeping in mind Mormons don’t forbid priests from marrying, however Ben grew up extreme strict Catholic and his brother is the current leader of Opis Dia and he has to keep up appearances of being a Catholic Priest for his brother, from times when he visites from Italy, which happens a few times a year. Ben became a High priest in the Mormon church, but then goes to several local Catholic churches when his brother is in America, so that he can say he’s a High Priest without lying about it, and keeps his brother thinking he’s Catholic High Priest when he’s actually a Mormon High Priest. In other words, Ben lives a very big double life of trying to juggle his priesthood in two religions, hiding it from each other religion, while also maintaining a (very annoyed) wife (me) that he hides from BOTH religions.
Which is WHY, I’m allowed to PUBLICLY be friends with you, because it helps him to keep up the facade of “see, I’m not married, she hangs around with Paul”, which yes, that IS what Ben tells people at church about you.
Yes, Ben is a dick, I am very aware of this.
But, here’s the thing… Ben TELLS ME he is no longer in contact with any Mormons whatsoever, claims he hates, them, claims he shuns them, claims he’s not spoken to any of them since April 10, 2015…. HOWEVER… he was caught in July 2022, giving one of the Sanford Ward Mormons a ride to the store…. And Rick specifically, has been one the phone with him, when I came in the room and he thought I was elsewhere, causing Be to run around in a panic, knock his glasses off, break them by stepping on them, all while Rick was screaming out of the phone, “Ben, ya there? What happened? What’s going on?”
It appears the High Priest is back…. However, I suspected this in November 2021… the High Priest uses specific pontificating phraseology that none of Ben’s other personalities use…. And on november 24, 2021, the same night the Sanfard Ward Mormons were here cutting the wires off our Biddeford apartment building, Ben started talking like the High Priest again. It’s really distinctive. Normal people don’t talk in long winded drawn out droning, monologuing pontifications about Jesus, and of Ben’s 7 known people living inside him, the High Priest is the only ne who does this. Ben was here and witnessed the wire cutting event, he even went out side and talked to the crowd of “Todd Murphy” chanting lunatics to try to talk to them… and,... he said one of them is Todd Murphy’s grandmother from the Sanford Ward. Ben indicated at that point that he knew who Todd Murphy was, but since then, has denied knowing who Todd Murphy is. But, he came in, and told me outright that “I know her from the Sanfard Ward, she’s Todd Murphy’s grandmother”..
Each of the 7 people who live in Ben have no knowledge or memory of the other 6, and when one of the 7 does or says something, none of the other 6 have any memory of doing or saying those things.
It appears that The High Priest knows Todd Murphy, not only that, but also knows the attackers who came here daily from November 21, 2021 to May 17, 2022… and it looks like Ben, in his High Preist version of himself, is the one who told them where I live and is the one who worked them into a frenzy to begin with.
I have video footage of the homeless man who died Nov 19, 2021… a LOT of it. He knew Ben. That was obvious. Me and Ben were walking Main Street every night the summer of 2021 and the homeless man from under the trestle bridge would stop to talk to us a few times a week. And those weren’t just videos, those were Twitch livestreams so everyone watching my channel saw this homeless man stop and talk to Ben… he said he knew us. I did not recognize him, but Ben… I don’t know… Ben acted like he did know the homeless man, but didn’t want me to know it, so he told the homeless man he was mistaken. But people around local are saying that thie homeless man who kept showing up in my videos IS Todd Murphy, they say they saw my videos and it was Todd Murphy in my videos.
I am finding this whole thing very confusing… because NOW… even though I have video footage of Ben talking to the homeless man, Ben now claims, he never saw the homeless man at all and tells me I’m delusional. That's what he said: Ben said: “Your delusional, there was no homeless man” and, yet hundreds of people, many of them local, saw those videos of Ben talking to the homeless man. Which means, the man Ben was when he was walking with mt summer 2021,is NOT the man he is right now… and… either this a new 8th personality Ben has recently developed, or, it’s the High Priest back, but being deliberately sneaky to try to hide the fact that he’s the High Priest… which is odd, because before now, NONE of Ben’s multiple personalities have ever showed any signs of acknowledging any of the others, and the High Priest trying to high he’s the High Priest by trying to act like a different person, indicates the High Priest DOES remember and IS AWARE of the other personalities.
As you are well aware, I HATE the High Priest. I want nothing to do with him. I never would have married Ben if I had ever encountered his High Priest alter ego before marrying him.
June 26, 2016… FBI Agent Andy Drewer asked me to meet him at his Portland office on Middle St. He had… info. And a new primary suspect. Ben, specifically his High Priest alter ego, is the FBI’s #1 suspect in being the inforat, who told the golf club attackers I was at BugLight Lighthouse November 14, 2013. The FBI has phone records. I told only 3 people, where I was going that night: my mother, my father, and Ben. I told them only 5 minutes before I left, because I had been sick earlier and had previously told everyone I was not going to that event at the college. According to the FBI, my parents and step father Wayne Whiyyen, never left Biddeford, they continued to argue all night, and the FBI knows this because my father had hired a private investigator to tail Wayne, and so they have a lot of evidence as to where 2 of the 3 were. Ben on the other hand, called his friend Rick, the same Rick who was in my yard April 10, 2015… Minutes after I left my dad’s Water St apartment and drive to Southern Maine Community College, November 14, 2013… Ben called Rick. Rick drove to Ben’s house. And the two of them together left.
FBI Agent Andy Drewer had one question: “How well do you trust Ben? Because right now, he’s our primary suspect.”
They believe Ben told Rick, I was pregnant with someone else’s baby and Rick is the one who sent the golf club women to deliberately kill my baby.
Why do they believe this?
Because between 1987 and 2013 I have had 7 miscarriages, something that can be proven… Ben ins the only man I’ve ever been with. It’s not possible for anyone else to be the father. This was my 8th pregnancy by Ben and he was at the time running around accusing me of cheating on him with Etiole. The thing is… he IS the one people call Etiole… but his D.I.D. means he things Etiole is someone else, he doesn’t believe its him, because none of his personalities have any memory of each other.
Ben is a total nightmare to live with because I never know from one day to the next, who the hell he is going to be that day.
Ben has denied every pregnancy. Why? His exact words are: “I wouldn’t. I am a High Priest. What would the Bishop think?”
According to the FBI too, Ben, behind my back, runs around from one LDS/Mormon congregation to the next tell people that I am quote: “An unrhightious, unfaithful aunty-Mormon who puts the church down.”
Interestingly, I have been a member of the Mormon church since 1975. Ben joined in the 1980s. Ben left the church in 2015. I am still a member.
My FATHER is an extremist anti-Mormon, who preaches hatred for the Mormon church. Not me. Kenny, my father, is the anti-Mormon. My father, is such a huge radical extremist anti-Mormon that he has gone on to convince my mother, a 5th generation Mormon who is related to one of Smith’s poly-wives, to leave the church. She left the Mormon church in 1994 and joined up with some anti-Mormon group lead by some woman named Tanner or something. My mother, took her anti-Mormonis to extremes far above and beyond my father, taking to FaceBook and a forum called exMormon something and went total psycho nutjob anti-Mormon conspiracy theory all over the internet through the late 1990s into the 200s and still does it to this day now in 2023, preaching her wild anti-Mormon conspiracy theories now 27 years. In 3 years it’ll be her 30th anniversary of her wild mega hyper anti-Mormon rampage, with my father cheering her on and needling her forward the whole way in a weird Bonnie and clyde style vendetta attack everyone who is a Mormon hate fueled bigotry.
I on the other hand, am still a Mormon, have never had anything to do with the anti-Mormon movement, and, was shocked to learn from the FBI, that, the anti-Mormon rumors about me online are massive, and spread largely by members of the Saco and Sanfard Wards, with their info being just misinformation they regurgitate after talking to Ben, my mother, or my father.
Apparently, because I am bedridden and crippled, since 2013, and thus have had no way to get to church these past nine years, this, my absence in church meetings, after 48 years of never once missing a meeting, has allowed my mother, my father, and Benn to be able to spread wild anti-Mormon rumors about me, with the 3 of them going to my church, the Sandford Ward, and telling the church leaders that I’m not in church because I’ve turned anti-Mormon.
And yet, it is Ben who is the biggest anti-Mormon of all… he’s actual friends with that Tanner woman. My parents only run around preaching the Tanner woman’s message, Ben, actually sought her out and became personal friends with her and helps the Tanner woman one on one…. And he brags about this all the time.
I’m sick of hearing all the anti-Mormon Tanner woman bullcrap from Ben and my father and my mother so, whenever any of the three of them start chiding me for being a Mormon and telling me how evil and deceived I am because I refuse to leave the Mormon church, I just put my headphones on and listen to Markiplier YouTube videos and, ignore them.
I don’t hate the Mormon church like Ben, my mother, and my father do, so I am fed up with them constantly bitching at me because I’m a Mormon. Which is why I’ve not spoken to my father in 3 years even though we live in the same apartment, and was a contributing factor to why I blocked my mother on FaceBook in 203 and have had no contact with her at all offline since… though that hasn’t stopped her from showing up, trespassing, and hounding me.
Ben, is far worse then my mother or my father combined… since 2015, he has hand written thousands of anti-Mormon letters to every church leader he can find, local, not local, all the heads in Utah… and he bought a dozen cases, each case with 144 books in it, cases of Ket Kerr’s books and daily mails them out to every member on every rouster list of every ward in the Exiter and Augusta stakes, using his position as High Priest Quorum leader to get the home addresses of every Mormon in Southern Maine and New Hampshire, mailing all of them aunty-Mormon letters and copies of Kat Kerr’s books. Ben, as you know, has more money then he knows what to do with, and right now, he’s spreading thousands of dollars every day, just on the postage stamps to mail Kat Kerr’s books and his anti-Mormon letters to every local Mormon he can find.
And so, I knew he was mailing out the Kat Kerr books… but, until FBI agent Andy Drewer told me, I did not know that Ben and my mother and my father, having been putting MY NAME of the letters they are mailing out to people, and the three of them, through impersonating me, have got my church, the Sanford Ward, and it’s sister church, the Saco Ward, 100% convinced that I stopped attending church because I’mm now an anti-Mormon who hates the church, and that’s why my church, the Sanford Ward, and it’s sister church, the Saco Ward, are both unaware that I have NOT left the church, but rather I’m bedridden and crippled and have no one to help me get to church.
And so, now I’m finding out, that Ben, my mother, and my father, working together, according to the FBI, seem to be the fuel that is, and has been for several years, the fuel working locals up into a frenzy… including, they are the ones who are getting the Atwaters riled up, my being an Atwater, and the Atwaters further fueling locals on top of what Ben, my mother, and my father are doing.
What is their motive?
I ask them.
My father says he’s doing it to impress my mother so she’ll remarry him.
My mother says she’s doing it because I need to sell my land and give her the money so she can buy a house in Kennebunk.
Ben says he’s doing it because Mormons are led astray by Satan and he has to save my soul from Hell.
I’m so sick of all of them.
You know, one of the things I find most weird about the Atwaters is that so many of them seem to think I know them, even though I have never met them, nor even know any of their names.
Of the original twelve, I have only ever met five of them. And while I know Danny, I don’t even know the names of his siblings. I met Angelia once when she was twelve, at a Halloween party at the Cape Elizabeth Ward LDS Church, and then I saw her for about 2 minutes before she left. And Danny I only met when I was 37 years old and I only saw him about 10 times, back when my mother was trying to scam him out of his money from being hit by a train… which I didn’t know that was why she was visiting him, until a few years later when she had a big rant about how she wouldn’t visit him any more because he was, in her words “stingy and greedy” because he refused to give her the money to “use as a downpayment for a house in Kennebunk”. I should have known that was why she was visiting him, as that’s the only reason she ever does anything. She’s obsessed with trying to by that $3.7million mansion by the Wedding Cake House, and has been trying to scam relatives out of money for a downpayment on it for decades now… it was her reason for her involvement in the backhoe that her brother Joey hired to drive over my house. She and Joey figured I’d sell my land if there was no house on it. They didn’t exect me to set up a lean to made out of a 8x6 tarp and just spend the next 9 years living under that.
I met Doris once when she was squatting illegally on my land back in 1996. Took me and the Old Orchard Beach Police 9 months to get them out. I only ever saw her one day. She had 4 military tents, the size houses, 2 Winobegos and a Cadillac, that they illegally dumped on top of my corn crops, along with more then 600 bicycles, and 2 school buses full of sawed up copper pipes. Took us 9 months to find out who in the hell was living there and dumping that garbage on m land, and it turned out it was Doris. Only time I ever saw her, was one day, for about 15 minutes.
I remember Micheal, Tonya, and Scotty from before the caged years, but, I was put in the cage hen I was 8 years old, so I’ve not seen then since I was 8.
Once every year, usually on September 19th, David and Lucy would show up with a herd of incredibly violent gun toting vandals who would go through our farm and use shovels to chop the heads off all our pet cats, dogs, hens, ducks, and roosters. They were kill 200 to 500 of our pets every year in this anuel bloodbath on my farm. I don’t know who the hoodlums were. David said they were his kids, but he also said he had 15 kids and there were WAY more then 15 people involved in the annual Sptember 19 boodbaths… way more, closer to 100. Brucie said once that it was not JUST Davivd’s kids, but also a group known as The Halls. I don’t know who any of them were, but the police showed up every time, trying to get them out, and they always had huge shootouts with the police every year. It’s why I have a massive phobia of guns. A bunch of them were arrested in 1982, when that time the state police drg team showed up and arrested them and confincasted meth, marhawana, opium, and LSD
I know Dickie, Brucie, David, and Barbara because they were the ones that helped my mother build that room, that they locked me in when I was 8 years old, right after my Grammy Hellen Ricker’s funeral. They kept me in there for 27 years. One of the 4 of them would show up every 12 days to throw rotted molded food in the cracks between the boards. They are the only 4 Atwaters I know, and I only know them from their weekly coming into the room to beat me up, torture me. They are the five who raised me and said I was not Human, said I was a Demon and that I wasn’t allowed out of that room because Demons weren’t allowed to have contact with Humans.
I was 12 years old when the High Priest found out about that room, and he took me out every Sunday to go to church, and then took me back to that room after.
No one ever told me I was a Human and was allowed to go outside or talk to Humans until the social workers showed up when I was 31 years old. They are the ones who started using the term “feral child” to describe me and they to this day are still trying to “integrate me into Human culture” but two of them say they have given up on trying to convince me I am Human, they say there is little chance of my mind ever fully grasping the concept of being human because it’s too difficult to undo the three decades of Brucie, David, Dickie, Barbara, and my mother doing their “child social experiment” (as the social workers call it) to raise me to believe I was not human. They said the bigger problem is the fact that almost immediately after I was rescued out of that room/cage they kept me locked in for 27 years, the 2006 bomb blew up my house, which the FBI says it was Barbara’s husband Paul Martel who did that, but I don’t know why, as I never met him or even knew about him prior to the FBI arresting him, and the backhoe arrived to drive over my house 5 different times over the next 10 years, same back hoe, same yard, different house each time, as I kept rebuilding houses. Then I found that headless girl in the marsh with all the headless dogs and the FBI thinks one of the Atwaters did it seeing how the headless dogs were lined up in a row from my land to the march, each dog about 500 feet apart (for some reason the Saco and Sanford ward church members forget my land in Old Orchard abuts the Scarborough Marsh and is right on the edge of OOB bordering Pine Point in Scarborough. And that the dead girl in the Scarborough marsh was literally only a few hundred feet away from my driveway… they keep asking why I am obsessed with the Oulette Case, but they forget I’m the one who found the dead girl in the Marsh and that she was set up in a friging ritual pose, practically on my front lawn AND the FBI thinks the whole thing was done in some weird attempt by the Atwaters to frame me, so that I would go to prison for murder and they culd take my land… which it’s always my land and the Atwater obsession with taking it that is at the core of everything)
But in any case, the social workers say that because these events were my very first interactions with Humans, that it instilled in me an psychosis effect of further belief in not being human because I had trouble accepting the fact that I am the same type of creature as the monsters humans are, because, yeah, all I’ve ever seen from humans is death, bloodshed, violence and distruction. I have no reason to WANT to be integrated into a society that leaves headless dogs and headless girls in my front yard.
