  • If only we knew about this 10 years ago! I wasted a ton of money on garbage 'stop snoring' products like mouth guards, throat sprays, lozenges and nasal strips, to name just a few! None of them worked. My doctor explained to me that the only way I was going to fix my snoring was with an operation, although he did say it was a last resort. I am so glad I didn't risk it because after finding your program my snoring has considerably decreased! If only I knew about this 10 years ago! ♥♥♥ http://ishbv.com/snoringno/pdf

Let's Go to Detroit: Things to Do in Michigan

  1. 1. W H A T T O D O I N A N D A R O U N D T H E M O T O R C I T Y LET’S GO TO DETROIT
  2. 2. ELOISE: ASYLUM FOR THE DAMNED • Started as a poorhouse in 1830s • Evolved into massive institution with more than 10,000 residents during Great Depression (2,000+ over limit) • Transformed into mental hospital with TB tents on the sprawling property that had a farm, trolley and graveyard • Overgrown and fenced-off graveyard holds more than 7,000 lost souls (that make the ghost meter go nuts) • Located in Westland, Michigan • More photos and info at MichiganRadio.org and Friends of Eloise Facebook page
  3. 3. B U I L D I N G O N L E F T I S A B A N D O N E D , O N E O N R I G H T H O U S E S C O U N T Y O F F I C E S O N L O W E R T W O F L O O R S ELOISE ALLEYWAY
  4. 4. Another Eloise building, this one formerly for Alzheimer patients
  5. 5. Portal to hell on Eloise property
  6. 6. Close-up of Eloise portal to hell
  7. 7. F E N C E A N D O V E R G R O W N B R U S H I S A L L Y O U S E E O F T H E C E M E T E R Y , W H I C H I S A B O U T ½ M I L E D O W N T H E R O A D F R O M M A I N C O M P L E X ELOISE CEMETERY
  8. 8. T H E G H O S T M E T E R W E N T N U T S A L L T H E W A Y D O W N T H E E L O I S E C E M E T E R Y S T R E T C H , A N D T H E N L A T E R A T A N A D J A C E N T C E M E T E R Y . GHOST METER GOES NUTS
  9. 9. N O T E T H E G H O S T L Y G L O W B E H I N D D A D ’ S H E A D ( N O , I T I S N O T M E R E L Y S U N L I G H T - H A H A H ) GHOST BEHIND DAD
  10. 10. Another non-sunlight ghostly glow (oooo!)
  11. 11. Random house across from cemetery that kind of has a haunted look
  12. 12. House at some nearby “museum” that was supposed to house Eloise artifacts? “Museum” grounds were open only on Saturdays for about five minutes. It was Tuesday. We also think we had the wrong “museum” but were hungry and sick of driving around.
  13. 13. L U N C H I N T H E N E A R B Y P A R K I S A M U S T A F T E R E L O I S E , W I T H B L A C K S Q U I R R E L S ( A K A S Q A U E S ) T H A T L I K E B B Q S U N C H I P S . GARDEN CITY PARK
  14. 14. Squae we dubbed “bench boy”
  15. 15. REVAMPED DETROIT RIVERFRONT: DETROIT RIVERWALK • New rules prohibit sleazy clothing, blasting music and, after 6 p.m., unaccompanied minors under age 18. • A Michigan state park graces half the walk, which was transformed into natural habitat • Seemingly random artwork pops up along the walk • One of the art pieces was a disgusting painting of a dead deer trailing blood (not pictured) • Another was a painted car hood by our pal Tyree of Heidelberg Project fame (pictured)
  16. 16. Gotta get a brick for Sawyer!
  17. 17. Little Free Library with little free books!
  18. 18. Pet me!
  19. 19. BELLE ISLE • Had dirty diaper strewn on lawn when visited in 2010ish • State took it over in 2014, now charges a fee for entry • No more dirty diapers! • Has aquarium, some kind of zoo and annual Grand Prix • Mom and pal used to walk 8 miles from home in Detroit to go watch Dad play baseball when they were young sweethearts • Massive fountain is showpiece, commissioned to be built by money left by rich jerky guy after his death • Stipulation for building fountain was including a giant statue of rich jerky guy next to it • Ghost of “Woman in White” supposed to appear if you drive up to specific bridge and honk three times • Ghost didn’t come, but guy on bike looked at us weird
  20. 20. Don’t forget to stop by this once you’re off Belle Isle! (and finish off your Detroit trip with a Buddy’s pizza or dinner at Mexican Village)
  21. 21. Check out more fun stuff at ryngargulinski.com PHOTO: Me and folks at 2015 annual family picnic. THANKS FOR VIEWING!
