Contact in the Desert: Luke’s Mother-in-Law Reports From the UFO Show


When we heard that our weekly advice columnist and favorite ex-cop/crazy cat lady was volunteering at a convention of UFO-buffs, we couldn’t resist asking her to send in her thoughts, and pictures. People paid big money to get in, but now you can hear one person’s account for free.


Hello all. I made it through the first day of Contact in the Desert. The event runs until Monday, but I only volunteered for Friday and Saturday. It was HOT, and I feel so sorry for the people who came who were not used to the heat. There is no shade at the event and some of the speakers were in the amphitheater. One of the big speakers, Erich Von Daniken, was moved from a room to the wide outdoors for this first talk. The poor man is in his late 70s and was melting. I have attached a photo of him on the outside stage. Sorry the pics are not very good as I was near the rear for the morning welcome. and then for the inside ones the lighting was not the greatest and speakers tend to move around a bit.


The next picture that I sent is is of 2 hand made pyramids. There are only a small handful of vendors at the event. Those who are there are mostly selling rocks, beads, incense and sage. Could not find a darn patch, T-shirt, bumper sticker etc to buy. The pyramids were some of the best I found and the larger one is about $200, but beautiful. They are made by At another booth for $20 I did seen a plastic alien strung with beads to make a necklace. It just does not go with my wardrobe. I was hoping a Contact in the Desert collector pin, patch, bumper sticker etc. Contact merch was not to be found. They are missing the boat on this source of revenue.


Anyway I got to see 3 more speakers after the morning welcome. The first was Robert Perala (pic white shirt, vest and cap). His talk was “Extraterrestrials and the Divine Intelligence”. I think Mr. Perala was my favorite speaker of the day. He was very lively and told funny stories. He told of when he was a boy he was taken by aliens, when he finally decided to make his story well known it was at a Mufon convention and he told to the story by chance to William Shatner. He said, “Can you imagine, I told Captain Kirk!” That got a good laugh from the group. He also spoke on time jumpers who are aliens and they can be shapeshifters, blue aliens and also reptilians. They come to Earth at various points of time all through history. For more information he can be reached at The Perala Report.


The next speaker of the day was Nick Redfern from England. (red shirt). He spoke on UK crop circles, Stonehenge, a UFO crash at White Sands missile range where alien scrolls were found. Another interesting topic was military flights over Mt. Ararat and photos of the Ark. We also learned about Acoustic Levitation , which is how sound waves can move objects; this fit into the theory on how the pyramids and other large stone monuments were constructed. Another interesting topic that he touched on was Project Blue Beam which has to do with the New World Order and to have us given up more of our rights than we are currently having to do. Mr Redfern can be reached at


Last but not least was Marshall Klarfeld. (pic with most of monitor) This was a special workshop and the ticket was an additional $25 beyond the event fee. This was to be a 2-hour workshop which lasted a bit over an hour. A good perk on this is that he is sending us one of his ebooks. This workshop was Gilgamesh 10. This was part film pitch – he is trying to get 3 movies made on the subject and has contacted Steven Spielberg. His passion is the history of the Anunnaki and ancient history of alien contact with Earth, primarily Gilgamesh and the Sumerians. He also touched on how there were the homo erectus then aliens came to Earth and their DNA was mixed to produce the homo sapiens and ever since we have made leaps and bounds in evolution and technology. The Anunnaki’s planet is in our solar system and they come back to Earth to provide progress. A good point that he made was that we all stem from this beginning and that Earth is killing itself over the concept of my God is better then your God, and the only way to save the Earth is to get over this issue.


Well folks, that was today’s adventure. Tomorrow morning I will be at the parking lot from 6:30-9:30 am and then working the George Noory lunch.


Well, I made it through the parking lot duty without getting run over or having anyone crash. Sorry, but I have not directed traffic in about 30 yrs when I was just out of the police academy. Did not like working traffic then, and I still do not like to work traffic. The only thing good about the traffic division as a cop was the motorcycles and those shiny black boots. Oh yea and all the motor officers had great mustaches. But I am getting off track – I’ve been in the heat all day and I’m fried.

The morning panel was in the amphitheater this morning from 8:30 to 10:30 so after I finished the parking detail I wandered over the the amphitheater for the last hour. The panel consisted of Erich Von Daniken, Stephen Bassett, Nick Redfern, Jason Marshall, Giorgio Tsoukalos and Marshall Klarfeld. There was Q&A from the audience and they spoke on contact with aliens, The Anunnaki, along with other topics.