But then 2013, came along…. Social workers got me into college in 2010, in an attempt to show me that ONLY the Atwaters were shitty bloodthirsty bastards and that MOST humans don’t drop dead headless animals all over their houses and yards the way the Atwares do. And they were right. Humans in college were nothing like the Atwaters and their drug dealing, petty thieve, ganster thugs. The social workers and police keep telling me that this sort of behavior is not normal and that it is ONLY something the Atwaters and their friends do, that normal humans don’t act, do, or say the things the Atwaters do.
But then, I’m constantly running into people who make the claim to “know all about” me and they will spout off this weird freaked out stuff about witchcraft and curses and spelcasting and aliens and ufos and, I’m left totally clueless because I don’t know a single thing at all about witchcraft or curses or spellcasting or aliens or ufo, and I can’t figure out why these people think I have the faintest idea what the fuck they are even talking about.
They’ll say they thought I was some expert in casting curses and say they want to hire me to cast curses on people, and they act like spell casting is some sort of job I do. I don’t know heads or tails about spell casting.
They’ll say, “But your the sea witch of Old Orchard Beach”... yeah, people have been calling me that ever since Stephen King filmed Thinner on my land back in the early 1990s, but, I’ve never read a Stephen King book or seen a Stephen King movie, not even Thinner, so, I haven’t got a clue what is in his books and movies. All I know is he based some “Gypsy witch” in Thinner off me, because I’m the “Queen” (aka Priestess) of a local Gypsy clan. A Gypsy Queen is similar to a Catholic Nun in the Folk Catholicism of Mexico and has nothing to do with witches, witchcraft, spells, or curses, so I don’t know what the fuck Stephen King did in the Thinner movie to make people think I’m some kind of spell casting witch, but, people seem to have trouble understanding that the Thinner movie is FICTIONAL. I’m not a witch and I don’t know the first thing about witches or witchcraft. I haven’t got a clue how to cast spells or curses. And I can’t figure out why so many total random strangers think they can walk up to me at WalMart or Rotary Park or the library and demand I cast some curse on someone for them.
But, when these people do this, and it happens EVERY SINGLE TIME I go outside, which I have agoraphobia, so it’s sometimes weeks or months between my setting foot outside, every single time I go out, some one always identifies me as a witch and watches a curse cast.
At the same time I’ve got these UFO nuts constantly coming up to me asking me this or that about some weird ass alien ufo idea, and I never have a clue what they are talking about, They use all sorts of weird ass words and phrases that I’ve never heard before and gibber on like another language which I can’t understand… but then they act all surprised that I don’t know the meanings of the words they are using, and they’ll say: “But I thought you were supposed to be a top expert on UFOs and alien abductions” and I’m like what the hell are they even talking about and how the hell would anyone in their right mind come to think that I would believe in ufos or aliens, when I think people who believe in ufos and aliens are raving lunatics, my uncle Brucie being a perfect example of a raving lunatic who believes in aliens and ufos.
I don’t get it.
But then, every time this happened, and it just happened again today, because, as you know I’ve not received any mail since May 2022 and I went to the post office yet again today to once again ask where the hell is my mail… and low and behold, I can’t set foot outside without some alien believing, curse believing freak ass weirdo nutjob showing up to ask me to put a curse on someone while gibbering about ufos.
I ask him, where the hell did he get the ludacris idea that I was a witch, that I cast curses, or that I believed in aliens, nd he said: “Well, your mother says on FaceBook…” yeah, my mother is a freaking nut, which is why I’ve had nothing to do with her in decades. She’s a white power freak who runs around calling black people the n-word, is part of the anti-vaccer micro-chip in vaccines conpreracy theory, wouldn’t let me or my brothers go to school because in her words “the government controls the schools, and satan controls the government”, SHE spends 90% of her time running around putting curses on people, all she does is talk about whores and demons, demons and whores, every other word out of her mouth is either demon or whore. And the only time she ever shows up its because she’s trying to pul yet another lame ass scam to try to steal my land because she hated my grandmother and says it’s her life duty to destroy everything that”ever bolgned to that old bitch of a whore” including the farm I inherted from gramy Helen. My mother is spiteful, violent, vindictive, and has a police record for running around beating people in the face with bricks. On top of all of that she’s chronic liar and I’ve never heard a truthful word come out of her mouth.
I am well aware that my mother is the source of 90% of the problem, simply because she’s the biggest fucking gossip in Southern Maine, after he sister Barbara, and the two of them are rather famous all over Maine for thei trouble they have caused HUNDREDS of families. They are petty Karens who devote every minute of their lives to making up vicsious rumors and lies about every person they see, both people they know and people they don’t know.
And thanks to the FBI investigation into the murder of my on, I’ve found out a LOT about both my mother and Barbara and the bizarre, outlandish extremes they each have gone to in their petty vindictivness.
But the fact remains, I’ve not had contact with either of those bitches in several decades, precisely because I am sick and tired of their endless hate for everything and everyone around them. They both do nothing but gossip and lie, lie and gossip, and run around like a couple of teenage brats making a game out of seeing who they can hurt next … they fucking brag about it and spend hours laughing over how fun it is to destroy families.
It doesn’t take any level of intelligence to see that the dynamic trio (Barbara, Brucie, and my mother) are the source of every damn rumor about everyone in York County, Maine.
It’s such a big problem that I’ve had people come to my apartment and ask me if I could ask my mother and her siblings to leave their family alone. The fucking Biddeford Police have stopped by my apartment to ask me if I could do anything about my mother, that’s how I found out it was HER who knows Todd Murphey, because the police came right out and told me that my mother has been harassing Todd Murphey’s ex-wife and 15 year old son on their FaceBook accounts and wanted to know if I could ask her to stop.
No. I can’t. And you know why? Because when I asked her to stop spreading witchcraft and curse casting rumors about me, she arrived the next day and cut my car in half! The 1964 Dodge 330… she said it had a demon in it and she had to kill the demon by killing the car. What the fuck? She’s fucking insane!
And worse… half the time, these people will tell me some name I never heard of. Say this or that person told them I was a witch who cast curses or was some alien expert, and I’ll ask them who the hell is that, and they’ll say: “Oh that’s one of Brucie’s kids” or “David’s kids” or a grandkid… and I’ll point ou that I’ve NEVER EVEN MET Brucie's kids or Davids kids or ANY of the rest of the Atwares.
There are more then four hundred Atwaters, and I’ve meet EXACTLY SEVEN of them in my life time. I don’t even know the names of all the original twelve, let alone the names of their kids or grandkids… why would I? Most of them live in Utah and I’ve not set foot outside of Maine for nearly SIXTY YEARS!
I’ve never in my entire life even talked with an Atwter, not face to face off line, not online.
Because I’ve never even seen pictures of any of the Atwaters, I wouldn’t even know an Atwater if I saw one!
And yet, they run around spouting off things I supposedly said or did, and make the claim I’ve talked to them… and I’m just left wondering who the fuck is running around talking to the Atwaters while pretending to be me, because I don’t even know who the Atwaters are!
Clearly, there is someone out there pretending to be me and the Atwaters think they are talking to me, but they are NOT talking to me, I’m not talking to them, and I want to know in the the fuck is running around pretending to be me?
Its so damned fucking obvious the Atwaters don’t know one iota about me, just by the level of the ludicrous witchcraft, curse, alien, and ufo lies they spread around about me!
I should be able to go to my post office, go shopping, heck just walk down my driveway to get my mail, without being bombarded with stupid ass freaks gibbering about witches, curses, demons, aliens, and ufos! I am so damned sick of my mother and her fucking Atwater relatives…
You know, another thing that’s fucked up about all this and again is my mother running around lying her ass off to hell and back, yet again… is this whole situation with HER cats.
The attack on my family, happened the same day as the whole thing with her cats, and she is so obsessed with the cats, that she has gone out of her way to run around telling people that when I talk about April 10, 2025, I’m talking about HER cats… but, in order to further promote that lie, she also tells people they were MY cats! What the fuck?
You know that Nick guy my mother sleeps around with? The one she broke up his marriage, convinced him to leave his wife and kids down in Mass and move up here to Maine, because she was scamming him… the guy she stole his credit card and went and bought that shed she put on my land, and bought those $2k dogs with, and bought those appliances with, and bought that tractor with, before that Nick guy found out she stole his credit cards? Him.
Did you know, she convinced him that she owned MY land in Old Orchard Beach, and she tried to get him to join her scam, and pretend he was a real estate agent, and my mother and her pimp Nick tried to sell my land last year… and this is not the first time she’s done this.
Did you know, that in 2007, she went to the town hall, pretending to be me, had them divide my land into sections, and then sold one section? That’s why Don Cooliard and his sister have a house in my driveway now… something they built in 2019… and it was when they built the house in 2019, that was when I found out my shit face mother and her jackass whore master Nick, sliced off a peice of my land in 2007 and sold it!
I had no idea they had done it!
That’s the kind of shit faced scum bag scam artist my mother and her fuck buddy Nick are!
But it gets worse.
My mother had 83 cats… eighty three cats.
And she was hiding 113 of them in an apartment owned by this Nick scammer. He found out she had cats in her apartment… guess what day… April 14, 2015. The day before the attack on my farm.
Here’s a thing… did you know there were no locks on the doors of my motorhome? Not one. I bought it February 21, 2012, and first thing I did was took all the locks off, because I have a PTSD phobia of locks, after my mother kept me locked in the room cage thing for 27 years.
And yet… when the vandals showed up with a Blow Brothers sewage truck to fill my motorhome with 500 gallon of raw feces, they had to pry a padlock off the door to get inside. A padlock, that I did not put there.
Do you know how that padlock got there? My mother put it there the night before, when she took HER thirteen cats, and shoved them in my motorhome, without telling me she was doing it… because she had to hide them from Nick.
People often ask, why, I a professional artist whom has had displayed at the Portland Museum of art… don't paint anymore.
It’s because paint supplied are expensive, and 500 gallons of raw human feces not only did $10k in damages to my bedroom, it also destroyed $30k in art materials.
But it gets worse… my mother was two timing Nick with both my father Kenny and her other ex husband Wayne… and on top of that, she was mad at Wayne, so, it turns out, that 7 of those cats were HIS cats, and she had stolen them from HIM…. so not only was she hiding thirteen cats from Nick, but seven of those cats were stolen cats besides!
She put the cats in my motorhome, them, because she is fueding with ALL her whore master fuck buddy men, one of them, the FBI hasn’t figured out which one yet, filled my motorhome with feces out of a Blow Brother’s sewage truck (my cousin Ken Blow is my neighbour, they stole one of his trucks to do it) , and then called the police and told them that the motorhome was HERS, because my mother had been running around telling everybody it was hers, she these guys thought they were pumping sewage into my mother’s bedroom and didn’t know they were pumping sewage into my bedroom.
But, because they DID know that she had put the cats in there, and they were made at both her and Wayne, they thought if they called the police, the police would arrest her and Wayne…
,...however, the gays haters of the local Mormon churches ALSO showed up that same morning, a completely separate incident from the cats, to attack my family, because, earlier that year, I had published a gay Romance novel, called Night of the Screaming Unicorn, and these gay hating church freaks, decided murdering my family was punishment for me publishing a Gay Romance novel.
A fucking five towns worth of police, including a SWAT team showed up… the white robed klan pretenders fled, thep police found the cats, I was left asking “What cats? What are you even talking about?” Later an officer asked me if I knew the cats, and I said, “Yeah, these ones belong to my step father Wayne up in Biddeford and those ones belong to my on the other side of Bideford, how the hell did they get in my motorhome?”
And the court cases people talk about… there where SEVEN different court cases going on all at once, including the Guy Gamon murder trail because he murdered my dog walker who walked my dog when I was sick, which was the big case, that uncovered he was a serial rapist, and went on for several years and included a jury trial.
The murder trail of my family was also going on. Different court case.
And then, my MOTHER had a court case going on with police over the cats, which, in the middle of that, she spun it around, started telling people the cats were mine, and the next thing I knew, there were TWO MORE court cases slapped on me, that I knew nothing about… both an extension of the cat case my mother had going on, because 2 weeks into HER court case about HER cats that SHE hid from Nick in MY motorhome, she had Nick convince the police to switch the case out of her name into my name, because she had convinced Nick that the cats were mine! So all of a sudden, I get this weird court case about HER cats slapped on me, on top of the three murder cases and rape case, that were already going on.
The cat court case lasted less then an hour before the judge threw it out of court, telling some Dan guy that if he ever tried to pull a stunt like this again (apparently he worked for the Old Orchard Beach town hall and had pulled scam court cases to frame disabled women before, because the judge told the Dan guy that this was the 64th bogus case he had done to try to steal land from disabled women in OOB)...... but… the judge was asking me about the cats, and I keep telling him, I don’t know anything about the cats because they were not my cats, they were my mother’s cats, and I still had no clue how they had even gotten in my motorhome in Old Orchard Beach, 14 miles away from Nick’s apartment in Biddeford where they had been for several years before that. Finally the judge asked if someone could get my mother to the court house, and surprisingly she showed up… with Nick of all people… and she boo-hooed to the court about the cats being mine, and my being homeless and living under a tarp (I was still living under the tarp in 2015, but not at the time of the attack… I had just moved in with my dad in Biddeford March 31, 2015 due to I have just come out of intensive surgery and the doctor wanted me to not be sleeping outdoors for the next 6 months because I had intensive amounts of surgery to heal from, so I wasn’t in Old Orchard the day my mother put HER cats in my motorhome and that’s why I had no clue the cats were in there).
Well, the judge got mad at my mother, because it was blatantly obvious to him that the cats were hers, because she was using all the cats’ names, while I didn’t know the cats’ names, and she was describing what they looked like and what breeds and ages they were, while I didn’t know what half the cats looked like, Three of the cats I had never even seen before, and I didn’t know their names. I didn’t know how many cats there were!
The judge outright told my mother to her face that she ought to be ashamed of what she did, framing me and pretending the cats were mine, and he sent the cats to the West Kennebunk Animal Shelter, something we knew right there in the court room, but in order to get pity, and money (my mother started a fund raiser on one of those kickstarter type places) saying she needed to raise money to locate the cats. What the fuck? We knew where the cats were. They were at the West Kennebunk Animal Shelter… she even went there to try to get them back… asked me to drive her there in my car, took Wayne with her because the cats were technically HIS cats that she stole from him… I have the whole thing on video camera, it was livestreamed… she had a big fucking fight with the people at the shelter and they told her they’s arrest her if she ever tried to get near their shelter again.
After that, she built up this weird ass conspiracy that the cats were sent to lots of shelters and foster care… which they probably were., I don’t know… and she went from one animal shelter to the next harassing them.
Meanwhile, her friend Joel Baily hacks my Twitter account and uses it to harass, yet another of my mother’s whore master men that she sluts around with trying to get money out of… some guy named Mark, who I never heard of before, but apparently, he’s been friends with my mother AND my father for some forty odd years, even though I myself had never seen or heard of him before. And yes, the same Joel Bailey from the Saco Ward and Old Orchard Beach town hall who went to prison for hacking the Old Orchard Beach Town Hall bank account and transferring $30MILLION in OOB tax money to members of the Saco Ward church… who it turns out, most of them were the anti-gay attackers in my yard April 10, 2015, which is why 24 members of that church went to prison between 2016 and 2021.
