This abandoned golf course in the center of an area of Phoenix referred to as Ahwatukee, has been sitting here a few years. There has been much debate over its future, but for now it has a very post-apocalyptic feel.

Christmas in the Desert!

That's not snow, it's seed pods, but wow, we know how to put on the colors in the Southwest. First week of December is our full colors for autumn and it's just in time for Christmas feel. Enjoy these videos and pics I took of a wonderful hike at Riparian Water Preserve in Gilbert, Arizona.

Antarctica's Para Mysteries

Antarctica is one of the most remote and inhospitable locations on Earth. Not many have been there relative to the world population and very few stay year-round, only die-hard researchers. Yet, this land of ice and penguins was not always covered in a sheet of extremely thick ice. At one time, the continent was part of the larger land mass that was on Earth that broke apart and drifted tens of millions of years ago. So, what kind of magic might be held within the ice?

Cloven Footprints!

"Devil's Footprints"

"It appears on Thursday night last, there was a very heavy snowfall in the neighbourhood of Exeter and the South of Devon. On the following morning the inhabitants of the above towns were surprised at discovering the footmarks of some strange and mysterious animal endowed with the power of ubiquity, as the footprints were to be seen in all kinds of unaccountable places – on the tops of houses and narrow walls, in gardens and court-yards, enclosed by high walls and pailings, as well in open fields."

Two New Possibly Troubled Dolls

Two more dolls that might have issues of unexplained arrived yesterday. One is a Shirley Temple doll (middle) identical to "Haunted Shirley" (far right) and I'm calling her "Green Eyes" and another is a startled-faced bean bag body doll I refer to as "Goo Goo Doll." 

Blog Entry Saturday: Playing in Snow

It's hard not to get a bit excited about the first snow. There is a child inside of all of us that wants to stomp some prints in the snow, make a snow angel, sled down a hill, or build a snowman. It's just instinctive.

Why Bigfoot IS a Hybrid

There are some repeated qualities described in Bigfoot that have led me come to the conclusion they are hybrids. There are interesting variations in descriptions of them, enough to make me wonder about what happens when two divergent beings within a species mate and what the results can be in the form of "defects," "exaggerated features," to "unusual size." It would appear that hybridization is a logical conclusion when you consider the following -

Ghost Hunting Theories: In the Field

I put together this short video summarizing just some of the highlights of running this special blog. Here is Ghost Hunting Theories - in the Field!

As a researcher, I'm only as meticulous as my research but I must be balanced by my investigations. Going out in the field and experiencing it an action changes the perspective greatly.

And it's not just ghosts I'm chasing. I chase horror, abandoned sites, lectures, Bigfoot, UFOs, publishing, documenting, recovering, exploring, and more. 

GHT in the field - expect even more this coming year!

Blog Entry Saturday: Scandinavian American Christmas

I grew up with a father who was Norwegian. In fact, his father changed their last name in 1928 after coming to America so that they would have an American name, thus I am Day and not Thorvaldsen. He was determined we had smorgasbord on Christmas Eve, opening the gifts that night. The only gifts on Christmas morn were Santa's gifts unwrapped. I love the look, feel and traditions of Scandinavian Christmas. Some of my grandmother's Swedish rituals and items were added to the mix. Let's have a look -

Haunted Shirley: Throws Herself

I'm not sure how Haunted Shirley feels about our move, but I was on the floor, tightening some screws on some drawers. I was 18 inches from her cart. She was on the cart, about 6 inches from the edge. While I'm leaning over on the floor working on this drawer, not touching her area at all, she came down on my head, having traveled about 2' total. Her porcelain head clanked my skull. Ow!

Journey to the Center of the Earth Week: The Spanish Mummies

This extraordinary story about a most unusual collection of mummies including giant ones and rather alien-looking ones is not a story from the 1800s or early 1900s. This is from the 2000s. And it will be told by the person who took the photographs, a researcher I highly respect. Be prepared to be amazed.

Journey to the Center of the Earth Week: Horrors in Caves!

Caves are more than the sites of mines and ancient hieroglyphs, the burial places of giants, and homes for bats. They can also be haunted. And, why not? In desperate times, caves were utilized for sanctuary and sometimes standoffs and, given the geology, they seem like ideal vessels in a feng shui sort of way, to retain and hold a kind of amplified haunting that is held captive in a cul-du-sac formation. I am utterly fascinated with the haunted cave phenomena. I cannot think of a better spirit vessel.

Let's have a look at some more infamous haunted caves....

Journey to the Center of the Earth Week: Potential Openings to Earth's Center?


The openings to the center of earth or hollow earth have been explored by man since the prehistoric times, no doubt.

Let's have a look at what some folks believe to be the entrances to earth's interior -

Journey to the Center of the Earth Week: Is It Possible?

Admittedly, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (the 1959 version based on the Jules Verne novel), is one of my favorite movies of all time. As a kid, I could watch it every time it came on and now I own it on disk, so I can see it endlessly!

Most Disturbing Clown Movies

From the white face to the maniacal laughter and drawn on tears, clowns have always had an unsettling reaction to children and adults alike. I don't know if we ever get over that discomfort as we grow older. From the bright hair, colorful billowing clothing and big shoes to the painted on smile, we inherently know something is amiss.
