Paranormal Activity Blamed for Abuse of Patients

Many paranormal investigators believe that hauntings can be caused by trauma suffered by people who lived in the past. The theory goes that the people who suffered these tragedies cannot “move on” to the afterlife, and thus are stuck here on Earth, doomed to forever answer questions and demands such as “is there anybody here […]

John Gray ghost hunters

Rockies Pitcher Jon Gray is Also a Ghost Hunter

I must admit, I have fallen out of love with baseball. Back in the day, I used to watch it all the time, sometimes intently and sometimes just as background noise while I did other things, but I was always around baseball. I especially loved the post-season, whether my beloved Yankees were in the fight […]

Photo of the Week: The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, CO

This week’s photo is of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado.

Laura Pennace usually tackles these stories, but as she’s on a sabbatical of sorts, I’ll take this one. Erie Police are on […]

Ghost hunters living in glass house throw stones

It truly irks me when people believe in one aspect of the paranormal and then ridicule people who believe in another aspect of the paranormal. […]

The Vault of Horror and The Stanley Hotel

No news to make fun of today. Or rather, I’m choosing not to make fun of any news items today. Don’t worry though, Laura has some stuff for the rest of this week that will make you laugh. Today I’m just doing a little shameless self-promotion, as well as some promotion for a friend. The […]

Initiative Would Create UFO Commission In Denver

I wish I had a chance to vote on something like this. In Denver, Colorado, now officially one of the more interesting cities in the country, residents will be voting next August as to whether or not to create a panel to study the possible existence UFOs. It’s pretty interesting that it will be up […]