So, I’m still unable to do anything because, you know, still recovering from major spine surgery, because of the golf club attack that murdered my son in 2013, three years earlier, I didn;t have surgery until 2015 and 2016., because of the fucking red tape the USA medical system runs on… here I am, not online at all since November 14, 2013, so I have not yet told anyone about any of the April 10, 2015, and come January 2016, all of a sudden, there’s the Mark guy who crawls out of the woodwork, with yet another court case, this one claiming I was saying stuff on Twittrer about him… and yet, I had never heard of this guy before AND I hadn’t been online since November 14, 2013, so what the fuck? Who the hell is hacking my Twitter account pretending to be me, while harassing this guy I never even heard of before. But by this point FBI Agent Andy Drwer had taken over the whole case, and by June 2016, he found out, yeah,:” it’s your mother’s friends from the Saco Ward church. She’s convinced them the cats were yours and that you need to be punished for animal abuse, that you didn’t even do, by hacking your accounts and framing you” Great. So yet again, my mother and her cat obsession and her Atwater friends, and her Saco ward friends, and her fcck buddies are at the core of all of this, with them once again, putting my name on something I fucking had no part of and didn’t even know anything about! What the fuck!
This court case was ALL livestreamed, you can go watch it on YouTube. The Cat Court case was also live streamed. You can watch that on YouTube too. The murder court cases and the rape court cases, also livestreamed. You can watch them on YouTube too. And then on top of that, was the Too Gay For Old Orchard Beach Court case with the Old Orchard Bach Town Hall… also livestreamed, you can watch that on YouTube as well.
My mother, Nick. all these Saco Ward church people, the Dan guy, the Mark guy, the Gene guy… they are ALL on livestream… the judges, the police officers, the witnesses, the DA, even the FBI agents… all recorded, all livestreamed on Twich, all archived on YouTube, all SEVEN court cases, every day of every trial. You can go watch them all yoursel and see the truth, instead of listening to siller gossip and rumors started by my mother and her Nick buddy trying to cover their asses for trying to steal my land YET AGAIN, via the cats.
But have you ever noticed it is ONLY my mother and Nick talking about the cats in connection to April 10, 2015… do you notice how I never talk about the cats, because… oh look… they were NOT my cats, they were my MOTHER’S cats and that’s why SHE is talking about them?
Did you also notice how, in order to make people believe the cats were mine, that both my mother and Nick, are going out of their way to try to erase the existence of my family that was murdered that same day?
Did you notice how in order to push THEIR cat agenda, my mother and Nick are are doing a major gaslighting move to try to make everyone FORGET what happened two years earlier on November 14, 2013, the day my son was murdered and my spine was broken?
Did you notice how my mother and Nick are trying to use THEIR cats as a slight of hand move, so people wouldn’t see that they DID steal and sell part of my land to Don Colliard in 2007 nd that they tried to sell another section of my land in March 2015… yes, yet another court case which was going on, BEFORE the cats happened, and that the FBI believes my mother and Nick pulled the cat stunt deliberately to try to make people look the other way and forget that she and Nick tried to steal my land only 2 weeks prior to the cat event? Or that she and Nick tried for a THIRD time to steal and sell my land April 2022…
Know the truth.
Those cats were not mine, they never were, and I’m sick and tired of the jack ass fucking animal abuse rumors and lies my mother and Nick are spreading about me… lies that they are spreading ONLY to try to cover up the fact that they were trying to steal my land, to sell my land, so my mother could by some fucking mansion in Kennebunk.
Well guess what… my son is buried on my land, He’s been buried there since November 2013, and it doesn’t matter that there is no house on my land, because my son’s there and I’m never selling it. And my mother and he Nick and Saco Ward and Atwater friends are bunch of fucking scum bags who don’t give a shit about anything but the damned fucking money they think they can get out of my land.
So, we have confirmation that yes, our mail IS being stolen from 146 Portland Ave. As you already know, we have not received mail since May 2022 and it is now March 2023, it's nearly a year. Post office has just been saying "we are short drivers" and has not looked into it... so we went over the heads of the local Old Orchard Beach post office and went to the distribution center, and told the state post master what was going on, they got in touch with our delivery driver, and he has delivered our mail every day, all year, and is baffled because the post office had not alerted him that we were not getting our mail. So, YES, if you live on Portland Ave, in Old Orchard Beach, and have not been receiving mail, and I know most of my neighbors are saying they've not gotten mail in weeks to months, as well, go to the Saco distribution center in the industrial park, and complain there, because tour driver IS delivering daily and has not been missing delivers... all missing mail from Portland Ave is stolen and you need to let them know what mail you have not received to they can get to the bottom of finding who is doing it.
So, while I was at the post office today, seeing how the post office is on the Cascade Road, out here in the Old Orchard Beach section of the Scarbourgh Marsh... I decided to check the family cross, see if the name Todd had been added, seeing how the vandals and shitard harassers can't stop gibbering Todd Murphey this and Todd Murphey that in my driveway, and nope... here it is, https://www.eelkat.com/images/cross.jpg as you can see the only two names are my cousin Timmy Murphy and my uncle Gordon Murphy. No Todd.
You know, I would recommend these shittards take their heads out of their asses, and drive through all the roads of the Scarbourough Marsh. Why?
This cross is one of the more then a hundred crosses in the marsh, which marks the locations of the one hundred and twenty people whom have been beheaded in a four mile radius since June 2001. This cross stand at the Ross Road x Cascade Rd intersection. The Cascade Road, as everyone who watches the local news is aware, is where bulk of the serial killer's attacks have occurred, which is why local news reporters have dubbed the entire case as "The Cascade Murders", officially know to law enforcement as "The Oulette Case".
If you start driving through all the side streets of the Scarbourgh Marsh, you will find there are 120 - one hundred and twenty - of these crosses, some with 5 or more names on them, each marking the location where the the person dubbed by locals as "The Portland Ave serial killer" has murdered 120+ people between June 2001 and February 2021.
For some odd reason, the Sanford Ward LDS church, a church only a 30 minute drive awa from the Scarborough Marsh, is so clueless about the local biome, that they seem to think the ONLY place the Scarborough Marsh exists is across the street from the church owned candy store Len Libby's Chocolates.
Do you recall how people like to dub my land "Etiole's Swamp"... do you know why they do that? Because my land is a literal swamp. It's a peat bog, with more sinking quicksand and 6 foot tall marsh grass, then solid ground. I live IN the Scarbough Marsh, as does EVERYONE on Portland Ave, Ross Road, Pine Point Road, Cascade Road, Walnut Street, East Grand Ave, West Grand Ave, Milliken Mills Rd, and more then 200 - two hundred - other streets in Old Orchard Beach, all of which are located inside the Scarborough Marsh.
The Marsh is not JUST in Scarborough, nor is it just that one quart mile stretch of road across from Len Libby's. The Marsh sits in two countries and five towns, and covers several thousand acres of land... and the Scarborough WalMart and the South Portland Main Mall, both site in the marsh, with both of those mega buildings building on a massive system of concrete pilings to keep them from sinking into the many acres of peat bog that site under each of those buildings.
But do take a drive on the above listed streets in Old Orchard, as well as the following ones in Pine Point: Pine Point Rd, Blue Point Rd, Black Point Rd, Dunstan Corner, Portland Rd aka Rt 1, Payne Rd, and all the little side streets off of each one. In Saco head to Heath St, Jenkins Rd, Flag Pond Rd (stop and see the very real pet cemetery where Stephen King's The Pet Cemetery movie was filmed while you are there), and all their side streets, yes those are in the Scarbourogh Marsh as well... and instead of just blindly driving through the Marsh on your way to work, slow down and start counting the crosses... big white crosses, little white crosses, unpainted wooden crosses, reflector covered orange crosses... see if you can find all one hundred and twenty crosses in the Scarbourogh Marsh... they sit in 5 towns, in 2 counties... and every one of them marks the location of someone who was beheaded by a still uncaught, still actively killing people, serial killer who has plagued the streets in the Portland Ave region of the Scarbough Marsh since June 2001.
But as you can see, it's Timmy Murphy who was beheaded on the Cascade Rd... not Todd Murphy... there's it's cross which has stood there since June 2013.
You know, if these harassers spent more time paying attention to what is going on around them, and less time being self absorbed jerks... they'd know these crosses were here... they'd know, Old Orchard Beach has a serial killer on the lose who has beheaded more then 120 people and left their bodies at cross road intersections all over the marsh... they'd know that this has been going on for 18 years now, and they'd know that my family had been hit by this madman multiple times now, fist killing my cousin Timmy Murphy, then killing my baby and leaving me not only crippled, but also one of only 5 people to live through and survive one of this serial killer's attacks, thus WHY the FBI is so hyper focused on not letting me out of their sight because this killer has a history of not leaving people alive... they'd know that SEVENTEEN families all within a quarter mile section of Portland Ave, between Walnut St and Milekin Miles Rd, 17 families in this space of street, have not only have their families murdered, but their houses bulldozed by a backhoe, and in just those 17 families, in addiction to the dead people, there are also more then FIVE HUNDRED dead pets, including cats, dogs, birds, and horses, every one of which was beheaded and the headless pet hung from rope nooses and draped in trees and porches of the 17 families... something the FBI says is a scene from a Stephen King book, which the serial killer likes to recreate... and then the FBI points out this: each of those 17 families has appeared in The Thinner movie... it's the one common thread for ALL 120+ Scarbourough Marsh killings: every sing victim has somehow been involved in the filming on one of the 14 Stephen King movies which was filmed in Saco, Old Orchard Beach, and Scarboughor back in the 1980s. According to the FBI, EVERY SINGLE ONE of these murders, animal killings, harassments, vandalisms, and hate crimes, can be found in a Stephen King book and this lunatic is recreating "art" in tribute to Stephen King, using the bodies of family members who were involved in the filming of Stephen King's oldest movies.
If these people in the Sanford Ward church would take their heads out of Joesph Smith's ass long enough to look around, they would have known these things were going on, that they were going on to people in their congregation, that several members of their congregation have stopped attended church because they were murdered, that several other members of their congregation no longer attend because like me they are crippled and bed ridden from these attacks, and that 24 members of their congregation no longer attend church because they are in prison for their connections and involvements in these murders.
Heck, these murders have been all over the TV and paper news for 18 years now... you'd think the people of the Saco and Sanford Ward LDS churches - who are the ones in my driveway bitch screaming about Todd Murphey for the past 2 years now - would at least have seen enough TV news or newspaper news... oh look, did you know one of the big name newscasters on TV, someone who has in fact covered the Scarbough Marsh case on TV several times now, is a member of the Sanfard Ward congregation, and even SHE knows what's going on, obviously because she's one of the reporters who keeps showing up to interview all us families who live in in the Scarborough Marsh... so I know not everyone in the Sandford Ward is clueless as to what has been going on in the community round them.... several of these church members are outright screaming, literally screaming from my neighbor's front porch in Biddeford, that they never heard of any of this before... I'm sorry... what the fuck?
The Scarbourough Marsh murders is quite literally the biggest unsolved murder case in all of New England, not just Maine, it's been covered by DateLine, 20/20 and half the crime network tv shows! The fucking planet has heard of it! These people are telling me, literally, while standing on my neighbors front porch and shrieking at the tops of their lungs, that they never heard of this murder case, a murder case I've not stopped talking about for the last 9 years because as of 9 years ago now members of my family have been murdered.. heck, with so many deaths now, it's pretty hard to find any family in the Scarbourough Marsh who DOESN'T have a dead relative killed by this nutjob... and these people, who vandalized our apartment building so bad that the landlord has a repair crew here all of this next upcoming summer... these vandals and hate fueled harassers from the Sandford Ward church, are telling me, that they had no clue any of this was going on?
And worse... y Atwater relatives... they keep showing up and ALSO saying they never heard of this... really? How? I know the FBI has been talking to them about it because they keep showing up in a rage yelling that the FBI was just at their house and it's all my fault and demanding I stop sending the FBI to their house... but I didn't send the FBI to their house, heck, I didn't even know they were related to me, as I never heard of them before they showed up to yell at me, so how the hell do they think I sent the FBI over there? What the fuck?
But also... what the fuck? Family members have been murdered and as far as I know, the FBI is trying to locate every relative to find out if they might have any information about a member of their family being murdered... I mean, if these people really are relatives, like they scream that they are when they are in my yard yelling at me, then, someone in my family being murdered IS ALSO someone in THEIR family being murdered.... and yeah, of course the law enforcement is going to go to every family member and ask for info, that's what law enforcement does, because, they just naturally assume that normal families help each other and WANT to solv a murder that happened in their family.
Which is something FBI Agent Andy Drewer pointed out to me, he said: "The Atware relatives of yours... they're pretty paranoid aren't they? I'm having trouble getting any of them to talk to me. Most slam the door in my face the minute I say I'm with the FBI. They act like they got something to hide. Looks mighty suspicious. Can you think of any reason why any of your uncles might want you dead?" That was the same day he pointed out that his five top suspects for the November 14, 2013 attack were my uncle Bruce, my aunt Barbara, my mother, my father, and Ben. He said he can prove they all knew about the golf club attack, and yet everyone of them is openingly, publicly denying any knowledge of it, and all five of them are doing their most public outspoken, over the top denying it in two places: The Saco Ward LDS Church and the Sandford Ward LDS Church.
And most disturbing of all is this: He says my father was having an affair with a woman named Claire back in the 1970s, and that my father and my mother and Claire and Claire's husband have been feuding since the late 1970s, a fued which goes on to this day... and... that on ALL of my mother's social media accounts, FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, everything, are two usernames that show up in her friends' lists: both with the same last name, one using the username Claire while posting a 4 door white truck as her user photo, and the other... wait for it... has the user name: KendraSilvermander".
The FBI has found an actual person, a relative, in law of the Atwaters, who goes by the username KendraSilvermander.
Why is this significant?
The people who murdered my son at BugLight Light house art studio at Southern Maine Community College on November 14, 2013, was a blond woman whom the other two called "Claire", a red haired woman who was chanting: "I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine! I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine! I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine! I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine!..." like she was singing a song... both women looked to be in their 60s, and today a decade later, would now be in their mid-70ish, and were with a large bald man, about 30th, today would be about 40ish, and the 3 of them left in a 4 door white pickup truck.
The odd thing is, people don't talk about themselves in 3rd person limited, but, that's what the red haired woman was doing.... and I've seen her before... she showed up at Westbrook Panera 3 different occasions in 2009 and 2010 and in each of those instances also did the same marching goosestep around, back then carrying a white poodle wearing a purple dragon coat... while again saying "I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine!" while also bragging that her father owned Saco FunTownSplashtown USA and having a psychotic meltdown screaming" My chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, my chair, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIR!" Annalese, the woman sitting next to me, another published author, as thi was a NaNoWriMo writer's meeting, who was the NaNoWriMo Ml of Souther Maine, leaned over and whispered to me "That's Kendra Silvermander, she thinks she's he ML, we try to humor her. She can get rather violent if you don't."
Whoever this red haired woman is, she has a server, mega in need of medical care, mental disorder, appears to be incapable of functioning beyond the mental level of a two year old, and is quite proud of repeating her name as fast as an auctioneer. But, she speaks in 3rd person limited about herself, using us and ours and we to refer to herself, and uses the phrase: "I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine!" as though it was a period at the end of every sentence. I don't know what sort of a mental disorder she has, but Annelese was right, this woman gets over the top violent, as we quickly saw at Westbrook Panera in 2009, when she started slamming her dog on the table while chanting "My chair", and then quickly lashed out at me, in a mega violent rage of throwing chairs. The restaurant had to drag her out and make her leave.