When this ended my next duty spot was back at Friendship Hall where I was on Friday. I did not have to report until 11 am, but got there early and was able to hear 2 more speakers.


The first was Richard Dolan. I came in in the middle of his talk on Six Reasons Why UFOs Matter. He was speaking on the inevitability of change in society and how society will start to fail. One of the signs of failure will be food shortages, this will start the downfall of civilization as we know it today. We can either raise to the challage or fall. He is the host of Syfy Investigates on the Syfy channel.

Next on was Barbara Harris. She is from the local area and is part of the Morongo Basin Historical Society. She has been researching Giant Rock for many years along with George Van Tassel and his contact with aliens from Venus. She also spoke on this building of the Integratron out in Landers, CA, and related a story on how Howard Hughes used to come to the small restaurant that was at Giant Rock called Come On Inn, and how he was one of the first investors in the Integratron. She talked about the vortex at the Integratron where 3 aquafirs come together under the building. For more information see


But hold on to your hats everyone. I MET GEORGE NOORY!!!!!!!!!!!!. My last photos are of the the lunch that was for this very special luncheon. The next pic is Mr. Noory being interviewed and you saw the one at the top of this article featuring your Top Bot Mom with Mr. Noory. Jumping up and down. Since my husband died I listen to Coast to Coast every night. I got to tell him this and how when I wake up in the middle of the night I hear his wonderful voice. He was very nice and spent a few minutes speaking with me.

Mr. Noory took Q&A from the lunch group and went from table to table speaking to all of the guests and taking pics with the guests. Some of the things he touched on was that we all need to write our Congress people and stress that we need to protect the electric grid. He said that if the grid goes it will be 5+ years until we have power so a good share of the population will not survive. The grid can be taken out by solar flares, or nuclear explosion in the upper atmosphere. He touched on the situation in Gaza, Hamas and ISIS. You can hear Mr. Noory most nights on Coast to Coast Radio.


I had a great time at this event and things ran much smoother today then Friday. Most everyone seemed to be having a great time – today’s only complaints that I heard were about the heat.

Thanks to LYT for printing this (I read this over 3 times so I hope I have not caused him to much extra work) and I hope you all enjoyed. See you on Thursday in my normal spot. Until then be good to each other. Huggs


Well I changed my mind and went back to Contact in the Desert on Sunday. I decided to make use of my 1/2 day pass and not work, but enjoy the event. Boy, am I glad I went back. I got you all a picture of Yeoman Martha Landon (Miss Celeste Yarnall) from Star Trek (“The Apple”).


Ms. Yarnall spoke at the conference on Ancient Alien Goddesses. Besides acting in some of our fave TV series and movies (she got to kiss Elvis) went on to obtain her Ph.D, and wrote several books on holistic heathcare for dogs and cats. I have attached a link for her work on Ancient Alien Goddesses for you to enjoy. Also her newest book out June 3, 2014 is Paleo Dog, a book on health and nutrition for our four-legged babies.

I also went to the Byron Belitos lecture on the Genetic Legacy of Adam and Eve. He presented a short film on an Atlantis expedition and told us how Atlantis is also Eden. Adam and Eve were sent to Earth from another planet and they carried the genetic blueprint for what we know as humans. Also that aliens have been coming to our planet for years and intermarried with humans to progress the plant. Very interesting speaker – however due to some tech issues he was not able to fully use his allowed time. He recommend that we learn more on the Urantia Revelation – this is on the Seven Epochs of Earth’s history and destiny.

The next speaker was Erich Von Daniken on Unsolved Mysteries of the Past. As you know, one of his most famous writings was Chariots of the Gods. He touched on many topics, but one I found interesting was that thousands of years ago there were many space ships circling the Earth. Some of the colonies on some ships did not get along with other colonies and there was a large war in space and the explosions looked like shooting stars to those on Earth

Lastly I sat in on a Q & A with Giorgio Tsoukalos from the series Ancient Aliens. He also presented photos of an Ancient Alien site in Peru.

Well it has been a long, hot, but fun weekend out here in the desert. Thank you Mr Scott for beaming me up, and now please beam me back down to Earth and my other job.
