There Was No Bump

It is now spring – according to the Metrological Calendar – which is based on the Gregorian Calendar. The Gregorian Calendar took over from the less reliable Julian Calendar on Friday 15th October 1582. However, Wikipedia tells us the most reliable calendar of all is the Solar Hijri calendar. ‘As one of the most accurate calendar systems in the world, the Solar Hijri calendar is also known as Persian Calendar, Iranian Calendar, and SH Calendar. Solar Hijri calendars rely on the movement of the Earth around the Sun to calculate time.’

The mornings are definitely getting lighter and the evenings longer, and I am overjoyed. There is no doubt that this lengthening of daylight lifts the spirits.

As we are only at the beginning of March, nothing is happening in the fields, and as so many strange events have happened in the circles over the years, I thought I would delve back and tell you the story of something that occurred to one of my friends in 2001.

The earliest crop crop circles appear April in oil seed rape (canola) and this particular event was no exception.

The second formation I visited in 2001 was the Corhampton event. The farmer and his wife, Richard and Susanne Hall were most gracious hosts and accompanied us into the field with their baby Isaac. With us was a Japanese healer – Hirokazu Kobayashi, over on a brief visit and staying at the Buddhist monastery at Chithurs – together with my old friends David and Colette Ardagh. Hirokazu had longed to visit and experience a crop formation, so together we entered the formation.

It was a perfect morning, the air was clear and fresh and the sun had by now gained strength and warmth. The Halls could not stay long, so we proceeded with our examination and I buried the water bottles for my experiment*. It seemed a special place and Hirokazu conducted a mediation and healing ceremony. He was a unique person who radiated infectious happiness, peace and love. He gave all three of us healing, and such was our enjoyment we were loath to leave this magical place and return to the normal world.

Shortly before our Corhampton visit, Colette Ardagh had broken her collarbone and was having regular physiotherapy treatment. Whilst in the field, and without thinking that Colette might have a problem, I asked everyone to collect a few stones to mark where I had buried my bottles. To her amazement she was able to stretch out her damaged shoulder quite easily.

A few days later she attended her physiotherapy appointment. Her regular physiotherapist was on holiday, so she was seen by a locum who on examining her shoulder looked puzzled and asked Colette if she had really broken her collarbone as the usually permanent bump – marking where the bone mends – was not present! The physiotherapist was astonished as she had never seen this effect before.

David Ardagh, who suffered from a bad back, also noted a definite subsequent improvement.

*In an effort to try and find out why I was getting so many reports telling me of the strange and unexpected results experienced by people when visiting crop circles and having long been interested in and having read articles on the qualities of water, I devised a plan - much to the ridicule of my peers apart from professional engineer James Lyons (now retired) who specialised in electronics. His main career was in the aerospace industry - to bury 20ml bottles of water from the same source, inside the circle and compare them with bottles but buried outside the circle. Electrical engineer Dr Cyril Smith (Electromagnetic Man) advised me to use Volvic water to ensure a consistent base. Volvic water does not go beyond 4 Hz. I sent him the bottles, and his results showed a noticeable difference between the water buried inside the circle and the control sample buried outside.

Over the years, with the invaluable help of James Lyons, buried bottles of water have been sent to many laboratories – some aboard – using different accredited techniques. On several occasions the results have been so marked that they had to be retested, only to return with identical results.

I am no longer continuing with this area of research as I was asked to use much larger bottles by the laboratory testing for trace minerals. I am now concentrating on the temporary relief of Parkinson’s conducted by neuroscientist Paul Gerry. The day starts by conducting control tests in Avebury Sports and Social Club. We then proceed into a circle and repeat the tests. Finally, we conduct a third identical test which is conducted some distance from the circle.The three identical tests can then be compared and analysed.

Looking ahead, I am now taking bookings for my summer tours

Crop Circle Tours 2024

The first tour is on Thursday, July 25th. This comes with a special private evening entry into Stonehenge. It allows you to enter the inner circle, go right up to the stones, and feel the energy radiating from them. This is an optional extra to the cost of the crop circle tour.

My second tour is on Thursday, August 1st. After visiting the circles, there is an optional extra of flying over the circles and the sacred places nearby, such as the unique Avebury stone complex, Silbury Hill, and West Kennet Long Barrow. This is very popular; people return with smiles stretching from ear to ear.

I am ever curious to know what wonders we will be given this year – this is the ‘teasing’ time of using our imaginations. Will there be a theme? Whatever, they always leave us guessing!

Pilots and flight crew have some witty remarks:

I was on a crowded flight to Texas. A woman boarded with a very upset 3 year old who was crying and carrying on. You could tell she was already at her wits end. A flight attendant walked over and asked the baby’s name, which turned out to be Elias. A few moments later, a voice came out from the cockpit on the PA system.

“Elias? This is Santa.”

The little boy sat up, focused on the disembodied voice.

“Elias, I want you to be a good boy so I can bring you something really good at Christmas, so no crying or fussing, OK?”

The little boy was wide-eyed as he nodded. He was quiet the whole flight.


The pilot had really banged the plane onto the runway and was dreading having to stand at the door and thank the passengers as they exited. He was certain someone would have a comment, but no one did. He started to relax when everyone had gotten off except a little, old lady with a walker. But when she finally made it up the aisle, she stopped and asked, “Did we land or were we shot down?”


As a plane was flying it started shaking very badly and soon the pilot got on and announced I'm very sorry folks but we have just lost power to one of our engines we are going to try and restart it please remain calm .. a terrified man shouts out please tell us how far will one engine get us? Pilot pauses then answers the man, “All the way to the crash site. “


I had a late-night Southwest flight to Rochester NY last week. It was the terminus for a long flight that had stopped twice. The pilot thanked the passengers and then said: “Now I want to tell you the same thing my father told me on my 18th birthday. Get your stuff and get out!” and for the children on-board, we are nearly there and will remain nearly there till we get there!


This is your captain speaking. I’m working from home today. Have a safe flight!”


About half way between London and Paris on Christmas Eve the pilot came on the PA with an announcement:

“Ladies, Gentlemen and especially children: I’ve just seen Santa and his reindeer pass by our aircraft and wave to me, if the children will look out your windows now you might still get to see him.”

I'm not a child but I still looked.


We were waiting to take off at around midnight from LAX to New Zealand—a very long flight almost entirely over water with virtually no land in between. We were delayed because of a “malfunction.” The pilot came on the intercom and explained that he was waiting for a replacement part and that it would be arriving shortly. Groans were audible throughout the full 747. He then said: “Ladies and gentlemen, I share your disappointment. But we’re going on a long flight, and I can assure you that I would rather be on the ground wishing I were in the air, than in the air, wishing I were on the ground.” After a moment of stillness, applause erupted.


It actually came from a flight attendant about 15 years ago. "We have a woman pilot and a woman co-pilot on this flight. You are flying in an unmanned plane.


Years ago, there was a very low cost airline called PSA (Pacific Southwest Airlines). The other airlines hated the cheap competition. Once, I was on a United Airlines flight. As we flew over the Sacramento area, the pilot announced “If you look to your right, you will see PSA passengers deplaning from their flight.” Looking out the windows, we saw a group of skydivers jumping out of their plane.


With my love and best wishes,