She repeated this at three different writer's meetings at the Westbrook Panera in 2009 and 2010.
She is the same woman who was ordering/leading/demanding the blond Claire woman's golf club attack at Southern Maine Community college November 14, 2013, murdering my baby and crippling me.
She returned for a 5th attack June 26, 2016, again with the bond Claire woman, this time at Scarborough WalMart, and this time attacking with a shopping cart, this being the attack that caused the inoperable 3 broken vertebrae and the organ and nerve damage which caused my current crippled stat. In this attack, yet again the red haired woman was chanting: "I'm Kendra Silvermander It's my turn to shine, my turn to shine, my turn to shine!" but this time the blond woman was shrieking: "That's EelKat, she tried to kill my husband. That thing is Ken's son, look at how IT's dressed! Kill or be killed! Remember Saco Shaws! No more heads in ice cream! End the gaypocalypse! Kill the transvestite freak! Too Gay for the Family Friendly Town of Old Orchard Beach!" This time instead of driving away in a 4 door white truck driven by a bald man, this time he two women were alone and drove away in a gold Volvo late 1990s vintage suv station wagon.
The usernames now showing up on my mother's social media, and the Atwater relative's social media is significant, because, according the these FBI agents.... those are the exact same Atwaters who are REFUSING to talk to the FBI, slamming the doors in the FBI agents faces, and also, are the most vocal on social media in spreading the alien/UFO/witchcraft/cat rumors about me. And the FBI believes they not only know who the golf club murderer is, they likely were involved in planning the November 14, 2013 attack... and every one of them has been seen with the Sanford Ward LDS Church members who are likewise the biggest defamatory gossipers, running around slandering my name with their lies about witchcraft/curses/aliens/ufos/and cats.
AND... on top of that... they ae the EXACT SAME Atwaters ans Sandford Ward church members whom have spent the last two years bombarding my Biddeford apartment with these same rumors while the vandalize the building, which the landlord now has to spend the summer repairing.
AND... these are the same people who are also claiming, they had no clue these murders were going on in the Scarborough Marsh.
Overall... these people who are denying the events of the Scarborough Marsh murders, while simaltaniously going overboard gibbering lies about me online, are really working overtime at making themselves look like they were involved in the November 14, 2013 murder of my son, and making themselves look tremendously guilty of not only knowing who the killier is, but trying to cover up for the killer, and attempting to gaslight me with their weird alien rumors, in an attempt to make people not see their connection to the killer, that they are trying so very blatently to hide and are only succeeding and shining a mega sized spotlight of suspision on themselves, leaving everyone who is watching them doing it to ask: What the fuck did they do, that they are trying to hide so damned bad, that they are going mega big time slanderfeat screaming about aliens and ufos all over social media, trying to convince people that I believe in aliens and ufos when there are 40+ years of documented evidance of me debuncking aliens and proving their ufo accusations to a be a hoax they created to cover their own asses over a drug raid from 1982? And now they are rearing up their alien accusations again, which again, I can prove to be a hoax, because... what are they trying to cover up THIS time? Last time they rolled out the alien accusations they were trying to blame literal toddlers for the 1982 drug raid, by saying that 4, 5, and 6 year old children saw aliens... 72 people were arrested in the 1982 drug raid... there were no aliens... if anyone was seeing aliens, it was the drug addicted having drug induced hallucinations... and yet, those same drug dealers, now out of prison, are once again pointing to aliens, this time because they are mad that the FBI showed up to ask if they knew anything about the murder of my son.
Can I ask, what the fuck does not real, fictional aliens they saw because of drugs, during a 1982 drug raid, what does that have to do with my son being murdered?
And are they really that retarded that they think I control the FBI and tell the FBI what to do? What the fuck? Them coming over here and screaming for me to stop sending the FBI to their house, when I didn’t even know these people were relatives, never heard of them before, and wouldn’t even have had a way t tell the FBI a blooming thing about them at all, just makes them look suspicious, because for one thing: who even are these people? I still don’t know who they are! And for another thing, why do they think I sent the FBI over to them? And again: who are they? There are over 400 Atwaters and I’ve only ever met 7 of them, I don’t know the names or faces of any of the others, I don’t even know all the names or faces of the original 12, so I can’t figure out how they’d think I would know the names or faces of any of the kids, grandkids, or great grandkids of the original 12. What the fuck?
How are the Atwaters so full of themselves that they think I would have one iota of a clue anything about them, when I’ve never met them and I don’t even know their names… and also… why would I care? Tell me that? Do you know any sane person who knows the names of their parents in-laws.
Yes… my parents in-laws… in-laws of in-laws… not even blood relatives, but the aunts, uncles, cousins, grandkids, and great grandkids of in laws of my parents’ in laws… who in their right mind would even know the names of such distant relatives…
You, reading this right now… can you name your parent’s cousins? Do you know the names of your mother’s uncle’s great grand kids? Do you?
Can you see how utterly stupidly ridiculous the Atwaters are being, when they show up here yelling and screaming, and expect that I should know who they are or what the fuck they are talking about:
Newsflash: normal people don’t live in 400 person large family herds.
Normal people don’t live in herds.
Normal people don’t swamp in shark style frenzies in the driveways of distant relatives of your great grand pappies 5th removed cousin of an in-law, either. What the actual fuck?
And on top of everything else, there are Awaters running around screaming that I am vandalising some grave… the grave of a distant relative whom I never heard of before, so I don’t even know where the grave is… when I’m here bedridden and crippled and not even capable of going to visit my own son’s grave because… oh look: I’m crippled and stuck in bed with a broken spine and severed spinal cord for the past nine years!
You know… if you are going to accuse someone of going somewhere to vandalize something, you might want to first make sure that person is not wheelchair bound, bedridden, and crippled for a decade with a broken spine, so unable to even get to the place you are accusing them of going!
Also… since the day my son was murdered, I have a camera running 24/7 so, it’s pretty foolish of you to lie about me when I can not only prove you are lying, I can also prove every time you’ve been screaming in my driveway, because I have you on camera. They didn’t think of that did they? Oh no, of course not, why would they? They were too busy thinking about those aliens and witches they can’t stop gibbering about.
But look at this cross... Do you remember Timmy Murphy? He was the 5 year old with curly black hair, who was also accused of aliens during that 1982 drug raid. They called us The White Monkey Children, because we found Helen Pearly's missing pet white monkey. And the people arrested during the 1982 drug raid, many of them Atwaters, pointed to that white monkey that had escaped from White Animal Farm, a zoo in Old Orchard at the time, they pointed to that white money and called it an alien. Helen Pearly, look her up, is the founder of the Scarbourgh Marsh preserve, an animal preserve that started out with one pet white monkey, and is today, many thousands of acres of protected land known by the name The Scarboughorgh Marsh.
Can you see NOW why the idiots screaming aliens are seen as so damned idiotic?
But can you also see the names on the cross?
There were 31 children involved in helping Helen Pearly capture her escaped pet white money.
Drive through the scarborough marsh looking at the names of the beheaded victims on those crosses... 29 of the 31 White Monkey Children are now dead, killed and tossed in the marsh, where 40 years ago, they helped little old lady look for her lost pet albino monkey.
Every one of them accused of being alien abductees; accusations which was screamed ONLY by the drug dealers and drug users of the 1982 drug raid, which took place in the Scarbourough Marsh.
The only people who accuse me of aliens are the people now out of prison, who went to prison because of the 1982 drug raid... a drug raid known to locals as "The 458 Shoot Out" due to one woman screaming "Four! Five! Eight!" in between each time she loaded up her shotgun.
Everybody that has shown up in the marsh since June 2001, has been either one of the now adult White Monkey Children, or one of their children or grandchildren.
EVERY - SINGLE - ONE.
Go to the marsh, look for the crosses. Read the names. My cousin Timmy Murphy's cross is not the only one and if you open your eyes and start looking at the side streets all through the marsh, you'll see one hundred and twenty of these crosses, some with 5 or more names on them. Crosses the entire country has seen on Dateline, 20/20, and dozens of unsolved crime shows... crosses that the Atwarers and their friends at the Sandford Ward church, are right now, this very week, posting all over social media, claiming aren't there, claiming I'm the only one talking about them, when clearly I'm not seeing hoe Dateline and 20/20 are pret big international news shows... and also claiming "Yeah EeelKat's crazy, she believes in aliens" when its extremely well documented my not believing in aliens and my debunking alien abductions as hoaxes... and these same people are also trying to convince people on social media "cats!".... but the cats were my mother's not mine, and my son was murdered November 14, 2013, two years before my mother's cat incident occurred.
These people are making total idiots of themselves, because all any one has to do is look up the new reports about the Scarbourough Marsh murders and the Cascade Murders to see that since June 2001, a LOT of people here in the marsh have been murdered, and originally they were not thought to b connected, but, now it is known that they are.
I wish these crazy ass Atwaters and their weird Todd Murphy obsessed Sanford Ward lunatics and their alien abduction ufo nuts, would leave me and my family alone. I don’t know what their problem is or why they are so obnoxiously hell bent on stalking my family and harassing us like this, but I am getting pretty damned sick of it. I have enough shit to deal with with, oh, I don’t know, half my family being murdered, my son’s killer still being on the loose, 9 years bedridden and still relearning to walk, … I don’t need these fucktards jumping into my life and trying to grab their 15 minutes of fame by tampering with the FBI’s investigation into hunting down my son’s murderer.
Know the truth. The truth will set you free.

EelKat's Secrets To Squidoo Success
On April 17, 2007 I joined Squidoo and had no idea what I was doing. Now on April 17, 2008 I have gained Giant Squid status, had lenses reach the coveted Top 100 List, and am making enough of a steady income to run the Pidgie Fund on my Squidoo income alone! Over the past four or five months, I have gotten several emails from new comers seeking my advice on how I got where I am today, and how they can do it too.
Well, I do not consider myself an expert at Squidoo. The way I see it, I'm still learning the ropes myself. There are others who have been here longer and have done way more than I have. But, that is no reason why I can't tell folks what it is I do. Maybe in trying to teach others, I will become even better at this as well? Who knows. Anyways, I now bring to you this lens, where I well discuss and debate on the things I do with Squidoo, and you can read it and see if anything here, helps you out. I have chosen to write this in a question and answer interview format, as I find it easier to write up my answers this way. Hopefully you will find it useful in your own quest for higher Squidome.

EelKat's Little Black Book of Secrets
A Look at My Life As a Squid
Why Did You Join Squidoo?
Once upon a time, long ago and far away, in August of 1997 I joined the new found craze of geeks everywhere, and joined the internet. My first visit was to Yahoo, where I set up my email account . . . the very same email account I still use today 11 years later. My next move was to eBay, quickly followed by Amazon. I became known to the world as EelKat, the cartoon watching, comic book crazed, Disney fanatic, Uncle Scrooge obsessed, forum posting maniac who joined new forums weekly and posted 5,000 word rants at a rate of 20 to 30 a day on EACH of the forums. In less than 2 months I had my own fan following. In less than 6 months I had my own stalker and had to contact the FBI as a result to get rid of him.
In 2004 I discovered five new sites to join: Fanlisting.org, Freewebs.com, Proboards.com, Blogspot.com, and Wordpress.com. With the help of these five websites, my manic chatroom-message board posting hobby became over night my #1 source of income, as I set out to no longer joining message boards, but now building them instead. Soon I owned 32 blogs, 13 forums, 24 fanlistings, and nearly 300 individual FreeWebs hosted websites.
It was on April 17, 2007, while using Freewebs.com to create yet another fanlisting, that I ran across Squidoo, quite by accident. I was seeking info for the fanlisting site I was building, and Google's #1 search result had lead me to a Squidoo lens.
It was love at first sight.
Squidoo was like taking a Freewebs site and crossing it with a Blogger Blog, than throwing in a discussion board on it to boot. I knew in an instant that this was the place for me, and less than 10 minutes later I was building my first lens. By the end of the day I had 15 lenses, and the rest was history, I have never looked back.
What Do You Like Best About Squidoo?
Obviously I love Squidoo. I mean, I've got 313 lenses, and you can't have 313 of something and not like it right? But what do I like best of all? Well, let's see . . .
What is it about Squidoo that has caused you to stick around?
uhm . . . I don't know. I just plain have more fun here than on any other website I have ever visited, so I spend most of my online time here now.
I love to talk/write about things I know, and I love sharing ideas and info with other people. Squidoo allows me to do that with a limitless abandon. I can write about anything I want to, when ever I want to, in whatever way I want to, and I can do it any time night or day.
I just love Squidoo, and so I keep coming back day after day, month after month.
Are You REALLY Making Money Via Squidoo?
When I first joined I didn't know you could make money on Squidoo. I came here to build lenses and share my knowledge about my favorite subjects. Than I learned I could make money doing something I loved doing: writing about my hobbies, so now I have made I my goal to make a regular and steady income here.
My goal is to get $458 a month, in direct payout from Squidoo.com (NOT including off-site affiliate incomes) and to keep that amount rising higher as the months and years go by.
I love watching those numbers rise!
UPDATE: February 15, 2009
Well, what do you know, a year has past since I first created this lens and I'm now ranked as one of Squidoo's highest paid lensmasters! (I got an email telling me so!) YAY! And me just 2 months away from my 3rd year here. Cool! The drawback? I now have to pay taxes. Just got my 1099 from Squidoo. Oh well. This year I made more money on Squidoo, than I made last year working at Macy's. Wow! I'm floored! If it keeps going like this, I may never have to work offline again!
Which of Your Lenses Brings in The Most Money?
I have 5 lenses that bring in high affiliate sales each month since the first week I created each of them. (Sales coming from the Amazon and eBay modules). They are:
Are There Other Ways To Make Money With Squidoo?Making Money Via Squidoo Other Than From Squidoo
The figures listed in the section above are only the PayOut figures from my payments, made to me by Squidoo themselves; this is NOT however the only money my Squidoo lenses bring in.
Most of the money I make from my Squidoo lenses does not actually get paid to me by Squidoo!
Zazzle.com is where most of my "Squidoo income" comes from. I have been a Zazzler since December 2004. I am and always was an artist. I paint animals, dogs, cats, roosters, birds, flamingos, peacocks, goldfish, eels, and more using watercolors, acrylics, pastels, pen & ink, and digital media. I also illustrate books. To add to the mix I am a costumer and fashion designer, and do a lot of figure art as well for that. All in all, art is a very major part of my life.
What does me being an artist have to do with making money via Squidoo? I sell prints of my art via Zazzle. I sell T-shirts, greeting cards, mugs, mouse pads, magnets, buttons, Christmas ornaments, tote bags, and more all featuring my art on them. I have more than 20 Squidoo lenses that do nothing but promote my art for sale on Zazzle! About 65% of my lenses have at least one link on them to at least one of my products for sale on Zazzle. I make $40 - $120 a month from Zazzle via sales of my products off my Squidoo Lenses.
After Zazzle, my second biggest non-Squidoo Squidoo income comes from CafePress. Like Zazzle, I have been a member of CafePress since December of 2004. I joined them both the same day. Like Zazzle, I sell my art on various products.
Cafepress is different from Zazzle in that, Squidoo has a CafePress module which allows me to promote my CafePress items using that feature. Via CafePress I bring in about $70 per payout, which is about 3 times a year.
UPDATE: November 2008:
There is now a Zazzle module, meaning that I not only can sell my Zazzle products, but can make Squidoo affiliate sales as well by featuring my products on my lenses via the module! Yay!
So What Do You Spend Your Squidoo Money On?
When I'm not on Squidoo building lenses I'm usually doing this:

I heard some pretty cool news recently from superlensmaster Loyalis, the self-styled Captain Squid.
