Mystery Baby-Making Boulder

I can provide more information about the mystery boulder in our town square. It is a glaciated granite boulder, found in a local farmer's field, and dragged here as a conversation piece about 50 years ago. I have heard many stories about it -- the most interesting is that long ago it was used by the Indians of the area in fertility rituals. Any new bride climbing up and sitting on the stone would become pregnant within a year! I can testify that it has worked for my wife and two other local ladies!

Meteorite - Tip from Outer Space

In the park of the town I live is a meteorite, which has been in there since I can remember. I have no idea how long it has been here, or any of the history behind it. I live in Liberty in the west central part of Illinois. Enclosed is a picture my son took 3 years ago, the people I worked with could not believe it!

Yes, a very strange shape for a meteorite...
