It's National Ghost Hunting Day and an event is going on starting at 9:30 pm that was meant for the collective to gather and join. Around the world, ghost hunters will be asking specific questions of the other side. If my thoughts on this matter are correct, the more people focusing their positive thoughts on this event, the more easily proof will be gathered.
Join the Largest Ghost Hunt. There are many ways to participate. Let's help protect these haunted historic sites, make the public aware of the amazing gains in ghost hunting, and get all citizens of Planet Earth to join their focus on communicating - with the other side!

Spontaneous Human Combustion is a term for people who seemed to burn at a very high temperature, without disturbing much or anything around them. This phenomena has baffled for many decades. Although some believe they have the answer to it, there are still odd holes in the theories that begs one to open the cases up and reexamine them.
Can one think of anything more horrifying than just burning from within?

Even though Route 66 is now I-40, its mid century roots and heyday are still remembered, only a bit worn for wear and desolate. There is a lot of industry that died when I-10 and other routes took away from this cross-country throughway. Let's have a look at just some of what is found in Arizona.

Ten years ago I started Ghost Hunting Theories and I named it this because my idea at the time was to share all mysteries or "ghosts" of the universe and all kinds of new ways of looking at them, to make people curious, to question, to participate in finding answers. I didn't now at the time what I was really embarking on -

A contest was offering a delightful tour of the French catacombs, dinner, a scary storytelling time, and then they leave you there to sleep....
You might have slept in a spooky place before, perhaps a seedy motel in a bad part of town, an arguing couple's home, a really old historic inn, but there are some places that would definitely not be sleep-friendly for most folks.

For those of us who love Halloween, it's not just a holiday, it's a season! That's why I wrote the book Adult Halloween: Taking Back the Season!
If you are nostalgic for childhood Halloween, get into the season and want to take it up a notch, wish you could just claim that time of year for yourself and not just the kiddies, then this book is an ideal read.
I cover everything from how to have Halloween in your everyday life, from your home and fashion, entertainment choices and collectibles.
I take the reader through ways to adult your Halloween:
Horrifying Halloween (much more hardcore horror)
Nostalgic/Traditional Halloween (50s/60s/70s, traditional autumn Halloween themes).
Gothic Halloween (for a classy adult take)
Sexy Halloween (definitely naughty adult!).
There is a section just for horror movie genre types for a 3-movie marathon using drink and food pairings for you guests. Themes include -
There is also a huge section of resources from where to shop for items to best Halloween horror movies, Facebook pages that support your love of Halloween, and YouTube channels to subscribe to.
When you are done with the book, I suspect you are going to refer to it often. I offer a lot of great concepts on how to adult your Halloween from activities and decorations to parties and games.
I've had a blast writing this one and am in the editing process right now. Expect it out this July and I will definitely let my readers know the minute it's up on Kindle!

The best thing about being in a relationship is getting to spend some quality time with your better half. Whether you’ve been together for ages or are a new couple, there is no better opportunity to do this than going out on a date. It is even more exciting when the date is something unusual that both of you will remember.

In this article, I will present you the best haunted locations you can take your date to for an adventurous and hair-raising romantic experience.

Researcher Don Monroe asked me to evaluate a cast from Honey Island, Louisiana 1972. When I saw it, I remembered a photo I was given a 3-toed print (above). I am trying to find out who sent me this pic so I can know how many decades apart and distance because this cast is, well, very similar to the Honey Island one -

Ancient giant footprints....
The Carson City ancient foot trackway dates around 50,000 years old and showed what appeared to be giant human footprints.
During sandstone quarrying operations in the late 1870's on the grounds of Nevada State Prison, in Carson City, a variety of animal tracks were found, including those of mammoth, bison, horse, deer, wolf, birds, as well as some large oblong tracks of uncertain origin. In 1882, sheriff W. J. Hanks of Storey County brought the find to the attention of H. W. Harkness of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Harkness identified the track beds as late Pliocene in age (approx. 2 million years old) and interpreted the problematic tracks as giant human footprints (Davis, 1912). Other geologists identified the prints as being near the Pliocene-Quaternary border, which would place them at about 1.6 million years by conventional geology, although Stock (1936) implied an age of only 50,000 years.
The prints in question were approximately 18 to 21 inches long and 8 to 9 inches wide. Though bearing a superficial resemblance to human prints, the tracks lacked obvious digit impressions and normal heel-ball-arch bottom contours typically found in human prints--features that Harkness explained by suggesting the giant trackmaker might have worn sandals. However, besides the enormous size and lack of distinct human features, the tracks also showed an unusual gait pattern, with a wide trackway gauge of 18 to 19 inches but very short average pace length (for the size of the prints) of only about 2 and a half feet.
This was said to be a giant sloth's print but here's a photo (below) of a giant sloth's print....
Considering these sandals (below) were found in Lovelock Cave, our culprit would appear to be a large human walking around Lake Lohontan about 50,000 years ago.
Today marks Cassandra Peterson's (aka "Elvira) birthday. It is also my birthday today.
Both of us love horror, have a sassy sense of humor and red hair. Perhaps there is something about being born on this day that brings up a darker tongue-in-cheek aspect.
Her life has been more interesting than anyone would know including being a showgirl/dancer, a lead singer in rock bands in Europe, even briefly dating Elvis, and then moving into acting, and eventually landing the unique and greatly-loved role as "Elvira," hostess to horror movies.
Happy birthday, Cassandra! You are beloved for daring to take on the world in many original roles, the most beloved of which is Elvira -

(Scarecrow by Pumpkinrot one of the greatest Halloween artisans I know. I get my Halloween cards from him every year and he makes a new scarecrow to commemorate each All Hallow's Eve)
When I was a child, I was obsessed with scarecrows. I wasn't sure they were effective. It seemed the crows like to use them to rest upon. But, those silent sentinels of country gardens were things of nightmares; a human-like figure crucified against the setting sun between rows of bright green corn stalks....