He made $1,000 from just one Squidoo lens in one month. . .
Can You Guess Why This Picture Is Here?
What Is Your Secret To Lens Success?
By April 2008, I had built more than 240 lenses, was listed on Squidoo's Top 10 Lensmasters (September 2007), have had lenses placed in Squidoo's Top 100, and have won Squidoo's The Giant Squid Award:
(On May 16, 2008, my name was added to Squidoo's Top 100 Most Rated Lensmasters! My name entered the list at #94!)
I have created several top ranking lenses, 4 of which are currently in the Squidoo top 1,000 and one that not only made it to the top 100 it made it all the way to #32! So, what is my secret to building high-ranking lenses that sweep in money?
Focus on content.
Your readers want a unique point of view about topics they enjoy. What are you passionate about? What do you have expertise in? THAT is what you should write about. Just write good content. People like that. Write about what you know and your readers well love you for it. The more you write, the more folks will keep coming back to read what you wrote. Don't be afraid to let your lens get really long. Love your topic and talk about it!
Don't focus on making money.
Focus on informing your readers. If you focus on making money, your readers well know it, and they probably won't stay on your lens too long. Squidoo is filled with spammy money-making lenses owned by folks wondering why their lenses aren't making any money. Well, I ask you: What content have they included to attract readers? The answer: none. Readers don't care if you make money or not, they want to know what you have to say about your chosen topic. Love your topic!
Give your readers a break.
I mix my personal text content with both Money Maker Modules (Amazon, CafePress, & eBay being my top 3 faves!) and non-money making modules (Polaroid, BlackBox, and Polls, being the 3 I used most) . Think of it as a TV show: Your written text is the show, and the Money Making Modules are the commercials that pay for the show. The non-Money Maker Modules add color and hook reader interest.
Make sure the Money Makers are on topic though. If you are talking about Harry Potter characters, than put Harry Potter books on your Amazon module and Harry Potter action figures on your eBay module. If you are writing a bead-work how-to lens, than put bead craft books and seed beads on your eBay module.
Share the link love!
Are you writing about self-publishing? Than add a link list to your personal fave printers, like LuLu.com. Even if the links don't make money for you, your readers well enjoy it. Your reader want to find what they are looking for, and if you help them find it, they well come back to your lens again and again, and they well tell their friends about it. And keeping your readers coming back for more is the real secret to making money through Squidoo.
Keeping on sharing the link love and send readers to your other lenses. The more of your lenses they read, the better your chances are of making a sale!
Share the link love a little bit more: feature some on-topic lenses built by other lensmasters. No need to be stingy, there are enough visitors to go around, so why not send your readers to read the lenses you enjoyed reading yourself?
UPDATE ADDED: February 15, 2009:
The side effects of linking out to others on my lenses! OMG! They started linking back!
While I haven't had much success getting traffic from Digg (I get maybe 4 visits total from each submission to Digg), I have had very good luck with YahooAnswers. The funny thing about that is, I'm not the one posting links to my lenses at YahooAnswers! Several of my highest ranked lenses (including on that made it to #32 on the top 100 list in 2007) got their high rankings after someone answered a question on YA and than told the question asker that they had found their answer on one of my lenses than added it's link as a reference! I only found out this was happening when I checked my stats and found that a lot of my traffic was coming from YA, (which I had never heard of at the time) so I went to YA to find out what it was and why my traffic was coming from their and I found several questions linking back to several of my lenses. I was amazed!
YahooAnswers is not the only case of this happening however, another site, AnswerBag has been sending me traffic quite regular for more than a year now. Like YahooAnswers, people post questions about various topics, and members submit their answers, advice, and suggestions, often adding links to various websites recommending that the person asking the question, check the particular site out to find out more information. As it turns out, several of my lenses, were getting traffic from AnswerBag, a site which I had never heard of before, so I headed over to find out what the site was and to see why it was sending me traffic. As it turns out, several people were referencing several of my lenses as "the best source of information" on the particular topics in question! I was stunned, seeing how I had never heard of this site before and had no idea who any of the people were who were recommending my lenses! The lenses being recommended included my Publishing Methods, Creating Character Profiles, Creating a Fantasy Realm, and Your First Goldfish. As a result of these recommendations, I was getting traffic, and finally decided to join AnswerBag, becoming one the the members answering questions and offering advice, eventually going on to become listed on the site as it's resident expert in Goldfish and Aliens.
On This Lens I Explain How I Get Sales
Which Is Your Most Successful Lens?And How Did It Get That Way?
In October-November when the National Novel Writing Month contest was going on (I won btw!), I was posting comments on their forum and helping out new writers, at a rate of about 50 posts per day. Each one of those posts linked back to my "Publishing Methods" lens via the sig link. During that time I was so focused on the contest that I did not log in on Squidoo (or any other website for that matter) during the entire contest. But than the last week of November rolled in, and I finished my entry early, so I went back to my regular online habits, including Squidoo.
What I found when I got back was a complete and total shock to me, cause not logging in all month I had no idea what my Squidoo lenses had been doing while I was away.
Thanks to my posting over 1000 posts in a 30 day period on the NaNoWriMo forums, my Publishing Methods lens, went from a 14,000 lensrank, all the way up to #32! I found out it had hit Squidoo's Top 100 list about two days after I started posting on the NaNo forums, and that is was getting visits at rate of 400 - 700 per day!
NaNoWriMo had 120,000 people enter it last year, and about 75,000 of them were active posters on the forums, and a good third of those ending up visiting my lens!
The next thing I knew I was getting traffic from bloggers, so I checked the link backs in my stats to see how these blogs which I'd never heard of, were sending traffic to my lens, and I was shocked even further to find that, the writers who had entered the contest, and had found publishers to publish their novel entries, were crediting me and my Publishing Method lens as the "secret to their success!", thus driving even more traffic to my lens via their reviews!
I totally never expected any of this, because I wasn't really actively promoting my lens. I had just stuck it in on my forum sig, without really thinking about it, and than went off to do what I do best, which is help new writers to write better novels.
My lens stayed on the Top 100 list for about a month and a half, and than slowly dropping down to the 500 rank and staying around there ever since.
Oddly though, NaNoWriMo, has a second contest they hold in April, which I have not entered and so am not on their forum posting this year, however, my old posts from last years contest are still being visited and driving traffic to my lens! Thanks to NaNo's April contest going on right now, my Publishing Lens is once again on the move and now hovering around the 200 rank, these past few days. This traffic I'm getting right now is coming in from posts I made during LAST YEAR'S contest! OMG! It just goes to show, that you should be careful what you say on the forums, because even years later, people are still reading your posts!
So, my conclusion is that lensrank is greatly affected by traffic, and heavy doses of traffic in a short time period can really drive lensrank up super fast.
My Top 5 Highest Ranking, Most Visited Lenses Ever
Publishing Methods reached #32 in November of 2007 and gets 100 - 600 visits per week, though in November 2007 and again in November 2008, it got that many visits PER DAY. The other 4, get similar traffic and have each reached 100 - 200 in lensrank.
Secret Tip #1: Forget About Lensrank!
So many people worry and fuss over lensrank it ain't funny.
STOP WORRYING ABOUT LENSRANK!
Yes, I have over 300 lenses.
Yes, several of them are rank under 1,000.
No my highest ranking lenses are not the ones bringing in the most money.
Did you see those two lenses I listed back there, as the two that bring in the most money?
Ironically these 2 lenses of mine that bring in the most money, are both ranked at lower than 30,000!
I have only 2 lenses that I ever worry about lensrank on: Publishing Methods and Lord Sesshomaru Costume.
Why? Because both of these two lenses went straight to the top, hours after I published them, and once they got there, I wanted to make sure that they never came back down. So while my other lenses are often falling to less than 100,000 in rank, these two never go less than 2,000.
While the Publishing Method lens took a month to break the top 100 list, it only took my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens about 10 hours to break 300.
My Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens went to lensrank 264 less than 7 days after I made it, and has NEVER received less than a top tier payment EVER. Since the day this lens was made it has never gotten less than 50 hits in one day, the highest it got in one day was over 400 hits. It also ranks as #1 on Google's page one for 13 of it's keywords, and in the top 10 on Google's page one for the rest of it's keywords. The answer for this is that it is one of only 2 websites on the entire internet which tell you how to make a Lord Sesshomaru costume.
In other words if you can find a niche topic with not only no other Squidoo lenses about it, but also no other websites at all about it, you can in fact reach tier one ranking. Plus it helps if you promote you lens directly to all the people looking for it. I went directly to everyone who was planning to make this costume and asked them what info they needed, and than made the lens, and went back and told them about it. I had over 200 visits before it went out of WIP less than 24 hours after it was published.
(Off line, I am a sales rep with 10 years of field work, if there's one thing I know how to do, it's find a product people want and than show the where to find it. Training in costumer service and sales rep, helps with Squidoo lens promotion even more than you could possibly imagine.)
Outside of those two lenses though, I never bother with worrying about lensrank, and just my lenses dance up and down the ranks how ever they please.
But Doesn't Lensrank Affect Your CafePress, Zazzle, & Affiliate Sales?
No. Not really.
I have over 20 lenses that do nothing but talk about and promote my CafePress & Zazzle shops. These lenses rank from 13,000 to 241,000 and yet all of them are still driving traffic and sales to my CafePress & Zazzle shops!
It's odd really, but it's my lower ranking lenses that are bringing in the highest affiliate sales off of Amazon and eBay modules. Almost all of my top paying lenses with these two modules rank between 5,000 - 30,000. So, while they are slagging when it comes to lensrank, I'm not going to complain seeing how they are making money anyways.
Likewise, you will notice that my highest ranking lenses (namely Publishing Methods, Lord Sesshomaru Costume, Amphibious Aliens, On Being Homeless, and Goth-ography) rank among my LOWEST is affiliate sales! Why is this? Well, if you will notice only one of those 5 lenses actually has any Amazon or eBay modules on it (Lord Sesshomaru Costume).
You don't need high lensrank to make a sale. It only takes one visitor to buy your items. Forget about lensrank and worry about content. Write good content and your traffic will find a way to get to you.
High Rank, High Traffic, & No Money?
A Look At How My Top 5 Reached Top 5:
This has got to be the lens that surprised me the most, because this lens was not planned and not promoted, and yet, somehow it got to be my #1 lens in October of 2008 and remained my #1 lens until January 2009. The fact that this lens got any sort of upper level ranking at all still surprises my today.
I have no idea how Goth-ography became one of my highest trafficked & highest ranking lenses. I never did a thing to promote it. It's one of those lenses that I threw together on a whim, one day when I had nothing to do. I made it in about 45 minutes by randomly pulling rants about the Gothic movement off of my blog and pasting them in, in no real order at all. Then, decorated the page with lots of posters via my AllPosters affiliate account. Finally, I turned it into a lensography by sticking all of my Goth-type lenses all over it. Than, forgot about it and never did a thing about it.
For about 6 months it hovered at a 300,000 rank, and remained last on my list of lenses, lucky if it got any traffic at all, seeing 1 or 2 visits per month. Than in August of 2008, nearly a year after it's creation, I logged in one day to find it had jumped 300,000 spaces in rank and was now sitting at #600 and getting nearly that many visits per day. What happened? I have 2 MySpace accounts. One for me and one for my "Goth-me". On that second MySpace account, is a link to my Goth-ography, posted in a blog post, back when I had made the lens. Somebody, I have no idea who, read that blog post, visited my lens, and than posted a MySpace bulletin, telling others to visit it.
The mountains of traffic that lens was suddenly getting, were all coming from a SINGLE MySpace bulletin! One which I was not able to access or read, due to it not having been posted by anyone on my MySpace friends list! After that, Google took over. Apparently, that spike in traffic, attracted Google's attention; the next thing I knew, I was getting traffic from Google, via searches for variation of the word "Gothic". From that day forth, my Goth-ography lens, has been one of my best trafficked and best ranked lenses, and with not a single Amazon or eBay module on it, it remains one of my least profitable lenses as well.
This lens is living proof, that high rank does not necessarily mean you'll make money. To date, this lens has made about $30 total, all of it from lensrank pay alone and all of that from it's short period as my #1 ranked lens in late 2008.
Lesson: Write random lenses for no reason at all, you never know what people will flock to.
High Rank, High Traffic, & No Money? A Look At How My Top 5 Reached Top 5:On Being Homless & Amphibious Aliens
Most of my lenses started out as a one paragraph blog post, which I expanded upon. Two of my 5 top lenses, "On Being Homeless" and "Amphibious Aliens", were both pulled from not my blog, but from the first draft of a book I was commissioned to write in mid-2008. What you find on them, is straight up copies of various chapters of the first uncorrected proof rough draft of my autobiographical book "For Fear of Little Men".
These lenses, being nothing more, than my brain storming outlet for my book, have zero money making modules on them and were not originally promoted. Eventually, they will have links to the book itself, and will be edited as reviews for the book, but for now, these lenses are rapidly changing, daily edited drafts of the book itself. Actually, there are 5 lenses that are drafts for this same book, but the others do not receive the attention these have. Due to news reporters publicizing various events in my life (namely my being homeless and my contact with aliens, which resulted in the angry mob that made me homeless), these two lenses saw an alarming boost in traffic, from curiosity searchers looking to find out more info about the news reports, and both of these lenses are not only heavily trafficked, but also heavily commented, though due to the nature of these lenses, the commenting feature as since been disabled.
As for my traffic, I have ABC News and the resulting curiosity seekers to thank for that, as well as a blog review which "condemned" these lenses by calling them "the tip jars of Squidoo"! LOL! I found that term hilarious seeing how not only do I make not a penny from either of these lenses, but there is absolutely nothing on them that in any way tries to make money! I am accused of supposedly using Squidoo as a means of "panhandling" with these 2 lenses being the "tip jars" themselves! ROTFLMAO! Woo-Hoo! OMG! If the writer of that blog post had actually read the lenses in question, they would have known that I was homeless at one point IN MY PAST and that I am NOT homeless today and that these lenses are the result of me being asked to write a book about how I became homeless, what it was like being homeless, and how I got back on my feet again (a fact which is started on the lenses.) I found out about the "tip jar" blog post after it started sending traffic to my lenses. I love it when people take a quick glance at something, jump to all sorts of conclusions, and than write a bad review without actually knowing anything about the thing they are writing a bad review about. You should always read the entire lens before writing a review about it, you might actually learn something.
Lesson #1: It's your life, write about it.
Lesson #2: Good reviews are good for traffic, but bad reviews are even better.
(UPDATE: Originally one lens, it has now been divided into 3 separate lenses.)
High Rank, High Traffic, & No Money?
A Look At How My Top 5 Reached Top 5:
The Publishing Methods lens started out as a rant on one of my blogs and later became a "link farm" linking out and indexing hundreds of useful sites for writers, authors, and self-publishers who needed help sifting through the scams on the internet to find the sites that were really useful.
There are many articles written telling you not to overload your lens with links, because Google hates that. Well, maybe that's true and maybe it isn't. All I know, is that there are well over 500 links on this one lens alone, and that never stopped traffic from coming in, in fact, that was the very reason traffic was coming! I had spent months, researching sites for writers and sifting out the scams, and than putting all of those links together in one place. This is a case of lots of links being a good thing, because they links are targeted and relevant, and meet the customer demand for a list of sites that are useful for new writers.
My goal on this lens was never about making money (it was one of my early lenses made before I was even aware you could make money on Squidoo!). I created a banner for it, and placed that banner in my sig on the NaNoWriMo forums, (a site for writers, authors, and self-publishers, many of whom are teens and young adults just starting out and looking for help in their writing career) and from there things just snowballed, as first one NaNo member after another started writing blog reviews about my lens and how it had been the resource that had helped them to get their first book published.
