Ghosts and Goblins
Joe and I are HUGE fans of all the ghost hunter shows on TV these days. I love them all. Don't have a favorite. If it's about ghosts, I'm watching it. And I'm the biggest wuss there is, but for some reason the life after death phenomena is intriguing to me. We love to watch Paranormal State, which is usually kind of hokey but sometimes really creepy. They tend to seek out negative energies in haunted locations which is quite dangerous. I also like to watch Ghost Hunters which chronicles the investigations of TAPS - The Atlantic Paranormal Society out of Rhode Island. They never seem to find anything really good, but are really talented at working the watcher up right before a commercial break. lol!
Last night Joe and I attended a presentation at the local public library of the Ghost Seekers of Central New York. A team of 5 or 6 men and women that go to haunted locations to investigate ghostly activity. They showed a powerpoint presentation of an investigation that they did at the Erie Canal Village which is right outside of Rome. When we lived in Rome, we never did go there. But now I totally want to, knowing that it's possibly quite haunted! They showed lots of pictures of orbs, and a few EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena). The pictures of orbs were interesting, especially because last week, I was down in storage at the museum, photographing furniture for this project I was working on. It's all quite old in age, but there was one settee in particular that when I photographed it, many many orbs showed up in the picture. That was the only picture that contained the orbs. I suppose they could have been dust particles. But I was pretty freaked out all the same.
It was a fun presentation and appropriate for this time of year. Now at least I know Who TO Call... GHOST BUSTERS of CNY!

Got a ghost story? Leave a comment! I'd love to know if you've had any "experiences of the Paranormal!"
