She's started picking up on it since she had a dream about him and woke up at like 3am to hear the radio on.....
My dad had the same kind of radio and neither my mom nor I have the heart to get rid of it. It turns itself on now and then, but it's nothing to be afraid of, I know it's my dad.

I've seen my boyfriends grandfather twice at his parents home. His grandfather passed away 18 years ago. To this day I won't stay alone at their place. I'm a big chicken.

I haven't seen any ghosts before. I went to the Winchester House in San Jose, CA which is supposed to be haunted, but didn't see anything. I really like old houses and buildings and the history they have. But then I get freaked out thinking about ghosts or people being killed in them.

My bf's parent's house is supposed to be haunted. Before they moved there 37 years ago, the previous family died. The father did a murder suicide on his 2 kids and wife. I found this out only a few weeks ago. My bf's brother in law and I were tlaking about scary movies and he told me that when he was first going out with my bf's sister, he stayed over at the parent's house in my bf's room. And he swears that he felt some presence in the room and was totally freaked out. When he told the family, they were like "Oh yeah, the guy who lived here before killed his family and himself." Nothing has ever happened besides this one time. I guess because the guy had a daughter, so he was being "protective". I haven't been there that many times, and haven't been there since I heard the story

Not really ghostly, but along the same general lines.

I have two sisters, one is 17 and one is 13. We can all pick up on things that the others are thinking and feeling. I feel like we are all kind of emotionally "tuned in" to each other and we can tell when the others are experiencing strong feelings.

Some examples:

When the 13-year-old was younger, she stayed with my mom's friend while the 17-year-old and I were at school. One day at school, I sprained my ankle in gym class. Apparently my sister turned to her babysitter and matter-of-factly announced, "Mel hurt her leg and she wants you to come and get her." 2 minutes later, the school called to have her pick me up.

Last weekend, I got an image in my head of the 17-year-old's face covered in tears. I couldn't shake it, so I called her...her boyfriend had unexpectedly broken up with her.

We creep our parents out.

Heading for Athens, Ohio this weekend. Reportedly one of the most haunted places in the country.

When I was around 5, me and my older sister both saw "something" human-like, glowing, and floating beside the top of a building (adjacent to our building). We saw this from our balcony and it was way past midnight. Our nanny would not believe us.


It was definately not my imagination, because we both saw the same thing. And it still freaks me out to this day.

I went on the Haunted Walking Tour of Old Town Alexandria last night. Lots of spooky stories, but no ghost sightings!

Does anyone else get freaked out when you're alone in the house and your dogs starts flipping out, barking at absolutely nothing?

sorry to tell you this, but you might just have a ghost in your house. i use to work with a lady who says that her house was haunted (lights going on and off) and the dog would bark all night. they have since moved and the dog is fine now.

they mentioned the video clip on this mornings radio station and i had to go check it out and see for myself.

Hilarious! I doesn't look real. It reminds me of the Blair Witch Project. The funny part is that guy screaming - (I can only imagine he's booking it out of there) "Por Favor!"

Art Bell Coast to Coast AM

For those of you that are up late, try to catch Coast to Coast am on the radio, lots of paranormal discussions, especially when they have representatives from the Ghost Investigators Society on with some really scary EVPs. Try to listen to some of these EVPs late at night with the lights off.

www.ghostpix.com

Also, on the SciFi Channel, Ghost Hunters is a decent show about, well, ghost hunters.....