So, for 2 years, this lens has rocked on without a single affiliate module on it and thus while it is my most trafficked and highest ranked lens ever, it has made $0 in affiliate sales, with it's only income being from lensrank, though due to it's lensrank it has never made less than $7 per month since October 2007. (I have recently added Amazon modules to this lens, so it may soon become one of my money makers lenses.)
Lesson #1: Find a demand, fill the need.
Lesson #2: Listen to advice, but know when to follow it and when to toss it aside.
High Rank, High Traffic, & No Money? A Look At How My Top 5 Reached Top 5:Lord Sesshomaru Costume
Of my 5 highest ranked/trafficked lenses, only the Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens had Amazon and eBay modules on it: dozens of them, well over 100. Why? Because this lens is a review lens of sorts, a very tiny niched topic, and one of only TWO websites out there on it's topic: making a Lord Sesshomaru costume. This lens resulted from me making my own costume, and being asked by others how I was doing it, because they wanted to do it too. I created the lens, than emailed the link to my several dozen requesters informing them that I had created the site on their request. It got more than 300 visits with in the first couple of hours after it's being published, and did something totally unheard of on Squidoo: it's first day as a "ranked" lens, it ranked 700! (From a starting creation of being lens # 200,000 and something on Squidoo.) It broke a record for being the fastest moving lens ever on Squidoo. By the end of it's first week it rank #200 and was getting 700 visits PER DAY. Wow! And all I had done was to email it to about 30 people!
What happened? I emailed it to several people who live in Japan, where Sesshomaru is the reigning icon, and can be seen "walking down the streets" every day, all over the country, due to the onslaught of Japanese fangirls who take to dressing up like him and than parading through the streets. These girls, were quick to tell all of their fellow fangirls, who in turn started texting each other, emailing each other, blogging each other, and my oh my, some body ended up contacting the creator of Sesshomaru and next thing I knew I had editors from the comic book telling me what "mistakes" I had made on my lenses. Four months and 24 Lord Sesshomaru lenses later an all out war broke out, as 210 star-struck lovesick crazed fan girls took to a love-hate battle on the comment box of my lens, which receive 210 comments in the space of 6 hours! (All of which now deleted, due to the heated and alarming adult-rated nature of their debate.)
I learned a lot about online traffic from making this lens. I learned, that if you have a hobby and someone sends you an email asking you to create a website telling how you do what you do, then you sure as hell better make that website! Customer demand for this site was out there, but no one had ever made a site like it, and once it was found out I was a hobbiest AND a web builder, every one else in the hobby wanted me to make the site, so I did, and boy, was it worth it!
I also learned that the best online promotion there is, is to tell the person who requested you to build the site, that you built it on their request, and believe me, they will do the rest, via word of mouth! They will tell EVERY ONE! Hobbiests, know other hobbiests. Fanatical die-hard hobbiests are obsessive in their love for their hobby. Fanitical hobbiests know other fanitical hobbiests. Hobbiests love to share "trade secrets" with each other.
My Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens is undoubtedly my "most popular" lens, and yet, while high ranking and heavy trafficked, it ranks as one of my lowest in sales in with it's innumerable Amazon modules. Why? Because it's target audience, is do-it-yourselfer seamstresses who love Lord Sesshomaru. A small audience, looking for advice on how to sew an outlandish and rather difficult to make costume. They are looking for information, and are prone to use every day items to bring their creation to life. I know, because I am one of these crazed fangirls myself. We buy local and we buy cheap, because we have to buy a lot, and are likely to spend thousands of dollars and 3 or 4 years of our time before we finally finish with our costumes. And thus, we are very unlikely to buy anything off an online site in the process, resulting in a very popular, yet very unprofitable website. However, as profit was never the goal of this lens, it does not bother me that it ranks so low on my list of profitable lenses.
Lesson #1: Find a hobby you do, write a lens about it, and tell your hobbiest friends about it. Hobbiests are the best promoters there are of their hobby; they know it, they love it, and they love to tell every one about how much they love it. Best traffic secret there is: love your subject and tell others who love it too.
Lesson #2: If someone requests it and you know all about it, go ahead a write it.
(UPDATE: Originally one lens, it has since been divided into 4 separate lenses.)
High Rank, High Traffic, & No Money?
So, there you have it, a behind the scenes look at my traffic vs my lensrank vs my sales. High ranked lenses bring in traffic, low ranked lenses bring in sales. My conclusion? The be successful with Squidoo, you need both.
My 6th most successful lens "Your First Goldfish", is perfect example of this on many levels. I love Goldfish. I raise Goldfish. I know an awful lot about Goldfish. I get asked a lot of questions about Goldfish. So, I wrote a lens titled: Your First Goldfish. It filled a need. Now when people ask me about Goldfish, I can tell them: "I already answered that question, and many others, here . . ." They go to the site, they find the answer, they find other answers, and they find lots of Amazon links.
This lens is different from my Top 5, however in that this lens, gets a steady stream of sales, and while not nearly as high ranked or as high trafficked as the other 5, it ranks as one of my top 5 most profitable lenses. It is what I call a "mid-section lens".
I divide my lenses into four levels or layers: the high ranked lenses, the mid-section lenses, the money makers, and the low-level or WIP lenses. When someone asks me: "What type of lenses should I make?" I tell them, some of each. Be multi-faceted, and create lenses in layers, for that is the true secret to success on Squidoo.
If you take a look at my 5 high ranking/trafficked lenses you will notice a common thread to all 5 of them: They are what is known on Squidoo as "big lenses". How big are they? My Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens has 25,000 words on it. Before being divided into several smaller lenses however, it had 75,000 words on it. And for those who don't know how many words 75,000 words is: a 100 page Nancy Drew book averages at 50,000 to 75,000 words per novel.
Yep, I write lenses that are bigger than the average novel. That is not my biggest lens word-wise, however. My biggest lens ever was "On Being Homeless" before it was divided into the 5 lenses that make up the book's draft today. Between these 5 lenses are a grand total of 274,000 words! If you were to attempt to read the lens top to bottom in one sitting it would take you a minimum of 6 hours, providing your were a speed reader. As I said, this lens (now 5 lenses) is an actual book draft, and thus, you can read the book, as it is being written, changed, and edited. This is the first time I have ever written a book online like this.
These lenses stand out from others on Squidoo in that I am the only lensmaster who actually sits down and spends months (not hours, not days, not weeks, but actual MONTHS) writing the text for a single lens. Obviously, I don't do this with all of my lenses other wise I would not have topped 400 lenses in January 2009. However, it is these mega-huge mega-giants that are bringing the traffic to all of my other lenses, and that is a point to consider. It's something I call "the filter method" of lens creation.
Big lenses, bring in a different type of traffic, than regular lenses. Big lens have lots and lots of words. A lot of text, and not much else. These lenses get lots and lots and lots of traffic for a very simple reason: it takes 4 or 5 days to actually read everything on a "big lens". If you get 30 visits each day for 3 days, it's because the same 30 people kept coming back each day, not because 90 people were visiting your lens. That's the secret to success on Squidoo: you have to keep your readers coming back for more. A big lens is not built for your average browser audience, it is built for the reader audience who is looking for a particular piece of information and is willing to sit down and spend not only several hours, but also several days returning to your lens to read it. The average browser is going to see the "walls of text" and be scared off, but they are very likely to look at one or two of your other lenses before they leave. And that's where "The Filter Method" comes in:
The Filter Method:
What It Is & Why I Do It
The reason I mentioned the Goldfish lens back there is because it or rather my Goldfish hobby itself, was the inspiration for my creating The Filter Method, of lens creation.
Goldfish are messy fish. They produce twice as much wastes as other fish. They Uproot plants, and overturn gravel, and overall cause a huge muddy, cloudy, mess in the tank, which requires a much larger filter, than you would use were you raising any other type of fish. You can't change the nature of the beautiful, yet disruptive and messy fish. All you can do, is provide them with a place to live, and do you best to counteract their messiness with the use of a filter system custom tailored just for Goldfish. The filter on your tank is going to be the determining factor that will decide with you have strong healthy fish or weak sickly fish. The filter you use on your tank, is the most important part of your fish's life.
Squidoo is just like that the the Goldfish tank. You have a big tank and lots of fish who call themselves "Squids" all swimming around and stirring things up and making a big mess while they are all trying to compete with each other for lensrank. Each of those Squid has their own tank, and in each tank are their lenses all floating around.
In a successful Goldfish filter, you need a layer of filter media. The first layer is a sponge with big holes in it. This sponge attracts all of the particles in the water and draws them in. However, only the biggest particles will get stuck in the sponge, the smaller ones go right on through the holes and would head back into the water, if you don't add a second layer of media, this time a cotton batting. The cotton, like the sponge, also draws in the water, but it draws it in more slowly, due to the smaller holes, like wise, it traps all but the smallest of the particles. The tiny particles would go back into the tank, but now you add the third layer, a carbon layer, with holes that are almost microscopic. The big and mid sized particles will ever reach this layer, but the microscopic ones will. In the end, what goes in as very dirty water, comes out clean.
The thing about the filter is that if you take any one of those layers away, the whole system fails. The more layers you have the healthier your fish are. But take away any one of those layers and your fish become sick.
Squidoo lenses are the same way. You have the big lenses, the ones that draw in lots of traffic, but than don't keep much of that traffic, and thus don't bring in much of an income. The traffic they brought in however, now wants to look at your other lenses. Your smaller, mid level lenses, have a mix of text and money maker modules, and while they don't draw in nearly as much traffic as the big lenses, they hold the traffic longer, thus are prone to higher sales and will become you most profitable lenses. Most of you traffic is going to stop here, but some are going to want more, and they will move down to the next level, to your "shopping" lenses (low ranked which are just to promote items for sale and nothing else) and the seasonal lenses (Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's etc.; popular for only a week or 2 each year). These lenses will only draw in minimal traffic, but they will bring in enough of an income to warrant making them.
Like the layers in the fish tank filter, you should have a few lenses from each level: big lenses to attract lots of traffic; mid-sized lenses to bring in profits; low ranked or season ranked lenses to fill in the gaps that the other two missed. If you have nothing but "big lenses" you'll get lots of traffic, lots of lensrank, but no income to show for it. If you have lots of low-ranked or seasonal lenses, you won't get much traffic, and with out the traffic from your big lenses, you won't get as many sales either. Nothing but the average to mid-ranked lenses will, bring in an income, but not nearly as much as you would have had, had you had a high trafficked big lens drawing people in. You see, like the filter on the fish tank, having lenses of varying types and sizes will bring in a wider variety of traffic and and filter that traffic throughout all of your other lenses.
Google likes a lot of text. Google is going to send more traffic to a text heavy lens than to a Amazon-link heavy lens. You want a big lens to attract the traffic. Only the readers are going to stay, the rest are going to trickle through to your other lenses. That's why I call it the Filter Method, and that's why I have the mega-huge lenses, like this one you are reading right now . . . notice how there is not a single money maker module on this lens, and yet, this lens sends heavy traffic to most of my other lenses, making it one of my most profitable lenses even though it in and of itself does not make any affiliate income. This lens is a "filter" drawing in traffic and than dispersing it to my other lenses.
OMG! You Have 313 Lenses! How Did You Ever Find So Many Topics To Write About? Where Do You Get Your Ideas?
I have a lot of hobbies and lead a very busy life. I get my ideas for topics to write about from my life, my hobbies, my jobs, my family, things I do, places I go, etc. Here is a list of the things that inspire me most:
Here is an Index of My Lenses
Help! I Can't Think of Any More Topics!
What About Burn Out?
How Do You Avoid It?
Believe it or not, I get stuck all the time! Ironically that is how I ended up with 350 lenses! but than I deleted a bunch of them a few weeks ago and ended up down under 300 again.
Anyways, when I get bored and can't think of anything to do on Squidoo, I usually end up on one of the forums I haunt (eBay's Soapbox, NaNoWriMo, AbsoluteWrite, CosPlay.com, 4HWW, PortCon, ProBoards Support, Mrs. Nesbits, Snape's Dungeon, and of course SquidU). Next thing I know I'm busy posting and chatting with other members and from chatting with my online buddies I usually come up with ideas for new lenses. I find forum chatting a great way to come up with new lens topic ideas.
That doesn't always work, though, and sometimes I just don't log in on Squidoo at all. I figure, if I'm not getting any ideas, than I'm suffering from burnout and need a break. Usually I'll not log in for 7 or 8 days. Gives me time to clear my head from Squidoo and start over. The longest I ever went was 3 months, not logging in.
Sometimes you just need a break. No matter how much you love a hobby, if you do it too much you'll get bored with it, so it's best to give yourself a vacation from your hobbies every once in a while, and building Squidoo lenses is no exception. So I just give myself a *Squidoo vacation* and go about with the rest of the things I do in life.
Usually by the time I finally come back to Squidoo, my head is so full of ideas that I can't keep up with them.. You can tell when I've taken a vacation from Squidoo, because when I come back, I end up with 20 new lenses in one week! (though I sometimes end up deleting them, once I *come to my senses* and realize I just can't handle that many at once!)
How Do Your Lenses Go From An Idea To A Lens?
The Horrors of Having 4,000 Blog Posts
How do my lenses get started? OMG! That is a nightmare in itself. Long before I was a Squidooer, I was a Blogger, and an overly hyper active rampant blogger at that.
I've got several blogs, (32 from one blog host alone!) some of them have been around for years, but most of them I don't use anymore, so I won't bother listing those. One of my older blogs has just under 2,000 posts on it and I still keep posting over there.
I do have one that actually is a "Squidoo" blog, more or less; well it isn't a Squidoo blog, it's just me going off on a rant every few days. The weird thing about this is is that nearly every single rant I wrote foor this blog has since expanded and become a Squidoo lens!
I call it my Squidoo blog, but it's not so much a blog about Squidoo, as it my "workshop" where I do my writing up drafts for Squidoo lenses, so it's really random and often a complete mess, but if anyone wanted to see how my Squidoo lenses get from an idea to a lens, this is the place you'd want to go.
Most every one of my lenses started out as a post on this blog, and they usually end up with links on the blog once I get done with them. If you start following my posts on this blog, you know pretty much what my next Squidoo Lens is going to be about. Here are my lastest posts:

Secret Tip: #2 DO NOT LIMIT YOUR LENS TOPICS!
A lot of people come to Squidoo from CafePress, and use Squidoo to promote their shops. This is good. This is very good. I do this too. Squidoo is great for promoting CafePress shops. They even have a module to help you do so.
A common thing I have found folks to do is to focus on writing lenses on one topic and one topic only for the sole purpose of promoting their CafePress shops. Often they feel that they should ONLY write lenses that are the same topic as their CafePress shops. This can become your downfall.
DO NOT LIMIT YOUR LENS TOPICS!
EXPAND! EXPAND! EXPAND!
You have a lot of hobbies, interests, likes, and dislikes. Write lenses about all of them . . . each and every one of them!
You can write lenses about anything, and for every topic out there, somewhere there is a CafePress shop to promote it. If you feature some one else's shop you get an affiliate payment and you help a fellow CafePress-er make a sale... I feature all of my own shops as much as possible, but my CafePress items are limited in topic, and my Squidoo lenses have a wide range of topics, so when I don't have a CafePress item of my own to promote, I head to CafePress's marketplace and look for someone who does and promote their shop instead!
I'm always on the look out for other people's CafePress shops to promote, and as my Squidoo lenses get heavily trafficked, that means I'm sending traffic to you and your CafePress shop, wither you have a Squidoo account or not!
Write About Things That Matter To You
What's the most important thing for you to keep in mind when building a new lens? Writing about things that matter to YOU. Forget about what the latest "hot topic" is. Forget about what you think "others" will like.
