Texas Brine, LLC UPDATE October 19, 2012

1. Work on the Observation Well today focused on measuring the depths of the liquid hydrocarbon material floating on top of the brine, and measuring the depth to the bottom of cavern #3. Once complete, work will resume on removal of the liquid hydrocarbon material. As mentioned previously, liquid hydrocarbon removal will only be done during daylight hours.

2. Liquid hydrocarbon material removal continued on the sinkhole surface today through the use of several skimmers. Additional vegetation and debris that contained liquid hydrocarbon was moved toward the mat road today to allow removal beginning next Monday. […]

    Oil is under and coming in from the sides too so it will be a constant supply not just a deposit, it replenishes its self.

    "Liquid hydrocarbon material???" Didn't they already say it was crude oil? NOW what are they hiding from us?

      That's an interesting twist on things…meteorite showers. In this case, earth passing through Haley Comet's tail debris field and peaking this weekend.

      Homeland Security can't wait to tell us what is happening after they hard cover every explosive material exposed to a possible meteorite hit in the US. Including ammunition, bombs, fuel drums, storage tanks, swamp gases, etc.

        Hmmm….when you state it that way I cant help but think about how close we are to that bloody December 2012 myth….I usually don't give it much attention but I have to say the stack of all these elements, and the timing, lead me to something else more personal which gives the 2012 thing some brain-time today.

I have at least two kinds of dreams; one is *normal* and the other is what I think of as prophetic. The prophetic dreams are constructed in a manner where I am hopelessly entangled in the theme of the dream and it is profoundly film -viewed – played through my own eyes. I see it rather than am a character I am seeing within a dream.

        A couple years ago I had a dream, and it shook me because of the enormity of the vision, as well as it was definitely of the * prophetic* class I just defined. In it I opened my door and there was fire everywhere. And I mean fire. I wasn't scared – the outcome was obvious. Till now I had surmised this dream pertains to my other theory that the earth is orbiting the sun and that in the planets whole life cycle, it goes through freezing and hot times which are profoundly closer to the sun than anything we know or believe. I had thought the dream was of those close sun passes and everything on the planet ignited as a result. Hopefully I am wrong. Maybe it was just a…

    I'm sure Homeland Security will take charge of any press release wordings and censor all the panic causing information if there is any including censoring Anthony's vision.
