I have been fascinated with the past all my life. Although time travel is not possible (at least, as far as I know), we can still experience it through what I call "relics of the fourth dimension." Namely, as the old saying goes, "time marches on." We can't travel in the fourth dimension, except going forward in the present, but we can follow the trail of the fourth dimension. Along the way, people lose or discard items from their being. These relics are unintentional time capsules that give us as glimpse into their lives. Here on The Time Searchers blog, I will show some relics of the past that I have run across in our present. Sometimes when I am out on a relic hunt with the Colonial Relic Hunter, we know that we are not alone. There is more than just relics at these historical sites. Indeed, it could be said that there is a portal to the past, perhaps to another dimension, where that which once was, still is. A place where the real consorts with the shadows; the present fuses with the past, on Time Searchers: Ghost Relics.

HUGH HEFFNER TRIBUTE-A MAN WHO LIVED THE DREAM.

IT'S BEEN A BUSY WEEK AND I WAS VERY SADDENED TO HEAR THAT ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE ROLE MODELS, HUGH HEFFNER PASSED AWAY.  HE WAS A GUY THAT REALIZED THAT LIFE SHOULD BE LIVED ENJOYING THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE.  I LOVE THE DOCUMENTARIES ON HIM. HE TOLD HOW HE FOUND HIMSELF IN A DRAB LIFE IN A MARRIAGE THAT HE DIDN'T ENJOY ANYMORE.  HE REALIZED THAT HE HAD TO LIVE HIS DREAMS.  AND UNLIKE MOST, HE ACTUALLY WENT OUT AND DID LIVE HIS DREAMS.  CALL HIM WHAT YOU MAY AND SOME HAVE OVER THE YEARS, HE WAS COOL GUY WHO BUILT AN EMPIRE FOR HIMSELF.  IN HIS LATER YEARS, PLAYBOY SEEMED TAME AND SUBSCRIBERS DROPPED OFF.  HE LATER SOLD OUT PLAYBOY AND PART OF THE DEAL WAS THAT HE WOULD CONTINUE TO LIVE IN THE MANSION.  THE ABOVE LINK IS TO PART ONE OF A SHOW HE PRODUCED IN 1959, PLAYBOY'S PENTHOUSE.  I LIKE THIS PERIOD THE BEST BECAUSE IT MARKED THE RISE OF THE PLAYBOY EMPIRE WITH THE CLUBS AND CASINOS.  HEFF WOULD DRESS IN THE BEST SUITS AND DRIVE THE BEST CARS.  PLAYBOY WAS NOT JUST SOME STAG MAGAZINE.  IT WAS A LIFESTYLE OF STYLE, ELEGHENCE AND ENJOYING THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE.  HE LIVED THE AMERICAN DREAM.   HEFF, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU AND YOU STILL INSPIRE US.-THE TIME SEARCHER.