Ask yourself: What do you like? What are your hobbies? What are YOUR favorite things to talk about with your friends? That's what you should build lenses about. Things that interest you. Things that you enjoy. Why?
Because if you like it, than you'll enjoy writing about it. If you enjoy writing about it, than you'll be inspired to put your heart and soul into writing it. And that's what people who read Squidoo lenses want to read. They don't want mountains of links and Flikr pics and YouTube vids. Those are all good, yes, but they want to hear your take on the subject. They want to hear your views. They want to know why you chose your topic. So be sure to add lots of text modules and fill them up with lots of writing. Lots of content is good... especially if it's content that you care deeply about. Write what you know. Write what matters to you. That is the secret to great lenses.
Me . . . :P
Perfect Man #1. YAY! Dog Demons!
Perfect Man #2. YAY! Pirates!
You Seem To Promote Other People's Lenses an Awful Lot. Why? What is in it for you? Should I be doing this on my lenses?
No reason really. I just love to show off lenses I like, It doesn't matter if it's a lens I built or one that somebody else built, if I like it I'll find a reason to tell others to check it out. In fact, I have actually built lenses just so I could showcase other peoples lenses!
What is in it for you?
Not a thing. It just feels good knowing that I can do something to help others get traffic to their own lenses, thats all.
Should I be doing this on my lenses?
Absolutely! I believe that having "things to do" on your lenses, well help to make your readers stay on your lenses longer and come back to visit it more often. Recommending other folks lenses, gives your readers something to do after they have finished reading your lens. It'll help the other lensmaster to get more traffic. It'll promote a better feeling that Squidoo is an interconnected community and not a bunch on random pages. It's a win-win, it helps you, it helps other lensmasters, and it helps your readers.
But I've never featured a lens before, how do I do it?
Easy, all you do is go to the "A - Z List", under section "F", and add the "Featured Lenses" module to your lens. Than in the blank, add the URL of the lens you want to feature. You can feature up to 5 lenses in each module.
Lenses I Built To Showcase Featured Lenses On
How often do you update your lenses?
Every single day.
Well, not every lens, every day.
Usually, I'll have an idea pop into my head and I'll say, "Hey, that'd be great for that lens." Next thing I know, I'm logged in and editing away.
As a general rule I'll edit 3 or 4 lenses a day.
How often do you create new lenses?
I used to have the goal to create at least 1 new lens per day. My goal was to reach 100 lenses, which I did 6 months in, and than kept going to reach 200 which took me another 4 months to do. Than I started striving for 300, but am going at a much slower pace. I probably won't hit 300 until this fall now, because my focus now is no longer quantity.
Now that I've got quantity, I'm striving for quality. A lot of my lenses don't meet up with the standards I've given myself to meet (and I'm a very hard task master on myself too!) I've got about 40 really good lenses, and the rest really need A LOT of work, before I am comfortable saying they are really good.
Right now I have 262 lens published and about 20 more still WIP, so my main focus is editing, updating, improving and overall making better the lenses I already have. After I've got the lenses I already have improved to the point that I'm happy with them, than I'll start up creating new lenses more often again. But for now I only make about 1 new lens once every week or so.
What common mistake do you, as a lensmaster, make most often?
Spelling. Spelling is my curse. My spelling problem is two-fold. For one thing I never learned how to spell properly in the first place, which results in me spelling phonetically the words I can't memorize from reading them in books.
Secondly, I have dyslexia, (the reason I was never able to learn to spell properly) and tend to spell about half the words I write in complete reverse, example, if I want to say cat, usually I write tac.
In my case even the best spell checker is unable to correct my spelling, because of the front to back spelling reversal. Spell checkers look at the first 2 letters and than guess at what you should have spelt. But when what should be the first 2 letters are now the last 2 letters, the spell checker totally has no idea what word you were saying.
It took me nearly three years to self program my MSWorks spell checker, but eventually I did get it programed to catch my odd misspellings and set them right, so today, most folks see what I type on my lenses and forum posts and they just assume I'm a pretty good speller, when in fact, all of my posts are first typed using FireFox (the browser auto spell checks) and than run through my customized MSWorks. A process that takes a bit of time, and results in me not answering as quickly as I might had I typed the forum post right into the reply box.
Even doing all this, a lot of misspelling still slip by, but at least you can actually read what I wrote. If my words had not been spell checked, you would be hard pressed to make heads or tails of them at all.
What does all this mean for my Squidoo lenses? It means that lenses that should take me 2 or 3 days to build, actually take me as long as 3 to 4 weeks to build, because once I have built the lens, I have to run it through a massive series of checks and rechecks, often 4 or 5 times, before I finally am able to catch all of the spelling errors. It's a long and tedious process, but it can be done, and as you can see, even with many mistakes still on about half of my lenses, I did become a Giant Squid, during their first round in September of 2007. (Spelling is one of the criteria of becoming a Giant Squid.)
There was a time when I was constantly fretting over my spelling, and I tied like hell to learn to spell properly, but after years of trying every spelling program under the sun, and wasting money and stressing myself out over it, finally, I just said to hell with it, this is just the way my mind is going to spell words wither I like it or not, and I'm going to have to learn to live with it and deal with it. The fact is, I'm an author, and an author who has to constantly rely on an editor to help you with little basics like spelling, really becomes a burden all around. I knew I had to make an effort to change this, and if I couldn't change how I spelt things, than I was just going to have to find a way to correct the miss spellings after I'd written them. Once I had accepted the fact that this was a disability that I could not change, I was able to move past it and find ways to work around it and not let it get in the way of my life anymore. This wasn't something I overcame over night though, it took many many years and a whole lot of patience. Now, there are few people who look at my words who could guess that I had dyslexia, most just assume that the few misspellings they see are minor typos, caused by typing too fast and missing a few keys!
For other lensmasters with similar spelling difficulties, I suggest you change your browser to FireFox, as that'll catch most all of your mistakes, as you type. And if you have a lot of words that the normal spell checker misses, than use MSWorks and add those custom words into the spell checker, so that it does catch them.
What non-Squidoo resource have you found that helps you with your lenses?
That's easy. Two answers, and look, I'll even provide links to their websites so you can look them up! Ain't that nice of me. They are:
I currently have 15 books out from one and 8 books out from the other and all of those books are siting here by my computer, because I got them out to do research for several of my lenses. I visit each of these two libraries on a weekly basis and you can find me there quite often, usually doing research for something, and always with mountains of books. The most books I ever took out at one time from Portland was 32.
A Picture Because I Felt Like Putting It Here
Do you rely on Google for traffic to your lenses?
No! Not at all!
When I first joined Squidoo on April 17, 2007, I was getting most all of my traffic from Google and Google only. At that point I had 15 lenses, which I wasn't updating, and I did not know much about Squidoo. Google hits were at 100 - 300 per page per week.
Than in October of 2007 after the Squidoo Google Slap, my lenses all dropped to getting very little traffic from Google, so I started doing my own self-promotion instead to bring in traffic other than from Google. At that point Google hits were 10 - 20 per page per week.
Now, in April of 2008, it's a good thing I did, because in the past month, not a single one of my lenses has gotten a single hit of Google. No one is sure what is going on, but it's so wide spread across Squidoo, that it appears Google has sent Squidoo yet another "slap" and has cut off traffic hits entirely. Looking at my stats page, it's like Google has completely vanished! Now 100% of my traffic comes from my own self-promotion and no where else at all.
The Story Of My Only Lens Google Loves:
Do you ever buy leads to get traffic?
I found this to be a very odd question. But I got asked, so I need to find an answer for it. First off, I have never heard of "buying leads" before. What an odd idea! So, I'm not entirly sure what buying leads is or how one would go about doing it. So, I can answer right quick and say: No, I have never bought leads before.
That should be the end of my answer, right? What me? Answer you with a single sentence? Not likely. You see, this question inspires some thinking on my part and gets me to wondering: Are there really people out there who pay money for marketing? I suppose there must be otherwise I wouldn't have been asked if I do it, right?
I looked it up, and from what I read, it seems that buying leads, is nothing more than a scam, which makes the lead brokers a lot of money, but which pays you only in the promise that you will get traffic to your site . . . some day . . . as long as you just keep sending them monthly checks. Actually, I found thousands of people saying that they had yet to see any traffic at all, even after paying thousands of dollars. I even found a couple of lenses right here on Squidoo, warning against buying leads! So, I haven't tried it, and based on what I'm reading, I'm not going to either.
But the fact remains, you are asking me if I spend money. Yeah . . . about that . . . I don't spend money.
You got to understand here, that the whole concept of spending money is very foreign to me. I'm now making money on Squidoo, but that is a relatively new thing in my life. I've only been on Squidoo for 2 years. Before Squidoo, my income was almost non-existent. In the past 30 years, the most money I had ever made in a single year was $1,800, and that was twice what I normally make. Most years I make less than $800. I've never had money to spend. Never spend money, so never think about things that cost money, and never bother trying to make money to spend either, as I find the concept of "money to spend" a rather vain and foolish notion.
When people come by and see how I live I get the whole: "But, but, but . . . your cloths . . . the way you dress . . . I thought you wear a millionaire. . . you . . . you live in the woods under a tarp? How can you live like this? Don't you need running water? Electricity? Heat? You don't have a phone. Not even a cell phone?!? OMG! How do live without a phone? I'd die without a phone! What's wrong with you? How can you take a refusal of spending money to such extremes?"
When I say I don't like spending money, you better believe I won't spend a penny for ANYTHING. Of course, I've had the comment "Well you're just acting as stingy as a miserly old Scotsman." thrown at me a few times, to which I answer: "Why thank you. How did you know I was Scottish?" They think I'm being sarcastic. I'm not. My grandmother on my dad's side was Scottish, and so was my Grandfather on my mother's side, in fact, he was an immigrant and lived in the US for 70 years before applying for US citizenship. Both married Indians: one a Kickapoo and one a Cherokee. So if you want to start throwing politically incorrect name calling at me, about my spending money like a Scotsman, it might first interest you to know that I am in fact Scottish. Thank you. But moving on, what has any of this to do with buying leads for marketing? Well, like I said, I don't spend money.
When it comes to marketing and such (with me that is) I don't do anything that costs money. Of course it helps that I've never owned either a phone or a credit card too, resulting in I can't join anything that required either information. I also don't spend money off line either, (locals refer to me as a hermit because 4 or 5 months or more go by between my leaving the yard). I did grow up on a farm. I am a farmer. I grow my own food, and what I do by I buy in bulk so I have a years's worth at once. I can live quite well, for years without ever having physical contact with Humans . . . in fact, there was a 20 period when I did just that. Fact is, you got to be around another Human to give them the money for the thing you are buying from them. Yeah. People issues = money issues = no money to spend to begin with = living a very thrifty lifestyle to make up for the lack of money = waste not want not = if I can't see it, touch it, hold it, why should I pay money for it? You see where this is leading too? How this all ties in with me not buying leads online?
Can I see the lead? No.
Can I touch the lead? No.
Can I eat the lead? No.
Can my pets eat the lead? No.
Will the lead keep me warm at night? No.
Okay. I can't see it, I can't touch it, I can't taste it, and it's not going to protect me from Maine's fierce snowstorms, so why should I spend money to buy it, if it serves no useful purpose for me?
I need to see it to buy it, and it has to be something I'll use (food, books, or fabric, and nothing else at all) or I won't pay money for it. My income has been for many years less than $1,800 a year, so I can't spend money on things I can't see or can't use, and thus the reason I never buy any marketing things. When it comes to marketing if it ain't free, I don't need it!
Now, granted, my extreme lifestyle (as it has been referred too) is not something you are likely to be doing yourself, but the principle still applies to you no matter how you live. If you can't see it, can't touch it, can't feed your family with it, can't keep your family warm with it, you really should ask yourself this: "Why the heck should I spend money on it?"
Fact is, there are hundreds of ways to market your site/lenses for free and you should only spend money on marketing AFTER you have exhausted the free leads first.
Where Do You Get The Traffic To All Your Lenses From?(The Answer To The #1 Most Asked Question I Get From My Readers)
Okay, I've been sent this question a couple of times now, so I decided it was time for me to do some research and find out just where exactly my traffic to my lenses does come from. So from January 2008 to April 2008 I tracked my traffic and here are the results of where most all of my readers are coming from. Looking to see where my readers come from and reading my current stats on my most trafficked lenses, here is where my traffic comes from:
And there you have it. The answer to the most asked question I get in regards to my Squidoo lenses. Now you know where my traffic comes from.
An interesting thing I should point out here, is that these lenses get 7 - 35 visits on weeks that I do not visit the forums mentioned above, however they also get 175 - 300 visits on weeks that I do visit those forums and post on a lot of threads.
Another interesting thing is that not a single one of my lenses gets more than 10 visits per week from Google, in fact most get no hits at all from Google, with 100% of my traffic coming from clicks on my forum sig links
So, over all, I say the best way to bring traffic to your lens, is to add a link to it in your sig on every forum you post on, and than just sit back and chat up a storm with people on the forums. If they like the things you say in your forum posts, chances are good they'll click on your sig link to find out what else you have to say.
Another thing is, you'll notice that I have a lot of lenses about comic book topics and those are linked to my sig used on eBay, where I talk to comic book fans. On CosPlay.com and on CrossDressers.com, my forum sig link back to my fashion-cosplay-costume-drag queen lenses. On NaNoWriMo and AbsolutWrite forums, my sig links back to my lenses for self publishers and authors.
So it helps if you match your sig links to the group you are talking to as well. And it also helps if you write Squidoo lenses about topics that you actually practice in your daily life, cause people like to get advice on how to do things from people who actually do them; an example of this would be:
I'm comic book collector and comic book script writer, therefore I also write Squidoo lenses about comic books and chat on forums for comic book fans.
You get the basic idea right? Create Squidoo lenses about things you do in real life, and promote them to others who do or want to do the things you can teach them how to do.

You Must Have Learned Your SEO and Traffic Tricks Some Where, Can You Tell Me Where You Learned To Do This Stuff?
Yep. Trail and error for the most part. I've been on the internet since 1997, so I've had 11 years of doing stuff and learning what works and what doesn't work.
However, in about 2005, I ran across a blog that went on to become the ONLY blog whose RSS feed I subscribe too, as well as the only blog I active read and comment on: ProBlogger written by Darren Rowse. Somewhere on his blog is the story of how he got started, what he did, and how he retired just 2 years after starting his blog. Today he lives off the income brought in from his blog alone, and his blog brings in a whopping $200,000+ per year! ProBlogger is the world's most trafficked blog, as well as the most sought after blogger, and he got that way for a reason: It is quite simply the best blog ever written!
What does he write? He writes about making money online, while avoiding the scams, the MLMs, the get-rich-quick-sceems, and how to drive traffic and sales to your site. He does it without telling you to buy an eBook or sending you to ClickBank links. He tells you what he did, what worked for him, what flopped for him, and he posts it all 100% free right on his blog! All you have to do is search through the topic list for old blog posts and you can find the answer to almost every question you could ever think of to ask about building and promoting a website that brings in both traffic and cash.
Hey, I'll even make it easy for you, by posting the RSS feed of his blog here on my lens. Here are the last 5 posts he has written:

Set Your Blog for Success With These Simple Tactics
How Much Promotion Do You Do?
How much promotion do I do?
Each and every day.
Where do I promote my lenses? MySpace, FaceBook, Freewebs, Blogger, WordPress, Proboards, NaNoWriMo, eBay community, chat rooms, message boards, forums, post-it notes in public restrooms, all the usual stuff.
~~~~~>^..^< The EelKat has spoken.
Wait . . . What? Did I Hear You Say Post-it Notes In Public Restrooms . . .WTH?
Yep. That's what I said.
Post-it notes in public restrooms.
