In this Redmond's Review, Darren covers two different levels of thinking.

Never believe? Then, you never will.

Remember, you have already proven you are so much better than, “you never will.” Heard any of these things in your life before, “Look at all those showing more talent in what ever activity you participate in, they are better than you, you will never pass them.” “I’d rather be honest with you than build up your hopes.” “How can you dream of a better life you can not even pay the mortgage.”

Do the above comments sound familiar? These are many times words of negativity presented by coaches, teachers, friends and sometimes family happen. They are presented as well meaning advice but often are cloaked in negative energy. What benefit is it to destroy ones dream? To murder ambition?

og: never
If you never believe, you never will. Even the oldest of homes are built on strong foundations.

I want to remind you that you are not to old to go back to school. You are not too broke to one day be rich. You, my friend, are talented enough to have that job, that school, or that significant other to pursue you! Do not let well meaning negativity rationalize your dreams away. Give no one that power.

Want proof of how terrific you are in beating the odds ? I will not go into the biological details, but when you, the you that is reading this was created, the essence of matter in constructing you, literally beat out thousands of others looking to become another version of you. You beat tremendous odds back then and did it on biological determination.

Think about it, with all you have learned and received since that time, what you can do when you are hyper focused. Let no one stand in your way. I believe you can.

How may one be honest when they steal the joy from others?

If you are so honest, why do you go out of your way to steal joy?

Honest, don’t let my title fool you. Hopefully, it will make sense in a matter of moments.

For the purpose of this article, contemplate if you can, if somehow you purposely (or not), try to steal others joy. Upon that reflection meditate then on why do you think you do this? Why do we, as a society, feel the need to label people and cut them down. We often we do this under the veil of humor for example around others who know that person. I am NOT referring to watching what you say, but rather for a moment ask yourself, ‘why do you say that in the first place?’ If somebody is happy as a child about a toy, or somebody as an adult is happy about something that’s happening in their life, why feel the need to criticize that? Are we in some measure making a conscious effort then to rob them of their joy?

og: honest
Someone who believes in being honest may not realize their actions are stealing the joy from others.

Whether we want to believe it or not we do not have a crystal ball that can read into peoples minds or intentions.

A personal ‘joy’ factor?

og: honest
Being honest is a form of giving, not taking. The joy of association is damaged when it is hurtful or taking from others.

A person who might want to share something that gives them joy, might be that person who was trying to hold on to feeling good about themselves or the choices that they have made. They may be looking for affirmation in some way as an attempt to share and belong. Why then, steal that moment of joy from them and what purpose are you truly serving? If a person’s joy is little more than an inconvenience to you, I suggest leave it alone and let them smile.

A better world?

og: honest
When can being honest take away from the joy of the sport? Teaching with negatives takes away the positives.

How much more loving would this world be if we just allowed people who are harming no one, to smile and feel joy? The truth is, we most often because of their close proximity to “our”daily life, go out of our way to steal this joy from those who live closest to us. If you don’t think you fall into this category sometimes, ask yourself to audit your actions in a supermarket parking lot. Or, when was the last time when you were in a group of people where you did NOT feel compelled to talk negatively about a common associate to all in the group?I humbly ask, make a conscious effort not too unconsciously steal someone else’s joy.

The 2015 Visalia UFO events have all remained a mystery. To date, with many inquiries to find out more from a number of sources, nothing more has been discovered.

This is the final article of the 2015 UFO events reported in the central California valley area. Unless, something else surfaces that could shed light on what occurred, Universal Digest has completed its investigation.


There were three previous articles posted in 2015 regarding sightings from February through May. Please view the articles as posted on Universal Digest.

After all the pictures from sources have previously been documented, there is one final video to be produced. With thanks to Dennis LeRoux of that is also a friend link site here, the following expansion and detail of the original 9-second video was produced. For the record, Dennis expected nothing nor asked for recognition for this video production. He offered it for further elaboration of the original event, only. His network and continued friendship is supported, here:


Since this time, our local networking has expanded. There are more of us who are continuing to keep a vigilance pointed skyward. Is it not interesting how we become so enmeshed in day-to-day lives we tend to not notice sometimes obvious events?

There are past reports and references that have been received, yet, here in Visalia, California, to be objective, speculation of what is flying around in the skies above us is just that, speculation. We here at Universal Digest refuse to embellish and/or sensationalize anything less than what can be proven. It is not to dissuade others from sending us information, it is just not to produce information based on conjecture.

As far as, interviews and interactions that have been conducted thus far, the sources remain valid and supported. These persons who approached us had no agendas and were actually reticent to even approach us or to divulge this information. In this light of respect to those who have trusted us from the beginning, they, too are most trusted and valued.

My opinion is, there should be more objective persons like Terry Wood and Debbie Mancini who should be recognized for being the humble, honest, and good people they are.

Universal Digest will always welcome and support honest and forthright contributors.