Simple, easy, quick, and when you are on the road as much as I am, you know where every single public bathroom is at every single store, mall, gas station, library, fast-food take-out, and rest stop from York to Biddeford to Bangor to Arcadia and a little bit of New Hampshire and Vermont too. There is hardly a town, city, village, hamlet, or township in Maine that I have NOT left a trail of Post-it notes in public restrooms in. A family of 7 + lots of travel = lots of in the car time = lots of looking for public restrooms = "Hey! why not write the URL of my web sites on a whole package of Post-it notes and leave one in every restroom we stop at!"
No way to tell either.
The stats only tells me what sites sent me traffic, not if the folks were locals who visited those same public restrooms.
"Than why do it at all?"
Every little bit helps, and post-it notes are .99c for a pack of 100. That's a penny for each advertisement, you can't get much cheaper than that for paid advertising!
"So you do this, but you don't know if it brings traffic to your lenses?"
Yep. And you can make a guess as to wither or not this is working, by checking your lens stats. The stats do tell me if the lenses are getting "direct" traffic. Direct traffic is when someone types the URL to the lens in their address bar and comes to the lens directly, without searching for it or clicking on a link.
The lenses that get the most hits from "direct traffic" are also the same lenses I leave on Post-it notes. Now I ask you, how else are those lenses getting direct hits, if not from the Post-it notes?
Banners For Your Lenses & Places To Promote Your Squidoo Lenses:
Make banners for your lenses, and post the banners on your other lenses, your blogs, your MySpace, and any other web sites you may have.
Here are a few banners I use, and the link to the site where I make them. It's quick, it's easy, it's totally free, and I made each of these 2 banners in under 5 minutes!
For info on how to make banners for your own lenses check out this site: Make your own banner at MyBannerMaker.com!
Also, don't forget to submit the URL of your lenses to as many directories as possible. There are hundreds of free directories you can submit to, just search Google to find them. Here are the ones which I think are the best for Squidoo lenses:

How Do You Feel About Comments?
Me? I love comments. I love leaving comments. I love getting comments. I can't speak for other lensmasters, but I personally love getting comments that link to other lenses. Like everyone else, however, I like it when you leave relevant comments on my lenses.
Why are comments good? Lots of reasons.
Leaving comments can lead to conversations and new friendships.
Comments help drive more traffic to both lensmasters.
I often do not see typos and minor mistakes on my lenses, and am grateful to the lensmasters who left comments pointing them out so that I could fix them.
I've joined a lot of groups after the group master left a comment requesting my lens join their group.
I've found and feature lenses I didn't know were out there until the lensmaster posted a link in their comment requesting a link exchange.
I've made changes to lenses after being left comments about ideas I could do to make the lens better.
Comments are good. Comments are fun. Comments boost self esteem.
Does Leaving Comments on Other People's Lenses Effect Your Traffic Any?
Oh my, yes!
I leave comments on every lens which I give 5 stars too. That does not mean I give everyone 5 stars, what that means is, if I like the lens enough to give it 5 stars, than I also like the lens enough to tell it's creator why I liked it and why I gave it 5 stars.
Most every lensmaster whose lens I leave a comment on, usually stops by a few days later and leaves a comment on one or more of my lenses. So yes, leaving comments on other people's lenses most certainly drives some extra traffic to your own lens.
A word of caution here though: Don't go around leaving spam comments.
The Story of My Most Flamed Lens:
What Are Spam Comments and How Do I Avoid Leaving Them on People's Lenses?
A spam comment, is in the simplest of terms, a comment that is irrelevant and should not have been left in the first place.
Looking into spam comments farther, we find four different types of spam comments that are common on Squidoo.
What does each of these terms mean? Let's take a look:
#1) Drive By Spam
This kind of spam is by far the most common, most harmless, and also often, completely unintentional. Usually the commenter is not even aware that want they are doing is spam.
What is it? It is leaving a quick comment, such as one of the following:
As you can see, none of these comments really has anything wrong with them, however, none of them tells the lensmaster that you REALLY read their lens either.
Many people do not even consider this spam. Most lensmasters overlook it and let it pass. Only a few of the most strict lensmasters delete them. You are not likely to get banned by posting these kinds of comments.
#2) Self Promotion Spam
The second most commonly seen spam on Squidoo is self promotion spam. It is quite simply what it says it is and looks a lot like this:
It's a toss up as to how lensmasters will respond to this. Some think there is nothing wrong with it and will leave it on their lenses. Some don't like it and delete it. Some, get miffed and ban you. A few get mad and report you to Squidoo HQ.
I know of one lensmaster who actually gets super pissed and retaliates by visiting all of your lenses and giving each one a 1-star rate, just to spite you for leaving a link to your lens on one of their lenses! (This is called Flaming, see below.)
#3) Spammy Spam Spam
This is the type of spam that is against Squidoo ToS and could get you booted off Squidoo, all of your lenses deleted, and get your computer's ISP banned from ever being able to log in and create a new account ever again. This is True Spam. Spam in it's worst form. Spam, that can be reported to the FBI and result in up to 25 year in prison. Spam in it's true form is illegal and you can go to jail because of it.
What is "True Spam"? We all know it. We've all seen it. And we get dozens to hundreds of it in our email every single day. They are links to websites, with or without a comment. On Squidoo comments, it usually looks something like this:
I do not know of any lensmaster who does not delete these comments and ban the poster.
Rarely have I seen this kind of spam posted by a lensmaster. Usually it is posted by a non-member. Often, it is not even posted by a human, but instead posted by a SpamBot. The most ferocious of all SpamBots is the one that reared it's ugly head in 2005 and became known simply as "The China SpamBot".
Normally these spam posts are harmless link, however, if the posts were left by the viscous China SpamBot, it could cost you your computer and in most severe cases, the host's site as well (in this case the host would be Squidoo.com). What makes The China SpamBot different from other spambots? The links it leaves are not links to regular spam websites, but rather links to viruses, which once clicked on, set out to downloading on your computer, copying all the passwords to all the webs sites you visit, and than erasing it's path, by erasing everything on your computer's hard drive. In some cases it has erased entire websites as well. The China SpamBot is the ultimate in spam, you'll know it when you see it, because it sends out links in Chinese characters, usually a long list of them, several hundred letters long, and containing links to 40 or 50 different sites. If you see this, report it to the FBI, and than delete it off your page. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CLICK ON THE LINK!
To date Squidoo's servers have been very good at stopping The China SpamBot from breaking in and there are no known cases of it ever being able to leave comments on lenses. We can thank Squidoo's team of techs for keeping Squidoo a safe haven for it's lensmasters.
Rarely is Flaming seen on Squidoo. The Squidoo community is built up of a more mature and intellectual group of people than you normally see on sites such as MySpace and Proboards where flaming wars are common and out of control.
What is Flaming? Flaming is essentially sending out hate mail to people for the sole purpose of being a mean faced bully and making people cry. People who flame others are known on the internet as "Trolls". Flame comments look something like this:
Fortunately for all, flamers and trolls are pretty rare on Squidoo, and when they do strike, lensmasters are quick to delete them
My Most Hated LensesI have a fan! O_O (Lots of them!)
Originally just one, but now 2 of my lenses are hated and blasted with flames. Here they are (note that flames have been deleted):
What Makes a Good Comment?
A good comment is one that you wrote after you took the time to at least read a little bit of the lens.
Both of those comments took about 5 seconds to type. They are quick, short, to the point, heart felt, and tell the lensmaster that you really did read their lens.
A really good comment would read something like this:
These comments both tell the lensmaster that you read the lens, and open up the way for a conversation between the commenter and the lensmaster.
Remember, you are allowed 1,000 chars in a comment. that gives you room to say quite a bit!
And remember this too: Links in comments are not a bad thing!
Links in comments are not a bad thing!
Half my readers just fainted.
I'll sit here and twiddle my thumbs while I wait for them to get over the shock of what I just said . . . oh look! an ice cream sandwich! I'll eat that while I wait.
Zaps Dalek with Sonic Screwdriver.
Good! You're awake again! You missed the war between the Daleks and the Time Lords while you were out of it. Let's continue . . .
I know, I just got off ranting about links in comments being spam, but not every link in every comment is spam. Spam is unwanted. Spam is off topic. Spam serves no purpose. Spam helps no one. And here's the shocker: Relevant links are NOT spam!
What is a relevant link?
If you have read a lot of my lenses, it won't be long before you see a pattern in my comment boxes. Not read enough to have noticed it yet? Well, I'll point it out to you than.
They are all the same! Every single comment box has the same message copied and pasted into it and here it is this (as copied off my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens):
The first thing you notice is the kitty picture. He's cute and that's why he's there. The sudden addition of a pink winged kitten makes the read stop and say "What's this?". Now even if they haven't read anything else on the lens, all of a sudden they are reading the intro on my guestbook, and changes are good that they will now leave a comment.
So what exactly is it I've done here and why do I do it? Simple. The way I see it, people are going to leave links to their Squidoo lenses in your comment box, wither you like it or not, that's just the way life is.
Now you have several choices. You can rave and moan and get mad about it. You can ban them from ever commenting on your lenses again. You could just delete them and hope they never post again. . .or
You could do what I do and ASK people to leave links in your comment box. Yes, that's right, I actually tell my readers to go ahead and leave links in my comment box. Why? Well, for one thing, they are going do it anyways. There really is no reason to get mad at them, they just want you to check out their new lens after all. So if they are going to leave a link anyways, why not do what I do and I ask them to leave an on-topic link?
In the example shown above, links that would be on topic for that lens would include InuYasha, CosPlaying, Japanese fashion history, Japanese swords, or costume making, because that is the topic of that lens. I change the criteria to match the particular lens, but the rest is always the same.
As noted earlier, I feature a lot of lenses by other lensmasters on my lenses, and this is how I find those lenses: simply by people asking politely if I would check out their lens and consider adding it.
I also join a lot of groups from group owners putting a link in their comment to their group and requesting I join my lens to it.
Since I have started doing this I get a lot less spam comments too. Seeing that request for on-topic links in comments has just about stopped all off-topic links from being put in comments on my lenses!
Sharing the Link Love in Reverse or Asking for Back Links
Do not be afraid to ask for back links!
If people really do like you lens, chances are good that they will put a link to it on their blog . . . they may even write a review about it. If it's a lens they REALLY REALLY like a lot they may want to stick it on their MySpace profile or link to it from their sig on a forum they visit.
Make it easy for them, by putting the code to do so right on your lens!
Look back at the message I copied off my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens comment box. Do you see where a code is shown, followed by what the code looks like when pasted on your page? Here is how you make that show up on you Squidoo lens:
copy the code below, and paste it into your comment box's description section.
Now remove the following from the code:
When you save and publish, you will get the code which your readers need to copy and paste, in order to link back to your lens, displayed on your comment box.
This is a quick and easy step to getting more free traffic to your lens, by letting others post your link on their own web sites.
You Mentioned Interacting With Your Readers. . .What Do You Mean By That?
I did? Where did I say that?
I think you're right. It does seem like I said that. I wonder where I said it?
Interacting with readers can be done in many ways. I'm doing it right now, by having a conversation with myself and the invisible reader who is asking the questions. It's weird but true, that by talking to yourself on your lenses, like I'm doing on this one, draws readers in to what you are saying and makes them feel like you are talking to them and them alone. A trick I picked up from writing fiction. Just write your lens as though you are writing dialog between two characters in your story.
That's one way to interact with your readers, here's another: Polls.
People love to vote on things. Everyone wants to make their vote count. How do I know this? I know this from the many forums I frequent. Here's an example of one forum topic that resulted in over 200 votes, and a near riot between side A voters and side B voters:
And my point is? I've seen the same thing happen on polls and duel boxes here on Squidoo. By adding polls, guestbooks, and duel modules, you are inviting reader interaction. The more of these polls you use on your lenses, the more your readers will interact with you and other readers and the more they will come back to keep posting and keep interacting.
Squidoo knows that polls and comment boxes and duel modules are good for your lenses, which is why they created their sister site: Hey Monkey Brain! The whole point of the Monkey Brain lenses is to ask a question, give two possible answers, and than set people loose on the lens to debate their brains out over it.
One Last Question. What's With the Pictures on This Lens?And where do you get them?
How dare you question my pictures! Snarls. Growls. Bares my long white teeth . . . oh . . . wait . . . no . . . wrong lens . . . I'm not CosPlaying a dog demon here am I? Let's try that again.
Pictures you say? Why? Is there something wrong with them?
Than, why'd you ask?
"Well, it's just that . . . they don't seem to match the topic of this lens, is all."
Aaahh! So you noticed that did you? Good. That means you were paying attention and you are about to learn one last thing about my Squidoo success:
PICTURES and LENS TOPIC RELEVANCY.
I use pictures on all of my lenses. Lots and lots of pictures. I take advantage of every available space that could fit a picture in it.
I always put a picture in the introduction box's logo space.
In the text modules, I make sure to always upload a picture.
Also in the text modules I make sure to add off-site hosted pictures. For this I use my PhotoBucket and ImageShack accounts.
I make use of the Polaroid module and add as many as possible.
I feature Amazon Spotlight items that have on-topic items, because of the big picture it adds to the lens.
When I feature lenses and lensmasters on my lenses, I'm more likely to feature them if they have loaded a picture into their intro box. If their lens is displaying the blank orange squid image, I'm likely to delete them off my lens.
And most important of all, I make sure that the pictures on my lenses are on-topic for the lens they are on, otherwise, my readers will do as you did on this lens, and do a double take and than wonder, why all these off-topic pictures are floating around for no reason at all.
I get my pictures from a lot of different sources. Some of the picture are screenshots off my DVDs (Pirates of the Carribean, InuYasha, etc), others came on copyright free discs I bought (animal-nature-travel pics etc), the ones with words and quotes I made on paint, the little moving smilie gifs were either made by a friend or found on a website that posts gifs to share, several pics came from a sig exchange site, a lot are scans from books and comic books I own (cover art, illustrations, etc) and the rest are my our art (paintings, drawings, and photographs made by me). I have a second hard-drive installed on my computer just for picture storage as my collection has over 300,000 images in it. I use them on all of my lenses.
As you may have noticed the pictures on this lens have nothing to do with the topic of the lens. I did that on purpose, to show you that, yes, these pictures look good, yes they are nice and colorful, yes they make the lens look better, but they also distract the reader, because they are off-topic.
The lesson here: Add pictures to your lens. People like to look at pictures. Add a lot of pictures to your lens. A single picture can speak louder than a thousand words. Put pictures everywhere . . . just make sure they are on-topic to the lens.
Be Relevant and On Topic in Everything!
When you add something to your lens, ask yourself:
Is it relevant?
Is it on-topic?
Does it help to get my message across to my readers?
If you answer no, to any of these questions than you should not be adding what ever it is to your lens.
In other words do not do this:I love My Lord Sesshomaru Costume Lens and put this link here for no reason at all! :P
Did you learn anything here?
Yes. I learned that you are insane, and I should never have asked you anything. (7%)
Yes, this lens was very helpful. (78%)
Uhm . . . I don't know, I was too distracted by the off topic pictures. (6%)
What? I'm sorry, I forgot everything I read when you jumped at me with those wolf fangs. (4%)
I'm am now more confused than ever. (3%)

Hymal Keydar: Dog Demon of the North
A wild Human girl with no manners, Dawa runs from the city guards, wanted for the crime of stealing bread, right into the arms of Hymal Keydar, a wandering prince from the Himalayas Alps. Seeing that the half starved girl is guilty of nothing more than being hungry, the strange prince buys the girl from the guards.
Fearing her new life as the prince's slave, Dawa finds herself treated like a princess, by a man with many dark secrets and a bevy of bounty hunters keeping him on the run.
